I guess it looks ok. I'm not totally that ecstatic for it, since there are almost no cards playable in standard or modern, the formats i'm most interested in. It's great if you cube, but that's about it.
Eh. They made a huge mistake killing both Elspeth and Xenagos. Especially since Elspeth's sacrifice was in vain. It just reads as an insult to the reader. And Xenagos was one of the most refreshing antagonists in years, breaking the mold of "the badguy must be Black-aligned". Honestly, he wasn't even all that bad. He basically called the gods on all their crap. There were a lot of missed opportunities in that second half. Though it was still leaps and bounds better than the Secretist.
As for the Modern deck. I'm gonna pass. You can basically get all the cards in it for around $50. No Fetch land, no bitterblossom, no thoughtseize. The only thing of real modern playability there is Inquisition of Kozilek and Lingering Souls.
:S is that really the right move? That only gives you a few months to play with it in standard once it rotates. I mean...it does see some play in Modern in Pod decks with Spike Feeder though. So it could be a decent investment.
