FNM promos have been on a roll for some time now. Rift Bolt went right into my Legacy burn deck, Gatekeeper is going in my standard deck, Nacatl is a super playable and fun card, and Chalice is a superstar in standard lately.
Good job, Wizards.

I wish my 4/4s with haste and first strike that acted as Goblin Warchiefs were better and didn't die to instants and overshadowed all other 4 drops in the format. And that they had evasion too, and some way to dodge wrath effects.
Take your monoblack deck, then set aside 14 swamps. Add 4 Creeping Tar Pits, 4 Darkslick Shores, 4 Drowned Catacombs, and 2 Jwar isle Refuge and add 4 Jace, the Mindsculptors. Your monoblack deck is instantly better. Better yet, drop those refuges, throw in some islands and some mana leaks, and lo and behold, you're now playing a real deck. Congratulations. Welcome to the world of competitive M:TG.
For those who don't follow his work, Steve Argyle (the artist for the original) had this version as an initial submission. I personally prefer it to the one the saw print.
(He also has the version for when the cup made colored mana; the original design file of Everflowing Chalice was an artifact with "T: Add two mana of any color to your mana pool. Spend this mana only on kicker costs." That, and a comedic interpretation featuring everyone's favorite dragon walker, are at his web page)
