    Yea. Making a good foil is an art in itself. You have to look at a cards art and decide which parts to "pop" and which ones to tone down, to create cool holographic effects. Making the whole card glossy is kinda lazy, I dont like them.

    I find It hard when looking quickly which cards are foils and which ones aren't.

    Have to agree. Original animations were much better. Hopefully the new effect is more a placeholder and it gets sorted later (back to proper animation).

    If I were to be OCD about it, the foil effect also has sharp corners when the cards have rounded corners so it looks terribly 'painted on'

    I quite like how they did the foils in MMDOC. Not too distracting, but obviously foiled at the same time

    I like the new ones better because they are more realistic.

    However, I do think they need just a little bit more work. There are some cards that look just horrible behind the foil overlay, such as Madelain's Scepter, and some barely look foiled, like jas.
