I agree with Fairy Tale World. I don't think D&D is appropriate for Standard as Standard is too limiting of the cool things you could do. I also don't think they'll print silver-bordered cards into standard as you suggested as that's confusing.

That's too much overlap in black BW B and GB planeswalkers makes little sense
So then maybe no Garruk? Kaya and Lili will cross paths eventually so that’s a given combo. Still, the three of them represent three colors though even if it’s weighted toward black, and I could see a red and a blue walker rounding out the sets 5 cards if this is the story they wanted to tell. But I’m just guessing here

I'm leaning Fairy Take Work too. Minimal ties to the main plot outside of a Gatewatch character going on an adventure there. Just a "breather" set with lots of theme and some light story - something like Innistrad.

D&D is possible but I can't help feeling that it's really, really lame. Particularly since they'd be doing one of the more basic, generic worlds. MTG worldbuilding is so much better than D&D worldbuilding it's not really even a competition.

A D&D crossover seems like the kind of thing you'd do as a supplemental set or something instead of into standard, yeah? Like doing the Commander precons with Fighter/Thief/Wizard/Cleric/Druid themes and D&D referencing original cards, or something like Archenemy and Planechase, or a special booster product like the Conspiracy and Battlebond stuff

I want an Australian plane so we can get gnarly platypus creatures and stuff

I think you could do it as standard, but doing a supplemental set where drafts are dungeon crawling sounds so much better.

I don't think it'd be an outright D&D set, but something like D&D - adventurer world, basically, like Zendikar was at one point.
