    Quote From Topandito

    I don't know the lore for Ziggs but is there a cause for him being tied to Shurima from a lore perspective? I would have thought he'd be P&Z or something. I mean if there is a reason for it then that's fine but otherwise if they needed a champ for Shurima/BC I feel it would've been better to make an entirely original one.

    Amumu could've been the Shurima yordle, Ziggs has a story in zaun, also his character fits PnZ so.. So it's purely game play.

    Caitlyn is not wearing her top hat in either iteration, 0/10.

    The iconic hat is in the level 1 art though.

    Everything to do with the SI is greenish so does the ruination.

    The Freljord cards are the best this expansion seem to add a lot of power to "Failed" archtypes which is a great design always nice to see cards making old cards better.

    Seems very highrolly if you can constantly predict rek'sai or not.. Will see what bildgewater got to offer and what pyke does.

    The pay off is there at least.. Maybe we get landmarks with lurk and we can play shapes tone more easily.

    It's too expensive, 3 mana hand neutral play + predict (which is 0 mana by itself), seems weak to me, even with rejsai, the lurker deck seem to have better options in the signature spell of rek'sai.

    You need to also remember that you are 1. Returning the card to the deck first and 2. It's 1 to 3 and not every card.

    Think it should cost around 1 or 2...

    But dunno we will see.

    Is she that bad? according to mobalytics she is "C" tier but looking into it she is just really unpopular pick in solo Q.

    that's cause a lot of her power is in her sonar ability which is hard to use alone and most people don't have the patience to actually use it, I am sure that if you go and main reksai you can get good results with her.

    I just really dislike her sonar ability I feel blind with it, otherwise I would play with her more myself.

    Quote From bananaMurloc

    I disagree: I find the "any card duplication" potentially powerful, imagine duplicating a Champion? That card has potential I believe.

    It's also hard to judge the relative power level of new cards until the nerfs/buffs of previous cards have been revealed, but yeah Lurk seems a bit meh so far.

    Maybe reksai changes things and stuff that give lurkers more procs..

    Dunno on paper so far lurkers are underwhelming, we will see in the next few days what they get.

    Lurk seem underpowered to me, +1/0 with prediction set up or just a zoo deck (run only lurk cards) doesn't seem to worth it. 

    The "mulligan a card for 3 mana" seems weak to me, predict as a card costs "0" as seen in this reveal so 3 mana for mulliganning a card.. MEH.

    Can see it if you are running granets (from yugioh: cards you don't want to draw)

    You can hear Ekko's theme playing when he attacks the black rose:

    one of my favorite themes and favorite champions in league.

    Quote From Nevin

    The phrasing “I start a free attack” should mean that you can’t add any other units to the attack. So the Snapjaw Swarm is nice with attack synergies like Azir or Miss Fortune, but otherwise the card is entirely dependent on getting a few Lurk bonuses before it’s played. Do I have that right?

    I love the idea of Hexite Crystals. That doesn’t seem like enough to make a Predict-based strategy work, but one more good card in the set could get it there. (Oh, and one more question. If something shuffled into your deck, then all cards’ order is changed, correct? That means that as soon as you’ve done one Prediction, your crystals are not necessarily on the bottom of your deck anymore.) 

    Glad it's just him attacking, an actual unit that takes an actual risk and is actually costed properly.

    sorry I misled you, he doesn't have victory defeat, but idle sounds.

    I confused it having those with victory/defeat ones.

    Chip is the best champion from the latest expansion! (he even got defeat and victory quotes!)

    Chip seems like a good add. What did you take out?

    2 Devoted councils, and 1 of the 2/7, the deck seemed to have a lot of healing already

    The soraka list is actually really good against the Irelia spam going on ladder.

    added Chip cause how would they not include our boy Chip.

    Seems really broken with Miss Fortune  but then you have to be in Ionia so.. maybe it's fine I guess..

    seems interesting  the swap spell looks really good utility, the Shen spell is really fun but expensive now you can do it with spell mana.

    When Yasuo was released people were begging for knock up champions, after a while it didn't matter anymore and everyone is playing Yasuo regardless (doubt it will happen in a card game though)

    New card contains the keyword "stun"

    everyone: "YASUO!"

    Not that it is bad no, but i would imagine with a limited deck space, you would want something more impactful. But i guess ping + 1/1 blocker is decent enough.

    Vile feast is still good, it's quite impactful for 2 mana.
