So many card reveals! Here are three (actually four!) new cards revealed for Disney Lorcana's second set Rise of the Floodborn. The first one comes courtesy of the official Disney Lorcana website, the others come from Gizmodo and Bleeding Cool.

That's Redwood Banish this item - Remove up to 2 damage from chosen character.
These are some very cool cards! First up, Alice - Growing Girl is a win condition all to herself. You just need to get her to 10 Strength and then she can quest for 5 lore. And if you have two of them on board together you can bounce the Strength from one to the other and quest for 10(!) lore all together. There are two real options for getting her Strength high enough, either play a lot of cheap characters that add up to 9 Strength. Or go BIG and play Goofy - Knight for a Day and get it all in one go. Goofy and Alice by themselves on board is 9 lore. Just an insane build-around card and one I expect to see a lot of decks focused on.
Beast - Forbidding Recluse may have the best art in the game for a common and the card itself is also not bad. Getting a ping attached to a decent body for 4 ink is a good deal. Especially in an Emerald/Steel deck with all Emerald's cards that care about things being damaged, like Chesire Cat - From the Shadows. Also a really good card in limited formats, I suspect. Just an all-around solid card that I suspect will look amazing foiled.
Nick Wilde - Wily Fox and Pawpsicle obviously go in a deck together so let's evaluate them together. Pawpsicle is a great little item, strictly because it's a cheap cantrip (cantrip means it draws you a card when you play it). The second ability doesn't even matter, you just want to play this in item decks and get the cheap cycle, and then stack all the other item synergies that you can. Then Nick being able to bring it back to your hand for more cycle and item synergies is just perfect. Oh, and did you notice that Judy Hopps also synergizes with these two cards? You can play her to banish Pawpsicle for even more card draw! That's just great game design and flavor all wrapped up in one neat little Pawpsicle package.
