    By the way, has anyone noticed this little nod to us hardcore Vorthoses (and an acknowledgment of the original books)?



    Migellic was Kos's colleague in Ravnica book, and, for some time, de facto leader of the Wojek after the Decamillenial. Bell was the first name of Bell Borca, Kos's rookie partner in the same book, whose murder set Kos to the path that ended with all the events in the same book.

    user: I disagree. This art is quite different, yes, but all other arts except her original one depict her with her walking cane and other stuff. If she were gesturing in this art with her cane instead of her hand, I would fully accept the art.



    Do these 4 faces looks to belong to the same women to you? Not even the haircuts are remotely similar one each other. And about the last one is not the cane the only problem. She actually looks asian, this could be more Narset than Teysa.

    Well, the first and second picture is supposed to be cca 50 years apart.

    Her first depiction on card was basically Wednesday Addams, though she was over 50 at that time, looking young thanks to Orzhov magic. I would say that the overall best representation of the character, as portrayed originally in the Guildpact and Dissension books, was the second one, Envoy of Ghosts. She is also supposed to be over 110 years old.

    The RNA art also depicts a mature woman, a schemer, who knows what she wants. It is kind of Marchesa-like, that is fully fitting.

    The kit art is tragic, though. Both in depiction and in the overall flavor.

    Some really nice choices for face cards. Not a fan of the Teysa art though. I love her outfit, but her pose and facial expression just scream 'generic spellcaster looking determined.' The original art, whether you like the Orzhov boob window or not, at least communicated that she was primarily a schemer, and that her power lay in her words, not her magic.



    Excellently put, mister. I'd wanted to say something along this lines, but I was tired as hell and writing from a phone yesterday...

    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.

    I really do not get the name. Namely, the singular of "spark". Italian, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese use also singular but:

    French name is La Guerre des Planeswalkers
    German name is Krieg der Funken (War of the SparkS)...

    I despise the Domri art. He looks like a fifth grader who got a crazy haircut and tantrums for attention.

    You'd figure the GRUUL planeswalker's would be an ass kicking machine not this crap.

    Boo.



    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.

    Quote from Caranthir »

    Ruf zu den Waffen[/b] 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.

    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.

    So 233 does not fit the number crunch as Vintage of the Gatewatch given it’s between Gate Colssus and Gruul Locket. Could the card be called Gatewatch’s Vintage or Something similar?

    Guildpact, not Gatewatch. And yes, the name is a placeholder.
