Wait...why is Legion Conquistador the this set at common too?

Image

EDIT: Wait....is it so people drafting can still grab a bunch of them in RIX/RIX/XLN drafts?

This way it is even more easy to draft multiples due to the smaller size of the set, would be fun if they never planned for that to be decent in ixalan and it was just a plant.

Talk about useless. By the time this becomes relevant you will be near dead or said creature/s put in a lot of work.

This might not bode well for elf decks.

Combo potential? Could some creature make use of the counters?

Preferred Pronoun Set: he/him
I'm actually really excited to see Luminous Bonds and Impale at common. They'll both be important for limited, despite being worse versions of Pacifism and Murder. There's also Waterknot which is just straight-up Claustrophobia.

Reaver Ambush: Weird to see this in the same block as Vanquish the Weak.
Reckless Rage: This looks fun.
Relentless Raptor: I really like this design. Having both downsides on the same card only really makes sense because of the vigilance.

Pre-Release is next week. Also they had to squish spoilers into one week due to the holidays.

Oh fun!...Although maybe a touch expensive. I was kinda hoping for something more along the lines of Rain of Embers or Tremor, but I guess this is fine.

Image
OMG I love the art on this!!!

Image
AAarrrrrggggg!! This is what annoys me about the way they are doing dinosaur tribal. In ANY of the other tribes this type of effect would have been on a creature of the actual creature type!!!

Image
The effect for the cost is kind of eh... particularly for the portrayed tribe (as dinos don't typically go wide enough for this to be effective), but WOW do I LOVE that art! Also the flavor text is on point. :D

Image
Not an irrelevant drawback, but VERY nice p/t to cost ratio.

Image
Hm...I wonder if this will be relevant? Mana when you need it, a card and life when you don't. Reminds me of Mind Stone, but with the activation cost bumped up to the cmc.

Image
The card is nothing special, but I love the shoutout to Carnage Tyrant. :D

Horobi, Death's Wail and Hunter of Eyeblights come to mind.

Additionally, once Tetzimoc is on the battlefield its deathtouch can be taken advantage of by using Thornbite Staff to destroy creatures for each.

Technically Writ of Passage could do this once per turn...

Cowardice (bounce their creatures or save your own from a board wipe or use it to reuse etb effects)
Dismiss into Dream (similar to horobi)
Willbreaker (take control of stuff)
