Sigh. I've now seen my favorite planeswalker go from godly, to average, to downright unplayable. Now that one of the cards i was most excited about is an utter disappointment, I have about three cards I want in this entire set. I guess i'll just be buying singles...what a bummer.

Way to slow for the type of deck she is meant to be in and none of her effects are that great compared to her other forms.

Pretty "meh" mechanics-wise. Can't Elspeth do anything else besides make soldiers and pump them?

@master_biomancer
Karn does not need his ultimate to be useful at all. Spamming +4 and -3 to constantly exile permanents is broken. The +4 on him is broken because it is still card advantage, but pretty much the equivalent of "at the beginning of your upkeep, you gain 4 life and an opponent discards a card". Then you get to vindicate all day when you have some breathing room.

Nicol bolas isn't hard to cast because of his colours (well he is, but it's easy to get all that by 8 mana). He is hard to cast because 8 mana.

However, I don't agree that this Elspeth will not see standard play. It may not, but it will at least be tried, and there is always a chance it can work.

Fans of this card are really happy, meanwhile everyone else is in the fetal position in a corner slowly muttering, "White weenie decks. Too many white weenie decks."

I don't know why people say this Elspeth is unplayable. I mean, the format is going to be much slower, plus Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Boros Reckoner are cards.

Pulled a foil of her at the pre-release. I have never been happier, and she went straight in my red/white token/burn/control deck. Now I just need the red god and I'll be a happy man.
