Well, the Magic Panel at PAX East has come and gone and while we don’t have the video for it just yet, some lucky people were there and tweeting out the information and some other very good people were nice enough to collect that for us, so if you wanna see some awesome info for Dragon’s Maze or the name and identity of the next year’s block, take the jump.
And we’re just going to jump straight into pics with some explanation for each.
Ah, it’s Lavinia of the Tenth, one of the characters currently in the Return Block novellas.
And this here is Mirko Vask, Mind Drinker. As a high ranking member of House Dimir, this vampire is one of the few to have met Lazav directly and also played a role in the Secretist giving even Jace Beleren problems.
That looks to be his card, for those who can’t make that out.
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Legendary Creature-Ogre Warrior (Rare) 4RG Vigilance, Reach, Attacks each turn if able (What I think should be called Aggressor) Whenever a player plays a noncreature spell Ruric Thar deals 6 damage to them 6/6
So, he’s cool, also, he’s a Rare as are the rest of the Champions.
Saving the best for last we have the champion for the Simic Combine, Vorel of the Hull Clade. Too bad he looks either Human of Elvish cause I was really hoping for more of the crazy creature combos the Simic had in Gatecrash.
Well, that’s all our champions, but there is some more cool news to share for the Dragon’s Maze Prerelease, and pics to go with.
First off, Maze’s End, the prerelease card for the set and what the entire plane is gunning for. Oh, and since you can’t read it in the pic there.
Maze’s End, Land (Mythic), Enters the battlefield tapped, T: Add 1 to your mana pool. 3, T, Return Maze’s End to its owner’s hand: Search your library for a Gate card, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library. If you control ten or more Gates with different names, you win the game.
Yes, that does say you win the game, and since all of the gates will be available in Dragon’s Maze, that could make for an entertaining limited deck. Oh, one of the other things mentioned, all new artwork for each Guild Gate, too bad no one I found snagged pics.
I think that may be everything. Wait, I forgot about the announcement of all three set names for Friends, Romans, Countrymen the next block.
So, a strong gout of information here that has me getting excited for what comes next. Although the leaders aren’t Hybrid like I was expecting, this still looks like more fun to come from the plane of Ravnica and the Return to Ravnica block.
