Blessed VS. Cursed Spoilers: Geist of Saint Traft and Mindbreaker Demon!

The Blessed VS. Cursed face cards were spoiled in today’s huge spoiler. Geist of Saint Traft is the reprint, and I love this card for EDH.

Translation for Geist of Saint Traft:

Geist of Saint Traft 1WU

Legendary Creature – Cleric Spirit

Hexproof (This creature can’t be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.)

Whenever Geist of Saint Traft attacks, put a 4/4 white Angel creature token with flying onto the battlefield tapped and attacking. Exile that token at end of combat.

The new card, the first card spoiled from SOI is Mindbreaker Demon. 

Translation for Mindbreaker Demon

Mindbreaker Demon 2BB

Creature – Demon

Flying

Trample

When Mindbreaker Demon enters the battlefield put the four the library of your library into your graveyard.

At the beginning of your upkeep, if you don’t have 4 or more card types in your graveyard, lose 4 life.

Pretty trash. If you make the card have so many drawbacks, why is it still not that powerful? Four card types? Four? In Standard? Sure, creature, instant, sorcery. What else? There’ll be no fetches, and you don’t see a lot of artifacts or enchantments hitting the yard. This may make the EDH cut, but maybe not even then. I like how reminiscent it is of Griselbrand. Everything in the card is four, except for the toughness. Griselbrand as all sevens except for eight mana cost. I like the reference. I’ll be back to touch on the other spoilers later today or in the following days. What do you think?
