This isn't a new episode; this is the deleted scenes

The alternate endings of the story; if one of the other factions managed to win

I don't really like how they changed Tishana. It's like they made her into Kumena. I DID like how Vona got her death,being eaten. Lol the Coalition

Sulk: Yeah, the ending for the River Heralds was not what I signed up for. Oh well.

Merfolk: See above. Me no likely.

Vampires: Take THAT, Vona! Oooh, how I'd love for this to be canon. Vona deserves to die for being such a (profane word here).

Pirates: Lol

I actually thought that the Merfolk ending was the most satisfying

Couldn't Vona's death actually fit into any of the other endings?

As someone who wanted the Vampires to win, I'm disappointed that there wouldn't have even been a victory for them. Lame.

Feel like Vona could have died in that way anyway.

I can't wait for a return to Ixalan for another iteration of Elenda. I like her.

Even though the River Heralds unexpectedly take Orazca for themselves, I still feel that is the one ending in which any kind of a lasting peace may still be an outcome. If the Heralds showed a bit of resistance to the Sun Empire's aggression and sued for peace I think it would be possible.

I looove Elenda's character. I want to see a lot more of her in Return to Ixalan.

And, to anyone who didn't vote pirates: Shame on you. I want you to look Breeches right in the eye, and tell him he can't have his "GOLD AND CARDS AND ALE."

I was very disappointed that the Legion of Dusk ending ended with Vona being eaten, as that did not feel like much of a victory, but I did like the other endings.

I would like to see a return to Ixalan, eventually, but it is not a necessity, and I will be perfectly content if this is the end of the story of Ixalan.

I mean if you look at it a certain way vona's death is a victory for the vampires. As it stands if we return to Ixalan the Legion of Dusk will likely be plunged into a civil war of the religious traditionalists following Saint Elenda, and Maverin Fain. While those who wish for power and to conquer will follow Vona to attempt to conquer the other nations.

So if Vona dies in Orazca the warmongers won't have a figurehead who can lead them successfully and the vampires will be in peace.

also GOLD AND CARDS AND ALE!!!! (best possible ending.)

@RazortoothMtg hahaha

I thought the pirates ending was the most fun. They sure know how to party! Plus I played pirates at all four of the prerelease events I attended so I do have a soft spot for them.

Tishana seems a little too off color from her previous stories. She got drunk with power I guess.

With Vona, the way they described the dinosaur that ate her, I imaged Etali, Primal Storm as the killer. Leaving her alive tho will certainly add depth to a return story (on Torrezon).

imo it makes the most sense that the empire takes over the city. They seem to have the largest army and most motivated leader of the bunch.

Ya, if the pirate ending did happen, I'm pretty sure about a week into it Emperor Apatzec would have shown up with a bunch of dinos and kicked them out anyway. :(

I really hope Ixalan 2 is based on Torrezon, and the vampires. And of course some pirates randomly raiding them.

You know what I kinda was disappointed with for all the stories? There really wasnt much mention of any of the elder Dinos besides Zacalma. Like the vamp ending hinted at Etali eating Vona but thats like it.

@dbpunk I can't help but agree. They did mention Zetalpa, Primal Dawn in one of the stories; but all it did was get up and fly away haha
