Today was an interesting day
The Magic Community has a hard time differentiating between what they want to happen and what they think will happen. Either that, or they genuinely think that Liliana of the Veil will be in M15. How could it not, with repeated references to the "veil".
Never mind that we have a pretty clear indicating that Garruk has gone full murdermaster.
What are the odds that Garruk and Liliana are both planeswalkers in the new set? If reddit voting is any indication (and I don't want to live in a world where it matters), a majority of people think that Garruk being a Green/Black Planeswalker rather than mono-black "because Nicol Bolas" is more likely than Garruk being mono-black. I think there are a lot of scenarios possible and I have seen every one of them fervently supported by someone.
- Liliana of the Veil is reprinted and Garruk is also in the set as a Green/Black Planeswalker
- Liliana of the Veil is NOT reprinted and Garruk is in the set as a Green/Black Planeswalker
- Both Garruk and Liliana of the veil are mono-black Planeswalker
There are lots more permutations and it's giving me a headache to list them all. I feel like I am insane, because I seemed to be the only one who thought of this.
- Garruk is in the set as a mono-black Planeswalker and Liliana of the Veil is not reprinted because Holy $@#% why would they do that?
I took to Twitter to see if I was the last sane person on earth.
I was pleased to see it get interesting.
QS Insider Kyle Lopez was spoiling for a bet and would take on all comers.
There was a glimmer of hope as it looked like Art Halavais was somehow silly enough to go for it, but it turns out they were just agreeing with each other SUPER HARD without knowing it.
So no one made a 5 figure bet today. Still, it seems like people who opinions I respect think Liliana of the Veil will not be in M15. That was all I wanted.
What do you think? Will Liliana of the Veil be in M15? Will it be a black Garruk? Green/Black Garruk? Both? Neither? Sound off below.
Unless you care to make it interesting...
