Fiend of the ShadowsDark Ascension rare. From the Dark Ascension FAQ: Playing a card exiled with Fiend of the Shadows follows all the normal rules for playing that card. You must pay its costs, and you must follow all timing restrictions, for example. You may only play the card, meaning play it as a land or cast it as a spell. It's not in your hand. You can't discard it, activate its cycling abilities, and so on.

262860
Drogskol ReaverDark Ascension mythic rare. From the Dark Ascension FAQ: The ability triggers just once for each life-gaining event, no matter how much life was gained. If a creature with lifelink you control deals damage to multiple creatures, players, and/or planeswalkers at the same time, the ability will trigger just once. The damage dealt by that creature is a single life-gaining event.

Elvish House Party
Elvish House PartyUnhinged uncommon. Remember, even when you're playing with Un- cards, it's unsporting to wait several hours before you attack.

175134
Steward of ValeronShards of Alara common. The Steward of Valeron wears armor that is characteristic of Bant knights. It's mostly defensive, hampering the wearers offensive attacks. It's very showy, designed to reflect the sun in its metallic curves to signal honor to the angels above. And it doesn't protect the back, because on Bant, all attacks come head-on.

Phyrexian Dreadnought
Phyrexian DreadnoughtMirage rare. When Mirage came out, Phyrexian Dreadnought was the biggest creature that Magic had ever seen. Since then, the 12/12 has been surpassed, bit by bit. Not counting silver-bordered creatures, the current champ is the 15/15 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn.

It That Betrays
It That BetraysRise of the Eldrazi rare. Doesn't it seem like a bad idea to have something called "It That Betrays" on your team? That's just asking for some kind of, well, betrayal.

26733
DodecapodApocalypse uncommon. In the days of yore (around 2001), Dodecapod was a great card to sideboard in against discard decks. It wasn't clever, but it got the job done.
