Shame they couldn't do anything with the "Blood Magic" he was showing in story. Pay life and Sac a creature to gain control of one, or something like that.
Quote from Duke Daemon »Am I the only one who would like to see Old Phyrexia before we make another phyrexian colony? I mean I personally would like to find out who originally made the plane of Phyrexia and what it was like before Yawgmoth got his hands on it.
Not to mention but Argentum/Mirrodin had access to soul cages which were designed to snatch individuals away from different planes. So I am pretty sure the neo-phyrexians were already close to discovering planar travel. Especially since the Thranian portals are everywhere on multiple planes. It wouldn't shock me to find out that their remnants lie hidden on planes buried for other to find and awaken. Urza himself discovered one and awakened it.
Finally I am so sick of this plane, its like wizards is trying to recreat the Thranian race but make it "cool".
Proof that Kaldesh is a ripoff of the Thranian race.
[What has happened]The Kaldesh/Thranian have a power source system called the Aetherflux Reservoir/Fractured Powerstone which is pumped via pipes around the city which were used for all manners of things. Their entire world is controlled by a Consulate/Thranian High Council which use a tiered voting system to decide the course of it's empire. A divide in the populace grew due to decisions made by the Consulate/Thranian High Council. This led to a Aether Revolt/Thranian Rebellion. The arrival of a planeswalker Tezzeret/Dyfed only furthered the downfall of the empire.
[What I expect to happen/Has happened] is that Tezzeret/Yagmoth will take his followers and artifacts out of Kaldesh/Thran using an artificier(Rashmi/Dyfed) to open a planar portal into an artificial plane. Then Tezzeret/Yagmoth will use these followers and artifacts to construct a phyrexian army.
Seriously go read The Thran by J. Robert King. Then read Kaldesh's story.
Quote from LordOrgodemir »Rarity aside, this is the only mana rock we have. And it will see play as a result.
Quote from ty blitzer »Ok, this set is starting to feel crazy. Some cards are good and are in the lower rarities and then some cards are just mana dorks and are in the high rarity.
Quote from Truth »Quote from RickCorgan »The "yeah, I'll keep watch" on Chandra's Oath flavor text is further proof that they are trying to not only do their own Avengers / Justice League, but also match the cringeworthy Hollywood lines and clichéd one-sided personalities. Card is nice, though.
How dare they have a varied cast of characters. Chandra is already anything but one-dimension, she's the typical comic relief character you'd imagine her to be from quotes like this, but the thing that brought her back to Zendikar was mostly guilt and sensse of responsibility.
