[OGW] Gigantic spoiler (Expeditions, Mythics)

oath bannerThe biggest single leak since New Phyrexia’s Godbook leak has been spoiled over on Reddit (link to thread). Someone is getting fired, I’ll tell you that right now. I want to caution anyone who actually looks forward to spoiler season, as I will be spoiling the heck out of the set (rhyme intended, for street cred purposes).

In this post, I will look at the two heavy hitters, the new Chandra and the new Nissa.

The new Chandra looks like this:

chandraflamespeakerChandra, Flamecaller is perhaps the best Chandra we’ve seen in years. Her +1 is effectively a mostly better Ball Lightning every turn, her 0 is crazy in red, and her “ultimate” is flexible enough to net the owner card advantage in many board states. Overall I’m really impressed by her, and I think she’ll see some constructed play. She might even be good enough for EDH thanks to the 0-ability.

Nissa looks even more awesome:

Again, I’m looking forward to using her in EDH for the -2 ability. There are a lot of cards that synergise well enough with that ability alone. The ultimate, if one gets there, is pretty close to “-7: You win the game”.

    You’re right that someone is going to pay for this. It’s going to be a lean Christmas for some poor sucker at the Wizards office. I very much like the new Chandra! She definitely deserves some love since most of her cards are lackluster at best. The +0-ability is especially interesting.

    • I like all of them, a Firespout with upside for one mana more is great in my book. She closes games fast as well, if left unchecked – contrary to some other PWs.
