    The first extra chapter is lame sauce. One new scene in the beginning and then just the first part of the book from Rat's POV. I really should have expected to be disappointed.

    What are the extra chapters?

    Quote from user_938036 »
    Maro hasn't mentioned Ramaz in 4 years, which is a bad sign. It means the players aren't asking him about Ramaz often in the last 4 years. Though 4 years ago he ranked 9th for planeswalkers we know of and want to see. I'm guessing he was just never really popular enough to make the same jump the other duels planeswalkers did.


    Prabably not being a player character was the principal factor for his low popularity. If I'm not mistaken the other Duels-first PW were Nissa (albeit in her GB elven suprematist form), Kiora (at that time called Kiora Atua), Ral Zarek and, in a sense, Vronos (unnamed until Magic Duels).

  • posted a message on Angrath amass?
    ziiko-aomori-blog-blog asked: After reading the war book, I was wondering why Angrath has amass, it doesn't seem to fit his role against Bolas.
    It’s supposed to represent Angrath using his magic to temporarily pull Eternals to his side. Controlling magic is kind of his thing.

    I always thought he simply steals creatures binding them with his chains...

    Has pizza been mentioned in any magic setting so far?


    Don't think so... Heck, Magic is one of the fantasy franchises who doesn't expand much on the food of the vaiorus planes, they could probably write an entire cookbook about it!

    Bring back Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar!

    I was always under the impression that the reason Wizards led with human planeswalkers was that they were popular because people could find pieces of themselves so to speak in these characters. As an example with the new set Ral Zarek is revealed to be in a realtionship to Tomik, appealing to that demographic. Narset has Autism, Gideon shows classic signs of recovery from abuse and tragedy, Huatli is inspired by an area of Latin America. Things like that are why I thought they were more prominent?


    If this is true, they made the only two "Italian" planeswalker one an evil (albeit ingenious) goblin, and the other an inveterate thief who also got the shaft in WAR... Not good, Wizards, not good! You forgot pizza?!

    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.

    Vivien- 17 (5 chapters)

    So Vivien, whose only background was "Bolas destroyed everything I had", does practically nothing in tearing down her arcinemesis? Slant

    Bolas was cooked and injured by being transported by Ugin to the Meditation plane after he was desparked. Apparently it might have taken months to heal. But this, too, was usually impossible. They removed his Magic and his long life along with his spark, so why he would still survive the BE more or less intact, I don't know. It's canon, though.


    In the old continuity, before the Chronicles of Bolas story, Elder Dragons were among the only beings able to survive in the Blind Eternities even without being PW.

    I believe that the "rules" are simply what the plot requires. Do you remember how Teferi got his spark back? Through tne Mana Rig, which never before has been shown to be able to do that.

    I believe that the only reason Bolas didn't get killed is because Wizards could bring him back some years from now on, from his exile.

    Did we ever get any cards that show Jace returning Vraska’s memory and her betraying Bolas?


    No, because that doesn't happen in the novel.

    They shouldn't die, normally. However, on Tumblr Maro has just said that the removal of a spark through an Eternal is fatal.
