The End of an Era

    Yup its Tezzeret. I almost wonder if it was an experiment to see vorinclex could survive. Not good the metal bits of phyrexia can survive and heal up using Tezzerets bridge.


    Also Family Tree;

    Alrund is the patriarch, brother to Jorn and "married" to Cosima. They have three kids Toralf, Birgi, and Kolvori as well as Halvar being adopted by Alrund. Alrund tries to use rune magic to talk to the world tree which got us Tergrid and Esika so "children" of Alrund as well it seem. That just leaves Reidane, Egon and Valki as unknown but likely could be Alrund siblings. Reidane deeply likes the Beskir clan for saving Alrunds so she seems have a connection to him.

    Well I will go ahead and say the theory

    From a Reddit user was interesting might be kasmina who hired Kaya to kill vorinclex

    basicly it comes from the war art book her cabal and her unknown intentions for a conflict the theory is that conflict is the new phyrexia phyrexians and she’s Basicly urza (not power wise planning and personality wise)


    That would check out.

    So is Vorinclex making Tibalt sow chaos as a prelude to Phyrexian invasion?


    I also wound't be surprised if the "seed" or w/e in Tibalt also spread oil or something else to help Phyrexia. That way even if Kaya kills Vorinclex* w/e been done to Tibalt might still stick around.

    *I think this likely but if SoI taught we should wait for the full context


    well my theory with the posion is potentially wanted to compleat a walker so they can get their hands on a spark so they can go to other planes

    oh the third story also mentions tibalt has kill kaya on the list?

    im not sure if it will work out but i have tin foil hat theory of who hired kaya to hunt vorinclex from a couple of reddit users


    Thats also a mystery to solved.

    To note I do like how it ties in and explains Koma being able to break into Sternheim.

    Today’s installment was much too short for my tastes. What I do find interesting is that the parts that aren’t narrated by Tibalt are written from the perspective of an unknown narrator who tells the story from the perspective of Tibalt’s thoughts. Surely vorinclex, as a phyrexian, doesn’t care about Tibalt’s looks, and would probably consider him a weakling for not being compleat, but that’s not what Tibalt sees, and the narrator’s perspective reflects that.

    “The beast knew that a handsome and powerful planeswalker such as Tibalt would never stoop to helping a hideous, stupid monster...”


    Pretty sure its Tibalt writing his own Saga. Which honestly works great here as an unreliable narrator its hard to tell fully whats going if we had a 3rd person omniscient point of view.

    I'm happy both decks got arcane signet just like zendikar did


    Me too. It's a card that's almost necessary in every commander deck and despite it being in Commander Legends and most of the recent commander decks I still don't have quite enough. And it feels bad to pay around 4 or 5 dollars for a card that comes as a freebie in commander decks.


    Ditto, needs to be reprinted to death until its affordable.

    Hate to necro this BUT.... are we actually going to get a Kaldheim Trailer?
    Is the teaser it?


    Looks like it. I think they spent all the budget on that horrible metal band they had at the Kaldheim party


    Don't assume or it makes an ass...


    Do you have a link of them saying that?

    New story;
    https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/episode-3-saga-tibalt-2021-01-20

    So Vorinclex inflected Tibalt with a "seed" and wanted Tibalt to cause a distraction for him, which Tibalt planned to do anyways.

    Tibalt is on his way into being completed.

    It seems that Tibalt somehow imprisons the real Valki, as seen on his classic version and partially also on his showcase Valki side (note the person chained to a pillar in tbe background). As well as in this card and its flavor: https://mythicspoiler.com/khm/cards/glacialdetentionpillar.html


    As said its seems to be a fun nod at the mythology.

    Could also find a lot of room with making a rune for each evergreen mechanic and color shift ones while still staying at this lowest power for other cards to work with/abuse.

    The fact they cantrip and work in auras, equipment and somewhat vehicles for WR is nifty but yeah otherwise lack luster. Hopefully we see more of this explored in returns/core sets/ect.

    Love these cost reduction cards, better than ramping in a few ways. Might be the way to go more for "white ramp".

    I mean they even tried doing land tapping in red for a bit, it didn't catch on since often your just averaging out instead of gaining advantage.

    I like this card for Jorn there needs to be a bit more rewards for untapping all your stuff.

    Nice nod to the mythology too since Loki ends up trapped (though i think trapped in a pillar of ice is more pleasant than bound by your sons guts and having snake drip venom on you).
