>>44620142 >>44622215 I kinda agree with him, but at the same time I don't. I actually really like Kamigawa's fluff. But mechanically, it was a lousy Block, and mechanics are very important to a card game.
It was the last block that felt like old Magic that was also great to play, after we left the the whole Onslaught thing behind. >Mirrodin: What the fuck were they thinking >Kamigawa: Great flavor, but suffered horribly from weak mechanics and anime backlash >Ravnica: Felt like old Magic again >Coldsnap: It's like it never really existed >Timespiral: Completely over the place, but a great block >Lorwyn/Shadowmoor: Amazing set, but the people despised the look >Alara: This is where old Magic was dead at last
Hell-dozer is in my zombie deck. I almost never feel like he is a bad investment to drop, especially as a lot of the time he can take out the key multicolor land that removes a bunch of options for my opponent. And then he does it again, and swings for 7, all on one turn.
What do you think about Return to Ravnica? Given, I didn't grow up with old magic; my first block was the Zendikar block, and I've fallen back out of magic after Theros, but only because lack of people to play with. I thought Return to Ravnica was great, the setting and story is brilliant IMO, the mechanics were pretty balanced on the whole and the art was fantastic.
>>44618820 For a vorthos, the flavour was extremely cohesive yet starkly contrasting regarding the entire world and the ten guilds therein. It came together very well with the story, and the characters themselves were very engaging.
RtR was, in sharp comparison, a saturday morning cartoon's quality in flavour and story drive. The outside world was now flanderized as The Guildless, and the guilds themselves were entwined in a plot designed to do naught but put the spotlight on the new mascot of Magic. I mean, it was still vaguely enjoyable, but it mostly served as an almost bitter reminder of how good the first one was.
