Magic: The Gathering - Zendikar thoughts

Anyway, I was on the Magic: The Gathering site tonight, and I was looking at the new set that was coming out, Zendikar.  After looking at a spoiler of some of new cards, I am concerned.  Most of the cards look far too powerful in my opinion, like Planswalker Nissa Revane.  That card alone will make elves far more deadly that ever and make it almost impossible to beat them, like I wasn't haven't enought trouble fighting them anyway!  The new set's key ability, Landfall, seems interesting, but I also see FAR too many ways to abuse it.

The only thing that looks good about the new set is that they FINALLY listen to the fans and have changed the lands to look like the Unglued/Unhinged lands that everybody loves so much.  They all look beautiful, by the way.

To be honest, though.  I have said similar things about the Alara set, especially about the Exalted ability sucking.  That ability is now one of my favories and I use it well.  I think my exatled ability decks (I have 3 so far and working on a 4th, ha ha ha) have only lost about once or twice all together.

So, that aside, I am going to give the set the beneift of the doubt and save final judgements for when I finally get to playtest it when it comes out.

I've heard that so many times with so many new sets.

I think that once you get used to it, you'll like it.
