The Orzhov welcome you. Please leave your belongings with the Obzedat. They are not yours anymore.
Hi, I'm a european crested tit, and a very small punk rocker!
I don't think you will be disappointed by the characters. Get all of them in a bundle if you can. They effectively feel the same as not having characters but offer variation in your starting health, two special cards that are in play from the start (one trashable and one re-useable) along with a few class-specific cards in your starting deck. It is pretty well executed.
A lot of people were disappointed though. They create imbalance in PvP.
