Things of Note Teferi and Chandra are the two Planeswalker decks for Dominaria, Chandra's is R/G and Teferi's W/U that doesn't meant the planeswalkers are those colours neccessarily, but they could be.
Also Tezzeret's PW deck for M19 seems to be mono blue. We could be looking at another Tezzeret pre Bolas

Feb 6, 2018Marquisd posted a message on Duel Decks: Elves vs. Inventors Packaging and PreviewsPosted in: The Rumor MillQuote from Hawk7915 »Quote from AnImAr_ »Quote from Hawk7915 »Reasons Ezuri is being kept back:
- They used a Planar Chaos border since it's in the past, before he gets Compleated (minor but possible)
- Starting in Dominaria, they are changing the Legendary rules to be a special symbol with no rules baggage and a new "Unique" keyword. They aren't quite ready to drop that bomb on us, possibly because "Legendary Matters" is a major mechanical theme of Dominaria.
- Regenerate is returning but being functionally changed; this is spelled out on the card and they aren't ready to reveal that yet.
- Because he's such a popular commander, it's a full art card or has some other special treatment (if this is the case it makes me extra sad to not see a legendary on the front of the Artificers deck but what can you do?)
I think "two" is most likely, as I think they'd likely be proud to show off any special border/foiling treatment and overhauling a currently defunct keyword in a supplemental non-booster product is way outside their norm.
Where did they say that Dominaria was going to do that? Can you cite the article?
Sorry, this is me rampantly speculating; no one has SAID anything. MaRo has repeatedly said on his blog that he hates that legendary has rules baggage and it's a constant design struggle on every single set. Even for unsets - lots of Commander players wish Earl of Squirrel was legendary, but casual Squirrel players would hate if it was since they couldn't run multiples or clone it. When people ask what he'd change about Magic if he ruled with an iron fist, "Legendary has no rules baggage and is denoted by a special symbol" ranks just behind "Instant is a supertype, not a type" and way ahead of "Creature-Dog".
Having legendary be a special symbol would allow them to make more things Legendary for commander, without it impacting gameplay. They could then errata all legends printed before Dominaria to have a "unique" keyword, and selectively choose going forward if a legend needs to be "unique" (like most planeswalkers, or Thalia, Guardian of Thraben), or if it'd be fine in limited and casual constructed to let players run multiples. As an added perk, it'd let them do more typings for tribal/casual players - Chromanticore isn't legendary and Oketra the True isn't a cat for many reasons but one of those reasons is that it literally wouldn't fit on the typeline.Quote from blackchoas13 »So it has to be a new frame for Legendary creatures, right? Dominaria is gonna be a Legendary set at least to some degree so they invented a cool new frame so its more obvious which creatures are Legendary without having to read them
While a more extreme change in the functionality of Legends is possible, the legend symbol and the unique mechanic, I doubt it, for one I don't think MaRo just published their secret well guarded plans for future mechanics in an article about the Great Designer Search, for two it sounds much more complicated than the current legend rule. There maybe changes, again, but I kinda doubt they are gonna be so extreme as to cause functionality changes. Personally I liked the old Time Paradox rules instead of the current Everyone Gets One rules anyway so whatever.
The change to Regenerate is also possible but I highly doubt this as well, for one regenerate was taken out of the game about 2 years ago now, why go back and try to fix something that very few players ever see, especially when it isn't actually broken just more confusing than would be preferred, for two some of the ideas about the fix like changing it to grant indestructible just seems way too radical, this would be a massive functionality change to a massive number of cards
They already changed the way PWs function in a pretty big way at the end of last year, and we pretty much know they are planning a massive change to direct damage spells since they wanna scrap the PW redirect rules for simplicity, just how many massive rules changes, massive erratas and massive functionality changes do you people expect there to be in a one year period?
Also Wizards if your reading, I know its too late to ask but whatever this is please don't make it something stupid. I don't wanna look at new Legendary or Regenerate cards with the same disdain I use when I look at my Thran Dynamo that has C C C instead of just 3
Given they just added Planeswalkers to the Legendary rule and did away with the planeswalker uniqueness rule, suggests to me doing away with the Legendary rule is unlikely. I think the Legendary creatures getting a new frame treatment is the most likely answer at this point.
As for regenerate being too complicated, they put Storm in Mind and Might, I think they are okay with regenerate one last time.

Considering we already know know Ezuri's future a spoiler seems unlikely
Jan 25, 2018Marquisd posted a message on Gavin Varhey confirms change of course for Masters sets.Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from SecretInfiltrator »Quote from Shea_0 »Then give us the commander staples, new and old. This is also your space for finishing land cycles as well - something that is rarely touched on.
It's high time to improve the current model and give the Modern, Eternal, Iconic and frankly ALL Masters series some "gravitas" like what Commander has and give all of these formats places for increased card design IN THE FORM OF NEW CARD PRINTINGS THAT CAN SKIP FORMATS.
Isn't the stated purpose of Masters sets to increase the available printings of certain cards to lower the threshold rather than creating more exclusive "must-have" cards? Finishing land cycles in a relatively low-volume supplemental product would mean that those cycles would be in incredibly high demand and soon after the release lead to new levels of rising prices, right?
Masters sets are reprint sets that allow players to play with cards that are too powerful and complex for standard and let them have access to older cards that are harder to get. There has been a change in philosophy given they are are putting draft packs in Big Box stores.
Masters sets are not for new cards. I'm hoping the core sets will be where we see cycles being filled as they do not need to be tied to a specific plane.
