    Why are these cards in a Moderm focused product instead of a commander one?
    Because this is a draft set and they decided the limited environment needed uncommon mana rocks, I'm guessing. This gave them the opportunity to complete an incomplete cycle, as they've decided to do with other cycles. I figure after years of Masters sets being filled with cards that serve no purpose other than to aid the limited format, we'd be past asking why this kind of card gets included.

    Nice card I will say again. But why at rare? Strix is Uncommon correct?
    Strix was originally uncommon in a set where rarity was irrelevant. When it got reprinted in a booster set, it got bumped to rare.

    It seems you have significantly misunderstood the card presented. Its floor is literally cancel. With it's high being 0 mana counter spell. It's a novel design that is very confusing but in the right supplemental product could be a good include.
    I was talking about the first design. Yes, functionally, the second one is just Cancel, but the number of situations in which that card isn't just Cancel-but-with-pointlessly-confusing-wording is so small, that there is literally no point in making the card.

    Look, I get that there are a handful of situations in which this card goes from incredibly confusing to "wow, free counterspell!" but that is just bad game design. But whatever. Do you.

    The problem is that a card should not require you to have a very specific, infrequent, rare effect in play just to be able to play it. A sorcery that counters a spell is just confusing and bad. Heck, even if you did jump through the hoops required to make the card playable, you're still spending more resources to play the card than you normally would for that effect. 1WU and a card for Teferi, and then another card for the spell, all spaced out likely over multiple turns and phases and such. I'd rather just hold up 1UU for Cancel and be done with it.

    What I'm saying is that, even disregarding the counterintuitiveness of your design, the floor of the card is "literally unplayable" and the ceiling is "really, really bad Cancel."

    So we have all card images for all planeswalkers in WAR, right? Set cards, Planeswalker Deck cards, Mythic Edition cards, BAB promo, and... that's it, right?

    I don't think I've missed anything, but let me know if I have. I just don't think we've gotten cards for two of the mysterious planeswalker arts used in the poster from a while back (Liliana and Karn). Were there any others? do we think this could mean more unique promos coming?
