    I know I am nitpicking, but in Planeswalker's Guide was that Cosima was originally a Cosmos Monster. She don't look like one, unless the Elixir has transformed her...


    Yeah, thought the same thing when seeing the card.

    I wonder if we'll get to see Cosima.


    What possibly makes you think we won't?
    I heard somewhere we won't see them all? Although all colors seem to have two, with Green and Black getting three. Wonder how Kiora would feel about this god, and how she'll be distinct from Thassa, who will always be my fave. <3


    Happy now? Smile

    So, Reidane was just previewed, and Birgi's picture was in the story of Niko - Jason Rainville shared that on Twitter, her other side is a horn (probably artifact).

    I really do not think that only Cosima will be missing, just to spite Jenrik Wink

    Yeah. Where exactly did you hear it?

    Frankly, there are three gods that do not have cards yet. Birgi, who was in a story. Reidane, who is confirmed to have a miniature. And Cosima.

    Well this is a bit more telling.

    Kaya and Tyvar Kell apparently team up and defeat Tibalt.
    Another thing worth noting is that the whole tree top is shaped as Vorinclex's bony faceplate. Where the sword is placed. And if anything can be gleaned from the functionality of the card, I'd not exactly tend to put my money to the ol' Voice of Hunger making it to the next installment ;))

    So....Kaya and Tyvar Kell defeat Tibalt and fight Vorinclex? Note that the top of the tree, where the sword is, is quite clearly Vorinclex's faceplate.

    EDIT: And based on the functionality of the card, they probably kill or defeat Vorinclex as well.

    It is indeed .the moment described in the first story published. As pointed out, she has knives, not the axes.

    Really disgusted how the thread in RM turned into yet another fest of bashing Kaya and the writers.

    Oh soo it is Vorinflex the established character Kaya is going to kill this time !

    oh, i was worried they would skip the "making fans like the character" part. Oh WotC, i have to trust you more Rolleyes


    As someone said, this looks like the moment described in the first story (https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/episode-1-travelers-2021-01-07). As was pointed out, Kaya is indeed fighting with knives here, not the axes she is brandishing later.

    This thread is dipping its toe into a rehash of the Kaya bad threads and I feel like we've already explored all the design space in that area. Plus, this was already known:
    Based on the story last week, after this scene Vorinclex throws Kaya off, then he rips his entire arm off to use as a club. Kaya almost dies if it weren't for Alrund's intervention.


    It's almost like I complained about Planeswalkers being Mary Sues in lore that make pushovers out of Legends that should be more powerful, but aren't, because Planeswalkers.


    I think it's more akin to the complaints about how snow wasn't in Kaldheim and how the whole plane was ruined. I think it would be better to not jump the gun and complain about things we don't know are confirmed.


    Yeah, sometimes I wish people actually read and think before falling into their self-ignited pointless tirades.

    Interesting that not all of Kaldheim is snow-covered, after how the plane was presented.

    On the other hand, the Vikings also did not have snow all year long, and we do not exactly need a re-do of Ice Age.

    ... your "it is bad because I do not like it" attitude.


    I was going to say something to this effect, glad you beat me to it. Grin


    It is okay, I had to suffer this person in Storyline for years now. I do not post anymore much, but such outrageous posts make me to break the surface.

    Quote from FlossedBeaver »
    I'm not sure the usual suspects declaring yet another set to be 'garbage' qualifies as a preview season speaking to anything, apart from maybe some confirmation bias. As far as market research, do you have links to show how well BFZ has sold or not sold?


    He has néthing. Making things up, as usual.

    I only wait when he starts to use the favorite new toy of many current social media discussers "I do not have to prove what I say, you have to prove that what I say is not true"...

    Neat arts, hopefully they deliver good cards and intesting mechanics again in this set.

    Again we were mistaken in the past but the set box art screams snow lands return.


    I can't imagine how disappointed everybody would be if they don't have snow mechanics in a Viking themed set. Would be a massive flavour failure for sure, but it does look like snow is coming Smile


    Like Zendikar without Eldrazi. Yep I went there. Wink


    Why so much hate for the first 2 Zendikar sets?
    Because neither of them managed to have the right focus, and almost entirely in service of limited and draft.

    BFZ - focus was Allies or Eldrazi, emphasis on the latter, and not the plane.

    ZNR - focus on weak limited tribal aspects and not the plane.

    Players have repeatedly requested a Land, Landfall and Adventure World (Quests, Traps, Expeditions, etc.) set and we always end up with weak tribal trash instead. I can't believe how many times since the original WOTC got Zendikar wrong. We return a third time and STILL no Adventure World tropes?


    Newsflash for you, Jenrik... modern sets are all designed for entertaining Limited play primarily.

    And having the party and exploration theme in ZNR, and saying "STILL no Adventure World tropes" makes you look silly.

    I can't believe that in all these years you are active here, you still did not grow up from your "it is bad because I do not like it" attitude.

    I wrote to Will McDermott himself and he answered Smile

    Quote from Will McDermott »

    "Now, as to Hans. He is a young barbarian at the time of the story. Too young for hunting parties, so he and his sister, Saffi are guarding the gate to the village when the Lhurgoyf attacks. Saffi loses her life in the story, but Hans survives to rush into town and warn the warriors gathered at the mead hall. When the Lhurgoyf attacks the hall, it devours several warriors during the attack, but Hans survives, for he has run to the back of the hall. The Lhurgoyf was after someone else and when it no longer smells its quarry in the hall, it leaves to pick up the scent again. The story moves away from the barbarian village at that point and we no longer see Hans in the story."

    Something bugs me here.

    The wiki entry on Hans says he was killed alongside Saffi. Does anyone have a copy of Monsters of Magic to check the whole story?
