Greetings, TechRaptor readers and fellow Magic: The Gathering fans! Welcome to the ninth day of our ongoing Eldritch Moon spoiler coverage. If you’re just joining us, make sure to check out our thread from yesterday, which contains links to all the spoilers from Wizards of the Coast for Eldritch Moon from the past two weeks of coverage.
Our first two spoilers for the day are technically spoilers from last night. The first of these is from Senior Magic: The Gathering Game Designer Ken Nagle; his spoiler is Wolfkin Bond, a green Aura. For four generic and one green mana, it enchants target creature and gives it a +2/+2 buff. When Wolfkin Bond enters the battlefield, its controller puts a 2/2 green Wolf creature token onto the battlefield.
The second spoiler from last night is from the Japanese Magic: The Gathering website mtg-jp.com. Their spoiler is Splendid Reclamation (credit for translation goes to mtgsalvation user NGW); for three generic and one green mana, players can cast this Sorcery spell to return all land cards in their graveyard to the battlefield tapped.
The first spoiler from today is from hobbyconsolas.com. Their spoiler is Sigarda’s Blessing, a white Enchantment (credit for translation goes to mtgsalvation user calculon). The player that controls this Enchantment may cast Aura and Equipment spells as though they had the Flash, and may attach Equipment spells to target creature they own when an Equipment spells enters the battlefield under their control.
Next is this Simplified Chinese card, for which the only source that could be found was this imgur album. Credit for card translation goes to mtgsalvation user Raptorchan; the card is Collective Effort, a white Sorcery that can be cast for one generic and two white mana. It features the Escalate mechanic and has the following modes: destroy target creature with power four or greater; destroy target enchantment; put a +1/+1 counter on each creature target player controls. The cost to use multiple modes beyond the first is to tap an untapped creature the caster controls.
Gathering Magic has another spoiler to share with the community; their spoiler is Olivia’s Dragoon, a 2/2 Vampire Berserker that can be cast for one generic and one black mana. By discarding a card from their hand, players can give it Flying until the end of the turn.
Italian website MagicFriends.net posted their spoiler, Mausoleum Wanderer, to their twitter account today (credit for translation goes to reddit user Mortimer_Gray). Mausoleum Wanderer is a blue Spirit creature with Flying that gets +1/+1 whenever another Spirit creature enters the battlefield under the owner’s control. By sacrificing Mausoleum Wanderer, its controller can counter target Instant or Sorcery spell unless the opponent plays X, where X is Mausoleum Wanderer’s power.
Our next spoiler is from the Magic: The Gathering twitter account; their card is Crop Sigil, a green Enchantment that allows the controller to put the top card of their library into their graveyard at the beginning of their upkeep step. If the conditions for the Delirium mechanic are met, the controller can pay two generic and one green mana to sacrifice Crop Sigil and return up to one target creature card and one target land from their graveyard to their hand.
The featured card article on the Wizards of the Coast homepage spoils a very interesting card, Imprisoned in the Moon. For two generic and one blue mana, players can cast this Aura on target creature, land, or Planeswalker. The card Enchanted in this way becomes a colorless land that can only be tapped as a source for one colorless mana – it loses all other card types and abilities. Players have seen similar effects in the past with cards like Spreading Seas, but this is the first time such a card has targeted a Planeswalker.
The final spoilers for the day are from Wizards of the Coast’s article on tribal cards; the first card spoiled in this article is Heron’s Grace Champion, a 3/3 Human Knight with Flash and Lifelink (damage dealt by this card causes its controller to gain that much life). For two generic, one white and one green mana, players can cast this card and give other Humans they control Lifelink and a +1/+1 buff until the end of the turn.
The second card from this article is Courageous Outrider, a 3/4 Human Scout that can be cast for three generic and one white mana. When it enters the battlefield, the controller can look at the top four cards of their library and reveal a Human card from them. That card is put into the players hand and the other cards go onto the bottom of the library in any order.
