I'm not convinced yet that we'll just get another batch of planeswalker commanders.
They always tried to push the envelope a little bit further than they had before I think and this would be just "been there, done that".
So I hope there is more to this than "just" more planeswalker commanders.
Considering the sudden cat tribal in Amonkhet and the vampires in Ixalan, I think we should be very attentive for whatever themes Dominaria gives us.
Based on the Elves vs Inventors ambiguity surrounding Ezuri and the marketing subtitle of Dominara "Gather Legends" I think it might have something to do with the legendary supertype.
Which coincidently would now also be relevant for planeswalkers.
Personally I'd love to see an enchantment based commander. Bonus points for not just enabling voltron.
I could use a new helm for my Nahiri boardwipe/humility deck..

Feb 18, 2018Might be partially placeholder artwork? Because i doubt they'll print the Planeswalker Deck Planeswalker Artwork on the regular boosters...Posted in: The Rumor Mill
They always used different artwork in the last sets.
I like the aven. Karn looks strange though.
Feb 17, 2018Doesn't look like planeswalker art to me.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
And her previous depiction all had blue accents in her clothing.
The collar looks somewhat similar to Narset Transcendent though.
Her facial features are different in all of her despictions, so it's hard to tell.
Feb 15, 2018So all Bolas has to do to find Ugin is open his intern Google Maps? I doubt it's that easy.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Jace also wasn't able to track Vraska after their first confrontation.
And the whole Ixalan/Bolas' Realm thing seemed to have happend later as she was already in everyday life mode when it occurred.
Ral must've just lied imo.
Feb 14, 2018Well it has been literal months since their sudden parting. It doesn't make much sense for the whole team to flock together if their objective is to gather allies. Most of which are probably planeswalkers so just waiting on dominaria is hardly effective.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Nobody but Jace knows of Bolas next target, so it's not as if they're in much of a rush for now anyway.
Besides we don't know who else is on that airship. Apparently many more ("a room full of people"!) than just Gideon and Jaya.
He just focused on Gideon because he's easy to track.
Feb 14, 2018I wonder what Liliana will do after the inevitable kill of her 4th nemesis.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Will she try to rid herself of the chain veil next?
It doesn't seem that Jace is much interested in her companionship any longer and he was like her only proponent tbh.
Chandra is more on the Nissa train now it seemed.
So she really needs to form somewhat of a bond with Gideon in this set if she wants to stay with the gatewatch train (or airship now) imo.
Feb 14, 2018Honestly? It felt more like Angrath was put on a bus than a happy end to me.Posted in: Magic Storyline
They carefully avoided any kind of tension. Girls are fine, not even unpleasant suitors or anything. Forge is fine, pretty much everything is just as he left it.
Like they have no plans with him for the time being.
Feb 12, 2018Azurhawk posted a message on Banned and restricted announcement Feb 12 JtMS unbannedHmmm... I wonder what other cards I should buy now before they raise. (for playing them, not as investment)Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Like will Cryptic Command go up or down? A deck can't run too many 4drops after all... even if they do different things.
Will BBE make Kolaghan's Command more expensive or have no impact at all? How is Ancestral Vision affected by both?
I don't actually care for either card tbh but for quite a few that may or may not be connected to them.
Feb 7, 2018I wonder what they see as the defining flavor for the plane.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Because if it's the caribbean/south american scenery with dinosaurs and pirates, a visit to Torrezon will most likely never happen.
And will they really make 2 vampire factions fight over this already faction-loaded island?
Although I don't think we'll return to Ixalan anytime soon anyway.
Feb 7, 2018To be fair the Nissa stuff could still have happened off screen.Posted in: Magic Storyline
It has been months since their defeat and maybe she was looking for Jace or something.
Depends if Bolas already wrapped up his toys and sent them elsewhere.
Shake the Foundations should be impossible now though.
Feb 7, 2018I find it hard to believe that whatever the story about the elder dinosaurs was, it took Huatli 2 years to internalize it.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Was it like 500 pages per elder or what? I'm starting to think that she's just not very good at her job...
I liked the beginning of a schism for the vampire society. Vona will probably stay behind and wage her own little war with Apatzec Intli III.
Also Angrath being like "**** all of you I'm out!".
What happened to the approaching sun empire army though? We'll probably find out next week. Hopefully Kumena makes another appearance, too.
Although it felt a little bit like "Guys Orazca is still totally important! Guys I swear! Guys?!" and failed to hype me for the last story.
It just seems like everyone important already left.
Jan 31, 2018Posted in: Magic StorylineQuote from Dunharrow »Anybody else feel like Bolas' end game is a bit underwhelming?
Also, how do the Eldrazi fit into that end game?
I had assumed that the end game was getting his former power back. In the Amonkhet block he goes on about putting his plan in motion, to devour worlds to get his power back. Why is Ravnica important to that goal?
It's funny, every time Vraska or Jace mused about how large and uncomprehensible Bolas' plan is, my dissapointment increased.
There has to be something more to Ravnica.
Also they kinda handwaved away all influence Azor had on Ravnica with a single sentence:
Law magic was built into the fabric of Ravnica, even before Azor arrived.
Btw RIP Jarad. You did nothing wrong but the plot demands your demise. Probably offscreen, too.
Jan 30, 2018But doesn't that mean that there was always the potential for vampirism on Torrezon?Posted in: Magic Storyline
It just happens that Elenda was the first to "achieve" it while searching for the sun.
Blaming that on Azor is as fair as blaming the Gatewatch for the Hour of Devastation because Liliana triggered Razaketh.
