New Trademarks - A return to Mirrodin?

  • #1
    There are three new Trademarks filed by Wizards of the Coast that indicate a return to Mirrodin in the future... and something more sinister:

    Mirrodin Pure

    Scars of Mirrodin

    and

    ...

    ...

    New Phyrexia. OMG

    That sounds like an artifact block coming up.

    That sounds really interesting. And a return to classic storylines! Let's hope it's legit and comes to fruition!

    WoTC, thank you for finally announcing the Modern format, an eternal format where everyone can participate.

    It does, but would they do that again, after having done it just a couple years ago?

    Looks like we might have a new weatherlight story arc

    Thanks to scuttlemutt productions!

    it's been at least 3 or 4 years since they did it and i love the flavor of it. they just need to do it right and not make affinity.

    Oh God, please be true, please be true, please be true...

    If we're going back to Phyrexia in any recognizable form, I'll have one less thing to do before I die.

    Based solely on the names, it sounds like:

    1: Mirrodin makes a return
    2: The creatures of Phyrexia create a planar portal to Mirrodin searching for a new place to call home, and wage war against the inhabitants for control of the plane.
    3: The creatures of Phyrexia succeed.

    New Phyrexia? =O awesome, I am not that keen on mirrodin though.
    I hope the day will draw nearer that we may actually see an Urza pw card ^^ or something of the man, and maybe in new Phyrexia we will =P who knows
  • #12
    This is the best news ever. I hope this is an artifact block. I loved the entire Mirrodin Block

    Forget Karn what about Urza.

    It's a wee bit early for them to trademark next years set... My guess is that it could be another special set/dual deck... NOT a new block.

    maybe New Phyrexia is name of 3rd set of ZEN block

    3: The creatures of Phyrexia succeed.


    The protagonist of the block:

    Skri'it - Negator
    Xavla - Sleeper Agent
    Gex - Praetor

    Would be hilarious, though I don't think we can count on a block storyline with an actual bad ending. Phyrexia spreading should be bad, m'rite?

    Actually, Lights should be in mostly ready and they'll probably start sending out card assigments to artists late September/early November.

    It also doesn't fit neither "versus" nor "premium" naming conventions. It might however be a completely new product.

    I was thinking something similar, although more along the lines of either a new FTV, or Premium Deck Series

    But we're getting Phyrexia vs The Coalition soon enough. Another Phyrexia-involved special set so close on the heels of the duel deck?

    Could it be for a series of novels/graphic novels/web projects?

    Web comics would make sense. They have been releasing those three at a time.

    If it is the names of 3 blocks then it sounds to me like karn's corruption is changing him in evil ways and is going to become the new yawgmoth and corrupt Mirrodin.

    Usually the trademarks have certain 'categories' attached to them, don't they? (to determine what they are exactly for)
    At any rate, isn't this very early for them to trademark the Lights/Camera/Action block?

    Had previous webcomics been trademarked?

    Really, the connection between those names strongly resembles block naming conventions.
