    It almost looks like a 7.


    It is a 7. It cost 7G.

    ZOMBIE TREEFOLK!?!

    They've combined two of my favorite creature types and even managed to give it some nifty artwork. If the card isn't good, or at least playable, I'm crying.

    Aliens...

    literally. See, Planeswalkers are alien to the plane (or area) except of their birth, so it's an appropriate response. Rolleyes


    That and Planeswalkers can go in weird places and survive, in example a maelstrom. It still would be quite dangerous though.

    One cool thing we can determine from these packaging sets is that the two cards featured on the Event Decks must be somewhat good. That means that Devil riding the Ashenhound and whatever that other thing is are probably competitively playable, because of the packs we have seen previously contain mostly playable cards.

    So Gravecrawler looks nothing like I imagined... it's like something from The RING.... The demon looks kinda spooky I guess.

    Quote from signofzeta


    OH MY GAWD YES THATS SO COOL

    I'm thinking it'll be something like this

    Jar of Eyeballs 1
    Artifact
    Jar of Eyeballs comes into play with 3 eyeball counters on it.
    T, Remove an eyeball counter from Jar of Eyeballs: Look at the top three cards of target player's library.
    If Jar of Eyeballs has no eyeball counters on it, transform Jar of Eyeballs.
    -----
    Eyeball Monstrosity (Blue)
    Creature - Zombie Horror
    Flying
    Your opponents must play with their hands revealed.
    3/4

    It's a transform card that turns into some kind of weird monster. MaRo said they'd be doning some non-creature transform cards in DKA. My bet this is one of them.


    One of those Poster-Boy Eyeball Monsters that I always see on Dungeons & Dragons Products when I'm at the bookstore?

    Quote from RealOG47
    If I had to make a prediction about the types of foil cards on the front of each of the intro packs, I would guess:

    W/R - Angel
    B/W - Vampire
    R/G - Devil
    U/W - Spirit or Sphinx (I'm leaning toward spirit, because I think the Sphinx of the block will be mythic like the dragon of the block was mythic)
    G/U - Graveyard related creature (as compared to Boneyard Wurm, Splinterfright, etc. This would be a mild disappointment considering one of the Event deck from INS had a similar theme)

    I'm more confident about the first three than the last two. But those are my predictions. I agree with those who don't think any of the intro packs will be associated with Werewolves.

    @ Master Moja: the speculation about the Mythic legendary Werewolf comes partly from the fact that they said that it simply got "pushed back", all the other tribes have a mythic creature, and they have said there will be no DFCs in Avacyn Restored. Therefore, if they do a mythic werewolf, like they said they would, they would have to do it now, unless they were willing to break some of their own rules.


    OKay, that makes sense. I don't remember reading that article, and I was wondering where everyone was getting the information haha.

    I can also agree with you on most of your assumptions on the intro packs front cards, however, the UW (Which is actually UB) deck looks more like a mad scientist. It may be a spirit, though.

    Where does the speculation from a Mythic Rare Werewolf card come from? Is it because all of the other tribes have received a legendary creature for their tribe so far?

    I really hope that it's some kind of Ponder-like effect at instant speed with a flashback cost that doesn't cost mana.

    I can only hope.... and wait until Monday.


    That would be absolutely amazing. AND played heavily!

    Quote from TK-421
    It's not so much that they don't care, as that they've only been able to cast illusionary (glamer) magic that allows them to walk among the humans. This may mean they've gotten some new powers since we last saw them.


    It says here that vampires learn all sorts of magic,

    http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/stf/167

    but only when they get a bit older for some reason. I doubt this little girl vampire is an elder, so that makes me agree that maybe they're becoming a lot more powerful!

    This is definitely cool. The first part I loved about it was the fact they said it was FREE, which is great. It looks like a decent app, too. Nice set up, not to mention it has so many functions. I love how you can check prices, see SPOILERS and news, and even build decks! Wizards definitely gets an A on this idea. I bet the new Fee for the sets released is probably like 99 cents, which I could see being useful as well as rather cheap, too. If you play MTG a lot, this is definitely worth it.

    Maro tweeted that there would be a card spoiled from this set of pics come Monday. In another tweet he says he would preview the jar full of eyeballs : )


    I'm excited! What if the Jar of Eyes is some wild version of Ponder in artifact form? A scrying ability that lets all those eyes see what comes next. Just a though.

    Quote from Gojira X
    Disagree that there will be a cycle of wedge legends or lands and such. There are only four decks, not a very good way to do a cycle of five. That and the original PCH had no pattern. The artifact deck was five color, I'd like them to keep the decks varied.

    I think it's pretty good bet that the ninja deck will be UB.


    Yes yes and yes. Exactly what I was thinking. There will be no systematic build, they'll all be different, unlike commander.
