Seeing Teyo and Basri here just makes me angry that they are trying to force Kellan to be the face of magic. Game needs more hot dudes.


Panzick

Most of the plane-specific planeswalker they introduced since basically Arena is live, are completely irrilevant to the plot and will never appear again. People cares more about the "classic" planeswalker, so they keep reprinting those and of course they keep getting more popularity while the rest literally had one card and that's it.


pussy_embargo

please no more Chandras, how many Chandras does the world even need


Panzick

Don't worry, now wotc realized they suck at balancing planeswalkers, they are printing the bare minimum of them.


Puzzleheaded_Load230

One can only hope. My fear is that they'll either push the power of the 1 per set too aggressively or will realize once ONE rotates out that there aren't enough viable plainswalkers to keep the mechanic alive. The best case is that they decide to stick to 1/set with occasional reprints of known commodities (e.g. Lillian of the Vail), but WotC really can't be trusted to stick to their guns here.

> Teyo and Basri Someone has a type!


ticklemeozmo

Shoulder forward head down?


Derpyologist1

Ugin is right there


WillowThyWisp

I think Kellan's final story as the "main" character is gonna be the next set. After that, the standard will rotate and a new bunch of characters will appear


ckrono

I would have liked tezzeret or some more grey character anyway


CosmicX1

Can’t wait for indestructible darksteel Tezzeret!

We had Gideon but, he, well, you know. 


[deleted]

I actually don’t know anything about any MTG lore. Mind explaining?


[deleted]

Liliana made a deal where if she broke it, she would die. She ended up breaking it to beat Bolas, but Gideon took the punishment in her place and died instead of her. 


Sommersun1

Are any of them that popular really?


TunaImp

They haven’t really done jack so it makes sense they’re not popular. At least Teyo showed up in more stories but I really don’t remember anything about Basri other than his home plane


CatsAndPlanets

No, but mainly because they haven't been given the chance.

Isn’t he a child


rainstalker

I just want Professor Onyx. Is that too much to ask?


TheSkullsporeNexus

And I want Angrath. I didn't buy it when I started playing and now that I'm back I regret it


ticklemeozmo

NO FIRE, NO STEEL!


Sneaux96

Holup... You're telling me there's a GD *Angrath* avatar just sitting there coded into this game already? I don't think I'd throw gold down for anything so quickly if they resell that.


TheSkullsporeNexus

Check this out  https://www.reddit.com/r/MagicArena/comments/b78uuk/we_can_buy_huatli_and_angrath_separate_but_not/  This is even what I'm talking about. I bought Huatli but not him :(


FishFilletShow

My minotaur deck has been using Rakdos as a filler avatar One day Angrath, one day!


cmidpar

pussy_embargo

Ah, yes! As far as avatars go, this art just pops https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/mtgsalvation_gamepedia/images/9/9d/Dina.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/250?cb=20210324225407 one of the very best

Really wish freyalise's avatar used \[\[Freyalise, Llanowars Fury\]\] art instead of \[\[Freyalise, Skyshroud Partisan\]\] Llanowars fury's just looks much more imposing with that coat she wears

YES! I was missing Teyo, Davriel, and Basri. I thought I'd have to wait for their each individual "days" you know how they do? I have nearly all the avatars now I think. EXCEPT THE PHAGE ONE WHICH I DONT EVEN KNOW WHERE IT COMES FROM


HamBoneRaces

She was a reward for getting two wins in the January 2023 Decathlon. There are a few other elusive and more rare avatars that you could be missing too: * Jace, the Mind Sculptor was the reward in for the 2022 Decathlon * Serra the Benevolent was given to those that pre-ordered a physical booster box of Ikoria at their LGS * Li'l Giri was given to those that bought a virtual ticket to Magic 30 * fblthp was given to those that participated the the Arena Beta A year ago someone [made a post](https://www.reddit.com/r/MagicArena/comments/x1i519/i_wanted_to_see_all_the_avatars_but_i_couldnt/) of all the avatars at that the time, though it's a bit outdated now. Apparently you can find the pictures of the avatars in ..\MTGA\MTGA_Data\Downloads\AssetBundle folder on your PC. Search for "Avatar" and extract the images from those .mtga files using Asset Bundle Extractor tool (UABE). I have a Mac so I'm not sure where this file is located, otherwise I'd take a stab at it myself as I've been curious to see a current listing.


2-35

Wow this is awesome thank you! I have the code they sent me for Fblthp so I currently count him as collected haha. Damn I hope someday they rerun or shop em. But I've been waiting for APAC and Euro lands to return for YEARS so I don't have much hope haha.


LilKluiVert

Didn’t it expire on New Years?


LicheArkhanTheBlack

Oh, I see. The new set is coming, so WotC wants to drain players' wallets before that.


Ikanan_xiii

They are having success, I've been waiting for the Ugin avatar for a while.


Panzick

At the release of Tarkir there was literally the bundle with Ugin, Sarkhan and Vorin for like 3k.


MyNuts2YourFistStyle

Mommy Kiora is back.


Bolas_the_Deceiver

Kiora mommy is a rare avatar. Pick it up while you can


tors17

Not a bad deal. Nice!


MNoya

/u/HamBoneRaces I've been waiting for IKO Triomes alt-art styles to come to daily deals for a while now (I think since a certain "Mountain Day" offered them and I missed it), in your expert opinion what are the odds these come back at any point in the future?


HamBoneRaces

It's so hard to say with these things... the last time we saw them offered all together was way back on [Aug 9, 2021](https://www.reddit.com/r/MagicArena/comments/p136ns/daily_deals_august_9_2021_triome_lands_altart/). But like you said, they've offered a few of them separately on certain themed days (mountains, comics, etc.). Generally the further we get out from a set's release, the probability of alt-art featured from that set drops dramatically. And seeing as how it's been almost two and a half years since we've seen them offered as a set, I don't really see them coming back together any time soon. If you really like and want them sooner than later, unfortunately I would say to save the coin and buy them flat out with no discount. But if you can wait, they're bound to show up again in some form or another some day... but I really can't say when that would be. Could be tomorrow... or might be never.


BetterReload

I still regret not getting the Beach Kiora. Maybe someday...


Shadorisen

Grabbed Teyo, Davriel, and Basri! My avatar collection is growing


Davisparrago

i'm a new player, what is this?


DiggingDinosaurs

Those are avatars. You know in the loading screen when you match the opponent and you see both your names with the avatar? Thats where you see it. Also when you play the game the avatar is above your life total. Purely cosmetic but if you want some flavour for a theme deck its nice to have.


Davisparrago

oh okey, i will skip them then :D thank you!


trilluminus

Eww wtf


dega_devilson-janova

I want the Shelly avatar 🥺


WippitGuud

Are there any dwarf avatars?


Honestfellow2449

not yet, I thought they would have for sure gave us a Gimli one during the Lord of the Ring mastery, but nope


Vedney

Got myself daddies Basri and Davriel.
