I like the various percentages for last week's poll. I didn't even know that Rise-Rise-Rise was a valid answer to the question of whether or not I've played Limited with a Master's Edition set.
Speaking of answers to polls, this one is missing a response of "Both. I intend to play in more than one Prerelease." Without that, I can't answer this poll.
I was all "who's that weird looking guy in that photo" before I realized it was a different shot of Tom Lapille. Frowny Lapille is clearly the developer in the trenches, while Smiley Lapille is the Public Face of Development.
Art-wise I'd take the promo Glissa over Hero, but otherwise it's true. Going Phyrexian is a disadvantage in the first set of packs, but for me the bigger issue would taking the Phyrexian side and trying to avoid Infect.
I like the idea of New Phyrexia and want them to "win", but I'm going to choose Mirran at the prerelease because forcing yourself to play the black-green infect deck before you even open your cards isn't fun. I'd rather have decisions as to what deck I'm going to play. :P
