I'm not intent on getting the card, but I'm disgusted. This sets a very bad precedent for the future.
Oh, for you Old Fogeys out there...remember Nalathni Dragon? Do you recall that it was once exclusive to an event long ago? WOTC faced severe backlash for their decision and it was since reprinted in larger numbers.
This is THAT event happening all over again! They have forgotten their lesson, even though they tout their 25th anniversary.
Such a cool card wasted on what technically is a cash grab. shakes fist

Consider the dinosaurs that were errata'd to be dinos:
Old Fogey (depending how causal you are)
and finally Tyrranax

The level up mechanic was a super neat idea on paper, at least. Playing during the ROE block, I really liked the mechanic...at first. But what really sucked was paying mana to level up your creature (which is a good mana sink, but I digress), only for it to die to Doom Blade. gasp. I know that's a tired argument, however it definitely puts the level up mechanic at a card disadvantage due to all the efficient removal spells amok.
I definitely agree that Monstosity, Embalm, and Eternalize are steps in the right direction. In fact, cards like Stormbreath Dragon are good enough to be played in Modern, unlike most of the 'Levelers.'
In any case, I enjoy reading your articles as an Old Fogey myself!

Ah yes, the Old Fogey werewolves.
Speaking of changed type lines, I just saw that Putrid Warrior has been erratad (?) to be a warrior as well as a zombie soldier - thanks for clearing that up, wizards. "Creature - Zombie Soldier Warrior." A man who goes to work even as a zombie has some real dedication. These Invasion/Apocalypse type lines are hilarious.
In short, Dominaria hype?

Sorry, another banding question.
If the attacking player has a Brontotherium and Provokes one of the defending player's creatures, can the defending player still block as a band including that creature?
Or if so, what exactly happens if Nacatl War-Pride is blocked by a band? And if not, I assume that the defending player would be unable to block as a band because each creature would have to individually block a different token copy of Nacatl War-Pride?

As one who's an Old Fogey and has been playing since circa 1994, this sounds really cool! But, I really hope they reprint some really solid value cards, especially given the $10 per pack MSRP.
