M11 first spoilers

Hi again. I'm back to posting and, with me, comes the first M11 spoilers. So, let's get down to business!

The first one is a reprint from an "old" card thats been printed in every core set (excepth for ninth edition) and in ravnica. It doesn't have an image, but it will have at least 1 alternate art because it's the buy-a-box promo. It's, yeah you got it, Birds of Paradise.

Next up, cards with picture preview from the Archenemy product, wich are though to have a place in M11.

First up, Sorcerer's Strongbox. A random draw 3 artifact. It may not seem like it, but I realy think this is a good card. Let me tell you why. Why is the reason that UW control is one of the best decks in T2 format? The answer is: Draw. Blue has the most powerfull draw cards in magic and having card advantage is great. So, if a mono-red deck or a mono-green deck could get their hands on a playset of this babies, it would most certainly rock!

Next up, the Baneslayer hate card, Plummet. A simple instant that destroys a flying creature. If Baneslayer stays in Standard after the rotation, I guess well see a lot of play from this baby here.

Chandra's Outrage. I would play this in a burn deck. It kills a big creature AND it punishes your oponent for ever thinking about playing that creature. For a 4 mana common (at least in Archenemy) it's a hell of a card!

Reassembling skeleton brings back some sort of unearth mechanic into M11. For 2, it returns to the battlefield at instant speed, although tapped. It's nicely used at the end of your oponents turn, or against a "sacrifice a creature" card, or against mass removal. I don't think it will see Standard decks, but it will see Limited play for sure.

It's all for today. Thanks for reading.

So sit back, relax, and let me flay your mind.
