    Whats is dat ugly blue black Zombie token ?
    A Childs drawing ?


    I kind of like it. Reminds me of the old artwork of the early days. Not the computer generated stuff that gets churned out all the time. That token will probably also be around a dollar a piece as well as I don't believe its ever been printed before.

    Here's a list of her other cards to get a feeling for her style.

    And I love the art for:

    I cannot wait for this to come out! My friends and I have been debating which cards will be in the Lair.

    We are thinking: Ryu, Chun-Li, Sagat & M. Bison.

    I know it is unlikely but part of me hopes they are all MDFs, that way we can get more characters.

    It's not real, but that is so much better than the real thing.



    Secret Lair should never have been mechanically unique, I can't express how muc that still bothers me.


    They will put all mechanically unique Secret Lair cards on The List and reprint them in with MtG flavor.

    Chun Li will have Multi Kicker. I also doubt any of the Street Fighter character will be planeswalkers.

    LotR is no where near high fantasy, it's low fantasy, very few spellcasters and magic items.

    Uh, what

    LotR is like the archetypical high fantasy example.


    High Fantasy and High Magic are often conflated by people, which leads them to saying LotR is not High Fantasy, when what they mean is that LotR is actually low magic.

    Love the Drizzt card but the Guen token should have been a 4/3 not a 4/1. Guen can take a beating before she has to return to the Astral Plane.

    As for Drizzt being GW it is spot on. He has shunned his Drow heritage and taken up with Mielikki a godess of nature. Perfect fit. Smile

    Lolth should have been a God as well. (Yeah I know she's a walker, but nevertheless)

    Love to see Breunor but I'm meh on his abilities.

    Lets bring on Wulfgar, Cattie Brie and Regis next. Smile


    Don't forget about Artemis Entreri and Jarlaxle Smile



    EDIT: I wonder if Elminster will be a legendary creature or a planeswalker.


    Battlehammer is an 2 colour Uncommon, so there could be a Kaldheim style 2 Colour Uncommon Legendary Creature Cycle themed around Legend of Drizzt characters, both allies and enemies of Drizzt, freeing up Rare and Mythic rare Legendary Creatures slots for none Legendary of Drizzt D&D/FR characters. The video said alot of D&D characters are in the set.

    So by doing this they can have a whole bunch of Drizzt Characters, but also have major Gods, Novels, Important NPCs, and Villians/Monsters in the book. Farideh, Gilgeam, Havilar, Mehan, Elminister, Mirt, Volo, Sune, Tzass Tam, Everis Cale, etc...


    Very excited!

    I am sure it will be like War of the Spark or Dominaria, where there were a lot of named characters but some had to be used to fill up uncommon slots, which made them inherently less powerful and amazing (since the design space is more limited).

    Still, I am eager to see more named characters! I wonder how many gods we will get. Since they are clearly not all creatures or planeswalkers, there is a wide opening for them to fill many different slots. I hope we also get lots of equipment, like Icing Death, Twinkle, etc.

    I'm curious now, with Lolth spoiled as a walker, which gods will be creatures and which will be walkers?


    you know what I’m wondering now too

    because Tiamat is a creature when lolth is a walker so the gods in D&D got a little 50/50 wheel to spin on if they get a Walker status or creature status


    It kind of makes sense for the Forgotten Realms. The gods have often been flung to the plane and been forced to live as Avatars.



    Also, in D&D's lore, gods are often worshipped on multiple planes, so making a god into a planeswalker is not wholly unreasonable.

    The lack of the Professor is disheartening but understandable. The Professor has definitely let his dissatisfaction with the game be known, so it is definitely not surprising. He is also one of the few creators that does not really need a preview card (or a strong relationship with WotC) to advertise his channel.

    Why is it that nobody wants to play Magic by its regular rules, but everybody who plays the Pokemon TCG would play the game by its intended rules? I could probably think of some rules changes that would make the game way better, such changes adopted by games like Duel Masters, Cardfight Vanguard, and the Digimon TCG.


    If people could figure out how to make a Commander-like game for Pokemon, I imagine it would be popular... But if that popularity would be sustainable for decades, who knows.


    The Pokemon Company attempted a cooperative co-op variant called Raid Battles. However, it only used Pokemon cards and no other card types.
    See: https://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-news/new-pokemon-tcg-raid-battles-let-you-battle-big-boss-pokemon-together/

    I think the main problem with making a multiplayer variant of Pokemon TCG is the lack of interaction on the opponent's turn. Almost everything is "sorcery speed" with some static abilities, so game strategy either relies on advanced setup or comboing off on your turn. Even in the anime, when a trainer is instructing their Pokemon to attack, the opposing trainer is able to instruct their Pokemon to do something in response. The card game doesn't have that interaction.


    That is actually really fair. Frown

    The Kaldhiem foils I got in the prerelease kits are not pringles. The Kaldhiem foils I got in normal draft boosters ARE pringles.
