A bunch of awesome spoilers this week. First is Path of Exile, a new Swords to Plowshares variant. We also see three new Scepters, Scepters of Dominance / Insight / Fugue with many players especially excited about the Scepter of Dominance. We also have a bunch of info about the upcoming Nicol Bolas planeswalker card with the ability to destroy non-creature permanents, control creatures and a last ability “better than Cruel Ultimatum”! Who doesn’t love some tasty functional reprints, we have the new Gaea’s Might in the form of Might of Alara and the reprint of the 2/2 dual color with protection from enemy color last seen in Invasion (e.g. Shivan Zombie). And lastly, a crazy rumor of a card named Blood Tyrant that supposedly gets 5 +1/+1 counters when a player loses a game. Time to get those Shahrazads!
