     Crystalsong Portal has a really high floor on power level (Druid minions are generally pretty damn good) and is critical to token Druid recovering from board wipes.

    I enjoy setting and reinforcing the "ceiling" of the meta, preventing combo and control from getting too degenerate by demanding early responses to my threats. It's both empowering and a service to the meta by requiring consistency and planning from non-aggro decks over a nuclear arms race of "who can play the biggest threat first"

    Aggro and midrange are always strong early in an expansion (especially post-rotation), as they are very proactive decks. Give it time. And give it a Hungry Crab.

    Hopefully we will see these events more often, like in Magic Arena. They're good alternatives to grinding ranked play. However, they should be separate from the Brawl; people want their weekly dose of jank without having to go full tryhard Standard

    Bizarre that people are irate about the lack of dragons when we never heard a similar demand for large numbers of mammoths or ravens. Dragons are big and dramatic; you should only see a couple per set at most, lest they lose their luster. Unless the entire set is based around dragons, of course...

    Would be a fantastic sideboard card, if such a thing existed. Otherwise it's a bizarre pack filler card that won't even see play in Arena.

    Misdirection: not just a hunter secret. Wait until the actual reveal.

    There's nothing "worrying" about that. Magic is currently in its third cycle of Ravnica, one of its most popular settings. The problem isn't repeating themes but providing interesting mechanics and fiction to ground the expansion. And I would say Boomsday and Rastakhan are huge improvements over their predecessors. I would love a revisit of Whispers but it's looking like a Dalaran theme, maybe a prison break or heist?

    There's a lot riding on this upcoming expansion. It needs to be of a significant enough power level to enable new deck archetypes and get people excited for the post rotation meta without creating obvious winners. And while I've really enjoyed most of HS' roguelike offerings, Rumble Run veered into a level of oppressive non-interaction that needs to be avoided at all costs
