This is the first round of spoilers: we're getting some more (albeit fewer) next Monday as well. And important note: everything Serra's Guardian and after isn't available in packs.

https://scryfall.com...der=set&as=grid

Some observations:
  • Is Militia Bugler playable anywhere? I feel like it should be, but for three mana maybe it doesn't do enough - although mini-Recruiter effects can't be bad... right?
  • Demon of Catastrophes is ridiculously good and I hope it sees play. It feels trivially easy to sac your Llanowar Elves into this T3 and hit someone for six T4.
  • Diregraf Ghoul is a legit reprint. Hopefully aggro decks will take more of a Bx bend post-rotation, because mono-R has been so boringly consistent.
  • What does Infernal Judgment signify? We don't have any big colorless threats in Standard now... maybe RTRTR will have Eldrazi make a surprise appearance?
  • Apex of Power singlehandedly caused Mizzix to go to $8 and I think that's hilarious. It's not nearly that good, but some fools just ask to be parted from their money.
  • Guttersnipe being in Standard again makes me feel all kinds of warm and fuzzies.
  • Of course a set couldn't go by without Colossal Dreadmaw.
  • Gigantosaurus makes me feel things. Big Timmy things. Could this be Modern-playable in an MGD shell? Probably not, but a man can dream...
  • I'm totally in lesbians with Vivien Reid. She may not be super good, but her suite of abilities signify that she can potentially carry a deck. And that ultimate is backbreaking.
  • Desecrated Tomb will probably make its way into Elenda one way or another. Plus, having bat tokens at long last makes me very happy.
  • Reliquary Tower! Such excitement - it desperately needed a reprint.
  • Nexus of Fate makes me sorta mad that it's the buy-a-box promo. It's a pretty unique effect, much like FS+SS, and is a wincon in EDH if you can mill yourself out (which isn't too difficult). Plus, being instant speed is significant. I wouldn't expect this to drop below $15 for quite a while.
So what're your thoughts?

Bugler is strong. Especially with white having a good presence all standard season. THere were cards similar to catasrophies in innistrad that were never played. With tons of good counterspells, instant speed bounce and exile effects I doubt this demon will see any play other than some niche sideboard plays. Difregraf ghoul is what this set needed. A good 1 drop that doesnt get murdered by chainwhirler.

 

Gigantosaur is a meme card.

I suspect Core 19 will have an Eldrazi subtheme as a flashback to potentially clue us in more into Bolas and Ugin's relationship and why Bolas wanted them freed. Infernal Judgement might therefore just be a card for the limited environment if nothing else.

Alpine moon is neat. I like that they're exploring some mana denial strategies again in the game.

 

As far as the mythic dragon cycle goes, Chromium looks like the strongest by a huge margin. He has everything you could want in a control finisher.

 

Contrite cleric is exactly what I wanted in CoCo. Scooze is too unreliable to fight against shit like KCI and Hallowed one. This is the card G/W decks need.
