Is it me the only one that was really excited about super Primeval Titan?
I had a moment of extreme hope that it would be! But i figured they wouldn't do that, cause it would be way too strong. It was an unexpected creature, which was nice; and the ability is plenty awesome!
Dear Mr. Styborski,
Not everyone's thoughts are shouting.
Avacyn Restored has not impressed me so far and, quite frankly, has pretty much been overshadowed by Return to Ravnica as far as excitement is concerned.
Am I the only one who thinks this card fails extremely at flavor?
I mean... what does making lakes has to do with... I mean... damn...
This just smells like a really, really generic, boring fatty.
This card seems pretty good in the same deck as the other preview.
I know it has nothing to do with the card, but the 'what do you think poll' really annoys me by lacking any negative option.
When exactly did "why haven't you won yet?" become a design theme?
As much as the talking heads worry over games ending too quickly (before turn four), there seems to be a hell of a lot of effort put into making damn sure games don't go too long (around turn eleven).
Well, I am not quite as underwhelmed as you guys. I actually think it would make a great finisher for a non-white Pod deck. (If you are playing white, it is strictly worse than Elesh Norn)
It's a cool card, but PLEASE, can you stop hyping up cards like this superficially? 8 mana cards are supposed to just win the game most of the time on its own and you're suggesting "comboing" it off with AVENGER OF ZENDIKAR? Like, that is not how this game works yet you try to sell it that way to hype it up for newbs.. It's unfair.
I've decided this set has two problems.
1: terribly just inexcusable excuse for a story (all in all, if there had been even one book encompassing al of Innistrad's storyline I wouldn't be making this comment.)
2:Temporal mastery (although, it's really only half of a problem 'cause no one really knows if it will be game breaking or just flashy yet average)
The flavor of behemoth is not an issue because (for those of you who were so apalled by the bad story yesterday that you merely skimmed over it or even skipped t all together) it was mentioned in the terrible story that Avacyn's miraculous reappearance caused many new creatures to come out of hiding and roam free for the first time in who knows how long. That could still be a major story issue though.
