Will the Adventures of the Other Planeswalkers Be Told in Detail?
Posted on Feb. 8, 2018, 10:15 p.m. by DemonDragonJ
Jace said that he would be meeting with other planeswalkers on Dominaria, but I really hope that only Liliana is there, as that is her home plane, and because I wish for the adventures of the other four planeswalkers who fought Bolas (Liliana, Chandra, Gideon, and Nissa) to be told in detail, as it would be fascinating to see how they grow and develop as characters on their own, away from the each other. Also, it would be terribly unfair if only Jace's solo adventure was shown in detail.
What does everyone else say about this? Will the adventures of the other four planeswalkers be told in detail?
It would be cool if the Dominaria storyline begins with Liliana arriving there right after leaving Amonkhet. Maybe they could have her figure out who the raven man really is and help develop her enough to handle The Chain Veil.
Jace regaining his past and becoming a stronger mind mage plus Liliana controlling the veil would help for another showdown with bolas.

Magic: The Adventures Of Jace Beleran....
Liliana, pre-mending walker on a plane with other pre-mending walkers... gatewatch 2.O? It would be nice to explore the other walkers. It fits in with their New Plane/Old Plane plan. New: Ixalan (Jace/Vraska), Old: Dominaria (Liliana), New: Regatha (Chandra), Old: Theros (Gideon) New: Someplace to do with Bolas's plans (Nissa), Old: Re-return to Ravnica (Jace).
*Note/afterthought: Technically Chandra backstory has already been done in Kaladesh... so that point could be moot. Also regarding Dominaria and the other pre mending walkers, Who among them can still planeswalk, and will they become involved with bolas or have thier own planar struggle to contend with? And Yes, I strongly hope for The Raven Man's involvement in some way as well.
Just my 2 cents, nothing factual to back up these theories.

God, I hope not. Jace's thing was intersting, because the world he landed on was intersting and had Vraska. But I hope we do not see the rest for a good few sets. Lili and the raven man being an exception to that.

This is what I think is going to happen: after Dominaria, where we will see Liliana, the next set will be Return to Theros, in which Ajani will attempt to rescue Elspeth from the Underworld. Another option would be Return to Kamigawa, where we might see Chandra, Nissa or Gideon (continuing the 'solo Gatewatch-Planeswalker' theme from Jace and Liliana). After that, we will see another solo Planeswalker on a new plane (or maybe on Vryn, which many players have asked for in the past), and after that they could set up a new New Phyrexia set, based on Elspeth (finally a non-Gatewatch main Planeswalker). This is all absolute conjecture, but I think it might make sense. It is absolutely not tainted by my deep love of New Phyrexia as a storyline and a plane.

Agusdakilla, if there is to be a return to Theros, Gidoen will unquestionably be involved, as he has unfinished business, there.

My guess is that ravnica is what will happen after each individual walkers story is explored.
We know Liliana is from dominaria so Id put money on dominaria focusing on her as has been suggested, resulting in a power up to her similar to what Jace went through.
Chandras roots have been handled by Kaladesh, however she was trained by monks at the monastery on insert plane name I dont remember. Perhaps she walks there and is taught a level of self control which she has thus far lacked. Kind of a Prince Zuko being taught to control his fire by dragons-style story if you will.
Ajani and Gids will end up on theros, wherein kruphixs prophecy is fulfilled: Gideon dies, but Ajani finds a way to resurrect Elspeth, and either she or Ajani becomes the watchs mono white walker.
Finally we return to amonkhet where Nissa has remained, repairing the damaged soul of the plane and mastering both her connection to the land and her ability to manipulate leylines.
A brief one shot lore story features Jace gathering up the gatewatch who -aside from lili- are all absent from dominaria... or some other brief explanation of how the gatewatch is reassembled before going off to take on Bolas again, perhaps with the aide of new friends such as Elspeth, Karn, Ugin, etc.
Then we finally return to ravnica (with all of these sets occurring in the same time span, Bolas will only just have acquired the sun on ravnica), and the big showdown of jacestice league vs Bolas and his legion of doom occurs, with vraska flipping sides from legion to league at some critical moment in the fight.

User:DemonDragonJ that's true, but then it would make even more sense, since Gideon could planeswalk there and find Ajani in the middle of his quest/ some other sort of troublesome business.
DuTogira if I'm not mistaken the plane where Chandra went after her duel/eecution with Baral was Regatha.
For some reason I can't tag you.

The Raven Man is speculated to be a reincarnated Urza. He somehow survived being beheaded. There's also an interesting dynamic since Karn has Urza's spark, so if he did come back, he may not have any of his powers.
I could see a story line where Liliana uses her own abilities to help reignite Urza's spark, especially as we find out more regarding The Chain Veil, the curse on Liliana, as well as whatever happened to Garruk Relentless Flip.
I'm also hoping we see Teferi, Temporal Archmage, since Dominaria is also his home plane. AFAIK, however, he died in Khans block.

Teferi wasn't in the Khans block.
Teferi is alive and in the preliminary promotional art for the Dominaria set.

An interview revealed that Gideon and Liliana will be working together to defeat Belzenlok, the last of Liliana's demons, on Dominaria, and I shall presume that that happens before Jace meets Gideon on that plane.

sylvannos, you are correct that it was Sarkhan that went back in time to save Ugin. However there has been nothing to suggest that Teferi had anything to do with it. Sarkhan was just magically teleported when he found Ugin's skeleton, Ugin's Nexus.

@RicketyEng: Ah ok. For some reason I thought Teferi was involved like he was in Time Spiral block.
