right now these are the promocards on OCTGN that have a big chance being in that set:

- Acid blast
- sunfire burst
- Asto Vidaty, Angel Slayer
- Bloodwave Greatbow
- Death's head scorpion
- Dragonclaw wolverine
- Dwarf Krieghammer
- Eligor Larington
- Fire elemental
- Gerard Matranga (that doesn't fit any current mage)
- Joseph Trublood, High cleric
- Kumanjaran leopard
- Lightning beetle
- magma gollem
- mending angel
- mountain ram
- Pharaoh's cheetah?
- temple high guard
- unstable fire imp
- victorian griffin
- altar of peace
- (warlord only  ::) )Ballista
- wall of poison Gas
- bind spirit
- blur
- circle of light
- critical strike
-  debilitate
- life link
- mana vampirism
- reinforce
- Ankh of Asyra
- Chitin armor
- Elfric's life ring
- Gloves of skill
- Heart of gravikor

All in all 36 new cards. let's say 90% of them will be in the set --> 32 cards. Comparing this to other sets it will contain 20-25 completely new cards.

When in doubt kill it with fire? I never doubt and crush them right away.

Of those, the ones I'd really like to see would be any/all of:

- Sunfire Burst (unless in PvS)
- Asto Vidaty, Angel Slayer
- Bloodwave Greatbow
- Death's Head Scorpion
- Dragonclaw Wolverine
- Dwarf Krieghammer
- Fire Elemental
- Kumanjaran Leopard
- Lightning Beetle
- Magma Golem
- Mending Angel (unless in PvS)
- Mountain Ram
- Pharaoh's Cheetah
- Temple High Guard (unless in PvS)
- Unstable Fire Imp
- Victorian Griffin (unless in PvS)
- Altar of Peace (unless in PvS)
- Ballista (presumably toned down a little)
- Wall of Poison Gas **
- Bind Spirit (unless in PvS)
- Circle of Light (unless in PvS)
- Critical Strike (unless in PvS)
- Debilitate
- Life Link
- Mana Vampirism
- Reinforce
- Chitin Armor **
- Elfric's Life Ring (unless in PvS)
- Gloves of Skill **
- Heart of Gravikor
- Leviathan Scale Armor (unless in PvS)
 
Other notables:
- Mordok's Tome
- Screaming Zombie
- Ring of Healing (unless in PvS)
- Vorpal Blade (unless in PvS)
- Spiked Buckler (unless in PvS)
- Spiked Armor (unless in PvS)
- Summoning Circle (unless in PvS)
- Eeker (can't really imagine him in any other expansion; maybe something in Academy?)
- Hidden Tunnels **
- Messenger of Bim-Shallah ** (unless in PvS)


Wasn't Acid Blast just an early (overpowered) version of Acid Ball?

I imagine that Joseph Trublood, Eligor Larington and Gerard Matranga will appear in expansions that make sense thematically.  And Eeker might fit in with those scallywags...

As for Blur and Ankh of Asyra, I'm guessing Blur will come with the male Forcemaster, and the Ankh might come with an Egyptian-themed expansion if one were ever made (perhaps with a female mummy-oriented Necromancer?).

** -> very high on my wish list.

Keep in mind that cards need to have been released for an appropriate amount of time first. This depends on the card. Just something to remember.

What's appropriate amount of time? Galador was released few months after appearing in OP1. Ballista appeared in the same year as support for Dice Tower and still isn't released.

After the appropriate amount of time then we can start looking at them when we add promo cards to sets. It doesn't guarantee that they'll be printed at the first opportunity. That said, I try to get as many promos into sets as I can.

I elieve it was mentioned that about half of the promo tome (+/-54 cards) would consist of previously released promos and the other half would be new stuff. Unthemed.

I'm looking forward to the tome of surprises!!

If memory serves, it's going to be weighted a bit more towards the promo side.

Still, bring it on!
