    I'm pretty sure it's 5G instead of 5GG. Looking at Ravnica at War, for example, we can see that 'mtgstory.com' line ends right near the corner of the frame, which definitely doesn't allow space for another mana symbol.

    Nope. This is missing the rarity symbol, so unless there's a gigantic empty spot on the mana line for some reason, it is 5GG.

    Per MaRo, no mono color or two color pair is represented twice in the Rare Walkers, so Vivien cannot be a Mono Green Rare.

    I would guess that Ugin is rare or uncommon. Here is my reasoning:

    uncommon: 5 mono + 10 hybrid colors
    rare: 5 mono + 10 two colors
    colorless: 2 cards (Ugin + Karn)
    mythic: 4 cards
    BaB: Tezzert

    Makes 36 + 1 Walker.

    If there are 4 mythic walker and Karn is rare I would actually guess that Ugin is uncommon.

    This math is wrong. It was confirmed in panel that there are 20 Uncommon walkers, 13 Rare walkers, and 3 Mythic walkers, as well as Tezzeret as a promo. Bolas is also the only three color Planeswalker.

    MaRo confirmed the Uncommons are two of each mono color, plus 1 of each two color hybrid mana pair.

    Ugin is 100% a Rare if he's still colorless.

    I don’t see Planeswalkers ever going to uncommon. They would have to be so weak as to be pointless at that rarity. Weaker than Tibalt is entirely pointless and I would prefer no uncommon Planeswalkers over bad ones.

    Funny how today Rosewater didn't rule it out


    That's quite literally why it's being discussed. MaRo chooses what questions he wants to answer, so he clearly wants people to know that it's possible.

    I think this will mirror Dominaria a bit, with a cycle or two of Planeswalkers at Uncommon at a much lower power level. Much like that set, the majority of the Walkers pulled will be Uncommon in the prerelease packs.

    So going by today's MaRo article and his mention of a Leshrac Planeswalker card, I think the other art we saw is possibly Leshrac.

    Laboratory Maniac is super interesting as an Uncommon.

    Really cute design. If it's not real, it should be.

    Fits right into the mega-cycle of:
    Cone of Flame
    Incremental Growth
    Incremental Blight
    Bestial Menace

    Wow. Just now I am noticing this pattern. Surprised there's nothing on white yet.

    Too bad this card isn't called Incremental Necromancy.
