Quote from TheWardenYou had me at "Camel Shaman."
Quote from Creedmoor »After reading the most recent announcement it appears we will get a series of Commander decks to go along Lake of Behemoths. It was mentioned that Kiora will be one of the Commanders. Any speculation on what these decks will look like? Apparently there is 71 new cards as well.
Kiora will likely be a Blue Green Planeswalker Commander focusing on big splashy cards, ramp, and her obvious signature sea monsters.
Quote from Magiqmaster »It's Lair of the Behemoths, FYI...
Quote from Mishotem »I don't remember Kiora being mentioned at all. Did you get Kiora confused with "Ikoria", the name of the plane?
And they're doing five decks, tied to the Ikoria set. I'd be surprised if they're not just five mono-colored decks.
Quote from gupp7 »if there's not a large monster theme for each, i'll be a little sad.
dragons seem like a shoe in.... RGB for sure (main:red)
giants is one we've seen in lorwyn....WR and realmcloaked giant would be a good fit. main: white
krakens in blue? kiora has a number of tribes that she's got affinity with; .serpents, octopi...even merfolk, though those arent "monsters"
green....probably hyrdras. we'll probably see more hydras in theros.
Quote from AdmiralBurbia »Would Cthulhu and Lovecraftian Horrors count as Leviathan or would we need another creature type for that?
I wouldn't be surprised if we got a new subtype to tack onto existing ones that implies Kaiju status and then use that subtype as the way to enhance and grow those creatures. Say the subtype is Behemoth, the cards would read "Enchant target Behemoth" or "Equip Behemoth", but they would all also have a regular creature type too so they'd all be like "Creature - Wolf Behemoth" or "Legendary Creature - Dinosaur Behemoth". In this theory anything could be a Behemoth and not just limit it to what we know of Kaiju type creatures. If we're getting wolves, apes, and crocodiles there has to be some influence from "Rampage!" which implies the whole idea of anything being a Kaiju, maybe even a way of Enchanting/Equipping non-Behemoth creatures to make them into Behemoths...geez...gigantic elks just ran through my head...hmm...why was there no real pay-off for having a ton of elk?
Quote from 5colors »They also have "horror" creature types for non-eldrazi eldritch stuff.
Quote from Mishotem »Something tells me we won't see a lot of Dragons on Ikoria. Possibly also Dinosaurs, but that seems more likely to be included.
