I dislike the curse art. My reasoning is that it looks exactly like the original art just a close up at a different angle. I would have liked to have maybe seen the mage they speak of, would have been cool to have both versions in the deck.
I assume he is pointing to the fact that Wizards seems to make promos of the worst cards all the time. And then when they do make good promos, like Cultivate, they seem to wait until the card rotates out of standard to give it.
Simple truth everyone knows: Wizards' promo department is a bunch of ******** (sorry, forgot I wasn't on twitter at the moment) idiot monkeys.
Warning for inappropriate language.
Since this keeps getting reported, I'm just going to leave a note here that a second infraction was indeed given for editing this post following the first one, but no further note was left. -viper
I never understood why they wouldn't make promo cards of the best cards in the set.
It could be that Gateway promos are designed to be given out to newish players to get them to come back. They actually look better than Path to Exile to players with no concept of tournament power level. It's an alternate win card and a creature that gets bigger and bigger.
