No One Of This World Can Stop Me - Gatecrash Trailer

  • #27
    I'd definitely buy Gideon turning evil. And I completely agree that Lazav is the big evil in RtR block and that nobody knows it. Szadek was the way way in Ravnica, but just because it was perfect once doesn't mean you shouldn't do it twice. The whole "Dimir pull the strings" thing doesn't get old. Pulling strings is what they do, just as the Gruul smash things and the Azorius prohibit things and the Izzet invent things. If the Dimir weren't behind the scenes it would feel wrong.

    Also, good point, Gold Myr. It's possible that there's actually an Eldrazi reference here. Perhaps Lazav is trying to pave the way for an Eldrazi incursion to Ravnica.

    Wait.. I see it now... I see the seven year plan in my mind's eye...

    Mirrodin is corrupted and becomes New Phyrexia.
    The greatest heroes of the multiverse find their strength on various realms (Karn on New Phyrexia, Sorin on Innistrad, Jace on Ravnica, etc).
    The Eldrazi secure Lazav to pave their way into Ravnica.
    Niv-Mizzet is tricked into releasing the Eldrazi into Ravnica, where they lay waste to the entire plane.
    The Phyrexians are drawn to Ravnica by Eldrazi Magic.
    The Phyrexians, Eldrazi, guilds of Ravnica and Planeswalker heroes all fight each other in an unbelievably huge battle for supremacy that is so large it takes two entire blocks to show what happens.

    I guess that's too much awesome all at once. All the eggs in one basket as it were. I still feel like we're headed for Eldrazi vs. Phyrexia, though.

    I was just making a silly joke. Don't even get me started on Bolas vs Phyrexians vs Eldrazi vs Karn vs Yawgmoth vs Urza vs Whoever.

    Don't forget the kobalds XD

    On a more serious note, don't forget jace is also probably not of ravnica. And he probably knows quite a lot of secrets.

    Jace has a bad track record when it comes to stopping ppl though. That poor guy can't get right.

    Actually, Gideon has Emrakul's spores inside of his body, and he's going to rupture and give birth to the first Eldrazi with a Planeswalker spark. GIDEON WAS THE BIG BAD THE WHOLE TIME.

    Well...he does have a sleeper agent in his midst.

    There is? Either way, maybe he knows and believes the spy's skulking
    to be inconsequential. I find it difficult to believe that one of the most
    ancient and brilliant minds on Ravnica can be 'dooped' at all.

    Because both the Dimir and the story structure of Magic sets are built around mystery, the unknown, guessing games.

    "Ravnica is being attacked by Gruul hordes!" just doesn't make for an exiting story.

    Personally, I just want to see card art of Gideon punching Jace straight in his face. And put it in the trailer.

    And I believe it's entirely possible to trick Niv-Mizzet. If Nicol Bolas could be tricked by Tetsuo, I think the same could go for Niv. His arrogance could very well be his downfall.

    In the book for RTR, Jace tried reading Niv's mind, but the Firemind caught him and caused him immense pain.

    Gideon will most likely just Pedigree Lazav, then pin for the 3 count.

    Standard -------- No thanks, not interested in losing money once a year
    Modern ---------- Budget BG Pod (spending no more than $75 to build)
    Commander ---- Called it quits. For a "casual" format it's not very casual

    Nicol Bolas lures the Eldrazi to Ravnica. Niv Mizzet unleashes his master plan and enslaves the Eldrazi in an immense artifact known as the Dragon's Maze, buying Ravnica a finite amount of time. Jace, Gideon, et al travel the planes to gather allies against the inevitable war against the Eldrazi.

    The End.

    Quote from Ith
    Wishful thinking maybe, but I really hope Lazav kills Gideon. We've already got a good example of Planeswalker mortality thanks to Venser, but he died a hero's death to save Karn and try to stop the Phyrexians.

    Gideon needs to be an example of fragility and tragedy amongst Planeswalkers. He needs to be taken down, not by a faceless overwhelming force like the Phyrexians, but by an individual - in this case Lazav.

    Quote from Kryptnyt
    Or converted into a villain.


    So Gideon either dies a hero... or lives long enough to see himself become the villain?

    It is unlikely that Niv would not know that Sleeper Agent is in High Rank if Niv is the one who send Bori Andon. In premise that Niv wanted network to be 'Kaboom', Bori Andon ringing the Seven Bells 'As he was ordered' is unlikely what Niv wanted, and he would know Bori Andon is sleeper if he already knew (Which we don't know...) Bells were controlled by Dimir.

    Recent set pattern has been 'Welcome / Welcome Back to XXX' -> 'Oh, an Exciting Event' -> 'Oh my god this plane is damned / saved' (And drastically altering last two block's mechanic in third.)

    I have feeling that Dragon's Maze is going to be a complete mess with Mechanic flying all over the place. (Since there is already 10 solid mechanic, It won't be new mechanic, but it is still likely somewhat a drastic change, like one green card getting Overload and one white card getting unleashed, etc)

    Of course, all of them are just stupid prediction. Ignore this and proceed to next.

    I don't think it's anything crazy. It's simply Gideon going against Lazav because they're enemy guilds. Lazav wants to run the place, and since Gideon will take orders from the ginger angel, he'll try, and likely succeed, in stopping him. Gideon is not from this plane, so Lazav has his enemy.

    & also, you can't kill the Eldrazi so the planeswalkers stand no chance, whoever brought that up.

    Is it possible that Niv is building something to contain threats against him? I'm just curious because it seems like the MtG storylines have a history of prison style story catalysts. I wonder if perhaps Lazav is corroborating with the Eldrazi and Niv knows it, wanting to capture all of them somehow.

    Niv strikes me as the kind of character that would find a way to leverage anything and everything to his advantage, not show his hand, and be more cunning than his adversaries.

    Can anyone point me to some background reading on how they animate still images for trailers like this?
