This set is clearly the Innistrad we know and
love, but there are some subtle differences in
its style. Mainly, there is a lot more light and
color in the art this time around - which
actually makes it scarier. The stereotype of
"dark = scary" is an established thing, but
breaking stereotypes can be even more effective.
This is a great example of art that is actually
a lot more sinister and disturbing than it
initially seems to be.
Its mechanical design is a little curious to me.
It's clearly intended to be a mirror of
Intangible Virtue - just as the art is
unsettling where Intangible Virtue's was
inspiring - but tokens are one of the main
reasons to play Glorious Anthem variants in the
first place, and it I'm not sure whether a
variant that only works on "normal" creatures is
going to be appealing in high-level tournament
Magic. If you're directed away from using token
producers like Raise the Alarm that give you
more than one per casting, you risk falling
behind against faster decks, in a manner that
giving your fewer creatures a boost won't help.
For decks that are about the same speed and
neither of which have Raise the Alarm, whoever
draws more of these could easily win, and if
there are a lot of those around in Standard, it
could become relevant in some metas.
