Thoughts and Additions: M19

I am very impressed with this return to base sets. It has good design, good power levels, and a lot of tasty things for all manner of player bases. We have some nice new tribal toys, some really well thought out sideboard tools, a relatively healthy pile of one drops, a load of nicely interactive cards, and some lovely option dense ones. What is most impressive is how this set has a lot of playables without having any oppressive cards. Cards that get rated 8 and above are typically so good that you see them all the time and they tend to warp the meta and reduce the diversity. It is good that such cards are infrequent. In other words M19 is far better for having nothing better than a 7.5
