Anybody else annoyed at the energy icons? I mean, they're kind of pain in the ass to count when they're all bunched up in a line. Why not got with "pay eight energy" and just leave off the who symbol thing? They're not saving card space when it takes a whole line to show the symbols anyway.
They got all the shiny symbols, and they push whatever idea they have.
Its a bad idea and its blatanly obvisious to anyone that anything like 5+ energy counter symbols is a pain for the eye.
However, it might just be another "lesson" they have to learn, Maro probably already wrote his article about that for Kaladesh.
An "un-card" for the energy symbol overkill would be one that has so many energy counters (literally over 9000) that you cannot read anything on the card at all.
To answer the eyesore complaint:
The PAX panel's general answer was: to make it stand out so that you didn't simply pass on the card particularly if you were going to do the Energy Deck in Draft/Sealed. They figured it wasn't ideal, but - and this is me talking now - the insinuation here that it's some kind of 'vendetta' and/or to push Energy is patently absurd. It's like saying that they shouldn't use the Oxford Comma in rules text because it's superfluous.
There's also this response RE: words/numbers versus symbols, from Blogatog:
organizedhysteria asked: Cards with big energy costs tough to read. I find that counting objects like that becomes annoying when it's more than three or so. Is part of the visual appeal that you see the symbol a lot of times? Was using numbers ever considered?
Numbers were tried. Interestingly, playtests showed that having more symbols made it easier to note when things required more energy. I admit that separating larger numbers is trickier.
I cant wait to use glammerdye on that whale.. so I can say, "The whale! He be white now!"
hehe futurama, so silly
I absolutely love all three of these. Magic needs more Sky Whales. When is return to Kaladesh coming? lol

The true mind can weather all the lies and illusions without being lost. The true heart can tough the poison of hatred without being harmed. Since beginning-less time, darkness thrives in the void but always yields to purifying light.
I invision a future where one is not mighty when he can silence a crowd with brutality,
but when he leaves them speechless with wisdom.
Aethersquall Leviathan might be the only good piece of news today. It's certainly my favorite spoiler, at least, much better than Bad Whirler Rogue, Bad Jace's Ingenuity, and limited fodder. It seems like it could be a fun card in my Vela EDH.
