I almost never post in spoiler threads, partly because I do set reviews.
But WTF is going on here. There are three sets in three months with likely Vintage playables? This is an insane time to be a Vintage player.
And the - ability in this card is nearly Tiny Jace, without the hassle of having to flip it? AND you get as many activations as Tiny Jace does?
I mean you are talking about a 1U card vs a 1RR card. Chandra is far more difficult to cast and cannot be pitched to either of the blue forces, and should be more powerful all things considered.
I think that we may just have to consider the fact that walker cards are inherently just so strong because of how they work within the rules and their interaction with other cards that every set likely has something that is in the grey area for vintage. Hell there are walkers from sets from years ago that never saw play that I'm starting to look at again just because they may have a place now.
I mean, for 4 mana (and its blue) Narset, Transcendent would let you double cast 3 spells without extra mana.
