    We got another cute story, but all the stories are kind of the same and all the main characters have the same personality: a low ranking member of the guild has confidence issues but is trying his/her best to make it in the guild. It’s a brutal world that can be difficult to live in, but the main character is really a nice person who really wants to succeed. In the end, everything works out.

    I'm just waiting for the Azorius story to inevitably come along and instead portray the main character as some laughable, incompetent lawful stupid - or even directly villainous - putz, because "gov'ment bad." It'd certainly fit the theme that MTG's been playing up in recent sets. (Seriously, when was that last set where the governing body wasn't either pointlessly useless, or actively corrupt?)

    /salt


    Have we ever gotten a body of authority that wasn't corrupt or useless? Magic lore never has the best track record with positive governments and religions in general.

    New story today, it was cute. I forget the Selesnya story exactly, was her father actually the person who was in the underground operation? I seem to recall thrull merging happened with him.


    Thats what they hint. Nicky seems to have her own connected universe since characters from old stories pop up. It seems like the father was also slashed with booze during the Dimir story as well. It will be fun to go back and reread them and see if how they all interconnect.

    Interesting how they have Kaya in with Gideon, Teyo, and Chandra. Does that mean that Kaya switches sides and joins the Gatewatch...

    buster


    From the art book and players guide, we learn Kaya was hired by Bolas to kill the ghost counsel and then he forced her to take over after she was done.

    I wonder what color(s) he is. Guessing white with blue and/or green.

    I suppose that means the book is being written for non magic players? Otherwise I don't see the point of POV character.


    To give a differnt pov than the web fiction.

    Fair enough. I mean they did make an Esper Walker recently but eh she is in Commander.


    And? 4/5 planeswalker from the first batch of walkers have shown up in the storyline and gotten second cards and I'm pretty sure Aminatou ended up being pretty popular as a character.

    Dimir is I guess fairly open since dual color walkers are prominent then tricolor. Doesn't fit with the guild but he be different from Ashiok so that is plus. Still we got shocklands so its not like a Grixis Manabase is all that taxing if he is UB. Could make a cool UBControl Deck with him I guess. Still UB is weird colors if he is a Demonolgist so probably best off as monoblack. His theme doesn't fit Dimir or Esper that great. A quick says only 4 Demons or Devils with Blue exist. Could make more I guess, its pretty open after B and R. They could make Grixis I guess he did like the finer things in life and that fit Demon and Devil Summoner way better but WOTC doesn't want annoy Sanderson so he is probably monoblack.


    Sanderson has said he sees Davriel ability to seal other mages spells as his theme more so then being a Diabolists, playing around in designs like Gonti/Nightveil Specter/Thief of Sanity.

    Interesting, previously people thought Teyo was a lady, guess he's just handsome and wears a robe.


    The few white dudes they put on cards these days mostly look like a cross dresser at best lol


    Such as?

    I wonder if Teyo will get a card or be story only. I like him being a new walker too, can be way to have exposition to explain whats going on.

    So I guess this book will have events from Teyo pov and the web fiction focus on someone else.

    While I don't think we will see all those specific walkers, it would be cool for a few other minor walkers who we only have seen once and set up maybe some future character interactions. Example could might the War was the reason Tibalt goes after Chandra in the comic, he was on Ravnica saw her and the gatewatch and decided afterward to experiment on her emotions after.

    next story isnt until feb 27th what the heck!? That is three weeks from the last story.
    Maybe this last one will have a little more main plat impact if they are making us wait 3 weeks for it.


    Well we have Orzhov and Azorius left and at least the Azorius by now have had Dovin taken over so it might touch on on more main plot details but I think its more likely they had given Nicky Drayden a week off or something similar. They did something similar last time where we got 3 stories, break, 2 stories.

    Amanita, Fungus Monarch BRGW
    Legendary Creature- Fungus
    Lifelink Deathouch
    At your end step chooses any number of permanents that are a fungus or a Saporling with a counter on them, then puts another of those counters on those permanents.
    At the beginning of your upkeep if you control another creature that is a Fungus creature token or a Sapling creature token, create a 1/1 green Saporling creature token. It gains haste until the end of the turn.
    3/3

    Next: A commander that you could run in multiple color combos (like how Alesha, Who Smiles at Death could be the commander of a RW, RB or RWB deck)

    My favorite is Gideon blocking a strike from Ulamog but getting bounced like a Ball by Bolas. Ulamog has no reason to hold back so this means a Bolas that is holding back hits harder then Ulamog. In what world does that make sense?
