  • posted a message on Ramaz in Fate Reforge as Planeswaker
    Quote from theMarc »
    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...

    Yes, there is a basis to this. I found it digging around where I shouldn't have.



    Darkest depths of Magic General, I assume...

    Well, Ramaz won't be in FRF, but MaRo sure seems to be implying he could be in DTK... (admittedly it could just be some other wedge card, possibly some other wedge PW, but why would they go for some other wedge PW rather than Ramaz?)


    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.

  • posted a message on Allied fetches in FRF with alternate art?
    Quote from Dio »
    In the art for the KTK fetches, they all feature skeletons of dragons, but since these are the same locations in the past, wouldn't they show dragons that are alive? Since we got refuges with new art I think we'll see new art for the trilands too.


    It is EXPLICITLY said in the article that informs us about the lifelands and fetches in FRF boosters that the fetches are the KTK versions, down to the set symbol.

    Already reported and discarded. It is from Conspiracy (non-updated frame without holostamp). Somebody who created the ad just sticked random cool card on the poster.

  • posted a message on The Kahns in Dragons of Tarkir
    TheIronCaptain, I do not know what you are smoking, but it must be something quite drastic.

    First of all - the Arcana is just a re-issue of an Arcana from a wedge week. Wedge week = wedge dragons.

    Second - Dominaria and Tarkir are two different planes. Wedge "primevals" are from alternate Dominaria.

    Third - Volvers were magically altered mutants, by-products of the Rathi Overlay on Dominaria during the Invasion.

    In short - your post makes zero sense. About as much as your nonsenses in Storyline forum.

    1) No wedge cards in DTK
    2) Wedge dragons are from alternate timeline Dominaria. DOMINARIA IS NOT TARKIR.



    But is a Tarkir a Dominaria?


    No.

    I will be VERY disappointed if Narset's several times hinted "greater destiny" was just covering Sarkhan's ass in a (though very) critical moment and dying in the process.

    And since you mentioned it - a true "badass Jeskai kung-fu master" - and a khan in addition - should NEVER be beaten, moreso mortally wounded/killed by one suprising sword strike. It seems more like she ALLOWED it to happen, knowing that it will motivate Sarkhan...and maybe helps her to ignite the spark.

    Yeah, these could be the PLEASE GOD I HOPE NOT TO GET mythics of MMA2, like the Dragon Spirits in MMA. Though I am a little bit biased in this issue because I got friggin' four mythics in my MMA box - all Dragon Spirits (and to add insult to injury, the only one I did NOT get was Kokusho) :-P


    Why do you not wish for those cards to be in this set? What is wrong with them?


    My comment was meant in the sense that when you managed to bought a box of MMA, you hoped at least for some nice payout, because majority the mythics fetched a nice price tag. Only the five Dragon Spirits were about 5 bucks (Kokusho around 7 at best), and Progenitus was the next cheapest.

    I got Keiga, Yosei, Jugan, Ryusei and Progenitus Smile I would be definitely more satisfied with Goyf, Bob, Clique and both Swords instead.

    If they include these (and I severely doubt it, because they are three-color, would need support, etc...) and you would hate to get them as your mythics.

    Some of the cards that I wish to see in this set are:


    -The cycle of "noble creatures" from Shards of Alara (i.e., empyrial archangel, sphinx sovereign, prince of thralls, hellkite overlord, and godsire)
