Best case scenario: two out of the five guilds that will support Bolas are not aligned to but to and . Either Boros & Simic or Azorius & Gruul for maximum symmetry.

Dumbest case scenario: Nissa saves the day.

There was actually one other design choice they flubbed up before, but I can't recall it right now, but those damned wings have and always will piss me off.

I recalled it!
We never got any of the crystalline saprolings that were the HUGE visual motif of original Rav.
I want that back.


They moved all that stuff onto the larger elementals. Pretty sure that 8/8 token from the land has the crystals on it

Nope, it has portions of buildins in it, like wayfaring temple

Eh, the crystals always struck me as kind of generic. I guess it's weird that the guild apparently moved away from that. But Selesnya looks better for it.

We now know that the Dimir are in fact not working for Bolas while the Izzet are unsubtly worshipping him, so which guilds are with him and which aren't is all the more unpredictable.

Surprise twist, the Dimir save everyone this time around
... I'd honestly forgive a lot if they did that.

Boros Trailer

I don't think it's good as a recruitment tool.

Lazav (See: Volrath) is the hero we need.

So I see they are bringing the novel line back with this Ravnica set....

I imagine it will do much better than previously, especially since they are actually putting forth an effort to make people aware of the story.

But they also removed the "story spotlight 1/x" stuff from cards.

They removed the "1/X" part, but not the Story Spotlight, to obscure the exact sequence from becoming apparent too early.

About book one:

Quote:
“Planeswalkers from many disparate realities will team up with the Gatewatch against Nicol Bolas and his unstoppable army who has claimed dominion over Ravnica. The book will feature well known characters, like Chandra, Gideon and Jace, alongside all new characters.”

I'm glad Kaya is here to probably murder the Ghost Council. I'm curious what the weird geometry mage's deal is.

Kaya. Neat!
I'm on board.
Though I'd find it hilarious if they were all "think of the children!"
And she was all "sure... For money!"

Shiv every single one of 'em. And that's coming from someone who loves the Orzhov guild.

Predictions:

Pro-Bolas: Izzet, Azorius, Gruul (at least at first), Golgari, Boros.

Anti-Bolas: Dimir, Selesnya, Orzhov, Rakdos, Simic.

Both Golgari and Orzhov are undergoing civil wars so its likely that these are particularly complex situations.

I hope it's a more complicated situation that five guilds on each of two sides, personally.

Also want some Izzet to be anti-Bolas, but that's just me being selfish & still wanting to root for my favorite guild.
