Didn't knew the Orb was already online.

Ok, here you go:

Token = 14
Dwarf = 0
Bird = 5
Graveyard = 49 (WOW)
Protection = 0
Remove = 28 (WTF???)
Target = 103 (gulp!)
Horror = 1 (only???)
Specter = 3 (they're here to stay!!!)
Liege = 0 (as expected)
Remove = 31
Alara = 0
Flying = 37
Vigilance = 5
Haste = 24
First = 8
Double = 2
Fear = 0
Shroud = 5
Artifact = 65
Equipment = 2
Enchantment = 18
Aura = 5
Sorcery = 33
Instant = 29
Creature = 313
Mountain = 14
Swamp = 11
Forest = 14
Plains = 16
Island = 11
Basic = 25

That's enough for now. LOL
I don't believe that there are 14 dragons, man. Wink
As for the 'walkers... Possibly you'll get the other one (if indeed they print four now) through the rest of the set...

about the #5 planeswalker...

in Ravnica block "dual" lands where printed 4/3/3,
in Ravnica with greater relevance to friendly colours, in Guildpact and Dissension to opposite...
might there be 6 more in Shard's expansion sets since MaRo thinks so higly of them as he refers in his State of Design 2008:

"My favorite part of the planeswalker design is how much they have the feel we wanted. You haven't summoned yet another creature. You've convinced a planeswalker to come aid you. When they come into play, they have a presence and your opponent is forced to deal with them. The planeswalkers are flavorful, they impact the game, and they are unlike anything else in Magic. Add that to the overwhelming positive response they received, and I definitely think of them as a design home run."
