    Both are confirmed since very early on, just seems like things most people are obviously not interested in:

    Second one is Jace with an UG Deck.

    What about the other main protagonists?

    They do not die. Ob Nixilis and Teferi both lost their spark and regained it later. Azor lost his spark and is still alive too.

    Any chance we will see a Bolas' Defeat card?

    If I recall correctly Maro said, that the Council of Colors has overseen the complete set, so we can rule out something like Sylvan Library or Swords etc.

    I think we will most likely not see any reprints or new cards, that could easily be in a Standard Set (like the enemy colored cycling lands). I doubt we will see anything, that obviously goes straight into the unfair/non-interactive decks in the Format. I expect them to print mostly three things: 1.) Interactive spells 2.) Hate cards like the M19 ones, but much more powerful or modal 3.) Tribal support.

    The two cards shown, seem a bit like they might want to push BW Tokens or something similar, so maybe they will push more strategies, that are not that good or not problematic.

    Easy inclusions for me (either reprint, slightly better worded or in modern design like an Astral Slide, that only triggers when you cycle something):

    1.) Innocent Blood
    2.) Counterspell
    3.) Containment Priest
    4.) Mono colored Cycling lands and support.
    5.) Goblins, Elves, Merfolk and Faeries support.

    I for myself would love Vindicate and Council's Judgment in the format or two slightly tweaked versions of them.

  • posted a message on MTGWAR - Possible Emblem Interaction?
    I hope not. You mostly have to work a bit to the ultimate you just don't start with sure. Sure Teferi is powerful, but others are to and many end the game much better as Chandra or Elspeth etc. I think it is not that trivial to get and it's fine for Control to get a wincon that way. If you just don't like it to take longer, you can always concede.

    Weisman said, he had some cards with all the Planeswalkers and looked for teamups, that makes sense, so I expect a lot more of them. Really looking forward to that. But I am not that smart, to see much more of them Smile

    EDIT: Drawing the line just isn't our job. Ob is working with the others against the Gatewatch, at least in one situation. I think we can call that confirmed.

    I think it makes a lot of sense in some ways. Bolas tries to bring Planeswalkers to Ravnica and trap them there. Then we seems to want their sparks to become a god again. Seems an easy bet, that Ob doesn't like that plan at all, after losing his spark once before. I think these three will try to manipulate the Immortal Sun.

    I am just looking forward to see, which other team-ups we will see. I expect nearly all Planeswalkers (and Guilds) to fight against Bolas sooner or later, so there could even be another Ugin, Sorin and Nahiri team for at least the conflict or a certain situation. I expect Tezzeret to not show up, because he ist he Planar Bridge and he has to save Bolas (as he can't leave Ravnica on another way than Tezzeret) - and maybe he betrays his master?

    I like to see which Planeswalkers will team up. I think Karn, Dack and Ob might want to do something with the Immortal Sun? Seems like it makes somes sense. I would love to see Ugin to work with Sorin and Nahiri again.

    When I recall correctly, Maro said once, that there was a lack of mono Green Planeswalkers (since Garruk is GB now), so they created Vivian. So I basically don't expect them to get rid of most mono colored ones, especially the ones, which have different things going on. I can't really see them getting rid of one of the Face Walkers either, except Gideon (the new one seems white and I fully expect Elspeth to be mono White again, too), but he has some kind of is own style going on. I expect to see some of the older walkers not getting out of it like Jaya, Teferi and maybe even Ugin, Sorin and Nahiri, though they seem likely to be unique enough. Most Planeswalkers have something going on, which could easily be explored later, so maybe they will keep those more likely than others. Since we got most Planeswalkers in RG and UW, I fully expect to at least see one of them biting the dust as well as some of the ones, that aren't very popular or not that much explored like Angrath, but I think we will have at least one of every color combination surviving. And I am really looking forward, which one has the most target on himself from Bolas point of view. I fully expect most Planeswalkers and Guild to team up against him, even those we are not expecting yet.

    Has someone added all possible colors? I think red might even without Sorin in Mardu on top.

  • posted a message on Every booster will have a planeswalker in WAR
    That is nothing like this Showdown. If Bolas wins, all Planeswalkers we know will either lose their Spark or die with Bolas being unvincible and the Story basically ends forever. The Gatewatch will win. Most (or all) Guilds and other Planeswalkers will turn against him, when they see, what is happening and then he will maybe not be killed, but weakened or prisoned like it was planned with the Immortal Sun before. Maybe Tezzeret plays a role here, but I think he will be one of the main antagonists for the Phyrexian plot, that seems to be coming next.

    I don't think the Bolas Walkers will be color balanced at least not for all color pairs and WG seems like the obvious fit for not being Bolas alligned. Dovin's Acuity says they were 6 Planeswalkers including Tezzeret. Bolas might have more on his side, but Ob Nixilis may just be against the Gatewatch and I assume Vraska will not be the only Walker that will turn agsinst Bolas, when his plans become more obvious. I would just like to see, how Ugin comes to the Plane or how Sorin and Nahiri end up there, which could be really nice side storys.

    So we get 36 new Walkers and the with GRN and RNA they said, that they will color balance them in Standard. So if we look at the non-PW-deck Planeswalkers that are in Standard, we have:

    1 Colorless, 1 White, 2 Blue, 1 Black, 2 Red, 1 Green; 2 WU, 0 UB, 1 BR, 1 RG, 1 GW; 1 WB, 2 BG, 0 UG, 1 UR, 1 RW which makes 18 Planeswalkers in total.

    I think it is pretty clear, that most Planeswalkers will not see that much play and many of them will not have the powerlevel of Vivien or Teferi. I expect many of them to be more build arround or minor effects and maybe just the Mythic ones to be really powerful. I expect to get more Planeswalker interaction too, but with Core Set 2020 most likely be color balanced as always and GRN and RNA color balanced too I think it seems obvious, that WAR is color balanced too for the most powerful ones and some nice Brawl Commanders as well as Domninaria was too.

    My first thought was, that we get 2 of each color and 2 of each color pair, plus Bolas, Karn and Ugin so he have 3 places left. It would be interesting to see how common they will be, so maybe we get all with Rare or Mythic Symbol, there will be one in each booster, so we will get them more freqently. I expect 5 mono colored and 10 dual colored to be more common than the other ones.

    But if we go through the colors, this doesn't seem to fit. The mono colored ones are kind of easy or at least it seems so (you can argue for Nissa being mono G and Yanggu getting another color, but Simic either way has no second obvious Walker so it might just be Nissa). The dual colored ones are a bit more complicated. I can see some color combinations more represented, if they address more different decks and not all go into one strategy (as they did with Dovin and Teferi). Huatli seems RW here, so we have UG, BG and GW as the missing pieces? UG could easily be Nissa, GW could be the one with the hat, but then BG has none... so maybe there will be more 3-colored Walkers with the enemy colored ones just having one cycle and we get 5 Wedge Walkers which could be a connection to Tarkir and Ugin (Sorin as Mardu, Sarkhan as Temur, Abzan could be the hat lady, Narset is Jeskai and then we got Sultai...)? Or maybe Grixis, Jeskai, Abzan, Naya and Sultai?

    I think we can maybe see another Planeswalker as the Buy a Box Promo. I assume maybe Tezzeret or is he out of the story, because he is the Planar Bridge or knows what Bolas is up to?

  • posted a message on Brand new world after Core 2020 confirmed
    Would Vryn count as a brand new world? I could see it being the start of some character development, but I don't expect Jace to be major player for the first Sets after Core 2020 and I think you cannot go to Vryn without him being the face of the set. I would say the same for Theros and Gideon, if Elspeth wasn't also mono White.

    My prediction is: New World with some character development with at least one new (or new in War of the Spark) character and one major character. First Set with some hints to the Phyrexians. Second Set: Major Phyrexian Set with either invasion or Return to New Phyrexia or another Phyrexian world with getting information, that they knew plans, which Plane is next for an invasion. Maybe introducing that world after that plus gathering allies in the sets afterwards including Return to Theros to get Elspeth back - so maybe her homeworld is something, that plays a role? Maybe some of the Planes, that have been invaded, get us some information, how to beat them, Showdown on New Phyrexia?

    Pretty sure we will get some kind of Gatewatch in it, but I doubt, they will go full in. They might even split them and do two major plot lines for the next time. I could easily see Jace beeing stuck on Ravnica, as he has work to do there. Maybe Gideons death brings us to Theros, too. And maybe we get more of Liliana, if she survives, but I can't see them killing more than one of the 5 big ones.
