    I am starting to guess they put a lot of implied tribal Commander cards into this set. Maybe some 2017 leftovers?
    To me, this set feels like a hard push for the new "standard plus" format.


    same, some really intense pushes for things you'd want in a new extended type format

    I thought all the punisher cards had been spoiled already? at least at uncommon, it'll be readily available.

    that art on the aura is a right-away contender for the worst of the last... 26 years.


    worse than its previous printing with the same artwork?? Rolleyes

    starting at an arbitrary point after Khans of Tarkir, there seem to be a fair number of allied duals that enter untapped or have upsides, and enemy duals that enter tapped or have downsides. Shocks aside, of course.

    At the risk of sounding a bit tinfoil-hat-y, could this be an intentional design choice for a new format?

    This makes me desperately, desperately hope that the WBG legend is a Knight. Even if it isn't tribal focussed, just the typeline. Please.

    As happy as I am with the card, Kaya as a character seems to be forced almost as if they’re trying to make her a main protagonist post WAR.


    Oath of Kaya didn't clue you into that?
    How is Kaya in ANY way different from the other silly, designed-by-committee protagonists they've crammed into the Jacetice League... ahem... Magic Avengers... ahem... Gatewatch? Every. Last. One of them is New Coke.

    (Except Ajani.)


    There's a pretty glaring différance here, let's be honest.

    She has a neat character design and her ongoing plot so far at least lends itself to maybe developing flaws and hangups. This is a big step compared to previous characters, who conform to archetypes and don't really have personalities at all. Ixalan stories were better than the norm for the same reason. That's all we can really hope for, regardless of the character's color, mana or otherwise.

    Nah, infinite power with grand architect but no guaranteed way to abuse and win with this on the spot. Imo pilipala is still better as a win con with the architect.
    Third card of the combo is Thud or Fling.


    Fourth card is Cerulean Wisps or something to make it blue for Grand Architect. Pretty meh overall.

    EDIT: The combo, not the card itself. Gehrman aesthetic goes well in the Innistrad+ cube I am planning.
