    decent, i guess. most of the time its going to be 2 drop removal

    nothing exciting here at all. limited fodder at best. art isn't even that great either. like much of this set so far they're just not interesting. yawn.

    oh hooray, another creature that does that generic and boring thing that white does rather than actually explore the color... i guess new players will fawn over it like they do all life gain cards? not impressed.

    i feel like this is one that everyone is going to be hyped for, brew around, try to make work... and then throw in a box for all eternity

    draw 4 for 2uu is pretty solid at instant speed.

    not solid enough for it to make the cut anywhere mind you, because these types of things never actually work out in practice, but its still solid enough to be a decent inclusion.

    cool i guess, but these cards fail to gain traction every single time they're printed.

    i'll reserve real judgement for after the release of the rest of the set, but for now food anything is underwhelming and i suspect like many mechanics in this vein before them they wont' be developed and explored until later sets

    neat, i guess. its hard to be excited about a card that went many years without a reprint... and is now jammed into every set instead of making something new or reprinting something else.

    i like her a lot and feel like a deck around her would be a lot of fun. maybe not the most competitive if you go the edh route, but definitely fun. she combos well with ednrek sahr and tombstone stairwell, and she'd be the wincon for a lot of combos right in the command zone, no digging for blood artist necessary

    pretty solid, i expect this'll probably be the strongest of these types of cards

    some day we'll all move past the idea that there needs to be cycles of lands, especially rare lands, in every single set... that'll be a good day.

    this guy really rankles my ass.

    but in all seriousness he's a flavor homerun too. the shenanigans he can pull in edh just make him obnoxious. it'll be great.

    this card...

    its not for me. i'm not sure who its for, but its definitely not for me.

    its a 3 drop mana rock that taps for blue. neat, but thats not enough to justify the cost. okay...
    so i can put counters on it for 2u? but to get to the 12 needed for it to go off i need to dump 36 mana into it... or wait 12 turns. you could use excess mana to dump counters onto it, thats cool i guess... but it also exiles itself. if you've gone infinite you're usually winning already and don't need to dump mana into this. its also in a color that has access to this type of effect in abundance. oh, and it exiles itself so you can't even recur it. even if you have enough excess mana to dump 2 counters on it (6 mana for those counting) that will still take what, 4 turns to go off? its just so slow. sure you can build a deck to dump counters onto it... but then you're building your deck to try and turn something that's hot garbage into being barely playable.

    bad rare thats hiding behind word soup to try and seem good is really just bad.

    flavor home run at least.
