Quote from void_nothing »Neat art, but the perspective seems off. A normal leonin shouldn't be much bigger than Human-derived Eternals, right?
Quote from 13055 »Nice to see that the plot that literally everyone who read anything over the last two years guessed is correct. Bolas uses the Bridge to bring an invading army of Eternals to Ravnica.
Quote from Flamebuster »Wait a minute...replicas of old allies? Does that mean we'll get artifact or illusions of former PWs or non-PW legendary characters in this set too? I wonder if Illusion will be a big part of it then in that sense...
Quote from 5colors »The exception that we know so far is Yanggu able bring Mowu with him between planes.
Quote from void_nothing »Quote from 5colors »The exception that we know so far is Yanggu able bring Mowu with him between planes.We know why this is? Post-Mending you can usually only 'walk with your personal effects, not even one other person or animal. I guess it's just a consequence of Yanggu's specific mage profile, and how that interacts with his spark?
Of course we all know the out-of-universe explanation is "cute puppy".
Quote from SyntheticDreamer »I mean, is Mowu just a dog (doubtful given that he can shift from "good boy" to "holy crap run away") or some kind of familiar that Jiang Yanggu can conjure at will? If he's just a normal dog, then he shouldn't survive planeswalking given that even the food Huatli took with her to Kaladesh was reduced to ash after she 'walked.
gophilipbowles asked: There's a rule that planeswalkers can't planeswalk carrying other living organisms with them, but the new art shows Huatli with an Ixalan raptor, Sarkhan with (possibly non-Ravnican) dragons, and Jiang with his dog. Is this just artistic licence or will an upcoming lore change allow characters to planeswalk with animals?
A: Jiang is able to planeswalker with his dog. That’s part of his planeswalking ability. Huatli and Sarkhan are summoning creatures like you or I do in the game.
Quote from RedGauntlet »I wonder if every walker will have a creature or other type of card related to them?

If he's just a normal dog, then he shouldn't survive planeswalking given that even the food Huatli took with her to Kaladesh was reduced to ash after she 'walked.It's clear to me that he's some kind of familiar, fwiw, I'm just puzzled as to what his nature is. Right now I'm going with him being an otherwise normal dog with a mystical bond to Yanggu, so that planeswalking treats them as part of a whole... or something.
Quote from Raptorchan »Oh come on. We have a mere 2/2 cat beating the crap out of these nasty 4/4 zombies. Isn't it great on its own?
Quote from void_nothing »Well, to be fair, just because they're Eternal doesn't mean they're 4/4. They could just as well be those crappy 1/3 ones.
