Warning, spoilers ahead! We’ve just gotten a peek at six of the new cards appearing in the next Magic The Gathering set – Rise of The Eldrazi. We had quite some time to look at Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, but these next cards revealed tell much more about what’s to come.
Mammoth Umbra, the first card featuring Totem armor. Simple enough mechanic, but it’s definitely going to be strong. Basically great creature buffing without the risk of going 2 for 1 to a removal spell. Excellent to toss on those immense Eldrazi!
Mnemonic Wall. Amazing, we’ve wanted something like this for a long time. Part Scrivener, part Anarchist, with the ability to get back either an instant or a sorcery and offering a solid ground body as well.
Corpsehatch, Well well, its removal and it’s going to give you some Spawns as well to help fuel those giant casting cost Eldrazi. Seems like a perfectly themed addition to a set focused on launching assaults with giants. Definitely a little expensive for a sorcery speed removal card, though.
Valakut Fireboar. Not especially the most creative card and he’s not likely to see play outside of limited, but he definitely has potential to lay out some hilarious beats. A huge defender and an equally huge attacker, it will be interesting to set up turns around this swapping swine.
Prey’s Vengeance. We get a look at the Rebound mechanic here with the set’s Giant Growth. Looks like a fairly strong ability, it’s always nice to get a second play of a spell for free, even if it’s not exactly when you’d like it to go off.
And last but definitely not least – an uncommon Eldrazi, Pathrazer of Ulamog. While not as mean or nasty as Kozilek, he’s still a definite game winner if he’s out for a turn or two, and in the uncommon slot he’ll see plenty of play. Shaping up to be a TImmy world, this one.
