Isel by now I'm hoping Frost is the most horrific spell type in the game. I would assume we'll see it in Paladin v Siren as it's probably water related.

My assumption would be that we won't see it in PvS, or that it will be little more than a teaser.  As far as I know, Sirens don't have any connection to ice specifically (only water), and based on the upcoming Siren's appearance, she seems to be focused more on underwater creatures than ice ones. 

Then there's the talk about terrain types.  I suppose that could be referring to ice fields or icebergs, but it would make more sense if it was simply water (as fish can't function outside of water, while ice creatures presumably could). 

The Siren could dabble in both underwater and ice creatures, but based on how much hype frost has gained, I think Arcane Wonders will be releasing a pure cryomage.  Hopefully that's the next major expansion.

Since she is all abut luring and controlling i can see some freeze effects in the upcoming set, but as for terrains i believe that they're mostly water-based to summon krakens and stuff :D

Where could be a frozen terrain (ice), creatures could roll DO NOT SLIP roll for entering that zone, if they fail, they get knockdown condition.

Some things seem a little unclear about the Dragonclaw Wolverine. 

First, does he gain both Melee +1 and Armor +1 for each rage token?

Second, it say, "if he has 3+ rage tokens..."  The rules on rage say it can not have more than X rage tokens but the 3+ suggests that there can be more which would make rage more powerful.

Thoughts?

Yes he does gain the normal bonus of Rage (Melee +1) as well as Armor +1. We left things open in the future. Right now there is no way for him to have more than 3 rage tokens.

Perfect card for the upcoming Sorcerer that was talked about in todays Mage Wars Monday podcast. I love it, but super expensive spellpoint wise for everybody else.

Too expensive in mana, level points and doesn´t have any zone attacks, for this cost maybe an attack with 6 dice or with sweeping.

The art its incredible.

I believe that when a creature cost more than 13 points would be definetively and amazing. See Iron Golem.

Yes it is expensive but probably for the weak ability. There are only 2 other creatures that do weak right now, Gorgon Archer and Wraith. However I would rather have the Gorgon as it is cheaper in mana, spellpoints and the regen will make it almost as hardy as this flying monstrosity.

I do like that we have manticores though. More fantasy creatures please. We need some owlbears or wererats too!

It seems that this creature will be known as Astro or "The Manticore". I am not able to fully remeber its name but what i will remember is that when this guy enters the arena, i should kill him as fast as possible. Thx to the Weak and Cripple, he could stand toe to toe with any other living creature. Just for fun, i will do an imaginary fight with grizzly bear, Andy, Iron Golem, Wolverine, Sardonyx and Valshala. My bet is on Sardonyx and Iron Golem :)

This guy is a beast. I would rather not have it fight my angels. My bet would be against the iron golem. He does not have the slightest chance of winning nor fleeing. Due to Astros ranged attack he will be  slowly sliced into peaces without a chance to counterattack. A new reign has begun. Hail the new lord of the skies.
