    It would seriously take a lot less effort to post an image or two of upcoming cards, than it does to keep making excuses not to.


    It's not that simple. If they drop an image of upcoming cards. They would have to be the plain and boring common cards with no abilities posted. And everyone would be annoyed by that and is something best left alone.

    I they posted a card with abilities [read as mechanics] that we do not yet understand ... you can only imagine the uproar that may occur because players are making uninformed opinions about said revealed cards ... often demanding a fix. IMHO Oktagon is playing it wisely rather than repeat the mistakes that Hibernium made in the past.

    So in short, it takes FAR less effort not to release an image thus avoiding an uninformed tinykitty storm than to Release some images and dealing with the tinykitty storm that could have been prevented by a compiled release. Just sayin'

    I was going to continue the song for a brief moment, but then you skipped about 2 and a half verses!

    I mean....please keep all comments on the original topic of Ixalan. Thank you!

    @Brigby is it possible to know if a new Planeswalker would come out the same time the new set comes out or it would be a few weeks behind? Any clue on who the planeswalker would be? Color combinations,etc. Thank you!!

    I want vraska. and a new jace. and like, approximately 100% of the cards from Ixalan. let the hype begin in full force!
    C'mon, 2 Jace is more than enough for now. I would much rather see Angrath, Huatli or whatever older PW that was omitted by mtgpq creators.

    Planes walkers in ixalan:

    Vraska, black green
    Jace, blue
    Huatli, white red
    Angrath, red black
    Huatli, white green

    Theoretically also monoblack vraska from intro decks

    If they follow the patterns they've followed before, then there are three PWs that we can expect to be released with this next set. They are:

    1. Vraska, who is Black & Green. In the paper game, she's focused on pirate tribal abilities. I really hope they don't go that route; tribally-tied PWs are not as fun in my book, nor as useful. That being said, I really have no idea what to expect from Oktagon in their first set, since we have no previous basis for comparison. So I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
    2. Huatli, who is Red & White. Her paper version is tribal as well, only this one is focused on dinosaurs. Again, I hope we don't get something like that in PQ, but I guess we'll see...
    3. Jace, who is mono-Blue. I'm very intrigued to see how they handle this one. He has some interesting and unique abilities on his paper card.

    Rivals of Ixalan is another matter though. There are only two PWs in that set.

    1. A new version of Huatli, who is Green and White.
    2. Angrath, who is a brand new Black and Red PW.

    I'm most excited about these two, but I think we'll end up having to wait a lot longer for them since they're from the set that comes immediately after the Ixalan base set.

    Thanks guys. All new PWs sound interesting. A jace3 doesnt sound bad too, since we got 3 versions of the gatewatch already but him.

    @Matthew Bolas was a huge success as oktagons first walker :)

    Powerful, but balanced, with abilities that are well rounded

    Disagree. "Destroy" as his first is too extreme and his hit points are too high. The rest is ok, but the constantly escalating hitpoints is dumb and the first should be "-5/-5" rather than direct destroy.''

    I did the black trial today and only _1_ opponent wasn't Bolas. While not completely broken everything _is_ skewed towards him currently.
