    This picture is interesting because it's clearly showing Bolas bringing all the different pieces of his plan together. The Planar Bridge, the Eternal Army, The Immortal Sun, and Liliana. The interesting thing here is that it never really occurred to me that Liliana would be a piece of Bolas' plan. She's a useful tool to have in his back pocket, but I didn't get the impression that she actually plays an active role in his scheme. He couldn't really have planned for her to off her last two demons so quickly, could he?

    Actually, now that I think about it, the last thing Bolas supposedly does before enacting his plans on Ravnica is yoink Liliana from Dominaria, which I suppose would imply that he was waiting for her to finish off her demons, doesn't it?

    She still has possession of the Chain Veil, right? Maybe Veil+Immortal Sun+Planar Bridge = some sort of "end of days" scenario. I don't know. Probably some excuse to bring back Eldrazi again.

    Spellbombs are good, but what do you all think about running ravenous trap for graveyard hate instead? Plays for free off an opposing faithless looting, and has that better "feel-good" synergy with young P.

    I have 3 copies sleeved up in my sideboard for my next FNM (very phoenix/shadow/dredgy meta) and was wondering if anyone has been disappointed with it over other gy hate strategies (leyline of the voids are too expensive for me).

    I'm a little tired of the Super Friends story arc, so I'm hoping this spells the deaths of a lot of planeswalkers.



    Though I know it won't.

    They have stated that the next block will wrap up the Bolas arc.
    So there's that to hang your hat on.


    Well that's all well and good, but really that just sounds like a setup for WotC's The Avengers 3: Rise of [Insert Another Enemy]. I know that they've polled the market or whatever and now every story is revolving around the Gatewatch but it's pretty bland if you ask me.

    Seems like a good sb card for some modern decks like Jund or Zoo (2019 The Return of the Zoo???).

    This could've possibly seen play in modern as an instant, but as it stands is probably fine in standard burn.
