    From the weekly stream War of the Spark online fiction will be out May 8th. It will tell the story of the War from the POV of Rat one of the characters from the novel. The group during the stream said that to think of them as secret chapters of the novel.

    Considering how traumatic spark removing has been in the past, I think its more likely walkers die from the shock of it removed rather as part of the extraction process and Bolas could simply as an elder dragon is able to take that stress on his body.

    Good best thing IMO to happen to Bolas and it closes his story just like it had opened;

    they do not notice the last egg-stone. It unfurls into not one, but two small dragons born twinned together. Not twenty paces from the clearing they hit the canopy, crashing down through branches and, with twin thumps, come to rest on the forest floor amid a welter of needles and fern.

    "Ouch," says the smaller of the two. He rubs his head against the ground to wipe away a trickle of blood where the tough branches have scratched through the still-tender scales.

    The other one tries to shake open his bruised wings but is trapped by branches fallen like a net over him. A broken tree trunk pins his body. "I'm stuck," he says.

    "I'll help you," says the first, studying the other with a keen eye. "You're Nicol, aren't you? That's your name."


    bye bitch.

    Narset isn’t mono Blue though.

    True. Forget to say I kinda think of her like Sarkhan and Ajani where her core is blue (since in both timelines the clans she ended up joining where blue-centered) but her full color identity is Jeskai.

    Different art from the stainless too, master pieces maybe?

    And finally Narset is mono-blue like she should have been.


    Why should she be mono blue? Jeskai colors would be best but not seeing why mono blue makes the most sense.


    Note: This is all personal opinion.

    I really dislike the tend the world building team (its no long creative now apparently) have of making mono-colored walkers into multicolored. Sorin bugs me since for awhile he was a mono black heroic character...then they gave him white. The reason for this was Innistrad brought his white side and at the time. Then he shows up during Tarkir black/white. I was annoyed but I was thinking it was gonna be due to color balance reasons. Add in the formed Khan cycle in dragon of tarkir was mono-colored it would have fit IMO better if Narset was mono colored with them.

    Yes, the glass art is Gideon's masterpiece edition art (that was spoiled on the very first weekend along with Roalesk and 8 more walkers including Bolas)


    Considering how the leaks looked I was unsure personally if the frame was to be believed.

    I was hoping the Gatewatch concept was done after this arc....oh well.


    Ye, i think it is a opinion that almost 60+% of players have


    On here maybe.

    I find it funny that planeswalkers are becoming guild leaders, if we see Vraska as a exemple, most of the guilds will be without leadership for alot of time.

    GB - Vraska either as Guild master or in Ixalan
    UR - Rall probably will be in ravnica most of the time as guild master ; Saheli will probably be in Kaladesh most of time;
    UW - Dovin will probably be in Kaladesh (?) most of time (?)
    BW - Kaya will probably be most of time in Ravnica (unless Teysa takes the duties, plz )

    Guess we will have to wait new walkers for those colors. (ye know the story will follow the gatewatch Frown )


    Pretty sure only Ral and Vraska would stay as leaders (and thats if Niv becomes the guildpact or whatever). Dovin will probity wouldn't be welcome back due his role with Bolas and Kaya only became guild master because of Bolas forcing her. If not for Bolas she would have left Ravnica after killing the ghost counsel.

    Well looks like Kaya joins the gatewatch. Interesting to see how she interacts with the cast. From her oath quote it seems like she is having a bit of a change in character after being forced by Bolas to lead the Orzhov and being in the War.

    I knew she would join after seeing the chandra comic and all the focus in marketing she has been getting. I've enjoyed Kaya and happy to see she is being promoted to a leading character.

    He encourage Domri to take over the Gruul as apart of his plot to weaken Ravnica as a indirect agent of Bolas. Also since Bolas got planeswalkers to be his agents for Ravnica is pretty clear he was gathering some walkers to be on the plane already before he launched his trap.


    Did he? Do you have a link? I'd love to read up on the details.

    5) From a story standpoint Domri was a dumb reckless teen who got played by Bolas, out of the group of walkers for the war he was probity the easy choice from a story point to see getting killed.


    Did he get played by Bolas though? I got the sense that Bolas didn't even know he existed before what happened actually happened.

    Rehashing something I said in another forum but I figured Domri would die for a few reasons;

    1) We have an abundance of RG walker characters already, with Arlinn going mono-green for this set (and from the looks of it Sarkahn is mono-red) just so all of them could fit in.

    2) We have a bunch of beast mage like walkers who can take his design space such as Arlinn, Sarkhan and Huatli.

    3) Related sum to 2, flavor-wise much of his trope space has been taken since we have Aminatou, Samut and Teyo (and maybe Huatli?) as non-adults walkers which was much of what made Domri special at the time.

    4) He was defiantly not the most popular of the walkers.

    5) From a story standpoint Domri was a dumb reckless teen who got played by Bolas, out of the group of walkers for the war he was probity the easy choice from a story point to see getting killed.

    That said, reason 5 I feel a little bad for Domri. He wasn't evil or wanting power, he was punk that played right into Bolas claws.

    Quote from Boreez »
    The Elderspell, broken? Are you kidding me? Your opponent needs to have 2+ planeswalkers in play for this to be card advantage, and even so, they'll already have gotten at least 2 effects out of those walkers, which may very well negate the card advantage.

    On top of that, it's double black, meaning that it's a hoser card with a restrictive mana cost.

    Jesus, the overreactions on this subforum.


    Also add in you also need to have your own planeswalker to get the full effect.

    Honesty I think this a great card for this kind of set since everyone will mostly be playing at least one planeswalker. It also will help balance out super friends decks in things like commander (as well as a likely addition since you can sac your own walkers to put more on another for Johnny/Jennny fun).

    Not bad. So Huatli will be selesnya?


    Yes, the number crunch showed this as well as Maro saying she's now GW after Rivals (she could be WGR if they want but she's considered to be more GW).
