Kind of sad that this doesn't make Gold tokens, or at least Treasure, but hey, nice to see Vraska getting a power boost.

I don't know how relevant the ascend will be in constructed, except that if you have big guys who survive the sweep, they'll get to attack for their full power that turn

I'm not in love with this effect for modern Limited. It's great against vampires, good against Merfolk, bad against Dinos. Great if you do have Ascend.

Where's the gold? I don't see any gold here. Flavour unhappy. I think the image is Vraska casting a spell that turns other creatures into gold, but it also kind of looks like Vraska is trying to resist being turned to gold herself. Also, why does this shrink? Am I just losing parts of me to gold? They stop being gold soon after since it's just until end of turn. The card is fine, but the art and name make me think this is something totally different.

I was hoping that this was a story spotlight card so that I knew I'd get a Magic Story about what the heck is going on here.

This is basically worse version of fiery cannonade

The picture is Vraska being powered up by the Immortal Sun (if you look closely, you can see she's standing on it) allowing her gaze attack to hit lots of vampires simultaneously. The effect of the card....does not line up with that very well.

gold tokens likely considered too oppressive because it would make ascending easier and synergy with improvise
