SCS Thoughts on new revealed Planeswalker:
Kiora Atua - 2GU
Planeswalker - Kiora
+1 :: Until your next turn, prevent all damage that would be dealt to and dealt by target permanent an opponent controls.
-1 :: Draw a card. You may play an additional land this turn.
-5 :: You get an emblem with "At the beginning of your end step put a 9/9 blue Kraken onto the battlefield."
Alright so maybe it's just me, but I am absolutely fed up with all the new planeswalker's mechanics. So far everything has been:
+ability: defend planeswalker
-ability: card advantage
What happened to interesting planeswalkers like Sarkhan, the Mad? Maybe I'm overreacting, but the biggest planeswalker offenders always seem to be the emblem creators. And not in the way the game is played, it's the creation of the card seems to have no reason. I'm sure there's more to this than I think but I just wanted to get my feelings out there.
As for discussion for the card itself, I'll leave that yo Lolzor when he gets a chance.
Also something something about raising $175 for Child's Play Charity in our Megaman X marathon.
