The Sorcerer. My favorite class since the very first time I saw it in a manual, I always seen in it way more potential than what the rules (and consequently the designers) actually put into it.

Add to this that many places in Zendikar are nearly pulsating with elemental power and probably every 4e DM would think it is at least all a great rift zone connected with the Elemental Chaos.
But what happens if we directly consider it an elemental realm, the Elemental Chaos' s equivalent of an astral dominion? Well, there are PROs and CONs.
