I can hardly wait for my set to come in. Hopefully, I'll get the preorder bonus cards from Coolstuff.

I emailed them about this and they claim their preorders will get them...sure hope so since I placed my preorder with them as well.

I am really surprised the Druid is forbidden from War and not Death.

The druid is all about life, and it seems logical and thematic that Death should be barred from them as fire is.

True War does lead to death so the choice is a good second in my book. I just find it amusing that everyone I told about the Druid either cut me off to finish my sentence and say "death" when I was going over her schools, or looked at me funny when I said War and went, "really? Not death?"

It's really not surprising since they are nature based, and death is a part of nature...the circle of life and all that.

It is true that NATURAL death is part of the cycle of nature, so on that I agree. But the "Death" school is a perversion of the natural order and balance of things. Reanimating corpses is a desecration and is in no way part of the natural cycle.
I think it is perfect that the Druid is vs. the Necromancer because they really are on opposite sides of the balance. Druids want to preserve and nurture life and Necromancers want to corrupt and pervert and desecrate it.

Also, it's not the Death School. You're thinking of the Dark School. Since nature is neither good nor bad, it makes sense that it is not a heavily taxed school.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.
