    It has two main arms (like Sliver Queen) on opposite sides if its body, they're just a little bit lower than you'd expect. The smaller arm beneath its head is comes out from behind its body, just from around where the arm in the foreground starts. It's just being extended.


    So the arms beneath its head are just a collar of little claws around the neck? Now it makes more sense, thank you Smile

    As much as I love our new lord and savior, can someone help me understand the art a bit more? The central arm is the one under his head, the little claws after the two big ones are beneath him, so far I get it, but everything after the “hip” part is a messing with my head. From the armored part on his back it looks like the central arm would be on his back and he has turned his head by 180°, which wouldn’t make much sense. I know I am overthinking things here, but after seeing the full art, I just cannot wrap my head around it.

    Wondering if it just marketing material, or if Liliana really manages to get out of Bolas clutches this fast.

    So the set code is indeed mtgwar

    http://markrosewater.tumblr.com/post/181929854438/is-war-of-the-sparks-set-code-wos-or-war-or-what

    And as the name already suggested, it will be on Ravnica, without a focus on the guilds

    Here's a link to confirm that this is indeed on the Coming Soon page. The timing would suggest this is the name of the as-yet-unnamed third Ravnica set, and the background art resembles Ravnica...in ruins.


    Thanks for the link, Liliana looks very calm here.

    Is there anything about the angel with 4 wings topic? In the original Ravnica it was stated that the angels are all clones of Razia, which means they would also have 4 wings. When Return to Ravnica came around they suddenly had 2 wings, like Aurelia. Is it stated anywhere if this is a new flock and the Razia clones "died out", which also wouldn’t work, because we saw one in the Boros story we got.

    Edit: fixed the names, thanks Maritrakul


    Nope I'm sorry.


    Already thought so, sad to see, but thank you Smile

    And add insult to the injury with Feather... I think she was even left out in the lore about Boros in the GM Guide (as I read around here). They really hate her a lot for some reason. :p



    Then they would have to address the whole wing topic, which brings me back to a question I had since forever.

    Last of the info. There is a ton more like sections on the differnt races in each of the guilds and such so I encourage everyone who is a vorthos to buy the book, though most the info is focused on the current timeline and dosnt delve to much into the past. Of note it ties down that the all we know about the simic parun is they had the first or last name of Simic and they are non-human, as was all the paruns at the signing of the guildpact.

    Until recently Vannifar was kind of an outsider to the guild, wanting more direct and faster action (with the other like minded member being called the Adaptationist movement) than the more passive Zegana (the Utopian movement). Jace missing has caused the the guilds to have tension, Vannifar more action based philosophy gain popularity. Then after Zegana had needed Vannifar to help against the golgari, under Vraska, who where trying to take a zonot that was in the under city for themselves. After this Vannifar challenged Zegana in the speaker counsel and she was voted in as guild master. Under Vannifar the simic started to mutate the more intelligent members into super soldiers. Vannifar is an elf who had mutated her body into an ooze that gives her a jellyfish look. She can absorb oxygen through her skin and can rest parts of her brain at different times so she doesn't need to sleep.


    Thanks for the summary Smile

    Is there art for her in the artbook that you would be able to post? So far we have the picture from the marketing material, but that is not her card art, or is it?


    Welcome, I can snap a pic if you still want, though her card was spoiled.


    Would be nice, the cardart is always so small, thank you Smile


    Did my best since the art is spread across 1.5 pages;




    Thank you, I will never understand why they spread art across pages.

    Thanks a lot for the summary! Is there anything more on the vedalken, or is it just boring so you did not write it here?



    There is not much, basically this:

    There mindset seems to be similar to the Kaladesh vedalken, they believe that nothing is perfect and every imperfection is a chance for improvement, that progress is an endless march that can never be finished. Ravnica vedalken lack external ears and they are partially amphibious (in game it lets you breathe underwater for one hour if you absorbed oxygen through your skin). They are talkative but like to keep their emotions to themselves, which makes them seem cold to other people. Friendship for them is formed through mutual interests or compelling disagreements, but their interactions dwell more on the thoughts about those things, rather than their feelings about them.

    Funny that Zegana, the peaceful ex leader of the guild, can slap the more "war/fighting" oriented new leader of the guild in both of her printings and survive Grin

    Okay, the first one Prime Speaker Zegana needs a bit help, but still.
