While Alesha didn't bother me, I'm pretty sure I'd lose my **** if they dedicated a larger part of the narrative to someone just dealing with it for the sake of box checking.

^ I got a feeling Spike's version of The Mist is gonna do that.

I just wanted monsters and a look at the novel from the POV of the Project Arrowhead people.

If there's anything a dragon hates, it's a pyramid—especially Bolas's Pyramids, the symbol of his reign.

The technical skill in that fanart is "Somebody at wizards talk to this person about a possible commission" but that dragon does NOT match Bolas's Style Guide even though from context I would guess that it's supposed to be Bolas.

My wife's birthday is tomorrow, and mine is the day after! (funny how that worked out). Could we get some info on our favorite dead planeswalker, Venser?

The first version of a blue planeswalker was not Jace but Venser. It was decided to start with five characters no one knew to give us a blank slate.

Happy Birthday to you both!

Are you agreeing with Yxoque, or talking about a different kind of story? Just clarifying.

A bit of both.

Taysir would make a cool 5 colour Planeswalker. Pity he died stupidly.

I'm actually holding out for Commander with this one. They're probably going to shove in a four- or five-coloured Sarkhan somewhere just to mess with us, though. :bored:

In the lead up to the release of Dominaria, will Wizards be reposting some old content about the setting that is no longer publicly archived? Ie the flash comics from Apocalypse? That would be very keen.

I'd love the Stronghold minisite back of all things. It had a cool adventure game where you played as a Rathi rebel (can't remember if you were officially an il or en Kor, vec, or dal or even a member of the Weatherlight crew or just an AFGNCAAP opposing Volrath. Skyshroud Elf in the one scenario that plays its first page for web.archive.org and no further.) infiltrating the Stronghold, with your stated goal being to defeat the Furnace Spirit. Damn thing burned me to death so many times. I finally figured out how to survive its fire blasts but I never did get the sequence down to actually kill it. I remember enough to suspect I had to get through the Gardens to find whatever I needed though since there were... (Scene using the art from Hesitation)... problems attempting to cross and it could have just been a dummy area. I've always wondered if I could pull it off going back as an adult with better than rudimentary problem-solving skills and some experience with Sierra's bull that I didn't have back then.

EDIT: Scanned Web.archive.org and I don't think the game works but the whole thing was called "The Darkness Within" and the one with the Furnace Spirit was just one of four adventure games.

Also, the invasion minisite with the map game would be kind of cool since we could get a labeled 4205AR Dominaria map out of it.

I still can't tell what the Bolas bit is meant to be. Is it a statue of Bolas? If so, what's up with his claws? Or is it actual Bolas? And if so, what is he doing? Just sitting there popping out some fancy fireworks? Grinding his claws against the stone wall? And where is he, perspective-wise?

He's writing the record of his victory on the wall. It is assumed he drew each of the pictures of how he beat each Gatewatch member.
