This thread's title has finally been decided on


#6270

@epicflygon is correct: 100.


#6271

Yeah, sorry about creating that monster.


#6272

Who did that art? looks really nice.


#6273

That would be Glen Angus, sadly deceased. That art in particular was for a MTG card called ‘All Suns’ Dawn.’


#6274

How does relate? I is confuzzled


#6275

That is very sad that such a talented person died that young, I did want to know about that art. Is the art mirrodin or phyrexia? Not sure if phyrexia has suns. I have not delved much into the lore.

(I assume you are a magic kind of person)


#6276

It was pre-phyrexian invasion Mirrodin. In later sets, Phyrexians invaded Mirrodin and effectively ruined that plane. IIRC, that card is from ‘Fifth Dawn,’ the third set of the Mirrodin block.


#6277

So at the end of fifth dawn, mirrodin was fine and the story moved elsewhere? Or was the phyrexian infection not taken its hold yet?


#6278

Reminds me of the beautiful game The Secret World was BEFORE release (args and the forums … rip).


#6280

At the end of the Mirrodin block, the fifth sun rose (the green sun) and it saw a ‘happy’ ending. It was much later that Mirrodin was revisited, with the story being about Phyrexia invading and corrupting the plane. Some planswalkers fought against the invasion (Elspeth, Karn, Venser, Koth) but failed to stop the Phyrexians. Venser is dead, Koth presumed dead, Elspeth was force planswalked away at the last moment (only to wind up dying later anyhow :frowning: ). Karn left to try and stop Phyrexia elsewhere.

Mirrodin is now known as New Phyrexia.

All dis nowledge

Many thanks my lord

I heard that all the blocks before the stories online had actual books, are those easy to find/online somewhere?

Hopefully not expensive


#6282

What are you doing? Why?


#6283

Yeah, it was rather short lived, but I have the Odyssey, Mirrodin, Kamigawa and Time Spiral series in paperback. You should be able to find 'em online somewhere.

I highly recommend the Kamigawa books (Outlaw, Heretic, and Guardian), they have a fantastic story with an awesome main character. Mirrodin and Odyssey were good too. I’d avoid Time Spiral, tbh. Dunno about the other books, but a friend of mine swears the ‘Artifacts’ cycle is the best (it starts with The Brothers’ War).

Nowadays they do lore on their website in little shorts every week or so. You should look into it if you’re interested. It’s great reading, tbh. You can find these articles here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/columns/magic-story


#6284

Fixed if for you.


#6285

urza and another pre-mending planeswalker right?
They were both artifacty dudes, my memory just escapes me now


#6286

How dare you

But I do like atraxa, at least one good thing came of that…


#6287

:man_shrugging:

I sincerely hope you’re not the kind of person who plays Elesh Norn. A friend of mine has a Sissay commander deck that fishes out Elesh Norn and Kamahl. He uses them to turn all my lands into 1/1 creatures that immediately die from getting -2/-2 from Norn. The worst part about this is… It was my recommendation to put Kamahl in the deck for this combo. :dagger: :heart:


#6289

That is no place for a dick my good sir, although it would have good circulation…


#6290

That is an evil way of doing things, I never thought of that combo with kamahl.


#6291

Thanks for the suggestion! I know what commander deck I’ll be building next…
