i like those 2 big Promo creatures a lot! but actually don't like the idea they are promo, so maybe not all people who buy PvS will get it :/
apart from that are they legal in tournaments :)? i guess not...

The promos come in the box so everyone gets copies.

The promos are clearly marked as promo and are not tournament legal. This is exactly like all existing promos.

Which make it frustrating that they aren't legal if -"The promos come in the box so everyone gets copies"

I'm not saying they are even remotely playable in competive tournament play. But if I wanted to cast an 8 point - 24 mana dragon I should be able to.

We can hope. I'm picking my copy up and can't wait. Less than a week.

Promo cards are good for casual play, so you can try them and get a feel for what it's like to play them and explore the ways it affects your local casual metagame so you can get your imagination going. A promo card is not meant to give you any sort of immediate or significant edge in competitive play.

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.

I just made a new Priestess book yesterday to try out the lazer cleric idea. I have no idea how I'm going to squeeze 8 spell points in when I get PvS but I know I'm going to try.

That's not exactly his point. Anyway, I agree with V10lentray and don't understand why they are not simply a part of the set.

Previous promo's were by the way very strong (academy and domination). I even think blur should be nerfed a bit when it comes out.

The official stance is that promos are no more or less likely to receive errata. You should also keep in mind though that whenever they do get released, the meta may have changed. There may be a lot more answers for a promo by the time it releases, making something that currently seems overpowered much more reasonable. If a promo is truly overpowered though, it will get errata just like any other overpowered card would.

I know ;) would have doubted these words a couple of months ago but the wizard changes revived my confidence that they are not afraid to adress problems.

Im not sayin it is over the top or something. I just think it should cost a bit more mana to reveal and be level 2 mind.

Agreed. Blur makes cloak of shadows obsolete. -2 to light isn't worth the 4 extra mana.

You probably never been hit by Paladin :)

Also, every time you get hit, you have to pay 1 mana or drop Blur. It doesnt seem much but when you pay 5 mana for "nothing" you have to revaluate :)

Everyone or just those who buy first printing?
