Hello everyone and of course welcome back to another edition of the emporium, it's time to preview more Gatecrash cards for the upcoming set, this is day 4 for week 3 and let's get straight into this one.
Duskmantle Seer, oh boy this kind of is a little nuts, it's 4 mana for a 4/4 flyer that has the ability, At the beginning of your upkeep, each player reveals the top card of his/her library, loses life equal to that card's converted mana cost, then puts it into his/her hand. So Dark Confidant with Baneful Omen mixed together to make this puppy, plus it's a 4/4 flyer, also this is the 2nd dimir mythic for the set.
Spark Trooper, whoa this thing is kinda of sick, 1, red, red, white for a 6/1 with trample, lifelink and haste, so Ball Lightning with a seriously good power level, about time wizards, it's second ability is the same as the original basically, At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice Spark Trooper, this is only a rare too, so this could see some serious play here.
Whoa, where'd this one come from, a 7 drop, 6/6 named Gruul Ragebeast, whenever it or another creature enters the battlefield under your control, that creature fights target creature an opponent controls, removal on a stick here, but it costs a whopping 7 mana for this guy, this may not see play outside of Commander, but whoa this guy is good in creature based decks in limited.
Well these cards just keep getting more ridiculous, introducing Unexpected Results, previewed by Forbes Magazine, yes forbes, it's a 4 drop sorcery that's at the rare level, You shuffle your library, then reveal the top card, if it's a non land card, you can cast it without paying it's mana cost, If it's a land though, put it on the battlefield and return Unexpected Results to it's owner's hand. To be honest the cost is decent, it will probably see some play and is basically just another way of getting ahead, since there's always a decent chance you will land on a land.
Anyways that's it for today, stay tuned tommorow for more gatecrash previews, till then this is vergil signing off.
