How will Shadows Over Innistrad appease the Tumblr crowd?

Actual furries that jerk off the werekin or whatever-the-fuck they are now. Gay angels. Sorin will put off some homo smoldering vibes when he vampires a male minor character.
I kind of wish people could just ignore it and not give wotc a fucking parade every single time the do something not-mainstream. It doesn't really effect the game mechanically so it's whatever.
It's not that it's hard to believe, people just care too much. What gender were the things from Hellraiser? Pretty clear inspiration there, but no one gives a shit about the hellraiser goons.
>Confirmed for not actually playing any Innistrad.
They're all cannibal werewolves, not heroes, so they don't count.
And they'll still say it's unrealistic for any fantasy setting to lack colored people because it's fantasy, it doesn't need to reflect reality.
Same way as Innistrad. Women in positions of power.
I still say Ashiok was Braids and you can't stop me.
Any small or isolated area with the same climate. Racial homogeneity still is the norm in most places.
In one region. Highly.
Shit, there are places where you will still never find a black guy.
There are also places you'll never find a white bitch.
Especially in regards to a fantasy time period, seeing literally every race ain't gonna happen.
Alesha, she who smiles at Death.
Speaking as someone living in a modern United States metro with a population of about 850,000 people, I only met one black person growing up. Most people were Japs or whites.
Would you expect black people in 18th-century Germany to be a noticeable minority of the population, or would you expect rare exceptions that probably won't show up in card art except as nameless background characters? Or would you expect those exceptions to be so exceptional that they are, by default, heroes of one sort or another?
Yeah. Girl in Mardu Runemark's art probably isn't her, though. No way a trap without access to hormones could get those tits.
It's fantasy. It doesn't have to reflect the real world. Pretty much any level of racial diversity or homogeny can work.
>She's clan leader of the Mardu and deserves respect as much as Zurgo or Surrak.
So none then?
Post time fuckery the originals were cleansed from history and the present ones are pretty much nobodies outside of Narset.
And those SJWs would still complain that because it's fantasy it MUST reflect our real world values of diversity, because it would take conscious decisions to not do so and thus be inherently racist if it doesn't.
>Fight for muh rights, practical armor
In literally what sense are these (a) for the tumblr crowd and (b) a bad thing?
Is this for true? I buy it but I'm not sure why she would be that bad aside from the fact that she's incredibly hateful
Did you just say that Surrak is a nobody? When he has the respect of his dragonlord and is pretty much second in command?
And do I need to get started on Sidisi? Really it's only Zurgo and Anafenza don't matter, and Anafenza almost started a rebellion by dying.
>In charge of feeding his overweight boss, is unplayable
>Is a puppet for his even more overweight, greedy boss, is also unplayable
>Is literally autistic, unplayable
All the Khans that aren't Anafenza or Zurgo in the post-Sarkhan timeline are trash.
Also, how has nobody mentioned that Narset is autistic yet?
>Also, how has nobody mentioned that Narset is autistic yet?
She's actually not specifically autistic. She's just not ~normal~. An autistic person was the first one to ask, but subsequent comments by Wizards employees have also mentioned Attention Deficit.
Vampires will be slutshamed to death, humans have to check their mirror privilege, werewolves are now nonviolent and yiffing in peace with furry humans, zombies have to be 50/50 spread of men and women but no poc because dead poc is racist and avacyn has incestuous lesbian relationships with her sisters.
>no lesbians yet
WotC, do you know what year it is?
>Coward negro surrendered his clan and became Dromoka's bitch.
>Shu Yun became an icycle.
>Tasigur became a necklace.
>Kolaghan ate the trap.
>Yasova continued being mystical mountain shaman because all Atarka wants is to eat big meals.
>emrakul is female
>this german card claims it's a guy
No feminists allowed in based naziland
Only willing werewolves become wulfin. And Avacyn still didn't have the power to stop lycanthropes from turning because that's a function of Innistrad itself, tied into the moon which is a source of wild magic untouched by Sorin.
>zombies have to be 50/50 spread of men and women but no poc
Oh so you're saying blacks and Latinos aren't good enough to be made into zombies?
Check your undeath privilege~
You don't want this to be canon, anon?
>Battle for Zendikar: muh fight for muh rights, muh practical armor
Don't you realize how fucking dumb you sound when you try to make it seem BfZ caters the "the Tumblr crows" at all? That you're stretching things beyond what's retarded?
Ancient Greece had lots of connections with middle east cultures and even Nubians and the like from north Africa. Add to that the fact that Theros is an FICTIONAL FANTASY SETTING and your argument is completely fucking retarded.
>avacyn has incestuous lesbian relationships with her sisters
I just came here to post the mandatory image, but this? This bit I would be okay with.
Anon-kun. Don't you get it? As long as there is something that doesn't appease to my /pol/-ite sensibilities is obviously simply appeasing to the SJW menace that is somehow both incompetent and omnipresent.
Are people really still whining about blacks appearing in Theros? It's a whole plane, not one small section if our Earth. If humans on Theros are anything like humans on Earth they will be adapted to their surroundings, which means in some regions people will have darker pigmentation than in others.
It's not like the RL Greeks never came into contact with dark skinned people.
Just admit that you agree with people who you typically don't like. You pretentious asshole.
Fa/tg/uys are just uncomfortable seeing anyone other than white people. Have some black people in your setting, even if the majority is still white? Clearly it's the "SJW agenda" rather than simple worldbuilding.
Same kinds of people who think the moment you introduce gunpowder to a setting, everyone will be wielding M16s and no other weapons will matter.
Liliana will be a strong independant woman, and kill the patriarchy abomination known as
What? Kolaghan didn't eat her, she realized that kolaghans brood just wanted the Mardu to follow them. Alesha threw her banners in the dirt and followed them. Then the Mardu became retarded cannibals.
They can't wrap their heads around the idea that a plane could be large enough to encompass an area the size of the entire Mediterranean
Planes have to be small places with only white people. I bet they wouldn't bat an eye if vikings showed up in Theros.
I have no issues with anything they have done, the only really annyoing thing is how you can not call man lands, man lands anymore but creature lands.
The Man in manland is surely keeping the females away from FNM, not the hordes of unwashed apes, sure thing guys ;^)
To be fair, "the plane is just one big city" is one of the most popular planes of all time. Unless we're talking a planet-sized Fantasy Coruscant, which wouldn't make sense in the slightest, there's a good reason people keep thinking planes are unrealistically small if one of the most popular planes is a tiny-ass nothing.
Still, getting bent out of shape because wizards had the nerve to include black people and characters that are not straight in a setting is pretty ridiculous. It's like they're all so insecure that seeing someone different than them makes them feel inferior.
i'd want this, only because lilly is best girl and a top tier waifu
garruk doesn't necessarily have to die though
Ravnica is massive though. Coruscant is an apt comparison. It's a city the size of Earth that goes as far down as it does up.
Most planes are basically planet sized. Even Innistrad is - we just haven't seen beyond the Nephalian coast. There are rumours of weretigers an shit in the wider world.
>muh fight for muh rights, muh practical armor
What are you even talking about? Are you upset that you can't see Drana's tits in the new card art??
>implying OP isn't a Lotleth Troll
>forgetting that angel blood is an incredibly rare commodity for making skaabs and other weird shit
>werewolves being dead ain't set in stone
>why did you even like that guy when Withengar is about?
I refuse to give up hope until the set shows up. They can't fuck it up too bad, right?
FUCK OFF GUYS I WANT TO BELIEVE
I liked Zendikar, I can only pray they up the power levels from 'unplayable' to at least 'meh'.
