    The whole experience was a mess. I guess that's not much different from past occurrences; however, this was a bit product with a huge shift in terms of distribution.

    Maybe they should have let Amazon fill the orders, after all what's the point of ceasing distribution to LGS and letting Amazon do it if Hasbro can't handle a mere spike in traffic?

    Every system inside Hasbro website and customer service were overwhelmed. They clearly didn't put any effort in this. They should have expected that as they barely can handle SDCC orders.


    I completely agree. Is WotC that out of touch that they didn't see this product being the type to sell out very quickly? A lot of people who believed that they had successfully ordered the product found out that they didn't actually get it, even though their bank account was charged (the charges are later reversed). I had to order the product three times before it finally went through, even though I got a confirmation order the second time through.

    It's no longer 2001, and Wizards/Hasbro can't act like they have any justification for these type of website problems, even without the launching of the Mythic edition. There is no excuse for the massive technical problems the site experienced today. They'd better be prepared for the Ravnica Allegiance Mythic Edition. After today, there's no saying that the traffic levels were unexpected.

    I went to the website to try to see what this "exclusives" page was, and when I just tried to go to the main page, I got this message:

    So yeah, they should really get their website up to snuff before making it the exclusive place to buy such a heavily-hyped product.

    The walkers themselves are typically worth something, so it's not throwing away money as much as most of the intro packs were back in the day.

    Honestly, I don't mind paying $15 for one of these if the walker is at least playable in EDH (e.g. Nissa, Nature's Artisan, Tezzeret, Master of Metal, etc), and to be honest, I run one Nissa, Nature's Artisan in my Standard deck because BR/mono-R aggro is so prevalent (your opponent is tripping over themselves to get rid of Nissa when you start +3'ing every turn). But it seems like Wizards has been toning down the power level of these walkers even more in recent sets, so I don't know if it's really worth picking these up anymore.

    Does she really lift the sorcery-speed restriction? I assumed not.


    I would assume that you are correct, and that timing restrictions still apply to sorceries you cast. I guess we'll have to wait for the official ruling on this.

    Oh look, a better 4-drop than Vraska. That didn't take long.

    The vamp is a Pack 1, Pick 1 in limited. It's simply bonkers.
    I'm not sure it is. You have to be pretty committed to Dimir before this card becomes attractive. Unless I am grossly underestimating the Limited fixing (I don't think I am) quad colored mana symbols is a real cost here.

    Oh, it is certainly bonkers. Flying is hard to deal with in Limited. Hexproof is VERY hard to deal with in Limited. Together? The thing is going to either end games or stall them out long enough to give you the advantage. It's a great card. And the mana cost shouldn't scare anyone away.

    Sultai with Hatching Plans here we go!

    But yeah, it's nice... not too sure I like the restriction on her -3, but heh... she can kill Ixalan Jace.


    I guess Induced Amnesia is the way to go in Standard?

    The card is underwhelming. The +2 is really bad/do nothing on an empty board

    Your board is never empty, you can sac lands.


    Unless I'm flooding out, I would be hard-pressed to sac a land to her ability. Vraska requires a build-around deck to be playable.

    The card is underwhelming. The +2 is really bad/do nothing on an empty board. The -3 played it way too safe; they could have made it "CMC 4 or less" without making the card too strong.
    Ultimate is good, but they're making all of Vraska's ultimates slight variations on one another.

    Aaaand the Tweet was deleted.

    Art is superb, continuing the trend of Godless Shrine artwork being consistently good.

    I used to run this along with Pillar of Light and Lightning Strike, per my brother's suggestion. According to his research, during Theros-Khans Standard, there wasn't a single creature that trio couldn't deal with.


    Of course, that was before the days of Carnage Tyrant.

    Finally, a card that can turn Nicol Bolas's ETB ability into a potential drawback for the caster.

    The fact that Chromatic Lantern will be in standard will make it easier for everyone to run this card without having to dedicate land slots to cast it. And with all the mana fixing we will probably have I'd expect to see this in mostly every deck that can or would run it.

    'buster

    yeah i dont see this happening in standard at all.

    I agree, Chromatic Lantern saw virtually no play when it was last in Standard. Maybe some rogue decks will try it out, but I doubt any deck running it would be particularly competitive. It's a Commander staple first and foremost.

    This has some great synergies with History of Benalia. You can swing with the Knight tokens, and still convoke with them since they have vigilance.

    It just sucks that Goblin Chainwhirler is a thing.


    It won't be as much after rotation. Also, INSTANT SPEED is incredibly relevant to getting around Chainwhirler. You cast this end of opponent's turn, then keep mana up for a buff to protect your tokens the next turn.
