Ixalan's transform cards have all been transform into land.
So by that logic, perhaps Elena turns into the temple?

Nov 10, 2017Hey I was just wondering: with the new Un-Set next on the dockett, would it work to have them have their own plane and general story? maybe something small and open-ended like the plane for Conspiracy sets. and if they do introduce new planes, would they be off-limits for Creative and the main story? the multiverse is vast, after all.Posted in: Magic Storyline
and if they do get their own plane, wouldn't that mean they get native planeswalkers?
what say you?
Nov 8, 2017Wow. this is a pretty deep accounting for the history of the Vamps. seems like a lot more thought was put into explaining them than the other tribes. Now the question is "how much of this history will be utilized in the story?"Posted in: Magic Storyline
Oct 26, 2017Red follows its heart, and true creativity can come from the heart as well as the mind.Posted in: Magic Storyline
every creator worth his or her salt pours their hearts and souls into their best creations.
feelings and emotional reactions are often the best source for inspiration.
also, red may be the color of chaos, but it is also the color of loyalty and bonding. Red loves harder and more fiercely than any of the other colors. if a red character is in your corner, he or she will die for you...and woe be to anyone that crosses you, because your beef is theirs.
this may be part of the reason why Angrath is able to captain his own pirate ship, and inspire a crew to run with him. they know he's got their back.

Still counts. Best believe Lili still thinks of Jace as HERS, and she will be jealous if this Vraska+Jace ship continues after Ixalan.
Oct 25, 2017Looks like we have our first real hint at who he is:Posted in: Storyline Speculation
from the mothership:
5) What plane is Angrath originally from, and why did he travel to Ixalan?
Magic Story Team: Angrath was a family man on a plane we haven't been to yet. He has two adorable daughters, and whenever he wasn't at work as a blacksmith he would travel the Multiverse to bring them back presents. He went away on a weekend holiday years ago and ended up on Ixalan, and when he tried to return home he could not.
Oct 17, 2017Posted in: Magic StorylineQuote from OathboundOne »Quote from 5colors »Quote from SimicNuggets »The ironic thing about all this Gatewatch talk is, aren't they (creative) trying to minimize their presence overall?
Nope. On the creative side we won't be see every member showing up as a big group like we have. The Gatewatch are the protagonists and while we might get small stories that not have them in it or having them play more of a background, over all we will be we will get more gatewatch storylines then not.
To expand on this, the Gatewatch will continue to be our story protagonists for the foreseeable future, it's their presence on cards that is being pulled back on. Players were getting tired of Gatewatch members automaticaly eating half of all possible planeswalker slots in the physical product. (And having entire hand worth of versions in standard at one time.)
I'm thinking they are going to take the MCU approach: split these guys up and do more stories focused on individual development, all of which building up to the next big GateWatch throwdown - most likely a rematch with Bolas. this way when you have your next big Gatewatch story, it will resonate more since you haven't seen them all fighting together in a while.
EDIT - I posted that before i saw the Admin's post telling us to stick to Ixalan. my bad.
so let me say this to tie it in: if this were the MCU, Ixalan would be Iron Man 3.Jace, Like Tony, is forced to survive without all of his "toys" and has to grow and adapt as a character separate of his superteam buddies. and the next storyarc (Dominaria) we're assuming is going to be centered around Ajani but feature a bunch of other major characters, a la Cap's WinterSoldier movie.

Also, after reading too much Toky Ghoul (all hail the one eyed king) i feel like Vraska is going to die (in TG whenever a character is suddently given too much backstory, usually means that character is going to die soon)
They are adding depth to her, retconning a bit, and making her more and more an (anti)hero instead of a villain. More than death, I smell Oath of Vraska in the future.
This. in comic books, if a character is given a lot of backstory, it means he or she (or it) is going to be a featured character going forward.
As I've posted before, Vraska being part of the Gatewatch would fill a lot of roles in both the group dynamic and the story.
Oct 11, 2017For some reason, this setup reminds me of The Dragon's Maze on Ravnica. for some reason, I can't pinpoint why.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Also, the winged beats people are describing is starting to look more and more like Ugin. WOuldn't be surprised if there were a swerve, tho.
Oct 9, 2017Posted in: Magic StorylineQuote from Yatsufusa »Vraska here is showing the caring, nurturing side of G which is often just written off G characters as unimportant/uninteresting regardless of the character's other alignments. Nissa does display hints of this, but its mostly to elementals and leylines we're even less invested in and when it comes to character-relationship, she's the one who needs the nurturing instead, so it's admittedly deservedly overlooked there to some degree. But with Vraska it's there and it's pretty authentic as far as the story goes (for now at least).
small argument on the Nissa thing. i think she showed quite a bit of caring and nurturing during Kaladesh block. her treatment of Chandra, and in the end, of Yahenni, showed a very caring side of Green.

Oct 11, 2017Kamigawa is one of MTG's most beloved stories for a reason (actually, many reasons). Toshiro is a well-written, likeable antihero, and the war between Konda and O-Kagachi is suitably epic in scope. the books also do a great job of incorporating many of the cards from the set into the story.Posted in: Articles
Not to mention, much of the flavor text on the cards allude to a history of the war that the books can only scratch the surface of telling. It was a masterpiece, and this synopsis is a great way to bring those that missed the books up to speed.
