    It's Magic's story, if you're expecting it to be better than *****ty you're kidding yourself.

    I hope the cards are good and the art is cool. I hope they go full viking stereotype with big helmets, horns, muscles, ships, valkyries and stuff like that.
    There's still hope for some of that old school Conan heavy metal album style art with the recent Jared Carthalion, True Heir which I think would fit this perfectly.


    Well,in that case why even bring your opinion into the matter if you don't see the point and think the discussion is unimportant? Instead it feels like you just want to push your own opinion (Magic story always equals *****) and then stop it right there to have the last word.
    Believe it or not, some people here do care and like at least some aspects of the story and do want to talk about it. I also feel like "*****ty writing" and "Mary Sue" have both become snarl words thrown against any story/character that people dislike, no matter the actual quality of it all. Not saying that the storyline is always great, but seriously, confusing ones own subjective likes/dislikes with objective criticism is astoundingly common in this thread and often on this forum as a whole.

    That aside, if Wizards has done one thing relatively right (with a few exceptions) then it is mixing the common stereotypes about ancient cultures with some more realistic and not well-known aspects to create their fantasy counterparts. I wouldn't worry about horns, ships, valkyries and definitely muscles to appear to fulfill your wildest viking stereotype dreams. Just probably mixed with some less well-known facts about them probably.

    Eh, I still stand by what I said. Arguing for four or five pages about pretty out there nothing theories is definitely not important and I regret reading through it hehe, but I don't think my opinion matters much anyway and so whatever if I throw it into the pile. Not meant to end a conversation or say "this is how it is!". It's obviously subjective, so don't worry if you disagree with me. It's alright.

    I'm Danish and I know all that "But vikings didn't have horns!!" stuff. I don't care if it's unrealistic, it's fantasy stuff, go full 80's heavy metal album cover vikings. Don't take themselves too serious, just go all out with it. Make it a little different than the way the art direction has generally been. I think most people would think that was cool and not just be my personal "wildest viking sterotype dreams". Ridiculous lol.
    I doubt they'll go that direction given the leaked figures and stuff we've seen so far. Probably be a lot of subversion of expectations lol. I'm still looking forward to seeing more revealed from the set though. I'm hyped for vikings and snow.

    lol half the people mentioned in that list of Gary Stu's don't fit the description and get ****ed up regularly.
    Everybody in this thread needs to step away from the computer a bit and relax. This ***** is not important at all.

    Who cares about the lore anyway. It reads as terrible fan fiction. A couple of lore hints in the flavour text can be cool and add a certain sense of mystery, but the way the story is drive now is terrible. No bother.

    Still, as a Dane, I'm hype for a Viking themed set. Hope it doesn't suck.
    Your not wrong and it doesn't help the planes in the longterm. After all part of wanting to visit certain planes was the lore. If the lore is trash then the desire to see certain planes or characters has less interest behind it.


    I would love to see more of Kaladesh, but mostly because I love the art direction hehe.

    Time and time again. As if they're going to ban the newest cards that are selling packs.
