    The promo cards for each guild have already been spoiled. They were the first 5 cards WOTC spoiled to us. They show it to you themselves on the website at the following link -

    *buzzer sound* wrong. Dimir's promo is a creature cuz it has a P/T in the corner, and is not Whispering Madness. Boros' promo is most likely this one because the art on the picture looks like a giant flaming thing, not an angel.

    Now, if we could just get that goblin walker. Preferably before the part in the storyline where he planeswalked right into Progenitus.

    No Boros and Dimir ones are different. The spoiled Dimir card isn't a creature for example.

    Well im glad you guys debunked the link so i didnt have to go to it! But on the card, as everyone has pointed out, good in limited. Idk cube worthy?
  • #30
    Well, let's see:
    Is it a creature and not a land named "Grove of the Guardian"? Positive.
    It costs a ton of mana? Yep.
    The ton of mana spent to cast the creature won't pay off? Sure.
    Would you play it in limited? Totally.
    And completely ignore it in constructed? Of course.

    Yes, I think it is our promo rare.

    (Give your LGS judge a hug. He deserves it.)

    Nothing. All I want is Heroes vs. Monsters spoilers.

    I really love Ravnica and it's my favorite set of all time, and that may be the reason I want the majority of it's cards to be really really good, but I'm a tad disappointed. I mean, there's still 209 cards to spoil, but I want some juice Wizards. New Ravnica has a lot to live up to, and it can't do it like this.

    My anticipation of a Warp World reprint is growing! But the art looks like it belongs to SolForge rather than MtG.

    Idk, I think some boros decks might want him at the top of the curve to push through the last few points. Then again, a searing spear could do that for 1/3 of the mana. So, /shrug? The guy HAS potential, not to mention he is almost impossible to punch through or trade with because of Fire Breathing/Toughness Pump.

    Problem is that decks playing swarms and hence wanting its ability generally don't want 6 drops. Potential exemption being a control deck running tokens to stall, but even there it seems too shakey, so, unless someone finds a combo to break it I'd say limited fodder only.
    I'm a control player, because I like to reserve the right to say no.

    I play WR Humans brews since it became a thing in ISD Block Constructed, and believe me, you want your deck to end on CMC=5
    (EDIT: 5th mana sounded really bad, sorry). And, in addition to that, I hate when you get those Zealous Conscripts stuck on your hand when you use 24 lands.

    Of course, what I posted was meant to be a joke or something, but it makes sense after all. I don't see this being played in WR, because otherwise we could explore the human tribe more and Kessig Malcontents could be a playable dude without the use of Cloudshift (thank you Ari Lax, for your thoughts on that). Some sort of Naya could use it, but, thinking well, I'd stick with Aurelia.

    This card looks a lot like the text box for the Boros promo - the image has a pretty long first ability and two short (in terms of text) abilities. I'm confident to say this is the Boros promo.

    for a rare this is just awful, I cant describe it in other words. No-brain pick in limited but useless everywhere else.

    It's only good when you already have a ton of creatures. And if you already have a ton of creatures, wouldn't you rather have Aurelia? And if you don't have any creatures, wouldn't you rather have Aurelia?

    It's not terrible but still not good, should be a great limited bomb though which is what the prerelease cards are.

    Not always. She can come down and do nothing, he can come down and have immediate impact. Even without getting more than 2 or 3 points of damage off his ability it is a solid creature. He's not amazing, but he is certainly not bad.

    Too bad they still want to employ it for the Theme Decks aswell. I don't know the numbers, but as far as I've heard, the AVR material sold way more than the RTR one, because, you know, one has Zealous Conscripts and Wolfir Silverheart, things playable in Standard and, further more, Zealous saw play in other competitive ventures aswell. But I don't know, I like theme decks but I certainly don't like this kind of card for the foil rare material.

    That was one of my favorite spoiled art too. I really love the idea of the new Flame-Kin cards, and this art just blew my mind. Such a damn waste. Frown

    Not every card can be playable in Type 2 but Timmy's like myself will try our damnedest.

    looks great, would love to slap rancor on it. maybe use mana dorks to ramp to thragtusk and this guy for a naya build.
    Who cares if its good in EDH or Limited? 95% of cards are.

    I like it. It's a fixed Inferno Titan. I can see myself playing a Naya Midrange for a little while with this as a curve-topper.

    It's fine in limited, got an ok body when pumped up, and the removal is pretty good most of the time, probably 3+ damage by turn 6.

    seems lacking though if it's our prerelease card when comparing RTR cards.

    it's easily beat out by hypersonic dragon, grove of the guardian, and the azorious dude. about on par with carnival hellsteed.

    Carnival Hellsteed was the best Promo alongside Hypersonic Dragon....

    Seems very good in limited. I might go boros for the prerelease, though I will probably pick grull (if RTR is any indication of what the prerelease is going to be like,the fastest guild is best.)

    Battalion as an ability seems bad in a format with instant wraths. This guy is pretty mediocre. He needs to have Haste at least.

    I was a big proponent of Firemane Avenger, but this looks a bit weak for a 6 drop, especially compared to Aurelia.

    That being said, it basically has Kessig Malcontents but for all creatures instead of just humans. I could see this having play as a top out for RW human token decks which run a 4-count of Gather the Townsfolk and with lingering souls.
