With the arrival of Lightseekers: Kindred on August 7th, things are going to get a whole lot more… Familiar. That’s right, today we’re going to be discussing Families, specifically who belongs to a Family and who doesn’t.
All the cards that have been printed in Lightseekers: Mythical and Kindred (including the reprinted cards in the Kindred Decks) already have Family icons; but the question has been asked a number of times, as to what is happening with the cards from Awakening that haven’t been lucky enough to be reprinted. Well, don’t worry, we’re not going to let your Chimchu Lookouts and your Kreebal Saboteurs miss out on fitting in with the rest of their Family.
When we update the Card Database to include the cards from Lightseekers: Kindred we will also be updating all the existing cards to display their appropriate Families; including the cards that have not yet been reprinted with icons physically on the card.
The cards affected by these changes are as follows:
Prismatic Sun Feeder
Kreebal Raid Party
Kreebal Potion Master
Temple of Patience
Colossi Ritual Site
In regards to tournament play, we understand that it will take some time to adjust and remember which cards now belong in Family groups; in some cases it is easier than others due to the cards name or art (e.g. Defiler has an Umbron character in its art, or Mirror Beast being a Beast), but others are not necessarily immediately as clear. If you are unclear and would like to confirm the Family of a specific card during a game (whether it is in play or not) you are more than welcome to ask a Tournament Official to confirm for you.
We can’t wait to see the decks that you all come up with when Lightseekers: Kindred hits; if you have any further questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us via Facebook, Twitter, on the Forums, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Discuss this further in the forums!
