WotC has given us access to some unseen preview cards for the upcoming Commander set, which will begin next week on our official commander rules page -- be sure to watch that page for the next few weeks to see what they've concocted for us :)

As a side effect of preparing for those previews however, TigTigger and I have been upgrading the rules page and forum hosting. There may be a short downtime this weekend (I anticipate less than an hour) as I roll over to the new setup.

In the mean time... here's a little treat to tide you over... :twisted:

Mana-charged Dragon.

Art by Mike Bierek. All preview links or copies must be accompanied by artist credit, WotC Copyright and preview sourced to mtgcommander.net

That would look nice as an oversized foil!

noting looks nice as an over sized foil, accept chaos orb, that's acceptable

The art is awesome, to bad you can never fully enjoy it on a 9x6cm card.

I am wondering though: the guy holding the bow and arrow in the foreground, why isn't he getting the heck out of there? You're facing a fire-breathing dragon that's 20x as big as you, do you really think you can go all David on this Goliath?

Everyone knows there is a tiny vulnerable spot on any dragon. It's the size of a postage stamp and makes blowing up a Deathstar seem like a walk in the park with all your mixed-metaphor friends :P

Agreed... that's kinda why I wanted to get it out there ;) I'll see if I can get one or two more up this week between previews.

His arrow is black... maybe he's trying to go all Esgaroth on this Smaug ;)

As Terry Pratchett reminds us, Arrows that have a million-to-one shot to hit the one weak point do so nine times out of ten. However, that looks like a pretty good shot at the dragon's exposed underbelly, so the archer might improve his chances of survival by firing blindly, using his off-hand, etc.

Seeing as how there appears to be eight total cards that are gonna be spoiled here on MTGcomander.net, is there any sort of scheduled timeline you can reveal to us about when each mystery card will be revealed?
