    These are also meant to replace the PW intro decks so seems about right power-level wise.


    It's not power-level the problem it's just incredibly boring. They could have tried making simic sea monster tribal or something new like that instead it's just bland ***** we have already seen.


    I was talking more to people saying they seemed to weakening the commander pre-con, when these aren't necessarily that.

    But lets be honest those slots will be most likely filled with more mary sues, whoever thought a wizard rabbit was more important than Gix really needs to reavaluate their life


    Ah another personal who likes using Mary Sue like they think they know what it means.

    Who said the original leaker was a retailer who got product early? I very much doubt that's true, especially since WotC isn't sending product directly to anyone anymore. It's all done through distributors now.

    If someone was actually sent legit product early, that's a lot more serious than someone leaking info.


    I was thinking the same thing. I don't know any stores that actually receive the product early. We have to pick up new releases a few days prior to Prerelease / release. We've never had to hold on to product for weeks and wait, that's the distributor's job.

    Also, our 'preview card'is an email during the spoilers. Nothing is ahead of time for us.


    Which also strongly points out to this being leaked even if they hadn't pushed back spoilers too.

    Dang those walkers make me kind of sad. I was hoping we’d find out that this was Wrenn and Six’s home plane.


    We just had Jace and Nahiri in BtZ so I don't think its very unlikely they will appear (in card form) on Kaldheim.

    Hmmm so Kaya might be on Kaldheim or at least showing up in a set soon. Wonder why no Nissa or other walkers.

    Awesome to know we got gods, so are id guess we have Reidane as mono-white (or white centered) and likely a mix of norse, magic the gather and pop culture ideas of Valkyries and Alrund seems Odin based and mono-blue (or blue centered).

    But will Scroll Rack even be in the regular set or is it just in collector's boosters as the full art version


    Any card that has a full art is in the set proper, its the 32 legends you can only get as etched foils in the set. Full art version don't appear in regular boosters tho, so only the full art is in the collector boosters but the card in its normal frame and art will be in the set as a regular reprint.

    I hope this means we will see Breeches and Amelia too.

    Nifty Malcom is here in which means this set goes as recent as Ixalan.

    So, was there an announcement for the delay of the Commander Legends spoilers? Sorry, if that was discussed in the earlier pages.


    Yes Spoilers start the 26th now.

    Of course Kasmina gets to be a cool villain wasted in that garbage train wreck truck that was WOTS. Hope she shows up in Bant colors since she's the ideal Bant villain.


    Idk I think even if WotS was handled better we'd not get too much shown on her. Maro talked about how they needed a blue walker characters (originally they wanted to have Yanggu and Yangling separate so she wasn't picked, thought I think it works better that she came along in the lore) and they thought it would be cool to preview a character in a future storyline similar to the Kenriths in Battlebond, so I don't think she would gotten a lot of focus.

    That said this explains the section she appeared in where she seemly knew Bolas plan and came in fighting. Likely she was also looking into recruiting walkers to her cabal.

    He talks about it in the post, they are trying stuff out but I think the published version of their world bible/planeswalker guide (which is what these have been) are ending. The upcoming stuff looks more like an intro/summarized (which I will still look into!) but again not the in-depth look at the worlds.

    I just wished we gotten one for Eldraine, at least Theros got the DnD book.

    Sad day, this is the last art of its kinda due the change of how they visit planes and James Wyatt focusing on DnD more.

    -Amazing art, this book really pulls across all of magic and really shows off a lot of the cool promo and alternate art.

    -Kinda cool they have the war of the spark walkers get little bios throughout the book as they met or interacted with Bolas or his schemes.

    -This art book is basically a mini-history and world guide to all the lore and worlds post weatherlight story.

    -Most of the stuff set up in Chronicles of Bolas is said to be “some stories say”, which echos comments of the author of the story being told by unreliable narrator and says the stuff set up

    -The art book mentions Bolas seems to have a soft spot for Dominaria as none of his modern plans (outside of Liliana) harmed the plane and hinting maybe it was gonna be Bolas seat of power once he got his old powers.

    -For those of saying they uncanonized the demon-leviathan it's brought up a few times and has the quotes future sight about the Talon Gate.

    -After killing the demon-leviathan Bolas would pop in and out of Madara since he liked the ley lines there.

    -After he killed Ugin, he decided to build his empire on Madara and killed the “god-emperor” an unnamed female warrior and took over.

    -Minor but they said the rift Karn made was the rift that leads to the events on Kamigawa.

    -Small quote :”The Umezama clan does not play a major part in Dominaria today, but Toshiro’s descendants flourish and thrive”.

    -The Consortium was set up to be Bolas eyes and ears across the planes due his lose of power weakening his ability to spy across the multiverse.

    -Bolas sent Tezzeret to Mirrodin to study the process of Phyrexia and to keep them from uniting under a single ruler. Seems like with the eldrazi, Bolas was thinking of using them to get a group of walkers to team up and mobilize, but found the eldrazi to be better for that goal.

    -Umm they mentioned Ramaz so he is cannon then.

    -So the gatewatch forming wasnt all to Bolas plan, he wanted a larger gathering of planeswalkers and slower fight then the gatewatch gave but he adjusted as needed. I’m guessing he was gonan try and launch the War of the Spark as more of a sneak attack after a larger group of walkers gathered and defended a common threat.

    -Bolas wasn’t involved in SoI but was interested in it and wasn’t too happy the gatewatch came out it seemed winning.

    -One thing to note is Bolas weakened the Hekma so that people wouldn’t depend on it and more on him. Which means post-Bolas Amonkhet might be able to protect themselves better.

    -Garruk gets a shout out.

    -They re-worked Ral being an “agent” of Bolas (from the design standpoint that all the guild leader walkers were on Bolas side) as him crafting the beacon.

    -The elder spell needs the sparks of the walker harvest to be done in a short time so Bolas had to lure hundreds of walkers at once.

    -As noted it seems like Kasmina might be a new villain as she collects and manipulates planeswalkers into her cabal.

    -Hmm hints Davriel met some of the walkers hunting after him on Ravnica.

    -Ashiok got a bit more defined as they now “A mysterious planeswalker apparently beyond species, biology, and gender”. Appearly Ashiok willing went to Ravnica due to senes the fear that a world ending war would bring.
