Re: Hasbro announces 'Shadows Over Innistrad' for 'Arena of

Hasbro is not a regular small gaming company, but a giant conglomerate which controls 1/3 of the toy industry. You can be sure they are doing what they are doing intentionally, and that it is planned far in advance.

As to why, that's another mystery all together...

Re: Hasbro announces 'Shadows Over Innistrad' for 'Arena of

Not being a MtG player, one of the cool things I can see is the way the spell cards work. I'm surprised that there are not just spell card expansions already coming out--obviously a huge money-maker for MtG and should also be for AotP.

Any thoughts on spell card packs to allow for deck building?

ARLINN KORD was just revealed as a new werewolf Planeswalker. Good odds she'll be included in this set.

I imagine they'll exclude her transforming and just give us the wolf form as a figure.

Very cool.

She's definitely in the Jund colors. Maybe something like Black/Red as human, Green/Red as Werewolf. Almost guaranteed to be in the AoTP set for sure

I was just thinking the same thing yesterday ... how cool it would be for them to simply release a deck of AotP spell cards that would be at stores on the shelf right next to regular MtG cards.

I'd much rather see this as a small expansion box with 1 common squad + army card + 1-3 cards of the matching color

Re: Hasbro announces 'Shadows Over Innistrad' for 'Arena of

I feel a minimum of 5 cards per expansion is required to grant granularity. Otherwise, it feels too slow to see the deck building portion realized.

That mechanic is so great.
I don't think we'll see Garruk unless WotC brings him back to life in the CCG storyline. Would be sweet, though.

WORST. PALADIN. EVER.

I'm pretty happy with the cardboard base-layer as well, but some variety would be nice.

A good, solid LoS blocker would be cool, but if it's an either/or scenario, I'd much rather that plastic go to new units.

Re: Hasbro announces 'Shadows Over Innistrad' for 'Arena of

CSI has the new set up for order, its probably a pre-order but I don't see that specified anywhere. It says they have 20+ in stock. There is also a picture of the new set with nine figures showing in the windows. I just ordered one so we will see what happens.

Someone at BGG said that after calling CSI he was told that his copy is being delivered today, so it doesn't look like a preorder.

Re: Hasbro announces 'Shadows Over Innistrad' for 'Arena of

My guess is that they are confused and shipping the original set, but I hope I'm wrong.
