Okay, I phrased that poorly. If Chandra shows up, I don't think she would necessarily play a role in Elspeth escaping the Underworld. Theros Beyond Death will most certainly be about Elspeth escaping the Underworld and having the Gatewatch facilitate her escape would probably undermine making Elspeth the focus of the set. That said, Chandra does have a reason to go to Theros if the novel is anything to go by. Ajani, less so, but I'm still hung up on the comic highlighting Chandra and Ajani's relationship (plus if Chandra doesn't know how to get to Theros, Ajani could be her guide).

An idea of how the story could go


I don't actually think this is the direction the story will go as it's a Chandra-centric story instead of an Elspeth one (and the aforementioned Gatewatch fatigue), but I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility. However, if Chandra doesn't go to Theros in this set or the Forsaken novel, then the armor remark feels like a throwaway line constructed as a plot hook. Which, admittedly, given the source material seems likely.

Well, we can directly track Chandra because of the comic.
But there again, something else that I find mildly amusing:

That armor isn't even from Theros. It's from Alara.
Hell, everything being what it is, his armor is substantially more advanced than what Theros can produce.

Isn't Theros just beginning it's iron age? I thought there was some flavour about iron being a recent development, maybe only known to worshipers of Purphoros?
My secret hope for the story is that Elspeth remains dead but contributes something to Phyrexia's eventual defeat. She could give them the Godsend or enable an alliance or somesuch.

Ajani doesn't have much reason to go back to Theros does he? As far as he knows Elspeth is dead and he doesn't like the gods at all.

I just realized that black in Theros and Eldraine represent opposite aspects of the colour- The court of Lochthwain venerates persistence, whereas the followers of Erebos preach morbid acceptance.
I don't see anything coming of this, but it tickled my fancy.

I guess it shows how Creative has moved in showing 's less negative traits: from just elemental neutral aspects to actually talking about its philosophy.

We only knew that the gods were not eternal, that they are created and shaped by mortal myth. It doesn't preclude previous gods that were mortal but Kruphix did not mention that here:

Quote:
He did not, said Kruphix. People saw the chaos. They saw the destruction. They saw, in short, a usurper into a domain that had otherwise remained, by all appearances, indefinitely stable. Perhaps, if he had lived to take his place among the pantheon, people might remember that there had not always been a god of revelry, and come to wonder what that meant about the other gods.

Kruphix shrugged again.

I suspect, however, that they would have learned to worship him, and forgotten his mortal origins. They would have come to believe that he had always been there, waiting for their veneration. That is the way of things. In the end, he threatened nothing.

Titans on Theros.

I really do hope we get more substantial stories than the extremely vague card descriptors in "story through the cards".

Post subject:  Re: Theros: Beyond Death

Supposedly we are slated to get a few more descriptive blurbs as spoiler season turns from random cards to those more related to the story.

I kinda hate how most gods are still complete ****, especially the new one. (With possible exceptions of Ephara, Karametra, and Kruphix, who seem not to be in the story at all.)

Also, how exactly are Erebos and Tymaret with his Returned in kahoots? Wouln't they hate each other?
