    Oh dear god. Please be this. Gonna release the kraken allllll over this place.


    ESP. if Kiora shows up in the block-

    Quote from Jedezter
    The Izzet and selesnya don't have keywords... There is a world of possibilities for the next keyrunes

    And Izzet keyrune has the ability on "deals combat damage to player". Totally see Dimir doing something like this - according to "if one of ours managed to sneak, something nasty happens" philosophy.

    And Gruul can easily be just beater of enormous size. That's Gruul, after all.

    I think in the flavor 'unblockable' is supposed to be "sneaky"... like you are sneaking past their defenses. I could see some unblockable dude who maybe mills, or has the option to deal damage in milling.

    The Simic one reminds me of Shielding Plax. Similar plates, tenticals...
    (U/B) is :symbu: or :symub: and the same is true for the other 9 hybrid symbols with their two colors in for the last 2 leters of the code. ((2/B) and co are :sym2b: and (P/B) and co are :sympb:)
    Alternatively {UB}, {2B} or {PB} in taGSaRe[mana](B/U), (2/B) or (P/B)
    Q is :symq: and T is :symtap: and Q or T will give Q and T in [mana] tags

    I know where these pics come from. They come from the mothership Smile

    Go to the "Guilds of Ravnica" web site: http://www.wizards.com/magic/quiz/default.aspx?x=mtg/quiz/guild/main. Then go to any of the dedicated Guild pages. e.g.: Azorious: http://www.wizards.com/magic/tcg/productarticle.aspx?x=mtg/tcg/guilds/azorius. At the very bottom, there is a link called "fan kit" Download the Azorius Fan Kit

    There you can find these "new" pics :). There are also a lot of other matherial like wallpapers. I think it worth to download the one from your guild.

    Also, just in case you did not notice; in the "Advance Search" page in Gatherer (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Advanced.aspx) now you can search the cards of your guild selecting the "mark" entry (The one that before only contained Phyrexia/Mirran)



    Actually the Mark selection was there before Phyrexia/Mirran since it was original Rav that had watermarks.

    "Tenticals" as in "identical tentacles"?

    The creature on Shielding Plax is just a regular simic mutant sort of thing... And seeing as the izzet laboratories were destroyed, they've taken a more natural turn, and are now being lead by a merfolk.

    Meaning that it's pretty unlikely that it's got anything to do with the 'Plax.

    I'm really, really excited for Simic. If it's a kraken, perhaps even more evidence for Kiora Atua's arrival in card form? Either way, I'm excited to be getting a tentacled creature out of the keyrune.

    Orzhov: Thrull - 2/2 Lifelink

    My bet is Thrull - 1/1 Flying Lifelink, just like Mourning Thrull was.

    Quote from Unskilled Ninja
    ...My God. You're right. The plating resembles the head ornaments of cards like Cephalid Retainer. The tentacles also fit.

    Cephalids returning would be the single greatest thing RTR could bring for me.:D

    Considering just how disliked the Cephalids where, that is highly unlikely.

    Quote from Ancient_Cigaret
    So...

    Boros: Soldier - 1/2 Double Strike
    Dimir: Spirit - 2/1 Unblockable
    Gruul: Beast - 3/2 Trample
    Simic: Octopus - 1/4 Hexproof
    Orzhov: Thrull - 2/2 Lifelink

    My two cents.


    I was thinking the same exact thing...except creature types aren't exactly the same and I was thinking Simic would be a 1/3 hexproof. But 1/4 sounds relatively reasonable too, but shuts down aggro pretty hard.

    Actually, if you read the description of Simic Combine at the GuildsOfRavnica.com, it is cytoplast (and the unnatural augmentation) that was abandoned. Plax is still used, it is said that the ceiling light-holes at Zameck are covered by plax.

    The roof of Zameck contains many openings to the sky, covered over with an Æther-infused organic material known as plax to create opalescent skylights, which makes the chamber seem almost as though it’s underwater.


    As for the keyrune, it seems most like Cephalid - but seeing that merfolk were just currently "brought" to play a role in Ravnica world, I assume that they would refrain from adding another (and Dominaria-specific so far) blue race. I vouch for Octopus, a supported type of creature.

    I think the Simic artifact will have flash itself, and just be a 1/3 with hexproof.

    So it'll basically have flash and hexproof? That's way more than any other keyrune so far.

    I think he means the artifact will have flash, and it could morph into a 1/3 with hexproof, which seems kinda dull.

    Although, flash mana rock seems appealing...

    I don't get why people disliked them. They had a distinct political take on Blue that hasn't been done before or since, and they look freaking cool. Plus, they have a Legacy deck too! (Okay, it's a legacy deck with only one Cephalid, but he's a doozy)

    I guess people would have preferred bland, boring Merfolk. Slant Although Merfolk have been getting less bland and boring since Lorwyn, thankfully.

    The Boros one not having Double Strike would be a crime against flavour.

    It should definitely be a 1/2 with doublestrike.

    My opinion:

    Boros: 1/2 Soldier w/ Double Strike
    Simic: 0/4 Plant or Saproling Creature w/ Defender
    Orzhov: 3/2 Thrull w/ Lifelink
    Gruul: 4/2 Rhino w/ Trample
    Dimir: 2/1 Spirit w/ Hexproof or unblockable

    Seems like everyone is hoping for simic to be some kind of sea creature. But I have to say, where y'all so tentacles, I see vines and the 'head' looks a bit like a plant head. Think Little shop of horrors

    The 'pips' on the appendages right below the head look a bit too much like suction cups, as seen on an Octopus.
    You could argue for Seed Pods, but I would disagree.
  • #71
    Hexproof or Shroud? Well, plax still exists and it was mentioned by the guys from The Pit. That must be something. I just don't know if Wizards will keep going pushing Hexproof forward, you know, because of Geist of Saint Traft. That little guy is a monster.

    I don't honestly know, but, in Ravnica, they had the Snake Elves. Seems like Wizards forced a change in their philosophy, but I do not discard the chance of seeing weird mutant races.

    (Give your LGS judge a hug. He deserves it.)

    Nothing. All I want is Heroes vs. Monsters spoilers.

    Those p/t's seem kinda busted to me. I agree with Boros and Dimir (unblockable for Dimir). But Gruul seems too good. Trample fits but it's probably a 3/2. Orzhov is likely a 2/2 at best but lifelink does fit. Simic probably gets Hexproof and is a 2/1 to balance that.
