There are a fair number of people who have been very vocal about how obsequious they've been to elves and goblins in the past, so giving them a break is likely both for flavor reasons and also marketing so that people don't continue to get burnt out on what are the most popular characteristic races.Quote from javert »About time we get more elves, they have been shunned a lot of recent sets for little reason; although this Joraga extermination thing may me fear we could only see one legendary creature described as The Last Elf.
(I know there also the Mul Daya, but I suspect they look too unconventional for WotC's tastes and they seem to be opposite to Nissa).

All the things he does are born from a selfish place, even if they benefit others, and he's a bit too cavalier about casual murder and eating other people for the "greater good" to shine through.

He did encounter some of the brood doing a corpsehatch out of a dragon. That's about when Ugin starting really chatting into his ear.

Unfortunately no. When asked about it Doug just put us off saying "we'll explain later" and hinted it should be coming around about the time Sarkhan learns of it in DTK.
Okay, so what about Sarkhan's trip back? Did they explain how that works yet in comparison to Urza and Karn? From what I recall, it took a lot of energy to send Karn back just a short period of time, and he needed to be silver to survive the trip. I hadn't even thought about that until the video that one person posted.

and very outlandish and baseless at that.Quote from Jenrik »I like the prospect of Heliod's heroic son as a PW despite not being a god. It's very Greek too, but speculation at best.
So, it very definitely does not belong here.

No, they were physically displaced in time. (for purposes of flavor)

Ashiok isn't a zombie. If anything, Ashiok would qualify as a horror or nightmare.Quote from Duke Daemon »I hope not, it took way too long to finally get a kor walker. Tired of always getting human walkers. It's as if they are special and so get all the good things. I mean we finally got a zombie walker (i assume due to flavour) in Theros, Ashiok.

Gideon isn't likely to be red/white even if they keep aligning him to red/white factions.Quote from PiscesJazz13 »
but then again, Sorin has no business being white either so....

The gods, as we know them, don't function that way. If Gideon had been created by any of the gods, he would be a Nyxborn, but quite frankly, we have no reason to believe the gods are even capable of normal reproduction.Quote from Jenrik »So I was reading more about this on Reddit and I really like the idea proposed there about Gideon never knowing his father and possibly being the son of Heliod, like Hercules was of Zeus in a way, since he is holding a spear like his in the new art. It might explain his powers, since doesn't Gideon have some kind of immunity to physical force or something? IDK. It would be pretty interesting nonetheless.
except of course the fact that the Order was based entirely around the Purifying Fire on Regatha.Quote from Vorthospike »People keep saying the "Order of Heliud" isn't about Heliod but honestly a one letter retcon seems extremely likely now that we know he's from Theros.
