Really like how they honored the original artwork by Terese Nielsen, well done Deruchenko Alexander If I'm pronouncing that correctly!
Seconded! And I sure didn't hear you mispronounce it. (Although it always confuses me to see "Deruchenko" first, and "Alexander" second instead of the other way around. Kinda looks to me like "Miller Bob" or something. '^^)
I like the wolf concept art better for obvious reasons. Who likes hyenas?
I like hyenas more than wolves and I like the first version most, though the other one looks great, too (hope the Beaver doesn't read this...). Not trying to be contrarian, just my actual opinion/personal aesthetic preferences (...PAP..?). Hey, maybe we could get were-yenas at some point?
The problem with defining this format by what is "fun" is that everyone seems to define fun as what they don't lose to. If you keep losing to easily answered cards, that means you should improve your deck. If you don't want to improve your deck, then you should come to peace with the idea that you are going to lose because you chose to not interact with better strategies.
I dont know. 4 mana hurts more than people realize in edh. I dont think this thing is playable in any other format. Its eternalize coat is dramatically over priced too though im sure trostani players will consider it. Even there its probably easier to just turn ewit into a token instead.
