Journey Into Nyx Spoilers Part 6

We are entering our second week of spoilers. We've got the spoilers from PAX East and we also have the Journey Into Nyx trailer. Let's check that out first...

Now onto the spoilers!

Kiora's Dismissal

Looks good. Great for blue control to remove enchantments from the battlefield. Essentially Unsummon for enchantments with a kicker (or Enchantment Creature removal)

Polymorphous Rush

Well, I can imagine some crazy shenanigans with this card... I look forward to seeing this in play.

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed

Ah, the King Midas card... It also fits with Gild from Born of the Gods, except this is a creature and can happen more than once.

Worst Fears

So... Sorin Markov's final ability for the cost of 8 mana and no chance to flashback. Probably won't see play in Standard.

Forgeborn Oreads

Burn for playing enchantments. Interesting...

Hydra Broodmaster

This looks like fun for Green Devotion decks. So if you were to pay 7 total mana, you would now have a 10/10 and three 3/3 hydras... I like it...

Pheres-Band Warchief

Centaur tribal? Interesting.

Athreos, God of Passage

I already like this guy. Cheap cost but forces opponents to make choices upon your creatures dying.

Well, there has to be a downside to a 5/5 flying demon for three mana and opponents drawing extra cards is it. Of course, this stacks so they'll have many cards if you have many of these on the field. And they discard only at the end of their turn. So this will work with Thoughtseize, Duress, etc. Also, This will be a great card with Waste Not, I think. Will see Modern play with Liliana of the Veil and Waste Not probably.

Interesting abilities. Doublestrike with one power, trample, and combat damage to players allows you to play the top card of your library...

Copy spells for creatures. At 2 mana it's good but with the multikicker effect, it's better.
