How did a piece of garbage like Emmara make it out of R&D? There is no format I would ever conceivably play her in. Not Limited, not EDH, and CERTAINLY not Constructed. Seriously, she's as bad or worse than a lot of the terrible terrible legends from the original Legends set. She's a giant vanilla creature that potentially does nothing. Even with tokens out, she doesn't prevent them from being destroyed. One board sweep and you're out her and all your tokens. Why couldn't she have made them indestructible? Or do ANYTHING other than what is printed on her card. Green/White is my favorite color combination to play and we've been given absolute trash in our champion slot. One of the worst designed cards I've seen out of Wizards in years.
Wow, this is worse then Teysa and Mirko what a wasted cycle of cards.
Wow. She's not even going in my G/W token deck, let alone beating Rhys and Tolsimir for the position of Commander.
At least the new Teysa no longer seems so disappointing by comparisson.
Wizards: If it isn't game design, we can't do it right. Frankly, we're kind of shaky on the game design sometimes too.
At least the new Teysa no longer seems so disappointing by comparisson.Yeah, this is about the only positive thing I could think of as well: my disappointment in Emmara dwarfs my disappointment with Teysa. Like in, hey, they could have conceivably made Teysa as bad as Emmara, but instead they, well, made it only really bad.Edit: Actually, let me correct that: This is so bad it is funny. I've noticed I've been giggling for the last ten minutes, imagining the process that lead this card to be printed, and not only that, but then to be chosen as a preview card. Thus it's not all bad. There is humour value here.
OMG!Why didn't they just make a card that completely DESTROYS any other Legend every printed? What about MY feelings? Did Wizards not think that I would want a Legend that was one mana, make a token for three mana, and made them completely bonkers? Or maybe One where, if my Legend died, he killed all tokens he made before? What about a Legend that had to copy a token already made? How could I possibly use that!? But this thing? This thing is so horrible! You have to use OTHER CARDS to make some of these cards work! That's just boring?! And who would ever pay more than 2-3 mana for a Legend? Are you STUPID?!!!!Why couldn't they just make it make your tokens INDESTRUCTIBLE, so sweepers are useless against your giant token swarm?! Or how about how they can't have their toughness reduced, so that stupid Mutilate doesn't just SLAUGHTER them!! What about Bounce? It just DESTROYS token decks! SO HORRIBLE!!!! We all know that DAMAGE is meaningless in decks everywhere!!!Who is the HORRIBLE person who designed this dreck?! I want to congratulate them for the brown smear that everyone has an issue with because it doesn't make a token deck that just WRECKS every strategy bent to find those decks! I mean, sure, it does MORE to protect its tokens than ANY OTHER Token-Centric General EVER PRINTED, but that's not ENOUGH, right? How about how much more effective this THING is in dealing combat damage to an opponent than ANY OTHER Token-Centric General EVER PRINTED?! No, not enough! It must blow the **** of any other Token General out of the water as if hit by a Planetellicite Shell! (AND THAT'S F**KING FINAL).

Poor author should have been given something else to preview; previews are to drum up sales. Who is going to see this card and go "Well NOW I want a box of DGM!"?
This is one of the dumbest posts I've ever read on these boards.
They kind of have their hands tied there. No matter how bad the card is, they can't NOT make a preview article around all ten of the showcase maze-running legends.
I love how a card that is god-awful in Commander was previewed in the Commander column.
This is one of the dumbest posts I've ever read on these boards.Well, it is a white-knighting post. And this thing is kinda hard to white-knight. I'd give him a gold star for trying.
