Maybe it's just me, but I think the planeswalker achievement list is getting a little crowded. It seemed fine at first but now I'd almost prefer a single achievement per planeswalker which advances each time you use an ultimate.

I think it's mostly a matter of opinion. Personally I like the unique achievements per ultimate, each with its own flavor :)

Please feel free to provide ideas for the WAR planeswalker and alternate win condition achievement texts :) This time we have a lot of planeswalkers, but most of them don't really have ultimates, so I think we should limit ourselves to the standard Mythic Rare planeswalkers with identifiable ultimate abilities. Opinions are welcome on this point.

Gideon Blackblade
Gideon's Righteous Strike
"Blackblade cleaving black heart!"

Liliana, Dreadhorde General
Liliana's Utter Obliteration
"The choice is yours."

Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God
Bolas's Flawless Victory
"Who's left to oppose me?"

Gideon, the Oathsworn
Gideon's Ultimate Sacrifice
"Follow me to oblivion."

Jace, Arcane Strategist
Jace's Secret Passage
"Don't worry. I know the way through these minds."

Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge
Tezzeret's Mass Transit
"Just for today, everyone rides free."

As for the rare planeswalkers, I would give achievements to those who have true ultimates (i.e. last ability that costs more loyalty that what they start with), which are the three remaining original Gatewatch members:

Jace, Wielder of Mysteries
Jace's Neat Solution
"Everything is solved. No loose ends."

Chandra, Fire Artisan
Chandra's Fiery Rush
"Combo time!"

Nissa, Who Shakes the World
Nissa's Primeval Forest
"No trees fall in MY forest, no matter who is around to hear."

So I finally finished adding the Oathbreaker variant. Anyone want to create a custom trophy image for it? It should probably use a Nicol Bolas planeswalker art based on the format's mascot.

A new set is coming soon, and C19 hasn't received the usual planeswalker/altwin achievement treatment yet, so as usual, please feel free to submit your ideas for the achievements for the C19 (Commander 2019) and the upcoming ELD (Throne of Eldraine) sets :) Thanks in advance!

C19 doesn't seem to have any new planeswalkers or altwin cards. As for ELD...

Garruk, Cursed Huntman
Garruk's Cursed Overrun
Run wild / run free / here's your / plus three

Oko, the Trickster
Oko's Massive Friends
"And watch where you're stomping!"

Oko, Thief of Crowns
Oko's Unfair Switcheroo
"How about some magic beans for that?"

Rowan, Fearless Sparkmage
Rowan's Magnetic Personality
"Personal magnetism can create the spark of revolt."

The Royal Scions
Kenrith Twins' Ultimate Combo
"You hit them, I'll tell you where."

Happily Ever After
Happy Ending.
*closes book* The End.

That should be everything, I think?

By the way, I was wondering if there could be QoL update where card text for planeswalkers and alt-win cards would display a message if the card has an achievement that wasn't obtained yet.

Thanks a lot, Marek, as usual! :) And do you mean like in the card detail panel or something like that?

Yes, card detail panel. Could be switched on and off in options, as "Achievement hints", or something.
