Nov 11, 2021Posted in: Magic StorylineQuote from 5colors »So Olivias true plot was to marry Edgar, get an artifact of moon silver and use both in a ritual with Sigarda to take control of the angels of Innistrad. I did get worried (even knowing Sigarda was gonna be ok) since I had forgotten the original vampires had been born from drinking the blood of an angel.
We also learn (I believe) that Sorin was unwillingly turned into a vampire.
I delight that in the end Olivia is getting Comeuppance for Midnight Hunt. She could have gotten something else but by insisting on taking the key and bringing eternal night it let Katlindas ghost right and free Sigarda, with Sorin giving them the moment they needed by attacking Olivia. Nice way to have all three forces who hate Olivia have a hand in taking her down.
Regarding Katilda, I loved the exchange:
"Who invited YOU here?"
- referencing Olivia's Midnight Ambush

At the beginning of your upkeep, you may mill two cards. (You may put the top two cards of your library into your graveyard.)
Whenever one or more creature cards are put into your graveyard from anywhere during your turn, create a 1/1 green Insect creature token. This ability triggers only once each turn.
Cobbled Lancer U
Creature - Zombie Horse
As an additional cost to cast this spell, exile a creature card from your graveyard.
3U, Exile Cobbled Lancer from your graveyard: Draw a card.

Well, an interesting take on the "headless horseman" trope...

Waildrifter is just a gryff geist - all the geists have luminous "heads" with capes, but that works for the humanoid ones, not for a heron-headed bird-horse.
But yes, it is deliberately copying the Wretched Gryff illustration. But is is just a cool reference, not a confirmation of Eldrazi-stuff.
Nov 2, 2021And now we know who the "character returning, but as a vampire now" is...Posted in: Magic Storyline

Well, all the Stromkirk cards are either B or RB, but if anyone should have U in his cost, either Dimir of Grixis, it is him.

Oct 29, 2021Finally, we are getting the famous progenitor of the Stromkirk bloodline. A high priest of pre-Avacynian gods of sea and storms, complete with his staff with the emblem of the three-fishhooks sea cult we have seen so much in Shadows over Innistrad.Posted in: Speculation
We have seen Lier, Disciple of the Drowned, in Hunt. What do you think that the priest-turned-vampire's abilities would be? I would bet on anything with graveyard, spell recursion. etc.
Oct 29, 2021Runo Stromkirk more or less confirmed - Runo Stromkirk sleeves are mentioned by Arena, the guy is on the "families" picture, and it is pretty much him, with a staff of the "three fish hooks" cult.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Oct 29, 2021Seems we are finally getting Runo Stromkirk. Also, there is new card for Anje Falkenrath and a progenitor of a new, Maurer, bloodline (who is, as I collected a character from the Plane Shift DnD/Magic crossovers.Posted in: Magic Storyline
Oct 28, 2021Some more visuals.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
As for the vampire representatives, the Falkenrath is clearly Anje, an the Stromkirk simply HAS to be Runo.

Jun 17, 2019For me, as a veteran, it is, and always was, about the community, not the name. I'll go where the people I like to talk to, and the staff that did such amazing work, are going.Posted in: Articles
If the staff moves to Nexus, I'll follow, like I went from News to Sally 14 years ago.
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
