    So, okay, decent set. I'm not as wowed by this set as I have been by the past two Ravnica blocks. Maybe it's just been too soon since the last Ravnica. Maybe this set is actually just less interesting. Maybe I'm just disappointed that Dominaria didn't get more sets. But for whatever reason, I feel like this set is more of a supplemental Ravnica product than an actual standard expansion. It's a fairly competent remix of old Ravnica themes, which is different than how I felt about RTR. RTR felt like a "legitimate" continuation of Ravnica.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike the set, it seems fun, and I'm certainly going to be drafting it and stuff. But there's something missing. Maybe I'm just getting too old and nothing excites me anymore. :p (Okay, that's not true, Dominaria was awesome.)

    Also, there's coffee in the Magic universe? Not magical enough!

    I don't think it's a bad card, but it's weird: if this just always dealt 4 damage it would be better, but undeserving of being a rare.

    I realized just now that Wojek is pronounced /voyek/.

    That actually sounds a lot better than whoa-jeck. Of course, if you say "voy-eck bodyguard" at the prerelease everyone's going to be confused or think you're being pompous. You can probably get away with it if you have a Polish accent or something.

    i'll admit that i did not know multifarious is a real word.

    The only other time I've seen this word was in Calvin and Hobbes, ironically.

    Wow, so add {1} to Abyssal Persecutor and you trade a heinous drawback for an upside?

    This might be the third version of Rupture Spire, but it's the first one that sounds like a truck stop.

    Nice reprint. Now that core sets are back, though, I wish they'd go back to having reprints in new expansions always having new art.

    Obviously a very powerful card, but kind of an awkward name to get used to saying. We have path, push, bolt... now what, "I'm gonna trophy your Liliana"?

    Why is bouncing something contingent on surveiling? Shouldn't it just be "Suveil 4, then bounce the thing"?

    Wow, that looks super familiar. I thought it was a green card from Tarkir block, but I looked through gatherer and apparently it's not. I'm pretty sure it's some sort of snake/naga thing rather than a dragon, though.

    If I have Goblin Electromancer out and I want to Repeal my opponent's token, can I? Can I choose 0 as the value of X, or does the Electromancer force X to be at least 1?

    I'm a huge hipster when it comes to Magic (my greatest joy is playing cards my opponent hasn't heard of), so I'm a big Coldsnap fan for being possibly the weirdest set printed. I remember being super excited about Ohran Viper, since at that point, the last time green got card draw was like Hystrodon.

    Okay, so here's a dumb idea: Transmogrifying Wand. It's super easy for this deck to cast and kind of just blanks all creature threats for a few turns (or at least puts a pretty hard upper limit on the aggressiveness of certain decks). It would probably only be a sideboard card against stuff like Death's Shadow, Eldrazi Tron, or Jund. I currently run Dismember in my sideboard, but maybe this is worth a try instead?

    lol, someone was asking for that 6/12 token, now we have it in the deck too.

    Haha, that was me! I'm very excited about having two ways to get it now!

    Hope you guys picked up Arcane Artisan before the spike.

    Also, what is Telchor? Is it a place on New Phyrexia? A different plane? Is it the type of being that Brudiclad is?
