I'm happy to see many of the newly revealed rules make a lot of "common sense". It really makes the game seem more intuitive. I'm really looking forward to this one.

Having the ranged attack step makes it sort of feel like the old Decipher Card Game version of Lord of the Rings where there was an "Archery" step during combat. Sometimes people got shot to death by arrows so they weren't around to deal their combat damage. I suppose in this game that could conceptually mean your "really good in Melee" unit might get shot to death whilst "charging across the battlefield" so they never get to assault. Hey, it's kind of like the minis game after all, LOL!
And I do like the "Flying" mechanic, too. Well done, FFG!

That's the drawback for looking at your deck. Not even a drawback, since you know which cards are at the bottom and lets you guess your incoming cards.

It speeds the game up as well, rather than having to shuffle after each search effect. Distinguishes it from the other LCG's by providing a different feel. Plus it saves wear and tear on your sleeves!
