Ob Nixilis


  • It’s too blurry to see all of the details.

      Ob Nixilis, the Returned
      Legendary Creature – Demon
      3/4
      Flying
      When Ob Nixilis, the Returned enters the battlefield, target player sacrifices a creature and loses 2 life.
      Landfall – Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may have target player discard a card at random. If that card was a creature card, that player loses 2 life.

      • I could read what he did, it’s the important details that you can’t read.

    3/4

    For easier reading

    Also the life lost on the landfall ability might be a 7, not a 2

    If that card is a creature card, that player lose 3 (or 7?) life.
    3/4

    Personally, I think it’s fake. Even if the BfZ logo (as the card itself) is blurred out, it seems too big.

    • El_Pokito_Lama

      Also, the landfall ability wouldn’t check the nature of the discarded card, but the land you played if we’re looking at the current landfall wording. ;)

  • Max Von Weihe

    has landfall

  • Max Von Weihe

    whenever Ob Nixilis the Returned Enters the Battlefield, target player sacrifices a creature and loses 1 life

    • Kameenook

      2 life?

  • Aarhg

    This card is not real. The fact that there’s only a single word in the bottom line of text is one of the bigger flaws. Then there’s the set symbol looking a little off, and the fact that the whole card is blurred out is very suspicious as well. Fake, fake, fake.

    • Ryū

      Also doesn’t have the Wizards of the Coast copyright in the bottom right corner. Absolutely fake.

  • kltsurumaki

    Very not real.

  • Melissa Juice

    My eyessssssssssssssssssssss!!!

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    Boo. Fakes make Storm Crow sad.

    • Kameenook

      Nicol Bolas also disapproves of fakes, stupid Ajani mirroring Nicol Bolas………

      • Thename

        Ooh I would like to see that! Do you have a link?

  • Dewill

    FAKE.

  • Alex

    Too bad Maro has already all but confirmed that he will be a walker. Not to mention the guy who leaked gideon leaked what nixilis’s card will be.

    • Dr. Burn Crow

      When did that happen?

      • Alex

        When asked what planeswalkers other than the origins walkers would be in the BFZ story he mentioned ob nixilis. Check Blogatog.

    • Kameenook

      “All but” you nearly gave me a positive heart attack.

  • William

    I’m dying my eyes my eyes why did someone make such a bad fake

    • Aarhg

      It could be interesting to make a really convincing fake spoiler card some day.

      • William

        it would be the talk of the magic community not only would magic consider actually taking the person under there wing as a card designer everyone would make a big deal over it.

    • Nick Hannah

      Yeah, how did Ob go from 6/6 to 3/4? And why does it say lose life instead of loses life? I could of made a better version on Mtg Cardsmith.

      • Daniel Rouze

        unshackled ob nix is a 4/4 not a 6/6.

        the more you know.

        • Nick Hannah

          Ummm….. Fook of a took. Yes, I did just make the most obscure lord of the rings reference ever.

          And yes, you are correct. I was thinking about my version of Kothoped on Cardsmith… Heh.

  • Kameenook

    Card just seems too insane to be real, at 3/4 flying edict +2 life, he’s fine at 3BB, with the landfall ability? The second ability is just absurd when it’s gravy on the other one, however if this is real, then it’s pure card advantage and I’d play him even in control. Best case scenario is T6, drop him eat a dude, play a fetch, and win with value.

    • William

      Can you read it if you can could you send me exactly what it says

      • Kameenook

        I believe it is “Landfall, whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may have target opponent discard a card at random, if that card is a creature card that player loses 3 life.” I could be a little off of the exact wording because that’s just from memory at this point.

        • William

          thanks really needed that it isn’t that great anyway it seems to be a mythic while the RG locus is nuts

          • Kameenook

            This card is insane, it might not end games as fast as Omnabro, but it comes down sooner and is 100% card advantage from the second he resolves.

  • Zurran

    Fake it says lose 2 life not loses 2

  • Me

    I think this is fake. There will be a planeswalker Ob Nixilis though. Go to the section for the BFZ art and there is one with Ob Nixilis that is the correct shape and look for it.

  • David Fitzsimmons

    This site already knows that the person who spoiled Gideon had also spoils nixilis as a walker. Why did they even bother asking us?

    • Kameenook

      I don’t know why they keep releasing these “Fake or not”, but I have to admit they’re pretty fun.

      • David Fitzsimmons

        sometimes they turn out to be real. so i am fine with that, but this site itself acknowledged that the leaker of Gideon and Obnixilis was confirmed to be reliable source after Gideon was proven real. Then some time later they ask this for a card that ain’t even a planeswalker when all current hints and info from wizards points at Ob Nix being a walker? between the board game and dev talks regarding 5 walkers.

  • Alex Lopez Melero

    I think that possible have another Ob Nixilis in this Block. Because, a Booster Pack have a picture of Ob Nixilis. But I don’t know if is it.

    PD: Sorry my english :P

  • Johza

    I still think he’s getting a creature card, but this isn’t it.
    Surely he’d be bigger than 3/4 as a 5 drop legendary Ob card.
    Also the grammar on the first line of text is off. ‘sacrifice’ and ‘lose’ should both have ‘s’ on the end.

    • Zombie

      He’s actually got key art that says he’s getting a PW card.

      Ob Nixilis the Reignited or something.

      • cement dorado

        he looks happy as hell in that art. I bet hes like “i know I messed up guys, im really sorry. But I can finally go to other places, awesome!” I think he will be chaotic neutral…

        • William

          chaotic neutral for ten minutes YOU LOOKED AT ME FUNNY AAAAAH chaotic evil in 5 mins or less

          • cement dorado

            idk.. I think he gonna chill imo

          • Dr. Burn Crow

            I don’t think of a man who has sworn to destroy the plane he was imprisoned on is what you could consider “chill.”

          • James McTernan

            Maybe Ob would chill if he just took whatever cement dorado is smokin’.

        • Zombie

          Ob Nixilis is decidedly evil. He is the epitome of the worst of Black.

          He’s a genocidal, power hungry monster that turned himself into a demon.

          There’s nothing neutral about him. He only does things for himself at the expense of anyone unfortunate enough to be near him.

          • cement dorado

            idk. I feel that if you lose your powers and then gain them because these planeswalker. im pretty sure I would be like. ok ill be chill

          • Zombie

            Ob Nixilis has done nothing but kill people.

            Pretty sure he’s not chill.

          • cement dorado

            idk… my gut cays he will chill.

  • Kevin Johnstone

    There is an Ob nixilus for sure because the BFZ event pack (boosters) has a pic of him on one of the boosters…. in other crazy news… KIORA is also on a pic?! Suweeet

    • Dewill

      Ob as a legendary creature. and Kiora as a Planeswalker.

      • Kameenook

        Ob Nixilis, Reignited isn’t likely to be a creature.

  • SomeDude

    I’ve heard about Kiora, Master of the depths and Ob Nixilis the Reignited as planeswalkers, you can see their pictures on the boosters.
    I’m also hoping for a WUBRG legendary ally that I can use in commander.

    When Ob Nixillis, the returned entres the battlefield taarget player sacrifices a creature and loses 2 life.

    Landfall – Whenever a land entres the battlefield under your control you may have target player discard a card at random. If this card is a ‘xxxxxxx’ card, that player loses 2 life.

    Not sure about the end bu the rest sounds good

  • Rockstick

    The picture isnt blurry enough to be a real leak

  • tibalt the master of pain

    FAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • tibalt the master of pain

    WHERE IS THE COPYRIGHT PEOPLE WHO DON’T THING THIS IS FAKE

  • Hafglop

    This is fake everyone, he should be ob nixilis reignited. Ob nixilis was a planeswalker who was cursed by the chain veil and lost his spark. if his name contains “Reignited”, that means that his spark is reiginted. Also, in this horrible fake, the name is ob nixilis the returned, not reignited.

  • Kevin Johnstone

    was real, in the form of a PW ;p

  • bentheechidna

    The set symbol is the Zendikar expedition symbol, which is reserved for lands currently.
