Magic 2012 – Preview Cards

A number of 2012 (M12) cards were previewed on the main Wizards MTG site as part of a discussion about new and returning mechanics. http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/feature/144

First up there is the 2G, Creature – Treefolk, Dungrove Elder.

The new ‘evergreen’ keyword on this card, Hexproof, has been seen before, it’s just not had a specific keyword assigned for the ability, “This creature can’t be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control”, until M12.

While the, 3WW, Creature – Archon, Archon Of Justice, features the use of ‘shorthand’ for what was previously, "is put into a graveyard from the battlefield", and is now simply, “dies”.

There is also the return of a keyword, Bloodthurst, here on the 2RR, Creature – Minotaur Warrior, Gorehorn Minotaurs.

Bloodthirst

 

So, "Bloodthirst N" equals "If an opponent was dealt damage this turn, this creature enters the battlefield with N +1/+1 counters on it."

It also looks like certain Planeswalkers will be in the set, here is the 3BBB, Sorin Markov.
