    Coolest bit of mechanical flavor is that as the Phyrexian forces "Proliferate" they can make the "Battle" last longer.

      @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.

    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!

    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)

    • Trevor Jamieson
      Trevor Jamieson 2 months ago +26

      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.

    • Rafa Allegretti

    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.

    • Yheti
      Yheti 2 months ago

      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?

  • SniperDave

    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.

    • DocTristan
      DocTristan 2 months ago +9

      honestly 😭, they could have had a few more sets to fully depict the story… They’re running out of source material 💀

    • ArgentumEmperio
      ArgentumEmperio 2 months ago +6

      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

    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

  • Matt Macor
    Matt Macor 2 months ago

    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.

    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!

      @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.

      @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.

      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.

    • Varsoon HKS

      @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.

    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).

      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.

    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?

    • lberghaus
      lberghaus 2 months ago

      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.

    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.
