    If they are buying multiple boxes than one of each Innistrad 3 to facilitate both sets will have been possible for two months before this product. Again, this product adds nothing that you couldn't already do before it came out.

    Block drafts were a thing and players didn't need a separate product to make it happen. All WotC is doing here is selling you the same stuff again 2-4 months after they came out. Don't get swindled.

    I don't think you're getting my point. You can now draft both sets with only one box. You may not have bought a box of either stand-alone set, but you can now buy one box with cards from both. I'm not sure we know (do we?) if ALL the cards from both sets will be in the double-feature packs or if they're selected for a tighter drafting experience, but I can see benefits and drawbacks for either. But yeah, I'm not sure why you see this as some third product people who already bought the other two sets are getting instead of seeing it as an alternative to the other two.

    Frankly, I'm not honestly sure how you can get "swindled" into buying something you want; someone who buys this is voluntarily handing over their money, for whatever reason. No one NEEDS this (or any MtG cards, for that matter), but it might be a good option for a certain demographic. And if it's truly an underwhelming experience it won't sell well, and they might not do it again.

    I'm late to this party, but yes, he would be legitimately insane if you got a clue anytime a creature entered the yard from anywhere. Frankly, I think he'd still be pretty busted even if he could just trigger multiple times per turn. Every counterspell, wrath, and removal spell also generates card advantage? Every time an opponent mills you or themselves you get cards? The fact that you still have to actually crack the clue only makes it less busted than straight up drawing, but that analysis ignores the fact that (1) if you're playing the long game, it doesn't really matter and (2) artifact synergies.

    I've been playing him in a UW Control shell and as is he's super playable on both sides, but without a ton of other creatures he tends to eat removal pretty quickly (twice though!). Honestly I've been trying to brew some sort of list around disturb just to get max value from him because he's probably my favorite card in the set, but I just haven't found enough to do with the yard in U/W/x.

    I'm sick and tired of the DFCs...

    Why? I think they're awesome. More decision-points = more interesting games and more chances for skilled play to matter.
