Wow, has it really been an entire year since a user last posted in this thread?

We know that Gideon is currently on Dominaria, so, if he returns to Theros, it shall be sometime after his adventures on that plane, and possibly even after Bolas's impending invasion of Ravnica.

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.

epajula, why did Nintendo produce its previous mini consoles in such small quantities? It would more than make back any production costs from the sales of such items, so there does not seem to be any sensible business reason for such limited production runs.

RazortoothMtg, that does make sense, and I hope that WotC will eventually print a five-colored EDH deck with a theme other than tribal (although that may be difficult to do), as well as a colorless EDH deck.

RazortoothMtg, I am sorry that I need to ask this, but how does it make sense? The decks that had even color distribution had their own themes, so building decks around themes is not a new practice.

Thomasin4413, obviously, WotC wishes to save themselves money when printing the cards by having fewer decks in each product, but are we, the customers, still getting the same number of new cards with each Commander product? Are will still getting a good deal from WotC?

February 18, 2018 3:54 p.m.

I also would like to see Ihsan's Shade in this set, as I am certain that that card would look great in the new border style and with new artwork.

February 18, 2018 8:35 a.m.

Murder is being reprinted; I would have much preferred Mortify, Putrefy, Terminate, Unmake, Utter End, or Anguished Unmaking, but at least WotC is not reprinting Impale.

I also would like to see Undermine and Recoil reprinted, simply to keep them inexpensive and readily available, and, although Time Warp was recently reprinted (thankfully), it still could use another reprint to keep its price low.

February 17, 2018 4:35 p.m.

I really hope that WotC does not discontinue From the Vault with the arrival of this series, since I really enjoy FtV and this game really does not need yet another product that focuses on planeswalkers, and also because FtV contains fifteen cards in each set while this new series shall be only nine cards per set, which is ridiculous for the MSRP that they shall have.

February 15, 2018 8:13 p.m.

shadow63, I would not count them, because they do not depict named characters, as was my intention with this thread.

February 15, 2018 8:09 p.m.

clayperce, your mentioning of Shattergang Brothers has led me to include Sen Triplets, since they are multiple characters depicted on the same card.

February 14, 2018 8:59 p.m.

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.

I very much liked Huatli meeting Saheeli; they will definitely be the best of friends.

It was very nice to see Angrath finally return home, after having been away for so long, but I noticed that the name of his plane was not revealed, which means one of two things; either it will never be mentioned again, because it is not important, or the writers are maintaining suspense because it will be important in a later block.

I am glad that Vraska is now the leader of the Golgari guild, but I hope that Boals did not detect Jace's alteration of her memory, and I wonder if she shall remain the guild leader after Jace restores her memory?

Jace certainly has much catching up to do, and I do hope that there are at least several week's worth of stories detailing how Gideon arrived on Dominaria and formed new allies.

The Sun Empire taking control of Orazca was not a major surprise, so I wonder when the story shall revisit them on Ixalan?

Overall, this was definitely an excellent way to conclude the Ixalan block, and I hope that the stories for the next set are as good as were these.

February 14, 2018 6:26 p.m.

In honor of today being Valentine's Day, I wish to make a list of every card that depicts two characters, and invite discussion of such cards.

-Anax and Cymede

-Tibor and Lumia

-Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis

-Mina and Denn, Wildborn

-Gisa and Geralf

-Pia and Kiran Nalaar

Have I missed anyone? What other cards depict two characters from the story?

February 14, 2018 6:21 p.m.

smackjack, a person could actually emulate those consoles, and many more, on a computer, which I have been doing, but some people wish for the sense of nostalgia from owning a physical console and using the controllers.

One aspect of the two mini consoles that I dislike is the severely small selection of games that each console has; given how greatly technology has advanced since the original releases of those consoles, the entire library of each console could be fit into a single device, or at least every game that was highly-regarded and does not require third-party licensing.

February 10, 2018 7:15 p.m.

pinecone2k3, yes, I agree with that, as well; if the film had not been called Godzilla, it might have been received, and remembered, better, akin to how Van Halen III would have been a great album by the standards of lesser bands, but by VH's own standards, it was a failure.

February 10, 2018 3:58 p.m.

Phyrexian Obliterator has been spoiled! Although I currently do not need another copy of it, I am very pleased that it is beign reprinted, to make it more affordable. I do dislike how the Phyrexian watermark on the reprint is different from the watermark on the original printing, but that is a minor difference.

February 10, 2018 3:56 p.m.

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

February 10, 2018 3:50 p.m.

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?

I believe that this story provided a mostly satisfactory conclusion to the story of Ixalan.

Angrath's departure was very nice and perfectly in-character for him; I do wish that he had had more presence in the story, but it is safe to presume that he shall return, again.

I do like how Elenda rebuked Vona and Mavren Fein, so I hope that the legion is less hostile in the future.

I severely disliked how the emperor disregarded Huatli's story and wanted her to tell his own, so I hope that she openly defies him or at least makes some effort to undermine him.

However, I do like how the story ended on a positive note, and I expect that Huatli will appear again, later in the story.
