Warlords of Khanar - Potential Fall 2014 Expansion

  • #1


    On September 9, 2013, WoTC filed for a trademark for "Warlords of Khanar" in the following categories:

    IC 009. US 021 023 026 036 038. G & S: Interactive entertainment software, namely, video game programs; video game cartridges; multimedia computer game programs, computer game software, computer game cartridges, computer game discs, interactive video games of virtual reality comprised of computer hardware and software; downloadable software for use in playing computer games; computer game software for use with communication devices and mobile telephones; pre-recorded audio and video tapes featuring music; laser discs, video discs, phonograph records, compact discs, and pre-recorded cd-roms, all featuring games, films, and music; downloadable electronic publications in the nature of e-books in the field of fantasy adventures

    IC 028. US 022 023 038 050. G & S: Card games, trading card games, playing cards and accessories for use therewith; computer and video game apparatus, namely, video game machines for use with televisions

    IC 041. US 100 101 107.

    Based on this, as well as the timing (we first learned of Theros this way approximately 1 year ago), it seems very likely that this is the name of the fall 2014 expansion.

    Seems like a super odd name for an expansion. And with WotC alternating between returning to a plane then visiting a new one it seems suspect. I've heard rumors that next block is a return to zendikar (unconfirmed.)

    It's not that odd a name; it's the same style used with Champions of Kamigawa/Shards of Alara. As for a return to Zendikar...it's a bit soon for that. Both Scars and RTR were 7 years after the originals.

    Yup. It's called MTGO. Wink

    Those categories have been used for previous MTG set marks.

    This part in particular is what makes it sound like an expansion:

    Returning mechanic: Horsemanship!

    In all seriousness, with MaRo claiming Huey is a bottom-up design, the first things that come to mind are tribal, monocolor, and tokens. I think it might be a bit too soon to revisit (the ruins of) Zendikar, so I'd welcome another new plane.

    maybe it's an expansion for duels of the planeswalker 14 further down the track

    That's just been the pattern since 2010 though. We had original Mirrodin, Kamigawa, and original Ravnica (all new when debuted) back to back to back, followed by a return to Dominaria, then followed by Lorwyn, Alara, and Zendikar (all new).

    Having two new planes in a row would definitely not be out of the ordinary, not by a long shot. There hasn't been a consistent enough pattern to base any speculation.

    This seems legit, however... trademarks are how we knew Scars of Mirrodin, Innistrad, and Theros in advance.

    Can't you guys see that this is just another phonograph record in the field of fantasy adventures?

    ugh why is Maro always ruining Magic

    I like the sound of it so far. Is that name associated with any of the Planechase planes?

    As long as they also release it on laser disc, I won't complain too much.
    I'm what the fox says.

    So this is the set Wheadon beat Sheldon... Warlord of Kha-a looks like fun. As long as I don't have the bunny card.

    A brief search on Gatherer says no, which is disappointing. I would have liked a Theros card in Planechase 2012 as well, but that didn't happen either.

    They know these planes are synched and scheduled in years in advance... they know exactly where they are going and when. You think they could incorporate themes from upcoming blocks into special sets like Planechase.

    It doesn't say anything about a card game, but it does include phonographic records.

    I'm thinking it's a new victrola brand.
    But seriously, new D&D video game, ala neverwinter nights.
  • #16
    fnord is usually spot on with his findings. I'm inclined to believe it. Also, I don't think we're revisiting another plane for at least another two years - 2015 at the earliest.

    Eh. This could well be the next magic set, but this also sounds a lot like the type of subheading things like Neverwinter Nights and Baldur's Gate get.

    And there's been talk about an upcoming CRPG D&D game. Dungeons and Dragons: Warlords of Khanar seems quite valid. Given that it would seem to time with the release of D&D Next...

    It would be very strange to name a new large set after a group of people, rather than a place or event.

    "Mirrodin," "Time Spiral" etc.

    Gonna bet this is NOT a Magic set.

    Well, except the part I quoted above, which mentions Card Games...

    "Scars of Mirrodin"? "Shards of Alara"? It could easily be about the fact that Khanar is wartorn and everyone is either a king or a pawn.

    The Warlords are the ones who command the T-Rexes. There will be a cycle of Legendary warlords riding on T-Rexes.




    Well, anyway, maybe Sarkhan will return. Warlords of SARKHANar. Get it?

    Eh, well, it sounds like a weird name for a set to me. It also sounds too red themed, and yup, most warlords in Magic are red.

    I dunno. I'll just wait and see, as usual.
    There's a chance to win every battle.

    Frikken DINOSAURS MAN!!


    On a different note.

    There is only 1 card with the flavor text that has khan in it
    . In addition no card name or flavor text has Khanar and no card name has khan in it
