    I'm fairly sure that Gideon is still a rare. That version posted is the masterpiece edition, which by default are marked mythic.


    Maro just confirmed Gideon is one of the Mythics. Also he mentioned the the Mythic planeswalkers have four "slots" to play with. Gideon appears to have two static abilities with two loyalty abilities.

    I'm not sure if that confirms these, but so far they are passing the sniff test at least.

    That makes sense. I guess that means Ugin is a Rare or Uncommon then?

    Agreed. Almost assuredly a rare.

    Updated my post with full text of all new cards.

    Gideon says -6 instead of -4 I think.

    Yeah, I think you're right. Looked like a 4 at first.

    Here’s something better

    https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/closer-look-stained-glass-planeswalkers-2019-03-08

    The art of the stained glass up close

    They better actually show some info about ashiok this time instead of making this walker a nobody

    Something better? It's the same link!

    why are we all assuming its 36 planeswalkers and not... 5? one for each color? or 10, one for each guild?

    also i'm less interested in the planeswalkers being here, and more interested to see the planeswalker interactions/hate thats printed here

    This has already been discussed numerous times. The trailer included art for 36 Planeswalkers. MaRo confirmed they're all art for cards in the set. He's then teased via Blogatog both 30+ Planeswalkers and the potential for Uncommon Planeswalkers.

    So, crazy thought, maybe not all the planeswalkers are in the set. We get the one promo that is a rare or mythic from War like normal, and the second is a promo version of one of 36 planeswalkers, but not all of them appear in the set and those that don't aren't playable in Standard (unless already printed there).

    This just sucks for me since I collect prerelease promos.

    MaRo confirmed on Blogatog a while back that all of the Planeswalker arts are for cards in the set.
    Quote from AtraxianShade »
    Franky I wasn't counting the Chinese-only walkers same way I didn't count the Commander and Battlebond ones.

    There was an analysis of the art on here a while back and pointed them as in.

    I wouldn't be surprised to learn at this point it was something like: 20 Uncommon, 10 Rare, 5 Mythic, 1 Box Topper.

    Yeah, these numbers sound right to me.

    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

    http://markrosewater.tumblr.com/post/183255420598/will-there-ever-be-a-planeswalker-at-uncommon

    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 sense an incoming Hero's Downfall reprint

    I have been telling my friends this for a while. Artwork would feature Bolas murdering either a Planeswalker or Guild leader.
    If they're doing a Dominaria-esque distribution of rarities, there's a pretty big question worth asking.

    What planeswalkers would wizards really relegate to uncommon?

    ...

    Other than Tibalt, obviously.

    I feel like the five from Guilds and Allegiance would be prime candidates for Uncommon cards, too.

    Uh oh

    Brace yourselfs for more planes walkers that has Ben in a set ever and also being rare level like back in Lorwyn (here they were first introduced)

    Any wagers that some to all could end up with the “can be your commander” text box?

    MaRo said that would never appear in a Standard legal set.

    I'm in on Rare and Uncommon Planeswalkers, though.
    Posted in: The Rumor Mill

    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.
