A New and Exciting Beginning
 
The End of an Era

    I must say that one of the many things I am really disappointed is the lack of Phyrexian infighting. Urabrask's revolt, the big thing hinted over the years, is completely glossed over, with just Tezz finding out that Jin-Gitaxias knew about it and captured one of Urabrask's lieutenats. And Geth just got his head cut by Ichel after a brief fight.

    And if MotM is about showing various worlds fighting againts Norn's forces, I hardly expect it to be played more there.


    The alteration should be something like killing Rashmi (preventing the planar bridge from being invented, therefore locking the Phyrexians on Mirrodin) or destroying Mirrodin after Karn left or after Memnarchs Defeat. But it was stated by Karn, that he may have infected other worlds too, so maybe than they may come from another ancle. Maybe killing/cleaning Karn after the Invasion is the safest spot...


    Killing Karn after Invasion means negating the Otarian arc, Mirari, Jeska, Karona...and without Jeska, the Mending cannot happen, etc...

    Cleansing him might work.

    Preventing the Planar Bridge from being invented would lock them. Maybe. But it also negates War of the Spark.

    Soooo....

    In Tezz's story, there is said that many of the planes already succumbed to the invasion, including some named ones from the prerevisionist era (Mirrankkar, Ilcae, Cabralin).

    In Teferi's story, the mightiest chronomancer in the Multiverse we know of just became really pissed, speaking the words "it is not too late".

    March of Machines: Days of Future Past. I call it now.

    I mean... A teaser title image of MoM shows Teferi (alongside that loxodon from Strixhaven and Thalia). We knew for some time that Teferi was involved and given his specialty, time travel always seemed like a fairly low-hanging theory.


    I know, Flisch. I was saying it myself from the beginning.

    What I wanted to say is that with each additional more or less irreversible event presented to us, the " the only way to repair it is to make sure it did not happen" resolution jumps in probability.

    I just wonder what could be changed. Go back to Thran era and killing Yawgmoth? Intefere with the Brothers' War? Preventing Karn from infecting Mirrodin? Prevent the compleation of walkers? Kaldheim mission? ... many options.

    War of the Spark had little to do with Infinity War - Endgame.

    The main trait of IW-E is the whole getting out of the lowest low spiel. WotS was just your standard "epic battle with stakes". WotS was closer to these mass-superhero battles than IW-E. Even the announcement artwork of MoM with Chandra and the legendaries evokes the fight at the end where all the different factions of the universe are summoned to battle Thanos' forces. It's really the MtG take on IW-E.


    Agreed. We thought War of the Spark to be the Magic's IW/E, but in retrospect, that was just the Avengers battling Loki during the Battle of New York. This is the real McCoy.

    Okay, let me be the first who says it.

    This ****ing mess of a "darker than the darkest hour" cannot be undone by other way than a ****ing Teferi-facilitated time travel and ensuring it **** ING never happened.

    If anything, this joke of a "resolution" of Elspeth's arc does not allow for something else.

    Like, I am sure she is not dead...but this is really a joke.

    Though I must admit, the "we cannot blow the sylex up because we would blow up the Multiverse" was something I did not expect.

    Poor Geth, seems that the guy cannot get a break, having his head cut off every once a while.

    It was a Reddit thing. Plus he known for disguised himself he did it as valki on kaldheim

    Also people thought it didn't make sense at all of how lukka joined them out of no where.

    and ofcoarse this could be the key of how the plan goes so horribly wrong for the strike force.


    Tibalt is not a shapeshifter.

    Thoughts:
    Conduit of worlds a good way to let your graveyard just be another part of your hand.
    Seed ore: gotta have the sliver hive variant! If more phrexians were 1/1 this be amazing though


    Seedcore is a callback to Pendelhaven.

    Caranthir (and anyone else) if you haven't kept up with the leaks, DO NOT READ IF YOU DON'T WANNA BE SPOILED

    An official wizards account accidentally released a promo pic early (and has since delated but internet is forever) featuring someone holding 3 planeswalkers cards like they where her hand. It was hard to make out two of the cards abilities but it clearly showed Jace, Vraska and Nissa having been compleated.

    More recently a rare sheet seemed to have been misprinted into Dominaria Remastered and from that we saw the "safe" cards for Wanderer, Kaya and Tyvar (Kaito was officially show as a Xmas gift), as well as showing a reprint of Phyrexian Arena showing Jace being captured by compleated Vraska.


    5C, I fully know about these three leaked cards as well as the spoiled rare sheet that shown us exactly who is safe.

    I just say these ones everybody comments about are the manga alternate "What if" treatments. These arts are not identical to the leaked ones, despite both being black and white.

    Now we will see what happens in the story in 5 days but I decided to take another look at the “what if” photos (the ones that are real)

    I noticed nahiri is the least compleated from the 5 (jace's heart is showing, vraska has that naga body, nissa has 4 hands, and pure chaos in lukka) but all I see in nahiri is having swords for hands and a couple spikes in the shoulder area

    I might suggest nahiri might have gotten a Urabrask compleation (which is wanting it)


    I am not quite sure that the What if versions show the actual likeness of the walkers.

    I do not expect Jace to get Luxior so easily.

    On the other hand, does The Filigree Sylex show what I think? Compleated Jace?

    Loving to see Thrun alive and kicking, and probably very important.

    And Geth Smile One cannot love the guy.

    Interesting with Venser making a legendary golem token. Probably the one he is hanged inside.

    Melira has grown a "little".

    This is rather complicated, as there are several parallel things running, including one in the present.

    The history of the brothers:

    Apprenticeship to Tocasia until her death

    ( last one is Mishra running after the previous event cost Tocasia her life)

    Urza's time in Kroog:


    Mishra's time in the desert and joining the Fallaji:


    The Yotia-Fallaji War begins...


    ..and transforms into the Brothers' War, as Mishta becomes the qadir and Urza takes over as Yotia's tuler when both the old adir and Yotia's Warlord are killed.
    The Fall of Kroog

    Mishra has nightmares of Phyrexia,..



    Urza's son Harbin discovers Argoth by accident:
    Shoot Down
    (and a very old card Crosswinds)

    The brothers start plundering Argoth. Argoth defends itsslf:


    Mishra in desperation seeks other sources of power and fall deeper into the influence of Gix:


    The war rages and the Terisia City, haven to scholars of the Third Path, is also destroyed

    Ashnod, Mishra's second in command, falls in love with Tawnos, Urza's assistant, when he is captured. She is dismayed with Mishra apparently falling under the sway of the Gixians. She helps him to escape and later, after she captured and tortured Loran who escaped from Terisia with the sylex, she hands over the sylex to Tawnos and tells him what Urza should do with it (the info what she got from Loran, who translated the glyphs).



    It all comes to the final showdown on Argoth:



    Urza triggers the Sylex Blast. He ascends:
    One with the Multiverse

    Related cards:
    Urza's Ruinous Blast
    Terisiare's Devastation(CMD)

    Tawnos built a stasis coffin, originally meant for capturing Mishra. Thanks to it, he survives.
    The Stasis Coffin
    Tawnos, Solemn Survivor (CMD)

    Urza observes the aftermath
    Calamity's Wake

    Life goes on...
    Kayla's Reconstruction


    Present:

    Just came here to report it. I logged into Arena after three days, opened an Alchemy pack and enjoyed a genuine suprise after so many years when I opened Jarsyl.

    Good to see Rusko as well. I really hoped he'll get a card in the main set.
