    And I thought white was the color that cared about enchantments. Could be good in limited depending on the number of cheap enchantments and an okay late pick in draft.

    Here is the schedule of when they’ll be available for purchase, as well as the names of each:

    Secret Lair Bundle (all seven drops) - 12/2, 9am PT, $199.99
    Bitterblossom Dreams - 12/3, 9am PT
    Eldraine Wonderland - 12/4, 9am PT
    Restless in Peace - 12/5, 9am PT
    Seeing Visions - 12/6, 9am PT
    <explosion sounds> - 12/7, 9am PT
    Kaleidoscope Killers - 12/8, 9am PT
    OMG KITTIES! - 12/9, 9am PT, $39.99

    Drops will contain between three and seven predetermined cards and tokens in a customized collector box, costing either $29.99 or $39.99 depending on the drop – some of which will use premium foil cards as well. A bundle will also be available for $199.99 that guarantees you all seven drops.

    Additionally, ordering a drop will get you codes for digital goodies in MTG Arena and Magic Online. You’ll get the cards themselves in Magic Online, but Heggen explained that since most of the cards in this series don’t exist in Arena, you’ll instead get sleeves as “expressions of the drop’s theme.”

    As for what the other drops in that list will include, Wizards of the Coast said it will be showing off more them today on its official Twitter account, so you can keep your eyes peeled there for further reveals.

    I think people would be more excited if the product had some high dollar reprints such as Masterpieces/Inventions/Alternate Art Planeswalkers even if the chance of pulling one was very small. People were excited about Zendikar Treasures and the Masterpieces, and I would think that they would be eager to get another crack at something high dollar but very rare. Also, I think they should have released the entire set list Friday so that people could actually see if they wanted to buy/draft this set.

    Not every exciting, which seems to be an ongoing theme for White cards in Eldraine, but Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree was the real deal in Ravnica. Yes, we don't have Glare of Subdual but this taps for W. Will still see play.

    I'm not sure that it will see play. Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree had support like Glare of Subdual and convoke. It was also an uncommon. This is a rare in an unexciting color for the set. There are lots of things better than 1/1s for 5 and white is usually looking for fast attacks not reactive 5 mana sinks. The format would really have to be very slow and have a human matters theme to make this work. Otherwise, knights, flyers and green big creatures will overrun the 1/1 human.

    At least it is a 3/3 for 3 and a relevant type. Overall, white seems weak in limited. There are still a number of cards to go, but it doesn't seem like there are a lot of targets outside of knights. I guess you can get Trapped in the Tower and hope your opponent doesn't have a lot of flyers.

    This seems weak compared to the other rare lands. Blue gets scry 2 for the same cost. If the token were a knight or a soldier, it would be better. As it is, you get a 1/1 human for 5 mana. It goes with the theme of the set, but I do not see much synergy yet. Worthy knight seems like a better card than this. Overall, I would say that white seems like a weak color in this set which is disappointing following how weak it was for limited in M20.
