From PT:GTC Sunday coverage

- 20 cards instead of 15
- 1 card from a winning deck (GP, WC or PT) each year
- Usual FTV stuff - lifemarker, special foil, english only, limited printing run - collector guide? i think that's a first
- Release date: Aug. 31st
- I couldn't get a print from the previewed artwork, and I don't have the faintest idea of what it is. A counter of some sort? Counterspell? Force of Will?

That's it, we're probably getting an Arcana annoucement this week.


This is the previewed art, no idea what it could be either. 
It kinda looks like a counterspell. But it could be a lot of things. The most common guesses I've seen so far are Mother of Runes, Mana Leak, Counterspell, Force of Will and Mystical Tutor.

Definitely Mother of Runes.
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
Couple of peopleare suggestng it might be Noble Hierarch? I'm less convinced...

Did Enlightened Tutor ever feature in a winning deck? Unlike Mystical Tutor or Mother of Runes it hasn't been reprinted since 6th ed but I can't think of a winning deck that ran it off the top of my head.

A case could strongly be made for Mystical Tutor too--you could say that the person being depicted is reaching out and getting something with Magic, and there are also books on shelves in the background. That being said, I think those 2 are the most likely, Mana Leak being the least likely and Counterspell and Force of Will being in the middle.

There's also a skull on the shelves in the background.  And she's wearing black.  I'm inclined to think she may be a black wizard.

Thanks for pointing out that skull; Mystical Tutor actually has a skull in the bottom right hand corner of her frame. And I don't think the colour of the clothing can help you figure out the colour of the card itself; Avacyn, Angel of Hope is wearing black, but we know she's not
