    posted a message on Help needed: Commander booklet
    Yup, I found some and put them on the wiki Smile

    But I still need the Seize Control from Commander 2015, the Arjun commander description, thanks.

    By the way, I've read that the fat packs for Core 2020 don't have anymore a Player's Guide, so apparently WotC has really decided to cat cost on the lore department...

    So uh... Chandra is officially the energetic, endearing, lovable face of the product now? Are we all supposed to pretend that one time when she killed innocent people with no provocation (TWICE!) never happened?

    Yup, but I don't know what are you talking about... she is ever been a lovely person, don't let anyone tell you different! u.u

    Now that Mtg Salvation is closing, where will all your Vorhtos go?
    I'll admit that Mtg Salvation was the only mtg community I lurked everyday, so now I'm a bit lost and I don't know of other forums or community interested not only in Mtg cards, but in lore too...

    posted a message on Let's talk about MtG's storytelling...
    I really don't know what they wanted to do with Vivien... When she was introduced, with her vendetta against Bolas, she seemed to would have been a key character in bringing down the dragon. We even got a story for her, but not her origin story, which was basically only in her bio. As others have already said, why showing her on Ixalan? Is she is the only survivor of Skalla, show us Skalla, tell us what happened to it...
    This would have probably matter less if her role in WAR would have been major, but she did nothing against Bolas, which we were told was her nemesis.. Why create this character, then? You don't show her origin, and you don't close her storyline...

    I'm not even sure she was supposed to be a "good" girl, an antihero, or simply a neutral character. If her portrayal in Unbowed was supposed to show her like an hero, it failed miserably. So, once again... why we had Vivien? She is a little more than another Kasmina.

    posted a message on Ramaz
    I too had thought that Ramaz was supposed to be the replacement for Sarkhan defection, since both are shamans. Alas, this wasn't meant to be.
    At least Vronos, another DotP only character, got to be included in a short story.

    Also the unknown I think is Ashiok not the Wanderer and we can't really say what Ashiok since they have been twisted by their own nightmare magic from their originally form.

    Yes, I was thinking of Ashiok. I believe that the Wanderer is simply another human but obviously I could be wrong.
    On the half-human and "hybrid": I was trying to enlight more the difference than the similarity.
    About dead PWs: I simply considered carded characters, but to be more precise, 1 elf, 1 cat warrior and 1 satyr are dead (together with at least 7 humans: Serra, Urza, Venser, Elspeth (sort of) and the 3 casualties of WAR)
    Reading the names of the dead PW makes me say: planeswalkers of the multiverse, don't choose white as your color, is bad for your life!

    I really hope they go back to the old way of storytelling (you know, the free one), after the *****show that was WAR i'm never buying another MTG Novel ever again.

    The free one isn't really the old one. Before that, there were at least a novel for block, and before that even a novel for sets. They stopped doing them around Innistrad, I think, when they realized they were selling well. I don't know how War of the Spark would sell, but Magic storyline has never been top notched, even at its best.

    Still, going out to mention "possible illegal actions" of the leaker leaves a bad taste in my mouth - they mentioned the store gave them the book early, and tbh I don't see no shred of evidence to suggest otherwise.

    Me too, I can't see how he could have done anything illegal, if he legitimately bought the book.

    Did you really receive a book bound backwards?!

    posted a message on Original Phyrexian
    At the question "Where do Phyrexians originally come from?" Maro answered:
    "Like the slivers, it's not yet a known world. The one thing we do know is that they've showed up on various worlds, the original Phyrexia, Dominaria, Mirrodin, Elspeth's home world. Pre-Mending, they used planar portals, but now that those have shut down, their ability to move to new planes has been greatly halted. They managed to make it to Mirrodin through an unaware, infected Karn. Like the slivers, there's a decent chance we'll one day visit their home world, or possibly just another world they exist on."

    I'm not sure I understand the answer... We know that the home world of the original Phyrexians was Dominaria, they are simply the twisted survivors of the Thran... Or is he speaking of the infamous dragon creator of Phyrexia? I don't remember if when Yawgmoth and Dyfed discovered Phyrexia there was life on it: I'm pretty sure the plane itself had been described as a living being. I seems to remember some lines about some microscopic organism, but I may be disremembering things.

    Can someone help me shed light on this? Thanks
