    @Legend & @AtraxianShade: wtf? Dude, the fact that it looks like a photoshopped photograph should tell you how great the art is. It’s almost photorealistic, and yet it’s hand-painted. Leave the bath salts alone!

    I can’t understand the people bashing the art. I understand the shade thrown because she doesn’t look Kor, but damn, that is a sweet piece of art.
    The technique is great, but the whole feel of the art and the end result rubs me the wrong way.
    You might be the best cook in the world, but I'll dislike a dish made with pumpkins and aubergines no matter how well it is cooked, this art is a that dish, used as a dessert.

    Scour All Possibilities, I could believe. But I don't recall Gerrard sporting epic sideburns, nor getting fatally stabbed by a spear. That likely is a Benalish Soldier, as the Elf appears to be Llanowar thus setting the card on Dominaria.
    *EDIT Well... He did have sideburns going down connecting to his beard. In Gerrard's Command you can see them... Yet I don't recall him getting skewered by Llanowar elves.

    So... Can we assume that Ayula is the name of the new planeswalker?

    Well, first "fixed" old legendary spoiled and being it in white it lowers the chance of seeing a new Radiant... Oh well... At least it looks like a fun card to play with.
    Nice of Wizards to give a better variety for 5-color commanders.

    Can't shake the feeling I already saw the horned creature and the style of the podium(?) somewhere.
    Can't really put my finger on it.

    Nice how the "give indestructible" ability is not restricted only to a creature of the chosen type.

    Planebound accomplice shows in the background what seems to be the being shown time ago in an art panel (or whatever).
    That is most probably a planeswalker then, which rules out Mishra, Yawgmoth and Gaea.

    How is this different than other planes?
    Some planes are actually fleshed out like Tarkir or in some cases Innistrad. Others have just a specific gimmick that distinguishes them and in the cards you never get to see anything else than 1 or 2 settings.
    - Kaladesh, for example: you only see 1 city full of space indians and artifacts because that was the gimmick of the plane. You never get to explore the wilds or anywhere else.
    - Fiora, all took place inside of Palliano. Never get to see anythign else.
    - Ixalan had the gimmick of dinosaurs and pirates and as such the cards only depicted jungles and seas with a few depicting the ruins of the golden city.
    - Amonkhet was just one city because that was the gimmick: a city sorrounded by desert.

    EDIT: not saying that the planes themselves just have a single kind of environment (some have, tho) but that the way WotC is showing them in their products is so narrow that they might just be a boring snowglobe. Last plane I remember WotC bothered to show more than a couple environments was Zendikar.

    There goes the chance of getting a mythic angel.
    Nice card, tho.

    Morophon, the boundless is almost certainly in an unvisited plane (see the planets / moons in the sky?) and if you look at the extended art, on the ground there is snow and in the background there are animals generally associated with cold areas.
    If the other shapeshifters are from the same plane we can assume that the plane also has desertic areas and is not just an ice-age (the cgi movies) plane, but something more articulated.

    I wouldn't mind visiting a plane like that in a standard set. The snowglobe planes with only a single gimmick to them are quite boring.

    Well... You could play it in some token deck at the end of your opponent's turn and swing for lethal right after or to bait a counterspell.

    That's... Underwhlming, but nice art, at least... Apart from the awkward angel almost facing the camera while pointing the charge in a completely different direction...

    Imagine if they called it "Caterchillar" instead.
    Rolls much better off the tongue.

    The title "Lord High Artificer" is a bit awkward, tho.

    My only wish is that we could get a version with the old border.
    that is what proxies are for. Want that version? Make it yourself at home as soon as a hi-res version of the art hits the internet.
    At least at kitchen-table levels no one would give you problems for that.

    Redundancy to Mother of Runes in EDH is always welcome. I suppose.
    Too bad the art looks like a badly photoshopped real life picture (might be just the low-res attachment, tho), I hate it when card arts look like that.

    Whelp... That's a nice pre-spark Urza.
    Imagine paying 5 to hit an omniscience XD
    At least it is fair as it shuffles your library before revealing the first card, so... Bye bye Sensei's Divining Top builds.

    Now I need a new Selenia, a new Radiant and a new Gabriel. Come on, Wizards!
