We need your help deciding what to do with the welcome screen.

Our most recent iteration was to bring in some icons (to hopefully add a bit of polish to the interface). I began implementing the icons that @empireoflight created, and wanted to give ya’ll a preview:

For contrast, here’s what the welcome screen looks like without any icons:

The question is this, should we:

A) Stick with the icons @empireoflight designed?
B) Try some flat icons similar to what @saltcod mocked up?
C) Try to find a way to polish the welcome screen without icons? Suggestions welcome…
D) Leave it (similar to the second screenshot above) shooting for a clean/minimal looking design?
