Looking at the very small pictures in the Trading Card Game section, all the promos will be creatures and looking at the art/blurry text it seems that they will be the present cards excluding whispering madness and a dimir creature that hasnt been previewed yet.
The Boros creature also looks too different to be an alt of Firemane Angel.
A wise man on film sequels:
Watching sequels to really good films is like visiting a bollock kicking parlour, paying your money and then proceeding to get your bollocks kicked...then leaving and returning at a later date to repeat the process. -iamthehollow
Decks: :R::G: Karn Tron :R::U: Bloody Fish There Will Be Blood (movie).
No the part thats showing seem to be the light-helix blast thing coming out from the avenger impaling some creature.
...that looks like an arm to me... Well, we'll see it soon enough.

Also (unlike Treasury Thrull, Fathom Mage and Rubblehulk) the length of the text lines in its text box does't match up with the text on the image of the card in the spoiler gallery.

The Boros one is Foundry Champion.  Text matches, picture's similar.

Rules Advisor

Agree with Strago.

I scrolled in yesterday and I figure no reason to try and strain my eyes and speculate what the 2 unknown cards were. I swear the Dimir one looks like a giant shadowy mantis...
Also, I don't think that Dimir is a creature card.  There's no subtype on the type line.  I bet it's a sorcery.

Rules Advisor

Dimir is definitely a creature. It has P/T. Its creature line is just short; it's a horror or something. The Orzhov one definitely looks like Treasury Thrull and the Simic one definitely looks like the Flustermage. The text matches up and its clearly a female in the alternate artwork. The Boros is definitely an elemental of some kind- the Foundry Champion seems highly likely. The Gruul one is really obscured; hard to say one way or another.
Favorite set: Arabian Nights Favorite planeswalker: Taysir, the One Made of Five Favorite book cycle: Ice Age Favorite creature type(s): Elephant (W), Minotaur (R), Shade (B), Spider (G), Cephalid (U) Myr (Artifact) Pauper: Monoblack Control Modern: Zombie Tribal; Unyaro Stax Cube: The Moons of Mirrodin

You're right.  I didn't notice the P/T.  I think Gruul is Rubblehulk, though, based on the text.
