    When judging the story, you also have to consider the professional authors that were brought in again later on had to deal with a lot of the baggage from previous block/set story lines. Even a professional can only do so much to completely turn a story around, especially when its not the main focus of the product. The end of the "Bolas storyline" may not be the most satisfying, but imo there were some clear improvements and I'd rather have it end here and be a little disappointed than follow it for another three years or so and have a "proper finale" (that may not turn out to be as great as anticipated anyway).

    The cell padding for the rules text box could have been larger. Not enough room between text and border!

    Worship, Blackblade Reforged, Martyr's Bond and RIP are great choices with fitting and kickass art. The rest of the cards feel a bit more generic to me as they're all "Gideon with his weapon at the time in an action pose", but they're fine as well.

    Quote from Stoogeslap »
    OK... Deliver Unto Evil... I don't care what the card does. THE ABSOLUTE best art I have seen in a very, Very, VERY, VERY, VERY long time. Seb McKinnon is now my favorite artist right next to Phil Foglio. This card could have said "Each time you pick your nose you lose 11 & 1/2 life and I would have loved it.


    The style is cool, but I'm actually having problem to appreciate this one because of how badly are the proportions and perspectives between bolas head and body, it just feel ugly to me. (compare this with the Dragon-god art and you see how the head is too big, the neck is too long and other issues that makes it aesthetically unpleasant).

    Contrary to popular belief, accurate proportions are not the be-all and end-all in illustration. Ever heard of stylization? The "issues" you listed aren't bugs, they are features.

    Cool card mechanics-wise, but creative-wise I wish the creature depicted could be something else than generic blue zombie #3422.

    Also Domris death being pictured on two separate cards makes me kind of worried that there's not going go be that much other losses.
