Can I just pop in to say that this set is awesome and I love it? Because this set is awesome and I love it. Innistrad becomes more awesome with every set because the new cards tend to play well with the old cards, and it's great that they included a handful of cards with random old keywords like Investigate. And it's good to see that they still come up with new horror references for individual cards while still feeling very much like Innistrad. The Them! reference stood out to me the most (I even watched that movie!). Oh, and Delver of Secrets now turns into the Mothman instead of The Fly, that's pretty funny.

I'm a bit surprised we haven't seen a reference to The Castle of Otranto on Innistrad so far, though (unless I missed something), considering it's the first gothic novel. I'm still waiting for that removal spell that kills a creature by dropping a giant helmet on it. Or at least a gigantic Spirit Knight in a suit of armour tearing down a castle.

I'm assuming they're saving that for Crimson Vow, which deals with castles and mansions since that's where vampires live.

Preferred Pronoun Set: He/Him
As a horror buff I'm loving the more modern/non-gothic horror references through gothic horror lens. The slasher horror, b-horror creature flick and left over/returning cosmic horror and supernatural mystery stuff along with the folk horror has been really fun. I love the gothic horror stuff but Innistrad defiantly can't just use that over and over. Plus what nice is a lot of stuff we see in retunes (both the lovecraft cults and pagan witches) where elements in past Innistrad sets the retunes built off so having more themes to draw from will mean Innistrad won't feel too tired out for future return sets.

Also makes me hope we might see the lands outside of the main lands maybe have some non-European horror tropes and monsters to deal with.
