#MTGWAR is a massive crossover event book of a Magic set. I like event books when they get epic but can communicate storylines that get us invested in characters. Like, I remember the major characters of Crisis on Infinite Earths despite reading it 30 years ago.
Lady Quark, Pariah, Harbinger, the Monitor, the Anti-Monitor being the new characters who had major roles and weren’t part of the Superfriends. (I watched that as a kid.) Flash, Superman, Supergirl being major players I recognized, along with an obvious B-Lister, Psycho Pirate.
How do I know these characters? Because despite the massive cast, we had enough simple POVs, and they mattered. That was good storytelling, and that’s what I want out of #MTGWAR . So who do I think will be the main POV characters?

Let's talk about the new Frantic Search art by @mmalloyart.

This piece is filled with easter eggs, objects from other cards throughout Magic history. I have confirmed 13 with Mitchell so far, and I'm pretty sure that is all of them.

Thread time. #MTG #MTGUMA #Vorthos
#1: Sarpadian Empires, Vol. VII

My brand appears in the left column, identified by its rough edges, rugged cover, and it's violet bookmark ribbon.
#2: Book of Rass

This tome is easily identifiable by its gem-inlaid cover.

Liliana Vess story;

Forget about Nicol Bolas, Yawgmoth or that junior devil Ob Nixilis.

The most evil vilain in the Multiverse (after our Elder Lord Belzenlok of course) is Liliana Vess.

Here a thread about it.

#mtgDom #Vorthos
You probably heard about these dark tales and legend around the Caligo swamps, tales about ghosts and a tragic murder story that ended the house of Vess who ruled this place long ago.

Here is the truth.
When she was younger, Liliana Vess was trained to become a white mana healer.

But she was ambitious and wanted to become powerfull.

So, through some Dark Dabbling, she poisoned her elder brother Josu, turning him into an undead.

This evil act ignited her planewalker spark

25 years of Phyrexia machinations

In the following thread, I will go through the story of #Phyrexia set by set.

Buckle up and sit tight.

The first mention of Urza and Mishra was in Alpha on these 3 cards.

When Alpha and Beta sold out, WOTC needed new sets quickly. They made Antiquities in less than 6 month with the Brother's War and Phyrexia as the story
In Antiquities, Mishra and Urza are two brother who dig ancient Thran artifacts to wage war against each other.

"One #ArabianNights tale concerns an evil blacksmith who repented his ways and, as a result, found that he could handle fire and forge metal with his bare hands -- thus, a 1/2 creature with protection from Red."


Sick with fear that his glorious realm will pass away, the Caliph Haroun persuades the Sandman to take the city into dream, where it will live forever. In similar fashion, City in a Bottle removes all Arabian Nights cards from the game, except itself
Several characters in the folktales of original #ArabiansNight rub fishliver oil over their bodies to gain the ability to breath under water.
