We saw her earlier this year. The original peek looks a lot like Tessa Thompson; not so much here.

Definitely feels like a Garruk replacement. A bit like Domri.

The Ob Nixilis Reignited planeswalker template continues.

It’s card value but feels generic.

Yeah this is just 3 different green mechanics on a card.

Is this just for diversity quota or is there a story reason they can't bring Garruk back?

Last we saw Garruk he was fairly Green/Black and since his whole thing is killing other PWers it's hard to have him just be in a story and not have that be a driving point so it's probably just hard to fit him in.

Also for some reason, Monogreen, Gruul, and Selsenya need like a dozen PWers each.

The theme is "Walkers Bolas has messed with over the years." Garruk is not on that list so they put in a new green Walker to fill the gap.

Is this necessary?

This feels like a borderline sideboard card, being an 1 ability walker often is aawkward for a 5 drop.

The first ability kind of fits her "nature collector" schtik.
The 3rd part of the 2nd ability fits having a bow. The other 2/3 is generic green.
The ultimate is pretty much Garruk.

Not really seeing the connecting thread here, but I'm pretty sure it's green.

is this the first Planeswalker who's name sounds like a Fashion Designer?

Hmmmm...

Jace Beleren - Star Athlete
Chandra Naalar - Psychic
Garruk Wildspeaker - Barbarian Tribesman
Gideon Jura - Super hero alter-ego
Nissa Revene - Compact Car
Sarhkan Vol - OK, this one does sound like a Mongol.
Ob Nixilis - Heavy Metal band
Nicol Bolas - Italian politician
Ajani Goldmane - Pro wrestler
Liliana Vess - whiny white pop singer
Jaya Ballard - troubadour
Arlinn Kord - Lumberjack

The ones with only 1 name are much harder to typecast.
