Quote from mob4metsIf you notice at the end of the video they fan out the 5 planeswalker cards. They show Gideon J. with his original art and the m12 symbol. the other 4 you can't quite tell if art is original or not
Quote from KarricYou should have used gatherer pictures since the coloration would have been more accurate. Printed cards differ in coloration a ton.
I really doubt all 5 of them will be reprints, making Jace and Chandra new cards would work well since they had a duel deck, whereas the other guys haven't. And it'll keep the set semi-fresh on the planeswalker part. Perhaps they'll explain it with a "we will reprint a walker only X number of times before a new version is mandatory."
Quote from Snow-FurA part of me was hoping we'd see him again in the SOM block rallying forces to fight against his former friend and ally, but I guess the little guy really did make the ultimate sacrifice after all...
A cheap little one or two drop Goblin PW with some self destructive tendencies would be pretty damn fun IMO.
Quote from Snow-FurIf anything, this looks like we'll be seeing familiar faces again.
Which is sort of a shame because there's a LOT of untapped potential still for walkers. Specifically non human ones. All of these different worlds and faces Wizards, and you're telling me that your main cast consists pretty much of nothing but people? Not a single Goblin, Vashino, or Nantuko or whatever has ascended and is rolling around or gotten mixed up in this confounding web of BS you call an overarching story?
Quote from Hollow VoicesUgh, you like that art? She's got Chun-Li Syndrome! lol
That art has been out for a month and a half or so I think. Jace also has new art released. Both are used on the new MTG Deckbuilder's Toolbox.
Quote from Nobody Likes Nicol BolasAlso on the M12 annoucement page:
Quote from Nobody Likes Nicol BolasI'd say Ms. Thunder Thighs matches the Red PW art pretty well.
Quote from Hollow VoicesI'm going to throw this out there real quick.
Different art does not mean completely new card.
Reprints get different art occasionally. So even if the art is different, we wont truly know if these are reprints or not until they are actually spoiled.
Quote from Hollow VoicesIf you guys look very, very closely, you'll see that the background art seems slightly different than the originals.
Only ones that look like the art is the same are Gideon (obviously) and Sorin.
The rest have different shades/positioning of colors.
Look very closely and you might see what I see.
In fact, the Chandra art resembles the new art from the Toolbox moreso than the old art... I hate that art so much...
I can't seem to find a full art pic of the new Jace art for comparison, so it's hard to say if the M12 Jace will have the new art or not. His art in the background does look slightly different from the original.
Quote from Raptor1210What I meant was they just spent an entire block's spoiler seasons trying to make us wonder whether the last set would be New Phyrexia or Mirrodin Pure, why would they just throw this at us out of the blue. They could easily have just photoshop'd the symbol onto a RoE Gideon. Besides I never said it wasn't official, just that all might not be what it seems like it is at first glance.
Quote from jland13Where'd you get that shot? I don't remember seeing that in the video. Looks like we're getting Beleren back after comparing JtMS and Beleren's cards edges. The one in the screenshot is clearly Beleren:
Quote from Typh00nWhy did you quote me?
Quote from hakujin1. Was the Angel he summoned Platinum Angel or was that just me?
2. I honestly don't think we will get updated versions of anything. Yes, Jace 1.0 seems small, but he also seems small in comparison to most other things anyway. The issue here is what the planeswalkers fill in the format of a core set and the base 5 (with the inclusion of Sorkin and Gideon) do a good job of rounding out the color pie. .
Quote from Jake1991Dang. I guess they're reprints. Looks like I'm ordering some Gideons soon.
Quote from Typh00nHere's hoping that Gideon will turn out to be some kind of Magic main good guy who keeps showing up every now and then. Kinda like what Bolas is for the dark side.
Quote from SolitoThe splash shows a Gideon with an Msomething as his Expansion. Doesn't it?
EDIT: After putting it in 720, it clearly is M12. And the Collectors number looks like 2xx
