Quote from Kryptnyt »Oh man big Squadron Hawk is pretty cool. Imagine having a big stack of 200 of them in casual. It's tricky in Constructed formats because with only one in your deck and 3 in your sb, you're not often going to draw it. It's not exactly a great rate for creatures either, if a permanent card made a 3/3 angel token for 4 it'd be solid but not amazing.
Cleric of Life's Bond makes me think that the set might be themed around an attempted revival of Emeria, Cosi, and Ula as ideas. If you have a bunch of people worship hard enough, do gods just exist? I think that was kind of a Theros thing but maybe it's something elsewhere as well. Like they were blindsided with the eldrazi being their gods (SIKE!) but people who spent their whole lives worshipping something might still want to cling.
