Quote from theMarc »Quote from TheIronCaptain »Ramaz will see print in our 2015 block. Since Ramaza hails from Kaldheim, a Norse-sounding plane (and Maro mentioned a Viking-themed set was in the makings via his tumblr), I expect he will show up on a post-Eldrazi Zendikar. Our Vikings will be a coalition of folk who held to their old cultures while much of Zendikar's populace have converted to a religion glorifying the elves as gods (an analogue to Charlemange's Christianity expansionism)for Nissa having seemingly defeated the Eldrazi. Nissa didn't defeat the Eldrazi. She let them escape Zendikar and set out as a pilgrim to attempt to heal the land. Over the course of her mission, Nissa learns to bond with the lands, embracing her role as the Worldwaker, and witnesses evils committed in her name, and against those who worship her (and the other elves, but mostly her). This provides a test of Nissa's elfcentricism. Ramaz will be providing the Viking nations with access to longships crafted specifically to navigate the turbulent terrain left behind by the Eldrazis' rampage. In the set's climax, it will turn out that Ramaza is seeking noteworthy individuals from across the planes at Bolas's behest, in a scheme similar to Urza's Bloodlines project, but without the genetic engineering. Rather, Bolas is seeking individuals forged through magical engineering. You see, one of the Viking characters will be the first to join a group created by Bolas to serve as planar regents in his new Empire.
Is there any basis to any of this, or did you just feel like sharing your fanfic with us?
Nope, he is just making this up, just as 90% of everything he posts. You should see his posts in Storyline...
Quote from TheIronCaptain »Yes, there is a basis to this. I found it digging around where I shouldn't have.
Darkest depths of Magic General, I assume...
I would very much like to see Narset ascended.
In short, I think that with Sarkhan Vol being the central character in this block, having Ramaz in this block would be one deranged dragon-related shaman character too many.
