Greetings, TechRaptor readers and fellow Magic: The Gathering fans! Today Conspiracy: Take the Crown hits the streets and your local game store. If you missed our coverage, you can check it out here - there are some absolutely amazing cards in this set, and we're looking forward to taking part in some fun draft events.
Today an interesting card has been potentially leaked from the next-most Magic: The Gathering set, Kaladesh. Spoiler season for Kaladesh doesn't begin until September, but previous sets (such as the recent Eldritch Moon) have had cards leaked ahead of time despite Wizards of the Coast taking a hard-line stance on punishing leakers as of the Oath of the Gatewatch set.
The card in question is a Blue Sorcery called "Saheeli's Artistry", and was posted to the reddit Magic: The Gathering sub-forum. Saheel's Artistry has two modes to chose from, both of which feature the new "create a token" phrasing that will go into effect beginning with Kaladesh. One mode creates a token that's a copy of target artifact, while the other mode creates a token that's a copy of target creature, which gains artifact in addition to its other creature types.
At the time of writing this article, this cards legitimacy is unconfirmed - it could be a real card, or it could be a clever alteration. The author of the reddit post, /u/dafunkee, claims to have received the card from a member of his local Facebook group.
We'll update this article when any further information regarding this card comes to light, as well as any official responses from Wizards of the Coast.
Stay tuned to TechRaptor for further news on the upcoming Kaladesh set, and all things Magic: The Gathering.
