    I will add what I think we already know from the leaks, the list of leak cards can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZR6gsXh_Fy-epAhT3FpZJQkuO_tep8rTpVcB4JSHO2o/mobilebasic#

    • A card that lists fourteen creature abilities
    • A card that returns three different cards types from the graveyard to the battlefield (and not a combination we’ve ever done before)
    • A card that basically turns one evergreen keyword action into another evergreen keyword action - Could be the blue Sphinx from the first leaks
    Eligeth, Augur of the Crossroads 4UU
    Legendary Creature — Sphinx (U)
    Flying
    If you would look at a number of cards by scrying, instead draw that many cards.
    Partner
    5/6
    • A card that temporarily steals a creature from a new place - Zara, Renegade Recruiter?
    Zara, Renegade Recruiter 3UR
    Legendary Creature — Human Pirate (R)
    Flying
    Whenever ~ attacks, look at defending player's hand. You may put a creature card from among those cards onto the battlefield under your control tapped and attacking that player or a planeswalker they control. Return that creature to its owner's hand at the beginning of the next end step.
    4/3
    • A card that’s stronger the fewer colors in your commander’s color identity - Could be the land from the leaks
    War Cabinet
    Land (R)
    T: Add C.
    3, T, Pay life equal to the number of colors in your commander's color identity: Draw a card.
    • Multiple legendary creatures of siblings of previous legendary creatures
    • A card that grants certain kinds of protection based on what permanents you have on the battlefield - Could be Rebbec
    Rebbec, Architect of Ascent 3W
    Legendary Creature — Human Artificer (U)
    Artifacts you control have protection from each converted mana cost among artifacts you control.
    Partner
    3/4
    • A card that references both beginning phase and postcombat main phase
    • A legendary creature that shares four of the five words in its name with three other legendary creatures - Kodama of the East Tree?
    Kodama of the East Tree 4GG
    Legendary Creature — Spirit (R)
    Reach
    Whenever another permanent enters the battlefield under your control, if it wasn't put onto the battlefield with this ability, you may put a permanent card with equal or lesser converted mana cost from your hand onto the battlefield.
    Partner
    6/6
    • A creature with four words of rules text and fifty-two words of reminder text

    Next, here is some rules text can you expect to see on cards in Commander Legends:

    • “damage doesn’t cause you to lose life”
    • “any number of Auras and Equipment you control”
    • “except for commanders” - Most likely the white removal from the leaks
    Clear the Ranks 3WW
    Sorcery (R)
    Destroy all creatures and planeswalkers except for commanders.
    • “where X is the number of attacking creatures with flying” - Siani, Eye of the Storm
    Siani, Eye of the Storm 3U
    Legendary Creature — Djinn Monk (U)

    • “X is the number of artifacts you control plus the number of artifact cards in your graveyard”
    • “chosen at random from among your opponents”
    • “You and permanents you control have protection from Salamanders”

    Finally, here are some creature type lines that will appear for the first time in Commander Legends:

    • Legendary Creature - Horse - Keleth, Sunmare Familiar
    Keleth, Sunmare Familiar 1W
    Legendary Creature — Horse (U)
    Whenever a commander you control attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on it.
    Partner
    1/1
    • Legendary Creature – Elemental Lizard - Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar
    The site that I linked has him only as a lizard, but from one of the pictures from the original ebay listing I can spot the elemental in the typeline.

    Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar 1R
    Legendary Creature — Elemental Lizard (U)
    Whenever a commander creature you control deals combat damage to an opponent, it deals that much damage to each other opponent.

    • Legendary Creature – Naga Druid
    • Legendary Creature – Turtle Shaman - Archelus, Lagoon Mystic the Sultai card from the leaks
    Archelus, Lagoon Mystic 1BGU
    Legendary Creature — Turtle Shaman (R)
    As long as ~ is tapped, other permanents enter the battlefield tapped.
    As long as ~ is untapped, other permanents enter the battlefield untapped.
    2/4
    • Legendary Creature – Imp - Blim, Comedic Genius
    Blim, Comedic Genius 2BR
    Legendary Creature — Imp (R)
    Flying
    Whenever ~ deals combat damage to a player, that player gains control of a permanent you control of your choice. Then each player loses life and discards cards equal to the number of permanents they control but don't own.
    4/3
    • Legendary Creature – Faerie Knight
    • Legendary Creature – Rabbit Wizard


    Quickly as a note, there has been a monoblack card that steals a creature from opponents hand, but it put it in the graveyard at the end of turn (instead of the players hand.) Just wanted to note that.

    Did Zilortha, Strength Incarnate have an online appearance? It would be cool to be able to get a non-Godzilla one!


    no


    and even if it did he said “art from Online magic that’s never seen paper till now”


    That was the point of my comment, as the actual card did not have normal artwork in paper, it only had the Godzilla art. In fact, that was one of the major complaints about the card was that because it was the BaB card and only had the promo art, that we don't have an in universe artwork for. I don't play digital though so I have no idea if the card had an original artwork digitally or if they just went with the Godzilla art there too.

    I personally already consider colorless as the sixth color at this point, taking Purple's spot.
    Which is probably for the best. As it already comes with its own special mana symbol and is meant to represent the bizarre and alien. The only thing it lacks is really a true Barry's Land, as while we got Wastes, it doesn't have a unique type. Personally I'm fond of Dream, Rift, or Distortion.
    I would love A Barry's Land, but I doubt it would ever happen.

    Currently Colorless is my fav color though. Especially with all the non-eldrazi colorless coming out lately

    Thank you so much! I do everything from my phone lately so I couldn't look it up at the time!

    This honestly makes three decks I've always wanted to make possible-ish. Phage, the black knight that wants to be in the graveyard to be able to cast (can't think of the name), and the black Elder Dino (again can't think of the name).

    Countryside Villa
    Land Plains Common

    Countryside Villa enters the battlefield tapped unless you control three or more
    other Plains.

    When Countryside Villa enters the battlefield untapped, you may put a +1/+1 counter
    on target creature.


    Google translates the flavor text in two ways:

    "The female place is the place." -or-

    "There is always a place for the British route."



    This is supposedly the spoiler for Tencent's MTG page, but not only am I unable to locate the spoiler, it looks as though the website has been updated in many months.
    Thank you for the translation!

    I saw this on MtG Rocks My World on FB, but haven't seen it anywhere else and I can't read it hahaha. Also, I'm trying to upload the image but it is taking me a bit (I haven't fully posted a thread in years hahaha).

    Okay couldn't remember how to get into my photobucket so here is the link where I saw it.
