[IDW] Path of Vengeance Series

  • #1
    Mods - Unsure if you prefer separate threads or combine the lot together. (other mtgs thread).

    All the preview information is out on the IDW's entire 'Path of Vengeance' comic book series. This is of course is interesting from a perspective that there may be a chance of getting a IDW promo card which may see print in either Gatecrash or Dragon's Maze, but perhaps not very much in the way of fueling speculation as to anything we may see in these two sets. At the very least, storyline / flavor fiends will likely be happy.

    Anywhoos - here's the full rundown (source here) :
    Magic: The Gathering - Path of Vengeance #1 (of 4)
    Matt Forbeck (w) • Martín Cóccolo (a) • Dan Scott (c)
    Dack Fayden returns to Ravnica! Dack knows that the malevolent Sifa Grent has something sinister planned for the city of Ravnica, but he must uncover her plot while being pursued by Rakdos cultists and Boros soldiers. Not only that, but someone from Dack’s past may just put an end to the Planeswalker thief!
    Scheduled release - November, 2012 (yeah, right) Slant

    Magic: The Gathering - Path of Vengeance #2 (of 4)
    Matt Forbeck (w) • Martín Cóccolo (a) • Dan Scott (c)
    The Cult of Rakdos has put a price on Dack Fayden's head - and Maytov, the best thief in Ravnica, has come to collect. Now, Dack must fight for his life against an opponent more cunning than anyone he's ever faced. Will Maytov succeed where even Sifa Grent has failed-and kill the Planeswalker Thief?
    Scheduled release - January 30, 2013

    Scheduled release - February, 2013

    I like POV 3's art.. 2's is kinda.. poor.

    It just goes to show great art can be ruined by bad perspective.

    So many ooze cards in RTR block! Now all we need is an "ooze lord".
    We have Mark Rosewater already.
    Yeah,but his weakness to bus based removal is so crippling. Certainly not a 4 of.

    3 is clearly the best, and hopefully a creature from DGM.

    2 is too small for me to make out anything.

    The art for #2 really, really sucks. The #3 is great, though. Why they allowed that ridiculous art for #2?

    #3 is Hellhole Flailer from RTR. One of my favorite B/R creatures.

    We've seen all of these before except #2, I think. I know I've seen the others, but that one's new to me.

    I'm a bit more optimistic. Isn't #1 looks like Spell Snare?

    My first thought was the far-less exciting Whiplash Trap, but I can see Spell Snare. That would be pretty cool.

    The comics came out in our shop already so the promo card for Path of Vengeance #1 is Turnabout. Not a bad card, would be good for those Hightide players if they prefer the new frame. Otherwise just an OK promo card.

    #1 - What's the dumbest idea you ever had?
    #2 - 15/15 for 15?
    #1 - Make it dumber
    #2 - Give it protection from removal and counter?
    #1 - DUMBER!
    #2 - Add Timewalk?
    #1 - DAMN IT MAN, I SAID DUMB!! DUMB !!!
    #2 - It destroys everything when it attacks.... And wait, I have a friend who plays mill decks... I want to beat him too.
    #1 - Excellent! Recess is over, go back and learn sex-ed with the other 6th graders.

    Turnabout? Huh. Better than Whiplash Trap, worse than Spell Snare.

    Yeah the art looks more like Spell Snare than Turnabout, oh well too bad for that.

    I don't see the pattern, but it does seem more Grixis, I guess?

    The pattern is that out of the 10 cards we know, 1 is white and 0 are green. Blue, Black, and Red are the order of the day.

    It's all a conspiracy by Nicol Bolas! He's secretly controlling IDW Comics!

    Or the main character is likely UR and black tends to be the color of choice for the antagonists.

    Are the comics any good? I read the Path of the Planeswalker II and enjoyed it. I hope that this series is as good if not better, since PotP is more like an anthology anyways.

    Im pretty sure most people agree that they are pretty god awful, but everybody has there own tastes.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say god awful...but they aren't the best comics I'm reading right now. Slant

    Definitely not as good at Path of the Planeswalker I or II. But I think they are worth reading, if a little slow-going.
    I am a:
    Storyline nerd, sliver-lover, vegan, anarchist, pansexual, role-playing, tattoo-covered, punk kid. Those are all the applicable labels I can think of, I will add more as they pop up.
    Current decks:
    :symr::symw: Allies-Modern
    :symg::symu: Infect-Old Standard that I need to update
    And trying to decide what my next EDH will be.



    I am a :symg::symrg::symr::symur::symu::symug: 'walker all the way.
