Personally I'm not a big fan of magic cards that don't really look like magic cards, but they are nice for those that like them.
But screwing up the general formatting really bothers me - especially that preordain messing with the mana cost. I guess the drop on the forehead is supposed to display the cost, but it absolutely doesn't work for me...

"Inkcaster" seems very Silverquill flavorwise though

Well, we agree on that part...

Upon looking through the cards Jason Felix has illustrated, I noticed that his style is strangely all over the place though. Maybe it's bias because of this case, but I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out that he "fudged" his stuff in one way or the other before.
Now THAT is an interesting take.
Looking at his stuff youre right, it isnt a consistent style. This case does cast doubt on all his other works.
Too bad happenstance is the only real way to discover more incidences of plagiarism here, if there are any.
That is at least worth looking into - especially since it seems weird for an established artist, to suddenly risk his reputation like that...
Anyway, not much wizards could have (reasonably) done to outright prevent this imo and their response seems appropriate
Mar 27, 2021I'm not a fan of the original Ravnica artwork, but the duel deck version that was also used in masters sets is not too bad.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
This art is the prettiest so far though, but I'm still not sure if I really like the frame...

I'd say this setup cost makes it a lot more playable than limiting your options to react to whatever your oponent rebuilds on their turn.

that cost limits the decks this card can go in the other can go in any and plus you could go instant/sorcery with the colorless one
I don't really get why you're echoing your initial post here.
This is generally worse than Mirrorpool, yes - but it's not strictly worse. For that term to apply it would need to be just worse in every case and that's obviously not true. In a deck that has very tight mana requirements it may be quite relevant that it produces U and does not need C for the ability.
In any case it is a pretty strong uncommon and the majority of this land cycle seems at least usefull.

It's probably because I'm german, but Egon has to be among the least "godly" names I can imangine...
