    This really has been an exhausting year.

    By every metric, even MTG.

    Cool idea but not feeling this franchise so it's a pass for me.

    I would like a world themed around the source material HP is derived from, such as a school of wizards, English themed, with various "houses" or "dorms" etc. Although frankly this is a concept that seems more appropriate for a region of a world (such as Minamo on Kamigawa) that it is to carry an entire plane. I imagine the school is a prominent location of the plane at large, but not the whole world itself.

    I'd rather not have literal HP cards like Ikoria did with Godzilla. Doesn't bother me much if they do it, but I'm not really feeling the franchise crossovers.

    Can't let you catch breath, spoil, spoil, spoil, consume, consume, consume!!!!!! Sweat
    Why not? Zendikar didn't do it for me. Hell, nothing has since Theros. So I say bring it.

    I wish we could trade Party for Quests, Traps, Fetchland reprints in standard and more Landfall.

    Like come on.

    There are quite a few cards I want, but overall, there is room for improvement on power level and mechanical focus. The borders on those expeditions don't even look like MTG cards.

    1st Zendikar block - ROE released. Focus on Eldrazi/Allies. Players: We prefer Landfall and adventure world.

    BFZ - Focus on Eldrazi/Allies. Players: Where are Traps/Expeditions/Lands/Landfall? We prefer Landfall and adventure world.

    ZNR - Focus on Party. Players: Where are Traps/Expeditions/Lands/Landfall? We prefer Landfall and adventure world.

    Next return to Zendikar: Focus on more creature/tribal. Players: Where are Traps/Expeditions/Lands/Landfall? We prefer Landfall and adventure world.

    The art, theme and general approach this time were good though. Far better. I'd trade Party for Quests, Traps and Expedition enchantments but the set's tone is at least in the right place, with a healed world with traces of former Eldrazi.

    Charix sounds like a red elemental card, how is it a blue crab? What were they smoking when they named him...


    Actually, they used the word Cancrix a couple times recently to refer to a crab in mtg, stemming from the ancient greek word for crab.
    This is exactly what I thought when I saw the name.

    I miss Lorthos. Was kinda hoping to see some Lorthos spawn cards or something here to suggest his babies will carry on the legacy of being a bad ass octo-dad.

    I wish it had better protection. I'm tired of poor man's hexproof. It's a legendary creature, just put it on there. It's not like it's going to break the meta.

    I would have accepted the same ability, but equal to its power or the number of islands you have.
    That’s a pretty unique version of it. Thematic too. The more you’re on his turf, the more difficult to battle.

    I know why they're doing it, and I know many will disapprove of what I am going to say, but I really wish they would reprint the cards in the new border instead of their original, outdated border. I prefer the game to have updated consistency in appearance.

    Cards like Scroll Rack and Training Grounds need legit accessible reprints...

    FINALLY

    I LOVE IT!

    Damn the colors and art on the bundle promo are amazing, I am absolutely playing that! How can I get that one? Just buy a bundle?

    We all know which of my decks this card is slotting into. I love how unique this is. My sea monster deck is turning into a deck of some wonky fun designs that highlight just how alien sea monsters can be which is amazing.

    Agree it should have just had straight up Hexproof as a legendary. But it's so neat that this is 4 mana to bring the curve down on that deck a bit while also having a meaningful way of conveying its size and ferocity.

    0/17 is such an amusing set of stats with that effect. I love its creature type and art Grin Hits multiple marine creatures types too. Overall a great card I am quite pleased.

    FIGURES IT WOULD BE THE LAST ONE IN THE SET THEY'D SPOIL. It's the one I waited for most alongside Jace. Not bad, not bad.

    My favorite sea monsters are from Theros and Zendikar Grin
