I'm only now realizing that we'd never seen Elesh Norn from behind before.
We've never seen her open her mouth before either.
And thanks to both, many of us will have issues sleeping tonight. ;p
More nightmare fuel than cringe tho. ;p
Props to the camera man going across the multiverse uncompleated to show us a sneak peak of March of the Machines
They use their god-like omnipresent power to film stuff so we can like it on sites like Clip-Share. True heroes.
Dude survived a hungry Bear Grills, by now it's likely routine.
Hells, who do you think taught Randall Higgins from CoD how to do his job?
Who says they're uncompleated? This video is clearly Phyrexian propaganda.
@DC my thoughts exactly, conveniently edited to not show the part where elspeth runs her sword through norn's chest, they're not telling the full story.
I love how there’s so much hype around this angelic elspeth saving Karn and attempting to kill Elesh Norn with a glowing sword. Then it cuts to the card in question and it’s like “make a 1/1 lifelink”
yeah other than the ultimate she's super underwhelming, also, none of her abilities are in the actual cinematic, and none of her cinematic abilities are in the actual card... kind of a fail
I really wish they would use the design space of Planeswalkers that temporarily become creatures more often. Gideon had it as his thing and Sarkhan does it a little bit too but other than that not very often. Elspeth, Garruk, Sorin and numerous others really should at least occasionally take the frontlines and kick ass themselves.
@Nemo U thanks to these noob devs that don't know wut their doing nor do they care about the game just profits
The card that shows this scene is really Elspeth's Smite (followed up by Mirrodin Avenged)
Card is designed on point. Cinematic Trailer is designed for peepz who like angels with swords fighting.
BY GOD IT'S ELSPETH WITH A STEEL CHAIR
No no no, proper JR phrasing is "BAH GAWD!" 🙂
@Scott Bland BAH GAWD THATS STONE COLDS MUSIC!
SHE BROKE HIM IN HALF!!!
That planeswalker has a family!
Will someone stop the damned battle?!?!?!?!?!
Was really hoping there would be multiple glimpses of the team up characters 😢
Yeah, Marvel would give us that 😅
Yeah, this was pretty generic and empty
@Federico Ham This isn’t an upcoming Marvel comic.
Also why not show innastrad?!?! We had 2 sets of it?!. No gin gitaxius either he's just vibing out of view ig.
There is zero white aligned phyrexian near Norm. Plus where is Chandra and wrenn?!?!
Elspeth coming back from the dead as an angel: "I was called to this world of steel, and it will be my steel that answers!" *Makes a 1/1 with lifelink*
I know its supposed to be Godsend, but that sword sure has Luxior, Giada's Gift vibes to it
This is great, but I really wished we could've had a longer cinematic showing the invasion taking place on different planes. For such an important event in the magic storyline there really should be a bigger cinematic .
Buddy, I hate to tell you this....they don't give a shit about anything other than delivering the least for the most, if you catch my drift.
@BrosephStalin unfortunately yes
RIP Phyrexian Mommy. Was a great run while it lasted.
We knew the writers would make it so, Phyrexia still did amazing. Team machine killed it
@Rennac I hope not all of the compleat planeswalkers die, they could be fun villains in the future if they manage to regain bits of their consciouness(mainly jace)
It didn't last long, sadly
@Qaztim Eleven Well we know at least Ajani has gotten a cure, I think it will be interesting to see what happens next
There better be an ending/epilogue cause this is too much to miss out on
Next set is literally called
March of the machines aftermath..🤣🤣
@Zen Master to clarify, I mean a cinematic scene of the ending, if there is one, I haven't read the story yet. You know how they love cliff hangers and suspense
they ending is already out on the mtg story and its shit.
@Aiba271 The actual story ending is so vastly much more than this.
@Victor Bressler 😫😫😫
I wish they made a full series like this on MTG
It wouldn’t sell enough
Need more cinematic trailers of other planes/characters
There isn't any. Praetors are being killed by random soldiers we don't know the name of and falling buildings.
As much as I would love more detail since I love the lore of Magic, we have to remember that this is a trailer and not a movie. Putting in a lot of details would please the die hards but it would be all gibberish to the casuals. We have to remember that trailers are aimed to pull in new players.
Not saying that this is a good trailer though. War of the Spark and All will be One are the ones who I think did it right.
Angels being my favorite archetype, i got chills when Elspeth came in. Cant wait.
"i was called to this world of steel, and it will be my steel shall answers" that goes so hard
What a shame that Elesh Norn was taken down so easily... Is she really not capable of more than sending out a few random minions and shouting angrily? The cards are incredible as is the setting but they really could've slown down a bit with the story and made the baddies actually feel powerful. This feels so anticlimactic
you say that like they showed her being defeated 💀
@Prem My guy they literally showed a card with art that had Karn holding Norn's decapitated head while telling us that it was about Karn making sure Norn never returns ._.
@Prem she was defeated pretty easily in the story. Kinda sad
ya the action in this trailer is kinda sus fr fr
She was not defeated easily. Norn fought with Elspeth, she keep her busy, but it was infighting of the Phyrexian preators that was the end of the end of them.
I like how Elesh Norn moves herself at 1:02. Her motions have a regal and haughty look. Too bad the conclusion to this arc was bad.
I wouldn't say "bad" as much as rushed. They really need to scale back set releases, give the lore more time to breathe IMO.
SOOO BAAAD. PLOT HOLES GALORE
@Stephen Manuel breathe lmao. plot has been trash for years.
Just realized... Elspeth's now got the two gems from the sword on her armor. SHE is now the 'Godsend'
Form the looks of things the gems are still in the sword. I'm guessing she either had a new set made or has bound their power to the armor.
@Derek Alford she made the sword and armor from nothing, well the energy from the Sylex blast, which also was used to reshape her into an Archangel, with Serra's help.
@Keith Filibeck Isnt serra supposed to be dead, got beat decades ago
@Thoticcus Prime she was an old walker, so some fragment in the blind eternity's was probably left behind for this moment, it wasn't the full her
Kind of a short trailer gearing up to the conclusion isn't it? Feels paced so weirdly compared to something as iconic as the Liliana one
@Susan Bewley that's some copium lmao. It's literally called "official cinematic"
To be fair, the War of the Spark trailer is probably the best one they've made up to this point so its not easy to top that
@Vitaire throne of eldraine and neon dynasty were also very high effort and well done but obviously the stakes weren’t as high or dramatic. But year, the facial expressions of liliana seeing the siblins that reminded her of her and her younger brother is pretty hard to beat. That being said I still have a soft spot for the journey into nyx one.
@Susan Bewley when they were teasing they put "teaser" in the name, not "official cinematic".... I think that we won't get any more from this set :/
Magic has been going on a consistent downhill lol
Ficou otimo! Falta mais animaçao sobre o universo de Magic. Façam series.
The cinematography for Elesh Norn walking was fantastic.
Also having Karn look at Elspeth the way he did gave me rather gleeful shivers, imagining he might have seen Serra’s power within her. Beautiful though perhaps unintentional callback?
This was very well done.
It's truly fantastic how they have done Elesh Norn's movements. It's like she has a semblance of how a human should walk but it is so animated. Loving it
@Marci Kovács Almost like a Puppet you could say
I thought the exact same thing. I can't imagine there wasn't some intent there given the history.
it is not unintentional, Serra herself, or whatevers left of her, helped shape Elspeth into an Archangel.
It wasn't unintentional. When Elspeth took on the Sylex, she ended up in the space between Realms, possibly inside the powerstone that was once Serra's Realm. Serra is now an ethereal being existing in the space between the Blind Eternities, and transformed Elspeth into an angel.
This was an amazing cinematic. The raw emotion was just unreal. I have played this game since I was a child and it holds a special place in my heart. The expression on Karns face as he looks up at Elspeth... That was my soul as I watched the same heroes I cheered for years ago still fighting the good fight.
I needed this more than I knew... Rest in peace Omnath
I wish Elspeth had a “Gideon” ability of transforming to an angel/archangel.
The voice actor for Elsh Norn is so good at capturing her dominance and elegance in her performance! What a treat to be able to enjoy such amazing cinematic trailers!!!
Borg Queen vibes.
AI generated comment
Well, strictly speaking neither the Phyrexians nor the Borg feature any AI.
@Verily McArthur Haibo, coz I like a trailer its now an AI generated comment. 🥱According to you people can't like things unless they're not human, lol
@Zamangwane Zikhali Ill only believe you're a human if you admit to wanting to kiss Elesh Norn
"I was called to this world of steel, and it will be my steel that answers," is a good line that I wish appeared in the story.
At least it is in the cards
@Gulgulp Oh cool, which card is it on?
@Going Jome soul parry
Elspeth's face when she first appears:
"Better luck next time, buddy"
I started playing MtG when «New Phyrexia» came out. The previous set was like coming home. Now it feels like my homeplane is destroyed
And yes, I know it's a very strange choice of homeplane. But I like it
Same here, I started in scars block too, love myrs and the battle cry stuff, hero of bladehold and accorder paladin ♥️
And I love the art for planes in that set, the razor grass planes and such
"Aw, my house burned down." Was more or less my reaction.
on the contrary i started playing competitively when scars of mirrodin came out. so elspeth getting it done, to me feels like we did it mirrodin will be restored.
It is genuinely upsetting MTG has not had a tv show or movie seeing how beautiful this cinematic is and the War of the Spark one too.
I love Elspeth's little smirk when she kills that phyrexian, it just says "sure lady, but I don't think you'll be surviving this"
The Phyrexians and the voice of Elesh Norn reminded me of the Zerg and the Queen of Blades
En ese momento Elesh Norn sintió el verdadero terror!
You'd think with such a badass trailer Elspeth would be a good planeswalker. You'd think wrong
It was a shame the official trailer didn't show Elesh Norn throwing random objects at Elspeth like she did in the full story.
I loved it when she broke off vorinclex's horn to throw. 😂
elesh norn be like SNAP and then vorinclex went like ow ow ow
ok this is amazing but can we get like, a show or movies? the scope of Magics story is so insane, I do wish sometimes the media would fit that scope. i want to see the phrexians marching across the multiverse!
Eu adorei ver a Elspeth viva . Eu achei que era o fim dela dessa vez .
Animação épica! Cadê um anime, seriado ou qualquer coisa.
In case you're wondering, that sword is gonna go right where it looks like!
Karn: "Chandra, what are they firing at?"
Chandra: "Something just entered Phyrexia's atmosphere!"
*Elspeth arrives in glowing badass form*
Maravilha de trailer... esperando daqui a pouco relatos da coleção
can they just make a tv show, the graphics look so good
Esse trailer sim ficou louco demais!
In terms of gameplay, the new card for Elspeth may indicate that there will be new updates for soldier tribal decks, that use white mana, and updates to aggro decks, including Mono White Aggro, provided of the ultimate ability. However, this is just only with the available cards, and results may change.
Madre mía, necesito esa Elspeth YA 👼🏼🗡️
This is a way better way to potrait Elesh and Elspeth meeting. Norn is so cool walking and sending the minions to fight instead of throwing things and pieces of preators at her.
A piece of Vorinclex beats any other conceivable projectile, didn't you know?
@ToonLinksDair She could have at least used a piece of Urabrask or Sheoldred's head. Phyrexians used to like to recycle.
It’s to show her breaking down. Everything she does is false. When Elspeth comes along and throws a wrench in her plans she is no longer able to put up the calm facade.
She didn’t want all to be one, she wanted all to be her.
@Twingemios I understand and if we consider that Elspeth appearing was her nightmare since Ashiok did what he did, it has even more sense.
But she wasn't supposed to! She was the embodiment of white mana and of the will of Phyrexia and that's why I loved her. She just wanted a world of peace where everyone would be the same and that was scary and relatable. Why she had to turn into a crybaby? Why she had to turn into a classic evil character instead of a cool original one? Why an entire plane (or at least 3/5) should follow her? No one in New Phyrexia was enough smart to understand it? Sheoldred did it.
Also, I don't think that shaping the universe around yourself is really what a white mana creature would like to do!
I really wanted to see Eldrazi come back and fight the Phyrexians!
I like Elspeth's Swordspear that she had on Theros than her current sword design, and while the sword is more iconic for her, the Swordspear would be able to take advantage of her new wings more.
Never played this game.
I just come for some awesome cinematic experience.
Keep it up!
It's trailers like this that make me want a show or movie.
This is why I love Wizards of the Coast. The official cinematic goes against the official lore. What a great company.
@Elite DarkChild In the video you can see jin gitaxias about to kill Karn under Elesh norns command and elspeth saves him.
In the lore, many more people are there: Nissa, Chandra, Wren, Koth, Melira, A group of mirrodin soliders, and Karn is on a floating table. Realmbreaker should also be in-view.
Great company? Who? Certainly not Wizards or hasbro
@Tim Porter Ikr, thought the same thing, they been milking consumers for the past few years now
My guess: The lore-version was too expensive to animate (Phyrexia and a whole battle in the background) and/or they didn't write the lore yet (animation takes a lot of time).
Damn the music track on this one is fantastic. Someone needs to make an audio rip
Also how do the Phyrexians look so goofy on the card arts but manage to look so menacing in the cinematic trailer? Has card art quality gotten that bad?
Holy molly, this trailer is so epic ! Could we just have a MTG movie this good with this storyline pls ?
Though Elesh Norn is super badass, Elspeth becoming an Archangel is absolutely magnificent !
The little hero sting from back in the Theros trailers is such a lovely touch.
As much as I appreciate the artists, I have to say, direction-wise it is incredible how much style and soul has been lost. That grit is nowhere to be found.
With all the well animated commercials Wizards has made at this point they could have just created one awesome film.
The main question is: will there be less than 25 different versions of Elspeth in the set?
This cinematics make me want a Magic’s animation serie! ❤😊
I think it's time we get a mtg movie in theaters
Took me a bit, but Elesh Norn reminds me so much of the Arch-Vile's from the Doom games in her design.
Born with wings of light and a sword of faith, this heavenly incarnation embodies both fury and purity
I love collecting angels, gonna add this one!
That Elspeth is going straight into my Adeline deck for sure
This feels like a scene out of a movie or show...one that I would absolute watch.
When are we getting a tv series or movie with these?
Elspeth is absolute coolest planeswalker now!
Come on. Please make full movies of these. It's so good.
I wish there was a Magic animated series like Arcane
Wizard debería ver que hay mucha decepción en darle un final tan malo para los villanos más iconicos de este juego podrían averiguar creado más contenido con los phyrexianos además de que es un villano excelente y teniendo un universo de héroes deciden mantener los mismos decepción 😒😒😒😒
Really hard not to see the Lilith and Tyreal comparison but I'm not complaining the Diablo cinematics are sweet.
We need a series or movies of Magic the Gathering
Praetors rise and fall but Phyrexia is forever.
I wouldn't mind living with the higher MtG product costs if they would make an animated series for each set. That would be awesome. I don't know what the hell Wizards is waiting for.
I stant chills!!!!! Following the story and what not, this was more than I could have hoped for from MTG. Elspeth looked amazing. And Karn!!!! Yes!!!! I. Rooting for the Mirren Resistance and our heroes. All will NOT be One
wow this looks really cool I hope the ending isn't super anticlimactic
It turned Elesh Norn into a card with no effort, must be powerful.
We need more of this!! Don’t be lazy!!
Stuff like this makes me wish we can see a cinematic of Ursa and the Coalition vs Yawgmoth's Phyrexia, iykyk
It is a tragedy that this isn't a trailer for a movie... This magic set would be such a cool movie.
With Phyrexia winning, because we've got enough movies where the good guys win.
Hope that's not the end of Phyrexia. We still to learn where Jace has left - maybe to visit and compleat one particular elder dragon and ex-planeswalker, hmm?
Phyrexians remind me so much of the element corruption from ARK but still are different in ways as well
We need the Netflix show now!
I really wana see the other praetors in this level of cinematic.
Magic the gathering was one of those card games i really wanted right after it realeased however i hade very little of it and couldnt afford the rest at the time or much at that time, it was the 90s i was very young and card shops where still here and there, unfortunately those stores directly for card shops have mainly closed down back then and now i think in terms of now, yeah, i was the guy who could be trusted by all his friends to go to a store and come back with exactly what my friends wanted and give it back to them exactly how my friends wanted it, then it became a day where i graduated and the ones that showed up after that, i showered them with cards from yu-gi-oh and pokemon that i saved up for, it was a good day, and those cost less even now, its how i learned to not be selfish, worth it. but yeah magics next 😂😇
"We Machine Shall Rise, To make a Perfect world."
Kinda weird to release the trailer after the entire story is already live lol. Trailer still pretty good though.
Yeah, and it has major inconsistencies compared to the story, too.
To be fair, maybe it's good that the trailer doesn't spoil the whole story. It's a trailer. It should generate hype.
@stalemittens My point is that releasing it now, after the whole story is finished, is silly, since it would’ve worked much better to build hype without us knowing what was going to happen.
@Ascendant Fiction Well by releasing the trailer it already spoils that Espeth is going to be an Angel.
Also the trailer is for the set, not the story. All wizards cares about is if the trailer makes people buy cards and I can't really blame them for that.
1. A casual who has no idea about MTG - Wow killer robots marching in portals. Just like Terminator. Is that a golem?…..Is he losing?… A female
cyborg?……Looks like she is the bad guy. Wow an Angel…. One angel taking on an army of robots? Oww so it is a card game.
2. MTG player who does not follow the lore - So those gotta be the Phyrexians invading different planes. Its Karn. He is losing to Elesh Norn. Is that….. Elspeth??? She has wings. Is she an Angel??? Wow she is an Angel!! I can’t wait wait to make a new Mono white deck. Also will test this with my Soldiers deck.
3. Die hard MTG fan who wholeheartedly read the lore - this trailer missed out on a lot. Where is Wrenn, Chandra, Melira, Koth and the other Mirrans? Nissa should also be there. That random Phyrexian minion should have been Jin-Gitaxias. And where the hell are the other planes? I wish there was more Innistrad, Zendikar, Ravnica even though we have already been through those planes multiple times. New Capenna is important to the story. I wish I have seen the team-ups of the likes of Thalia and the Gitrog Monster, Drana and Linvala and the others. I could still go on but I’ll end it here.
I was expecting all the giant spines to move and attack Elspeth, then seeing Elspeth either chop them down or blow them away.
These Tendrins (and the soldiers on them) look so miniscule - i had expected MASSIVE arms reaching into other planes, gripping into the ground and opening Highway-sized tunnels to new Phyrexia with massive formations of soldiers walking through in unison
I don't know how I feel about finally seeing the back of Elesh Norns head
Ashiok is somewhere around looking at Elesh Norn like "I told you."
Elesh Norn with the Frieza pose at 1:39👌
Elesh Norn is out here looking like a l o n g girl. I'm here for it
That was way too short for what is happening at the moment. Team ups of Planeswalkers and other famous characters would have been nice
Mark my words this is the best Elspeth planeswalker in quite some time. Cant wait to use her in modern.
Not pictured: the entire rest of the crew getting their buts kicked trying to get Wrenn to the tree
NGL I would enjoy the human chain passing Wrenn around as the actual trailer. xD
ok for real why not turn this into a movie or series?? for reaL?! I would binge watch this nonstop
I wish you guys could outsource it with riot and do an amazing cinematic =(
Really hope this set doesn't feel like I'm movies when they show the world being destroyed by a massive tsunami, and to show this, they have a shot of a wave hitting the statue of liberty, the eifel tower, the leaning tower of piza, etc.
Based on the Etali spoilers and the planes we see here... i think it's gone be like this...
I mean, while that always sucks as an element of movies based on Earth, in order to establish planar stakes in MTG you sort of have to show the major planes getting hit. Those are the places where we know the people who live there, and where we've seen their stories and lives play out before us. As far as narrative gut punches go, there are only a few better than "this once regal and powerful embodiment of nature's terror and beauty has now become just a mechanical puppet, another cog slaving away in the Phyrexian machine".
Elesh Norn must have some serious bad breath if Elspeth has to shake it off from that distance.
It's cool, but for the sheer build up to this event, I feel like we need about six more two minute videos to do it proper justice.
Elesh Norn Will dominate the multiverse, and all will be on- OH MY GOD IT’S ELSPETH WITH A STEEL CHAIR
Awesome!!!! Well I’m sold and I’m going to get the cards because one, One of the cards is over $2500. And second these packs look awesome to play.
we dont want trailers, we want a full series
