Dominaria Art Preview

~
Happy Friday MTG peeps,

It is Friday and why not make it magic.  Get thee to a Friday Night Magic event at a local gaming store.  MTG Realm is attending OMG! Games, here in Barrie, Ontario and taking along one or more rogue decklists which, although designed to find vulnerabilities with the current meta-game, may simply fail to launch.  

Anywhoos, some Magic: the Gathering news out today from PAX Unplugged taking place 17th to 19th November in Philadelphia.  Here Wizards of the Coast was reported to preview four (4!) pieces of art from the upcoming set Dominaria, to be released in April, 2018.  



Understandably, there is a lot of player excitement and nostalgia for this, so it will not go unnoticed that any previews will be met with a level of raucousness.  It is unclear at this time what each of these arts may be, but we have lent our our prognostications below.

The fan community did indeed go wild over this one.  Thought to be Jaya (Ballard) by Yongjae Choi, who may have founded the fire mage academy on Regatha, where Chandra studied.

Linessa by Magali Villeneuve, possibly with the Academy on Tolaria West in the background.  Some claim this may be Narset travelling to Dominaria.

Absolutely gorgeous art here, and rather reminiscent of the Orzhov style on Ravnica.  Thought to be a Benalish Knight, illustrated by Chris Rallis, possibly shown within the Angelfire Churche of Serra and Gabriel.

Elf by Chris Rahn.  We think a dark Elf (green / black), possibly an Elf of the Thelonite Order from Havenwood who had manipulated fungus and dark magic to create sentient Thallids.
