Not much to go on at the moment other than a name (see above), a set code (WAR), and the knowledge that we are looking at something like an Avengers: Infinity War-like brawl on Ravnica between the Gatewatch and its allies against Bolas and his League of Tangential Pawns.

MaRo has this to say:

Quote:
earlnimbud asked:
Is there space for a set on Ravnica that didn't prominently feature the guilds? Or are they that inescapable from a lore perspective that there isn't that much space to create *without* them being involved? As a follow up, what are the chances of a Ravnica set that didn't follow the 5 guilds formula, similar to the asymmetric factions that Ixalan had?

markrosewater said:
An expansion set in Ravnica not about the guilds?

May I suggest you check out War of the Spark coming out this spring (Northern Hemisphere)/fall (Southern Hemisphere). :

Chandra and Ajani come through without notable physical harm, but it has apparently done a major number on Chandra's mental health.
Also of note, Chandra is living with her mother again.

Yeah I think it is a better assumption to think some walkers WILL die. At this point I think we should start making a dead pool lol

Easy money on Lili and Tezz dying IMO. Nissa probably dies if she shows up.

Lili still has the nebulous plot hooks of the Onakke and Raven Man hanging around, so I think she's safe.

My money is actually on Jace and possibly Gideon.

I will actually kiss the behind of a WOTC higher up if they kill Jace once and for all, because I am not seeing it.

They have groomed him into the RYU (Street Fighter) of the Neowalkers, with pros and cons of it and all.

My baby Gideon though? I've been praying for since Dominaria. :doh:

I'm not convinced we'll see a walker permanently die. I'd love to be surprised.

I think everyone referencing Gideon's death based on the trailer are forgetting something pretty big.
Gideon got stabbed real good by Nicol on Amonkhet. Pretty sure that and the Blackblade are what that hole are.

You know, I don't recognize all those PWs. I'm kind of interested to see the ones I don't know. For others, I'm hoping the bodies hit the floor. And for a couple, I'm kind of sad they're here because I'd like to see their stories continue.

Honestly, Jiangg is the one in there that surprises me most.
It's also surprising that there are some missing like Dack or even Tezzeret.

Yeah, I wasn't expecting him. I'm totally open to him as a new standard :g: Planeswalker, though: Garruk is in some kind of horrible limbo, Nissa needs to shut up forever, and Vivian didn't make a good impression to start out. Wonder if that means Hat Lady (fourth row, right hand side) is Mu Yanling? If she is it's a pretty huge redesign.

There really are some surprising exclusions in the thing, the more I think about it.
Kinda surprised to see Sorin there, considering how we last saw him.

I think one of them is Davriel Cane in there.

The two unidentified ones so far are the woman with the bird-shaped staff and the woman in the hat.

gophilipbowles asked:
There's a rule that planeswalkers can't planeswalk carrying other living organisms with them, but the new art shows Huatli with an Ixalan raptor, Sarkhan with (possibly non-Ravnican) dragons, and Jiang with his dog. Is this just artistic licence or will an upcoming lore change allow characters to planeswalk with animals?

markrosewater said:
Jiang is able to planeswalker with his dog. That’s part of his planeswalking ability. Huatli and Sarkhan are summoning creatures like you or I do in the game.


For any who may be wondering?

- I'm readying my popcorn on their explanations on a lot of the returning Neowalkers, specially Nahiri and Sorin.

- A bit sad that no Yangling, but not surprised since Kiora is there. I'm just happy that they're not excluded somehow in the overall lore of things. I hope she isn't the hat lady tho. Not another Urza Blind Seer shenanibangbang again...

- LOL, No Dick Frackden. I CACKLED.

I don't think anyone's posted this here. Random House put up a blurb telling us more about the plot of War of the Spark: http://www.randomhousebooks.com/campaig ... der-offer/

Quote:
Experience the first official adventure in Magic: The Gathering’s multiverse in nearly a decade as the ultimate battle begins on Ravnica.

Teyo Verada wants nothing more than to be a shieldmage, wielding arcane energies to protect his people from his world’s vicious diamondstorms. When he’s buried alive in the aftermath of his first real tempest, the young mage’s life is about to end before it can truly begin—until it doesn’t. In a flash, a power he didn’t know he had whisks him away from his home, to a world of stone, glass, and wonder: Ravnica. Teyo is a Planeswalker, one of many to be called to the world-spanning city—all lured by Nicol Bolas, the Elder Dragon. Bolas lays siege to the city of Ravnica, hungry for the ultimate prize: godhood itself. His unparalleled magic and unstoppable army appear poised to bring the city to utter ruin.

Among those who stand in the way of Bolas’s terrifying machinations are the Gatewatch, Planeswalkers sworn to defeat evil, no matter where it’s found. But as they work to unite the other mages and mount a defense of the city and its people, the terrifying truth of Bolas’s plan becomes clear. The Elder Dragon has prepared a trap to ensnare the most powerful mages from across the Multiverse—and it’s too late to escape.

As forces great and small converge on the city and the battle rages, the stakes could not be higher. If the Gatewatch falters and the Planeswalkers fail, the curtain will fall on the age of heroes—and rise on the infinite reign of Nicol Bolas.


tl;dr
  • "Geometry Mage" from the cover is a shieldmage named Teyo Verada
  • Bolas is pulling planeswalkers onto Ravnica somehow
  • It sounds like Bolas's goal is to trap a bunch of planeswalkers on Ravnica and kill them or steal their power or something

There's quite a few companies right now having a "year of the villian." Maybe we can see that too. Ha.
