Welcome to the eighth official day of spoiler season for the newest Magic: The Gathering set, Kaladesh. Wizards of the Coast has spoiled the majority of the set over the past week, as well as during their time at PAX West – if you’re just joining us, you can find more information about what’s been spoiled by Wizards of the Coast so far in our previous article.
We do have quite a few spoilers that slipped through last night, unfortunately. We’ll get you caught up on those before diving into the fresh spoilers of today.
First, we have four cards from Magic: The Gathering website Major Spoilers. Impeccable Timing is a White Instant with a casting cost of one generic and one White mana that deals three damage to target attacking or blocking Creature. Tezzeret’s Ambition is a Blue Sorcery that, for three generic and two Blue mana, lets you draw three cards. If you don’t control an Artifact, however, you have to discard a card.
Attune with Aether lets you search your library for a basic land card, reveal it, and put it into your hand. You shuffle your library after grabbing the land0 and you also get two energy counters. All this, for only one Green mana. The final card from Major Spoilers is Chandra’s Pyrohelix, which for one generic and one Red mana deals two damage divided among one or two target Creatures and/or players.
If you happen to own a Wizards of the Coast account, then you may have received these next three cards in your email. The first of these cards is the 6/6 Aethersquall Ancient, which has the Flying ability and a casting cost of five generic and two Blue mana. At the beginning of your upkeep, you get three energy counters; by paying eight energy counters, you can return all other Creatures to their owners’ hands. The downside to this is, you can only activate this ability any time you could cast a Sorcery. The next spoiler is the 4/3 Long-Finned Skywhale, which also has the Flying ability, and a casting cost of two generic and two Blue mana. It can only block other Creatures that have Flying. The final email spoiler is Skywhaler’s Shot, a White Instant with a casting cost of two generic and one White mana. It destroys target creature with a power of three or greater and lets you Scry 1.
The final spoiler that slipped through the cracks yesterday is the Metalwork Colossus, from the Magic: The Gathering Asian-Pacific Facebook page. This 10/10 Construct costs eleven generic mana to normally cast; however, it actually costs X less to cast, where X is the total converted mana cost among non-Creature Artifacts that you control. By sacrificing two Artifacts, you can return Metalwork Colossus from the graveyard to your hand.
Our first spoilers for the day are, of course, TechRaptors own. Feel free to check out our sister article for our four spoiler cards, courtesy of Wizards of the Coast.
Next up is a spoiler from German website GameZoom.net, Disappearing Trick (credit for translation goes to reddit user PraiseTheKappa). Disappearing Trick is an Instant spell with a casting cost of one generic and two Blue mana and an additional cost of returning a permanent you control to its owners’ hand; doing so allows you to target counter spell.
This Russian Magic: The Gathering page has a spoiler to share with us, which has been translated as “Creative Spark” (credit for translation goes to reddit user crokodildo); Creative Spark is a Sorcery spell with a casting cost of one Red mana and has you choose target creature and exile the top card of your library. You can choose to have Creative Spark deal damage to target creature equal to the converted mana cost of the card it exiled, or you can play that card until the end of turn.
Brazen Scourge is one of Geek and Sundry‘s spoilers for the day, a simple 3/3 Gremlin with the Haste ability and a casting cost of one generic and two Red mana. Their other spoiler card is a reprint of Demolish, a Sorcery spell with a casting cost of three generic and one Red mana that destroys target Artifact.
Today’s Magic Story from Wizards of the Coast reveals another important story character, this time showing off the 1/2 Legendary Human Artificer Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter. Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter has a casting cost of one Green mana and two different mana abilities; her first, which costs two generic and one Green mana, as well as tapping Oviya, creates a 1/1 Colorless Servo Artifact Creature Token. Her second ability, which also requires tapping Oviya but costs four generic and one Green mana, creates an X/X Colorless Construct Artifact Creature Token, where X is the number of creatures you control.
Our next spoiler for the day is from Wizards of the Coast’s article on the “Artifacts matter” theme of Kaladesh; Refurbish is a Sorcery which returns target Artifact card from your graveyard to the battlefield for three generic and one White mana.
Cathartic Reunion was hosted on Magic: The Gathering Writer and Designer Doug Beyer’s Tumblr page; this Sorcery costs one generic and one Red mana, and also requires you to discard two cards. In return, you get to draw three cards.
Website io9 has eight spoilers to share with the community today, the first of which is Aviary Mechanic, a 2/2 Dwarf Artificer with a casting cost of one generic and one White mana. When it enters the battlefield, you may return another permanent you control to its owner’s hand. Ambitious Aetherborn is a 4/3 Aetherborn Artificer with the Fabricate 1 ability, and a casting cost of four generic and one Black mana.
Up next from io9 we have Highspire Artisan, a 0/3 Elf Artificer with the Reach and Fabricate 1 ability and a casting cost of two generic and one Green mana. We also have Nimble Innovator, which has a casting cost of three generic and one Blue mana and allows you to draw a card when it enters the battlefield.
Reckless Fireweaver is a 1/3 Human Artificer with a casting cost of one generic and one Red mana; it deals one damage to each opponent whenever an Artifact enters the battlefield under your control. Another Human Artificer, the 3/3 Restoration Gearsmith, returns target Artifact of Creature from your graveyard to your hand when it enters the battlefield and has a casting cost of two generic, one White, and one Black mana.
Lastly, we have the Weaponcraft Enthusiast and the Weldfast Wingsmith; the Weaponcraft Enthusiast is a 0/1 Aetherborn Artificer with the Fabricate 2 ability and a casting cost of two generic and one Black mana. Weldfast Wingsmith is a 3/3 Human Artificer with a casting cost of three generic and one Blue mana and gains Flying until the end of turn whenever an Artifact enters the battlefield under your control.
Our last spoiler for the day is also the second “Story Spotlight” card; Captured by the Consulate is an Enchantment with a casting cost of three generic and one White mana that Enchants target creature you don’t control. That creature can’t attack, and whenever an opponent casts a spell that targets a single Creature, you can change the spell to target the Enchanted creature if able.
