Magic Gives Us Our First Glimpse Into Gatecrash

December 24, 2012 by dracs

If you are like me then you cannot wait for the release of the next Magic the Gathering set, Gatecrash, to be released next year. Well as a seasonal treat Wizards have provided us with our first glimpse at one of the cards which will be appearing.

Fathom Mage

The Fathom Mage is a rare card for the Simic Combine guild and shows us the special rule which this green/blue faction will be using: Evolve.

Providing weaker creatures with a +1/+1 counter each time a stronger creature enters the field, this will allow players to get out some relatively cheap, but weak creatures onto the field early on. These will then grow as more expensive creatures are played, meaning you will have a continually growing line of attack or defence.

To celebrate the season Wizards of the Coast have also released two special seasonal cards. Have you been Naughty or Nice?

Magic Naughty and Nice

Is anyone else getting excited about Gatecrash?
