'Journey Into Nyx' preview week: 'Eidolon of Blossoms'

If only this cost less or was bigger.
Wizards of the Coast

This week begins the "Journey Into Nyx" previews on There is no particular order to the previews on the "Magic: The Gathering" site and there is no particular order here as well. With that in mind, here is the next card:

Eidolon of Blossoms - 2GG - Rare - Enchantment Creature - 2/2 - Constellation - Whenever Eidolon of Blossoms or another enchantment enters the battlefield under your control, draw a card.

It's a shame this card does not cost less to cast. However, let's pretend for a moment that it does. Without the casting cost, this card has a lot of potential. With the recent gain in popularity for Naya Hexproof in Standard, this card could have a chance to see play. However, that deck is fast-paced and hits very hard. Now let's consider the casting cost. A 2/2 for four mana is not something people start buying stocks into.

This card could be fun to play if Enchantress became a thing. Drawing cards is also a popular mechanic. The fact that it works in the lines of "constellation" makes it something to think about. This may have the potential to be developed in the block format. However, there is a small chance it will have any kind of immediate impact on the Standard.

If only it cost less or were bigger in some way. Will you try to break this card? Or is it a lost cause?

"Journey Into Nyx" hits stores on May 2. Prerelease events will be held the weekend of April 26 and 27. It will then be released online May 12. Finally, Game Day events will be held the weekend of May 24 and 25.
