  • welan

    I am hoping that she allow you to play a forest or a swamp from your graveyard at the beginning of the upkeep. Not tap.

    • GRUULman

      That really has nothing much to do with affliction though.

  • PoodleMaster

    Anyone notice the set number is 3/5, in addition to the fact the type line is missing “God”? This is one of the most obvious fakes ever!

    • Zombie

      The cards are just placeholders/mock- ups. The art is legitimate Wizards art for each of the cards.

      Wizards has already released the art for each of the gods, and they’re exactly the same as the ones used in these “fakes”.

  • Anthony Bartolomey

    Mock- 6/5 trample. Blah blah 7 devotion is a creature. Whenever you play a land you gain one life. Whenever your opponent plays a land they lose one life.

  • Lemmywinks

    I’d imagine it’ll be along the lines of “when you play a creature, all of target opponent’s creatures get -x/-x (where x is 1 or 2) until end of turn. If a creature is killed in this manner, put a x/x black and green zombie token into play under your control.” Something like that. With it being Journey to Nyx, I expect there to be all sorts of graveyard manipulation. That’s what I hope, anyway.

    I think it would be cool if she had: “At the beginning of your upkeep (not may) put a -1/-1 counter on target creature.

  • kmk888

    The way they have described her throughout all of the flavor articles STRONGLY suggests regenerate and/or deathtouch. Also everyone should be aware that with these placeholders the cmc may not actually be 4.

  • Dr. Storm Crow

    I hope it allows creatures to deal damage in the form of poison counters. Or questions. “Would you like seven damage?” “Is there anything you can do to stop me?” “Who’s a little baby?”

  • welan

    I doubt it but I hope something similar to crisable of world. Less ab usable however it s probably it s going to be something opposite to the red green god however.Before declaring the blocker choose a creature and give it death touch and regenerate it if it was destroy at the end of the attack. Not my favorite but some will love it.

  • Cicsero

    Mock: 4/7 Indestructible As long as your devotion to black and green is less than seven, Pharika isn’t a creature. When a land or enchantment enters the battlefield under your control, target creature and opponent controls gets -2/-2 until end of turn. At the beginning of your upkeep you may return a land or enchantment from your graveyard to your hand.

  • dieseda

    Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control target opponent loses 2 life and you gain 2 life. At the beginning of your upkeep you may return target forest or swamp card from your graveyard to the battlefield.

  • picklejam

    My take is that on your upkeep, add 2/2 to a target creature. If creature is not green or black, add -2/2. This would go along with the fact that she can strengthen and weaken out of the same potion.
