Quote from Ajduk »Quote from Jay13x »the story spotlights are numbered, so:Quote from Ajduk »Quote from Caranthir »Three out of four known cards hint at really NOT positive development for the good guys. I was wondering what the heck is Ajduk talking about
I wonder what exactly is meant to be going on Dark Intimations....except of it all being a huge callback to Cruel Ultimatum, including the metal mimicking the silhouette of Bolas's horns and the person depicted being Tezzeret.
And yeah, Tezz looks pretty diabolic at the Battle card. Definitely better than his PW deck version art.
Pia's Revolution heavily hints on Pia saving the day.
If Pia dies in the process I honestly wouldn't see it as something negative. At first I was hoping that Tezzeret kills her in a way that scars
Chandra for life and adds a second dimension to her one dimensional character, but if Pia ends up sacrificing herself for the bigger picture
that will make Chandra even worse...full of determination just like her mom was...even more cocky and me regretting even more that the Creative
didn't have the balls to make Ugin just eat her when she talked back at him like an edgy teenager.
Disallow's ''negative'' vibe is meaningless since Gatewatch members are immune to death via plot armor so I wouldn't count it as a negative development.
We know that Chandra and the guy with the best title ever need to face off eventually and that it has to be dramatic because their confrontation is a big
deal for her character development (I admit, I laughed a bit while writing those last two words).
Battle at the Bridge hints at nothing really other than the already expected confrontation against Tezzeret.
Hearth of Karn...sorry...Kiran is probably what will end up saving the day. It doesn't look like a doomsday machine to me.
Dark Intimations is the card which heavily hints that something quite bad is about to happen. It indeed is the one truly negative hint.
The key factor in it hinting at a negative ending is whether it happens before or after Pia's Revolution.
I still like the story, though!
I'm glad that we won't be seeing phyrexia being defeated here on Kaladesh. That was my biggest concern. I will take Bolas losing twice in
back to back blocks over the pyrexia losing on a plane filled with artifacts only if we finally get some explanation and what has he
been doing all this time and why?
Now, onto something more important...who is the standing figure in the art of Dark Intimations. It doesn't look like Tezzeret to me.
Unknown Event 1
Battle at the Bridge
It's looking like there will be some sparking event, then Pia leads the revolution, Chandra confronts Baral, the Gatewatch confront Tezzeret, and they fail, with Tezzeret's plan coming to fruition.
Dark Intimation does seem like it's Tezzeret. It's his jacket, gray/white hair, and if you look close you can see the etherium arm.
Maybe Dark Intimations doesn't even take place on Kaladesh? Maybe Tezzeret flees to Amonketh and sees Bolas there.
Well, I thought about that as well, but it looks like a Kaladesh golden metal structures on both sides (my first thought was a crashed skyship).
