    How many sets will be for this new plane? Just one like for Dominaria (still can't belive we only got one) or two?


    I'm sure the only plane that will get more than one set under this new system will be Ravnica because they can't do their usual guild thing and fit everything in one set.

    "...world filled with knights and castles..." Fortifications maybe?


    Every castle could use a good Moat... (yes, I know).

    The end of paper Magic tournaments is nigh. All the "pro" events and qualifiers will be through Arena starting in 2020. Profit margins are higher, and there's no need for judges or TOs, or to scrounge enough physical product on hand to supply players and have prize support.

    I would also not be surprised if the announcement stated that "Throne of Eldraine" will be the last paper Magic product.


    If they want to kill the game, sure.

    The pro circuit is ill-defined currently, and moving to online only, when a mobile version of Arena doesn't even seem to be on the docket, would be a stupid move.

    Does anyone else think that Eldraine is an elf? The name is very similar to Eldamari, and we’re seen Magic use similar names for other characters, Minotaurs Tangarth and Angarth, vampires(Kazarov and Markov, and then all these vampire names end in “a”: Vona, Olivia, Lucia, Jeleva, Garza, Etrata, Elenda, Drana), and Goblins Grenzo and Krenko.


    If we're going by names, Eldraine is very similar to Eldrazi too.

    I imagine it's the name of a continent. Or the plane itself, if it's not Vryn. Kasmina being the planeswalker would've been my second guess, but it doesn't quite jibe with the whole "trying to do this for ten years" thing.

    Blogatog confirms it's a planeswalker's home plane. And we know it's something Mark's been trying to do for ten years. So...Vryn?

    Iona is powerful, but is it possible what pushed it over the edge is that they wanted to unban Painter's Servant more? Having the two of those legal in the format at the same time would be pretty devastating.

    Death to Iona.
    Free Painter.
    Ban Cryo.


    What's Cryo? Can't figure that one out - it'll probably turn out to be something obvious.

    I imagine the fall set will wrap up the hunt for Dovin Baan (the only fugitive that doesn't really have plot-baggage) and then on to New Phyrexia in some capacity.

    Don't they have polls after every major product release? Or is it just booster sets?

    my bet:
    nordic/viking theme, with snow theme (lands as non full art), gods and a white villain


    If it is a nordic/viking theme, it won't have snow lands. Rosewater pretty much nixed that recently in his blog. He said snow lands are more likely to show up again in a supplemental set than a standard set.


    More likely in supplemental =/= as not going to appear in a standard legal set.

    He said the same about Madness, and then Shadows over Innistrad happened. Anything that isn't an 11 on the Storm Scale can technically appear. And that means pretty much everything but Bands with other and substance can technically appear in a future standard legal set, it's just more or less likely.


    I don't know how cagey he gets with potential spoilers, but I'm just guessing that if snow lands were going to appear in the very next Standard set, he might not have said it quite like he did. We'll see.

    I'd heard that the new issue is that some of them arrived torn or bent.

    Precognition Field for artifacts/colorless. Neat.

    It also looks like, judging by the example on the card, phyrexian Mana costs would also be different.
