    I am pretty sure the baby in the story planeswalked. After he ate the bread he became very vital, and it was said that Merret 'could see an undeniable spark in his eyes'. This may just seem figure of speech, if it wasn't almost immediately followed by 'I think he is going to walk any day now'. Quite subtle, but probably foreshadowing that the baby is indeed a 'walker.


    The problem is that that is all explained in the story by the fact that the baby had been munching on bread soaked in the spilled elixir that Merret had stolen from his boss. It’s all very odd but a literal baby planeswalker who can’t even walk apparently seems unlikely.

    So Guild stories are cool and all But when does the actual story start?
    Im a little confused on what they are doing.
    Do we have to read the book for the actual story?
    Again filler stories are great and all but should be used just for that, filler. Like the last few weeks when we got Nothing.


    100% this. All that blank time could have been used for these stories. Then we could jump right in with the main story line along with the release of the set instead of having to wait a month.

    It’s about what manipulates an individual best. Distancing himself from Ral could be better because a massive, super-ancient dragon may not appeal to Ral’s planar loyalty, a core tenet to his character. From what we know so far Ral comes into power over his guild because Niv just sort of vanished into his research so, unlike Vraska, Bolas couldn’t dangle power in front of Ral and have him bite.

    As for Baan it may well be that he’s not even a minion of Bolas at all. He could just be a minion of Tezz, ipso facto, sub-minion of Bolas.

    To Little, To Late.

    Ugh on Dovin...seems like their throwing a character under the bus because he didnt bow down and worship at the Gatewatch's Feet...we should be able to have characters disagree with the Gatewatch without being made into Villains. Not everyone agreeded with or liked everything Urza did and they weren't all turned into Villains.


    Antagonist and villain are not the same. We have no reason to think that Baan is working directly for Bolas. He is working with Tezz. Which is a reasonable explanation for Ral as well. We have no evidence that either of them have actually met with Bolas or have any idea what the things they’ve been working on are actually for. As far as we have evidence of they’ve only interacted with Tezz.

    The way they worded it is confusing and a bit conflicting with what they said previously. Will I or won’t I need to buy the novel to get the major plot line with Bolas and the various forces aligned against him?

    And yeah congrats to Jay. They couldn’t have gotten someone better.

    Fair enough Jace roasted Azor and condemned him to an island for not doing his job plus meddling on other planes and yet he barely does his job so rank hypocrisy. Especially when Liliana gets a free pass because Jace and her use to bone. Not like she didn't slaughter plenty of people and meddle on other planes.


    Don’t know if you missed it or not but since Ixalan Jace has had a pretty hard turn on Lili.

    When someone mentioned that the art on Undercity Uprising looked like it should have been a Golgari Ascendancy I thought little of it. Then this art showed up.

    It should also be pointed out, since people seem to be missing this part as well, that it says you may choose ONE of them. If OPs translation is correct this doesn’t do most of the things people are going on about. It’s an okay card though. If it weren’t for the flavor it seems like it would want to be a Boros card.

    Nope


    Niv, Etrata, and Lazav are great. Emmara, and Izoni are meh. Aurelia is pretty bad as a commander and while it’s possible Tajic is good I’m not holding my breath, but what do you expect from Boros?

    Also maybe stop baiting? “Oh this sucks” statements with no explanations about your opinion don’t contribute anything to the conversation and make you look childish.

    this is probably the most boring art i have ever seen on a card. "background? who needs it. just go with dark shadows everywhere, nobody will care/notice"

    im 100% convinced wizards must be underpaying artists so they have no choice but to cut corners on this stuff


    There’s a whole big moon, bats and towers that, even in shadow, have details on them.

    If you want to complain at least do it about something reasonable.

    Marit Lage was the fourth Innistrad Angel Sister all along!

    I'm waiting for the madman who will cast 3-6 spells and then cast Apex of Power under the influence of Project Lightning Bug...

    Which reminds me, why isn't Thousand-Year Storm a LEGENDARY ENCHANTMENT NAMED PROJECT LIGHTNING BUG. It's not like you need more than 1 copy of this card to break it already, just give it the Legendary status it deserves.


    Because we deserve to slap a Copy Enchantment down with this and go even more crazy, dammit!
