    Nothing more than what is written in the wiki (taken form Encyclopedia Dominia) is known.

  • posted a message on Elder Dragon War; what it is and what it could have been
    Maybe I'm late with this topic, however now that after almost twenty years we got the definitive recounting of the Elder Dragon War, I wanted to know your opinion.

    I must say my feeling are ambivalent: I liked how every Elder Dragon (and not only Bolas and Chromium) got a distinctive characterisation, however I cannot feel how much the war didn't stand up to what we knew (or believed to know) on it. It was supposed to be a huge interplanar war (remember, in the past not only PWs could travel the plane, and Elder Dragons were basically described to be able to) which spawned the dragons of the Multiverse; instead, the only non PW dragon to travel the planes seems to be the Ur-Dragon and we are sure that he travelled to Dominaria, but cannot say the same for other planes (it seems it didn't happen, however, if so we would have Elder Dragons from other planes). The Elder Dragon War just became (another one of the many) confilct that ravaged Dominaria, and lost that Infinity War vibe which I thought the writers were trying to put in Magic (which I still believed it will happen in Rereturn to Ravnica). So I must say that to be, even if the story was "good" it lost sooo much potential... Invasion block still remains the only time that Magic deal with extraplanar threat (if you don't count Emrakul)...

    What do you guys think?

    EDIT: Dang, I made a mistake in the title! Shocked

    How many believe that the final confrontation with Bolas on Ravnica is going to be a sort of Magic Infinity War, with a lot of the different PWs teaming up against the big bad?

    The fourth forest represents (probably) Havenwood, on Sarpadia.

    In fact, every Poole's land is a throwback to one of his card from Fallen Empires: a plain represents the Ruins of Trokair, a swamp the Ebon Stronghold, an Island the Svyelunite Temple and a mountain the Dwarven Ruins.

    For the other lands, I'm pretty sure they are too generic (or simply too different from the old Dominarian ones... those huge structures were never showed before!) to represent a specific location.

    Of course Vivien was meant to be a heroine by Wizards, they are the same who told us that the Tarkir Dragonlords are good guys!

    I just realized that the "geometrical" powers of the new walkers remind me of how spells were portrayed in the Ice Age comics, with colored geometrical shapes. Nice touch.

    I have seen someone else pointed this out, but another human female planeswalker?! I know humans are the most numerous race in the multiverse, but it doesn't seem to me that elves and goblins are so far behind... come on! Elves are on almost every plane (but Kamigawa and Innistrad) and we still have only one elven planeswalker... *shrugs*

    Do we know what plane Estrid, The Masked is from?


    No.

    I fear you are confusing Visara with Vraska.

    I must agree on the fact that I don't like the Multiverse becoming a sort of playground between Bolas and Ugin, it gives the feeling that among almost infinite planes there are only two major players... At this pace, one day we will discover that Bolas was the creator of old Phyrexia.

    I can agree on the battle with the leviathan to be simply a Bolas' propaganda, however that battle left behind it a very tangible remnant: the Talon Gates, with are all that remains of the skeleton of the leviathan after Bolas devoured it. If this battle with Ugin on the meditation plane is real, does it mean that Bolas devoured Ugin's body and brought his skull with him on Madara?

    I swear that for only new thing we learn on the past of Magic, we lost another that we already knew...

    If Bolas never fought the demonic leviathan, what is the origin of the Talon Gates?

    Quote from Volrath »
    It's a shame that they retconned the whole "Elder Dragons can walk the planes like walkers without a spark and rivaled them in strength part"....


    Yep, it seems they don't have those powers anymore... unless only the Elders surviving the war got them at a later time...

    Quote from Caranthir »

    Also, the "blast caused by Urza by detonating a magical device, that devastated Windgrace's people"? What? Looks like a retro-justification of the Windgrace acolytes...


    The Sylex Blast transformed Urborg from a jungle in a swamp. From Invasion novel:

    "The first had long been a resident of much-maligned Urborg, though he was no swamp-water snake. The panther warrior Lord Windgrace had lived on that isle when it had been a jungle mountaintop—before Argoth had sunk it. Though his land had died, Windgrace had remained. Though undead arose, Windgrace fought for the living. He remembered what Urborg had been and hoped to return it to its former state."

    Of course Estrid is pretty bland: she creates masks of other people to be interesting.
