    Three Rock Decks. A new UW Control Variant. Red Prion And Elzdrazi Tron seems like a fun event. SPICY

    Red Prison feels like it was Red Aggro straight out of Kaladesh Standard. But Juiced with Modern Improvements.
    UW Control though no Jace and Terminus with Gideon and Settle in, Awaken Horror, Sphinx's Revelation. Dang I am in love.

    Which reminds do we think War of the Spark is going to print Walkers that can Challenge JTMS, Both Lilis, Teferi, Ugin, Karn and apparently Chandra and Gideon? Poor Green. Will the Pantheon add some new Gods?

    I mean it spoils that Chandra, Ajani and Tibalt survive and Chandra has some PTSD but you certainly don't get the impression reading the comic that Bolas achieved total victory and slaughtered most of their friends or that Ravnica is gone as a Plane. Now it seems some people died and Ravnica took some damage. But Chandra and Ajani act way to casual to make me think anyone is prepping another fight against Bolas. The comic is like 2 months olds and all that stuff is in the first issue.

    I suppose that means the book is being written for non magic players? Otherwise I don't see the point of POV character. But good just what we need another human walker eating up screen time with all the walkers we already have running around.

    I am saying tri colors are rare but Aminatou not in the main storyline and thus Esper is pretty open. I mean her card design was interesting and the other new walker looked pretty generic she had soft competition. And while she is another Human at least being a child makes her different.

    Fair enough Spell Sealing is pretty UB.

    Elspeth doesn't make sense and you think they want to Rez her on page, panel, etc. Also Lili makes sense Bolas just grabbed her and she can control Zombies and Bolas has a Eternal Army now. Elspeth isn't a necromancer granted she could come back changed post Theros Underworld

    Fully Digital that is one way to fix card quality complaints.

    Fair enough. I mean they did make an Esper Walker recently but eh she is in Commander. Dimir is I guess fairly open since dual color walkers are prominent then tricolor. Doesn't fit with the guild but he be different from Ashiok so that is plus. Still we got shocklands so its not like a Grixis Manabase is all that taxing if he is UB. Could make a cool UBControl Deck with him I guess. Still UB is weird colors if he is a Demonolgist so probably best off as monoblack. His theme doesn't fit Dimir or Esper that great. A quick says only 4 Demons or Devils with Blue exist. Could make more I guess, its pretty open after B and R. They could make Grixis I guess he did like the finer things in life and that fit Demon and Devil Summoner way better but WOTC doesn't want annoy Sanderson so he is probably monoblack.

    Which reminds what is the point of Teferi and Ajani being in the Gatewatch if they play second fiddle in the marketing to Nissa who quit and Vivien who is not even on the Gatewatch. I mean yes Ajani has been on the team for awhile but Teferi they just had him join so you think they want to know have him do relevant things and be in the marketing. But nope have not been a fan of Teferi treatment in general storywise or marketing wise. Now his card they did right by him but storyline wise...

    Watch the "epic romance" between Lili and Gideon Romance that only started in Dominaria play a pivotal roll I bet Jace and them will be the main characters on the Hero side. Even if Lili starts under Bolas control. It took valuable time away from Teferi, Karn and Jaya. Jhoira got her story time but even then we spent more time on the romance then the reunion between Teferi, Jhoira and Karn which was what 10 years real time and like 60+ in Universe. I mean sheesh Gideon suppose to be the Paladin that means no wanting bang evil necromancers that are technically heroes but use to slaughter people for fun. Is he going to forgive a certain God or does this redemption and mercy only count when he wants to bang them. Wasnt he interested in Chandra? Then again I think they have struggled figuring out what to do with Gideon in general.

    What about some partner Walkers...Two Walkers on the same card? The trick though is making sure you dont get two many three color cards but should be doable with 36 options.

    I mean this plane does have lots of demons and devils so he fit right in.
    What colors is he suppose to be I assume Black at minimum? Although he is not really Red which doesn't really fit Rakdos I guess its fine if he is monoblack. Maybe a devil and demon tribal like sarkhan fireblood.

    I bet they push his card considering who wrote him. Card wise.

    He was a fun character though although I am still tired of so many Humans. I hope he the last one for awhile.

    The way you put 36 (37?) PWs in a set and not screw everything up is to make them all flipwalkers and only one can flip at a time (they hold the Spark).

    While this is my own theory, I think I believe just '36 Legendary creatures' more because making 36 PWs for one set has got to burn through a LOT of design space.

    The main mark against them being 'just' Legendary creatures is that the art is all art that can/should be put on PW cards.


    That doesn't seem like too much of a restriction. If the Walker is strong enough.

    Problem is they cannot print counting everyone who has a Walker what two dozen walkers and make them all weak and garbage. Not accounting for rotation since we dont know what plane is next.

    I think temp spark loss is likely. Be interesting to see if sticks especially if just the Gatewatch keeps their sparks.

    Are we talking about the Show or the Books? I mean WOTC has a got a Wide Cast of Walkers and the last one to die was Elspeth? Since the end of the Urza Saga. Only what three Walkers have died? Venser, Xenagos and Elspeth? The last two might not even be truly dead since Theros afterlife works different. Think Game of Thrones even in the Show has killed more significant characters then that.

    I mean the problem with say Koth showing up is why would he care about Ravnica. I mean Phyrexia is a threat on the level of Bolas and no one is helping him. Karn will come back eventually but I don't see why Koth would give an ef about Ravnica.

    I would say legendary creature would be temp as trapping characters who don't care about Ravnica on Ravnica would be a waste of time.
