CCDD 032119 - Clever Disguise and Big Boo

Today is Purim, a Jewish holiday during which we tend to dress up in costumes and disguises. Magic has tackled disguises and such before, but I was a little surprised that this card doesn't already exist.

Can Planeswalkers Be Signposts?

Please enjoy this guest post from Larcent. —Jay Treat

War of the Spark is going to be bringing Magic players a flood of planeswalker cards, all at the same time. The final set in this latest trip to Ravnica will feature 36 planeswalkers, and each pack is guaranteed to have at least one.

There is going to be a lot to learn about planeswalker design after War of the Spark comes out and we see it all in action. The power levels are going to likely be lower, many of them designed to be rares or uncommons.
