[ALR] Prerelease card promo name

  • #1
    Hey all...

    Just got this in the mail from WoTC. Wasn't sure if anyone posted anything about this yet.

    Prerelease Support Kit Materials
    36 Dragon Broodmother promo cards
    ...among other things


    EDIT:
    I have some other info, nothing major, but take from it what you will.

    I worked at one of the big prereleases for Conflux. At said event, we had an artist doing signings. During my lunch break, which was roughly the same time as the artist's, I chatted a bit with him as we are both from the same area.

    I asked him if he could give me any info on upcoming pieces for Alara Reborn. He told me that he did a few pieces for the new set, some of which he was really proud of. No big news there. What interested me was that he mentioned that he did one of the promo cards, but he didn't know if it was the prerelease or the release card.

    He described the card as a "Mounted 'Bant' Knight wearing some kind of armor/cape that had all 5 colors in it". I'm guessing it's the release card as we now know the prerelease card is a dragon. He went on to say that a lot of the pieces had this theme (all colors).

    I know this isn't groundbreaking news, but thought it was interesting enough for people to hear.

    Wow... if this is true it seems like a token generator dragon... and with Hellkite Overlord in the set it seems that Dragons are the new Slivers hahaha.

    should be interesting, I'm sure it won't be insanely good, but I guess it's good enough to make a prerelease card for...
    I've made over 300 bucks off of this site since 10/29/09...Why haven't you?!?!?!

    I've also made over 95 bucks on this site since I started on 11/24/09. Give it a try!

    Something like a SGC on steroids would be pretty cool. Bogardan Hellkite, but with three 2/2 flying hatchlings, etc.

    It sounds cool at least. Grin

    Anywho, good catch. Smile

    Broodmother eh?


    Sounds like it makes some kind of tokens. Hopefully it won't be jank and the artwork is good.

    Voracious was a card I doubted too, until my friend made a goblin deck that uses them. After he plays Mog War-Marshal and Dragon Fodder, and plays that you take 8 damage and has an 8/8 flier. Although the Broodmother probably pumps out 4/4 flying dragon tokens.

    Sounds interesting, but since you did not mention the "other things" I am very curious to what they could be.

    Can you give all of the details given?

    I welcome the broodmother. I only wish she would not be mythic rare. If she's a good dragon, the price will drive me nuts.

    I definitely second this motion. On the other note... Broodmother huh? Again I think I will have to agree, its definitely makes something. Hope its good like the last ones were.
    Got married and then I realized there are things better than Magic.

    Amazing!!! This eBayer is an Ultra Rare Foil of an eBayer!!! Hot like cakes!! Seller: appalachianwarrior (#350048736265)

    I really hope the dragon is better than the Conflux launch party promo. I was so disappointed with that card.

    Broodmother? sound interesting
    at first I thought about 4/4 dragon, but Masamune made a very good suggestion
    i think there are two possibility :

    -uber cool masamune siege gang : 5/5 dragon with three hatchling 2/2( all with flying obviously) with cmc 8 problably, or maybe seven

    -mike(micoloth) hellkite:4/4 devour 1-2, for each creature it devours put a 2/2 hatchling in play, cmc 6/7

    the first is great in standard, but the second is so good in draft

    most problably they are both wrong, but both of them make me drool

    Hmmmm, sounds like its the 'better half' of Broodmate Dragon. Would make sense from a flavor perspective....

    Should be fun!

    These are some pretty nice news!! A 2nd prerelease dragon in a row!!
    It'll be a mythic as Wizards stated that their promo card given at prerelease and release events will always be starting from Shards.
    Should definitely create dragon tokens.
    Devour is a nice idea but a bit Mycoloth-redundant perhaps.
    Siege gang Commander -like would be soooo coool!! Grin

    (ok now that I'll have to get one as I won't be able to do the prerelease...) Mad
  • #19
    i suppose that this mother will come into play with 3 Whelp tokens 2\2 ...since 2 are not enough Grin

    ediT: well someone had my same idea... but then i realized that having dragons more than 1 baby isn't in fantasy's flavour.

    I was thinken about something like Sliver Queen, Brood Mother, the vanguard.
    He makes tokens so i think it must be definitely something whit tokens.
    Maybe the dragon has some kind of Dragon Roost ability.
    Death, ambition, and darkness are the stock and trade of black mages.
  • #21
    I'm going to guess that it can make a 4/4 red dragon token w/ flying each turn. It's going to be a mythic, so something like a dragon version of Godsire would make sense.
  • #22
    Well, Obelisk of Alara wasn't mythic, so this doesn't need to be mythic.

    This shouldn't be compared to Obelisk of Alara. That was the release card, and was just a normal rare. Malfegor was the prerelease card, like this new dragon, and was mythic. Ajani Vengeantwas mythic too.

    Dragon Broodmother will almost certainly be mythic.
  • #25
    Hmmmm...citp, put a copy of target non-token dragon you control into play?
    Help me complete my work for all of Magic-kind!

    The name sounds cool. Hopefully its not jank or too strong for a prerelease card.
