Journey to Nowhere

The plan was for Nissa to get beaten and join Sorin on the Exile farm, and the two would somehow learn to cooperate. But I couldn’t think of a way in which that would happen quickly. So I made the Exile farm owner (aka “Swords to Plowshares Guy”) into a powerful character who could force their cooperation, and changed the story somewhat.

The second strip references the card “Journey to Nowhere”. Yes, I know in the game rules Sorin can’t be affected by Journey to Nowhere, but it’s a better sight gag than Oblivion Ring.

    Um, you need Oblivion Ring, not Journey to Nowhere if you want to exile a planeswalker…

    Is Nissa training Sorin what’s good to eat and what’s not in the last panel, a la Prof. M Church?

    The promo art with the implied Neesa/Sorin makes more sense now…

    (I just realized… is that farmer a retired Urza?)

    @jpmeyer: Hush, don’t ruin the otherwise brilliant pun with logic!

    Farm guy is real oldschool.

    I bet he casts summon spells.

    I LOLed as usual. You could have used the pig to insert another magic reference – like having to eat a goblin guide or something (yes, goblins are not sentient creatures for Sorin and Nissa).
