Quote from theMarc »PSA to everyone who keeps forgetting about the Reserved List:
You're on a website dedicated to talking about MtG. You're only a few keystrokes away from finding out what cards are on the Reserved List. You're also only a few keystrokes away from finding out why some cards on the Reserved List got foil printings in FtV, as Judge promos, or whatnot, as well as why that won't happen again. Stop doing this.
Quote from soramaro »In my dreams, this year's product will be plane themed and will feature legends from minor/lesser known/obscure/old planes like Lorwyn, Kamigawa, Mercadia, Segovia or Ulgrotha.
It's not going to happen though.
Quote from void_nothing »I'm 95% certain it won't be tribal again, just to get that out of the way; announcing a change from color based to theme based to keep things fresh and interesting and then repeating a theme after two years is not a good look. 'sides, there are so many, many more types of decks that could be done - it's not a small well of design space because the themes could clearly be as tight (mechanical) or as amorphous (purely flavor) as is needed.
Quote from Manite »I've suggested a Plane theme myself before, and I've determined that the biggest obstacle for a plane theme this year is the fact three of the most popular planes - Mirrodin, Zendikar, and Theros - center around or heavily feature themes that were just done last year: Artifacts, Land, and Enchantments. Now Ravnica and Innistrad are also highly popular, the two most popular in fact, and their most probable themes - Multicolor and Graveyard - are available for this year. Ravnica can be either WUBRG (most likely using a "one and all" Jace since he's the Guildpact) or WU (with Azor as the probable face card, since he helped found the Guildpact). Innistrad would obviously be WB with Sorin as the commander, and the Fourth Sister as a very likely second.
The question then is what third plane gets featured? And the reason I only say third and not also fourth is because they now have a rule that one of the four decks each year has to be off-theme because apparently some players didn't like C17 being all tribal decks (boo!). Thus C18's Esper deck was themed after Topdeck rather than card types. Tarkir to me seems the next most likely due to the popularity of Dragons and Wedges. Sarkhan could easily helm a GUR Tarkir deck themed around Dragons with smatterings of Morph and various Tarkir mechanics in the mix, leaning Temur and Atarka but also allowing the other Clans and Broods some representation.

Quote from Manite »I'd be all for a WUBRG Dominaria/Weatherlight/Coalition deck helmed by Gerrard. Ideally, he'd be a RW legend with a WUBRG ability.

I feel like this suggestion would be very "on theme" with how they have been visualizing Commander product design space lately. Heck, I have considered making a jank deck of some sort to fill this particular concept (sadly with a random 5 color commander).
Quote from AUTUMNTWILIGHT »If its planes what Planes? Dominaria, Ravnica and Innistrad for sure. What is the last pick? Zendikar?
