New Green 'Walker?

Well I for one am immediately in love with Vivien('s visual design).

Why do green Walkers habitually have eyes that are so much creepier than everyone else?

I'm all for this character, but I'm getting a distinct Saheeli/Narset/Huatli vibe off her.

She hasn't yet but it seems to be in her power set.

EDIT: I hope it becomes a story point later. That she can change the past because her story magic makes her words reality, but she doesn't do it because she feels that altering history by telling it untruly would be to dishonorable to consider. And everyone around her is like "But you can retroactively save Zendikar/Innistrad/Amomkhet/Chandra's Dad/Gideon's friends/Liliana's brother/etc." and she's all ".....no. That's not how we tell the story of the Multiverse."

Hrm... I've tried taking the survey a few times, but it's kinda janky.

Yeah, some of the pages take forever to load correctly. I sat through it just to see what fun bits I could pilfer to share here.

Mostly I just wanted to say 'screw Nissa' as much as I could.
...Probably would have had some harsh words for Sarkhan as well.

Did you make it to the section where they ask for your design descriptions for any 'Walker that you'd like to see that doesn't exist yet. Basically a "Give us your fan 'Walkers!" section that they can compile and sift and maybe see what the fanbase is looking for.

I asked them to add in a Nezumi Ninja 'Walker just because I want to see more non-human 'Walkers and I want Kamigawa to get more representation.

No, the survey quit working at the "name these walkers" submit screen.
Which is as far as I got after 3 tries.

Ah, after that it plays a bit of a matching game where you select three character traits like "Powerful, Intelligent, Frightening, etc." from a list of like twenty traits for each of the characters you were able to name. Then it asks about what sort of powers you think a random sample of them should have. After that it shows off those in-depth power-set descriptions for many of the 'Walkers. I saved the ones that had new or interesting information here. Then it asks you something about how you feel about a sampling of those 'Walkers. Finally, it asks you to give them some info on what sort of 'Walkers you'd like to see in the future.

EDIT: Oh and there's a section where it asks you to frame what you like about their art.

There's a distinct short list that I want Fiers as a dwarven planeswalker.
But it's really not worth it to try to deal with the survey again. It crashed my browser last time, so eh...

I tried taking the survey about four or five times both on my phone and my laptop, but I didn't get past the 'select your country' part, and now it says it's been temporarily shut down for maintenance. Looks like they're trying to fix it. I love taking Magic surveys, especially if they ask for feedback on flavour.

You're a saint! A nezumi planeswalker from Kamigawa is exactly what I would have asked for as well.

I really never cared for the Nezumi, but I already have Tamiyo, so I'd probably leave Kamigawa alone anyway.
I think I'd love a Saprazzan merfolk walker though.

The nezumi are my favourite black race (I mean actual 'race', not vampires or other undead stuff) and I love Kamigawa, so...

Why a Saprazzan of all things, though?

Because they were pirates and merchants and I loved both their city and their attitude.

Vodalia was too militant, Zendikari and Ixalani are too indigenous and nomadic, the Merrow were... well, from Lorwyn, and the Tritons were nothing culturally.

The only merfolk with a defined civilization were the Vodalians and Saprazzans.

Garruk is a 7 foot tall woodsman hunter type dude, vivien looks like a very generic hunter type lady

Tell them to make a really small walker. Give me a fairy or something. We have a goblin (though not in the main cast) and I don't want to go any bigger than that.
