Innistrad Spoilers - Day and Night in Innistrad

Day and Night in Innistrad

Innistrad spoilers never cease to amaze us. Whether true or not. In the case of two cards that we show here, is not known how far their content is true, but they are there nonetheless and are quite intriguing.

First of all,  let's be fair and cite our sources. The two images, it seems, first appeared on a Spanish website,, and from then on, in Facebook accounts and other Magic sites.

Now, to the images: the first is  "Mayor of Avabruck."

And his "card" version:

(Day) Mayor of Avabruck - 1G
Creature - Human Advisor Werewolf (Rare)
Unknown text,  3/3

The second is "Howlpack Alpha", and seems to be a token type.

(Night) Howlpack Alpha
Creature - Werewolf (Rare)
Other Werewolf and Wolf creatures you control get +1/+1.
At the beginning of your upkeep, put a 2/2 green Wolf creature token onto the battlefield.
At the beginning of each upkeep, if a player cast at least two spells during the previous turn, sacrifice Howlpack Alpha.

Legitimate or not (and in my opinion, they seem legitimate enough), it is interesting to note the symbols on the top left of the cards. They are symbols of "Day" and "Night". Apparently this is a fundamental mechanic in Innistrad, and is almost obvious that Howlpack Alpha is the "Night" version of Mayor of Avabruck. It is unclear how this mechanism will be implemented, but is sure to be something innovative and exciting, and this is becoming a trend with everything related to Innistrad.
