March of the Machine previews

Well it’s spoiler season again and with the cards that were shown off this weekend it got my excitement back up to a whole new high. This story has been amazing and done so well that I can not wait to see how it ends. The Phyrexians coming back bigger and better than ever has been such a fun way to use nostalgia and progress the story (or if you think like me, reset the multiverse) but with that, let’s look into what has been shown.

Let’s start with more awesome completions. With all will be one we got some of the most popular planeswalkers being turned into perfect weapons to be used in the war against the multiverse. What could be worse than that? Phyrexian Gods! One of the first cards spoiled was Heliod, the Radiant Dawn.

It is a transforming god that one side is the regular Heliod and the back side is him after he has been completed. The card’s flavored text is Ajani barking orders to “Complete the faith. Complete the god.” Now the major question is do they stop at one? I doubt it. How better to end a rebellion on a plane than to take the gods?

Well the next card may answer that question. How better to end a rebellion? Maybe by Compleating the living embodiment of mana on the plane. Omnath, Locus of All may be the scariest acquisition yet. Finally all 5 colors it is a terrifying monster on the loose. Now that leaves us with the good guys that got revealed.

Next, they did something interesting. Each card shows off two “heroes” from the plane. While we won’t be covering these extensively here I’ll name them for you. We have Ghalta and Mavren, Yarlge and Multani, Drana and Linvala, Thalia and Gitrog. Now the first thing that is easy to point out is that some of these pairs are not people you would expect to work together. The next is the planes they chose to show off here; Zendikar, Dominaria, Innistrad, Ixilan, and technically Eldraine with another card previewed. 

The number of monsters or people that could be completed is both terrifying and amazing. There are the long shots like Emerekul but some of the more realistic bets are still awesome. Could you imagine seeing the Questing Beast as a phyrexian horror on top of its already formidable power? What about Gishath from Ixilan? I wonder what a Gisa being soaked in glistening oil looks like? There is just so many options that I’m going to be like a kid on Christmas morning waiting for this next set to be fully previewed. 

If Dragonlord Kolaghan can be completed, there aren’t many who can’t!

Want to see what we think is coming? What may be ‘The Tag Team to End All Tag Teams’? CLICK here for the speculation!

What are you most looking forward to as this story unfolds? We have plenty more coming covering what we think is going on and what it means going forward and all this from a handful of cards. Let us know in the comments what team of hero’s you want to see on a card or what/who you hope get completed. We look forward to hearing from and and thanks for taking the time to read this. We will see you next time!
