Akroan Horse

I love the flavor of this card, an excellent ode to the Trojan horse.


This is definitely a weapon that control decks will be using.  Scry is exactly what you want on a counterspell.

Fanatic of Mogis

Could very easily find a way into Red Deck Wins style decks.  Imagine Legion Loyalist into Ash Zealot into Boros Reckoner into Fanatic of Mogis kind of shenanigans.

Favored Hoplite

Another one of those build around Heroic cards.  Might find some kind of niche play.

Heliod’s Emissary

Interesting cards these Bestow creatures.  This one has a pretty useful ability.

Spear of Heliod

Basically a Glorious Anthem with upside.  This ability will definitely cause a few big creatures to think twice about attacking.

Tormented Hero

A pretty sweet one-drop for black, albeit not exactly in a well supported tribe for that color.  Can gain you some incremental advantage if you can abuse it well.  Definitely draftable if you are running a fair amount of combat tricks.

Whip of Erebos

WOW !!!  I love all of these Weapons of the Gods, but this is just sickeningly powerful.  I have no doubt that this card is going to be used to astonishing effect.  The Lifelink is just the icing on the cake.
