Snapcaster Mage is one of four new cards from Wizards of the Coast’s upcoming expert Magic: the Gathering expansion set Innistrad revealed by Senior Director of Magic R&D Aaron Forsythe at Magic Weekend Philadelphia in a video with Brian David-Marshall.
Snapcaster Mage – 1U
Creature – Human Wizard (Rare)
When Snapcaster Mage enters the battlefield, target instant or sorcery card in your graveyard gains flashback until end of turn. The flashback cost is equal to its mana cost.
There are a plethora of different ways to abuse Snapcaster Mage from Innistrad.
In M12 alone, Visions of Beyond, Ponder, Mana Leak, and Incinerate are just a few examples of spells that Snapcaster Mage will let you reuse. Other cards like Hunter’s Insight, Timely Reinforcements are also great candidates to flashback with Snapcaster Mage.
There is no doubt that Snapcaster Mage will quickly become one of the most saught after rares in Innistrad.
What instant or sorcery do you plan on replaying?
Several other recent Innistrad spoiler cards include Garruk Relentless, Skirsdag High Priest, Stromkirk Noble, Fiend Hunter, Kruin Outlaw, Liliana of the Veil, Reaper from the Abyss, Hinterland Harbor, and Moonmist.
Innistrad contains 264 cards and will be released on September 30, 2011. Innistrad will be followed by Dark Ascension.
Innistrad Prerelease events will occur on September 24-25, 2011, there will be Innistrad Launch Parties on September 30-October 3, 2011, and Innistrad will be released on Magic Online October 17, 2011. The Innistrad Game Day will be on October 29-30, 2011.
