This seems to have been missed during the Theros preview weeks but it seems "Huey" may likely be called Warlords of Khanar.

If true, here's hoping the returning mechanic is either Horsemanship or Flanking.

Horsemanship is silly, I hope it never returns!

I bet it's a new tabletop.


Khanar sounds mongolian though =/ horsemanship! 



That sounds more like a creature card than a set name. Weird.

Hmmm... If it is Huey and if it is mongolian inspired as the name seems to suggest It might have some thing to do with mongseng. I'm not saying that it is but the Idea popped into my head and thought it was interesting enough to share.

You are both rational and emotional. You value creation and discovery, and feel strongly about what I create. At best, you're innovative and intuitive. At worst, you're scattered and unpredictable.

I still hope it's a Western block.




Fantasy Westerns are cool.

I would be really happy for a Large fall set name that isnt just "new plane we're at"

Khanar is a place in Nepal, so East Asian inspired is possible. If it's mountainous, maybe Snow-covered lands?


But if they do call it "Warlords of Khanar", I WILL be making "Mystic Warlords of Ka'a" jokes in 2014. "I play enchanted bunny."

Although I am really liking Theros' Greco-Roman theme, I really hope MtG doesn't just become "fantasy card game which parodies non-western cultures". Give me some classic fantasy elements like Lorwyn any day but I don't need "Return to Kamigawa", thanks very much. Seems like the name of a tabletop game...



Newbs! Ask me your questions but always question my answers ;)
