Why Lost Grimoire is out in Gerrmany, but not in US?

My understanding was that the original ETA for the English/USA edition was around the same time as the Academy expansions (e.g. spring 2016) but something went wrong in production and it was rescheduled to December/January 2016/2017. My best guess is that the production problem may have been caught and corrected before printing the German edition, so its schedule wasn't delayed.

Glad to see a lot of my favourite existing promos becoming legal. e.g. Both Fire Elemental AND Magma Golem!!  Gloves of Skill!! Wall of Poison Gas! Chitin Armor! Vorpal Blade! Spiked Buckler! Ballista (War only; unique)!

Other highlights:
- Mind's Eye = Mind conjuration (for the Forcemaster) that can be the source of your Thoughtspore's spells, allowing for better protection of them (e.g. they don't need to be in line of sight or close to their target, and they don't have to worry about Reverse Attack/Redirect, etc).
- Hunting Spear... like a stronger Karajah but it acts more like a ranged attack spell with Cantrip, sort of... Except it doesn't cost you any mana the last time you use it. It would be like having an Elemental Wand that you can throw at your opponent for one last (free) attack if you choose not to use it anymore.
- Woolly Rhinoceros - A slightly cheaper Nature-school version of Titanodon... but with built-in Cheetah Speed (e.g. it isn't Slow, but isn't Fast either) and Lion Savagery (e.g. Piercing and Charge +2) - which was something I was already considering doing to its elephant cousin.  Nifty!!
- Altar of Infernia. Holy $%*&! This is basically an Arena-wide Debilitate (promo) for 7 mana. Cast it and Adramelech or the demon that hands out Weak tokens or something similar and watch everybody squirm. Really nasty!! My Forcemaster doesn't like this at all!!

By the way, "Demonic Bloodlust" (translated from German?) is an existing English promo called Bloodthirsty Strike, which can be seen at this link.

The spear is by far my favorite card in this set. Both my Beast Masters can make use of it.

As I posted above, I think it's "Bloodthirsty Strike." My guess is that the trait "Bloodthirsty" in English must translate as "Bloodlust" in German (?). Not sure why "Demonic" got added to the German name, though.

Yeah. I agree on the spear. My favorite card in the set.

Inano: Wrong  ;) (but not a lot) It's an enchantment and not an incantation.

On which? The name translation, or the card?

...

Ooooohhhh.  Just noticed it's an Enchantment, not an Incantation. Hence the "2/3" cost (cast/reveal).  Now I get it. So it's an Enchantment analogous to Bloodthirsty Strike.

Demonic Bloodlust is an enchantment. Bloodthirsty Strike is an incantation.

Mind's Eye looks amazing for thoughtspores.

I am Sailor Vulcan! Champion of justice and reason! And yes, I am already aware my uniform is considered flashy, unprofessional, and borderline sexually provocative for my species by most intelligent lifeforms. I did not choose this outfit. Shut up.

You can also use it to bounce spells over a wall (or terrain; e.g. Steep Hill) that blocks LoS. That could be a barrage of attack spells (e.g. wall off a swarm of creatures, then drop a Hail of Stones on them), or could let you (Lesser?) Teleport your buddy (or yourself, for that matter) over a wall, etc. Or drop some curse Enchantments onto your opponent over a wall (although you could still do that via Thoughtspore using Enchantment Transfusion if you want to avoid Nullify, etc). So many ways to use this conjuration. I probably haven't even thought of the best ways to use it.

*edit* It's hard to protect Mind's Eye, though. Yes, it's incorporeal and flying, but it's still susceptible to many ethereal attack spells including Arcane Zap, and can't be protected by the enchantments you'd usually use on a creature.
