Only around 20 cards have been spoiled so far from http://mtgsalvation.com/scars-of-mirrodin-spoiler.html#4521 and wow, things do not look good, in a good way! As in NOTHING LOOKS BAD AS IN EVERYTHING LOOKS WOOOOOH POWERFUL! Sure, you know the days of Goblin Hero are long gone, but the standard keeps getting higher and higher! Now we're talking about a planeswalker that gives 3+ turns of unblockable to your creatures though at least his cost is fair. Unlike the Wurmcoil Engine!
6 colorless for a 6/6. Okay, not a bad threat that any deck can use. Now give it deathtouch, well, that's not much, 6/6 hardly needs deathtouch. Now give it Lifelink! And now you have John-Everydecks late game. But, at least it's fragile, right? Everything from Naturalize, to Shatter, to Doomblade gets it. Well, it appears we can't get a good card, that is good in it's own right anymore, not since Jund anyways, people want that one card to be more then just that one card! So now, when you kill the Wurmcoil, it splits in half, giving you a 3/3 deathtouch, and a 3/3 lifelink. Mmmmhmmm.
|"It's an okay card I guess, but my opponent can just Doomblade it, and then I got nothing!"|
Okay, I guess that's a little extreme, but my jaw dropped a little bit at that card.
Now, as I talk about Memnite, I want you to close your eyes and imagine if it was in during the Reign of Ravager. 0, for a 1/1 artifact creature. yep, that's now the importance of creatures, an uncommon, no cost body. I think it's kinda cute myself, speaking of cute, I'd like to welcome back the alloy/mana myrs! I love these little fellas, perfect addition to an casual deck. Well, this was just a rant post. I'll come back tomorrow to give what I like, hopefully there will be more spoilers around then!
