<p>Hello Mark! It’s my birthday! May I request birthday trivia on my favorite planeswalker Sorin Markov? Thank you!</p>

I originally designed Sorin’s ultimate (his first card that controls a player’s turn) for Nicol Bolas. Development decided to change the ultimate to a riff on Bolas’s Legends card and it was cut. We later added it to Sorin.

Happy Birthday!
