Happy Monday MTG peeps,
This afternoon, Wizards of the Coast had essentially provided the name of the very first Magic the Gathering card to be spoiled / previewed for the newest set, Avacyn Restored.
EDIT (8:20 pm)- SPOILER UPDATE - Avacyn, Angel of Hope - SCROLL TO BOTTOM
This afternoon, on their Facebook page, a challenge went out to users and gaming fans everywhere :
~Darkness has fallen across the plane of Innistrad. After Avacyn disappeared, monsters overran the defenses and invaded the strongholds of humanity. Humans cower behind barred doors, fearing the evils that lurk outside. The time is dire; humanity needs Avacyn to return to rescue it. But she is locked inside the Helvault and needs your help to escape, so she can Ignite the Dawn and burn away the darkness!
Share this tab with your friends to reveal the Avacyn, Angel of Hope preview card! Avacyn will be revealed when we reach 10,000 shares.
On April 28-29, open the Helvault at a participating retail location's Avacyn Restored Prerelease to unlock the mysteries inside!
This Avacyn Restored spoiler is thought to have been designed by 360 Public Relations is brilliant but we have some advice for them - Magic the Gathering fans are a edacious / esurient bunch - especially when previews are involved - sooo we suggest that any applet requiring code to be hosted or data to be captured - do NOT leave it on your own url / domain as it will result in a crash and resultant 'denial of service' does no one any good - you, your client, or the 'fans'.
Make tracks over to the Facebook page for Magic the Gathering and start sharing so we can get our first Avacyn Restored spoiler - the Angel of Hope.
8:20 pm - Spoiler update - with the Facebook page app crashed most of the day, we finally score the first Avacyn Restored spoiler - Avacyn herself . . .
Avacyn, Angel of Hope - 5WWW
Legendary Creature - Angel, Mythic Rare
Avacyn, Angel of Hope and other permanents you control are indestructible.
A golden helix srteaked skyward from the Helvault. A thunderous explosion shattered the silver monolith and Avacyn emerged, free from her prison at last.
Ensure you start thinking about Avacyn Restored pre-orders. Personally, we will likely be picking up a 4x common / uncommon card lot set from MTG Mint Card as the price is still very good.
