    I wonder if we are now gonna see more mini-planeswalker support like this, or just flavorful as Harald is Tyvars brother.

    Guess Wizards is cool with male characters looking like they just walked out of Magic Mike but the women need to be covered like nuns Rolleyes


    Yup klothys running around topless is a real nun look.


    True, but they were probably sweating bullets for any twitter backlash releasing that Klothys art. Likely had a pre-written explanation/apology ready about ancient Greek attire and all that jazz Grin


    In greek attire women where heavy clothed and covered. They tradition wore head veils, Chitons (and with only the arms allowed to show) and even underwear. It was forbid for woman to be dressed any less unless in public baths or at home.

    Men where often nude in public.

    A dwarf viking riding into battle on a goat fit so well in the bad ass silliness that is Norse Myth.

    Quote from Mullerornis »
    So has anyone noticed Green and Black get the most gods? Given the Heinir before the Skoti, is it possible Kaldheim gods just are oriented towards Golgari colors?


    I think its just kinda how the designs shook out (along with flavor to make it work out), Maro said they had a bunch of design ideas with the MDFC. Jorn and Esika are both cool with almost being hybrid colored (with what they are gods of making sense to be in base green) and story/theme wise makes a lot of sense to have the Loki analog and Tibalt on one card.

    The hammer returning to hand means you can use it early game then flip it into the gods later.

    I'm kinda sad that both sides are one card for commander and such but love how the two sides work well with each other with most of the gods.

    Olwalkers where "immune" to being completed since they didn't have real bodies. Neo walkers can be since they have typical bodies like anyone else but certain planeswalkers have been given the immunity Melira has. In Quest for Karn (canon up in the air as it omit the praetors and only have Tezzeret and Glissa as leadership) when they found Karn, Melira was able to cleanse a lot of him but couldn't clean his heart was a phyrexia heart stone. Venser then teleported his heart and spark into Karn and let Melira finish cleansing the golem.

    Of noted being completed harms the soul in a similar way being killed and turned into a zombie/vampire does. It will fully snuff out a spark and leave the completed being no long a walker.

    This is probably a illusion but





    Facepalm wizards stop killing popular characters with Kaya

    But however this could be the first story when she goes for his neck and alrund had him run and plus maro confirmed she gets her axes later in the story these are daggers and even if it happens phyrexians know how to resurrect or this is a set up for glissa to become the green praetor


    I find it odd they spoil this, this soon they tend to try and save some of the more story spoil stuff towards the ending of the season and we haven't even gotten Maros design article. They also often leave the full context of the story out of the cards (since it hasn't been written yet) so while I think this is likely gonna go how we think it will, I think there might be more.

    Huh, it's a vehicle that drives itself.

    And I thought Esika was the Idunn expy and Reidane was more like Freyja (her war aspect, at least)....


    Why not both? Ephara, Iroas and Thassa are all Theros versions of Athena.


    How are Iroas or Thassa versions of Athena? I’m not even sure Ephara really is.


    ZasZ234 said Iroas and Mogis play in similar theme as Athena and Ares dynamic.

    Thassa is a god of knowelge and wisdom and said was partly athena based during Theros 1.

    Ephara plays into Athena role as patron of Athens and Ephara said to have grant magic and knowelge to mortals.

    Honestly plenty of the gods don’t line up with proper mythology so it’s not like the Norse plane should be different.


    Kinda pointed out in another thread most of the magic gods are mixed and matched with the myth and magics own lore.

    I enjoyed the Kay and Niko articles, though admittedly in the Niko article it was difficult to keep track of everyone's names at times.

    Edit: is it just me or is it weird that there is made no mention of Rat nor Teyo?

    As much as I'd like some elements of the War of the Spark Novels retconned, I feel as though the sudden shift here into the new story feels a little jarring. While I'm glad that Rat is not on the plane with Kaya I think the story could have explained better how the trio parted ways for a time, and acknowledged that the three of them still had a close working relationship.

    I like Rat as a planebound resident of Ravnica, and as a character I like Teyo even more and would prefer they remain in the lore somehow, and in Teyo's case become even more active. I however suspect that WotC are still trying to figure out how what elements to keep or throw away from the Novels.


    I think this a weakness of having outside authors come in and work on stuff without being really able to talk to each other. They definitely had a lot smoother transitions as to why the characters where going to certain planes when it was done in house (like setting up Ixalan as far back in Zendikar).

    So far we doesn't know where/when she got paid (my gut says Ashiok or Tibalt if we are revealed who it is) and so that leaves some time unaccounted for. I'm guessing Kaya and Teyo (wth Rat) went back to Ravnica to re-group with the gatewatch, a bit of time passed and Kaya got this job and (said in the text) figured it be a quick easy hero job.

    I really like that Vega and Ranar are the "foretell" legends but have a lot of fun exile stuff going out outside of that. I think I might build around this just cause you can find some nifty exile stuff in white and some in blue (outside of blinking).

    All these WU spirits will also play nice with Innistrad 3. From what we been told its more vampire/werewolves but I would be shocked if there wasn't some spirit tribal.
