    I hope the Serpent Egg is a sea monster support card for sea serpents! Similar to Dragon support varieties.

    All I want is for this game to be Theros: the Gathering.

    Return GOOD commander decks that are not boring, plane-locked and uninspired. I miss sets like Commander 2016 and 2018. We can't even expect MTG characters in MTG anymore but we have this? WHERE IS KIORA'S NEW CARD ADAPTED FROM BEING AN ARENA EXCLUSIVE

    WHY DO WE HAVE THESE BEFORE KIORA

    While I agree not every product is for everyone, I must ask, who is this product geared towards? The gullible?

    A person with particular preferences is not a matter of gullibility. What an odious thing to say...

    'buster
    That person couldn’t just purchase these sets to draft? The alternative treatment couldn’t have simply been in collector’s boosters as it has been thus far?

    But on the other hand, showing the return of Marit Lage only in a comic and not in the cards is enormously disappointing, in my opinion.


    Considering how a lot of time fans have asked about Marit Lage they have said something to the tune of "we have the eldrazi to use in this story space instead" I think they don't have any plans to use her in the main storyline and thats why she's even being used in the comic.

    In that case they should've just gone ahead and make Marit Lage an eldrazi scion similar to Brisela, but one that has grown strong enough to traverse the blind eternities itself. Then, instead of infringing on the eldrazi's territory, it would be another addition to the roster.

    Ah whatever.
    Marit Lage is too interesting to be associated with the Eldrazi.

    While I do admire this comic storyline, I'd prefer it not to become canon. Marit Lage specifically wreaked havoc on Dominaria before being imprisoned in the ice, and possibly defeated. I preferred it that way - the mystery of how such a powerful demigod could be imprisoned in ice. This concept of manifesting in a glacier from the blind eternities and becoming trapped by something physical is ridiculous. Also, if this storyline is going to devolve into "Ravnica is great because marketing! And Planeswalkers are even better! Because PLANESWALKERS!" as I already suspect will occur, I'm writing off MTG comics for good. Marit Lage is superior to Eldrazi, Bolas, and all that other trash. Also, having Tezzeret behind plotting her release already irks me, because it reminds me of Bolas and the Eldrazi on Zendikar, and this concept of Planeswalker machinations involving beings that should be greater than they are, but that subpar writing and myopic creative relegate to secondary roles relative to inferior characters has worn my Vorthos card into pulp.

    EDIT: I will note, however, that SOI and Emrakul were examples of storylines and villains done right, respectively. That is how Marit Lage should be handled.

    In all honesty, that's actually been a pretty good read thus far. Better than most of War of the Spark, really.
    Mostly agreed. I only don't like that Marit Lage was imprisoned in the Ronom Glacier as soon as she arrived, since it's clearly stated she and her followers wreaked havoc on Dominaria before she was presumably defeated and sealed. Becoming trapped on arrival just seems silly for a being of such immense power. I hope they go the Emrakul route with Marit Lage and realize she cannot be defeated, only avoided for a time. Seems that way thus far, as even Oldwalker Jaya stood no chance.

    Now seventh.
    Bless your heart

    They better do Marit Lage right. I don't want any Ulamog/Kozilek Deus Ex Machina nonsense here. No "but planeswalkers!" or "but Ravnica!" crap. DREAD MARIT LAGE ALWAYS WINS

    The storyline for this new comic actually isn't bad. The Planeswalker leaders on Ravnica have to put aside their differences and deal with a threat to the Guildpact. they find out via Jaya and Teferi that Marit Lage has something to do with it.
    They ran a nice backstory of what Happened to Lage at the end of the Ice Age. ties up a couple of loose ends in the lore and asks why we never heard of Lage after the Thaw.
    Oh and Tezz is up to something in the book too.
    I'm curious where we can learn more about these details concerning Marit Lage? Also, is this canon?

    I am very interested in Marit Lage. Among my favorite characters.

    Perhaps the ritual will have had enough energy to catalyze the reformation of Bruna and Gisela, which in turn returns day to Innistrad, but does not purge the evils completely.

    I preferred when the trailers were animated card art and actually pertained to the story.
