In a unique twist for spoilers each day this week in the Wizard’s Daily Magic articles was a poll box called “You Decide.” Readers could choose different parts of a card in the poll. This being the first week it seems art was the #1 choice of the voters. I have a feeling that name will be next followed by rules. Here is the art:


Pretty wicked isn’t he. My first thought was new planeswalker. But since there was probaby a power/toughness choice in the poll (I can’t remember exactly) I’m assuming he is just some badass vampire ready to eat your annoying little sister.

Or perhaps he’s Liliana’s exboyfriend come back from the dead and ready to trash her new fling, Vampire Nocturnus.

Yes, there was a PW/TG line, so I think it is a legendary creature… it is said to be named Sorin… but that’s speculation… New rumours about Zendikar talk about the return of morph and kicker abilities with some curious differences, such as non creature cards with morph ability… Now I remeber an enchantment in Future Sight with morph, may be it was a clue for Zendikar abilities… Other rumours talk about new subtypes, such as “trap” ti name spells with alternative mana costs… So I think I must change my last opinion about this block theme…

Loyalty has been revealed! It’s a PWer!

With a loyalty of 4, Sorin Sengir may have a very short shelf life when he hits the board. I’m figuring that since he’s a suckhead, the abilities would be along the line of life gain . . . . exempli gratia – “+1 : your opponent losses 2 life and you gain 2 life” kind of thingy.

News about Sorin:

Name: Sorin Markov
Mana Cost: 3BBB
Loyalty: 4
Abilities: One +Loyalty, Two -Loyalty
Last ability: It is said that it’s the one that was originally designed for Nicol Bolas but it never had.

They revealed the 1st and ultimate abilities

+2: Deal 2 damage to target creature or player gain 2 Life


-7: Gain control of target player’s next turn.

Not too bad. But i’m still waiting to see if the 2nd is worthwhile

-3: target opponent’s life total becomes 10…!

a real vampire planeswalker: blood sucking and control of mind…!

great design…!
