I love mechanics that allow flexibility. This bloodrush-type mechanic does that.

Growth Spiral - That art is amazeballs

Simic Ascendancy is a cool combo-ish way to win. Just get a bunch of +1/+1 counter adding effects :P

 

Here is a great hatebear... new Orzhov mechanic spoiled

Azorious gets Addendum, a keyword on instants that rewards you for playing them on your own turn. Interesting considering UW control players never want to spend mana on their own turn if they can help it.

The only ability that really hits home with me is the Riot ability, which is kind of surprising because I thought Gruul would get some bland ability...

I'm personally REALLY digging Afterlife. I mean, Lingering Souls is good for a reason, because it potentially 4-for-1's your opponent or just puts out 4 power in the air, and having creatures just spitting out Lingering Souls tokens left and right seems really, REALLY good. I'm playing Martyr of Dusk in paper and I'm hoping that Tithe Taker isn't too pricey because it seems like a pretty nice upgrade. :)

Spoilers re-start.

First, a mythic that is obviously good for casual, though more in the late game. Yes, a Jellyfish Hydra :o

I don't even know what to post here because TONS of cool cards were spoiled today! I'm REALLY liking all of these. The Angel is a 4-mana 4-power with flying that spits out basically casts Lingering Souls when it dies, End-Raze Forerunners is basically Craterhoof Behemoth, and the Demon is pretty sweet even without spectacle, and the fact that you can potentially cast it on turn 3 seems pretty spicy to me.

Also, some more legendary creatures! Teysa is a Panharmonicon that triggers on creatures dying, Vannifar is an Eldritch Evolution-esque toolbox-enabler, and Rakdos is...fun? I'm not gonna lie, I'm kind of disappointed in Rakdos, I really wish it only hit your opponent's creatures.

So would Teysa cause a dying creature's effect to trigger twice or just other permanents. To me it reads that it wouldn't double up death triggers on the dying creature, because that creature would be in the graveyard already. Also it doesn't say creatures you control which if solid.

This whole set is great, I love the new weird directions some of the cards are going. I'm also really impressed with the uncommons.
