Gatecrash Spoilers: January 18th, 2013

Hello everyone and welcome to what may be the final day of Gatecrash spoilers before the mass reveal on monday, today it's the final mythic of the set, final guild mage and a few other little cards, so without further ado let's begin.

Master Biomancer is the final mythic rare yet to be revealed for the set, it's 4 mana for a 2/4 that has the static ability "Each other creature you control enters the battlefield with a number of additional +1/+1 counters on it equal to Master Biomancer's power and is a mutant in addition to it's other types. This essentially creates a massive army in the long run and is one of those cards which i'm expecting to end up in the 2 dollar mythic category.

After 4 and a half months, we learn what this thing does, introducing Vizkopa Guildmage, whom costs white and black, is a uncommon 2/2 that has 2 different abilities, 1 is pay 1, white, black, target creature gains lifelink until end of turn, then the second one is pay 1, white, black, whenever you gain life this turn, each opponent loses that much life, so Sanguine Bond anyone on a body?

Truefire Paladin is another one of those boros cards which are unique, since it costs white and red to cast is a 2/2 and is a human knight at the uncommon rarity with vigilance. It also has 2 different abilites much the same as the guildmage i just talked about, pay red and white, it gains +2/+0 until end of turn and pay red and white, it gains first strike until end of turn, I gotta admit, this is one of those mana sinks in limited which i'm a big fan of.

Terrible rare is terrible, introducing Simic Manipulator which starts out as a 0/1 with evolve, the simic mechanic for the set, is a rare and costs 1, Blue, Blue, does anyone remember last year's Beguiler of Wills, well this was printed in a worse format, it says Tap, remove one or more +1/+1 counters from Simic Manipulator, gain control of target creature with power less then or equal to the number of counters removed this way. To be brutally honest, wizards just prints jank cards like this to piss me off, since i'm a natural blue player for life, anyways that's all the previews for today, the rest are pretty much well known as of now, until next time this is vergil signing off.
