In my opinion the Eye of Itadjet is what Psylok should have been.
Psylok may have flying and 3 more life, but with full action attack it's barely a threat. Also the Eye has better chance to inflict condition.

The problem with psylok is that it's too squishy to be on the front lines like it needs to be. Unavoidable critical ranged  damage is very good. Since it had a daze chance that seems to imply that they're meant to do damage slowly over time while making it harder for the enemy mage to fight back. Stick a force crush on the enemy mage and have two psyloks shooting at them. The problem is that psyloks die way too fast. I wonder if you could try force crush on the enemy mage, fumbles on the enemy mage to reveal whenever they try to attack your psyloks, and healing charms on the psyloks for whenever they do get hit, and then just use your mage to deal with the enemy creatures while the enemy slowly racks up damage. Might be a bit clunky though, since once healing charms are gone your psyloks are in trouble. Seems rather action intensive too. Then again some of her cards in forcrmastr academy might help, such as that orb. Not sure if there's anything to help them against unavoidable attacks though. A single flameblast could really mess with them. Also I think mind shields can stop psychic attacks not just psychic incantations or enchantments. Right?

Mistakes happen. I'm pretty sure that Arcane wonders fully acknowledges that Psylok was a mistake.

Eye of Itadjet is much better. I'm still not sure an Arena forcemaster would spend a full action on him though.
If you want to try out Psylok, houserule his attack to a quick cast (and maybe a mana reduction). Might be fun.  :)

When in doubt kill it with fire? I never doubt and crush them right away.

Are there any plans to try what they tried to do with gate to hell and goblin builder and errata the psylok so it's usable?

For it's lack of quick attack that makes psylok unplayable.
@Sailor
Yes, mind shield blocks psychic attacks. I don't mind them being squishy because every attack that is directed at psylok isn't targeted at the mage.

Very good write up Puddinhead!

I've made some phone calls and checked with some distributors. As of right now the scheduled street release date for Academy: Force Master is July 15th. That means the plan for now, barring unforseen delays, makes this set LEGAL for the 2017 Gen Con Arena, Academy, and Domination Championships!

So 1 month to Gen-Con :D
Nobody is selling FM Academy at my street and i can´t buy it here at the Arcane Wonders homepage :(
Things might be different "over there". Are they?
Will FM Academy be legal for Gen-Con 50?

Academy Force Master will unfortunately not be legal at Gen Con this year. However it is for sale at Gen Con and there should be Academy Warlord as well.

Printed cards which are currently below a certain power bar should not receive errata to raise their power level. Errata should be saved for game breaking situations, unforseen interactions, and missed text.

No matter what is created there will always be a hierarchy of power. The best cards will rise to the top and the weakest will sink to the bottom. This is the nature of all games similar to mage wars. Instead of looking backwards we should look forwards and welcome what is being added, as quality new options are coming and academy fm/warlord proves this.
