My two favorite cards spoiled so far:

Flame-Wreathed Phoenix
2RR
Creature-Phoenix
Flying
Tribute 2
When Flame-Wreathed Phoenix enters the battlefield,
if its tribute wasn't paid, it gains haste and "When this
creature dies, return it to its owner's hand."
3/3

Mogis, God of Slaughter
2BR
Legendary Enchantment Creature-God
Indestructible
As long as your devotion to black and red is less
than seven, Mogis isn't a creature.
At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep,
Mogis deals 2 damage to that player unless he
or she sacrifices a creature.
7/5

Tromokratis 5UU

Legendary Creature Kraken
Tromokratis has hexproof unless it's attacking or blocking.
Tromokratis can't be blocked unless all creatures defending player controls block it. (If any creature that player controls doesn't block this creature, it can't be blocked.)

8/8

Seems like a tank in draft, but just another overpriced fat creature.

I don't get how Tromokratis is not mythic.

The 5 new gods are all going to be mythic, as well as any planeswalkers (Kiora). If there's a Xenagos card that will be certainly be mythic. There are only going to be 11 or 12 mythics in the set and at least 6 (probably 7) are already claimed. It's likely that there just weren't enough slots to have a mono-colored mythic in every color.

Xenagos, God of Revels
3rg
Legendary Enchantment Creature God Mythic Rare
Indestructible
As long as your devotion to red and green is less than seven, Xenagos isn't a creature.
At the beginning of combat on your turn, another target creature you control gains haste and gets +X/+X until end of turn, where X is that creature's power.

Searing Blood

Searing Blood deals 2 damage to target creature. When that creature dies this turn, Searing Blood deals 3 damage to the creature's controller.

That's probably the case. What I really meant is the card just "feels" like the kind of card they originally described as what would be a mythic rare.

To put a positive spin on it, my hope is that they've heard our cries and want to make an Enchantress general Bant colored instead AND only make it 3cc

I was anticipating the GW to be something enchantment related and was similarly deflated to learn it's just another ramp card.

I absolutely agree. At rare it feels like it should be non-legendary or lack a name. I had similar head-scratching as to why Malignus isn't legendary.

i doubt that. it's a very powerful 3 drop, sure. compares fairly against hero of bladehold. though unless we go back to white aggro being amazing, this isnt the $. it doesnt end the game in 2 turns, doesn't beat a 4+ drop in a fight, and doesnt go in the control decks.

I agree. This will replace Ajani as the 3-drop in those Boros deck. If you have this followed up with Spear of Heliod, ughhh.....

This guy is going to be attacking and blocking so often that he might not last more than a few turns anyhow.

Is there a card in standard that would allow him to block more than one creature?
