WotC has confirmed they will not be doing 'shake-up bannings' and that 'we plan to manage the format as we do now'.

The reason for the walk back may be because of the introduction of the play design team.

More than one plane can have dinosaurs. Muraganda was Stone Age World, which is wildly different from Mesoamerican Pirates World.
It's possible, but unlikely I think. If they were going to do Muraganda. I think they would have done Muraganda. I'm skeptical that Muraganda could be exciting enough with dinosaurs having already been a thing. The addition of ice age megafauna plus cavemen stuff maybe could sell it, but that could still be in Ixalan, we don't know yet.

Muraganda is correct. And yes, Ixalan appears to be the replacement for Muraganda.

Though I don't really like the idea of mixing three worlds from short list into one - at the first glance it feels like mash up, you know, "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" and so. But it can be better than expected - less specific stereotype worlds, more original ones.
Pirates and jungle tribes are real world linked, so that should fit perfectly fine. Dinosaurs makes sense for a tropical adventure and exploration world. It's less of a mashup than it might seem and more of a world of different aspects.
Jun 14, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from TearingEons »Nice trailer! Loving the look of the insectile horror.
Also, is the intro Bolas card called Nicol Bolas, the Destroyer?
The deceiver. I made a thread about the card and the abilities and cost have been determined from the image, but the loyalty is hidden so we'll have to wait on that.
Jun 14, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Honor Basquiat »Don't forget half of these cards are going to be new.
Can we expect new legendary creatures to supplement commander or would that be too complicated? Is there a precedent for legendary creatures being created or reprinted for core sets?
Yes. M2015 had a number.
Jun 14, 2017Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Yes. Approximately at least.
"The set will be roughly half new cards and half reprints"
Jun 14, 2017I'm interested to see what the new core sets are going to be like. They are apparently more focused on newer players, this may be related to the fact that they will "also have a stronger integration with the sample decks, Planeswalker Decks, and Deck Builder's Toolkit, allowing for an easier transition between the products".Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jun 14, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from GuildCaster »+3 each opponent loses three life unless that player sacrifices a nonland permanent or discards a card.
-3 Destroy target creature. Draw a card.
-11 Nicol Bolas deals 7 damage to each opponent. You draw 7 cards,
Yeah, that looks about right.
Jun 14, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Xenocyde3000 »So nothing too surprising in the announcements today, except for the new UN set and the FTV flippers. We kinda already knew Ixalan has dinos, however we're getting pirates as well (wooo?). Rivals was clearly the second set. It was inevitable to return to Dominaria for the 25th anniversary, everyone could figure that much Iconic Masters is kinda confirmed to be underwhelming because they're also releasing Masters 25 next spring. Duel deck with goblins again? Meh. Merfolks are fine, but they could've chosen some other tribal race instead of goblins tbh. The dame reavling stuff for Ixalan still wants to say something about a product related to the 25th celebration but the guy stops her, wonder what that is...
It's the unset. Mark reveals it at the end.
There will be more at Hascon, but presumably card and set info, not product announcements.
Jun 14, 2017Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from nightwyrm »Dinosaur better be its own creature type. No more of this lizard/beast BS.
I'd be perfectly okay with something like 'saurian' instead, but either way a new type is probably warranted.
As a big fan of paleobiology, I am a big fan of realistic dinosaurs. I also like how they fit with a tropical mesoamerica based setting.

Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver ( )
Planeswalker- Bolas (M)
+3: Each opponent loses 3 life unless that player sacrifices a nonland permanent or discards a card.
-3: Destroy target creature. Draw a card.
-11: Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver deals 7 damage to each opponent. You draw 7 cards.
Jun 13, 2017Rivals of Ixalan may be some new bonus sheet, simply a marketing thing in the manner of a tagline, or a name they experimented with for the first set.Posted in: Rumor Mill Archive
I also doubt it's the second set.
Could however be a placeholder for the second set name, which will be called Rivals of -, but they haven't locked in the name for what the Rivals are of.
