Here is the fourth chapter in the story, and I really do not have too much to say about it, apart from the fact it did not feel quite as rushed as did the previous story, and I actually liked the multiple perspectives, this time.
Apparently, Olivia may be involved in the story, soon, but, if WotC follows their usual pattern and has the next chapter be the final chapter of Midnight Hunt, it is likely that Olivia shall not have a major role until Crimson Vow, so I hope that WotC does not attempt to force her into the next chapter of this story.

RNR_Gaming, the two rectors and the pod do not use counters in any way, and nearly every card in that deck sues counters in some way.

RNR_Gaming, all but two of the planeswalkers in my Atraxa deck produce emblems, and the other two put +1/+1 counters on all of my creatures, which were very deliberate choices that I made when building this deck.
If you are fond of Teferi, which planeswalker, between Dovin and Narset, do you recommend that I remove to make room for him?

The new Teferi, Who Slows the Sunset is very awesome, and I am contemplating putting him into my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice EDH deck, but, if I do that, I have not decided what card to remove to make room for him. If I do remove a card I definitely shall exchange an existing planeswalker for him, but I need to decide which planeswalker I shall remove.
My first choice is Dovin Baan, because he is rather lackluster and has the same mana cost as the new Teferi, but I like his emblem very much, and, with sufficient sources of proliferation, I can use his second ability indefinitely, even gaining loyalty each time.
My second choice is Narset Transcendent, because, while her emblem is very powerful (and is the entire reason for her being in the deck), it has a very high loyalty cost, and her other two abilities are not particularly useful; actually, that is not true, as her first ability is great, but this deck does not have a sufficient number of instant and sorcery spells to justify using her second ability very often. Plus, the moment that I cast her shall make me an enemy to the entire game, since very few players will want to allow me to get that emblem.
What does everyone else here say about this? Should I put the new Teferi into my Atraxa deck, and, if I should, which planeswalker should I remove in exchange for him?

Here is an article that provides brief information about the new legendary creatures of Innistrad: Midnight Hunt.
I do not have time to comment on every character, but Lier's biography mentions "an ancient deity of sea and storms," which is not the first time that such a cult has been mentioned, so I expect that that detail shall eventually be important, perhaps, if there is ever a fourth Innistrad block (which I hope is not at any time in the near future).
What does everyone else say about this information? What do you think about it?

Also, to continue what I was saying, this set has a new incarnation of Gisa, so I believe that it is safe to presume that the next set shall have a new incarnation of Geralf, since those two have always appeared together, thus far.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor, I cannot believe that I forgot about those cards, so I thank you for reminding me about them.

Beware, I never play rotating formats, because I dislike needing to constantly make new decks.
September 16, 2021 8:49 p.m.
I also noticed that this set does not contain any new demons, which is very disappointing, since it does contain several new angels.
September 15, 2021 9:56 p.m.
I fully expect that there shall be a conflict between tradition and innovation in this set, since that is currently a major issue in Japan, after which Kamiagwa is modeled.
I do also hope to see descendants of both Toshiro and Michiko in this set, since they were two of the main characters of the story of the original block.

plakjekaas, yes, that is very true, so I suppose that I do not need to be upset about this matter.
September 15, 2021 9:52 p.m.
Also, I do like how the name of this story is a reference to The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allen Poe.

Here is the third installment of the story of Midnight Hunt, and, after two stories with excellent pacing, I am very displeased to see that this story again felt rushed and cluttered; why can WotC not seem to hire skilled writers?
I am very worried about Sorin fighting Sigarda, since the idea of the last legendary angel of Innistrad dying is not a pleasant one, but Sorin is too popular of a character for him to die, so I hope that their fight is interrupted.

This set did not contain a reprint, or a creature version, of Exquisite Blood, but I shall maintain hope for such cards to appear in Crimson Vow.
September 15, 2021 8:10 p.m.
Beware, yes, that is true, but I also like to have some level of consistency, since too much change will make it uncertain if the game is still the same game.
To clarify, I am not asking WotC to constantly print cards as good as are Ephemerate or Momentary Blink; I simply wish for them to recognize that some players enjoy the strategy of "flickering" creatures to repeatedly trigger ETB abilities, and perhaps provide those players with an occasion treat.

CasualCucumber, I hope that Chulane is not banned, because I have a deck with him as the general, a deck of which I am very fond.
