I think someone said that Jace arrives near the end of the story. He was on Ixalan for a few months.Quote from petercal »Quote from SteamMage »I predict we'll meet up with Weatherlight II early on since they'll need a means of conveyance. Plus when going up against a evil organization, having some backup would be nice.
I thought Jace planeswalked onto Weatherlight already, given he aimed for something traveling extremely fast and he's standing in the slime left by Slimefoot, the Stowaway when he boarded that vehicle and sees Gideon and Jaya.

I figure Benalia and the Serran Religion would mesh fairly well.Quote from Perkunas687 »Any hint of what the new Serran/Benalish combo is going to be like, as far as temperament? I'm trying to remember the angels of Serra's plane. I know Radiant went off, managed to kind-of kill Urza, and was war-like. But I don't think all the angels were like that. And Benalia was about honor, chivalry, knights, and all that, as far as I recall. So are they the 'good guys,' through and through?
As far as Teferi being considered a hero of Dominaria, I can't speak for the Planar Chaos and Future Sight books (which were the two out of the three NOT in ebook form for whatever reason) as to what Teferi did after he lost his spark, but it's probably safe to assume that of all the characters still alive, who have as much experience and power, and who care about the average person more than the average Planeswalker used to, Teferi is best placed to be a savior figure for Dominaria. How he achieves this, I guess we don't know yet.
Question: if there are Bolas themes for Dominaria, does that imply the visions Jace had of Bolas' plans for Ravnica may have been false? In my mind, to an ancient dragon, Dominaria may be more important that Ravnica.
Also, I am still unconvinced that any Weatherlight in this set is the original Weatherlight. The Apocalypse book was unambiguous that Sisay rode the dead ship into the ocean after Yawgmoth was defeated, it cracked and broke, and it sank into the ocean. "The impact had split the keel." " . . . ocean poured into the wide open hull." "Explosions below . . ." "She swam out of the wreckage . . ." "The broken hull of Weatherlight sank furiously." "Then it's outline . . . disappeared forever. There would never be another ship like Weatherlight."
It is unequivocal that the ship is wrecked, destroyed, and sunk. So it can't be the old Weatherlight come back. If it is, 1) the story is going to be outlandish. We dove down, used merfolk, pulled up the debris, hammered it together, Multani kissed it, and it was all better? What? 2) Wizards would be resurrecting something from a heroic and fitting end just for nostalgia sales and story. If you read the books that involved Weatherlight, then you have an inkling that it went down as heroic as an 'inanimate' object could be. I would howl just as much if Gerrard or Barrin or Urza were ressurected! Let the dead rest!
Rant over. I am eager to see what the story will tell us! I'm all aboard the hype train, for now.
Teferi was the guy who went into that first rift, sealing it without knowing if he'd come back. And after, I believe he said he'd go traveling, perhaps becoquino a court mage again. And maybe his title, "Hero of Dominaria" is something he gets in this story.
Bolas' connection to the main story on Dominaria may only be to bring Lilliana fully into his service. I think he want something connected to Ravnica, and while he probably would want to reclaim Madara at least, he's more about regaining his power than past glories.
I hope the Weatherlight II is a new ship. Perhaps Multani gifts Jhoira a weathersead to make the new ship.
Mar 15, 2018Anyone have a clue how long Jace was on Ixalan? I seem to recall he spent a few weeks( at least two) on Useless Island and a few days at ses before Vraska stumbled upon him. And few weeks from then to find the Sun. So my count is somewhere between one and a half to three months.Posted in: Magic Storyline

After Bolas's resurrection, he went on a hunt to wipe out the bloodline of the man who 'killed' him, as well as the being who sent the first Umezawa to Dominaria.Quote from scottjhebert »Tetsuko is indeed a female name under traditional Japanese naming rules. 3-mora name ending in -ko is >99% chance female. (I literally cannot think of an exception.)
Where did she come from, though? She would have to be a descendant of Tetsuo, who was a descendant of Toshiro, no? This points more and more to the fact that she is a fugitive from Nicol Bolas. I'm guessing that she was 'on ice' somewhere in the Meditation Realm and somehow got out.
I mean, people more knowledgeable of the history than I please inform me, because AFAIK Legends (and Tetsuo) was WAY too far in the past for there to be a direct link, no?
She( I agree that Tetsuko is a female name) is most likely a Fugitive from Bolas and his minions, thought given her great-ancestor, she could be a regular fugitive, running from the Cabal or Serra Order

"Have you heard the good news of Urza today"
Feb 20, 2018Just realized, Bolas thinks Azor a golden statue now, assuming that he belived Vraska's false memoeries. So from his prepective, two of his greatest enimies( Ugin and Azor) are no longer an issue. Will be interesting if Jace somehow orchestrates Azor's re-sparking and has him and Ugin as Aces in the hole.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Feb 18, 2018Teferi may not have actually lost his spark when he sealed the Zhivian rift. It'd be kinda a callback that he was rendered a NeoWalker and just didn't know for years, like what happened when he sparked the first time.Posted in: The Rumor Mill

Vraska did mention she hadn't been on a date in a while in one of the stories, The Race, part 1 I think.Quote from Etherium Sage »Quote from Davinel »Quote from Etherium Sage »Quote from Davinel »
Also,concerning the date between Vraska and Jace... when you are a powerful, hardened, veteran killer fighting regularly in medieval worlds, you can't understand or be appealed by the concept of dating, that's just silly.
Call it a rendez-vous, a meeting, a briefing, an attack plan or whatever but not a date, that's ridiculous
None of those are appropriate terms for a casual night on the town.
English is not my native language but "meeting" seems good enough.
The point wasn't to find an appropriate term anyways, just to not call this a date.
Considering "date" is in her vocabulary, why wouldn't she use it? Also we're talking about the same woman who reads history books and memoirs, and goes to different worlds to collect decorations for her flat, in her spare time. Vraska isn't a simple character. For all we know (as I don't remember if this is canon or not), she might have entertained the notion before, but thought it'd never work because of who she is and what she does.

I hope when/if she meets Tezzeret she feels the need to petrify him, without knowing why.Quote from cyberium_neo »Vraska reading a memoir, Jace's favorite genre.
Even without the memory of him, Vraska somehow compensated. I love tiny details like that.
Feb 14, 2018I wonder if we'll get a dual storyline, like how they dealt with the Jace/Vraska plot line running along side with Huatli/Angrath/Planar Natives. We'll get Lilliana and Gideon taking on the demon while Karn, Jhoria and Teferi do something else(Geting the skyship up and running, fighting the Cabal, ect) with the two running into eachother before the end.Posted in: Magic Storyline

I really wish these things get ironed out. I can handle some things not getting mentoned in the story, like how High and Dry came into being, but when we have two or more very different story path, it sends the message that Wizards doesn't seem to care about the storyQuote from Firebead_elvenhair »I don't possess the art book, but reading this forum makes me wonder.... Why they write this artbooks with the glaring differences from the story then presented through the articles?! I mean, I can understand (however I don't) when all those inconsistancies between cards, precedent canon and the set novels happened, (like in Scourge) because the cards were created by the people at Wizards and the novels were written by some external authors... but if now the artbooks, the cards and the story all are created in house by Wizards, why there are all these discrepancies? It looks like if the different teams working on a set never communicate one another... are things changed just at the last minute, when the artbook is already in print? They change them a bit too avoid too many spoilers? Who knows...
Jan 9, 2018Posted in: Magic StorylineQuote from Catherine Cook »Quote from archdukeofevil »Can we please actually have Jace and Vraska be a thing (enough with the mind wipe retardation. Seriously read his Wiki Jace's mind is just a whiteboard as many times as its been erased).
I 100% agree with this. I in general find amnesia to be a rather lazy plot device.
And of all the ladies Jace has had tease with, I would be ok with having Vraska be the one who actually gets with him in the end... Because she displayed genuine chemistry with him (as opposed to, say, Liliana just up and deciding she was into him at one point) if nothing else.
I'm rooting for Jace/Vraska but I actually like the idea of Jace wiping Vraska memory, since it opens up some interesting story paths. Assuming that Jace either uploaded Vraska's memory into himself, or buried it deep emough for Bolas not to see it/bother looking for it, Jace has an ace in the hole for the final confrontation, just restore Vraska's memory and boom, one stone dragon.
