I had actually put a preliminary version of this yesterday after reading about how reveals would start next week. Thanks, and I'll let you be first Name and Number crunch on the new site
EDIT: For speculation, who do you all think the other walkers will be.
White - unsure, hopefully someone new, though since it will be exploring Chandra's story they may use it as a last chance to print a Gideon card
Blue - Hopefully new, though will likely be Jace
Black - Liliana, could be someone else
Green - Almost assuredly Nissa, especially given the element focus of two of the Chandra cards
God... this will be the last number crunch on MTG Salvation. Let's go with a bang!
On the Planeswalker front I would say Nissa for green is a given. The question is if they introduce new people for the Netflix series. On mono black I can see Davriel and for white Kashmina or Teyo. I mean they could flesh out the newcommers a bit.
White- Teyo? I mean he’s close to the gatewatch in a way. To me he seemed like a younger and smaller version of Gideon. I can see him being the new main white colored Planeswalker and was surprised he wasn’t a rare, especially since he had a POV in the novel.
Blue- I can see Jace because well he’s Jace and pretty much wizards poster boy! Although I can see Kasmina. I don’t have a source (or remember one) but I thought Maro said or someone else in wizards that they were hoping to include Kasmina a bit more soon so I can see her reintroduced here.
Red- Chandra, Chandra, and Chandra!
Black- hmmm. I’d say too soon to really bring Lilana. That said we almost always see Lilana in the coresets. I wanna guess we will see Sorin or Ob Nixilous. Sorin is usually involved in stories a lot and well Ob Nixilous ran off elsewhere so I can see him. Just a guess though this by no means means we see Ob Nix soon.
Green- Given Chandra and Nissa are lovers! Nissa!
3 other “food for thoughts”:
1. White could be Ajani. I can see him trying to help Chandra out with coping. He is a mentor!
2. Bit of a stretch hence I didn’t mention it. Dovin or Tezzeret. can be monoblue. I mean they are arch enemies of Chandra, especially after Kalendash!
3. Even more of a stretch than last point, Wouldn’t a mono black Tibalt be interesting. I really wanna say that with the comics that Tibalt May show up but that would mean he’s either monoblack, mono red and we get two red characters, or multicolored which is doable considering what we saw with Bolas last time!
I assume white would be Gideon or Ajani. If it is themed around the story of Chandra than both make a lot of sense. Gideon and Chandra were good friends and had some adventures together with the Gatewatch. And we saw in the comics that Ajani was with Chandra in the end. I don't think that they can print another red Planeswalker so Tibalt seems unlikely. Even as Rakdos Planeswalker and he doesn't seems to be mono black. Ob Nixilis or Liliana are more likely. For Green, I don't know if Chandra ever met Garruk and Nissa seems like the perfect candidate. Jace and Chandra started as foes and ended as friends. I think they can print some cards that picture this development. So he fits. Didn't they fight against Sarkhan (still mind controlled by bolas)? He was red/black at that time, so unlikely. And Ramaz (I believe he was Temur colored) manipulate her to find the dragon fire scroll.
The bigger question for me is: when do we find out the fall set? On one hand I’m thinking we should at least know it by the time that previews are done. On the other hand, I’m starting to feel like Wizards are going to start doing things last minute so we may get it a week before fall previews from what I know. I’m really curious where we are going next and the wait is starting to kill me!
Edit: I just realized I posted this in probably the wrong place. Sorry everyone in this thread.
They used to do an annual 'announcement day' in mid-ish may every year and that would be where they would reveal the fall set's plane. They did not do one this year so it's anyone's guess when and how they'll do the announce.
(baseless speculation speaking) Maybe they delayed the announce until during/after M20 spoilers because it implies some plot development that they don't want revealed yet. Like when they concealed the Eldritch Moon symbol for so much longer than usual (the name of War of the Spark was also kept under wraps longer than most sets' names). Given M20's focus on the life and times of Chandra, maybe M20 cards reference some events on, say, Regatha, or Kephalai - which they don't want people thinking about yet.
