Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch - Rare :B::R:

Legendary Creature - Human Cleric

First Strike, haste

Unleash

Each other creature you control with a +1/+1 counter on it has haste.

3/3
That's pretty darn good.

Cleric is an interesting choice.

Snapcaster Mage is the best card of all time. How do you deal?

Interesting.

oh **** 4/4 for 4 that turns simic, golgari and rakdos into powerhouses?

standard playable. Perhaps. Though being at the end of the rakdos curve does hurt her a bit.
I can't see this replacing Falkenrath Aristocrat in most cases, but rotation is a thing. Very good card (probably the saving grace of today's spoilers).

WotC doesn't care about flavor. Their forum is the only place where an ORC can kill a troll...

A source would be greatly appreciated to be sure.

If this card is real, Jund just found its replacement for Falkenrath Aristocrat when Innistrad rotates...This girl may not fly, but she's very tough to block and even has a relevant ability if you can add more Unleash creatures to the fray.
Source is reddit. Go dig through that. 
Interesting the most direct synergy with a keyword (including having it herself). It's possible it will see competitive paly, but it's a toss up on the format around it.

Meh on SImic and Golgari. Especially Simic, evolve creatures don't start with +1/+1 counters.

Congratulations, they have activated your trap card!

well, play two creature and let one evolve?
Everybody, ignore the part where it gives other creatures haste. You should just see a 4/4 with first strike and haste. 
Seems pretty close to many of the customs floated around. I like.
She is good, really good, not Swagtusk incredible and not....Teysa...CryYell
omg it's freaken beautiful
Surprised

Really nice card.  The final ability is just gravy if you can take advantage of it.
She's even more impressive after the fact that we all just walked away from Teysa...
Hey I like this one, it's pretty solid.

Too bad the last line is kinda never relevant. I guess if Geralf's Messenger didn't etb tapped it COULD be relevant every now and then in constructed, but right now nah.

I like. Jund with Corpsejack Menace action, mayhaps?

This set is bipolar. Teysa, Envoy of Rosewater to this beautiful beatdown machine.
To be fair though to her last ability, think of her as an unleash lord for haste. Remember people, we still don't know what all the other Rakdos creatures are in this set. Yes she is 4 CMC, but in limited at least it'll help later on anyway mid to lategame.
Definitely today's saving grace.  I was astonished that the most interesting preview was Azorius Guildgate's new flavor text.  Anyway, Exava is kickass.  I love that she's a human.  Really opens up my options since Teysa's card is crap.

huh. 

Damn, she's harder to kill than reckoner 
More a fighter than a witch. But the artwork was kinda showing that already. Still - the cleric type feels slightly off.
Not a biggie and nonetheless a decent card.
Although I still think she's quite ugly. =P But that might be because she's grimacing.
haste is worth building around

this combos with unleash

4/4 for 4 is decent

most of the unleash will already be in play by the time this drops
Standard will probably only care about the actual body, since they just use a mish-mash of the best cards which means +1/+1 counters are unlikely to show up with enough frequency.

However I am going to love this for an all-Rakdos all the time deck. Welcome to the dark carnival, friend.

Everybody, ignore the part where it gives other creatures haste. You should just see a 4/4 with first strike and haste. 

Is this (ignoring abilities) your new meme, like when Rorix was going around saying every card was jank?

As Matt_Holck points out, Fervor is a pretty strong effect to get for free.

It's kind of funny how this is out of color for Simic creatures, but that doesn't matter because they usually don't evolve on the turn they show up anyway. Whereas you can have a bit of fun with golgari scavenging Slitherheads on to things to give them haste.     

Constructed playable based on the body, and I think the granting others haste is not that hard to trigger; if nothing else there are other creatures with unleashed.  And in an ideal world where the mana base somehow worked out there's stuff like Master Biomancer.

Cats land on their feet. Toast lands peanut butter side down. A cat with toast strapped to its back will hover above the ground in a state of quantum indecision.

Aristocrat/Hellrider replacement once Innistrad rotates.

As for the haste thing, Gore-House Chainwalker, Thrill Kill Assassin, and Hellhole Flayer are cards.
"I have existed from the morning of the world and I shall exist until the last star falls from the night. Although I have taken the form of Gaius Caligula, I am all men as I am no man and therefore I am a God."
Unleash, Scavenge, Graft, Modular, Sunburst, Devour, Bloodthirst, Amplify... the lord ability might be relevant more often than not.
spikes
Oh wow.
Boring, but eminently playable, even as just a 4/4 haste first strike for 4. Post rotation Hellrider or Falkenrath replacement.

I wish she granted first strike to other counter-bearers for symmetry, though.

Worst Champion for EDH though.
Oooook?
So... My opponent plays Deadbridge Goliath on turn 3.
Then Rancors it twice on turn 4 and tosses in Silverblade Paladin.

...

No synergy at all with Rakdos, Lord of Riots.
maybe if you guys used her in an unleash deck, then the last line would have meaning. just a thought. i mean cmon

Yes. Use it in an unleash deck that tops out at 4 cmc, finishing off with this on turn 6 when you have drawn your fourth land in RB aggro and have exactly 0 cards in hand after casting this.

thank you. because all rakdos decks need to be super aggro and have everything cost under 4 cmc

Cleric is an interesting choice.


Lyzolda, the Blood Witch - it comes with the title.

FTFY. Including your punctuation and capitalisation.
