Dragon's Maze Spoilers

[EDIT] Crap. Folks are Googling their way here for Dragon's Maze spoilers, an outcome I should have predicted when I put up a post labeled "Dragon's Maze spoilers" a week before actual Dragon's Maze spoilers came out, but didn't.

Hey, welcome. The blog is a grab-bag o' things, but the other Magic stuff is here

As some of you might know, the next magic set is called Dragon's Maze. In it, Niv-Mizzet finds a way to settle the conflict between Ravnica's 10 guilds with the creation/discovery of a maze across the city. The guild whose champion is the first to make it through the maze will (ostensibly) be the one to rule over Ravnica.

The images of the champions have been released, but their stats have not. I've compiled a list of those characters and their cards and estimated their abilities based on my knowledge of Ravnica, the mechanics introduced in Return to Ravnica and Gatecrash, and my limited understanding of Magic's current design philosophies.

It's a good ability that works well with bloodthirst, even if the draw/discard thing is more red than green.

On the other hand, most people I know would kill for bed-head like that.

I'm still trying to figure just how breezy the average Azorius dais is. From the looks of that cape, I'm guessing "surprisingly breezy."

And what if her helmet horns get stuck on something, like a low-hanging chandelier? She'll need the curvy knife. Trust me.

Cause guys, it is just weird. Do they lay eggs? Do they have human-compatible junk? I know they can play "Gatekeeper and Keymaster" with elves, but that raises even more questions.

He didn't get it. :(

Do not google Oglaf if you're at work.

I think you once asked me what if I read your magic stuff, well I read this one.

You write good jokes.

They crazy thing is that I put them up on my tumblr and the last one was popular enough that it's still making the rounds.

Actual best thing: a week after the real cards were revealed, someone reblogged these and felt it necessary to point out they weren't real cards.
