What card from the Innistrad Card Image Gallery are you most hoping to open at the Prerelease, and why?

Kenneth Nagle: There's an ongoing joke about me opening booster packs and telling everyone what cards I designed (like so), but I was actually a developer on Innistrad rather than a designer. I do hope to announce to passersby the cards I designed (like Bonds of Faith and Skeletal Grimace) as I open them, but the card I'm really hoping to open (but didn't design) is a premium Ludevic's Test Subject!

Double-Faced Card Rules

During Innistrad development Sealed playtests, I cast this card no fewer than five times, and each time it hatched into a 13/13 trampler and killed my opponent. The card got slight improvements over time because everyone loved it, especially me. The largest blue creature ever printed, Ludevic's Abomination has a special place in my heart (and deck) for those times when my opponent needs to be attacked in 13-point chunks mitigated by toughness.
