(Hello everyone, I hope there's anyone left from old times that remembers me... my love for Ravnica is actually pulling me back here :p)

So, where's Szadek? The original block's storyline left the cliffhanger that Szadek was now a spirit in control of the new ghost district (which may have been his plan all along), but I've yet to see a single mention of his whereabouts.

Personally, I hope he's still pulling the strings of House Dimir, and Lazav's just his puppet.

See ya!
Wizards isn't going to show their whole hand before the set comes out.

Some details are going to be kept a secret until later, and we still have two more sets of plot to work with.
Szadek is John Galt.

"The fuel on which science runs is ignorance. Science is like a hungry furnace that must be fed logs from the forests of ignorance that surround us. In the process, the clearing we call knowledge expands, but the more it expands, the longer its perimeter and the more ignorance comes into view." -Matt Ridley, Genome

I thought Szadek was in Agyrem, but Agrus Kos was running it. All the run-up stuff has so far said that since the mending no-one knows where Agyrem has gone. Whether that means it's Sir Not-Appearing-In-This-Block, or just being kept back for a big reveal, who knows?
It's not gonna be much of a reveal when everyone's expecting it... <_< >_>
Personally, I think Szadek has been flagged as "dead" by the minds in creative, and we know the Wizards policy on resurrection.

Plus, a lack of Szadek/Bolas would be the real shocker at this stage


... and I still think the new Dimir guildmaster is secretly Ravel Puzzlewell

Didn't know that part, then new main issue is why/where Agyrem went to :p
Agyrem was seperated from Ravnica during the mending.
… and then, the squirrels came.

I belive that's correct.
Thank you Blitzschnell for the awesome banner!
Personally, I doubt Szadek, or even House Dimir period, will play a major role in the Return to Ravnica set. Remember how in the first Ravnica block they introduced the guilds more or less 4-3-3 by set? Well, if you look at the spoiled cards so far and the five mechanics reveals, it seems this time they're focusing on five of them, Selesnya, Azorious, Izzet, Golgari and Rakdos. Now, maybe the others haven't been spoiled yet, but I suspect we'll get the other five houses in Gatecrash.

However, that certainly doesn't mean they can't bleed storyline into the other five. And personally, I hope they do, as my two favorite guilds (first Dimir, then Simic) are yet to come. At least I still have Izzet and Golgari to fall back on.

The only Dimir reference we have is the flavor text on the new Mana Fixer/Rock.

 Dimir mages put the lanterns to good use, creating shapeshifters and sleeper agents from mana foreign to them.

Szadek is John Galt.

Congratulations, they have activated your trap card!
Szadek's spirit and Kos's spirit are both in Agyrem, which now exists in planar space distinct from that of Ravnica. That's as much as we've established at this point.

Also, welcome back Japoniano! Hope the earthquake didn't affect you too much.

Well, if nothing else, Brady remembers you apparently!

I remember you also, Japoniano. Good to see you back.

I'm not hoping for a return of Szadek to this storyline, necessarily, but I would love to see Szadek and Kos go toe to toe in modern Agyrem again. I kind of like the idea of them being eternal ghost foes. There's something wonderfully Noir about that idea--it just feels very Ravnican to me.

This.

I'm against Sza'dek coming back mostly because he already got a chance to be the man behind the conspiracy, let someone else have a shot at it!

Now, if he is behind some sinister plot again, and they manage to make me believe it, more power to them; but by default, I'd like something new.

The Ravnican equivalent of Moriarty and Holmes going toe to toe in the spirit world?
I could dig it.
Everyone who believes that Szadek is not the evil mastermind behind everything, already fell in Szadek's trap. Puts on tin-foil hat.

Szadek's spirit and Kos's spirit are both in Agyrem, which now exists in planar space distinct from that of Ravnica. That's as much as we've established at this point.

Thank you for the clarification and personalized reply :p (I promise not to rant to much for now).

I saw the CNN news about the earthquake, and they seemed exagerated, as if the whole country was made of adobe houses... jeez... some binders fell in my office, and there were cracks on the building's plaster, but that's it.

Nice to see you too! Have fun!
