Continuous Conflux

January 10, 2009

We have pictures here of some french Conflux cards. I must say, the art is getting better with time. 

grixiszombiecounterThis is Sedraxis Alchemist and Countersquall. Sedraxis Alchemist bounces a non-land permanent to it’s owner’s hand when he comes into play, but only if you control a blue permanent.

Countersquall is definitely something I will be looking forward to. It counters a non-creature spell, and it’s controller loses 2 life. An overwhelming Negate. Counter that Bitterblossom, Ajani Vengeant, or Cryptic Command that has dreams of ruining your day.

thronefusionHere we have Sigil of the Empty Throne and Fusion Elemental. Sigil of the Empty Throne is an enchantment that puts out a 4/4 flying Angel token whenever you play an enchantment spell. The orb of insight has 12 hits for the keyword “enchantment” and 6 hits for the keyword “aura”. I am just so glad that this isn’t somehow triggered by artifacts. The R&D department always makes artifacts so synergistic, I am happy this is for enchantments. Also I am excited to see the Angel tokens made for this card. Unfortunately there was a hit of zero for “Guay” on the orb of insight. Looks like we won’t be seeing anything by phenomenal artist Rebecca Guay in this latest installation of the Shards of Alara block either.

Fusion Elemental is an expected creature. Nothing too ground breaking here. No abilities to say of is kind of annoying as I could see a little bit of trample and vigilance there, but that is asking too much for bringing 5 different colors together I guess. Tsk, Tsk Conflux. Reward the player a little more for breaking their butt to get all of these colors. 

The orb of insight has a hit of 1 for “WWUUBBRRGG” which is more than likely “Child of Alara”. Something that is confusing me is the hit of 3 after typing in “Planeswalker”. I understand Nicol Bolas, but what else? We shall see. Perhaps something that adds or subtracts 3 loyalty counters from target Planeswalker? It will be interesting to see where they go.

When he comes into play, discard your hand. Each opponent sacrifices a creature for each card discarded this way. A solid 6/6 flier for 6 mana. Nice work with unearth. Fill your graveyard up with creatures and make your opponents sacrifice all of theirs. Also that big chin of his makes him look like Jay Leno.

Bon voyage,

    I’m just glad someone else really likes Rebecca Guay’s artwork. I hope Richard Kane Ferguson is still making cards, too.
