This is likely to happen again, in MTG all of the planeswalkers except a small few less popular ones have many versions. They have new mechanics, story and everything. This new Jace version is still gonna be cool because it will be different from the one we have.

Re: Shadows Over Innistrad Details

Also, there will most likely be more Jaces in the future. Currently, there are only two other mono-Blue non-Jace Planeswalkers out there, Tamiyo and Tezzeret.

We probably won't be seeing Tamiyo, because she's on Innistrad, but Tezzeret could appear in the next set (Kaladesh).

So new Jace would have a draw effect and a send to reserve effect? Sounds good.

Re: Shadows Over Innistrad Details

Hope this one is good. This game doesn't really even hit my game table much after we played it about 10 times. With the current units out, there isn't too much variability. Unlike heroscape, the same color characters have to play with the same color planeswalker. I have two copies of both sets out and still kind of stagnant.

Re: Shadows Over Innistrad Details

T-Rex,

As I've said elsewhere, with this third set I consider that the game is just starting out now, because Army Building and Spell Deck Building will be possible for the first time. As others have said elsewhere, the main game started out slow too (but not this slow).

Re: Shadows Over Innistrad Details

No word still on the "new twisted terrain". I've got more heroscape terrain than I can store, but still curious about it.

If the box has classic-plastic, we would be starting to talk about Heroscape 2.0.

Re: Shadows Over Innistrad Details

@chas , I am hopeful it will pick up. I like the idea of the game, and getting to use my HS terrain on it as well. There's no doubt I'll pick it up anyways. @MementoMori , if they come out with more plastic terrain that is compatible with scape, that would probably boost sales.

The price of oil (therefore plastic) is way down right now. Lowest it's been since Heroscape launched. If there's ever a time, now is it.

It's a pity that price of brick and mortar is rising again over here. If we have another set as big as RotV, I'll have to divorce to have enough space.

Re: Shadows Over Innistrad Details

That is very good news. I cannot find the source of all this released info though, which is odd. August 1st is very close. Anyone find preorders anywhere? Amazon was really good with the previous releases. I'd love to get the new stuff a couple of days before Gencon

Why don't you try swapping out some of the pieces with heroscape figurines?

My group has played with these against heroscape armies enough times(additionally to the 10 times) to convince me that they are not quite compatible. If you look in the AOTP Mixer forums you can see there are quite a few HS users that have tried it. Here is something I did a little while back with the insight of some of the other users and myself.
