    Doubt it. But the number in the image seems corret (196/280). Not hard to fake that, but if forged, at least they put some thought to make it more believable.

    From the article that Trifas linked, here are the potential spots for the name yet unrevealed cards based on draft archetypes and names:
    Warteye Witch: 115 or 151-154 (some goblin)
    Smoke Shroud: 110, 147, or 214 (214 is most likely given below) (Gruul uncommon?)
    Throatseeker: 110 (sounds like a vampire)
    Ninja of the New Moon: 59-62, possibly 99
    Lancer Sliver: 17, 18, 133 (white First Strike sliver?)
    First Sliver's Chosen: 8-9 (9 likely, given below, could be our Hexproof sliver???)
    Soulherder: 30
    Face of Divinity: 8
    Spinehorn Minotaur: 147
    Excavating Anurid: 163


    Smoke Shroud... by its name, I would not be impressed if this Is a new Sterling Grove kind of card hahaha

    Now this is something that would make me happy!

    It should be a Common "all purpose" land

    Today's article brings some unrevealed names. There are at least 2 slivers we haven't seen.

    Also, Evasive Action is crunched out =(

    Once it's uncommon, I'm hoping Sterling Grove will be reprinted Smile


    Oh, that'd be nice. The lack of (non-aura) enchantment tutors in Modern really perturbs me. Blue keeps on getting its artifact tutors (the * mage series, Whir of Invention), all enchantments get are Idyllic Tutor, which isn't even that good, nobody plays it competitively, and it STILL has climbed over a $30 price tag because it didn't get reprinted in ANY of the Masters sets.


    Idyllic Tutor is damn too slow for modern. I really do not understand why it’s so expensive. We really need Sterling Grove or Enlightened Tutor... both are still possible.

    I'd love Sterling Grove in this set, but while it hasn't been crunched out, I'm not very optimist considering the color pair balancing. In fact, with the new Heliod Land they just printed, it may be a bit too strong for Modern. But I'll keep dreaming with it!


    I understand your point, but don't think Sterling Grove is too strong for Modern. The card is balanced because it makes you decide between "protection" to your enchantments or a way to tutor your enchantment (that won't have shroud). We know that in Modern time is everything. To make a combo where you keep bringing back Sterling Grove with the new land and tutoring other enchantments you would probably have to make an entire deck to support it. Many other powerful combos run faster and are totally viable in Modern (Academy ruins and the cards that tutor artifacts are there to prove it)... I really can't see why the new land and Sterling Grove can't coexist.

    About the color balance of the set... I agree with you. However, we, as bogle players, have to keep dreaming that something useful for us will show up among the cards not spoiled yet.

    Yeah, I agree it's not broken. I believe it is somewhere between "Strong, but fair for the format" and "A bit stronger than we would like, so we won't take the risk". While I don't think it is possible in this set, I still hope we'll see it in Modern Horizons 2 or something.

    I have this feeling they are always more cautious with enchantments than with artifacts. Back to Nature right after Theros was a bit letdown.

    But until every white and green card is revealed, I still hope for some Bogles love. A single, common or uncommon, low cost Aura is enough for us!

    Also, I'd like to see Evasive Action or a Domain card in the set. Need to upgrade the Kitchen Table decks too

    Slot 135 - is there a possibility for a Lightning Rift functional reprint ?? Would love it, and would be more playable than the Astral, if we get the Onslaught lands back

    They kind of made one in Amonkhet: Faith of the Devoted

    Monocolor imbalance in mythic usually matches multicolor mythics containing the missing color (not always the case).

    Ultimate Masters had 20 Mythics, but IIRC it didn't have basic lands (hence the extra 5 slots).

    Saw the picture and it is fake. The collector's number doesn't fit the crunch

    With the second sword revealed, we are either getting more than 15 mythics or a color won't get 2. I believe we won't see a second monored mythic.

    We in a way have a pursudo mythic cycle

    A mono color legendary (unless have abilities otherwise)

    So far it’s serra for white and urza for blue

    I think we will end up with legends of the other ones

    B will definatly be either gix or yawgmoth (maybe both since neither of the black mythics are shown yet)

    R should be Jared Carthalion based on some cards

    G the best I can think of for now is gaea if you have any other ideas let me know?

    Green already got its two mythics. It has a rare legend, Ayula!
    I expect every color to get a legendary creature, but rarity is not given.

    They've said there would be other "cycle extensions" besides the Canopy lands. While it may not be the swords, we haven't seen any hint of other cycle extensios so far.


    But I agree they are either rare or not in the set. 2 mythics per color + 5 colorless/multicolor mythic seems to be the case here.
