    Is spoiler #5 your ASCII house Hectares?

  2. Emtriz says:

    The set 4 identifier (octagon?) is difficult to differentiate from the circle of alpha.

  3. Hydroclasm says:

    What are the level 2 and 3 versions of the rank-based spells?

    • Quail says:

      They always level 1.

      • Hydroclasm says:

        Oh that’s interesting. Is that a new mechanic for set 4, cards that don’t level at all when you play them (but stay in your deck)?

        • Mendatt says:

          It’s not exactly new. There were already cards that only had one level and cards that didn’t level when you played them. (Specifically, overload cards and everything else at their highest level.) Cards that only have one level and stay in your deck without leveling when you play them are merely a new use of already-present mechanics.

  4. Tumoney says:

    Soothsayer is one of the best of set 4. I want to make an Killion / Soothsayer control deck

  5. ZoeZoe2227 says:

    Wow, the last cards are so weak.
    Their artworks are awful too :s
    Hope i won’t regret my pre-pruchase boosts :/

  6. Jenesis says:

    So now that Roaming Warclaw is a common, does this mean Secrets of Solis just randomly has one less Uterra Legendary than the other factions?
