Magic 2015 spoilers: Wealth of new cards, plus convoke, from walkthrough video

See also

As is well known, preview videos and pictures for the Duels of the Planeswalkers video games often have preview cards for the related core set sneakily inserted as well. Since IGN recently released a long Duels of the Planeswalkers 2015 preview, this naturally resulted in a lot of spoilers. More than twenty new spoiled cards were transcribed by MTGSalvation.com user Stapler here.

At 7:31 in the video, there are also two artifacts that appear to be called Hot Soup, costing 1, and Meteorite, costing 5.

Obvious highlights: An uncommon cycle of Paragons - 3C 2/2 creatures that pump their on-color friends and tap to grant abilities; a mythic "Soul of [Plane]" Avatar cycle of which the blue one is Ravnica and the green Zendikar, which appear to be a replacement for the Titan cycle as 4CC 6/6s with a keyword and two activated abilities that do the same thing from the battlefield and the graveyard; a Wall theme; Squid tokens; new rare legendary creatures; and... the return of convoke, apparently in at least white and black if not all colors.

All in all, this appears to be a core set chock full of goodies for old as well as new players. Magic 2015 might surprise us!
