I didn't see this one coming. Dark Ascension continues the Black/White Token love. Honestly, it's getting a little ridiculous at this point:
I guess they really want to make sure Sorin, Lord of Innistrad sees play and really jack up his price as much as possible, huh?
Black/White Tokens are going to be goofy. They're going to be the new hotness. And the price of Sorin (currently at $50) isn't going to drop any time soon. I mean, really? This is a sorcery speed Midnight Haunting with a 2cc flashback cost. I mean, seriously? With the introduction of token generators like Gather the Townsfolk already ensuring Black/White Tokens would rule the land, did they really need to hit everyone over the head with it all?
I don't even know what I think. This just seems like "win more" game design to me.
If you didn't already pick up on it, Wizards wants you to put this into your already powerful Black/White Tokens deck. Don't question it. Just do it.
