That Teysa's art is epic fail. She looks like a generic mage. She had never cast a spell, except of the verity circle, for Yawgmoth's sake.
The rest are really good. Angry Zegana looks weird,though.

Jan 11, 2019I really do not get the name. Namely, the singular of "spark". Italian, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese use also singular but:Posted in: The Rumor Mill
French name is La Guerre des Planeswalkers
German name is Krieg der Funken (War of the SparkS)...

You'd figure the GRUUL planeswalker's would be an ass kicking machine not this crap.
Wait, does he look different anywhere else?
Now seriously: the best Domri art is the PW deck one. The standard version is at best a grear meme material,as shown already.

Well, thanks for saving me some time checking this, was a bit confused after comparing the german name to the thread title. They definitley blew some translations, especially in the earlier sets...
You are welcome.
And to add the final piece of info (that a friend shown me after I told him this), the Portal card Mobilize in German edition of Portal is also [b]Mobilisierung[/b] , making it two different cards with the exact same name in German.

Ruf zu den Waffen is LITERALLY "Call to Arms". However, that card already appeared in Ice Age (Call to Arms). But it was translated as "Mobilmachung", which, in turn, means Mobilization, that had, in turn to take the name "Mobilisierung", when it got German printing.

Persistent Petitioners 1U
Creature - Human Advisor
1, tap: Target players mills 1.
Tap four untapped Advisors you control: Target players mills 12.
A deck can have any number of cards named Persistent Petitioners.

Also, this is the last missing guildmage from RNA.
1R, t: Target creature cannot block this turn.
2G, t: Target land you control becomes a 4/4 Elemental with haste until EOT. It is still a land.

English name is from the filename from the very page (cindervines_it_png....)
Whenever an opponent casts a noncreature spell, Cindervines deal 1 damage to that player.
1: Sacrifice Cindervines: Destroy target artifact or enchantment. Cindervínes deal 2 damage to that permanent's controller.

Guildpact, not Gatewatch. And yes, the name is a placeholder.
Jan 7, 2019Posted in: Magic StorylineQuote from The Fluff »on Weatherlight he has a quarrel with others and immediately left (to Ravnica).
Who did Jace have a quarrel with on the weatherlight, and why? I did not know that part of the story.
Long story short:
- Jace: *planeswalks in* Do not trust Liliana, she is just using you all, like she used me and all of us before, etc. Bolas is going to attack Ravnica, I need you all there. Ostentatively ignoring Liliana.
- Liliana: ?!???
- Gideon: yeah, yeah, but the Cabal is bad and getting rid of Belzenlok is in greater Dominarian public good (in addition to being extremely for Liliana's good), and I trust her, and I do not want to repeat my mistakes from Amonkhet here.
- Jace: I understand, but there is no time to spare, I need you on Ravnica now. You coming, Chandra?
- Chandra: Sorry, I am not coming either, because I now have a chance to learn more about myself here.
- Jace: Whatever. See you on Ravnica. *planeswalks*

Mar 15, 2018Caranthir posted a message on Dominaria Spoiler Digest - Who's Who and What's What from the Release NotesPosted in: ArticlesQuote from Formless_One »No, the Baron Sengir and Grandmother Sengir come from Ulgothra. However, Grandmother Sengir is actually a planeswalker named Ravi who knew the Baron when he was young and as I understand it before he was a vampire. Then she went insane after pulling an Urza and blowing up most of Ulgothra. But the plane has a planar portal that most likely connects to Dominaria, and who knows? Maybe the Baron and his "Grandmother" did some traveling around the Multiverse at some point.
The Baron is NOT from Ulgrotha. He is from an unknown plane, he was brought to Ulgrotha by an unknown walker and stranded there. He might be originally from Dominaria, as we seen Sengir vampires there...but there is not enough info either to confirm or dismiss it.
Granny is a former planeswalker and one-time friend of the Baron who had a hand in him becoming vampire. See here: https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Ravi

odah's paragraph is quite wild.
"(Jodah) was also present during the Phyrexian Invasion and helped restore Urza's sanity during that time" - this is wholly incorrect, where you got it?
- one of the primary contributous to Worldspell - not quite, he had to provide his mirror and was forced to utilize (and in the process, consume) the safe havens to distribute the excess energy of the spell to prevent another Sylex Blast.
It is debatable, whether Evra, Halcyon Witness is what we think. After all, we have seen Halcyon Glaze. But using this very particular name on Dominaria and NOT tying it to THE Halcyon would be immensely stupid.
Kolo Meha was above all a Bogardan fire mage, but with ties to Madara, of course.
Gix was not Glacian's kíller. He attacked and wounded him, but Yawgmoth "killed" him by his treattment.
Mar 12, 2018Caranthir posted a message on Dominaria Spoiler Digest - Who's Who and What's What from the Release NotesSome minor corrections:Posted in: Articles
- Primevals' rebirth was one of the climaxes of Planeshift,not Invasion
- Karn's Temporal Sundering is probably the time machine explosion also depicted on Sunder, not the Tolarian rift closure.
- Sagas get counters on the beginning of the precombat main phase
- Mirari was just one of Karn's probes, and a faulty one (it shouldn't be leaking power)
Jan 13, 2008Great pics, James Losing Miles had to hurt, indeed. I like your choice of team....playing with Miles and Phobeya together is one of my preferred combinations. Just add Harass and you got my fav "supervillain" team. But Sil is powerful with any high-damage super character.Posted in: Hydrokinesis's Blog
