    And for the last Weatherlight Saga character, we have...


    Greven, Predator Captain 3BR
    Legendary Creature- Human Warrior
    Menace
    Greven, Predator Captain gets +X/+0, where X is the amount of life you've lost this turn.
    Whenever Greven attacks, you may sacrifice another creature. If you do, you draw cards equal to that creature's power and you lose life equal to that creature's toughness.
    5/5

    I honestly want to see what the story behind this is.


    Yeah, I don't think this is Zendikar.

    Innistrad? Maybe one of the last planes the big three tried to devour before their imprisonment on Zendikar?

    What is the flavour behind the clone wall?
    I don't get it. The art is meaningless.

    Looks like it's the same as Mirage Mirror and Mirror of the Forebears as a mirror clone, except this one doesn't move, and traps the original behind it.

    Quote from HighHolder »
    Indestructible would allow him to survive when my opponent sends him into a board of eldrazi or wurms or whatever on defense. Sac outlets are everywhere in edh, so expect him to be saced as well

    Read the card again. You still choose which opponent Tahngarth swings into. If your opponent isn't attacking anyone you want to deal damage to, you can even choose to hold Tahngarth back for this specific combat phase.

    Thieving Amalgam 5BB
    Creature- Ape Snake
    At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep, manifest the top card of that player's library. (Put it onto the battlefield face down as a 2/2 creature. Turn it face up any time for its mana cost if it's a creature card.)
    Whenever a creature you control but don't own dies, its owner loses 2 life and you gain 2 life.
    6/7

    Quote from Manite »
    So, they put the legend that reanimates creatures and artifacts in the deck focused on instants and sorceries?

    It's the only graveyard-focused deck, plus the only spell previewed so far for it is a reanimator spell.

    Aren't all vat-made Phyrexians technically Yawgmoth's children anyways? Plus, he's one of the most powerful Phyrexians of all time. If anyone deserves that title, it's him.

    Boros got another great commander. I just hope this is not in the populate deck as I feel like it will be under appreciated there.

    He's probably in the flashback deck, since that's the white deck that cares about the graveyard.

    The , Son of Yawgmoth part is unfortunately misleading. Thats my only critique. The card s good.

    He gives himself the son of Yawgmoth title in the novel he's in. Not really that confusing.

    So the Command Zone is the main preview site now.

    How do people feel about WotC previewing cards within a week now instead of 2~3? As much as I like seeing new cards I actually prefer them do it slower.


    Supplemental sets like Commander precons have always had one-week previews, so this isn't new.

    I must say that since the return of the core sets they have been spot on. Haven't been this interested in a core set since magic origins.
    Good mix of interesting new cards and good reprints for eternal formats. Hope they keep this up Smile


    I don't disagree with your comments but I think it is funny to say that you haven't been this interested in a core set since Origins... Core 2019 being the only set since Origins.

    Leyline + Cage could be reprinted now maybe because there is a lack of graveyard decks in the next year. Think of Crucible of Worlds and Scapeshift. They were not played in Standard at all. Leyline and Cage are very strong cards and I am guessing that if they had a graveyard theme they would not want to squash it with such powerful hate.

    It also helps to sell packs of Core Sets.

    I was thinking this too. No graveyard strategy with Standard's power level will survive this much hate, so they're doing this for reprints and reprints alone.

    Wasn't the full spoiler supposed to be up on Monday (only one week of spoilers)? Did I miss something?

    Anyway, nice card for Elemental tribal. The synergy with Vesperlark is sweet.

    The article outlining who spoils what says we'll get the full spoiler in a few hours. Monday and the weekend got some extra spoilers to the "one week spoiler season."

    Quote from LuckyJoe1988 »
    I must apologize as I am typing this from my phone and this site has a difficult interface to use via Android. I'll attempt to respond the best that I can.

    For your first point, The support with how 10-colored lands are utilized in sets/blocks is undermined when they keep only doing five of the duals, enemy or allied, at a time. I am not sure how you came to another conclusion other than cycles for dual lands not being completed in set/blocks, but I suppose we will have to agree to disagree there.

    For the second point, I shared that link and made my statement in an attempt to show that not only is WOTC not listening to their fans and players, but change their minds frequently which causes confusion from previous stated promises and efforts made on their part.

    For your third point, I had assumed we would be on the same page on parts of this, and the issue isn't what a lot of players want in regards to designs and such in the game, as that too is also a straw-man issue, but rather to appease the player base as they had not only promised, but were prepared to do in the past with 10-colored support. There is nothing that should have stopped them then, let alone now. R&D are still playtesting and removing kinks and trying to get it all figured out which doesn't take a genius. (That was not an insult at you, rather at the fact that many changes can still be made for the future for R&D where it seems many of their choices are idiotic)


    Not sure why no one has brought this up yet, but the actual reason we don't get full 10-card dual land cycles is that Wizards only wants 20 dual lands at most in Standard.
