"each booster pack will contain a planeswalker." So, @SliverQueen, I think you can consider THAT rumor substatiated... except it's not the prerelease packs. It's just the PACKS.

First things first: HE

All leading the Selesnya Squirrel Corps into battle, decapitating an eternal with his bare hand.

A Joyous New Ajani Day to You and Yours.

Secondly: They seem to be putting Brandon Sanderson's walker in the game! Which is exciting.

Third: We've got all the favorites we were expecting... Samut, Vivian, Huatli... and some we weren't: Ashiok! Tibalt! Jiang Yangu! Possibly Mu Yanling if that's who it is under that stylish planeswalking hat!

But... who is this?!

Show thread

I at least have a guess for everyone else, but not for this person!

The closest thing I have to a guess is... "is Emmara going to Spark?!"

But I'll admit the colors look wrong for that... so is this someone from the Dominarian Serran Church? Emrakul taking an 'Emeria' form after deciding she wants to get to know Tamiyo and Nissa? WHO?!

Fourth: I'm... regarding this as confirmation of my "Nicol Bolas plans to eat other people's sparks" theory:

@ajanionthespot So at least seven walkers in each prerelease kit. That's silliness.

Looks like [[Jiang Yanggu]] will be there too? That would be exciting! @askurza

@ajanionthespot that's going to change the landscape a *lot*... I am really looking forward to this format. And that stained glass... 🤩

I'm guessing the prerelease packs will be like DOM did with legends, with one stamped rare (that might be a Planeswalker) and one stamped walker (that might be rare).

@SliverQueen And since planeswalkers are legendary, Historic could be a viable keyword?

@ajanionthespot No idea who this gal might be (looks Azorius to me. Maybe Lavinia sparks?), but doesn't that kinda look like Teferi's staff?

Potential Spoiler for Children of the Nameless 

@ajanionthespot I might need to make a Squirrels deck now, it may only want three silver-bordered cards

@ajanionthespot @SliverQueen holy crap, I’m so happy they posted these art pieces and so sad they won’t be the card art. I really need a full set of prints if possible. Stained glass style art is one of my absolute favorites and these are amazing. Narset and Tamiyo ❤️❤️❤️

@Tayatranscendent @SliverQueen The Tamiyo is gorgeous: I love that they did her face in that sort-of Ukiyo-e style.

@ajanionthespot @SliverQueen Narset looks almost like a central Asian version of Storm and I’m completely sold on that. Tamiyo was never a favorite of mine until the bits about her story magic and her family were added. Now she’s my second favorite walker.
