Quote from chaosof99How about Ral Zarek simply being the second Planeswalker in Gatecrash beside Gideon?
Quote from TasaNo Izzet "coverage" in Gatecrash.. so.. i think would make more sense in "Sinker"
Quote from jturphyI think Izzet fanboys need to get a new hobby outside of speculating that Ral will be in every new set released forever.
Quote from chaosof99Also a good point.

Quote from Skjenolchttp://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/feature/210a – ctrl-f 'Jace'
If there's a UR planeswalker, I think it will be Jace. It doesn't make sense for both the planeswalkers in RTR to be associated with Izzet, and Ral Zarek is likely on a playmat for RTR Game Day, so he's likely to be in the first set. [ http://forums.mtgsalvation.com/showthread.php?t=441608 ] Gotta agree with the legendary creature idea.
Quote from krishnathHave you actually read the article that you are linking to? If anything it points towards Jace *not* being UR. >.<
Quote from SkjenolcFor this topic it doesn't matter if the new Jace card is actually UR; he's working with the Izzet League, and I think we can all agree that it'd be unreasonable to expect both RTR planeswalkers to be associated with the same guild.
Quote from skorchdniteWould it be far-fetched to guess that perhaps RTR is taking place BEFORE Ral's spark ignites? It might be something like what happened with Ajani and the Alara block. Perhaps Ral will be featured as a character (a second Izzet legend after Niv maybe?) in RTR. This could set up a place in the story for him for his spark to ignite DURING the block's storyline, and perhaps we'd then get a card of him as a PW later on. Maybe during Sinker, maybe in a later block.
Quote from Serafiendjust remember wotc, be sure to keep that print run in check. we don't wanna upset players of mtg: the stock market, after all.
