    Planeswalker's Guide to Journey into Nyx

    Don't care what anyone says, Mohrbacher's Pharika art is the best of the god arts (Mohrbacher and Eric Deschamps should have done all of the god arts. Except Heliod, Jaime Jones did a great job on him).

    Kruphix's art is astonishing too.

    And now we have 100% confirmation of Ajani (as if there was ever any doubt).

    I think we can all agree Eric Deschamps just needs to do even more art work, tbh.

    Also Keranos would be the best if the lightning bolt didn't look so f****** out of place.

    Athreos has the best God art ever~ Smile

    Also, Maro told us that the Ajani/Elspheth art is not for Hero's Reunion. So we can rest easy there Smile

    Thank f***. That's exactly what I dreaded it was going to be.

    I have to love the reaction to even a hint of a HR reprint.

    I wonder how much life a GW card would need to give you to make up for the Card Disadvantage of playing it.

    Too much to make it not a good design.

    Yeah, gain life effects should stick to being a side effect that just makes an already good card slightly better.

    Like Centaur Healer and Kitchen Finks Smile

    I think Renewed Faith and Sphinx's Revelation are perfect examples of good life gain spells.

    Yes, those would be better. I just listed the first two that came to mind.

    Last standard season left Healer in my head and pod left the Finks.

    Well I said spell specifically, because it's hardest to put life gain on an instant or sorcery and have it be good.

    According to Maro, that Elspeth/Ajani art is from a "new cool card that features a new mechanic".

    I'm super excited for this. Ajani is my favorite planeswalker and it's awesome that he's coming back after having been absent for so long.
