The final day of Planechase 2 spoilers, supposedly

Supposedly today is the last day of Planechase 2 spoilers, but we’re still missing out on new cards, new planes and new phenomena! Will everything be completed? I hope so because I have to be up at 4 am this morning. The things I do for you.

From the mothership…

From Magic Friends comes a new goblin:

Beetleback Chief 2RR
Creature – Goblin Warrior (U)
When Beetleback Chief enters the battlefield, put two 1/1 red Goblin creature tokens onto the battlefield.

And it looks like stores are starting to get copies, so the boxes have revealed three cards in full:

Dreampod Druid 1G
Creature – Human Druid (U)
At the beginning of each upkeep, if Dreampod Druid is enchanted, put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token onto the battlefield.

Indrik Umbra 4GW
Enchantment – Aura (R)
Enchant Creature
Enchanted creature gets +4/+4 and gains first strike, and all creatures able to block it do so.
Totem Armor

Mass Mutiny 3RR
Sorcery (R)
For each opponent, gain control of target creature that player controls until end of turn. Untap those creatures. They gain haste until end of turn.

With over half the new cards spoiled in Planechase 2, we’re in the home stretch!

In the middle of yesterday, we broke the half way point of Planechase 2 spoilers! Now on to the cards!

From the mothership:

Grove of the Dreampods has been revealed in English as well.

Hedron Fields of Agadeem
Plane — Zendikar
Creatures with power 7 or more can’t attack or block.
Whenever you roll Chaos, put onto the battlefield a 7/7 colorless Eldrazi with Annihilator 1

To see everything we’ve gotten, check out the Planechase 2 Visual Spoiler.

Half of the Planechase 2 cards have been spoiled, but not half the planes!

Since this is the only week of previews for Planechase 2, we’re about half-way done with reveals (provided you don’t want to know about reprints).

First up is the mothership as always:

From Magic Corporation (in French as always):

~Grove of Dreampods~
Plane – Fabacin?
When you planswalk to CARDNAME or at beginning of your upkeep, reveal cards from your library until you reveal a creature card. Put that card onto the battlefield and the rest on the bottom of your deck in any order.
Whenever you roll CHAOS, return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield.

From TCGPlayer we get a new plane and some final information:

The Day of Judgment phenomenon comes from ChannelFireball. Morphic Tide is from Reddit (hi guys!).

For those seeking madness in the Maelstrom, check out our Planechase 2 visual spoiler!

I hope Planechase 2 has a plainswalker revealed in today’s spoilers!

Know what Magic needs? More plainswalkers. And antelopes. Sadly, I don’t think Planechase 2 will be providing anything along those lines so I’m stuck with just showing off the newest spoilers.

Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 shows a glimpse at a new plane in the newest video:

Can’t read it? It looks like a new take on Dueling Grounds. Here’s what I think it says:

No more than one creature can attack each combat.
No more than one creature can block each combat.
Whenever you roll CHAOS, Astral Arena deals 2 damage to each creature.

Now the Mothership is showing off the following:

From Star City Games comes a return to Mirrodin before the Phyrexians…

Lion Umbra 1W
Enchantment – Aura
Enchant creature
Enchanted creature gets lifelink.
1W: Put ~ on target creature you control.
Totem armor

Baleful Strix comes from Norske Magic. The new umbra comes from PlanetMTG.

Be sure to check out our absurdly convoluted Planechase 2 visual spoiler! You’ll feel like you’re IN the Blind Eternities!

Planechase 2 spoilers for both Monday and the weekend!

The Mothership has started the official Planechase 2 spoilers for the week and here are what is being shown off:

In other craziness, I know GatheringMagic is eager to show off there findings too:

From @Wizards_Magic on Twitter:

Finally, like the cool only child who gets everything, MTGSalvation once again releases the hounds when it comes to spoilers and has a new phenomenon, two planes and six and a half new cards! Talk about unfair!

Dawn and Night battle it out in today’s Planechase 2 spoilers! got the honor of showing off the first spoilers for Planechase 2 that really have nothing to do with Planechase at all! They are fantastic new additions to Commander though thanks to some absurd casting costs and even better abilities.

Krond the Dawn-Clad is an interesting choice thanks to an absurdly unsplashable casting cost. As a white-green commander, I love anyone who plays well with Armadillo Cloak and this guy certainly does. The combination of offensive and defensive capabilities makes me very interested in him, but I’m not sure he has enough to make him a top tier Commander.

For multiplayer though, I love how this guy works in reanimating decks thanks to the simple fact that Animate Dead is an aura.

Vela the Night-Clad looks an awful lot like a shadow priestess I used to run in World of Warcraft. The evasion combined with mass evasion makes me very interested, but I really love her final ability. It triggers whenever someone leaves the battlefield which is very interesting when combined with ninjitsu and phasing (who expected those abilities to ever be paired up). Add in the rise of flickering effects from Avacyn Restored and I’m very interested in seeing what this card can do.

This brings the Planechase 2 visual spoiler up to four cards in all.

Planechase 2 Spoilers have officially begun!

With the release of Planechase 2 just a matter of weeks away, it’s about time the spoilers have started being revealed.  It’s been almost six months since we saw or heard anything on the set when Wizards showed off these two cards:

But now there are some new things being leaked left and right. MTGSalvation is the source for four potentially leaked cards:

Legendary Ninja 3UUBB
Ninjustu 2UUBB
When ~ deals damage to a player, look at that players and hand and cast an instant or sorcery spell from it.

Mana Rock 3
T: Add one mana of any colour
T: Roll the planer Dice

New card with cascade is a 2/2 for 1GU

UB artifact creature
Deathtouch, flying
When ETB, draw a card

There there is the newest Planechase Promo! If Tazeem is any indicator, get this one while you can!

Stairs to Infinity
Plane – Xerex
Players have no maximum hand size.
Whenever you roll the planar die, draw a card.
Whenever you roll chaos, reveal the top card of your planar deck. You may put it on the bottom of your planar deck.

With Planechase 2 being similar to Commander, we will only be tracking new cards spoiled. This includes 21 new cards, 32 new Planes and 8 new Phenomena. You can find out 61 card visual spoiler here.

Dark Ascension Casual & Commander Review: Multicolor, Artifacts & Lands

Whenever a set isn’t about gold or multicolor as a theme, the few and far between gold cards really help bring the set together. And Dark Ascension certainly does that – unless you happen to like Green-White. Well, then you better enjoy some artifacts and none of the lands either.

Dark Ascension Commander & Casual Review
White | Blue | Black | Red | Green | Multicolor, Artifact & Land

Diregraf Captain

It took years, but Wizards seems to have realized lords are better when they’re easier to obtain. Making the shift so a bunch of them are uncommon is a genius move since it makes it so much easier for players to get a hold of them. But what I really like is that they are gold. Diregraf Captain is a great way to tie together black-blue zombies.

On the surface, this Captain reminds me a lot of Dralnu’s Crusade but it goes so much deeper. Having deathtouch makes him a pricey target to trade with in combat. Then he pumps everyone in a great way. And then Wizards gave him the ability to eat away at your opponents’ life totals! This is an amazing lord and I can’t wait to build some black-blue zombies.

Dark Ascension Casual & Commander Review: Green

I don’t know why, but it seems like Dark Ascension is jammed packed full of green two-drops.  But the rest of the set provides some fascinating cards that green usually doesn’t get access to and I am very excited whenever green gets more card drawing.

White | Blue | Black | Red | Green | Multicolor, Artifact & Land

Briarpack Alpha

I remember when this card was called Briarhorn and it was a lot better. Still, it’s a neat combat trick.
