War of the Spark will have 36 Planesalkers

Given how much I loathe PW as a card type...ugh

That said, I am curious what they will do. Will we get static ability planeswalkers with no +/- abilities? very weak PW? 

This might make for a very miserable limited environment, but I will still keep an open mind..

As a filthy casual, I'm excited by just the possibility! And it's only one set plus one year of standard rotation before they're gone so if it was a mistake (I suspect r&d and play group worked out  way to make this fun and not disruptive) it self-corrects.

I greatly dislike the Planeswalker type, but the reason I hate it is because the power level has always felt imbalanced to me. If this means the planeswalkers are going to be nerfed, then I'm pretty stoked.

People are panicking because they think it's going to be broken, but at the end of the day so long as there are a variety of different planeswalker that allow for a variety of different decks, it'll be balanced, it'll just feel very different to play with. Can't imagine what it's going to be like if Standard involves multiple planeswalkers on the field for each player. It'll definitely be convoluted as hell keeping track of who can do what.

Anyway, only time will tell. No reason to have an opinion on it until we've seen what the cards look like. It's certainly intriguing, though!

I'm not a big fan of it.  Planeswalkers are supposed to be rare and special, not a dime a dozen.  On the other hand, it will be fun to brew with them and find nasty combos.
