With Commander only two weeks old, Wizards seems to be really eager to start talking about their latest core set – Magic 2012 with these new spoilers!

From the Mothership brings us Primordial Hydra and Vengeful Pharaoh:

Star City Games makes me giddy with excitement by showing off Scrambleverse:

Quiet Speculation shows off the “green-morphling” (no, not Thornling) and debuts Skinshifter!

In addition to these gems, several sites are reporting that the full titan cycle has returned with Sun Titan, Frost Titan and Grave Titan back in the game. Sounds likely since Primeval Titan and Inferno Titan have been known for a while.

MTGCards has debuted the return of the Worldslayer!

Wizards is trying something new at Pro Tour Nagoya by having people walk around with QR codes on their backs that link to secret images revealing new cards from Magic 2012. Like this one:
