Maro's MH2 Teaser

Mark Rosewater gave his traditional teaser with the following hints.[1][2][3]

First up, here are some things you can expect:

Here are some snippets from rules text that appear in the set:

  • “Whenever you cast your third spell each turn,” —
  • “for each other Ooze you control.” — Aeve, Progenitor Ooze
  • “If an ability of a <CENSORED> or another <CENSORED> you control triggers, that ability triggers an additional time.” — Harmonic Prodigy (Shaman, Wizard)
  • “This ability costs 1 less to activate for each +1/+1 counter on creatures you control.” —
  • “you may sacrifice a Mountain rather than pay this spell’s mana cost.” —
  • “Trample over planeswalkers” — Thrasta, Tempest's Roar
  • “If an Insect card was milled this way,” — Grist, the Hunger Tide
  • “Protection from permanents with corruption counters on them” — Geyadrone Dihada
  • “choose a number between 1 and 5. Flip that many coins.” — Yusri, Fortune's Flame
  • “instead create one of each.” — Academy Manufactor

Here are some type lines from the set:

Finally, here are some of the mechanics in the set

(I replaced all the letters with X's.) Each listed keyword is a different non-evergreen keyword. No promise that it will appear in the set more than once, but some do appear in number. Spaces or punctuation didn't get X's. Note: the MH1 reprints don't count as they are not officially part of the MH2 (they are numbered separately).
