"Wall of Roots trades with Doran. Doran doesn't like Wall of Roots. You would think he might, as they are both trees. But Doran is a sociopathic tree. He and other trees don't get along – hell, he doesn't even get along with himself. Have you seen what happens when you cast two Dorans? Let me tell you, it isn't pretty." -Uri Peleg
Yes, they do playtest. I can't deny the fact that they do. But as soon as it comes to the one mythic that makes the set a sell0r (jace, primeval, batterskull), the balace-team can suck hasbros marketing, money-horny dick.

by 'you have hexproof' does it mean the player can't be targeted at all? So, no lightning bolt, no geth's verdict etc or am i reading this wrong?
Correct. Anything that says 'target player' or 'target opponent.' Much like the white Leyline.
Since this is comparable to the white leyline in terms of effect, and easier to cast in terms of colored mana cost, I would expect this to show up in the sideboard when the meta includes Pyromancer, RDW and Mill.
It is slightly more vulnerable in the current standard, but easier to include. We'll see it around, occasionally.
Parralel Lives seems like the card to get for me at the pre-release. I run 5-colour splicers (competative is over-rated and etched monstrosity is awesome). I need this in my deck.
My deck has mimic vat. It was problematic before when I got a splicer under it.
It now reads:
3,:symtap:: Put two ~ splicer tokens with haste into play, exile at beginning of end step.
And splicers now read:
When ~ (please be maul) splicer enters the battlefield put two (pls four) 3/3 colourless golem artefact creatures into play.
Live the dream maul splicer, live the dream.
It was verging on nightmarish before. Its hilarious now. I need multiple copies, four isnt enough, how can I get more? I need more spurious and annoying chump blockers with hordes of hanger-ons.
zombies just got twice as fun. Parallel Lives means that cemetery reaper makes 2 moan makes 4 grave titan makes 4 Army of the Damned makes 26 and if you flashback it makes 52 all this + Endless Ranks of the Dead should be fun and because it is BG you get lands out faster the zombies in this set will make you scream OMG WE'RE SURROUNDED
The orb is pretty lulzy, and the return of scarecrow(s) is welcome. Weaker doubling season seems pretty nice, its not like they could just reprint with planeswalkers everywhere. And I hope that's the last of the weird equipment. I don't mind, but enough is enough.
