    I wanted to make a clue deck and I already want Tamiyo in it so that promo is tempting.

    Well this is good news:

    https://markrosewater.tumblr.com/post/616506707182600192/ifwhen-more-davriel-big-when-i-expect-more

    I totally expect him to be in the 2022 Core Set, or perhaps a suppimental, non-standard set. I do not however expect him to be in any non-core, standard legal sets anytime soon as everythig coming out has been in the works for quite some time. He barely made it in WAR and that was only because they needed a new Mono B planeswalker with a discard theme, which Dav happened to fit perfectly.


    When we learned more about behind the scene for the Bolas arc they said Dovin and Kaya had been created for the Ravnica 3/War of the Spark storyline and had been put into Kaladesh and Conspiracy Take the Crown to introduce them some before hand and I wondering if they did something similar with some of the other planeswalkers such as Dav, Yanggu, Vivien and Angrath for War of the Spark and future stories. Maro said Kasmina is a character pulled from a future storyline they decided to give a tease for. Sanderson said originally Dav was also a future character that was being in the process of being in a currently drafted story (wanna say they needed a mono-black character and rest was up to Sanderson) which might have been War of the Spark but might also been little intro set for a bigger story line*.

    *like main set big not necessarily being big story arc.

    Imagine having the brain worms to still think Weisman did anything besides accepting the job to write two novels.

    And just as we celebrate as vaguely more decent Vivien in the book in story on cards she wishes for the entirety of sky sail to be popped.

    *pillow in face*


    And in the walker guide she talks about she likes sky sail for their methods of avoiding monsters.

    There has always been difference between cards/world building/story but this set really feels disconnected, not sure its people not working in the office or what but the different heads of the hydras aren't talking as they should be.

    Two minor lore stuff from the story on cards I figured I found cool;

    -Narset came to Ikoria to help her recover from War of the Spark since the mana on Ikoira is similar to ancient Tarkir

    -The Wanderer came to Ikoria for a second then planes walked away. I hope this turns into a running gag.

    Guys, girls and others... is the entity of the Ozolith self compiacent? Does it speak in convoluted way? Its motivations are unclear? It is a he?

    It's obviously none other than Nicol Bolas himself! Change my mind! Rofl


    The fact that Vivien says she is still trying to track down the walker and she believe Bolas is dead. Like in theory it could be Bolas and that was my first thought along Oko.

    I love that this card is not combat focused, which is rare for RW commanders, but still helps combat-based decks indirectly through helping to ramp through equip costs faster, reduces the costs of repeatable token generators like Mobilization/Dawn of Hope, makes Needle Spires and Rogue's Passage very inexpensive to activate, speeds up Burnished Hart/Wayfarer's Bauble, etc. Plus, many mechanics are activated abilities, Cycling most notably.


    Well Zirda encourages combat with the no blocking ability, It reminds me of Feather, where you can justify the ability for a combat build but its open ended enough to build something different you want too.


    Ehhhh, the ability doesn't get in the way of combat and can sometimes be incidentally helpful, but I don't think it actively encourages combat, but your point definitely stands that Zirda can support a wide variety of deck types.


    Oh not saying this your combat focused creature/commander/companion, just that cares just enough to keep it feeling Boros.

    I supposed that's true, her OCD/ADHD could be caused by repressed red tendencies.


    Well I'd say other way around, she is impulsive and follows her emotions but its tempered by control and for a search for knowledge and thats her red side.

    The ODC/ADHD I believes comes from her being on the autism spectrum.

    And the only reason that anyone even has a foot to stand on in claiming that Vivien's actions werent utterly evil is because WotC deliberately put her up against the most blatantly, mustache-twirlingly evil caricature of civilization short of the Phyrexians in order to make it seem palatable.


    I mean the Ixalan vampires aren't much off from the Conquistadors and other civilizations where doing at the time.

    Cursed MTG idea: since as far as we know only humans are excluded from Ikoria's mutations non-human planeswalkers like Ajani, Nissa and Kiora would turn into deviantart fetishes there.


    "Officer? Yes thats them right there"

    Does make me wonder why Humans are immune to the crystals when other living life can be mutated by it and how it would effect non-human off plane. Like I could see Nissa being fine but Ajani is a literal cat like the monsters* so would he start mutating around them?
