I could see that happening, especially since it'd be a good way to end Liliana's story (i.e. facing off another character who was corrupted by the chain veil) and also tie in to the hunt for the Bolas' devotees that was commanded by the ravnican guilds with Kaya appearing on the plane. And it would allow for more of a focus on Kaya in general if those three Planeswalkers were that story line.

Just because there are better six Mana options does not necessarily mean a card is bad. It's not black and white, there are shades of Gray (50 of them, to be precise). That's like saying Dragonlord Ojutai or Venser, the Sojourner are bad cards because Teferi, Hero of Dominaria exists. Honestly, these cards are exciting and fun, other than, as the fact that they have been over printing Planeswalkers.

Also DemonDragonJ we don't know if this is related to the story, it's from a core set. Like Sarkhan didn't really appear much in the most recent stories and he was a core set Planeswalkers last year.

Tbh I see all three of them being usable in edh. Frankly, the 6 mana one has an extremely usable +2 that has political implications, which is not really hard to find room for in most Rx Planeswalkers decks. Especially considering if you're playing RGx, you can probably get her out turn 3 or 4 (let's not pretend that high Mana costs are a restriction in commander), then turn on a damage doubler like Dictate of the Twin Gods . The fact it's uncounterable already helps with making it a threat, and then you're forgetting it can either partially clears the field the second it gets on the battlefield or it can get rid of a threat that moment. In addition, we just got Planebound Accomplice that essentially turns it into a one mana Burn Away or one mana Slagstorm .

The second thing with the mythic is that the emblem isn't just a stackable, but it's a +2 on a Planeswalkers with an already decent starting loyalty. If you activate it's plus, it'll still probably survive if you have creatures on the board. In addition, it can easily bounce back from using one of it's minuses the turn after, assuming you have things to protect it for one turn. Which, once again, it's commander, you're probably going to have some way to protect or recur it.

Is it fast enough for a deck like modern burn/rdw? No. Is it viable in a red Planeswalkers shell or a deck with a lot of elementals, like Ashling the Pilgrim or something similar? Absolutely.

Also, you're forgetting how useful a small field wipe and a repeatable and stackable emblem can be in long running commander games. Unless your opponent is resetting their life almost every turn, those emblems will become a clock.

Baby Chandra is useful in another way. There is almost never a situation where a Red deck couldn't use an alternative source of Mana for spells (in case they need to sac a land or two). Or use of her +1 just to get in some quick damage from an elemental.

The rare one protects itself, boosts other Planeswalker and gives a spell with three Mana or less flashback. Which is actually great when you consider similar Planeswalkers who did the same thing like flipped Jace. While she doesn't provide card advantage, she makes all your other red Planeswalkers better.

Are any of them the next Teferi? No. Are any of them going to break any games? No. Are they bad cards that aren't going to see play? Also no.

That mythic is incredibly powerful. Even just getting two or three of those emblems online is powerful, but a elemental safe Anger of the Gods / Sweltering Suns / Slagstorm and a Burn from Within too is amazing.

Honestly like I feel like Quid Pro Quo could use a better name and maybe something more unique than just as part of casting a spell or activating an ability.

Like I like the idea, but Quid Pro Quo just doesn't sound like a great keyword name.

Honestly this looks... Really good. Like Netflix has been doing pretty well in ensuring quality of its new shows, especially it's animated shows (The Dragon Prince, Hilda and the Netflix original animes have been all superb). Like especially because they try to aim it to be not just edgy adult humor but target all audiences at once, which means kids shows with great humor and deep writing or adult animation that isn't just bad sex joke after bad sex joke, instead focusing on deep themes.

My one concern is that they would try really really REALLY hard to jam a ton of lore into a few episodes (it's such a huge storyline after all) or have issues with giving some characters the story they deserve.

For example, if they start on Ravnica, I could see them really messing up Lavinia or Vraska.

Obviously the Boruvo detail was intended. Isn't it obvious?

This detail, the use of ninjutsu in MH1, the artwork in the last set being in fall, when leaves are important?

Boys were going to the Village hidden in the leaves next set! Pack your kunai!
