Today Wizards started revealing what the Masterpiece Series cards from Amonkhet will be called. Invocations look like a collection of powerful spells and creatures from Commander staples like Consecrated Sphinx to Constructed all-stars like Cryptic Command. We will be posting here on our news feed as more cards get spoiled.
