    Ironically the Ur Dragon looks the most like a Theros card out of them hahahaha

    I'm not going to speculate anything. I really had thought the Eldrazi release would be some worthwhile time-spanning scheme that turned out as lame as ever possible, so I'll just wait.

    Whatever these do, for the love of Thassa reprint Thran Dynamo in all 4 decks. And still it'll be $8 I promise you that.

    UB is the impression I am getting as well.

    I think pairing the gods would be a poor decision but this is how I would imagine it. I doubt they will do this and with good reason

    Ephara and Karametra
    Mogis and Iroas
    Phenax and Athreos (The Returned, etc.)
    Pharika and Keranos?
    Kruphix and Love God?

    Eh. They can get individual cards, but as Rare. Or the story could focus on the major gods and just do those. Too many god cards to do a second cycle of them all. I'd just give the RG god and the Monochrome ones new cards.

    I wasn't really feeling the multicolor gods in Theros anyway - I love all the gods and that variety, and was glad they were there (probably indeed better at Rare) but personally I preferred the Mono-color gods.

    Something about the Amonkhet gods just hasn't been interesting to me. Perhaps because they've come after the Theros ones, or Egyptian gods aren't as prominent, or because Bolas ate up all their creative space? Whatever it is, they didn't appeal as much to me as the Monocolor Theros gods.

    The metropolitan nature of Ravnica would be more interesting if they stopped making everything happen in the capital. All the action lately takes place in the districts of the capital and the abandoned wastes around it, which undercuts the idea of a city wide Metropolis. Having some cards set in regions of the plane that are completely controlled by certain guilds, other cities, even "rural" areas that are still cities but just slightly less built up, like buildings are all 3 or 4 stories, would be interesting and help further the theme. Also, a mechanic that plays on the city flavor.

    I don't think "plane-wide metropolis" is enough to build an entire block around mechanically and flavourfully. It probably only works as a flavour coating for a mechanical core theme, like they did with Zendikar, where "adventure world" was the flavour hook for a land-matters block. Just as how the coating also leads to some interesting designs not related to the mechanical theme (allies, quests, traps) could the metropolitan coating of such a world also lead to "city-based" mechanics while still having a larger theme.

    Problem is, Ravnica already has a mechanical theme, so I don't see Wizards exploring the city-flavour at the cost of the guilds. The guilds made Ravnica popular, not the metropolis aspect. I'm not saying the metropolis aspect is bland (personally I'm a big sucker for Coruscant-like worlds) but it's by far not Ravnica's core appeal.

    Nevertheless, for meta reasons, the pantheon won't be dissolved. We might get a reduced panthon (some gods merging into one) to reduce the need for 15 gods in the modern block system or the gods will change, but we won't get a godless Theros permanently. At most, we might see the removal of the theran gods in one set and then in the next revisit a resurgence of new gods.


    Or the minor gods moved down to rare.

    I highly doubt they'll ever print a creature with the typeline "God" as anything but Mythic.
    They could. On Theros they're minor gods. The main gods could be the mythic ones. Maro has said he thought it a mistake making the minor 10 Mythics.

    Viewing this thread has become so painful. This product better live up to the hype at this rate.

    I always figured contraptions would be a variant of Meld.

    I'm loving the art. Reminds me of all those wacky novel covers from elementary school haha. Love it! I play the original Show and Tell because I love that style.

    I saved the image and used photoshop to select the colors located in the vicinity of her mana cost - all of the tones are variations of yellow, but some pixels lean more to Bluish-green when selected, darken to a darker yellow (Black) and lighten to what is presumably White. I looked up Oloro and the scheme matches: WUB in that order of color change. I am going to say she's Esper. Try it out.


    That means 4 white decks, I think there is a better chance at Grixis Wizards than 4 white decks in the same commander.
    Blue is the only obvious color in her scheme. She is at least that for sure. Black and White are more difficult to confirm because there isn't enough resolution to rule out glare or shadows. She's a Gold card, so at least Dimir. But for sure Blue+

    posted a message on Wasitora and O-Kagachi possibly in Commander 2017! Who else?
    If Humans and ideally Wizards I am hoping for Choryu and Jenrik.
    If she is indeed Esper as I suspect I am hoping for Cosper Lowe as well. He may be in the Mardu Vampire deck if it has a Human sub-theme.
    Callaphe would be nice from Theros as Human Scout or even Wizard depending on what she is.
