Avacyn Restored: new mechanisms

This article is going to be about following set – Avacyn Restored being set 3 of 3 in the Innistrad block. Avacyn Restored contains 242 cards. Prelease events(in paper Magic)starts 28-29 April 2012. I would like to introduce you a new mechanics in this sets.

Soulbond (When a creature with soulbond enters the battlefield, you may pair it with another unpaired creature you control. When another creature enters the battlefield under your control, if you control a creature with soulbond that isn't currently paired, you may pair it with the new creature. Abilities—usually abilities on the creature with soulbond—will refer to paired creatures. They remain paired for as long as you control both of them.)

Miracle [cost]: You may cast this card for its miracle cost if it's the first card you drew this turn. Only instants and sorceries.

Particularly, it is worth paying attention on Miracle mechanism. I glanced at uncompleted spoiler of Avaycn Restored and there are a few terrific cards. One of them is Temporal Mastery (5UU, Sorcery, Take an extra turn after this one. Exile Temporal Mastery. 1U Miracle). A new Time Walk. I bet this card will be banned very soon in Legacy format, where you can manipulate your library and hand very easily, thanks to Brainstorm / Jace, the Mind Sculptor. Temporal Mastery is also responsible for sell out of Personal Tutor card. Quess why. Simply because you search up for a sorcery card and you put it on the top of your library (in this case Temporal Mastery). In next turn you play Temporal Mastery for its Miracle cost. Price of Personal Tutor(paper version) raised from 13 USD to 40-50 USD, for virtual version it is much more difficult to evaluate the real price of this card. It was like 0,5 tix before Temporal Mastery saw the light of the day. Now this card is sold out everywhere. Did you get your own Personal Tutor’s on time?
