@Hibernum_JC will you monitor this thread for more than 1 day?
Now that we know a 4/4 with vigilance is a masterpiece-level card, I think we should re-evaluate Gideon II's 1st ability.
I will keep monitoring this thread and try to answer questions as they come up. Thanks for the feedback guy
Told you so, @THEMAGICkMAN When you are talking directly to a Hibernumon, they will get scared. Scared ones will run and hide. Calm down time is normally around three weeks. Sadly, this is exactly what I've expected.. Well, at least Brigby is trapped here with us 8)
Two new weekend events have been added to the game - Trial of Zeal, a PvE coalition challenge where you will face off against the Gods of Amonkhet, and Trial of Strength, where you will face off against other players using the new Amonkhet Planeswalkers.
There can never be a truly level playing field and those who have been playing for longer and spent more will still have an advantage. However, by removing whole blocks of cards from PVP this will remove some of the more powerful combinations from the game and that will impact the top end more at least initially. They will still be better able to adjust their decks and will have deeper reserves to draw from, but a lot of the truly nasty decks will be cut down and level things out a bit. There will still be haves and have nots but time will tell what the new PVP meta looks like.The big win for D3H is that buying powerful cards will be even more productive because of the removal of many of the more effective counters. This will speed up P2W further as new players can 'catch up' a little better to those who have a rich inventory of cards. They won't be able to fully bridge the gap and will still need to learn the game but there is arguably more bang for the buck in standard at the time that the money is spent (and for a good while after).I'm looking forward to having to re-tool my decks significantly, it's breathing some fresh life into the game. But I already miss what I've worked hard to build even if it made me somewhat lazy.

Does it mean you can only use the brand new planeswalkers in this event that don't exist yet or is it also limited to standard like the cards. Limiting to standard is annoying but people can deal with it, the other just creates 0 reason to ever level up most planeswalkers for those that still struggle with not enough runes.
That was fine for having both pve and pvp sharing card pool. With change to "standard" this is no longer the case. So that's why I suggest clear separation and even removal of tiers in pve.
