MTG – Top Predictions For Dominaria, Magic: The Gathering’s Make or Break Set


Garth waved his hands in a circle and managed to erect a circle of protection From his opponents onslaughts, then he doubled the circle though He was doing no damage to his foe at least his attacker was no longer damaging him More undead appeared, but were repulsed by the screen then another strike towards his mana But it was stopped as well the captain now turned his attention toward the Hornets which were Swarming towards him and in an instant they fell to the ground their power to fly drained away Writhing about, they curled up and died. Oh hello! 25 years of Magic the Gathering is about to culminate in what will either be the ultimate Magic the Gathering set reinvigorating the playerbase savings standard setting the tone for another quarter of a century of excellent gameplay and collectible cards or perhaps the final dud nail in the dugged coffin that Signifies the end of an era a point of no return There’s a lot riding on Domon area, and I strongly believe this one set is make-or-break For a game that has seen better years Iq went into this prediction video at a crossroads do I present my? Pessimistic predictions or my optimistic ones do I have faith in the future or see more? disappointment on the horizon I choose hope I Believe Wizards of the coast knows just how much is riding on this one set and I see the shape of the game to come As a result presented here are my predictions for the new set and in some ways the new philosophy of both Domon area and Magic the Gathering But first let’s see how I did last time for Ixalan I made a series of predictions and even doubled down with a double wager on my number one So what do I predict for exelon how about this first start no world in peril? I Predict a return to tribal matters and tribal based mechanics We will see only one set on da mineira Followed by three sets linked together on the same plane and that this returning plane is going to be somewhere I’m gonna call corporate safe Okay, so we don’t know if this one is correct. Yeah I was right in calling at the time that da mineira will just be one set But there’s no word on what the false set will be and whether we will see three full sets on the same Corporate safe plane as I predicted it does seem to be hinting at a Ravnica return to return to so I still think we are going to see Dom an area followed by the core set Followed by a trilogy on at this point gonna say Ravnica But for now, I neither gain nor lose a point on that prediction and so prediction number four is that these? Mechanics in the set will be heavily tempo based and hack a new investigate like mechanic giving us I don’t know gold ingots instead of clue tokens, but still based around card draw will be very in flavor. Don’t you think? By number one prediction is one that has already bit me on the behind, but I am going to double down on it here That’s right mark This as a double bat meaning that if I lose then I lose two points when I’m wrong But if I’m right I get two points if I’m correct and that prediction is the return yes I’m saying it again the return of colorless mana matters Okay, so negative two points there because they still did not bring back colorless mana Thank God But leaving off my still unconfirmed or undenied Prediction of the shape of sets to come I still got three correct, which isn’t too shabby So what are my predictions for dama Neriah? Well I not only have confidence We are going to see these in the new set But I feel that these predictions are critical points to hit Not doing these things would in my opinion be an escalation of bad decision-making prediction number one a bridge between the old storyline and the new connections between new walkers and old are going to occur in Domon area I Expect to see Ursa in some form if only just a memory or spirit guide and Ursa will be connected to Jace we are going to see connections between not just the storylines, but new walkers and old Chandra to jaya Nyssa to probably Freya Lee’s Nicole bolus I’m thinking a connection to yog Moth will seem mirroring of new walkers and old and will tie all the stories together Now I myself have poked fun in the past at how characters like Chandra and Nyssa are Similar and reminiscent of characters like Jaya and Frey Lee’s but I think that actually admitting and acknowledging That mirror between characters can serve the plot in a positive way it can be the passing of the torch That we never really had a way to say yes. This is the next generation Of walkers they are going to carry the mantle that for so long Was held up by characters like Jaya and Teferi And I think that this is going to be a really nice way to bring Everybody in magic the gathering new players and old new walkers and old under the same tent prediction number two as of the filming of this video They have not even hinted at this, but I am going to say it right now the return of Masterpieces, and I think that these masterpieces will be the most famous and iconic cards from throughout Magic’s history that are not on the reserve list Reprinted with a border that is reminiscent of the original foil possibly with a star and some real power Basically, this is going to be them cutting loose with masterpieces. They’re gonna get it right this time printing cards like Sylvan library Caracas Wasteland cards players want and want to play Not just old cards like bad moon or Savannah lions and in many ways I think that this return to Masterpieces done right will be like a mini master set within the dama Neriah set all right Coming in at number three. I predict that the three Planeswalkers that we saw in our first and only promotional image for da mineira The image containing Joya to ferry and carne these three Planeswalkers are the three? Planeswalkers that we’re going to see cards of in this set so yes There are still going to be planeswalker cards in Domon area, but I boldly predict that Wizards of the coast is smart enough to one time just one time not have any new walkers as planeswalker cards and bank on that Nostalgia commit to the idea of dom an area for real have faith in its player base and offer us joyeux to ferry and corn as The Planeswalkers of this set this would be a really great move because of the fact that it would be refreshing Had just having Jason da mineira or having Chandra and da mineira or even a Johnny We’ve seen these planes Walker’s as cards before we’ve seen it a million times And it means nothing there’s nothing special about it at this point What are they gonna do give jason new hat let’s see to ferry as a planeswalker card Let’s see corn as a new planeswalker card one that doesn’t break modern this time and but actually is good Can you that balance doesn’t break modern? But is actually good and so forth and so on I think that this is what we’re going to see in terms of the Planeswalkers And I’m excited for it prediction number two we are going to have a popularity contest of mechanics What better way to celebrate 25 years than by? Investing design space and effort into not coming up with new Mechanics not coming up with one-time mechanics But instead putting that effort and energy and brilliance that exists in Rd into using the best mechanics from throughout MAGIX history if Anything I feel this will be the theme of Dom an area, not just flavor and lore and nostalgia shout outs But mechanics shout outs the favorite mechanics flashed back and yes I mean flashback one of the most popular non evergreen mechanics. There is Things like landfall. Yeah, we just had cycling, but who cares bring it back again bring back our most popular mechanics and do them as best you can for the best gameplay experience at the end of the day more so than Nostalgia more so than artwork more so than gimmicks like Planeswalker cards what it’s about in Magic the Gathering I’m gonna say this throughout the year because this is the make-or-break year for Magic But I’m going to say the phrase it’s the game play stupid And that’s what it comes down to number one we need a new mechanic No, you have the best McHugh of 25 years of mechanics. Take the best and do great things With them I am gonna stop short of saying that this set will have no new mechanics But if ever there was a set to introduce. No new mechanics. It would be the 25th anniversary celebration Set on Domon area But even if there are a few that are new I think that returning mechanics is Going to be a theme is going to be something we embrace and it’s not just gonna be some random one like absorb It’s going to actually be the most popular mechanics from throughout Magic’s history Oh an extra-credit prediction of a sorts I bet they do one card just one card in the set with banding for giggles And if they do this to me shows they understand the importance and value of humor and joy in gameplay and will be a huge sign to me that magic is headed out of the stagnant waters of Repetition and abiding blindly to rules of cookie-cutter sets and instead is looking to make the best Gameplay experience possible instead one card with banding. It’s about the gameplay stupid But my number one prediction and the most important prediction for not only da mineira But for Magic the Gathering in terms of its gameplay going forward is just that I predict We will finally see a return to powerful Magic the Gathering Gameplay we have gone in recent years for more and more complex gameplay that doesn’t actually make the cards more Powerful it looks like VCR instructions are written on most cards But what it ends up saying at the end of the day after all this complexity is Target creature gets plus one plus one or something that has no impact on the larger collection of cards such as that This needs to end and I think it’s going to end and we’re finally going to get to be able to play Magic again, not going set to set making each one less powerful than the one before it But rather we are going to see and I’m saying it here reprinting lightning bolt in standard reprinting doom blade in standard reprinting Birds-of-paradise in standard cards that were the core of this game for a quarter of a century But were removed to water everything down to make everything less fun Less enjoyable less powerful while making room to simply add needless complexity We’re done with that because it’s destroying the game and my number one prediction is we are seeing a new era one where the defining cards of magic will Finally see your return am I right or am I wrong only time will tell, but now I want to hear from you What are your predictions? pessimistic or optimistic For dominar eeeh let me know in the comments below, and as this set is revealed as wizards game plan is Made apparent.
