    Oh yes, Ral and Tomik!

    Pavios ans Thanasis are my favorite. I hope we see them on cards someday. Damn, with Arixmethes and Callaphe accomplished, I needed a new goal. Muahahahha

    I wish Kynaios ans Tiro has individual cards with partner too. Preferably not group hug either.

    I don’t think it’s sexist to find this product uninteresting or annoying. But it is what it is tbh I think the general attitude some woke movements have is off putting. Some have the idea of advancing not just for the benefit of a marginalized group, but also at the expense of the other as well. Yes, that is a terrible mentality.

    I wouldn’t be the slightest bit surprised - or upset - if these continued into June. What are the obvious Pride candidates beyond Alesha? Does Ashiok qualify as an ally?
    I was considering that actually. Alesha, Kynaios ans Tiro, Chandra/Nissa (too soon?) idk. I don’t mind Ashiok. Seems appropriate. Sadly we don’t have Pavios, Thanasis, Hal or Alena as cards for our missing gay couples.

    Nice art. Only female character I care for is Thassa and I got that one. Glad to skip this drop. I’m sure there will be many, many more regardless.

    I want men tbh. Would love some more Cynthia Shepherd art. A Jace Secret Lair would be amazing. But everyone will expect JTMS which is a bit lame. I suppose that would be a signature spell book though if it were Jace on typical blue spells again. Not that I would mind.

    Azorius for Timeless Wisdom would be ideal. I don’t think we’ve ever had a commander deck that is only UW. Or a cycle of ally colors in General? I do suspect it may be Jeskai though which isn’t as fun for me. I’d like some more UW legends

    Well the 1 set thing "rushes" everything.

    Instead of some kind of cohesive story you jump around in planes and do random stuff.

    Sets should have at least 2 , to flesh the entire theme out more and not skip halve of it.

    Theros is the best example of this rush. Instead of all the gods we simply cant put them all in the single set, just 2 titans as we dont have enough room.
    And halve the temple lands had to be outsourced too ...

    This just feels bad and so rushed, that the sets cant even breath, you already get the next set around the corner.

    ----

    Massive product fatigue and thats not a good thing (its like having christmas every day, that gets old quickly).
    I agree. A two set model with occasional single sets works better. Eldraine as one set was good. Theros as two sets would have worked better. Zendikar May or may not be better as a single set since there isn’t a substantial story like the Eldrazi arc. Although I would love two sets on Zendikar personally.

    I just knew I was going to hate this entire plane

    Why, because it's not Theros?

    'buster

    In part. But I also don’t like that it appears to be a plane of essentially Simic creations. I prefer more recognizable creatures. I also can’t stand Viven Reid. Let alone my harsher analysis of sets that follow Theros.

    It’s a good thing though. Not every set is for everyone and I’m looking forward to Zendikar and Commander products instead. So it’s not wallet fatigue for me.

    Timeless Wisdom sounds intriguing to me

    Sounds like a set I’d only buy singles from, since I’d only want specific things. Assuming the blue themes are of interest to me. I’d love sea monsters but doubt it. I could see Merfolk and reprints for them being something. I prefer being able to choose the color.

    I’m not really feeling this so far but we will see

    My boxes arrived today in the mail. The Planeswalkers are still included, though it appears to be the old assortment still. This was my pull.


    Nice those look good

    Unfortunately for me I got a long wait the estimate is like all the way to April
    Why is that? I’m wondering how people can predict when their boxes may arrive? I didn’t receive any confirmation except that the order was placed

    Oh wow, that was fast. Congratulations! The cards look great. Here’s to hoping I pull Jace in mine. He’s the stained glass planeswalker I want most from these

    After the backlash of The WAR I’m actually stunned they proceeded with this one instead of continuing to Eldraine. I’m not sure if Eldraine has enough material since it’s our first visit to a new plane, but definitely Theros on a second visit especially considering the first was three sets. Really looking forward to Theros

    It’s going to be Dark Crystal plane with creatures that have no true earth counterpart IMO


    radiation from crystals mutating creatures etc
