Gonna be real with y'all: I haven't been super impressed with Damon's card design. Seemed like general power creep without any really innovative ideas. That said, I thought the MWL was a solid addition to tournament rules and I don't think he's done anything as short sighted as some of Lukas' worst mistakes in the Mumbad cycle. In other words, he's been steady if uninspiring.
I'm a bit worried about the new guy's lack of experience, but I'm willing to keep an open mind. Game design, a lot of times, is closer to certain art forms (e.g. popular music) where the best contributions are often made by rookies.
Side question: is it confirmed that Damon was lead on Terminal Directive?
