Coolest bit of mechanical flavor is that as the Phyrexian forces "Proliferate" they can make the "Battle" last longer.
Wow true 🤭🤭 That's cool
The Battle's hit points being counters is dumb
@Myojin of Night's Reach I mean it's the only practical way of keeping track.
Only other way is for that number to be how much damage you have to deal to it in one turn like a creature. Other than that, the only way to keep track of a changing total (That's not life) over more than one turn is with counters.
@Myojin of Night's Reach iipp😊i 🎉❤😊😂😂
You're not wrong, just don't know how they would do it another way as fluently though.
If Innistrad is being featured, I really want an Unruly Mob reprint with flavour text along the lines of "here we go again."
phyrexian human horror- one-ruly mob 1 colorless and 2 phyrexian white for a 1/3 whenever a phyrexian enters the battlefield or a non-phyrexian creature enters the graveyard incubate 1
Did Tamiyo and Anissa not tell Norn about Emrakul?
So cool that the ability in Realmbreaker mimics the original World Tree
"Everyone and their mums packing Praetor tribal 'round here." "Like who?" "Commander players." "Who else?" "Commander players Mums."
The team that worked on Elesh Norn's walk at 12:42 did the most amazing job! If this were a full movie and we had a little breathing room to take it in, that would be one of the most memorable poses ever!
breathing room is what mtg´s storytelling needs.
@Gonçalo Ferreira and product line
No credits? This is some great work y'all. That mirroring avenged got me all choked up
what makes me a little sad is that it is the same thing as "You are already dead"
As a casual M:TG observer that looked cool. The presentation was well done.
I wish this battle had been spread over one more set but i have to say flavor wise this is def one of the coolest sets ever! That video was amazing!
i cannot express how much i love Borborygmos and Fbltph's showcase art
Damn I’m so sad urabrask is gone, really liked his character, would have been a great plot twist for him or one of the praetors to get a spark( if that’s even possible)
While the actual story depicts him chopped into fours, the card has him just left limbless, but alive. If anything, that could mean he's the last living praetor, albeit trapped within a phased out new phyrexia.
I believe they're closing Phyrexia's arc for good. That's why all praetors will die.
@Trevor Jamieson Well he wouldn’t be the last left unless Elesh kills Shelly too
@LethaL Norn Killed Shelly.
Specifically, The Ajaninator
Im actually a bit upset about how safe this set seems to be ending 🤣 it feels like this whole ordeal is going to end up being a good thing because now the planes are connected, all we lost were a few throw away characters because all of the main characters were somehow uncompleated. I'd hoped for more than a War of the Spark 2 level event.
So if it helps, Vorinclex, a praetor of New Phyrexia, invaded Kaldheim and in the process infected Tibalt, wounded Esika, and compleated numerous people and animals. The wiki says “the outcome of this interaction has yet to be revealed”. So maybe there’s a possibility they’ll be back?
Source: trust me bro
(Kidding, MtG Wiki fandom page: “New Phyrexia”, under “Forays to Other Planes”, first and second paragraphs)
What a great way to present the set! Please! More like this!
The art in this set is the coolest I have ever seen. Wasn’t hyped for this set. Am now hyped x1000
Nothing so perfectly encapsulates how rushed MtG's story is than saying 'the battle for the multiverse has begun' at 9:52 and then showing Elesh Norn's death less than 4 minutes later.
honestly 😭, they could have had a few more sets to fully depict the story… They’re running out of source material 💀
It is a game after all, and frankly ... we knew these things would happen the immediate moment we get to see the card reveals
One can call it rushed sure ... but then one has never actually looked at magic cards during reveal season before
"Oh, who is this mysterious entity on Innistrad?"
"Emrakul, I mean we knew this was likely what the fate of Innistrad was gonna be when Innistrad revealed itself as a plane the first time around but its nice that all of these 'clues' weren't so much clues as much as a game mechanic since you know, we knew from the other cards immediately what happened with Emrakul"
You can extrapolate this to literally 'all' of MTG's storylines - the only difference is that we have had years worth of buildup ever since the defeat of Nicol Bolas, and we got confirmation about this once we saw Vorinclex on Kaldheim ... its hardly been rushed if you go back and actually look at the stuff that built up towards it
@ArgentumEmperio Yes yes, your essay in refute of my single line quip is duly noted.
dude are u only here to stir some kind of commotion x)
relax and stop that very passive aggressive attitude, it really does not help anybody, not even yourself xD
be more appreciative of how much work goes into all of these cards and this product that we are able to enjoy.
some people these days really cannot be satisfied with anything.
GAme of Thrones level bulidup to 2 pump chump resolution
Very nice production. Can't wait for the new set.
Zilortha's flavor text deserves a nod.
Yup it is bad ass.
New Phyrexia and Ikoria casually comparing sizes of their monsters
The text is nice, but Zolortha isn't... 8/8 without trample for this size.🥲
Dang seems like the good guys win again, I really wanted phyrexia VS The Eldrazi! The biggest game to hunt!
Love the use of the soul parry phrase to add more flavour to an allready impressive set.They pulled out all the stops on this one, including the kitchen sink.😃😃😃😃
Can we appreciate how awesome the Voice Over people were on this!
Becca & Riley kill it.
Pretty sure I heard Lady Danger and Joe Johnson as well
@Brian Sterling I was gona say, it sounds like Joe Johnson
The art in this set is a chef’s kiss. Just perfection 👏🏻
I love this set! the ideas of mix two legends, although I reeeeally dislike cards make with 3d characters and backgrouds, they are suuuuuper akward
If you look at the teferi planeswalker background, its just the flip side, well flipped and pasted teferi on top with a shader for the background. Don't know how to feel of this, just thought it was worth a mention.
@N'Zeezoo Stupid III wow i did not see that, it look wierd. The one I really dislike it is rankle and torbran, looks like videogame picture. What I enjoy the most about magic it is the art, so I hope they dont continue along this path
I am actually excited about this set. Here's to hope it's limited is fun. (:
How can you make such a good video? I really enjoyed it
Phyrexians: Invade the Multiverse
Teferi: *Flips uno reverse
Se ve increíble el SET
Maybe, the cinematic and the cards will bring the closure that we are wanting 😊 I like how MTG's plot is never finalized through only one media - it's always many: the web stories, the cards, the cinematic, Arena... Counting the hours for the wrap up 🥰
Remember we’re also gonna be getting the Aftermath story after this set
great reveal video. keep this format!
This set looks so 🆒 ❤❤❤!!!!!
Jesus this cinematic was crazy. And the cards are great too. Awesome job.
Really hope to see some Amonket cards in this set
There are some! A simic Naga cleric just got posted
Can we please get a animated series for MTG I would pay ALOT just to see that!
By alot you mean monthly Netflix sub
I wonder how solemnity will interact with battles. Are battles a separate archetype that will count for delirium?
Solemnity doesn't say battles. Delirium will see battle since it's a card type
They also specifically leave out Walkers
i love this kind of presentation
One art card for Quintorious this time around, please!
I only wish that story wise, they stretched out the invasion to 2 parts/sets. Seems kinda silly how they keep saying “the invasion begins” when we already know it ended and who won
Either that, or a mini set for all the side stories of the phyrexian invasion released first, then the main set where the invasion’s climax concludes released a few months later
Can't wait to watch this, this set seems so fun and interesting!
I can’t wait to make a new Phyrexia deck
MtG sets used to come in blocks of three, giving plenty of time to absorb, appreciate, and digest the story. Now, we are lucky to get two consecutive sets that follow a common story - and this current story, with the AMAZING buildup in ONE, feels like such an anticlimax for an enemy that has dotted magic's history for more than 25 years.
I liked the characters that got compleated, but they should have stayed dead or gone. It's tragic, but makes the story more impactful for the heroes to experience the losses proportional to the biggest, baddest villains MTG has ever seen.
This is one of the best sets yet!
It isn't out yet..
I like that even if/when the Phyrexians lose, we will still have no way of knowing how many worlds they reached... and how many new new Phyrexias may now be out there. and is everyone just going to glide past the fact that they went to the Homelands!? That is kind of a big deal there!
@Joey Joe Joe You're fucking kidding me? They seriously pulled that shit?
@Joey Joe Joe aww... weak... but that cant be true for all Phyrexians, right? Maybe just the white aligned ones? We could always just throw in something about Gitaxian setting up some contingency plans on other worlds, right?
@grim triX New Phyrexia gets swapped with Zhalifir in the multiverse so it's cut off from everything. That all said, yes, there's still tons of oil now across many many planes so someone could always do something with it. If only there were some kind of evil Esper planeswalker just running around unaccounted for, hm.....
@Tony Smith the story is really bad. Makes War of Spark look good by comparison.
Are battles nonland permanents? or is it only affected by things like 'any target'?
Well they are permanents, and they are not lands, so yeah.
I want a clean image of Norn and Elspeth doing the stare down as a background drop.
Seems like War of Spark feels but with Phyrexians as the villains.
I want the art on mirrodin avenged as a playmat.
I want to art of ajani
seems like a solid card and really i just want to keep seeing that art of karn holding norn's head over and over
What incentive do other opponents have to attack a battle? If only the casting player reaps the benefit?
Que buena exp de commander
The cinematic was absolutely amazing. Please, we need a movie or a series like it.
this looks rad! And i know that everyone is tired of Phyrexia - but it would be cool to see some clues left that Yawgmoth is still out there. maybe we can come back to him in 10 years or so, as it was with new Phyrexia
So hyped about this
ixilan is involved i crave Huatli's return!
Battles are confusing but seem cool af
It's a planeswalker you give to someone and then "liberate" by beating the shit out of them
@MarineS0n2 seems reasonable enough
The two cards at the end:
"Two point Saber combo"
The story (at least the main story articles) were kind of a mixed bag for me. I mostly really liked the first eight articles. It was all extremely tense, building up really well to Wrenn summoning Zhalfir - And then, uh. The rest happens? I guess? They kinda just gloss over that part
WotC has been terrible at story since a couple of years back
@Myojin of Night's Reach I haven't actually read the stories for most sets or anything but the buildup to the payoffs seem alright... its just the execution that's awful. Like slowly introducing all the components of Bolas' plan over the years and having one phyrexian per set (from Kaldheim to Dominaria United (I guess Brother's War technically had Gix)) was done well, but both endings were just garbage. Especially this one imo.
@Myojin of Night's Reach I really wish they did a block for this event. Like 3 sets. 2 of which could have been focused on the beginning of the event amount different planes. The last one could have been the magnum opus of the event
Some people had really low expectations to the story. What Wotc did? They turned it reality.
Absolutely awful in so many levels.
Battles feel a bit too gimmicky to me outside Commander but the rest looks really good :)
Considering most of the flip-sides are bombs; it might be worth it in limited. That being said, I think removal, above everything, is a necessity.
They're pretty much sorceries but better in every way. As far as we've seen, they're all on rate for the sorceries they copy.
@MetalHev ...I'm call them more a cross between Planeswalkers and enchantment/sorceries.
@Dana Bell the whole point is that they do something when they etb. If the front side is bad by itself, the card is pretty much unplayable.
Seeing the multiverse being invaded is so HYPE! UNLEASH BOLAS
Glad zetalpa has yet to be completed. Not many other creatures can stand up to elesh norn and the other praetors.
nerding out like crazy on these images of war across the multiverse planes!
We have new art for some Showcase like a Niv Mizzet and Kolaghan maybe... Will we be back soon to their planes?
Im so sad that Urubrask is gone! He better get some sort of recognition for his coolness
I'm not sure if he's gone. Just "repurposed". Considering what happens in the rest of the story, I hope he gets to carry the torch of Phyrexia in some shape or form, or maybe even give his power to Atraxa.
@Justin Andersonatraxa got part of a city dropped on her and died
Here we go! I'm pumped
This set has the best artwork overall gj wizards
0:53 "...what remained of Urabrask heard Elesh Norn say, 'Leave the traitor be.'"
Oooh, that clapback was 12 years in the making.
Everytime I see onmath.... I am worried but not for the multiverse
That trailer was gorgeous.
Cool looking set
Was really hoping they'd free Emrakul from the moon, guess we'll have to see.
Man, this is DOPE
Maybe I'm missing something but is there a reason to attack someone else's battle card? Do you get anything?
Same reason you would pump an opponent's creature in Commander. Politics and threat assessment
@The Real Deal Collin Beal makes sense, thanks
im interested in reading the lore/story of MTG. is there a book or link anyone? thanks
Wotc: phyrexia invades and will destroy everything!
What we really get: phyrexia invades and are stopped by randos on the streets. No one dies, only phyrxians.
Oh compleat means nothing. Hooray uncompleat!
Well, Lukka dies. Wrenn dies. Karn gives up Venser's spark. Atraxa dies. Tibalt died last set. Tamiyo becomes a force-ghost. Meliria dies. Nahiri is buried under a bunch of rocks on Zendikar. All the praetors die. Millions across several planes die. Vraska and Jace are still both MIA and dealing with the fallout of phyresis/compleation. It beats War of the Spark, but, yes, I was hoping that this would be the end of one of the Lorwyn 5 (or even at least Nissa).
Not quite the reset button I was hoping for, but let's be honest--the first time that Phyrexia invaded they were beaten because Urza shot Yawgmoth with a big laser beam. Teferi and Wrenn pulling a temporal inversion and Koth, Karn, and Elspeth kill and unmake Norn is absolutely a more satisfying conclusion, though the whole 'all the phyrexians shut off like robots and the oil is now useless!' aspect of it does feel like a cop-out. At least we're getting an aftermath set.
@Laurent Robitaille It's the getting there that's interesting. Besides, maybe she won't and the image is literally just there to deceive you. Folks are quick to deride WotC for presenting plots too much like Marvel and this is a fairly common strategy they employ in their trailers.
The MtG story in recent years is just a bad copy of MCU. Awful.
New term unlocked. First we had "Bolt the Bird". Now we have "Bolt the Battle".
I’m a new player. I have a question, how am I supposed to know which coming set can be used in standard mode ?
We have a list of Standard-legal sets on our website, along with more information! magic.wizards.com/en/formats/standard
Etali looks SICK
Elesh Norn: i am invincible! My legion will conquers all!
Me, holding onto a Desire Driver: you might wanna say that again, otherworldly ceramic lady. I will show you the climax of the highlight to this invasion.
Chandra meeting Nissa breaks my heart😭
This is some unreal power creep.
I really hope we get a new Karn legendary creature! 😭
But he's a planeswalker...
@Darksora you gotta read the story my dude.
@Darksora not anymore. the story explains it.
Cant believe they printed a new zilortha before making a paper Version of the first ine
Ah, that explains it. I thought it was a new character.
Insane art brooooo!
What if Eldrazi invade Phyrexia?
How does it make sense for Melira to die for Ajani... of all Phyrexianized characters!? It's not like Ajani is useful.. Better to fix Tamiyo that probably has some Eldrazi storytelling to do. Also, Phyrexians just failing for no good reason has got to be one of the WORST stories Wizards could write.. but anything they've made has been terrible anyway.
Its anticlimactic really. The killer of planes, the completer of planeswalkers, dies to one sword swipe. From an angle nevertheless (if you know some lore, angles and demons cant be planeswalkers, but here we are). Love the set and phyrexians, just don't love the execution of a possible godly story and set(s).
Tamiyo was already dead and ajani was kinda there i guess xd
Holding the fort* It's not going to float away
So dose the flipped battle go on your side?
The set looks great, just wish the story wasn't so rushed and underwhelming.
Imagine if Avacyn came instead, she'd fking drop Elesh....lol but Even so Elesh is fking dope!
Melira really be out here paying the highest price to free Ajani.
My commander and my planeswalker.
People are crying about how phyresis and compleation could be reversed and it's like
Yeah, by the only person in the multiverse naturally immune to it, who dies immediately after curing it in two people, and also by
The most powerful time wizard in the multiverse
Another planeswalker giving up their spark
Kind of a high cost, especially given there could have been way easier cop-outs with Halo.
you can counter the back fases of battles right?
so hyped, ill edit this comment later
edit: IT WAS GOOD, but short, granny sengir is back baby!!!!! i also liked the trailer
I don't really understand the flavour of battles.
You play them by choosing someone else, which means you're attacking, which would supposedly make you the phyrexians for most of them (like Ikoria). So why are the big transformed rewards the defending parties?
Yeah, it should be some kind of reward for the attacking forces.
My immediate reactions, in order, (1) This looks really cool and fun, (2) I'm worried WotC wants to push sales with power creep because the set looks crazy strong, (3) Battle cards should be portrait-oriented, not landscape, good luck reading the card in your hand without revealing to your opponent you're holding a Battle, (4) I'm concerned that this set won't be fun for draft and/or sealed because the big, splashy cards look crazy good and if the commons and uncommons suck, it might come down to who gets lucky instead of drafting and deckbuilding skill.
"Phyrexia's largest goliaths (minus Blightsteel Colossus) stormed Ikoria. Zilortha was unimpressed." There, I fixed that flavor text.
Also, Disney's lawyers are typing furiously after seeing the art for Invasion of New Phyrexia
And so are DC's lawyers, Elspeth is literally Wonder Woman.
@Dargkkast nah. She's more like Hawkgirl than Wonder Woman
Lol yeah the armored rhino was probably a poor decision. Otherwise it could definitely be pure coincidence.
MtG should stop emulating MCU.
@Dargkkast Netflix She-Ra
Marchesa is like, "I am keeping my Throne, you lowly peasant constructs".
No one gonna talk about the Kozilek looking Eldrazi in 9:54 ??????
The mechanic is cool, but the concept of the battle cards doesn't seem to be flushed out. I think they could've went one of two ways:
1. You pay the mana cost to initiate a "battle" with target opponent. If you can get pass your opponent and break through its defense counters, you win the battle and get the flip side as reward.
2. Instead of calling the new permanent a "battle", they could''ve called it an "incubator", like the new incubate mechanic. This way, it makes sense that you can attack it and deal damange to it.
is that kozilek in the stasis field art? at 9:57
no that's omanth from the looks of it
@DangerousHydra I can see where your coming from but I thought omnath went five color and it looks nothing like that.
@DangerousHydra def not omnath lmao
Oh interesting, so they've swapped the prerelease and online release, is it because limited was solved to quickly? Nevertheless, good hype video.
NO! How is Phyrexia gonna be dead? I guess there are some remnants, but they are my fav villian.
I want that boon card 😰😞😛
ELSPETH IS A ANGEL YESSSS
