Today Jan. 17, 2014 Brian David-Marshall revealed Felhide Spiritbinder, one of the newest "Born of the Gods" spoilers from Wizards of the Coast's upcoming expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set, in an article on

Felhide Spiritbinder - 3R
Creature - Minotaur Shaman (Rare)
Inspired - Whenever Felhide Spiritbinder becomes untapped, you may pay 1R. If you do, put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of another target creature except it's an enchantment in addition to its other types. It gains haste. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step.

"Copy of another target creature." That's quite the phrase. Felhide Spiritbinder by itself might not be the most impressive creature, however depending on what you're copying it can quickly do some ridiculous things. More importantly, Felhide Spiritbinder isn't limited to just duplicating creatures you control: You'll be able to replicate your opponent's threats too.

As a Minotaur, Felhide Spiritbinder's casting cost is reduced by Ragemonger and is pumped by Rageblood Shaman and Kragma Warcaller. David-Marshall points out that Felhide Spiritbinder is fantastic with "enters the battlefield" abilities such as found on Fanatic of Mogis and Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Indeed, Fanatic of Mogis is probably one of the best creatures from your own deck to copy with Felhide Spiritbinder.

Because Felhide Spiritbinder makes you exile the creature token during your next end step one way to gain additional value is to sacrifice the token to another spell or ability. Barrage of Expendables and Tymaret, the Murder King will allow you to deal additional damage to your opponent. If you're running black then Altar's Reap and Launch Party are two other cards worth considering.

How will you use Fated Intervention?
