If you think of her as planeswalker who sets there and controls the board, she's not the most powerful planeswalker. Her +1 though flavorful only gives her pseudo protection, and doesn't effect the board in any meaningful way. Her ultimate though really cool, the 3 1/1s aren't horribly difficult to deal with and you have a whole turn to remove them or and least shut them down.

Now if you think of her of black, green vindicate for 5 mana, that also is a planeswalker, who can repeat the vindicate every three to 4 turns, or you can put a lot of pressure on your opponent with her ultimate, and possibly finish them off. If you activated her plus +1, if she's killed by creatures, your taking them with you.

If you consider her a repeatable vindicate, with some bonus, you'll find that she is an awesome card.

My friend was playing GWB and ran three. When I asked why he told me I'd see.
He used her ultimate and populated like twenty fricken times!

Built an entire assassin deck around her. It works beautifully.

In a control deck with a fair amount of other removal, the +1 really does act as protection - if you've been clearing the board to the point where they have only 1 creature out when you play her, then that +1 means that for that creature to trade with her through combat, it'll have to be 6+ power - and considering she costs only 5 herself, there's a good chance the creature won't be. If they have no creatures, you're in luck.

Personally, I just played a game with her where I played her out when my opponent only had 2 1/1s (I had a hand full of value including removal, but these 1/1s weren't a threat so I was waiting for an overextension to sweep). In that case, the +1 is great - if they ignore her and do piddly damage to me, she can go ultimate or get breathing space to Vindicate. If they attack her, she barely takes a hit and kills the creatures for it.

Yes, the +1 will not be great against some decks, particularly more aggressive decks that you aren't able to slow down for whatever... (see all)

I was expecting a B/G Nissa in RtR…

I like to call the tokens she spawns with her -7 "Nanophages".

I like her, but honestly the best strategy against Vraska is to just ... ignore her.

Her +1 is really only very good against creature-heavy strategies, which should just act as though she's not there and gun for the player instead. WHen she does finally pop her -3 to nuke something, then send in a few of your guys to finish her off. If she builds to her ult, just block them or use something like Electrickery or Golgari Charm.

Against strategies that aren't as creature heavy, she's a bit more of a threat, because she can vindicate, build up to her vindicate again (and if you rely on a few big bombs you probably don't want to swing into her), and if she should ever get to her ult, a strategy that doesn't have as many blockers could be in real jeopardy. But if you're not playing a lot of creatures, you should be playing spells that can handle Planeswalkers, anyway (Dreadbore is going to be extremely popular, I think).... (see all)

In short, yes and yes.

Activating the +1 immediately gives her a loyalty counter (it's actually a cost, you might as well read it as: "Put 1 loyalty counter on Vraska the Unseen: Do..."). it has nothing to do with what your opponent does with his creatures the following turn.

There are Assassin token creatures you can draw in boosters, but they are extremely rare, roughly as rare as getting Vraska. I've opened about 13 displays (!!) of RtR and drawn a total of three Assassins. This is because the rarity of the tokens is linked to the rarity of the cards that produce them. Vraska's Assassins and Utvara Hellkite's 6/6 Dragons are "Mythic", the 5/5 Trample Wurms are also "mythic" but you get about twice as many, as both Worldspine Wurm and Armada Wurm make them. Centaurs and Rhinos are dime a dozen, as they are made by commons (Centaurs by several different cards).

So far, she's the only female planeswalker with more than one color. I'm still waiting for Kiora...
