Neither and both at the same time. It's a Japanese based block, with a major theme being legends. Spirits are just a major creature type.

I was at school at the time, and I couldn't get to the site. IMO I'm not sure if it's worth playing, because Cloudpost Buy/Urzatron is powerful enough. Unless monogreen postless T&N comes back, which I don't see happening.

Yes, this is real. They are really prinint this card. *sarcasm drips out my ears*

No, it's not real. The card is just vinnila, and they don't know the flavor text, so they make up funny ones.

Well, I don't usually hang around the GDF, but I have a lot to say about CHK.

Stuff I like:
1. I'm glad that Wizards is still pushing White Weenie. There are at least four potentially Constructed-quality WW's in CHK. Bushi Tenderfoot is downright ridculous if you have any way to get it flipped. It might as well say "Bushi Tenderfoot gets +9/+5 as long as you have a combat trick in your deck." Okay, maybe not quite, but... well, you get the idea.
2. After white, my next favorite color in CHK is red. Ronin Houndmaster is almost a reprint of one of my favorite (note: I did not say best) red creatures, Suq'Ata Lancer Buy. The fast mana is potentially ridiculous. Desperate Ritual is a lot better than it looks - for example, it effectively makes Lava Spike cost zero, and we all know how powerful zero-cost burn to the face can get (remember Fireblast Buy?) Hanabi Blast is a cool card, although it always has the potential to be just an overcosted Shock Buy, even when the rest of your hand is three Fiery Temper Buys and three Violent Eruption Buys. Let's not forget the Ankh of Mishra Buy on a stick, either.
3. The more I look at splice, the more I like it. Many cards are unplayable because of the card disadvantage they create, but splice effectively eliminates the card disadvantage. I wouldn't play Unsummon Buy, Brain Freeze Buy, Defy Gravity Buy, or Twiddle Buy in a blue control deck, but I'd consider the splice versions of all of these. I expect a monoblue Arcane deck to become a force in Block and possibly Standard, using The Unspeakable as its win condition. All of the other colors have some pretty nice splice cards as well.
4. Instant-speed creature enchantments. These have been done before, but this time there's a twist: all of the positive ones pump power and toughness. Instant-speed power and toughness pumping makes combat tricks possible. Combat tricks generate card advantage, which cancels out the inherent card disadvantage in playing a creature enchantment. (See #1 for what else combat tricks can do.)
5. Colored mana symbols!
6. The land art! I'm surprised nobody's mentioned this yet. There isn't a single land art in CHK that I don't absolutely love. I can only honestly say that about three sets - and the other two are Legions and Fifth Dawn.

Stuff I don't like:
1. Lots of lame cards. Every set has some, of course, but many of the cards are pretty pointless. The arcane spells may have been necessary just to have enough arcane spells floating around, and I'm happy to see the new incarnations of Mana Flare Buy and Ankh of Mishra Buy, but there are way too many cards that do too little for too much.
2. No cool reprints. Onslaught block brought back Clone Buy and White Knight Buy. Mirrodin block brought back Triskelion Buy, Icy Manipulator Buy, Relic Barrier Buy, and Juggernaut Buy. The only reprint in CHK that excites me at all is Mountain Buy.
3. Is Wizards already out of ideas for multilands? The Tempest lands are IMO the third worst cycle of multilands printed, trumped only by the Ice Age depletion lands and the Homelands "wannabe filter lands".
4. No cantrips, pseudo-cantrips, quasi-pseudo-cantrips, semi-quasi-pseudo-cantrips, or demi-semi-quasi-pseudo-cantrips. No cycling, scry, or Spellbombs. No anything. Okay, okay, except for Squelch. I do wish there were just a few more cards that somehow replaced themselves.
5. Where's Sword of the Chosen Buy, now that it would actually be good?
6. White gets Bushido, blue gets "Return lands to your hand: do stuff", red gets "Stuff this damages is RFG'd if it dies", green gets "Tap stuff this damages and it doesn't untap next untap step"... what does Wizards have against black?
7. The text alignment on flip cards appears to be awful. At least try to keep it within the text box, Wizards!

Stuff I really don't care about:
1. The defender ability. Stop making such a big deal about it! It hardly changes anything!
2. The "return" of indestructibility. It really isn't that big of a deal, and I doubt any of the indestructible stuff will be played that much.

Love

The last sentence of my favorite quote is true.
