Gatecrash Spoilers: January 16th, 2013

Hello folks and welcome back to another edition of the gatecrash spoilers for this week, so without further ado let's see what we missed yesterday to start, then after let's get to today's previews.

Glaring Spotlight is one of those anti-hexproof cards for magic, here's looking at you Geist of Saint Traft which doesn't surprise me for this set at all, it's about time we had a anti-hexproof card here.

It seems like we know what that champion's playmat art is going to be now, introducing the wrath for this set, Merciless Eviction, which costs 4, white, black and is a sorcery that you choose one, exile all artifacts, exile all creatures or exile all enchantments, or exile all planeswalkers. I'm not expecting to see this played at all to be brutally honest.

A weaker Vesuva to start the day, known as Thespian's Stage which is a land that's a rare and it adds 1 to the pool, but for 2 and you tap it, you can change into whatever land you want and it gains that land's ability, talk about potential for both standard and EDH.

Slaughterhorn is another one of those seriously good limited cards here, it's a 3/2 for 2 and a green, it is a common so expect to see this every draft  and it of course has the Gruul mechanic of "Channel" which is basically now being called Bloodrush, Gruul players in general are going to appreciate this one since it's so decent for limited and is perhaps one of the most solid commons to draft for a body.

And that's it, tommorow I'll talk about the missing charms as well as the other previews, so until then this is vergil signing off.
