In KLD, absolutely.Quote from necrogenesis »
My best guess is that Precise Strike fits the mood of Kaladesh a little better than Kindled Fury does. The plane is full of relatively happy engineers, not brooding warriors full of rage. In a fight, the scientists are going to be executing calculated attacks rather than unleashing some pent up inner angst.
Like I said, just my best guess.
In AER, however..
The consulate went through and confiscated many inventions and detained their inventors for ""safety reasons"". It then became apparent that Tezzeret was behind it for his own gains, which made most of the people who figured it out furious. When Pia Nalaar failed to stoke the flames of the rebellion, she enlisted her daughter's help. Chandra was able to remind them of what they lost, and she kindled their anger into an uprising. She "Kindled their Fury" (ba-dun tshh?)
They can make a lot of cards fit with work.
Some are much more forced then others.
I find this example to be fully acceptable.
Coral Eel.. not so much. It just fails the flavor test.
With no more core sets, the more generic cards start flowing into the block expansion sets. Wetland Sambar will be rotating out long before Kaladesh block, so Curio Vendor was created to replace it, and the used name space is almost nonexistant.
Again, Precise Strike IS name space that could be better suited, but there's still so much left to explore it's ridiculous. Who knows how many thousands of burn cards or fiery cards we have thus far, and we still don't even have a plain old "Scorch" spell yet. Add in the ever possible Name-ian Scorch variants, etc, and there's no shortage of spell names as we traverse the multiverse.
