Quote from Onering »Here's a reminder that Africa is BIG.
The distance between Egypt (which Amonkhet is based on) and Kenya (Mirage is based on the Savannah and jungle of Africa, and especially evocative of the Lake Victoria region, of which Kenya is the closet state in the region to Egypt) is greater than the distance between England and Ukraine. It is as relevant to think the best comparison for an Egyptian themed set is an African Great Lakes themed set as it is to think the best comparison for a Slavic themed set would be a British Isles themed set. Its far more relevant to compare Amonkhet to Theros, especially due to the themes the two settings are working with.
So, comparing Innistrad to Lorwyn?
Honestly, having read about the Mirage War (thanks, Quannage!), I find it odd that anyone would compare Mirage and Amonkhet at all; the stories have nothing in common.
