    if there's not a large monster theme for each, i'll be a little sad.

    dragons seem like a shoe in.... RGB for sure (main:red)
    giants is one we've seen in lorwyn....WR and realmcloaked giant would be a good fit. main: white
    krakens in blue? kiora has a number of tribes that she's got affinity with; .serpents, octopi...even merfolk, though those arent "monsters"
    black...demons?
    green....probably hyrdras. we'll probably see more hydras in theros.

    Now, I peronally hope that we see more "weird adaptations"- like for instance the sirens in Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?

    Troy: Total War is coming out soon, and we are seeing that minotaurs are really just humans with bull headdresses-

    so....we have a top down design, balance aside, what do you think actually fulfils the fantasy theme it promises, and what doesn't?

    for me, my biggest frustration so far is "knights". somehow, wizards feels that anyone on a horse/mount is a knight, so we have things like green knights, etc. who probably were never knighted, never took any vows, etc. it just feels a little off to me.

    secondarily, why didnt they give them exalted? it seems like a perfect flavor fit.

    also, embercleave...is it supposed to be excalibur? if so, it should only be able to be equipped to a legendary creature....i suppose we will need to read the book to find out what it's about.

    now.. the good

    adventures are cool visually and so are all the new card frame modifications

    faeries are an obvious good fit even if they're not tribal here... the whole enchantment theme works for them.

    the main thing here to me is that the extra ability for food requires saccing it also, so food still only gives a small net boost regardless of which choice made.

    however, if food actually gets more support, which seems possible if in rare, then the egg creation ability might actually see more play than the mana one.

    as for the goldilocks card in particular...

    remember that in the fairytale there are 3 bears, one small, one medium, one large.

    toughness equates roughly to size in magic. and apparently she just kills the bears here. so....

    my guess is that she must kill something with lesser, equal, and greater toughness. not an easy feat, but i'd suspect it's worth it.

    If we do get a return of wolves/werewolves, i really hope we see them in white.

    why? mostly because, in nature, wolves actually favor plains. they are possibly there even more than forests, or mountains.

    i think it'd be possible to see them as good characters, too. after all, this is an extremely whimsical world, so perhaps the wolves guard the sheep here?

    do you think we will ever see planeswalkers at common?
    like non legendary planeswalkers that only have a - ability?
