A judge project I’m a part of is looking to collect information on incidents of discrimination in the MtG community. Please pass this survey on, and take a few minutes to fill it out if you’ve ever been a part of such an incident.
Thanks. :)

Why did you depict black as a jerk and white and green as courteous in your last article? Black can be polite and well spoken when explaining it's philosophy. The way you wrote black is bad for black's PR.

markrosewater:

It was black hanging out in a room with the two colors that most hate its guts. Black wasn’t in a good mood. You’ll see Black a bit more laid back and charismatic when Black isn’t the “enemy”.

ELSPETH TIREL
Born on a plane ruined by strife and darkness, this white mage left home when her Planeswalker spark ignited—and she never returned. Elspeth specializes in community and fortification, wielding spells that build and bolster mighty armies, while protecting them from harm.
Elspeth wants nothing more than to sheathe her sword for the last time, and find a plane to call home. Violence and destruction have a tendency to follow her, and she is constantly driven to take up arms and wield her defensive magic in the service of those that need her protection.
Elspeth came to Theros from a war-ravaged plane, hoping to find the one thing that has eluded her—peace. Under the watchful protection of gods, she hoped that Theros would not be in need of guardians like her. But when she arrived, Elspeth was quickly identified as an outsider with powers and skills that further distanced her from the natives of Theros. In the wilderness between two city-states, Elspeth was attacked by a monstrous hydra, which had been responsible for the deaths of countless warriors. Elspeth engaged the hydra alone and, after a bitter fight, emerged triumphant. Afterward, she wanted nothing more than to fade into anonymity.
But on the Theros, the best laid plans of mortals often come second to those of the gods. Her feat of heroism has captured the attention of Heliod, god of the sun, who seeks to make her his champion.

"Ever since Venser died, Elspeth is my favorite Planeswalker." - Mark Rosewater, 2014

I now try to keep an emotional distance between myself and all planeswalkers.  My love is apparently deadly.
