Born of the Gods Singles/Complete Sets Preorder Available

15Jan14

Hello again Magic: the Gathering players. Previews for the second and upcoming set in the Theros block, Born of the Gods, has begun just this week. To say that the MTG gaming community is excited would be a gross understatement. Fans are devouring (hopefully not literally) the latest new cards which will all be up on MTG Mint Card for pre-ordering.

To start off, let’s go over the returning abilities / mechanics. A big welcome back to Heroic, Devotion, Bestow and Scry. If you were fond of the ‘monstrous’ ability, you may be saddened to hear that it will not be returning. Do not be disheartened though as there are two new abilities which should make you very happy – ‘Inspired’ and ‘Tribute’ look to be not only rather interesting but potentially very strong abilities in the game. Two new cards featuring these abilities are;

Pain Seer – untapping this with the ‘inspired’ ability allows you to reveal and put your library’s top card in your hand and losing life equal to its converted mana cost.

Pain Seer
Pharagax Giant – casting this spell with the ‘tribute’ ability (Tribute 2) forces your opponent to either place two +1/+1 counters on the Giant OR having the Giant deal five damage to each opponent if tribute was not paid.

Here are a few new Born of the Gods cards we here at MTG Mint Card think will certainly be favorites;
• 3 new ‘Scry’-lands – Temple of Enlightenment (white / blue), Temple of Malice (black / red), Temple of Plenty (green / white)

• 5 new ‘gods’ – Ephara, God of the Polis (white / blue) with the remaining four still only a RUMOR (Phenax UB, Mogis, God of Slaughter BR, Xenagos RG, and Karametra GW).

Ephara, God of the PolisMogis, God of Slaughter
• a 5 card ‘Archetype’ cycle of enchantment creature. Archetype of Imagination is the first previewed one.

Born of the Gods officially releases on 7th February, 2014. Be sure to visit MTG Mint Card often as we continually update our site with all the new Born of the Gods cards for per-order.
