    More info from this weekend as promised.

    Rat is a 16 years old girl who doesn't know which guild to join - she thought about Selesnya, Gruul and Rakdos at the same time. She is accompanying Teyo Verada (who happened to be 17 years old if anyone is interested).


    Ajani, Jace and who is the fellow left? Gideon?



    Yep.

    Who is Tacenda Verlasen?

    https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Tacenda_Verlasen


    The second main character from Children of the Nameless, where Davriel was introduced. She likely ascended at the end of the book.

    The 2 ladies (Jaina proudmoore and the winged sword are new) there is a masked one that was introduced recentry in one of the novels and another one that has a thread created (a shield mage) also one of the Chinese walkers.


    I believe the wing-blade lady is Mu Yanling. Lore wise she's a kind of heron deity.


    There is anything more on the two GS walkers than their bios? Because I have no idea where you are getting this info from.

    I know 28 is likely Davriel Cane and I can kind of see the mask almost being similar, but its off colour and I just can't see Davriel wearing anything close to this. And I know its wishful thinking but just the shade of the arms and look of his magic gives me hope that it might be an Aetherborn walker, which could be amazing.


    It is literally his art from the ad to the book. Sorry to burst your dreams.

    HOLY CR*P.

    6 is Teyo Verada.
    28 is Davriel Cane.

    I wonder who is 4) and 12. Of course, 12 may be Raiden., 19 is also unknown.Arlinn Kord.

    Sorin is interesting.

    Aaannnd to all the haters out there who shot down my comments of "Will there ever be a Serra Planeswalker, bon appetite; today's soup of the day is crow, served fresh and hot.


    What are you talking about? I think the discussion was when, not whether, even since the first oldwalker was printed in Commander. I'd understand if you came bragging five years ago, not now. ¨So take a chillpill Wink


    Quote from Stoogeslap »
    But in all seriousness, this is going to be an exciting set. I hope there are more new cards than reprints... don't get me wrong, I imagine there will be some greatly needed reprints of cards that haven't be reprinted, BUT... I do hope new cards outshine the reprints. And here's to hoping this helps keep Modern alive, as a remember a while back there was talks of Modern events being pushed to the side.


    What would be cool and what somebody suggested: Having Feroz as another planeswalker, with his ability referencing Feroz's Ban.
    It would be interesting to see what the ratio of new vs reprints would be. I'd hope at least for the "standard" 70-80nex pieces, as in the supplementary sets like Conspiracy series or Battlebond.

    If i had to take a guess, the image on the left side of the stream could be the phyrexianised mishra after he fused with some of the machines around him


    It looks a lot more like a person fused to a tree, actually.

    Yeah, Teyo is also one of the window arts.

    The "Doctor Strange" walker from the cover of the Ravnica book is Teyo Verada, a freshly-ascenced shieldmage.

    Source

    "Teyo Verada wants nothing more than to be a shieldmage, wielding arcane energies to protect his people from his world’s vicious diamondstorms. When he’s buried alive in the aftermath of his first real tempest, the young mage’s life is about to end before it can truly begin—until it doesn’t. In a flash, a power he didn’t know he had whisks him away from his home, to a world of stone, glass, and wonder: Ravnica. Teyo is a Planeswalker, one of many to be called to the world-spanning city—all lured by Nicol Bolas, the Elder Dragon. Bolas lays siege to the city of Ravnica, hungry for the ultimate prize: godhood itself. His unparalleled magic and unstoppable army appear poised to bring the city to utter ruin.

    Among those who stand in the way of Bolas’s terrifying machinations are the Gatewatch, Planeswalkers sworn to defeat evil, no matter where it’s found. But as they work to unite the other mages and mount a defense of the city and its people, the terrifying truth of Bolas’s plan becomes clear. The Elder Dragon has prepared a trap to ensnare the most powerful mages from across the Multiverse—and it’s too late to escape.

    As forces great and small converge on the city and the battle rages, the stakes could not be higher. If the Gatewatch falters and the Planeswalkers fail, the curtain will fall on the age of heroes—and rise on the infinite reign of Nicol Bolas.


    Since this text is used as blurb for the book, it is quite safe to assume that he will be the POV character.

    Quote from SimicNuggets »
    I don't doubt that a couple Planeswalkers may die, there are quite a few who didn't have the impact that Wizards had hoped they would, or straight up cannon fodder 'walkers that were never meant to be all that important. (Arlinn Kord, Huatli, Tibalt, forgetting a few that literally are forgettable.)

    And if anything, we're definitely gonna lose some Ravnican legends. Sad


    Tibalt is in the new Chandra comics that happens after War of the Spark, so he'll not kick the bucket, sorry.

  • posted a message on New Wizards & Wizkids boardgame - Ravnica Inquisition
    The annex product to Ravnica year, apparently (after AN:NB, Explorers, and Heroes).

    A mafia-style game representing the conflict between Ravnican loyalist guilds and agents of Bolas.

    Release date June 2019 (so it might actually come out before Xmas)




    https://www.gtsdistribution.com/BOARD-GAMES/MAGIC-THE-GATHERING-RAVNICA-INQUISITION.asp

    Description
    Join the Gatewatch or pledge your loyalty to Nicol Bolas in Ravnica: Inquisition, a social deduction game set on the Magic: The Gathering plane of Ravnica. Each player takes on the role of a representative of a Ravnican Guild that is either loyal to the Gatewatch or an Agent of Bolas. The Gatewatch loyalists are tasked with discovering who the Agents of Bolas are, while the Agents of Bolas simply need to survive in order to further the schemes of Nicol Bolas.

    Players will elect leaders for each of the 5 colors, but only players whose guild’s color pair contains the color may be voted for. Each color leader has a special power they can use to further their goals, so players must be careful when voting, lest Nicol Bolas’ influence grow. Once all the color leaders have been elected, a vote is held to eliminate 1 player. Once the dust has settled, players will reveal their roles, and if the Agents of Bolas were eliminated, the Gatewatch wins!

    A social deduction game for 5-10 players, Ravnica: Inquisition is great for both fans of party games and fans of Magic: The Gathering!

    Components:
    • Rulebook
    • 10 Role Cards
    • 10 Guild Cards
    • 5 Color Leader Cards
    • 5 Targeting Cards
    • Ablaze Marker
    • Ultimate Price Marker
    • Notepad
    • Pencil

    Just got my Fat Pack booklet. I was kind of surprised that the info repeated a lot compared to this, and also that the booklet basically does not address the leadership changes in Gruul and Azorius, just hinting on them (Domri *is going* to challenge Borborygmos, Dovin just *works his way up* in the Senate). Only Kaya dispatching the Obzedat is mentioned, but after that she "just awaits further instructions", no mention of her actually becoming the leader and starting freeing indentured ghosts.

    Yeah, noticed it (and saved it).


    Offtopic: I got my copy a couple of days ago, the premium edition. I was pleasantly surprised by the painted miniatures. Whereas they do not look *really* as good as the 3D renders presented on the site, they are miles better than the figures from Arena of the Planeswalkers.

    Because Rakdos himself can 1v9 the other guild leaders, specially now that Niv and the Obzedat are gone.


    I also got from the Rakdos story that they are trying to pull the Rakdos away from the all murder all the time thing. I mean, the feature was a Demon doing bad poetry and stand up, so its like they are moving back into their original role as described by Flisch, just without the mining and smelting.


    And even then the art book and planeswalker guide all also mention thats still the main purpose of the guild. Its not gone its just hasn't been in focus in any of the Ravnica sets.


    Frankly, the Rakdos in original RAV weren't either entertainers or miners. All their cards just depicted the "bloodthirsty crazy ruffians and mercenaries" aspect of the guild. See Slaughterhouse Bouncer. Jagged Poppet. Anthem of Rakdos.

    RTR had some circus-related cards, like Rakdos Ringleader, or Gore-Hoouse Chainwalker, but still much of the "crazy murderous thug" cards, like Splatter Thug, Hellhole Flailer, Cackler, Grim Roustabout, Thrill-Kill Assassin.

    So what actually happened (on cards) was establishment of the entertainment topic in RtR and fully expanding it in RNA. The mining and hard menial work were never there.


    The books mentioned Rakdos clubs and resteraunts, and that Rix Maadi (and the surrounding Rakdos territory in Ravnica City's undercity) was as much of a mine and foundry as it was a base of operations.


    Agreed, but note that I am talking about cards, not novels.
