I like how their starting to make Huatli question her way of life, at least to extent. There's finally some character growth. Also, I predict she'll planeswalk away at the end of the story in search of the "golden city(kaladesh)" she actually saw in her vision.
Edit: Would she make a good fit for Tamiyo's story circle?

Dec 26, 2017I want to see more of Mavren Fein in this set. Perhaps he and whatever group of soldiers he brought along would run into Vona. I really want to see how his more pious persona clashes with Vona's bloodthirst and likely blasphemy.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Dec 18, 2017The booklets don't typically include much more info then what you can find on the site, at least in the decks I've bought. I heard that most commanders are intentionally left vague so writers don't have to restrict themselves when making new planes or integrating the commanders into later stories.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Nonetheless, it enrages me when I don't know what plane a commander hails from.
Dec 3, 2017I don't really see the need for this. I was probably going to make a un-commander deck anyway, as was most of my playgroup. I just assumed we would only play in situations weere we agree to do so, and use our actual serious decks elsewhere. I imagine most of the community is the same way. But hey, its still cool that they are officially legal, if only for a little while.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Oct 17, 2017Do you guys think it could be possible that it was Bolas who left the sun one the plane instead of Ugin? The anti-planeswalking spell could just be a way to ensure it doesn't get moved without his approval.Posted in: Magic Storyline

Therefore I can planeswalk while sitting on the ground of one plane, and haul it along to another plane.

Zendikar actually does have a reputation among planeswalkers enough that several natives are familiar with them, so it might be more of a "remote and dangerous" backwater rather than "obscure" backwater.
Does Amonkhet still count as backwater now that Bolas has turned it into a launching pad for his zombie army?
I imagine it being backwater is beneficial to Bolas. If it's out of the way, its less likely for planeswalkers to show up and interfere, whether on purpose or accidentally.

I don't think this is a fair comparison. If this is your complaint, it should be dinosaurs you have a problem with, not pirates. Based on the setting, they pirates are way more appropriate than the dinos.
My gripe isn't that pirates don't mesh with the setting. My gripe is that (in my opinion) dinosaurs and pirates don't mesh well together in this world.
As others have said, mesoamericans and feathered dinosaurs are actually a really cool combination.
Mesoamericans and pirates/conquistadors would also work well enough.
Heck, dinosaurs and pirates might work as some sort of king-kong-esque setting. (Though conquistadors wouldn't fit here well.)
But all these things together? To me it's just a big smudge of incoherence.
But I think the worst to me is something on a meta-level: Ixalan has massively reduced the chances of a future dinosaur setting or marine/pirate setting. Both of which I think would work well enough as full fledged settings on their own. :/
I don't think it reduces the chances of seeing dinosaurs again at all. As long as they fit flavorfully with world we are on, its fine. Also, I doubt they would be able to make an entire world based on dinosaurs. They could be an aspect of the plane, like they are on Ixalan, but since they are just another type of creature, it would be hard to make any sort of good story conflict. It would be like Battle for Zendikar again; characters fighting a mindless force of nature, which doesn't really equate to an interesting villian. That was partly why BFZ kind of sucked. Thus in Ixalan, they have multiple faction fighting each other with the backdrop of a dino world.

To answer your question, some Phyrexians had gun-like weapons during the invasion of Dominaria, but other than that and the laser-like ray cannons that Phyrexian skyships and the Weatherlight had, not really, no.
Cannon were also used on Kaladesh. The COnsulate's flagship actually did utilize them(though not necessarily firing) in the story at one point after the Gatewatch appeared.

I mean, for Sorin it made a little sense, but as one of Black's iconic creatures it makes about as much sense as white demons or red sphinxes.
Ummm.... Butcher of the Horde and Arjun, the Shifting Flame?

That would be hilarious! However, I think he would be far more interested in "acquiring" Darretti.
Jul 22, 2017Charlito posted a message on Commander 2017 announcement -- Only 4 decks, based on popular tribes, not color wheel!I'm just glad none of them were zombies or elves. But I'm happy to see vampires, and that art looks amazing!Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jul 9, 2017Posted in: Magic StorylineQuote from SimicNuggets »Is she though, is she? Hazoret would have made a cooler speedster planeswalker imo. After the greatest lie she's ever known, and the fall of her siblings, her spark ignites. And we got huge doggo PW.
But, I do understand beings of mana cannot be PWs sad. Tragic.
I'm curious to know if Xenagos lost his spark after he became a god. Theran gods aren't like Amonkhet gods, plus Xenagos wasn't normal either. However you would think a mana connected being like a god planewalked, they would just die or lose power, since they aren't on their home plane.
