    War of the Spark has 36 planeswalkers?

    The speculation right now is that the next set will feature 36 planeswalkers. Iím not gonna go into the storyline rumors because I dont want to spoil anything else, but how would 36 planeswalkers impact the format and which planeswalker are you most excited to see? Iím rooting for the Kenrith duo.


    Here's the list via CptHaddock:

    Probably has to be a really slow format, and I am not sure how they are going to pull of designing that many unique walkers, they have a hard enough time making every planeswalker unique and playable when they print less than 5 in a set. Maybe this will bring about more cards that interact with the card type.

    This sounds like a gigantic clusterfuck. Given that they're already planning to release PWs at rare according to Maro, at least that isn't a concern. Chances are we might see some reprints.

    What concerns me more is the story implication - we have members of the Jacetice League and some walkers allied Bolas. Most of the other walkers should have zero reason to give a fuck about the events in Ravnica.

    I think another interesting question would be what would a new format look like where all plainswalker cards are banned.

    That would make for a pretty miserable limited experience (and also probably standard environment). If they really are going to print anywhere near that amount, one of them should be DRS.

    Color me skeptical that 36 cards will have the Planeswalker type...

    I'll guess 10 at most. We'll probably see a bunch of 'signature spells' with the Walker's name in it, or based on the possibility of Walker's losing their spark, Legendary creatures.

    Finally we can get a reprint of tibalt that doesn't look like garbage!

    On a second thought I also think it will be a format with legendary creatures based on planeswalkers who have lost their spark. This means that we will have another legendary set. I'm gonna get a couple of Mox Ambers just in case.

    I think there's a chance we'll see non-legendary planeswalkers who are cheap on mana with mediocre abilities. They have gone out of their way to screw with the typing system enough to do this and out of their way to make it so you can have tons of walkers for some reason. It may be that they want to ruin the game *just one last time*

    Thanks, edited. I'm missing Will & Rowan Kennrith and Daretti

    Teyo Verada is a confirmed new planeswalker

    "Teyo Verada wants nothing more than to be a shieldmage, wielding arcane energies to protect his people from his worldís vicious diamondstorms. When heís buried alive in the aftermath of his first real tempest, the young mageís life is about to end before it can truly beginóuntil it doesnít. In a flash, a power he didnít know he had whisks him away from his home, to a world of stone, glass, and wonder: Ravnica. Teyo is a Planeswalker, one of many to be called to the world-spanning cityóall lured by Nicol Bolas, the Elder Dragon. Bolas lays siege to the city of Ravnica, hungry for the ultimate prize: godhood itself. His unparalleled magic and unstoppable army appear poised to bring the city to utter ruin.

    Among those who stand in the way of Bolasís terrifying machinations are the Gatewatch, Planeswalkers sworn to defeat evil, no matter where itís found. But as they work to unite the other mages and mount a defense of the city and its people, the terrifying truth of Bolasís plan becomes clear. The Elder Dragon has prepared a trap to ensnare the most powerful mages from across the Multiverseóand itís too late to escape.

    As forces great and small converge on the city and the battle rages, the stakes could not be higher. If the Gatewatch falters and the Planeswalkers fail, the curtain will fall on the age of heroesóand rise on the infinite reign of Nicol Bolas."
    Can only be cast from the graveyard like Haakon?

    Return of trap cards?

    I hope this is a joke.
    Same PW again and again and again. Do they really dont have ideas how to make a proper story without Old PW.

    At the end i just want a non-blue and non-liliana PW playable in legacy. This will be nice.

    Re: War of the Spark has 36 planeswalkers?

    I wonder if we get any reverse Core-Flipwalkers.

    Starts out as a Planeswalkers with only a 0 and - ability, and if you use the minus ability it flips into a legendary creature.

    Seems like a good was to demonstrate 'losing a spark' in a functional way...

    Considering the whole Jacetice League thing started when WotC jumped on Marvel's superhero train, it seems like an odd coincidence to end the current Bolas saga exactly at the same time the current Marvel cinematic phase is ending with Avengers 4. Prelease is even on the same weekend as the cinematic opening, for fucks sake.

    Makes you wonder what fad is WotC is copying next. Probably Battle Royal.

    Target planeswalker becomes a legendary creature with power and toughness equal to the number of loyalty counters on it and loses all abilities.

    Lights out
