Following the release of the amazing trailer for Magic: The Gathering's next set, War of the Spark, a new epic poster for it has been surfaced online, and it reveals a lot of the key characters featured in War of the Spark's epic storyline, including Liliana, Vraska, Teferi, Dovin, and Gideon but if you take a closer look, you'll see more character names at the bottom just like how it's presented in movie posters. The names include various Planeswalkers but it also confirms the return of the Amonkhet gods. Check out the poster shared via below:

As you can see, God-Eternal Oketra, God-Eternal Bontu, God-Eternal Rhonas, and God-Eternal Kefnet will be part of War of the Spark but we haven't seen the Magic cards that represent them yet. They're zombified or "eternalized" versions of their former selves, and as fans of the lore would know, Hazoret is the only Amonkhet god who didn't die in the storyline.

The poster also reveals Kasmina as a new Planeswalker and she's one of the 36 Planeswalkers featured in the set.

I'm excited to see the cards that will represent them and to find out how the Amonkhet gods will become a part of the epic War of the Spark storyline. We know that they're a part of Bolas's army, so their cards are expected to be powerful and playable in Standard.

War of the Spark will be released on May 3, 2019. It's the third of a series of consecutive sets set in Ravnica and it will focus on the epic war between Nicol Bolas and the Gatewatch.
