I hope foil lands aren't shorted due to the regular ones being replaced by that checklist thing. I'll probably have to put foil INN lands in all my decks now. How cool is the pirate ship island? Best island ever.
I much prefer the concept art for Balefire. Also, the last artwork concerns me - it reminds me of a certain E Cullen, although he wasn't so bloodstained.
To quote my friend as he read this, "I am happy that the game is finally acknowledging my sexuality."
I don't think wizards has fully realized just how much this means to the average gay person who plays their games.
All of the art looks great, but this article and its blown-up pictures made me realize something. What is Olivia Voldaren resting her right hand on? It looks like her knee, but it can't be due to the position of her feet. Look at her feet. Her legs are either straight with the mysterious "non-knee" being something else, or her legs are made of rubber. Am I missing something here?
Actual best thing I have ever done.
though it kinda erased the fact that not all ladies are into dudes.
Well, all of the cheesecake in the game is there for them already. Really his point was that they have a little bit of stuff for people who find the male form attractive sexually.

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.

Innistrad looks pretty awsome. I guess my only complaint is the dragon. As a warcraft fan, one thing that always bugs me is the huge underbites that you see on a lot of wow related stuff. And this dragon looks very warcrafty. It's dumb though. The only time you see underbites in nature is with surface dwelling fish and sea birds like pelicans. Normally the smaller jaw is the one that happens to be on the side in which food is normally found. Thats why ALL predatory birds have the top side of their beak hooked and overtaking the bottom of the beak. Dragons one would expect to hunt very much like a predatory bird. Their food will always be beneath them. Therefore, any dragon with an underbite would be at a disadvantage as it would have much more difficulty actually catching prey in it's mouth. Or even simply picking up food in it's mouth. Rather than biting things, it would be forced to clumsily shovel things up in it's lower jaw and raise it's head to try and catch the food with it's wimpy upper jaw as gravity slides it down the lower jaw.It's a very clumsy look for a dragon. And most creatures in general.
Ugh! We had to have a dragon. I was already severely disappointed with the wurm we saw earlier, but as others have said this one sucks even more because it will suck fun out of limited games. Still glad we at least do not have elves. As long as these non-fitting types stay being stupid one-offs I guess it's bearable. Everything else is awesome! I love the look of the humans in this set and I'm exited to build a deck around the awesome art. The thing about camera angles is awesome and nice to know.
But, lastly, the vamps at the end may only appeal to homos after all - the women I know would be pretty grossed out by waxed-chested dudes wearing corsets.
Does there have to be a dragon in each set, especially where they don't really fit in? They're not really special any more. An endless slew of similar red dragons has been served up for a fair while now.
I think her hand is supposed to be drawing up her dress, but no, it does not look quite right. The pull on the dress does look less like a pull and more like a bent leg under there and the hand isn't gripping the dress properly.
People need to stop hating on the dragon, it's freaking terrifying! An they made it fit nicely into Innistrad as much as they could. Has a "Sleeping Beauty" Maleficent gone all the way bad ass vibe to it (A character who haunted my dreams as a child for a month or so), and I love it for that!
Despite my criticism of the closing bits of this article I've really enjoyed the bulk of it. The art and flavor of Innistrad are very exciting.
