'Tis the season for the Magic 2015 spoilers! Today comes from the fine folks over at Cardboard-crack.com. Straight from their twitter handle, check out this beast:

This guy is a mythic rare, and quite a monster. This first thing you think of when you see this guy is, "Man, imagine if the Tron lands were in standard?" How fun would it be to play this creature with those lands? It would be awesome. The fact that he can make himself, and his friends survive a board wipe like Supreme Verdict or Planar Cleansing might prove to be a little troublesome for control players.

Some people have already begun to talk about playing it in their Mono-Blue Tron decks. This card seems to be part of a five color cycle of creatures named after planes players have visited throughout the story of "Magic: The Gathering." It joins Soul of Ravnica and Soul of Zendikar. The Soul of Ravnica is Blue while the Soul of Zendikar is green. That leaves us with Red, Black, and White left for colors. However, it is not certain that Wizards will even have a creature for the other colors. However, with three of them spoiled so far, it may be safe to assume they will eventually make their way.

What do you think of it? Will this make your list of pre-orders? Or do you think it will be finding some space in your junk rare binder? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
