Yeah, those all look cool.  The Wraith looks fun, it has Blue Gremlin's Teleport ability, is Incorporeal (with 8 life) and inflicts Weak on a 5+.  The Upkeep 1 is a drag, but is par for the course it seems for Incorporeal creatures.  I like it. 

Lots of new traits on those cards too.  I assume Rooted is going to be some sort of super Unmovable and Uproot is going to be the mana cost for the creature to move.  Not sure what Vigilant does, but it may be that they come into play with their ready marker active, or perhaps they come into play with a Guard marker on it.  Guess we'll see :)

If Togorah is a Vigilant Interceptor, and that means what I think it means, that's pretty impressive.
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

Yeah, I'm guessing he comes into play with a Guard marker, which is pretty sweet, especially with the Interceptor as you mentioned.  :)

Wow, Barkskin is really good for 4 mana.  Really good. 

Not sure what the Zombie marker will give creatures, but I assume it will add the Lumbering and Resilent traits, but we'll see.

If Vigilant allows you to add a Guard marker every round then that's really good too.  Wow.

But Barkskin could cost you 6, 8, 10, 20+ mana depending how long you leave it on.  2 mana upkeep is steep, it's a cool card armore + regen is awesome but 2 mana every turn for it.  I guess it is worth it to pay 2 mana to heal 2 points each turn but there are other regen items that don't cost mana.  Cantrip is cool though, at least you will always have the option of armor and regen.

Would be cool if Vigilant was like the Vigilance trait in MTG which lets the creature attack and still block/guard.  Not saying they should copy Magic by any means just saying Vigilance is one of my favorite traits in that card game, so I'm eager to see how they implement it here.

Ok, those are awesome too.  Holy cow, I am getting really pumped for this set!  I have been anticipating the Necro since he was announced, and now I can't wait! 

The Druid seems really cool too.  Based on the text describing her Treebond ability, it sounds like she'll be able to shunt damage done to herself to her plants possibly.  It also sounds like she may be able to extend the range of her spells through her plants or something like that. 

The Necro description talks about his Eternal Servant ability which sounds cool, and it sounds like he gives his Skeletons the ability to reconstruct themselves in some fashion.

Totally salivating over here!!  8)

Yeah, missed the Upkeep 2, still, it's very good and well worth the cost IMO

Cost is big because you can use it together with rhino hide. I think this is rhino hide and you can must buy two life each upkep for two mana.

Cantrip makes it worth almost anything, never worry again about being caught without armor, even after everything has been dispelled/destroyed this can come back out.  Me personally I wouldn't pull it out early and would favor non upkeep forms of armor first, 2 mana per turn (early on) is just too costly, but later game wouldn't matter as much.
