    Random thought I just had for this:

    What with the end of the Bolas storyline, there is likely to be little reason to revisit certain places meaning it is likely to see legendary creatures from these planes (Amonkhet, Kamigawa, etc.).

    I could possibly see a deck that included a two- or three-color version of "Hazoret, the God-Survivor," possibly in Boros / Naya colors?

    Not sure what they would do with it, but she didn't get a card in WAR, and with the story a return is unlikely but... The possibility to offer a vignette into current life on Amonkhet through a Commander product seems like an opportunity they might take.


    That is an interesting theory. They could also make tri colour legends out of the Scarab and Locus gods too. They are still alive and just warped by Bolas magic unlike the fully dead God-Eternals. Maybe they shift back now that Bolas magic is gone?

    Ah you are right. I hadn't see the Force of Virtue Angel in larger detail (so missed the hair).

    Flying getting a lot of Love is in the air lately.

    Another great angel tribal commander too! The art is amazing.

    EDIT: Looking at the art more closely. I wonder if she's the angel depicted in Force of Virtue?

    I was hoping with the new Tolsimir we would get more wolf support. Did not expect it this early so this is a nice surprise. Dare I hope that Commander 2019 has even more support?

    Now I'm just torn on if I want to put my Gruul werewolf tribal EDH deck back together for this lord or just slot him into my Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves EDH deck instead. Decisions, decisions.

    Damn. What has happened to Theros?


    Well, last we saw Theros, Ajani was spreading the truth about the gods as manifestations of belief (this is how Xenagos was able to become a god, after all) and telling people to stop believing in them, out of revenge for Heliod killing Elspeth. The temples have most likely been destroyed as a result of that.
    The temples don't look destroyed. Also, Theros is very adherent to its pantheon, I highly doubt Ajani accomplished as much as he'd like to believe he did.

    I do wish these had been the enemy cycle of the BFZ Tango-lands, or whatever we're calling them. I really wanted a UG one.


    Eh, they're not necessarily destroyed, but they're in bad shape and most of them look dilapidated. For example, compare the new art on Temple of Mystery to the original art - the branches on the trees making up the center of the temple are completely bare. This is pretty much true for the other temples (Temple of Malady is overgrown with vines and the cauldron is cracked, etc.), but Temple of Triumph looks just as, if not more impressive than before.


    It will be interesting when we go back because the nature of the Theros pantheon (fueled by devotion) makes them all very flexible. Depending on how eroded the beliefs are on the plane now all of the gods could be very different. And there may even be new ones!

    The art on these is lovely and makes me jealous we aren't getting allied pairs since I play those more.

    Those elk! Slowly but surely I'll get to have my elk/antelope EDH deck.

    The art on these is so nice. Now I want them to re-do the allied cycle with updated art.

    Yeah. Not sure how to feel about thinking that about the most evil being in MTG lore Laughing

    The art for this is stunning!

    Between this and the new Tolsimir. I really think we are getting a Norse theme set soon with additional bear and wolf support.

    My Trostani deck is thrilled to welcome this beauty.

    Absolutely! I tend to only take a deck apart if I want to build a new one and need key cards in that deck. But I'm always sad to do it and in some instances I re-make the deck if the other deck I build doesn't go according to plan.

    From Maro's article today;

    Kasmina filled another of our monocolor uncommon planeswalker slots we didn't have a character for. Six other characters have appeared on a mono-blue planeswalker card (Jace, Mu Yanling, Tamiyo, Teferi, Tezzeret, and Will Kenrith). Jace was a rare card. Tamiyo appeared as a rare green-blue card, Teferi appeared as a rare white-blue card, and Tezzeret was the Buy-a-Box promo. We had other plans for both Mu Yanling and Will Kenrith, so that opened up a slot for a new character. We had an interesting idea for a Planeswalker for a future story, so this was the perfect opportunity to introduce her. I don't want to say too much about Kasmina, but I will say her abilities were made to match her character as a small tease of things to come.


    I'm curious about "other plans" for Yanling and Will (as well as seeing more on Kasmina). Kaya for example was written for this storyline and was put in Conspiracy take the crown to introduce her so it might be a lot of these side set walkers might be the lead in a future storyline.


    I am very curious what they have planned for Will (and I assume Rowan). I was always sorry they had no lore attached to them when BB released.

    I may have missed this so apologies if it was already mentioned. I did look and didn't see it though. Does Ilharg appear or do anything in the story? It seemed like a big deal that Ravnica suddenly became a plane with a physically manifesting god...and then we got nothing?
