    That JTF on the first shelf though... WHAT COULD IT MEAN!? (It does look like that one is the mystical archive one of allied-color spells they couldn't jam into Strix)

    Or is it backward FTL? (Follow the leader?)

    Also, the record and sticks look more like jazz equipment than metal, but I doubt they'll do a .... SNAKE JAZZ

    Notice the little gecko or whatever by the Owl's left foot.

    Y'all better figure this out by the end of the day.

    • a planeswalker you know, but not as you know them
    Undercover Liliana, Masked Estrid, Six-less Wrenn or The Wanderer are the most likely options here. Shapeshifted Oko is a possibility but it would be weird to see both the Kenriths and Oko sharing a set again so soon.

    EDIT: Just realized this could also possibly mean a "pre-spark version of a PW". I know it would look a bit woozy but it's canonical that supplemental sets don't follow the normal MtG continuity, kinda like the Kenriths appeared in Battlebond despite their sparks igniting in Eldraine. We could theoretically see pre-spark Wrenn, for example - funny how Wrenn would perfectly fit the "Legendary Creature - Dryad Druid" description too.

    • a card sharing something never shared before
    I'm going assume that by "sharing" MaRo means "distributing some kind of quality between cards", kinda like what Odric, Lunarch Marshal does. Or it could be "sharing" in a game mechanic sense, like "all players share graveyards" or something like that. Still an interesting concept.

    • “untap each creature you control, then tap any number of creatures you control”
    This probably hints at a tapping/untapping mechanic in the set. Q is very unlikely, so maybe the return of Inspired? It has a flavor that fits Strixhaven, though I'm not sure which school it would fit into. Probably UR/Prismari, as Inspired does evokes the idea of both artistry and motion, while U is the main color of tapping/untapping while R is the main color of attacking which also triggers Inspired.


    Forgot about Wrenn and Six - wasn't there some Wrenn and Six-ish art released already?

    • a planeswalker you know, but not as you know them



    why them? We know The twins are the MDFC teaser so it can't be them.


    Also could just be gender neutral. IIRC, the wanderer's pronouns are They/Them ...

    Despite being grammatically incorrect, it is socially OK to ask to be referred to as they/them instead of a gendered pronoun, so I don't think that gives us a ton to work with.

    This is honestly the best reason I've ever seen for necro'ing a post.

    Bravo sir.

    Yeah, "Barry's Land" has arrived.


    Sadly, not Barry's Land.

    Not sure you followed your own advice there, sassy.

    "WHAT IF" there were no mythics.

    That would circumvent any presuppositions, including stated facts from the company (not included in this thread...)

    What if there are no mythics? Or what if they use old Timeshifted bois as Mythics???

    This product is aimed at dudes like me who absolutely loved the complex, nuanced limited environment that TSP block was, as well as a desire to see newer cards in old frames. I've already pre-ordered two boxes to draft with the homies.

    As far as value goes, last I checked Mana Tithe was worth a couple bucks, porphyry nodes was a couple.

    If they don't print Damnation, gemstone caverns, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Sliver Legion, Tarmogoyf, akroma's memorial, man... there's so many good reprintables in the block.

    I don't know what y'all are complaining about.

    Sell your Uro's now at buylist, flip into new border ones and get two extra titans? Seems good to me.

    They won't do it.

    When coldsnap camp out, they included the reprint Frozen Solid and there was a big long discussion about why they "can't" change the functionality of cards that much. Same thing came up when tribal spells were introduced.

    I feel like dead of winter would have had the snow super type if they wanted it to- were they designing Kaldheim in the final stages of MH or has it been that long since MH?

    I'm with you. I would love to see them drop snow on a bunch of appropriate cards, but they're very cautious with the snow supertype.

    So instead of Valla, Immursturm is now on Kaldheim?


    I bet they retcon it like this:
    Immersturm is named in honor of the city of Immersturm on the plane of Valla where the gods of Kaldheim live.

    Also, those arts look like dual land arts. The first 5 even look to be in order (WU/UB/BR/RG/GW)

    Uncommon scry draw that gives you back the mana you spent if your topend is the right tribe / changeling. (and it's ramp in that case) Seems reasonable.

    Lorwyn had giants in white-red, but why were they white at that time? I don't remember but given that they don't like white having big creatures at common, moving giants from white into blue makes a lot of sense even before you consider the frost giant trope.

    Will we see a tribal-oriented jeskai giant for commander?


    I know that’s the mistake with making giants izzet now the giant tribal legend needs to be jeskai now


    oh by the way she had some music files wizards gave her decoded to actually be images so we need those posted too


    Ruhan of the Fomori says hi.
