Needle Spires - Card set : “Oath of the Gatewatch”

It's a bad day when the canyon in front of you wakes up and stabs you with pointy rocks before you can react. It's a worse day when it stabs you again right after that.

Silas Renn, Seeker Adept

Silas may look extremely smug here, but that's only because he definitely is. He did beat up Tezzeret, after all.

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder

While he is well known for punching countless Eldrazi in their faces, Bruse is best known for having the finest mustache in the Multiverse.

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder

Only an Ogre would be crazy enough to use his magic to try to harness the Maelstrom, but I guess it worked. Thankfully, most Ogres don't aspire to be Wizards.

October 27, 2016

Saskia the Unyielding

Saskia may be kind of a bully, but she's great at making friends with the players she isn't targeting.

October 26, 2016

Breya, Etherium Shaper

Breya is all about options. As long as you keep the artifacts coming, she'll keep giving you answers for whatever your opponent throws at you.

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice

Behold the first of your upcoming four-color commanders! While she may be the most straight-forward of the new commanders, she is also a terrifying force to be reckoned with.

Inventors’ Fair

Kaladesh has a new designation on certain cards—Story Spotlight! These cards are numbered and provide a handy way to follow the story via the cards.

September 16, 2016

Fumigate

My, what a beautiful machine they're using to...crop-dust gremlins...to death? Yikes. With five mana as the new standard for board wipes, the (potentially massive) life gain added to this one makes it a sure contender.

September 15, 2016

Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter

Even by Kaladeshi standards, Oviya Pashiri is a genius among inventors. Her life-generating power is well showcased here; with enough time and mana, she alone can build an ever-growing army.

September 14, 2016

Dovin Baan

A character as enigmatic and coolly inscrutable as Dovin Baan deserves a card to match. Suppressing the opponent while bolstering your resources certainly fits the bill, and this planeswalker is going to make control decks very happy.

September 13, 2016

Cataclysmic Gearhulk

Whoa, these robots are not messing around! Since not a lot of people have been saying, "I'm so glad Tragic Arrogance doesn't come with a bonus 4/5 creature with vigilance," this Construct is going to be very popular.

September 12, 2016

Smuggler's Copter

With a measly crew cost of one, this handy little Copter practically drives itself! An adorable, easy-to-operate helicopter-bug that hits for 3 in the air and lets you loot for free every turn? Yes, please!

September 9, 2016

Lost Legacy

Kiran Nalaar will never be forgotten! Ahem. Infinite Obliteration is a great card, and the added ability to obliterate an instant, sorcery, enchantment, or planeswalker more than makes up for the minor card-replacement downside.

September 8, 2016

Aetherflux Reservoir

Apparently even mundane municipal utilities are exquisitely beautiful on Kaladesh! Neat. Also, anyone who uses the Reservoir's second ability to kill off a creature should win a million dollars for wholeheartedly embracing absurdity.

September 7, 2016

Nissa, Vital Force

A world of metal and technology isn't the kind of place where Nissa feels at home, but true to form, she sees the living magic of Kaladesh under all the man-made artifice. Elementals made of smashed machinery? Sure!

September 6, 2016

Chandra, Torch of Defiance

Kaladesh is where Chandra's spark ignited, and now that she's returned, she'll have to face the demons of her past. But just look at her face (and all four of her sweet abilities)—she's ready for anything.

September 5, 2016

Skyship Stalker

What, didn't you know that a skyship's natural predator is a ridiculously cool tiger-striped Dragon that feeds on red mana and breathes fire? Well, now you do. The awesomeness of Kaladesh is not confined solely to artifacts!

Pia and Kiran Nalaar - Card set : “Magic Origins”

Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh - Card set : “Magic Origins”

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds

Selvala's time in Paliano has been...a mixed bag, you could say. After mercy-killing Brago (his first death), she was jailed as a murderer, but escaped and fled to the wilds. Now, with everything in flux, she's back—and she brought her animal friends.

August 25, 2016

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser

Grenzo was never the most scrupulous dungeon keeper, but now he's gone from "kind of lax at his job" to "unemployed and full-on worshiping chaos." Of course, like any good Goblin, he makes the chaos work to his advantage in a big way.

August 24, 2016

Leovold, Emissary of Trest

Look at this fancy and unthreatening Elf! He wants to be everyone's friend! Who could fear him? (Pro tip: we all should, because the deadliest weapon in Paliano is information, and he holds more of it than just about anyone.)

August 22, 2016

Queen Marchesa

Whatever your feelings on how she got there, Marchesa looks right at home on the throne. And true to form, as long as she's around, she'll use her considerable resources to make sure no one takes the monarchy from you.

August 19, 2016

Selvala, Explorer Returned - Card set : “Conspiracy”

Selvala has always stood apart from the crowded streets and vicious intrigue that define Paliano, preferring the company of plants and animals. When we last saw her, she was still attempting diplomacy, but that...may have changed.

Grenzo, Dungeon Warden - Card set : “Conspiracy”

For years, Grenzo happily ran Paliano's dungeons, ruling over his underground domain with a perfect mix of duty and corruption. Now relieved of his post by Marchesa, he seems to have dropped all pretense of order in favor of smashing.

Edric, Spymaster of Trest - Card set : “Magic: The Gathering-Commander”

Brago, King Eternal - Card set : “Conspiracy”

Marchesa, the Black Rose - Card set : “Conspiracy”

Foul Emissary - Card set : “Eldritch Moon”

July 26, 2016

Lunar Force - Card set : “Eldritch Moon”

Lone Rider - Card set : “Eldritch Moon”

Otherworldly Outburst

"An outburst at the dinner table" has taken on a new meaning these days. This card seems like a perfect way to turn a losing combat step into a profitable trade all at once—and at the Prerelease, nobody will expect it yet!

July 13, 2016

Prying Questions

We've seen some weird mutations lately, but half a face turning into a horrid slimy elephant trunk with a greedy little lamprey mouth is new. If it asks whether you're doing a Prerelease this weekend, just say yes.

Mercurial Geists

Could it be? Are these the ghosts of a pair of Wee Dragonauts? We may never know, but at the very least, they are kindred Spirits (ha!), fueled by spells and ready to smash varying amounts of face.

Grapple with the Past

Okay, it's great for delirium and getting back your dead best friend. But more importantly: that art. Maybe the tentacle monster was once a small child. Maybe Emrakul helped her find her teddy bear when nobody else could.

Compelling Deterrence - Card set : “Duel Decks: Blessed vs. Cursed”
