So I've been looking at the spoiler for the past three days and I probably won't be buying BFZ. A lot of the commons, uncommons, and rares so far look like draft cards and I'm going to mistake that for the set being underpowered. Ulamog doesn't suffle back when he dies, so he can't stop mill and therefore is garbage and not viable for modern play. Gideon is bad because he looks like Xenagos and Xenagos isn't seeing play at this moment so he must be bad too?? The lands are just strictly worse shocklands and standard rotates in 18 months so why bother buying them anyways? Overall the set feels gimmicky; why do "colorless matters" when there are clearly colored mana symbols on the card? I don't think there will be much value in bfz because the rares are bad and the full arts won't add value because everyone knows that basics in standard are worth nothing, so my frame of reference is absolute and correct about every new card. Not only that but you'll never see the full art shock lands, they're just a blatant cash grab from wotc. Overall I am an amateur who's been playing since Theros but since I won my FNM one time in March I am a master at evaluating new cards, and take my expert opinion to forums so players can get mad at just how wrong I am.
You sir, are a communist.
