    He is all but confirmed.


    Looks like you are in the denial phase. Happened with a lot people and the godzilla cards too


    Charisma is saying "He is confirmed in every way except officially." He's saying that the card is real, not fake.


    Yes that is what i am saying. 100% real

    I think i should have done this a long time ago. I don't even remember how long i have been posting in this forum much less how much time i have been reading posts.
    I am from greece, live in athens, my name is John and have been in contact with the game(other periods playing while others just observing and reading the lore/cards since 2001. In april is my 20 year anniversary i suppose.
    I am a red player at core and splash onto blue mainly, but play occassionally with all colors.I am not a fan of playing azorious control at all. Commander and free4all(survivor style matches) is my favorite format.

    It turns out alrund is in the video. So he is a cross between odin and heimdall. Still there are 3 more characters in that could fit the god type. Despite all that, i still think that having gods in monocolored idenity is a missed opportunity coz most gods from norse mythology are at least 2 or more colors. Ikoria still being around probably played a role in them not being 3 colored. I get that based on restriction from mythics we couldn't have 15 but damn we could have 10 in mythic and still have them 2 colored. At the end of the day, given the gods are indirectly immortal, they could be worked to be at a rare slot and have them as said.when i look at the white one and abilitywise it looks more rare than mythic. If they are all monocolored what sets them apart from the other 2 cycles othen than the mechanics?

    Creation of Niko had mostly the goal of getting people talking and sure enough judging by this thread it has achieved its purpose.

    Character is interesting being blue and all and a unique set of abilities that would be intriguing to see how they are represented in a card

    My problem with them is that it doesn't look anything like being from theros, given the facial features. When it comes to those i would think they are from amonkhet. I am not sure the born/initial gender is male as someone said.it might be the armor but to me it looks like they have a small pair of boobs. The goatee can be a spell, or paint or even transplant(we don't know anything about if it can be done in the realms of the multiverse). Additionally the face shape is too round for a male that is supposed to be slim.then again that might have been done on purpose with the character, to interpret them however they like.

    this is a great card for boros. Love the fact that we have multicolored sagas.

    Maybe gods are enemy colored?

    That would be awesome if the included hyper borealis as an in set mechanic.

    I was thinking about the norse mythology and the 9 world aspect. Magic will probaly give it its own spin and go with 10. Now whether they go with 2colors or 3 colors is debatable. They could actually even go with 3 colors but instead of wedges/shards they could go with 2 colors and a hybrid of lets say 2mana/snow. That could be a version fittin the setting/enviroment which would give us something new. We shall see.

    Regarding the planeswalkers kaya is a given and it was mentioned that there would be 4. I would think that ramaz would be the second and any 2 of the following 3, samut basri, calix(given they are from planes with gods) would bring us to 4.

    I see. Thank you for your answer. Didn't even think about that. No resemblance at all imo

    A general theme with the norse mythology is sacrifice/tribute/offer to the gods. I am not sure that will be the theme with them but it would fit. They might go the modal route. I would be shocked if they only had 4 gods. I think the norse gods are more popular than egyptian gods in pop culture so i am gonna stick with the 10 god theory hopefully in tricolor themes.

    People don't like what I have to say about a card game? Clearly CNN is behind this. Rolleyes

    Does anyone have any speculation about how the gods will be colored? Enemy colored gods? I'll be happy to see new gods no matter what color they are but I'm really hoping this new plane will have a continuation of a dual land cycle already started so we can get the enemy color versions. Enemy versions of the Scattered Groves cycle or the Sunken Hollow cycle or even the Foreboding Ruins cycle. After building many a commander deck the disparity in available fixing between allied and enemy colored lands is getting pretty noticeably lopsided.


    Though they probably won't be, i think that the gods should be 3 colored. Loki archetype is sultai, thor jeskai odin bant and so on. Reidane god of judjement sounds like esper to me and the other guy, god of wisdom sounds likes bant to me. I am quite sure however based on the names that the gods won't ge monocolored. Judgement at the very least is orzhov and wisdom simic or azorious. I personally expect to have a pantheon of 10 even if not all get cards.
