War of the Spark Spoilers

28 posts in this topic

Well, they have begun! I recommend checking out Scryfall's preview page since they list the source of the original preview:

https://scryfall.com/sets/war?order=spoiled&as=grid

It looks like uncommon planeswalkers are indeed a thing. They're basically glorified enchantments though.

Davriel actually looks pretty sweet for 8-Rack, it's another payoff for forcing your opponent to discard their hand, PLUS it has a repeatable way to make them discard. Seems pretty decent!

Also: Amass is a new mechanic. So there is a "Zombie Army" token. If you don't have on you create one, then you put +1/+1 counters on it equal to the Amass number. So basically it allows you to build a giant creature.

Also, remember Fblthp from Totally Lost? HE'S AN ACTUAL CARD NOW!!!

Also...he's still totally lost. I actually thought this art was fake at first .XD

Other notable cards:

Insane boardwipe that lets you save one of your own creatures:

Another janky "Play cards off the top of your library" type of card. Seems potentially crazy in Commander possibly?

I don't know if 5-color Super Friends will be a thing, but this will help:

If you want everyone at your Commander to hate you.

Also someone on Twitter pointed out this combo, which is going to be Standard-legal. If you have 10-mana, you get to Wrath every single turn, but even with just 5 you can Wrath every-other turn, which is still going to be difficult to get damage through if you're trying to win with creatures.
(You wrath the board with Time Wipe, choose Salvager of Secrets as the creature you bounce, then play the Salvager to get the Time Wipe back. Rinse and repeat.)

This set is seriously bonkers... a few that stand out to me.

1. A blink for ANY type of permanent? Reset planeswalkers, Bojuka Bog's... 

2. Card advantage and ramp, and a VERY high starting loyalty.

3. Card advantage and giving flash = powerful

4. New EDH staple? I can imagine every green-based creature deck wanting this. Trade in a land for a big fatty?

5. Rampant Murder :P

It's far-fetched, but people think these could be a sign we'll be returning to Theros sometime in the near future. We have Heroic (basically) and a reprint of the iconic Defiant Strike, which was very popular in the deck.

The problem is they also printed THIS card, which clearly has Batallion, so the Legionnaire might just be a random callback. *shrug*

Haha, that thing is pretty crazy! If you look in the background of Feather in my last post, I think you can see it in the background in the top-right corner. It's also depicted on Solar Blaze.

Damn, that seems really strong. I mean, it's basically always going to deal 5 damage, no matter what, right? There are a few planeswalker removal spells, but MOST of the time it's pretty solid. :)

The Gruul believe in a coming apocalypse, known as the End-Raze, in which Illharg the Raze-Boar will destroy Ravnica and return the plane to a more natural state. Welp, here it is!

This plus Slyvian Primodial will be fun. Let’s throw in Hellkite Charger and get extra attack phases too :P

It looks like the dead Gods of Amonkhet are, indeed, eternals now! I hope they get individual cards, that'd be pretty cool, but we have this for now:

Bontu and Kefnet are depicted in the art.

Welp, I guess all I had to do was wait a few minutes. Here's is Bontu, so I assume the rest of the Gods will be making an appearance as well.

So they killed off Niv Mizzet off camera? 

Kinda sucks that the prequel novels by Django Wrexler don’t come out until June. 

These are in addition to the Ravnica Novel coming out on April 23
