Quote from ShadowFenrilOh god, please, PLEASE be better than Venser vs Koth.
I wonder who this Elvish Lich Lord guy is...
Quote from unfamiliarAlt-art Niv-Mizzet? My money is yours.
Quote from Target PlayerCertainly interesting. Does this mean the guilds are returning? I thought they were disbanded.
Quote from adlorinI really hope that these decks will boast their leaders as planeswalkers and not just legendary creatures.
Quote from WacKy ZacKySo Jarad will become a card like Mikeaus was Pre Innistrad?
Quote from SintherosI hope so. He was my favorite character from the Ravnica story and would gladly make an EDH deck around him.
Quote from cryogen »I hope for a you ban.
Quote from Surging ChaosInteresting that they went with Izzet vs. Golgari instead of Izzet vs. Selesnya. The Izzet clearly hated the Selesnya Conclave, as evidence in cards like Seed Spark and Electrolyze (look who's getting fried).
Still though, I am excited for this like usual! Though that's easy to say given the previous clunker that was Koth vs. Venser.
Quote from SintherosNeither Niv-Mizzet nor Jarad are planeswalkers. One's an intelligent narcissistic dragon and the other is an elf who reanimated himself.
Quote from Black_MegatogActually, Niv-Mizzet may be a planeswalker. In the Ravnica block novels, the Izzet communicate with one another and with Niv-Mizzet through The Firemind, a system Niv-Mizzet devised to link the minds of the Izzet together with him. This allowed him to accumulate knowledge very quickly. However, in one of the books, after batting a nephilim around for a while, he became injured and took off, saying he was "bored." After that, the Izzet found it impossible to contact Niv-Mizzet through the firemind. It was as if he had left the plane. Thus, he may have activated his spark or, short of that, devised some method of interplanar travel.
Quote from BarinellosThere are known knowns and known unknowns, but there are also unknown unknowns. Things we don't know that we don't know.
Quote from WacKy ZacKyI'm kinda hoping they don't go in the OBVIOUS direction of putting too many Izzet Cards from Guildpact and too many Golgari cards from Ravnica.
