[RIX] Rivals of Ixalan Spoilers

52 posts in this topic

Ghalta probably isn't great competitively, but I think you can reliably get it to be something like a 4GG 12/12 trample, maybe. I feel like it's going to be like Metalwork Colossus, where you can curve out perfectly and wreck face one game and then the in the next you just have it clogging up your hand with no way to cast it.


But hey, speaking of curving out perfectly, it'll probably never happen in a real game but it's fun to think about. Turns 2, 3, and 4.

Turn 1: Toolcraft Exemplar, Turn 2: Servant of the Conduit, Turn 3: Cultivator's Caravan, pass to 2nd main phase, tap Caravan to float <G>, crew caravan with exemplar (now a 3/2), tap Servant for <G>, 10 power on board, <G><G> floating, cast Ghalta.

Or, go with the Nayasaurs deck: Turn 1: Kinjalli's Caller, Turn 2: Otepec Huntmaster, Turn 3: Regiasaur Alpha. 9 power on board, 2 cost reduction. T4: Ghalta, with haste!

Honestly the big spoiler is the Adept here.. that one card may be able to get Merfolk Standard a possibility. Im sure there will be more as well but its a nice reprint for Modern (not that it was expensive)

A couple of very powerful cards that were spoiled on twitter, and then deleted (oops!)

Yes, that is the IMMORTAL SUN

Legendary Artifact - M

Players can't activate Loyalty abilities of Planeswalkers.

At the beginning of your draw step, draw an additional card.

Spells you cast cost 1 less to cast.

Creatures you control get +1/+1.

 

--

And the dragon? Total flavour win

Tetzimoc, Primordial Death - 4BB

Legendary Creature - Elder Dinosaur - R

Deathtouch

B, Reveal ~ from your hand: Put a Prey counter on target creature. Only activate this ability during your turn.

When ~ enters the battlefield destroy all creatures with a Prey counter on it your opponents control.

6/6

Finally, some planeswalker hate!

6 mana is a tad expensive for shutting down planewalkers, but the Sun has an impressive set of extra effects. If a deck appears that can ramp it out a couple of turns early, it could be a big hit in Standard. Once Kaladesh rotates out obviously, it doesn't really stop Energy decks pounding your face with enormous Longtusk Cubs and Bristling Hydras. Come on Wizards, I dare you to ban Attune with Aether!

Yeah, too slow for Standard....typical "OMG PLAY THIS IN EDH" that WOTC loves to force these days...

To be fair, it's probably going to be great in EDH, most players that aren't running a ton of planeswalkers could probably run one

Some pirate love, kinda.  At -3 not exactly a lot of pirate love but it's a little.

Vraska turns your creatures into Phage :D

So, we have a new ability. "Ascend." I'm not sure if they are going to be different requirements to unlock "City's Blessing" or if it's going to require 10 permanents with every card.

Vona's Hunger [RIX]http://www.magicspoiler.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Citys-Blessing-Token.png
 
 
And here are some other things that have been spoiled since the last post:
 
Captain's Hook [RIX]
 
 
Storm the Vault [RIX]Vault of Catlacan [RIX]

Not exact spoilers, but these photos from the art book confirm the 5 colour Elder Dinos + 3 headed elder, Azor creating the immortal sun and being the sphinx art spoiled earlier, and Kumena and Elena cards (maybe?).
