+1: Whenever one or more creatures you control deal combat damage to a player this turn, draw a card, then discard a card.
−2: Create a 2/2 blue Illusion creature token with "When this creature becomes the target of a spell, sacrifice it."

Quote from Rosy Dumplings »In retrospect, Wizards kind of HAD to make this change. If wizards wants to keep reprinting the gatewatch characters, the uniqueness rule would only get in the way.
This change frees them to include multiple versions of a single walker in close proximity (as we are abandoning proper "blocks") and removes some of the pressure to constantly introduce new planeswalkers (especially as the "legendary creature to planeswalker" formula won't work as well without blocks).
Quote from Kryptnyt »It looks as though we're experiencing a rules and templating change?
