    ah mediocrity.

    no manlands, no fetches, no quests, no level up, no allies, no traps, no feeling of adventure. this is hardly zendikar. i don't want to hear some bull***** like this was known, or we got this instead. those were the things that really captured the feeling of zendikar, and they're gone. replaced with mediocrity and gimmicks.

    party is a mechanic that desperately wants more mana fixing and was designed as if there were fetches in the set initially. its underwhelming in its payoff, and requires too much to set up/maintain without disruption.

    kicker is underwhelming with very few cards actually being worth running yet the set was designed as if there was an abundance of good kicker cards so you end up with all these messy creatures that rely on something else that might not even be worth playing.

    there isn't really anything all that interesting, new, or exploratory at common or uncommon, even rare is a little lackluster. most of the cards just relying too much on the weak mechanics of the set or rehashing something we've already seen.

    landfall got some decent cards, but feels really underwhelming in what its doing too. most of those cards are just rehashes of what we've already done with landfall. nothing really new.

    there are some reprints that would've worked out great here, and helped manage their pricing a little, but they too were ignored because of course they were. better to jam them into another product that's just as mediocre so we have a means to push it.

    almost all the obvious value is again tied to mythic - be that monetary value or gameplay value. there's a few alright rares, but don't forget that given the way things are set up to push more packs all of those rares are going to decline in value as product is opened as people gamble on getting mythics, or just to get box topper expedition lands since thats the only way, or to get pulls from "the list"

    but hey you can get like, an expedition land if you buy a whole box, or sometimes a card from "the list" if you buy set boosters, which has a strong chance of just being a dud anyway as a huge portion of the list is crapola, thats great right? buy more product! consume! don't think about the scheme we've orchestrated to suck you dry. crack more packs!

    i just don't see any reason here to buy sealed product at all. buy the singles you want, there's only a few decent ones, and otherwise **** this entire product line. save some space in your bulk boxes.


    Yeah man ! I feel the same.
    Zendikar 1 is still its best version !

    I predict this is going to be a very popular mechanic.

    I think this card is already underestimated. 3 Mana 6 Lyalality & rapidly growin by a Scry 2, which can grant you huge advantage over the course of the game. You will from there on mostly draw good cards for as long as Jace is around.
    Idk. This +2 & his 0 remind me of Sensei's divining top.

    I like this a lot. The more work you put in, the better she becomes.
    Protects herself, provides attackers/stuff to equip to, fetches you a finisher & some renoval. All available right away instead a mostly useless ultimate.
    Now we desperately need more equipment supply

    I did see War of spark. There, only non mythic-walkers had less abilities though.
    Good point on Ikoria Vivien !
    She works for me though, cuz she has 3 active abilities.
    Nissa would only have 1 d:(
    I dont count -5, since many times it wont be available.

    Hopefuly she wont be like that

    His picture might be the very worst Planeswalker picture so far honestly

  • posted a message on [m21] new garruk spoiled
    He's good, but also so basic . . .
    -2 coulda easily have made 4/4 tokens for that high cost.
    +1 is good
