D&D 5E Wizards Presents show on August 18th! Update: WotC Teases hints!

I think they make excellent villains, so lets round up some heroes and take the fight to them!
Well, not meaning to give spoilers (though this is technically something revealed in a recent book, I guess)...

It would help a lot if the heroes specifically rounded up for fighting them didn't get "compleated" and/or murder other allied heroes. Because that's literally what happened. Ajani Goldmane apparently got compleated off-screen, and killed Jaya Ballard thereafter. So one of the people shown in this image is dead, another has been forcibly corrupted and turned into one of the horrific religio-fascist torture-fetishists, and the third is the leader of the religio-fascist torture-fetishists.

And sorry for slightly derailing the topic @darjr, but for all those in the know about MtG's upcoming storylines, I've got a question: From what I understand, the next four upcoming sets will be MtG's big, multiverse-spanning metaplot. Dominaria United returns to MtG's first plane, Brothers' War is less about a specific plane and more about an "event" (that's what the set descriptions say), and we don't know what the last two sets will be. From what people are saying, a multiversal battle that requires time travel to undo some stuff might be in the works.

With that in mind, how likely do you think it is for MtG's multiverse to reimagined in a way that better meshes with D&D's planar rules? Could we get one, massive inter-game multiverse for maximum cash milking in the near future?
It would be interesting if they did a Crisis on Infinite Earths, and had some multiversal event that combined together the D&D and MTG multiverses into some new, rebooted cosmology with elements of both.

Of course, I also think that would make a lot of MTG and D&D fans rather cross, and they have to know that...

Really?! What book? RW Ajani was best Ajani.

I mean, how many would be cross, how many would be excited, and how many would neither notice nor care?

Ah, apparently it's a book that hasn't actually been published yet, but which Amazon put up preview images that were heavy on spoilers. Specifically, it's Magic: the Gathering - The Visual Guide.

You can see the (extremely terse) statements in images on this site. The original Amazon previews have been removed, to no one's surprise. There are more spoilers than just the one I gave above, though, so if you're concerned about that sort of thing, be forewarned. The Ajani stuff is the first thing, though, so you can look at that without spoilers.

Edit: Given the prominent position they're giving to both Ajani and Jaya in the art, and that Teferi is the third planeswalker in said art, I have a suspicion that time-travel or multi-timeline shenanigans are going to be involved. So there's a possibility that we get to both have our cake and eat it too.
 

They copped to it readily enough though. Just long enough to maintain plausible deniability to August 18th, perhaps?
That's been my theory as well.

Planescape setting with a tie-in Great Modron March AP (since it visits all the Outer Planes, each chapter can be a mini-setting for each plane outside of the general info in the main Planescape book). We'll have rogue modrons (perhaps still under the "glitchling" name), and hopefully also the hierarch modrons finally covered as well...

wait! Spoiler, I can’t mention what of cause that alone is a spoiler, just if you don’t want a spoiler for anything new D&D adjacent, avoid.

Vecna is mentioned in the new book!
I've started watching "Legends of the Multiverse," and he was mentioned as coming back. I wouldn't be surprised if it's marketing in action!

I think a Planescape slipcase similar to Spelljammer would make a lot of sense: a Planar bestiary, a Great Modron March "Plane of the Week" campaign, and a Planar Adventurers Guide.
