I actually love this idea. Here's hoping for... T. Umezawa III.Quote from RedGauntlet »The Weatherlight crew need a descendant of the Umezawa clan to hellp them
There is plenty of room for coincidence in Magic Art. Root Out prominently features what appears to be the Phyrexian symbol, Phi. I erroneously though there would be Ashiok involvement in Amonkhet. Learning to judge what might or might not be relevant is what makes the difference. My problem with Ixalan's Binding is that there weren't any other in-set clues, really. I was all on board when they revealed the Sphinx art, though.Quote from Ertai Planeswalker »Also, symbolism is strong in Magic art. If you only look at the visual clues that were depicted on Ixalan cards about the whole Ugin/Azor involvement and how Jay13x pieced almost the whole story together based on a few art clues... details like this matter. There is no such thing as coincidence in magic art.
Related, for Dominaria, some cool flavor notes. Chandra is wearing Jaya's Goggles in her planeswalker deck art, and Teferi's (now whole) staff has fabric like Jaya's robes on it. We're likely going to see something happen to her in this set.
Also, I really like the New Order of Serra/New Benalia mash up in the stained glass/floating city people.
