Time Spiral block

From MTG Salvation Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Time Spiral block is the twelfth block consisting of the large expansion Time Spiral (TSP symbol.png) and the two small expansions Planar Chaos (PLC symbol.png) and Future Sight (FUT symbol.png). The block came out in 2006-2007. [1]

The theme of this block is Time; Past, Present and Future. Timeshifted cards are part of that theme. 121 Cards from the past were timeshifted into Time Spiral (i.e. Unstable Mutation). 45 cards were "alternate reality" timeshifted in Planar Chaos (i.e. white's Wrath of God was timeshifted to a black Damnation). 81 cards were "futureshifted" into Future Sight (that have not been printed before but may appear in a future set; e.g. Boldwyr Intimidator was later printed in Morningtide).

This block introduced the two Artifact subtypes, Fortifications and Contraptions, in addition to the first Tribal card. These were futureshifted in Future Sight.

Keywords introduced in this block: Split second, Suspend, Vanishing

Futureshifted keywords: Absorb, Aura Swap, Delve, Fateseal, Fortify, Frenzy, Grandeur, Gravestorm, Poisonous, Transfigure, Typecycling

Evergreen keywords introduced: Deathtouch, Flash, Lifelink, Reach, Shroud

Keywords reused from the past: Bloodthirst, Buyback, Convoke, Cycling, Double strike, Dredge, Echo, Flanking, Flashback, Graft, Hellbent, Indestructible, Kicker, Landcycling, Madness, Morph, Rampage, Scry, Shadow, Storm, Transmute

No keywords from the Kamigawa block were reused.

All three of the expansion names in this block are also names of cards (although not from this block).

Mega cycles[edit]

  • Ezrith-Mana1.gifManab.gif cycle: A cycle of black cards that cost Mana1.gifManab.gif and destroy a nonblack creature at different points in time. Time Spiral's Premature Burial destroys a creature in the past, Planar Chaos' Cradle to Grave destroys a creature during the same turn and Grave Peril printed in Future Sight will destroy a nonblack creature in the future. All three cards bear flavor text attributed to a character by the name of Ezrith, druid of the Dark Hours.
