Re: First Expansion "Battle for Zendikar"

He's a colorless hero, not a Planeswalker, so basically he would just replace squad points for any Planeswalker technically

Re: First Expansion "Battle for Zendikar"

Does the expansion cards text have been spoiled somewhere?

The worse with Kiora: if someone picks up her, Jace AND Nissa can become unavaliable to play. I hoped that for Kiora and Ob would be at least a deck for each, plus some cards for another colors as well.
True... that's one of the reasons I'm considering getting a second of each sets. That way every planeswalker can choose among all possibilities.

One thing I was wondering about... do you think that the dual colored planeswalker will have a limit on how they can build their armies? For example, max 50% of points in one color and/or a maximum of points spent on a single spell/unit. That way it would be similar to the card game.



I ask because in the card game, if you put 2 (or more) colors in one deck, it can hinder your ability to cast single colored spells. In a 60 card deck you might have 20 mana cards.

In a deck with 2 colors, you might have 10 of each colors. So sometimes you can't do anything because you only have let's say red mana but your hand is full of blue spells. For the same reason, you wouldn't put any cards requiring too much of the same color in the deck.

Re: First Expansion "Battle for Zendikar"

I think it looks like a fine expansion to me. But because it continues the plan of "cheap price and minimal stuff" compared to other games, I think it will take several years before its a fully realized design, with lots of cards, figures and terrain for deckbuilding and multiple possible combinations for army building. All the more reason to combine AOTP with Heroscape for the foreseeable future.

Smaller expansions such as card packs would certainly help move things along.

Agreed and agreed. This is clearly a long-term project for Hasbro/WotC. However, with as many other fantastic choices board gamers have these days, they need to make sure AotP isn't forgotten. The Magic brand has some power in the deep nerd forest, but casual gamers have no problem passing it over.

In order to stay relevant, they need to pump out some sort of expansions basically quarterly.

I think it's possible to mix any cards and army cards from those colors (blue and green) respecting the points cap. Kiora can go full blue or full green.


I see the point for slowly progress until you have plenty of resources to play everything. But still, it's a core set plus an expansion and you can't enjoy it fully. There's a rumor about a standalone game that should fix everything. Anyways, I'm getting my 2nd copy of the core set and solving my issues

Re: First Expansion "Battle for Zendikar"

Amazon sent me an email about expansion estimate arrival on Dec 18th. But the game just releases on Dec 31st.
Does anyone else that pre ordered from Amazon got the same thing?

It is actually in stock now at Amazon Link

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!

Re: First Expansion "Battle for Zendikar"

HeroTempest,

How would a Stand Alone game solve our issues? Would it be more complete?
