“This set is great, but not very many cards are going to make it into Cubes because many options are 3 colors.”

“New Capenna feels more combat/creature focused than recent sets. Even Casualty is tied directly to creatures, which makes it very interesting.”

“It’s nice to have so many multicolored options available in the set - the gold cards will have a hard time finding open slots, but, I don’t think the ones I pick up here will be dethroned any time soon.”
“Tenacious Underdog is super hot 😱. That is my only comment.”
