Jan 17, 2018This story is absolutely delicious.Posted in: Magic Storyline
The Ugin theory is given some credence after all. Bolas does NOT know that Ugin still lives, and Ugin wants to keep it that way. but Ugin somehow knowing about Ixalan is a revelation.
Angarth is awesome, and Huatl has accepted that there are worlds outside of her own.
Azor's entrance was as big and epic as it needed to be, and showing no fear of Vraska's stone gaze was bawse.
Jace realizing just how toxic his relationship with Lili has been is an awesome setup for future interactions between the two.
and every time Jace and Vraska talk to each other like two people that genuinely like each other makes y heart ache. I hope in a future block these two get another chance.
Jan 16, 2018People are totally missing the obvious next step in the Nicol bolas plan for multiverse domination:Posted in: Storyline Speculation
I mean, think about it. When you put on your socks this morning, how much thought did you put into choosing your socks?did you really take the time to decide whether to put on the light socks or the dark ones, or the ones with the bland gray pattern on the heel and toe? I bet you mindlessly just grabbed some socks and put them on without putting any thought into it. What you don't realize is that the decision on what socks to wear was made for you by the grand puppeteer, as a way of preparing you for your role in his upcoming conquest. You are being conditioned and you don't even know it.
This is all Part of Bolas' master plan.
and you won't realize it until it's too late.
Jan 12, 2018Posted in: Magic StorylineQuote from mapccu »Quote from Etherium Sage »Quote from orlouge82 »Just finished reading the story (was away from my desk for most of the day yesterday), and I'm just blown away at the quality of the writing in the Jace/Vraska part (the Kumena stuff was more of the same corny chaff from Creative, to be honest).
They are one of the most -- if not THE most -- heartfelt and believable romances ever depicted in MtG lore. Not only is there a genuine emotional connection between the two, but each plays a positive role in the other's life, with each helping the other to be a better person.
I was never a Jace fan, but after his ordeal on Ixalan and his relationship with Vraska, he's one of my favorite members of both the Gatewatch (sorry Jace, Ajani is still #1), and all neowalkers in the current stable. And it's thanks to Vraska. The time he spent with Vraska made him a far more likable character and generally just a better person.
Ironically, we have Bolas to thank for all of this from a story point of view, as his mental attack on Jace inadvertently made the latter planeswalk randomly to Ixalan, and he intentionally sent Vraska there to fetch the Sun.
So, in a pretty disturbing sort of way, Bolas is the best thing to happen to Jace.
Bolas for best wing man award 2018. He knows lili isn't good for him either.
Can you imagine Bolas as the best man at the Jace/Vraska wedding?
Imagine the embarrassing best man speech he'd give...
Jan 10, 2018New story is up, and....Posted in: Magic Storyline
They took Kumena off the board pretty quickly. I thought he'd get a bit more screentime than that.
As for Jce and Vraska; my heart aches for both of these guys. I give all kudos to MTG creative for making me truly care about these two. Their development is some of the best writing these guys have done in a LOOOOOOOONG time. (EDIT: at least, since Yaheeni)
I'm really hoping that after we know what's going to happen actually happens, Jace at least allows Vraska to remember that he is not her enemy.
Well done story all-around.
Jan 3, 2018Azor will regain his spark. if not in this set, then in a future one.Posted in: Magic Storyline
MTG Vorthos completists will demand an Azor PW card incessantly, because we want a card for EVERY Planeswalker we see referenced in story, and especially planeswalkers that aren't aren't planeswalking anymore (re: Ob Nix, Ugin and Nahiri).
Dec 25, 2017Posted in: Magic StorylineQuote from Bartel_Runeaxe »I hope they don't pull a "lol, Time Spiral Jodah was an alternate one, real one is gone/dead/shoved somewhere and forgotten" on us.
They were already hinting at that at the end of Future Sight. Saying that the Jodah from Spiral block could be from an alternate timeline left them a convenient loophole to exploit if they ever needed his appearance to not be canon. You know, like they just did with Jaya.
Nov 20, 2017Okay, I feel like a moron right n ow, but I honestly can't find the ninja in the art for Masterful Ninja. The guy that wrote the preview article said if you stare at it long enough the ninja will appear, but I still don't see it.Posted in: Magic General
I thought it could be possible that it was I, the card viewer, looking at a scene through the ninja's eyes. so the card are was from the ninja's POV. but I thought that was too abstract.
then I saw the curtains, and it appeared to me as if there were feet poking out from under one of them (the blue one on the left) but I'm not 100% sure of that.
can anybody help me out on this? here is the art.
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?

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.
