    Drop one word from that card's flavor text and it's awesome instead of cheesy. What a shame. Great card though.

    Remember when Maro said Mythics would be cool card not necessarily designed for tournament tables? They finally print a set where that philosophy is adhered to, and the whole community just whines.

    Obviously pretty awesome in commander. I especially like it in my blue white lavinia deck, since it has lots of ETB effects and few graveyard recursion methods.

    I don't see this being a home run in constructed, but I could see a few fun FNM decks made with this.

    I personally like the fact this set has less absurdly busted cards. I can't tell if the same people who complain about these cards also complain that Emrakul and Smugglers Copter and Aetherworks Marvel were too good.

    I feel like want people want cards to be obviously overpowered during spoiler season, but once they actually play with those cards and see the effect on standard, they'll complain about those "great" cards to no end. I want to go back to magic where everything is a little less powerful and a little more fun for both sides of the table.

    This card isn't very good, but it doesn't really matter. Every rare card isn't designed for t2 standard play. This is fine for limited and could be decent in commander, at least in a budget commander deck since this card will be a bargain bin rare.

    I doubt it will see play in standard, but I don't care if 10 of the rares are basically junk. That always happens.

    First of all, I'm frantically refreshing this page to see the Chandra one and hopefully get the flavor text for Gideon and Nissa. These cards are exciting!

    Second, I am glad to see the Gatewatch lose even though they have kind of grown on me especially Chandra, (I'm a scatterbrain with ADHD, so Chandra's personality is similar to mine). I think heroes are more interesting when they aren't invincible, so it's good, but I do hope they can rally back at a future date.

    Finally, seems like a lot of people are writing Amonkhet's last rites a little early. No one else thinks it's possible that Bolas crushes the Gatewatch,but still loses? For example, Samut and Djeru team up and banish Bolas to wherever else or something after he's spent from smacking around the interlopers. The plane isn't necessarily doomed just cause the gatewatch lose.
