REBLOG If you’re not widely known in the fandom! Let’s spread the word!
I’m looking through the notes on this and finding new blogs to follow. : D
Reblogging, not ‘cause I need followers, but because my followers need more Magic on their dashes.
Hello, Magic Tumblr community. Come follow my blog and maybe not get eaten by Hydras! Maybe!
Shandalar is a cool plane. It’s where a lot of cards from the core sets come from these days. Shandalar also dates way back to Ice Age. After the Brothers war in Antiquities, Dominaria and 11 other planes were broken off of the rest of the multiverse. This group of planes became a shard that was not connected to the rest of the multiverse and any planeswalker born on one of these planes or unlucky enough to be there when it happened was essentially trapped and cut off from the blind enternities. The one way back to Dominaria or off it turned out to be Shandalar. Since Shandalar travels as it wills around the multiverse, it turned out it got close to the shard with the isolated planes and they were able to reconnect with the multiverse through some heroic actions and the Ice Age was ended.
Things We Know for Sure:
- It is a Large-Small-Large block. Source
- They are doing something they have never done before with the block structure. Source
- The block contains two things that players have been wanting for a long time. Source
- One of them is something they are bringing back after a long absence.
- The other is something they haven’t done yet.
- Tarkir is the home plane of Sarkhan Vol. There used to be mighty dragons on Tarkir, but they have all been killed. Source & Source
- The other two sets in the block are unknown, but the names Dragons of Tarkir and Warlords of Khanar have also been trademarked by Wizards of the Coast.
- There are cards in Magic 2015 that are seeds for Khans of Tarkir. Source
- Dragons are the most popular iconic creature type. Source
Speculation Based on this Info:
- They’ve definitely done Large-Small-Large before, but they have not done Large-Small-Large in which all three sets are drafted together. That might be the unique element about the block structure that they’ve been hinting at.
Only a month until Gen Con. I need to figure out what commander decks I’m going to take. Anybody else going? If so what are you brining?
Here’s to hoping that it’s not as limited as last time. A lot of people who showed up to the San Diego Comic Convention last year couldn’t even get their own copy, and they currently go for $600 on Ebay.
This will make completing my “every planeswalker ever printed” collection much much harder…
