    Looks like he might be interesting... Never hurts my feelings to field a horde of thopters, if nothing else.

    I can't wait for my ultimate to reinforce those 4/4 thopters two times!

    Not sure if sarcastic, but I’ll mention just in case anyone else doesn’t get it.

    Reinforcing a 4/4 Thopter stack twice makes it a 6/6, not a 12/12, because the Thopter is 1/1 and reinforced three times rather than 4/4 base.

    That was definitely sarcastic.

    He seems to be very niche oriented. If you have a few key cards he could be really powerful otherwise he seems to be similar to DB1.

    Good enough I suppose, but do we really need ANOTHER PW that spits out thopter tokens? I know Oct. is limited in the sense that they have to model the PW off the paper version, but man oh man this is repetitive. What about next PW that has thopters make it spit out "thopter supports" which give your creatures flying or something?

    Despite that, good PW. Balanced, good color combo....No serious complaints.

    After getting db2 and playing around with him, actively comparing him to other options, this comment of you completely summarizes my findings.
