    Never really liked the idea of double-faced cards......
    Still don't.

    That checklist thing to use with them if you don't sleeve seems weird...

    And it makes unsleeved decks a pain, since you now need two cards for that one.

    Double-faced cards are fine mechanically and are less awkward than the flip cards from Kamigawa block, but the whole ritual of taking them out of the sleeve and turning them around is totally inelegant. Using a proxy (checklist card) is probably even worse, but I've never played with these cards unsleeved. These days, my decks are generally double-sleeved anyway, and I can scarcely imagine going back...

    Delver of Secrets soured the transform mechanic for me (and probably for many others), but these new planeswalkers actually look like they could be pretty fun. Also, spell mastery has some nice potential.
