    it seems specialized lands are going to be broken this time around

      Remember the land is sacrificed in the process.

    i never imagined it’s potential. populate seemed like an under powered mechanic but know the ability to  create such a huge token then copy it is something i could never have guessed possible. this makes selesnya much more dangerous, though i can’t help  feeling that the styles seem too  far apart mana cost wise. will selesnya be about big tokens or small aggro tokens like midnight haunting? it all seems too uncoordinated. i hope  that the next few cards they release are more in tune with each other.

      I think we will have to forget about the last set. Seems Selesnya is all about powerful tokens, not tiny ones. Just look at the pattern… most token generation out of this set is 3/3 tokens or greater. That makes populate a much more powerful ability. Top that with cards like Parellel Lives and you’ll be generating too many 8/8’s to handle.

    also because it  says put it makes it uncounterable. there seems to  be alot of hate for blue control in this set.

    Populate will be crazy with this, but don’t forget the amount of bounce blue has this set. You spend give mana and tap two creatures just to have your opponent bounce the token their turn? Bam, you’re hosed.
