War of the Spark Odd things

These are just odd things that the War of the Spark set creates.

  • Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God and The Elderspell . You have ten planeswalkers. Bolas has all their abilities. He casts the Elderspell and collects their sparks. Suddenly, he no longer has those abilities. So does it benefit Bolas? ...

  • Nahiri, Storm of Stone and Sorin. Sorin is rare while Nahiri is uncommon... yet they are supposed to be equal conflicting powers. Hmm...

  • God-Eternal Rhonas just plain sucks. Kefnet and Bontu both have their place, but Rhonas? So much for god of vengeance.

Feel free to add any oddness you've seen in War or any other set!

Well, in your example if you have 10 Planeswalkers + Bolas, he now gets 20 additional loyalty. That's actually quite amazing but is vastly overkill at that point.

I agree about Nahiri, but hey someone had to be uncommon.

God-Eternal Rhonas is actually very good as a late game finisher. The fact they also get vigilance means that anything you control that survives the onslaught also can help block next turn as well.

I don't really think that lore and flavor really is super impactful on the cards design 100% of the time. Not everything gonna make sense perfectly.

You know The Elderspell can destroy your opponent's planeswalkers right?
