We have an honest to god function reprint of Super-Duper Death Ray in Flame Spillhttps://scryfall.com/card/und/59/super-duper-death-ray?utm_source=discordhttps://scryfall.com/card/iko/117/flame-spillWe also add another gremlin to the pantheon in Blisterspit Gremlinhttps://scryfall.com/search?as=grid&order=name&q=type%3AgremlinHard not to love the overall Sharknado theme in the set, though many are concerned about the overall high power level in the set.  This is highlighted by the new Companion mechanic. One has been pre-banned (Lutri, the Spellchaser) as being felt as an auto-included card #101 in commander.  Zvi Moshowitz had a rather strong opinion on the set in his review for Cool Stuff Inc.https://www.coolstuffinc.com/a/zvimowshowitz-04152020-a-comprehensive-review-of-ikoria-lair-of-behemoths

MTG Arena:

Real player drafts are back for IkoriaI unfortunately have to wait for the ranked bot matches a bit more, but hopefully the data from the real player drafts will lead to even better bot drafts
