So from my preliminary drafts and sealed (some better than others) is that W/G has the strongest commons with Jeweled Thief, Civil Servant, and Inspiring Overseer. Also that enchantment and artifact removal is pretty important, which makes Citizen's crowbar that much better.

Man, I am not having a great time so far with limited. 2 wins total over two sealed, with probably 80% of that time feeling like I'm mana screwed. Maybe I'm just not used to primarily 3 color sets, but even the draft where I thought I had an amazing calibretti deck I only got 4 wins.

I'm not sure if it's actually going to work out to be good, but the Jund line of "play Chariot, next turn crew Chariot, casualty Ob, attack with Chariot, have 3 Ob Nixili" is incredibly fun.

Jammed games with the Cabaretti deck swapping in Jetmir to be the commander and shifting the goad theme out to make more tokens. Very fun to suddenly spawn in bunch of Goblins with a Krenko (Both versions I stuffed into the deck) and then suddenly be swinging for lethal.

Honestly, all of WotC's representation efforts feel very strange/late-stage corporate rainbow marketing.
Per the author's statements, they killed Nissa/Chandra off due to plans for her as the face of some Netflix adaptation, and he implied what he wrote was more about closing the door on Nissa and less about closing the door on Chandra being bisexual. But then that falls through, and in the Innistrad stories Chandra is all-but-explicitly shown to be crushing on Adeline. Then they confirm an entirely new lesbian couple (and have them kiss), along with printing a ton of very gay artwork and probably breaking their normal rules on how close to implied nudity they can put on a card with Bearscape, but appear to have made this article run only in whitelisted countries, as arbitrary countries in South/Central America seem to be unable to view it. There's honestly no way to read all of this and not think that WotC/Hasbro is a house divided on all this stuff to some degree.
