Throne of Eldraine Spoilers

13 posts in this topic

Another spoiler season is upon us!

You can find all the revealed cards so far here: https://scryfall.com/sets/eld?order=spoiled

First off, Adventure! So the way this works, is you can cast the card normally, or for the adventure cost. If you cast it for Adventure, the card goes into Exile after resolution and then you can cast the regular card from there. If you cast the regular card then you won't have access to the Adventure portion (unless it gets returned to your hand or whatever.)

Also...y'know that Planeswalker art that was spoiled? Apparently it was Rowan Kenrith this entire time!!

This honestly seems pretty weak. I'm thinking it might be a Planeswalker deck Planeswalker? Unless the -2 is more relevant than I think it is.

English translation:

+1: Up to one target creature gets +3/+0 and gains first strike until end of turn.

−2: Choose two target creatures. “Rowan” deals 1 damage to each of them. Those creatures can’t block this turn.

−9: Gain control of all creatures until end of turn. Untap them. They gain haste until end of turn.

Saw someone post this on Twitter. Mark of Eviction is insanely powerful with these Adventure creatures.

You bounce the creature, cast for Adventure, cast the creature, enchant with Mark of Eviction, next turn you bounce/adventure/cast creature/cast Mark of Eviction again. So long as the Adventure cost and creature cost are low, and if the effect is powerful enough, this is actually pretty good.

Examples below.
Order of Midnight: 2BBU to get any creature from your graveard every turn.
Smitten Swordmaster: 1BBU to deal X damage and gain X life, where X=number of knights. It says "each opponent" as well so this has to be decent in Commander, right?

This seems pretty crazy in midrange decks. It's Hero's Downfall with a 2/3 liflinker and it goes back into your deck (at the bottom) when it dies. Super yikes. It's slow, but seems like it could be the thing that wins a lot of games in midrangey, black-based control decks.

Big giant troll beater that can get back into the battlefield from the graveyard.

Important note: You don't need to have cast the troll to reanimate it, so if you can get it into your grraveyard and generate 3 food tokens quickly, this could result in a Troll King Reanimator type of thing. We'll have to see how easily it is to reach 3 Food tokens, and whether or not we get ways to get into the graveyard efficiently.

Yikes!


Some interesting cards that have been previewed recently. This thing seems a little clunky, but also super explosive, especially in 5-color decks.

Also, this!

Does anyone get the reference? I didn't catch it at first, but 'tis but a flesh wound!


Finally, this is looking like a sideboard card that's going to seriously shut down any spell-based combo decks like Storm, and Izzet Phoenix as well if it survives the Faithless Looting ban.
