    You are wrong.
    When I post the images there was no tag and simply link to the same site I use to get spoilers.
    Now linked to scryfall.


    Magiccards.net(?) becomed scryfall;
    On the wiki the old direct link still redirects to scryfall (I think) while on the forums the links to cards (by [car d]_name_[/card] ) on this forum on the cards directory. If you want to have a old version of a card you just write _name_|_set it was printed_ ;

    We use scryfall links mostly to post custom searches as there is no need to link every card when you have a preview image from the card using the card/card command.
    Exemple:
    Counterspell

    Now for a question does some of the stuff printed in commander 2019 foreshadow anything?


    I was wondering the same thing. Commander 2017 had interactions with Amonkhet's cats, Ixalan's vampires, and Dominaria's wizards. 2018 kind of hinted at planeswalkers and the lands matter in modern horizons. I don't think any of the keywords synergies have any obvious themes that would fit in Eldraine. Maybe a discard theme that synergizes with madness but isn't madness?

    Commander 2018 hinted at land in grave cards, artifact cards, "top of the deck" and enchantment. The land in grave was a theme in modern horizons, artifact had suport in urza and goblin engineer, top of deck and enchantment got together a land (Hall of heliod's generosity), and it announced a planeswalker heavy year imo.

    If we have to look at Commander 2019 for themes foreshadowed i would guess:
    a Morph set.
    A mechanic that values cards going into graveyard/ can be recast from the graveyard (maybe eldraine book mechanic is a flashback for creatures...)(not like creating a token of the creature but having a cost that would be prohibitive to pay over and over again, for exemple the goldilocks could be exile 3 creatures from any graveyard to play her from graveyard)
    For populate/tokens deck i can't imagine a good/new mechanic for it soo maybe a return of embalm or eternalize? Or maybe we see a new Army token/mechanic that is not like Amass but can benefit from it. If we are going to a viking set i could see we geting a embalm mechanic but instead of making a zombie token you instead make a spirit army token...

    Does anyone think a second deck like contraptions for the story book idea?


    Don't see contraptions entering black border unless it works with sideboards (like war of the spark karn or mastermind acquisition)(saving spots of the sideboard for cards that can search for them or interact with them, the "out of the game" zone). Adding a seccondary library is a thing that will probably never comeout of silver border or conspiracy-type draft products.

    Quote from Arctanis8 »
    But if he isn’t the son of yawgmoth, why give himself the name?
    he was created in phyrexia by Yawgmoth’s will and stretching a bit: by Yawgmoth hinself (as he was Phyrexia by that point...).
    In the story k’rrik was the lord of a “new phyrexia” inside a time booble he was not disrespectful to name hinself the father of machines or any title that would make him superior or equal to Yawgmoth.

    it is interesting how they gonna deal with knowledge of the existence of planeswalkers overall. Like since the mending ~100 years ago~ for some cultures the knowledgement of walkers could been gone.
    previous the mending the knowledge of planeswalkers was kinda common acros the planes mostly when those people meet the most famous ones but not all of them introduced themselves as walkers and soo we can assume that some planes had no idea about walkers.
    Also there is the metter of planes that had some kind of planar barriers like Kamigawa, Mirrodin, Ravnica, Ixalan, etc In those planes the knowledge of planeswalkers is or has become common pretty quick.

    Imo in most planes without planar barriers or other significant ways to block walkers the knowledge about walkers should be common or at least known by their rulers. Soo imo the high king knows about planeswalkers but may not know that his son and daughter are walkers themselves and soo their vanish of the plane may be the reason the king “went mad” and left the throne looking for them, maybe he knew about a walker that had residency on the plane and went question it about them.

    Even better, many thanks!
    By the way, you can confirm that the Core set 2020 doesn't have any player's guide, correct?

    PS: I find really funny that his bio says that Chromium isn't the strongest of the Elder Dragons, and then both his cards are f***ing 7/7! Rofl

    No visual guide in core 2020 indeed.

    About. Chromium ye XD but imo outside of Ugin and Bolas he is one of the strongest indeed (but probably not in physical strength as his card implies or may sujest xD)

    Many thanks! I'll be sure to update the wiki!

    (I don't want to bother you, but can I ask you to post a better pic of the page regarding Vaevictis Asmadi, please? Many thanks!)

    Would it be better if I write it instead? (I m doing this on my phone soo to post photos i have to change to desktop mode and then to return to mobile mode I have to do some shenanigans:( )

    “Vaevictis Asmandi is sometimes described as a rampaging monster, said to have sired the fiery Shivan dragons of Domibaria. He is also called “the Serpent’s Tongue,” and tales are told of his subtle deceptions and twisted layers of deceit. Given his close relation to Nicol Bolas, it should be no surprise that both descriptions are accurate.”

    Prety much this. His title “The Serpent’s tongue ,” I think there is a erro here with the comma inside the quote (his title)

    Yup, I found some and put them on the wiki Smile

    But I still need the Seize Control from Commander 2015, the Arjun commander description, thanks.

    By the way, I've read that the fat packs for Core 2020 don't have anymore a Player's Guide, so apparently WotC has really decided to cat cost on the lore department...

    Yep, lets hope they at least do those for "normal" sets like Eldraine. Those guides were a easy way to get into the story of each collection.

    I have a few but think the information is pretty much what is in mtgsalvation’s wiki. Do you need any in particular?

    Also, don’t bother with people don’t wanting to know about the lore of the product they are getting. It is pretty common I still remember seeing people opening D&D miniatures boosters (from the old bunch) without even looking at their cards and going with “oh this one is nice, it can be a statue of a temple or be a magical guard, etc”.

    Don’t think there is much of dominaria in the core 20 set. Maybe you can place the mono colored legendaries as being from dominaria but outside that I don’t see much fitting the setting.

    If you really want to make a dominaria inspired ser then you can look at onslaught/odyssey/invasion/mirage/dominaria/timeSpiral/wetherlight blocks for inspiration

    As title, I'm looking for a core 2019 player's guide, as I am told it contains some lore info. If you can help me, send me a PM, thanks.

    Later I can post photos of mine. The booklet that came with fatpacks contain mostly storyline blurb like who nicol bolas is and what he has done, if I m not mistaken the core 19 has a bio of 20 lines for each elder dragon and some for the planeswalkers of the set, probably has a mention to nicol bolas killing Ugin in the old time line. In like 5 hours I can post here.
