A block with a happy ending? Wow.

QFT.Although that kinda diminishes the effect of Dark Ascension's storyline development, since we more or less know how it's gonna play out....
The black dress + black lipstick makes her look more like an angel of Hot Topic than Innistrad.Her look contrasts heavily with that of Angel of Flight Alabaster and Angelic Overseer.Perhaps she's the one who....*puts on sunglasses*...ascended into darkness.

But it would seem odd then that she still uses her powers of light. And you can tell they are still part of her. Look at her staff.
She may be able to draw power from White Mana, but that doesn't mean she's still "good". Just sayin, maybe she's there to smite their peasant ****.(Actually, we don't even know if that picture is Avacyn, do we?)
My God, she looks awesome! And a large set! I'm excited!But I thought no block gimmicks this time? I thought it was going to be straightforward for once.

Trolljuju wiped the sweat from his brow as he continued his slow trudge up the snowy mountain. The wind was strong and fiercely cold, but he pressed against it. Juju knew Beast Engine was somewhere at the peak, waiting for him. But this was not a matter of confronting the forces of nature themselves; that had been accomplished long before, and was now too easy to maintain the manly man's interest. Today, Beast Engine was here waiting for a friend.
Trolljuju's mind drifted from his appointment to thoughts of Beast Engine's manliness. The only man in history to punch the fossilized remains of a dinosaur back to life just to punch it to death again. The man who deflected bullets with his pectoral muscles during his daily assassination attempts. The man who cured cancer with a serum made from pure crystalized virility. The man who burst with vigor. Not just a man but a Man- the manliest of all men. A god of masculinity in physical form.
Trolljuju's heart fluttered at the memory of him and lightened his steps as he pressed on.
Suddenly, he was shaken from his reverie by a deep, powerful rumble in the mountain that shook him to his core. Instinctively, he threw himself to the ground just before the slope ahead of him exploded in a fiery wall of light and heat. So great was the force that the entire upper section of the mountain was vaproized. It scorched Juju's coat, then rose on the air to drift far away, a plume of white-hot ash. When Trolljuju lifted his head to see what was left behind, he beheld a wide, perfectly flat stone plateau, and in the distance he could see a muscular figure, his foot still held up from the kick. There was no doubt it was Beast Engine.
As soon as the ground beneath him cooled, Juju cast his heavy pack aside and ran. As the figure grew with closeness, he could see Beast Engine was nude, as was expected. The snow that fell near him turned to a thin wall of steam, looking to Trolljuju's eyes like a barrier. Engine was too strong, too manly to occupy the same space as the ordinary universe. He lived in a world all his own. But fortunately for Juju, it was only an illusion. He ran at full speed into Engine, who caught him with both arms and effortlessly twirled with him, resting with Juju dipped low to the ground in Engine's arms.
"Beast Engine, my love," Trolljuju breathed, sturck with awe at Engine's masculine beauty despite the familiarity of his face.
Engine just smiled, radiating from every inch of him with incredible strength, yet gentle warmth.
"It's been so long, Juju. I've missed you."
"Forgive me. I lost contact with you while you were boxing with Death to win back and consume the soul of Theodore Roosevelt. But now I'm here..."
Juju lifted one tentative hand to Engine's face, but he pulled away.
"You know I cannot give you what you seek. Were we to make love, your body would be destroyed by the force."
"I know, of course I would," Juju responded, tears in his eyes. "May I have, at least, one kiss?"
"Very well. For you, my friend."
Slowly, gingerly, they came closer. But the moment their lips met, a flood of unbridled manliness rushed into Trolljuju, body and soul, and every cell in his body exploded.
Beast Engine fell to his knees, and in his grief, he wept. The tears that fell from his face burned deep into the rock beneath him. But slowly, his sorrow turned to conviction.
He beat the crap out of Death once. He could do it again.
Also, if that's Avacyn in the picture... She's Sephiroth. (Can't unsee)

*sigh* Really, block design shenanigains? I was really hoping that would stay dead for a while after RoE. I guess the restoration would represent a significant change, like the awakening of the Eldrazi. I only hope that this time, the secong big set carrys on the mechanics of Innistrad rather than being "its own thing"

Also, no matter what card that artwork belongs to, I will always have my iPod on hand to play "One-Winged Angel" when that spell resolves. Too bad she has two...
I'm hoping that its a corrupted Avacyn. I dont want an happy ending to the plane. I like downer endings.
They've done quite some downer endings lately. Nothing against it, but you have to have some happy endings every now and again.
Been called before I'm sure, but I'm calling it now. Avaycn is a double faced card. One side good, one side bad. Be cool if you could choose which one you slap down to play.
