As it says, the Chinese version of the release notes released early. Since that was now out they decided to just put up all of them to make sure we don't have things mistranslated and what not.

I feel bad that Wizards keeps having leaks, the fact that it has been them a decent amount doesn't help.

Just use spoiler tags if you do.

These mechanics are very exciting, and having seen some of the spoiled cards' descriptions already, I am looking forward to a great set.

 

Interested to see the aesthetic changes to Legendaries and cards with flavor text.

 

The "equip to" is nice, helps keep text to a minimum on equipments that would otherwise need an extra line or two. Not a huge fan of "hexproof from" being a thing though. Yes it's a toned down protection, but why does there need to be a middle ground between protection and not?

Because protection just does a lot of things and between not being able to target and the unblock able halves you end up with creatures that are super uninteractive for about 20% of the cards in the set. Then, because of how limited works, that is going to come up around 40% of the time.

it's a real shame that probably one of the most anticipated spoiler seasons is out the window now. Good on WoTC for just biting the bullet and releasing the notes instead of trying to bury a shit load of poorly translated rumors. I'm still unsure about the line separating rule's and flavor text. I understand the purpose of it but It really breaks up the aesthetic of a magic card.

It's more of a cleaner way of having cards like Gaea's Revenge that have protection from specific card types of specific colors.It's just another step to streamline the rules and have more clarity.
