    A bear with a Ankylosaurus body and ox horns and ears was not what I expected from one of the kaijus who knows what the others will look like

    Yea that’s got to Vivian with the bow this must be her new home plane after bolas destroyed her previous one

    And minor detail the minor green creature just behind this kaiju it’s running like a dinosaur plus the green bird resembles a Archaeopteryx

    So I say dinosaurs will be a theme on it

    Yea

    I can definatly tell you the remaining 3 colors not used in commander ever since the no more color patters s are temur and abzan so those will definatly happen

    I can put this on to board but if there’s enough of whatever the kaiju type is in all colors I can predict a five color deck

    But I think temur will be kaiju tribal



    I personally believe Ikoria will be a mix of Ixalan with Tarkir or Alara, just replacing the dinos with behemoths


    Yes but I can tell you dragons and dino types will happen

    It’s literally the set symbol alone that tells me it’s kaiju based because of how many times in Godzilla you see a eye zoom in like that


    Behemoth is a beast mentioned in Job 40:15–24. Suggested identities range from a mythological creature to an elephant, hippopotamus, rhinoceros, or buffalo.[1] Metaphorically, the name has come to be used for any extremely large or powerful entity. Both are of Babylonian origin, where they are creatures of the primal Chaos, Behemoth of the Earth and male, Leviathan of the Ocean Deep and female.


    When they said we would be able to make our own monster I thought about Meld right away, but it's wizards they will make some new mechanic, something like augment most likely?




    All we know about the building involves something called “keyword counters” which are probably counters that gives a evergreen ability permanently to a creature (until leaves the field ofcoarse) without a aura/static ability on a permanent

    Erm I speculate Ikoria will have a wedge mythical legendary creature cycle, the strongest of the bunch will be the temur mythic and the weakest will be the abzan mythic
    I speculate there will be 3 planeswalkers in the set (seems to be the norm now) the Pw's will most likely be Kiora,a brand new pw (a bad guy/gal) and some pw that was introduced in the war of the spark
    I speculate the create your own monster thing will be basically meld, but with a lot more creatures to combine, and that mechanic will tie with the Commander 2020 decks, perhaps something like partner but when you get both of them in the battlefield they meld for no cost?
    I speculate the story will be something cliche like bad pw is enslaving kaiju dude and planing to destroy something but then ikoria and " some pw that was introduced in the war of the spark" will defeat him and he planeswalks away

    I also predict some of these boxes will be "ticked"

    My brother is gonna be pretty sad the opal got banned affinity was his first deck and it wasn’t even that deck that caused it to get banned it was urza decks

    But seriously oko ban in modern you guys will think I’m crazy but I didn’t see that coming at all

    Maybe now I can get Mycosynth

    And yea I highly anticipated they will give balistia and Heliod combo a chance before they shoot the ban gun

    Atleast it’s more positive than negative but as usual with you users here

    Set had fantastic cards but you still say “I hate this set”

  • posted a message on Ikoria speculation
    I hope someone can move this to the regular speculation and not baseless now that theros is done now

    Though minor out of subject I can now speculate a 2021 set will be a new phyrexia revisit since ashiok planeswalked to learn more about the phyrexians and also the forsaken lore confirm Teferi Ajani and karn will go there as well to initiate karns plane to end the phyrexians for good

    Anyway Recap on likely creature types to see since it’s almost locked that it’s a set that introduces kaiju’s to mtg

    Dinosaur (ofcoarse)
    Construct (robot monsters)
    Insect
    Lizard
    Octopus
    Gorilla (King Kong)
    Dragon
    Hydra
    Giant (based on theros amount of them)
    Bird
    Kraken
    Leviathen
    Spider
    Golem
    Horror (destoroyah)
    Mutant
    Plant (biollante and some Venus fly traps from a movie that get kaiju sized)
    Crocodile
    Elemental

    And ofcoarse beast

    Well, I hope they adress the Calix issue in time, because if the reason he can planeswalk is "it's his destiny" (aka "Klothys' magic did it"), then between this and Kaya's buddy-walking, this sets a dangerous precedent. Planeswalking was restricted for a reason and now we get two exceptions in short time for no reason at all. Why not simply say Calix is Klothys' demigod and he was actually a planeswalker who never sparked in life? Bam, problem solved, but no, we gotta dilute the _one_ hard rule in magic, because reasons. [/rant]

    Also Phenax was mortal once too, idk if they will expand on that but as Kruphix said maybe Phenax himself might have forgot this fact himself.

    To take it a step further, the way myths and Nyx influence each other on Theros, Phenax may have become a mortal prior to his ascension retroactively, which is really weird if you think about it, but it makes sense when considering how Theros works.

    It’s happening phyrexians are the next villian

    Ashiok could be the next yawgmoth

    I doubt Ashiok is going to be closely affiliated with Phyrexia. At best Ashiok might become some sort of satellite. Their two themes just clash. Ashiok is all about dreams and nightmares while phyrexia is the most material faction in all of magic. They have no spirits, no elementals, nothing that is incorporeal or anything, it's just very consistently metal and sinews. (Which is probably the main reason why they have such trouble grasping the idea of sparks.)


    There’s more too it to why we know we’re going back to new phyrexia

    In the forsaken lore Karn, Tenerife and Ajani are all going there for karns plan

    And it’s once again boosted chances because ashiok wants to learn about phyrexians what better than going to either new phyrexia or dominaria for information

    So we are going to new phyrexia with Elspeth and Ashiok it seems, it is going to be an exciting expansions, wonder when.


    It said ashiok planeswalked to learn about the phyrexians i didn’t said Elspeth went there as well (but she could go to face her fears)

    It’s not like they gonna make ashiok the new heir to yawgmoths throne are they?

    You guys are missing the biggest part


    Two things came of this. Ashiok's visions are more real than most, and in one of them, Elspeth seized Heliod's spear Khrusor. When the vision had passed, a twisted version of the spear remained, dripping with darkness and power. Secondly, Ashiok learned of the Phyrexians' existence and promptly planeswalked away to learn more of these true living nightmares.

    Broken. Not looking forward to this in commander. Frown


    Shroud nor protection doesn’t get hit

    But today it’s a little bit rarer than hexproof
