Quote from varoanthis is unkillable until you don't have a human. I can't think of any kill spell that hits through hexproof and indestructible.

Quote from charlequinHow far do we really have to go with that, though? Shroud isn't even a real drawback like echo or fading; it's a powerful ability with a drawback that's minor in comparison to its upside, and is often irrelevant. I understand the desire to keep players away from constantly having to navigate big, heavy drawbacks, but I don't think all-upside-all-the-time design is a good choice.
In general, I think shroud is a heck of a lot more applicable design-wise than hexproof and having the latter be the standard evergreen keyword (rather than saving it for a few unusual and unique cards) isn't really a great choice.
Quote from AelexanderFor all those complaining about Hexproof vs Shroud, you can probably count on one hand the number of currently playable creatures in any format that carry either ability. I think it goes Thrun, Ascetic, Jwar Sphinx and...?
Quote from Dromar the BanisherBad decision IMO, I loved having shroud on bigger creatures. Hexproof replacing it in that niche means they'll have to downgrade the power of some of those creatures we used to get (I doubt we'll see a Sphinx of Jwar Isle type creature with Hexproof for example).
Quote from ϕlosoϕcalCongrats, you just accelerated into a reanimator creature with nothing to reanimate. On turn 5 too, where you already took one or two hits of a sword wielding hawk.
Quote from UnfoldingdramaSince it seems to keep being used, I just wanted to point out that the plural for pieces of art is not, as far as common English usuage is concerned, 'arts'.
We should be saying "New Phyrexian Art".
If we use 'arts', then we appear to be talking about multiple disciplines, ie. painting, carving, pottery, etc.
Awesome images though, I am really looking forward to opening some of these in my boosters.
