Gren's Thoughts » At first I was like, wait... is that a Soratami? Then I was like, BY THE GODS IT IS. I came buckets. But anywho, back to the card. First ability lets you shackle a creature for a turn. Not bad. Second lets you draw a card for each tapped creature your OPP has. Blue is pretty notorious for stuff like that, also not bad. The Ult, however, is pretty decent. This planeswalker, in general, needs support from other cards, but I like that this time cause most planeswalkers are powerful by themselves. This one relies on other cards, which is a different, but interesting approach. With the way blue works, it shouldn't be hard to synchronize with Tamiyo.
Art » I had nostalgia flashbacks to Kamigawa.
Notes » Week 1 Spoilers begins for AVR. This set is going to be creamy.
