Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
Some rather exciting news out today regarding the next (and last) Magic: the Gathering core set, named 'Magic Origins' to be released 11th July 2015. Specifically, a partial card image obtained by Redditor 'Pewpasaurus' was posted showing the foil rare for the Magic Origin Intro Pack. Image appears to have been snapped from a yet-to-be-published distributor's catalogue. Let's have a looky-loo now !
Legendary Creature - Human Soldier, Rare
Whenever a creature deals combat damage to you, if Hixus, Prison Warden entered the battlefield this turn, exile that creature until Hixus leaves the battlefield.
Interesting Oblivion Ring on a stick and what we are certainly more interested in is the power / toughness which was cut off in the product page layout.
We've seen this Hixus before in the Duels of the Planeswalkers Magic Origins video -
"Four years under the guidance of Hixus has shaped you into a powerful combat mage. Hixus believes your natural talent for wielding magic bellies something special about you. He suspects that - like his own mentor - you may be a Planeswalker."
Wrapping up - some additional 411 from the mothersite about Magic Origins to get hyped with -
Magic: The Gathering: Origins is a set that explores what it means to start out on a magical journey, and how people change as they progress through their lives.

Magic: The Gathering: Origins also plants the seed for Magic’s future storylines, allowing players an insider’s glimpse of what is to come. This set serves as the prologue for some epic stories, and it’s your chance to be there at the start of it all!
