    Is Tarkir going to get a novel set like the last 2 blocks did or has WotC given up on the short novels?
    They've shifted their storytelling to Uncharted Realms in an attempt to reach a wider audience.


    Having said that, the storytelling pieces of Uncharted Realms are not always strictly canon. Wizards have yet to announce a Kahns block short story/e-novel and haven't yet announced that they're stopping them either. This could be because any such announcement may give away the block storyline. If we're lucky we still may get an e-novel in time for the third set. Here's hoping.

    About that actually:

    Tormenting Voice. The Ghost has been confirmed to be Ugin, Sarkhan is quite obviously himself. There's your evidence. The Planar Chaos dragons are 100% irrelevant to everything outside of Time Spiral block, let alone this story line. Barinellos can you lock this thread?

    I would like to, but it isn't my section so I don't have the tools to.

    I was using Occam's Razor. It is far simpler for a hale and healthy dragon to send a message, as opposed to one that is grievously wounded, or dead.

    It is far easier for a character already involved in the story with motivations and goals to be involved with the story rather than a non-entity getting drawn into the narrative for no apparent reason.

    I wonder if this "Alternate Present" thing that the Temur believe in is like Agyrem from original Ravnica. I mean, I understand that it's involved with the weird time travel the plot involves, but it does have an odd similarity.


    I believe it is an Agyrem of a more sinister nature...that being to draw in the Eldrazi Titans with the presence of all those high-mana dragonstorms, then trap them within the pocket plane. The constantly spawning storms would keep them busy. Leaving Ugin to send Sorin and whomever else on wild goosechases across the multiverse while he does whatever potentially devious spirit dragons do.

    The question becomes why Ugin didn't volunteer Tarkir for the Eldrazi in the first place.
    Because he specifically avoided it altogether and chose Zendikar to throw under the bus, strong-arming Nahiri into sacrificing her own world.

    But they're only going back 1000 years. That isn't even reaching as far back as the Ice Age.


    That is one-thousand years in the timeline of Tarkir, not Dominaria, and it would be a severe strain on suspension of disbelief for time to flow at the same rate across all planes of the multiverse.

    As the other two have pointed out, they are NOT having time flow differently on other planes. It would void the entire narrative if the planes did not share a collective time since the main characters in the storyline are Planeswalkers.

    The card doesn't directly state "Ugin is doing this." This could be an illusion sent by Intet.
    No... it couldn't. There's no reason nor premise that would lead you to that conclusion.

    Bolas has a lot of copies. Ugin can destroy one only.
    There's only one Bolas.

    I believe that these dragons will be revealed to be the ones behind the voice pushing Sarkhan to resurrect Ugin.
    Then you would believe completely wrong, because it was Ugin pushing Sarkhan to go resurrect him.

    In doing so, these dragons would be able to remanifest on Dominaria, and due to the altered time streams, would take the place of the old primevals. Then these new primevals would be able to gather their dragon allies spawned by the dragonstorms to launch a preemptive attack on Bolas when he returns to Dominaria during the events of the Time Spiral block. Witness the beginning of Ugin's interplanar empire and the death of Nicol Bolas.
    And you are FURTHER wrong in the fact that there are not and never have been dragonstorms on Dominaria.

    I can't wait. So there's a very good chance of these dragons coming back since they are not technically wedge (RWB, URW, BGU, GUR, WBG) dragons due to their color alignment on the card and primary colors designated by their activated abilities.
    There are literally no chances of these dragons coming in anywhere in Tarkir.

    This is definitely a rare opportunity for creative to start filling in some of these holes; you can't really do time travel stories too often.
    But they're only going back 1000 years. That isn't even reaching as far back as the Ice Age.
