As the title states, I dont think this card game will be any worth looking into if it has any panda lore and stuff in it. It is already a watered down version of Magic the gathering, so just adding in the cutesy pandaria stuff will just be the nail in the coffin.
If they want to have an actual playerbase, they will shy away from adding that into the game, and sticking with vanilla / tbc concepts art and characters.
