On the difference between a sorcery and a creature spell:I think the difference is best explained by an old card type: "Summon." When you're playing a creature spell, you're actually pulling a real live critter or person from somewhere, but when you make a token you're actually making something out of pure magic. So when tokens die, they just dissipate into magical energy--think mook bodies in an FPS. But when a summon dies, it dies: you brought it there, so you have to deal with the corpse. Which makes a difference for people like druids and necromancers.
I looked through the Minisite tonight and was very dissapointed to learn that the best flavor text of all time(Lava Axe) had been replaced. It's truly difficult to get that much flavor into a single word.
Did the author mean to say that " Magic 2012 releases this weekend"?
As far as the benefit of the rest of Magic is concerned, gold cards in Legends were executed perfectly. They got all the excitement a designer could hope out of a splashy new mechanic without using up any of the valuable design space. Truly amazing.
