Helvault Contents Spoiled

The following pics are coming from @JffrsnByPrxy on Twitter. It looks like someone has pre-maturely cracked one of the Helvaults prior to the pre-release this weekend and at least 3 of the items inside have been spoiled:


  1. Over-Sized Angels
  2. Double-Faced Angel & Demon Tokens
  3. Avacyn Restored Spin-Down Life Counters

Of the over-sized angels, Sigarda, Host of Herons is shown and I think it's safe to assume that copies of Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Bruna, Light of Alabaster are also inside the Helvault. All three of these ladies are already being targeted by all of the Commander/EDH players around the world and over-sized promos of them makes sense. I'm not much of a Commander player myself, but I still think it's kind of cool. If I did play Commander, I'd definitely be playing with one of the over-sized versions.

I like the angel/demon double-faced tokens, but I won't be looking to get any myself. I already have all my tokens in obnoxiously orange opaque sleeves (just so they don't get accidentally shuffled into any decks) and opaque sleeves don't really play well with double-faced cards. And I kind of have the same "meh" reaction to the spin-down life counters. I think there are people out there who love this stuff and will be happy to collect these, but if I were to use 20 sided dice to track life, I'd rather use some jumbo dice.

So far so good, but I hope there are still secrets to be had from inside the Helvault.
