  • Derek

    I don’t even know how to react to this….Dack Faydon is by far my favorite planeswalker so I hope this is real.

  • Chi Sarades

    what is this

    • Jamie Foster

      It’s half of a Planeswalker from Conspiracy

    • Boomtoob

      Dack Fayden from da comics. They said he would be in Theros block but i guess not!

      • Chi Sarades

        you mean from the comics with ashiok. he looks like a pirate or thief

      • Zombie

        No one ever said he would be in the Theros block…

        I really want to know who said this because it was never confirmed by anyone at Wizards or anyone affiliated with the block.

        • Dr. Burn Crow

          I thought from the intellectual properties belonged to IDW, which meant this would probably never happen. But since it looks like it actually IS happening…holy sweet baby wine. Welcome to the Izzet Blitz machine, Mr. Fayden. Your application has been accepted.

          • since this doesnt share a storyline with any of the comics and isnt on an actual plane
            they dont have to worry about conflicting storylines which is why he wasnt in theros

          • Dr. Burn Crow

            Oh sweet baby Keranos. Set this up, I surely would like to play.

  • Zombie

    Well, I knew he wasn’t going to be in the Theros block, but it looks like my speculation about him being in an upcoming set was confirmed.

    That Conspiracy tho.

  • wombat604

    I can’t wait!!!!

  • Chi Sarades

    i just read his story. i love it

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    SHUT UP. NO WAY. SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP. DON’T PLAY WITH ME, WIZARDS. DON’T PLAY WITH ME LIKE THIS.

    • Zombie

      Ain’t playin’.

      Dack’s happenin bud.

      • Dr. Burn Crow

        Izzet Happy Family just got a little bigger. Praise Keranos!

  • Kevan Kramer

    I hope he is tri color PW U/R/W or U/R/G. We already have U/R/B PW.

    +1 target player draws two cards, then discards two cards
    -2 gain control of…
    -6 you get an emblem …. a spell that target….

  • Guest

    :)

  • MagicSpoiler

    Hit refresh to update the card image!

    • logan

      if you look at it you can see the red starting above and below the “D” in “dak f”

      • MagicSpoiler

        Thanks logan!

  • Zombie

    Hmm…. I think we have somewhat of an idea about him now with the newest update.

    +1: Target player draws two cards then discards two cards.

    -2: Gain control of target artifact (based off of lore, Dack Fayden is a notorious thief of rare items)

    -6: You get an emblem that says, “Whenever you cast a spell that targets X, do Y.

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess his CMC will be 3 (1UR) with a starting Loyalty of 3.

  • Chi Sarades

    what if its tri color

    • shikashika

      He can’t be. Go look at Bolas. Bolas is all around gold. Dack is U/R. You can see a little bit of the red creeping into the frame.

      • Chi Sarades

        i know

  • Josh Kaufman

    Nice, a U/R planeswalker that seems pretty broken. Depends on his CC though because if this is only legacy legal, he should only be 3 or 4.

  • thatoneguy

    On his second ability the letter after of looks like a t anyone else agree? What coukd it be? Two?

    • Mike Thomas

      Definitely Target. Not sure what it could target. Probably target permanent.

      • shikashika

        I think Zombie is right in saying “target artifact”. Dack is a master thief of rare items. It fits.

        • Mike Thomas

          But I think that would be far too narrow. For a -2 to be applicable only against very certain decks is a major design flaw for planeswalkers. In my opinion.

          • Zombie

            Well, he’s only going to be playable in Conspiracy Limited, Vintage, Legacy, and EDH.

            But I’m more focused on EDH for his purposes than anything else.

            Being able to take control of an artifact permanently is actually pretty relevant in almost any EDH game.

  • Chi Sarades

    how about making sifa grent as a planeswalker

  • Dack Fayden 2URR
    +1 Target player draws two cards then discards two cards.
    -2 Gain control of target creature, it gains flying and haste. Sacrifice it at the beginning of your next drawstep.
    -6 You get an emblem with ” Whenever a spell or ability you control targets a single permanent, copy it for each other permanent it can effect, then cast those copies for each other permanent.”

    IDK I’m just geussing.

  • DA

    He’s so… weird looking.

  • maverick

    looks like he is going to be every thing tibalt was supposed to be

  • EsperLeague

    Remember this is not the real Dack Fayden, it is just a guess, but it is a well-made one, right =)

    • Where did you find this.
      My guess was REALLY CLOSE.

      • Mike Thomas

        It has no loyalty. It’s not real.
        But as a guess, it looks pretty sweet.

        • Yep as guess its awesome

        • EsperLeague

          Oh, yeah, I forgot the loyalty xD
          I meant loyalty 3 or 2

    • Dack Fayden

      It is far more likely that his -2 is “Gain control of Target Artifact”.

      Also, he will have 3 loyalty.

    • Christopher Archer

      Bottom of the card reads
      “Wizard of Scandinavia”
      -_-

  • Will Schiefen

    If you look at the combining of the border, The blue part of the border fades into black, Im guessing hes a Dimir Walker, or Grixis, Rather than Red blue

    • Ghostwolf

      It’s not fading to black, it’s fading to red

  • Dylan

    The actual steal of secrets png from the wizards website does NOT contain this file. The only link that contains the file is off of someone’s Twitter account. If you can send a url to the PAGE containing the image, post it. Otherwise, there is no proof that this is real.

    • Josh Kaufman

      Simon does EU GP coverage so this is 100% real. Wizards is just trying to take one out of the JJ Abrams playbook and do some viral advertising.

      They might as well name this set Cloverfield.

    +1 Target player draws two cards then discards two cards.
    -2 Gain control of target enchantment.
    -6 You get an emblem with “Whenever you cast
    a spell that targets a single creature, copy it.
    You may choose new targets for the copy.”
    3 Loyalty

  • Tank Johnson

    He’s RU , 1RU
    +1 target player draws two cards, then discards two cards
    -2 gain control of target artifact
    -6 you gain an emblem that says,”When ever you cast a spell that targets a creature, gain control of it. Untap it and it gains haste.”
    Saw the whole thing on a official site.

    • guest

      link plz

      • big hessy

        Seems like a conspiracy to me

    • Adam Gillespie

      well your blatant lie is now shown up lol

  • Bradley

    Is this standard legal??

    • CORR

      You know you could have found the answer in less than a minute, right?
      And the answer is no.

  • Xero

    I’m assuming “Gmr kr Lhfi Uknaqttfp” and “ONRGZEDW” are anagrams. If anyone is good at it, and knows a decent bit of MTG (because it might contain something like ZEN for example, referencing Zendikar), then try to figure out what they are unscrambled. Additionally, upon looking at the HTML code for the announcement page, I found: “Gbdk beoh ar r zgmhb. W cikeiu pc gyomo rb aljkkj do o qzybvhah ofxqszaf.”

    • pokerufan7

      Naw man.

      For the first one, go look up vigenere ciphers. GVYJTHQXGR is the passcode and Gmr kr Lhfi Uknaqttfp is the message.

  • Dack Fayden

    Gmr kr Lhfi Uknaqttfp means “Art by Eric Deschamps”. He costs 1UR. His +1 is Faithless Looting.

  • maverick

    actually he is pretty good considering lol too bad he isnt standard he wouldve been awesome buto well atleast they finally made him i could see him used in legacy some what is rug delver

  • Derek

    Love it, Dack is my favorite Walker!

  • Guess conspiracy will have all the artifacts.

  • Zombie

    This is the completely spoiled OFFICIAL Dack Fayden card.

    Did someone say “Brand New Wallet- Busting Legacy Playable Planeswalker”?

    Cuz I sure did.

    Side note: FREAKING CALLED BOTH THE +1/-2.

    GET ON MY LEVEL.

    • Aaron Seet

      42/210 is pretty early for multi-colored cards, guess there will be tons of artifacts in Conspiracy

      • Danny Gravdahl

        It could be that the set is multicolor intensive like the Alara sets as well.

    • Necrachilles

      and you mostly called CMC, Loyalty, ult cost and emblem effect.

    • Kazdrax

      DO you think it could be used in Legacy?

      • Xero

        Absolutely, even if only for his +1. A repeatable Careful Study with a GOOD cost is insane. -2 is also great. You can take their AEther Vial, Relic of Progenitus (or just force them to crack it), Umezawa’s Jitte, or Sensei’s Divining Top. And maybe if someone happens to use Isochron Scepter or Blightsteel Colossus. -6 probably won’t be too useful in Legacy, but that doesn’t matter much. Also, costs 3 mana and has 3 loyalty so he can immediately take a bolt and keep on living.

        • Danny Gravdahl

          But the -6 is awesome in EDH. Dack, The Izzet want you…FOR MY NIV DECK!!!!!!

          • Xero

            Talking Legacy, buddy. Read the comment I replied to, Kazdrax’s comment.

    • Necro

      y u no modern? splinter twin want you!

  • Josh Kaufman

    Not only is this Legacy playable, but this is made perfectly for UWR Miracles. It fits the 3 slot which is where the Liliana’s and TNN’s of the world are.

    I’m just sad they can’t make good cards like this that are playable in Modern/Standard. Legacy gets Dack, Standard gets Kiora. Who do you think wins?

  • Fbn Dnl Schlr

    STRIKE! The ultimate is pretty useless though. What spells do you want to use on your opponents’ permanents that don’t destroy / bounce / etc. them?

    • Storm Crow

      Given that you gain control of them permanently and not just till end of turn you could use any spell like brute force for example. brute force becomes: gain control of target creature, it gets +3/+3 until end of turn.

      • Necro

        Brute force into fling might be fun.

      • Fbn Dnl Schlr

        Please remind yourself that Dack is only legal in Legacy, Vintage & EDH. And Conspiracy of course, but that doesn’t count as it’s similar to Cube.

      • Matt Stone

        Beserk.

  • Matt Stone

    Dack to basics.

  • Izznt fair

    First his type makes me lol cause i read it wrong and it is more fitting when read that way, lol
    Also just a thought for edh, play dack + him to dig, emblem up, then reality spasm opponents bombs or heck all their land even on their upkeep(so its untapped, lolz gg

  • Kazdrax

    Liquimetal Coating anyone? Steal ANYTHING.

    • BobTheTitan

      wouldn’t work, gotta cast.

      • butts

        Of course it would work. They’re talking about the -2, not the -6.

  • ThunderAssault

    Well, Jeleva is getting a new best friend in EDH. Although, that emblem with Overload cards (not playing them for their overload cost though since it wouldn’t work) would make them better since it would fizzle after gaining control of it. Pretty awesome. Can’t wait to get a hold of him :)

    • if they fizzle after gaining control of them, then if you overload Blustersquall, its basically gain control of all opponents creatures for 4 mana, and then they don’t tap, that’s epic.

      • Kad

        Blustersquall overload doesn’t target. In fact, overload mechanic specifically removes the word “target”, and the emblem says you have to target something.

        • Just because the word target isn’t on the card any more doesn’t mean it doesn’t target the creatures,
          The spell still has to target something, even if the specific word “Target” is removed from the card.
          Dack’s ult says “When you cast a spell that targets one or more permanents”, and Blustersquall overload targets EACH creature I don’t control. so I would gain control of all those creatures and then blustersquall would fizzle cause there’s no creatures that I don’t control.

          • Nyrab

            Brad, you’re wrong. It replaces target with “each creature you don’t control”.
            Blood baron gets killed by verdict while he has protection from white, because the white spell doesn’t target.

          • Verdict targets everything, he gets killed because he is not the sole target.
            Spells have to target something even if they don’t have the word “target” in them.
            When an overload spell says “each creature you don’t control” it is Targeting each creature, its a multi-target spell. that’s why it beats out Hexproof and Protection because they protect from single-target spells.
            Overload still targets multiple creatures, what you people are telling me is that some spells don’t have targets which is completely wrong, every spell targets something, be it SINGLE-target spell or MULTIPLE-target spell.

          • Jake Knipper

            WRONG! CHECK GATHERER RULING!

          • No need to yell.

          • Jake Knipper

            there is when your dont have the decency when someone goes and tell you that you are wrong to go check if just maybe you are wrong! its not that hard to check.

          • Well maybe instead of just saying “YOU’RE WRONG” people should be kind enough to explain why or how I am wrong. No one has said exactly what the ruling says so how am I to know if they have checked the ruling or not, there is absolutely no reason to get frustrated with me over a simple matter of confusion on the rules.

          • Jake Knipper

            i agree but there is also no reason that, given no one had mentioned the rules, and given that 2 separate people pretty clearly said your wrong and gave a pretty good explanation as well, that you might have thought it a good idea to check the rules before insisting for a third time that you were right when you were in fact wrong. my apologies for yelling.

          • Nyrab

            I’d say the yelling was acceptable because it made Brad check, and while I can agree that it sucks the ruling works that way, at least you know how it works and you can possibly use that knowledge to make you a better player :P
            Targeted spells and abilities can be a tricky thing sometimes

          • Trevor Terry

            They did explain how you were wrong, TWICE.

            You kept insisting that you were right – yelling was absolutely acceptable in this situation.

          • Yelling is not acceptable when we can all be civilized and explain our reasonings,
            I was very certain that I was right, I was certain that I didn’t need to check the rules, because to me that ruling sounds ridiculous. Though I am wrong and the ruling says that overload will not work with Dack’s Ultimate, my understanding of Magic says to me that all spells should have a target whether or not they say “Target”.
            I now know I am wrong but strongly disagree with the ruling.

          • Guest

            Are you trolling right now?

  • Guest

    Is Red/Blue auras a popular deck type? His emblem would be good for that.

  • ultramegalord

    that just seems……epic….. ill steal your (non emakrule) eldraze with this here shock :p.

    • ultramegalord

      mark of fury would be funny as hell too.

    • da

      Ghostfire :)

    • BobTheTitan

      or with the new strive cards…. I’ll give all of your creatures +1+1 and flying, then ill take control of em, swing in, and shake your hand. Sounds good to you?

      • ultramegalord

        Haste is the issue there tho

        • HatesHaste

          Yeah but if you get control of every one of their creatures, I think you can afford to wait a turn lol.

          • ultramegalord

            true enofe i was getting at u target the creatue to give it +1+1 flying unless its an aura you lose that bonus. i just really like mark of fury cause itt funny.

    • Jake Knipper

      or cauldron haze becomes gain control of all creatures… right?

      • ultramegalord

        Hahaha right you are!

  • DA

    Gonna put him(proxies) in my Grixis force draw/ discard deck… dat +1 effect.

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    He’s a better Tibalt. Almost everything Tibalt could do, he can do better.

    • Derek

      Tibalt can suck better lol

      • Dr. Burn Crow

        No lol. None.

      • Whiskerbro

        No lol.

        • Dr. Burn Crow

          Whiskerbro is now my bro.

    • Luke Holmes

      All it takes is for one card to be printed that makes random discard not random, and Tibalt will be a $30 card.

      • Da

        Tibalt really is not that bad… He’s one of my all-star cards in my Purphoros EDH deck.

        • Dr. Burn Crow

          Tell me more. I want to learn how to use my Tibalt to maximum effect. Right now, I’ve got an instant and sorcery heavy deck that pairs old Tibalt and Dralnu as a sideline event in Grixis.

          • DA

            For starters, he’s RR, a good turn 2 drop, giving me turn 1,3, and 5 to get only one more Devotion before Purpharos can attack.

            Then I just use his +1 if I have nothing particularly good in my hand.

            First game I won with him, no one took him serious, so I got off his -6 and finished the game.

            Second time he won me, my friend got smart and realized he had to kill Tibalt, or else I would use the -6. So, Tibalt being the man he is Took a Drana voltron right to the face for me, staving me off a turn from Commander Damage Death, allowing me to top-deck Firecat Blitz, killing my opponent (this game was 1v1).

            For the most part he’s just there for devotion, but, every once in a while I can win me the game, or save me a turn or two from death.

          • Dr. Burn Crow

            YES!!

      • Trevor Terry

        Library of Leng

  • sfdsa

    Doesn’t it seem strange that the set number is so low? Most multicolored cards fall around the last quarter, or at least the last half.

    • DA

      Maybe there’s no basic lands in it?

      • Derek

        I really really really hope there will be new full-art lands but I doubt it.

        • Mike Thomas

          I think the number is so low because the organization of that set is purely alphabetical. No colour barriers.

    • Kad

      It’s a conspiracy of course.

  • Daniel Gilmore

    squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Dack you are my new hero :D

    • Hawkmoon

      And Squee(eeeeeeeee) is too, so it seems!

      • Daniel Gilmore

        Squee has always been my hero, given he’s the only Goblin Planeswalker we’ve ever had (for all of five minutes)

        • Dr. Burn Crow

          Squee, now also known as Slobad.

          • Daniel Gilmore

            For what it’s worth, Squee might as well be a planeswalker given how hard he is to kill

          • Dr. Burn Crow

            No, in terms of mechanics, HE DIED. HE WAS DEAD. But I always thought that was in part because of the meddling of one Commodore Guff.

  • Marcus Chiu

    this reminds me of Full Metal Alchemist.

    • Derek

      Why? I don’t see it

      • harakka

        Yeah, the hand and the second ability, it feels like something from FMA.

      • Marcus Chiu

        Well now you we see it.
        And for the rest of your life, you will be cursed with an enchantment that says, “Dack Fayden will remind you of FMA.”
        :]

        • harakka

          You get an emblem with “Dack Fayden reminds you of FMA”.

          • Marcus Chiu

            ah. now you can’t get rid of that!

          • Happy The Cat

            door to nothingness on yourself
            that ‘ill get rid of it

  • Mick Cortella

    I love how the second ability connects with the storyline in the comics :)

  • Alyssa Sky Collins

    the -6 is pretty cool, but I dont like the idea of giving my opponent the upper hand with drawing cards unless I played blue, black, red and had a sire of sanity, made the deck a mill deck and force them to draw cards that theyre only going to have to throw away at the end of their turm.

    • Kevan Kramer

      His plus 1 is target player…so you opponent shouldn’t get card advantage unless u want them too.

  • asdasdas

    vintage sideboard vs MUD??

    • Pretry

      what about main? he can take any artifact, and every vintage deck plays Mox + more.

  • aharmlessquestion

    dack fayden + hidden strings, will this work?

  • Vincent Godin-Filion

    How much money do you think Dack will cost? I want him for my casual deck!

    • Antares

      A LOT, most likely. Hopefully not, but I can definitely see him being over 15 bucks just from EDH players wanting him. Think of Serra Ascendant. She’s 12$ purely from demand from EDH players. Dack has the added disadvantage that he WILL see play in Legacy and Vintage, driving his price up even more.

  • James Quinton Hicks II

    My hatred for blue makes me sad that he’s blue, but my love for red makes me want to play him.

    I’m so confused.
