I'm really curious how they're going to do Gods.  Storywise, I thought they'd be planeswalkers that were somehow unaffected by the Mending, but somehow bound to the plane.

Is it possible City will be a new land sub type?

From the twitter comments on what they said, it sounds like they will be Enchantments. Possibly bringing back the idea of the world enchantment so that you can only like have one "God" enchantment in play at a time (on each side to mirror the M14 changes). The reason Wizards got rid of World enchantments I imagine was similar to the reason they made the M14 changes, so this could be their "fix" to world enchantments.
Reminds me of Vela the Night-Clad with these God arts.
I hope this will be the actual Elspeth art. I like it. Although it's kinda unpractical armor she wears there.
And I'm somehow happy that they apparently didn't went the easy path and made all gods just plain big avatar creatures.

Ditch the armor. Hello, toga.
the lighting seems to be mostly from the left
Is that color on the buildings in those cities? They did their research! :D

Probably not, they tried to do something like that in the first Ravnica, RTR probably would've been the time to revisit it, plus if they're already doing something wacky with gods, one would think they'd try to avoid introducing too many new kinds of cards at once.

Also Water Wurm: Revenge of the Homarids?

Funny story: InQuest Magazine (I think it was InQuest) had an oversized Chaos Orb which I totally rooked someone into allowing into a (non-sanctioned) game. I had a proxy card that was a Mountain with "Chaos Orb" written on it. When I played it, my opponent cried foul: Him: "WTF? a Proxy? no-one said anything about Proxies. Do you even own an actual Chaos Orb?" Me: "Yes, but I thought it would be better to use a Proxy." Him: "No way. If you're going to put a Chaos Orb in your deck you have to use your actual Chaos Orb." Me: "*Sigh*. Okay." I pulled out this huge Chaos Orb and placed it on the table. He tried to cry foul again but everyone else said he insisted I use my actual Chaos Orb and that was my actual Chaos Orb. I used it, flipped it and wiped most of his board. Unsurprisingly, that only worked once and only because everyone present thought it was hilarious.

Hi guys! So, I'm a sort of returning player to Magic. I say sort of because as a child I had two main TCG's I liked. Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokemon. Some of my friends branched off in to Magic, and I bought two pre-made decks just to kind of fit in. Like I said, Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon were what I really knew how to play. I have a extensive knowledge of deck building in those two TCG's. However, as far as Magic is concerned, I only ever used those two pre made decks. I know how the game is played, and I know general things, but now I want to get in the game for real. I want to begin playing it as a regular. My question is, are all cards ever released from the time of the inception of this game until present day fair game in a deck? Or are there special rules? Are some cards forbidden or restricted? Thanks guys, and I will gladly accept ANY help lol.
I have the same problem with women.

HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THE BEAR PRODUCING WORDS OF WILDING?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!
That's what RPJesus tends to do. That's why I don't think he's a real person, but some Magic Card Archive Server sort of machine, that is programmed to react to other posters' comments with obscure cards that do in fact exist, but somehow missed by even the most experienced Magic players. And then come up with strange combos with said cards. All of that is impossible for a normal human to do given the amount of time he does it and how often he does it. He/It got me with Light of Sanction, which prompted me to go to RQ&A to try and find if it was even possible to do combat damage to a creature I control (in light that Mark of Asylum exists).

Blue players get all the overpowerered cards like JTMS. I think it's time that wizards gave something to people who remember what magic is really about: creatures.
Initially yes, Wizards was married to blue. However, about a decade ago they had a nasty divorce, and a few years after that they began courting the attention of Green. Then in Worldwake they had a nasty affair with their ex, but as of Innistrad, things seem to have gotten back on track, and Wizards has even proposed.

Ditch the armor. Hello, toga.

It looks a lot like her other armors, and the piece as a whole is pretty amazing.

So, the nonbasic lands for Theros are going to be the cities? Makes sense to me.

Unsure how I like them adding ANOTHER different card frame design. Unless these things are functionally special (which I highly doubt) then I don't see a reason to do it.

Also, what is up with Elspeth's boot things? They look like armor for hippies.

I know it's not always right to base stuff off of the color on the arts, but the vibe I'm getting from the three cities shown here are G/U, R/W, and U/R - all enemy colors. Enemy colored duals first?
I want a card with the art of a giant God fist punching the battlefield killing all the creatures.

Water wurm = Wurmcoil Engine......... with Blue added to "balance" it.


I like Elspeth's art as well, it looks like she wants to lead me somewhere.


Which based on that Hydra art, would be a good idea most likely, seeing she can fight a Hydra.

The bottom city doesn't look UR to me at all.  UW was the vibe I got.  Agree on the other two though.

I couldn't agree with this more.

CURRENT EDH DECKS: Sek'kuar | Kraj | Teysa | Wort | Purphoros | Varolz | Reaper King | Rakdos | Isperia | Ultimus | Iroas | Macar | Roon | Marath | Kruphix | Karametra | Marchesa

could be U/W but I was looking at how it's got a big honkin' mountain in the art
those cities, if lands, look mono color to me
green red blue

also elspeth's left leg looks kinda wonky

I'm inclined to agree with this.  I think we'll get basic lands with a panorama when placed next to each other.  Like New Phyrexia had.

these won't be basic lands

these are the three major cities of Theros with everything else around them being dangerous territory filled with horrible monsters 
And I thought the artwork couldn't get any better!

Those God card frames would look really good in foil.

Although I'm still wondering why there isn't any YGO reference yet. XD

Greek God cards are nothing like Egyptian ones. This is completely original.
Updated OP with another few preview images including the 4th God which means the Red God is the only one still to be revealed.
The Merfolk picture strikes me very much as a PWer, she's consistent with the "different" kind of art PWers have.

I think the big question here is "Will the God cards feed the Goyf?"
It's confirmed that people who wanted more Minotaurs will receive more Minotaurs.  I like the GIANT Gods, Creatures or whatever is in this art.  The Merfolk Hero also looks very bad ass and if it's not a Planeswalker I hope it's at least something playable.
the gods should be planeswalkers

anyway

it's Demeter's daughter Persephone who has died

would you like to join her ?
This artwork is phenomenal!

As for speculation, I get the feeling that the lands are indeed either mono-color, or perhaps have some way of tapping for any color.  Or maybe even have a link to the God cards themselves.

Fingers crossed for a merfolk planeswalker!
