Quote from Descendant of Urza »
Black can use certain kinds of mind magic for sure, but I don't think it can steal spells, that seems very blue to me. I tried to find an existing Magic card that captures what Davriel's magic does (both mechanically and in terms of flavor) and the only really good fit seems to be Psychic Intrusion.
With that said, I fully accept that not every planeswalker card has to be all colors of the character. This just isn't what I expected after reading the novella, that's all.
Quote from Zephyr Scarlet »Unless MaRo has confirmed that Adapt counts as the returning mechanic (also wasn't the returning mechanic supposed to be from the guild itself like Selesnya and Convoke?) it's all but certain that Azorious is Detain, which would be right in line with all the uninspired-creature centric mechanics this set is bringing to the table.
Quote from FlossedBeaver »I'm sorry you feel that pretty women are underrepresented in fantasy genres.
Again, I haven't read the novel, so I'm on shaky ground here, but - do we know how old she's supposed to be? Is it possible that her art is depicting just one solitary moment in the entire span of her lifetime, possibly in her older years? Is it possible that, in the years leading up to the moment of her depiction in the card, she was as beautiful as you insist she must be to match the narrative within your mind?
