I started using this site to try building and play testing decks online. Several of the decks on here are (or at least start as) the physical version that I have.

I am very glad to have learned this game and I thoroughly enjoy it! I also enjoy strategy board games such as Catan, Axis and Allies, RISK, Carcasonne, and many others. I am a huge Transformers fan, and Lego fan. I went to school for robotics and automation and I am a Mechanical Engineering Technologist. I can also be found on World of Tanks as RicketyEng.

I think Sigarda and Sorin will both be alright. She just needs to distract him enough for the others to get what they need.

I agree this story felt a bit disjointed, but I like the plot point we hit. I like that we got a reference to Sorin in the wall, but we didn't see the other Markov vampires who were sealed in the walls by Nahiri. I also notice that Kaya is back to using daggers instead of her new hand axes. Maybe she prefers daggers enough that she got a new set after returning from Kaldheim?

Liesa is the fourth sister angel of Bruna, Sigarda, and Gisela. According to this story she supposedly died about a thousand years ago. We finally got a card for her in Commander Legends, but now also a new card in present day Innistrad. So maybe she didn't die after all...

There was something about the writing style of last week's story that seemed to rub me the wrong way but I can't put my finger on what. I did like this week's story better though.

As we were getting flashbacks of Arlinn's early days as a werewolf I was increasingly worried that they would retcon her sparking event; I think they might have. This story showed us flashbacks of Arlinn as an Archmage of Goldnight who kept her lycanthropy a secret until she lost control in the heat of battle one night. She sparked when she finally realized how much extra damage she had done to her compatriots. This new story does also give us additional insights into her life pre-sparking when she tried to hide and even suppress her werewolf side. For the most part, the two accounts seem able to mesh together to paint a more complete picture of Arlinn's early days. However, the scene with Luciana coming to check on Arlinn at night - while not quite as explicitly stated as her sparking event - was written enough like a sparking event I'm afraid it could be implied well enough to call it a retcon. I hope not, but what do other folks think?

DemonDragonJ, you raise a good question about the timing of this story relative to Teferi's meeting with Wrenn. Certainly based on what we have so far, we can't yet tell which event happens first. I would speculate that if we do not actually see Wrenn in the main story or get any additional hints from Teferi then their meeting could easily happen long before or after the main events.

I got two main takeaway points from Tangled:

1) We got to actually meet Wrenn and get a description of how her bonds with treefolk work. There was a lot to learn about her contained in one short story.

2) Wrenn met Teferi and together they discovered a method by which they might be able to restore Zhalfir. Dominaria sure would be united if they succeeeded, wouldn't it?

Even if those two points are the entire purpose for Wrenn's presence on Innistrad, I think they're worthwhile.
