What do you think of the new set now it's been fully spoiled?

1.) Favourite card?
2.) Favourite art (so far)?
3.) Which new archetypes look strong after rotation of 10th?
4.) Best card for standard environment? Extended? LEgacy?
5.) Worst card?

what do you mean by best and worst?
(Rob - Semiotics class is two doors down on the right in 4C.)

1. Favorite

Returning Card - Bogardan Hellkite or Platinum Angel
New Card - Sign in Blood. Honorable mention to Master of the Wild Hunt and Protean Hydra.

2. Best Art

Planar Cleansing. Not close.



3. Archetypes

Everyone says GW but I'm not sure I see it. Kithkin better than ever? Will the Red deck splashing Bloodbraid Elf (and Blast?) be amazing? Unknown at this time.

4. Best cards.

Some guesses.

Limited - Baneslayer Angel.
Standard - The lands, naturally. Also Honor of the Pure.
Extended - Lightning Bolt.
Eternal - Tome Scour.

5. Worst card.

Firebreathing, Holy Strength, Lifelink, Soul Bleed, Unholy Strength. Bad auras are bad. M11 rules to make Auras instant speed to bring their power level up to (and beyond!) that of everything else.

What are your answers?
2.

That is all.
its a legtimate question >_>

you said firebreathing is a bad card, but its bad power wise, not flavour wise or balance wise :S

Regardless of how good it is, I think this is my favorite design in the set:

For me personally:
1.) Favourite card - Lightning bolt - flavour text is awesomeness.
2.) Guardian Seraph
3.) Rg and Wr aggro
4.) Standard - Honor of the pure, Extended - Lightning Bolt, Legacy - Tome scour
5.) Old auras, Yawning fissure, (those who like land destruction hate it, those who hate LD hate it).
i disagree with kieran completely
I actually agree with Ross on this one.

I am also forced to agree with Ross, much though it pains me.

Kieran.. what? It doesn't even have a quote from Rafiq of the Many!
Me like:

Ooh yes. I quite like these:


and the sheer kerzappyness of this one, although the face is all wrong:


I feel sorry for darksteel colossus. It looks friendly and like it would want a tiny pet called George. It has to be a war machine instead. Poor giant.


Polymorph is bloody awful.

I like the land that makes a 3/4 at instant speed for 5......
