Hey Mark, since you linked the story article earlier, can you confirm or deny that Ikoria will be getting a summary like that or something a little longer? Ps. When we gonna get an Un-story?

Ikoria will have a story, not just a summary.


Well, let's get the foundation of this thread started I guess.

Aw, I was looking forward to another horrific "story through the cards" disaster summed up at the last second.

I'm cautiously optimistic for the Kaiju plane being something new.

That first image is not official Ikoria art at all. It's just Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner and some other monster photoshopped together for an Aether Hub video thumbnail.

I still don't think Kiora will be involved, because having a story about Kiora on a plane called Ikoria would sound incredibly silly and would probably also confuse new players.

I'm definitely getting Monster Hunter vibes from that ad card, though.

ikoria is an anagram of I, kiora. Coincidence?

Ah.
I see Vivian is the figure in the insert.
It'd be nice to work out what her story might be now that her vengeance is done, at least in her mind.

Vivien is the more eco terrorist form of Garruk so she is probably looking for some big monsters to shove into her magic bow to continue her plot irrelevance.

She really should have been the antagonist in Rav 3 alongside Domri

Couldn't have happened. Her entire deal was to murder Bolas since he destroyed her world.

Maybe they'll be mega righteous and mega good fighting against a antagonist who represents the evils of greed, with maybe one nutcase on the side.
