Quote from Perkunas687 »So my original pet theory was that Ugin would ultimately take out Bolas like Flynn takes out CLU in Tron Legacy. I had heard War will happen on more than one plane, and I thought it might happen in the Meditation realm.
However, I was perusing Maro's Tumblr and he says that the mythic walkers are the main players of the story (Bolas, Gideon, Liliana), and that Ugin will be rare because he's only a supporting character, with 'a role to play.' Which is kind of disappointing, after the core set last year set up their history.
So if what Maro says is true, then it's Liliana and Gideon that are most likely to take down Bolas? And I think Maro also said the other plane isn't Amonkhet. So which plane might it be? Dominaria?
Quote from Flisch »What I find odd is that Dack does not have a card despite being shown to die in the trailer. What's up with that. He could have easily taken Saheeli's slot, who doesn't really feel like a natural inclusion to me. (Then again, she does have ties to the gatewatch, so I guess it's fair.)

I bet good money on Jaya, Old Mentor. And sure she said she wanted to help Karn with Phyrexia but two issues with that Jaya never did anything about Phyrexia in the past and Karn and Jaya were never friends before this recent trip back to Dominaria. Mostly she is old mentor though to Jaya so she is a dead women walking. I hope she gets a good card though. Yawgmoth vs The Nine Titans resulted in what half the Weatherlight Dead and 7 out of 9 of the Nine Titans gone by the time it was done.
Half the major legends on Ravnica dead is possible some are already dead like the Ghost Council. Bolas putting down 50% of the Walkers present though yeah no. I be impressed if a dozen Walkers fell in the fight quite frankly. As for who they kill personally I like them to kill some Humans, we have too many Humans running around.

Yep. What I'm wondering is which three guilds in Allegiance will fall under his sway. We only really know of two 'walkers besides Ral and Vraska still under his command: Liliana and Tezzeret. Liliana is both easy and poetic. I can easily imagine Bolas going "Hey, Lili, you have some experience killing demons, yes? Be a doll and go off Rakdos for me. Then take over the guild while you're at it."
Tezzeret is harder. We now know that Isperia is out of the picture, which makes Azorius a slightly more likely choice than Simic for the blue artificer. Especially given that he's originally from Esper, and that the Simic would likely firmly object to a technologically, as opposed to biologically, enhanced individual as their leader.
As for the last one, it's up in the air. Kaya doesn't seem like the sort to work for Bolas. We haven't heard from Domri in ages, and the same applies to him. Though he would obviously know how the Gruul operate, were he to be swayed via mind control. My bet though is on Ramaz taking over the Gruul. He never got a card, we know he works for Bolas, and the Gruul already have shamans. Yes, he'd be yet another RG planeswalker, but oh well.

He has Golgari and Izzet.

Now can we finally get Illithid and Neholders in M:TG?
