Really enjoying the tap-untap themes, and all the Clue tokens here. The Human Soldier and her shoulder Spirit are a cute touch and great use of partner with. If only Timin was actually a smaller creature...
I am very pleased with the tokens and Spiritcraft. I really hope we receive a token for Tatsumasa's Dragon Spirit someday soon.
I really wish the previewers would highlight art changes especially but also any rewording on cards. So many opportunities to fix mistakes (here's looking at you weird al I mean cordial vampire ) in these products - sometimes that is as much of a draw as the new cards.
Much prefer this to the vamps deck. Spirits are one of my favorite tribes, although it'll be hard to move beyond Brago Blink shenanigans to something else.
Dovin, Architect of Law probably would've been the more useful and thematic planeswalker, even though 6 mana for that is RIDICULOUS. OG Tamiyo would have been an even better choice, but there's no way they'd stick her in there.
The deck cries out for cost reduction elements since there are so many high MV cards in it.
I really don't know why they don't reprint Swords in a standard set. It would solve a lot of problems when it comes to problematic creatures.
Right now, we already have a problem where creatures aren’t judged to be good enough unless they have haste, flash (which is basically haste), hexproof (which is super rare), or a strong ability that works the turn it comes out because removal always costs less than what it’s destroying and trading a creature that nets you no benefit for 5 mana with a 2-mana removal spell means you were just hosed.
“Dies to removal” is still a very real thing and printing more efficient removal would only make that problem worse.
