    Ah this what you use Irencrag Feat for. Not for me but I can see that combo happening a few times in the next year.

    Apparently a theme that emphasizes on enchantment and artifact in this set. Enchantment I understand, consider Theroes is next, what of the artifacts...


    Plays nicely with food.

    Yay the Cinderella reference I was hoping for.


    The part Disney omitted, of course. (Old fairytales really love eye balls)


    To be fair on Disney they did Charles Perrault version (glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother) which didn't have the eye goring.

    They did let it slide for the movie version of Into the Woods tho.

    The 3 little pigs and this is probably the real big bad wolf since it’s being previewed with the 3 little pigs here


    I don't see how this is the "real" big bad wolf compared to the other, especially when in fables there are many big bad wolves.

    Uh, yes. That "somehow" is the context of other planeswalkers, not an absolute measure of originality. But if you had given my comment any intellectual charity you'd have nothing to say, so here we are instead.


    Well let’s consider their context shall we? Rowan is the third “carded” planeswalker who’s powers are based in fire. And let’s not forget Balastrix from a few of the books. Rowan is also female. Just like all three of the others. From what little we have of her she seems confident and maybe even a bit brash. Just like the other 3 (Jaya being older and thus displaying less of that than in her younger years not withstanding). Will on the other hand is the only walker we have with ice based powers (not counting Vronos here since he existed for the purpose of being killed by Garruk). The only physical traits Will shares with Jace are being white skinned and male. From the arts we have of him he looks taller with much more sharp facial features than Jace. And their skills are completely different. So, outside of you no wanting to see a white make planeswalker (not saying that’s how you feel just that’s the only reasoning I can see), there’s no reason to think Will is bland at all, much less more bland than his sister.

    All that said I’m not trying to argue that they’re bad characters.


    Just to note Rowan uses electricity and not fire.

    Outside of looking somewhat similar Will and Jace are pretty different takes on blue imo since Will is the most battle center blue walker we gotten so far compared to the scholars types we've seen.

    Gideon isn't in the Theros Underworld so it would be really weird to see him there. He died on Ravnica while the sun was active, he couldn't be on Theros.


    Heartwarming Reunion says otherwise. Unless Kytheon’s friends wound up in the Ravnican underworld...


    And somehow Gideon soul traveled to another plane instead?

    I don't take the vision as "real". Jeska and Gerrand had pretty similar visions at the end as well.

    As to the argument that the set itself has an agenda, I must say that while I too feel at odds with just how many female knights are depicted, the set also gives us the maidens in distress tropes. I've always liked the "Joan of Arc" characters in fiction and games, so a powerful knight chick is appealing to me, but it's so abundant here it's kind of off putting.


    Out of the 27 knights so far 10 are female and thats counting Syr Gwyn, a card from the Rowan planeswalker deck and promo art version of the shatter adventure creature.

    Do any of the legendary creatures appear in the story?


    As far as we know Algenus, Linden, The Questing Beast and Ayara.

    Likely Yarvo for the cycle Ayara is in.

    I think what will make or break food is if we get more Trail of Crumbs cards that like you sacrificing food without needing you to sacrifice them and the pay off for doing so.

    Does the fact that White has an obsession with fire in this setting have anything to do with arthurian myth or are they just copying Eberron?


    What obsession?

    I'm guessing a cycle with Ayara that cost three of a color and likes you playing that color.
