Modern Masters 2015: My Pack, Your Pick #1

Ever played "My Pack, Your Pick?" If not, here is how it's played:

You look at every card in my booster pack. We're opening Modern Masters 2015. So you look at all the cards, and you name your top three picks if you were drafting this pack. What has potential? Are you drafting for money? That's what you're here to answer. Go ahead and watch the video. It explains the rules too. I think... It's been a while since I filmed it. Below the video are all the cards (if you don't care to watch the video, of course).

Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh

Of the planeswalkers in Magic Origins, we know the least about Chandra's home plane. Jace may not remember his past, but we know he came from Vryn. We know about Vryn because we visited it in Planechase 2012. What we don't really know about is Chandra's home plane of Kaladesh.


Black Magic and Lorwyn Elves

Nissa, the new green walker since Garruk went full Green/Black hails from Zendikar. You know, the place with full art lands, all kinds of land interaction such as Landfall, and the enemy fetchlands? Well, on her first planeswalking adventure, she found herself on Lorwyn...


Bant

So you know Gideon Jura? Well, he also goes by the name "Champion of Justice."

Gideon Jura  Gideon, Champion of Justice

What you may not know is he comes from Theros. You know, the place currently in Standard with the vindictive god Heliod who asks for help and gets mad when you help him? Yeah, that place...


From Dominaria to Innistrad

We know the gist of Liliana's story. She is a pre-Mending planeswalker who is obsessed with youth and beauty. She'll do anything to keep the immortality stripped from her by the Mending, which repaired the Multiverse during the Time Spiral block.

So where did she come from? New players don't know much about Dominaria, but they are much more likely to recognize the name "Innistrad." Join me on a journey through the Multiverse!


The Mage of Vryn

Last week, the Mothership released the five planeswalkers we'll get to see in Magic Origins this summer. The list is nothing new. We'll see Gideon, Jace, Liliana, Chandra, and Nissa, all of whom have participated in at least one core set. What we got this time was a list of what their home plane is and where they first planeswalked. The list has been reproduced below:
