Man I know that feeling. Especially Ravnica, that place is a perfect place to have some awesome faction based games be it vidya or table top. Alara would also be interesting for games, while Mirrodin definitely has a fun variety of racial differences going on. It would have the vast advantage of five different versions of the 'vanilla and average' human race.

How WOULD one build the Humans of Mirrodin?
Auriok are white aligned and almost definitely going to lean more towards the archetypical example of chivalrious soldiers and knights.

Neurok are blue aligned and probably more magically inclined but with a hint of rogueishness as they form secret networks under their vedalken rulers.

Volshok are red aligned and definitely straight up barbarian type tribes. There is still room for magic amongst them as they tend to have mages that specialize in molding the earth. Also of note is that their internal body heat is capable of melting most materials so they are very thick skinned.

Sylvok are the green aligned humans and very interesting as well. They definitely lean towards ranger and druids but due to the fusion of synthetic and organic within all life on mirrodin they have very few qualms about artifacts as one might assume from anything that is a druid or even green aligned.

the Moriok are black aligned and I am not too sure about these guys. Clearly any spellcasting they might do would likely be pain and death related. There is not a whole lot about them in general within the lore presented during Scars, pretty much they were taken over far too fast. All that is really presented of them is is people with crazy bladed body parts and flesh that appears decaying.

The setting is Magic, the Gathering, set on the plane of Mirrodin in the Scars of Mirrodin block.

M:tG's setting revolves around countless different planes that powerful travelling wizards called Planeswalkers travel between.
One of these places is Mirrodin, a world where life has melded with metal and machinery. Copper forests, mercury oceans, that sort of thing. Otherwise everything is mundane.
The latest villain is the rebirth of an ancient faction called Phyrexia, artificial monstrosities dedicated to transforming all of existence into a single, efficient organism, corrupting and assimilating everything in their path.
In its current incarnation, Phyrexia is split up into five factions according to the five types of mana in the setting. Red for industry, fire and freedom, Green for evolution, nature and instinct, Blue for science, water and scheming, Black for corruption, death and ambition and White for order, life and discipline.
The character in the OP image is called Elesh Norn, the Praetor (leader) of the white aspect of Phyrexia, known as the Machine Orthodoxy.

I'm building an Elesh Norn white weenie EDH deck and something I noticed is that a lot of the cards that just work well with it just happen to be cards associated with the (former) Mirran Resistance like Hero of Bladehold, White Sun Zenith and yes Elspeth herself.

It made me think that the deck basically somewhat represents all those cards being 'compleated' into the Machine Orthodoxy and I was imagining what the reaction at the table would be if I laid down an altered "Elspeth, Norn's Champion" on the table

Keep in mind his abilities literally include Retroactive Continuity made into a lore-legit power.

He can undo and rewrite time on Mirrodin with little effort. And he can tear things from reality at a whim to be brought into the new timeline.

He's pretty much still through and through an oldwalker even though much of his imbued spark was leeched.

But there isn't much motivation for either. The Eldrazi do not war with one another. And slivers are basically a hive mind.

But the Phyrexians are diverse in both form and opinion. It would make for a setting that's the opposite of the Guildpact... 5 factions hellbent on destruction to finally decide and throne a new Father/Mother of Machines.

Holy shit I just thought of a great idea for a megablock. Three large sets. The first one is "Compleation", and is a Phyrexian world war set that is solely made up of Phyrexians, detailing their attempts to crown a new Father/Mother. The second one is "Phyrexia Cometh" a set that includes creatures from other worlds, detailing the first stages of all-out invasion on the multiverse.

Yeah, about that. Planeswalking isn't the only form of interplanar travel. These days it is just a neat parlor trick that some wizards can perform unassisted.

Magic is full of alternative means to travel the planes. Interplanar portals, vessels such as the Weatherlight, or even the overlaying of one plane onto another. Many of the techniques were even DEVELOPED by Phyrexia.

It is only a matter of time before the New Phyrexians re-develop the technologies of old. We've seen that the oil itself contains information from Old Phyrexia (Phyrexian Hulk). Additionally the plane of Mirrodin contains examples of inter-planar technology. Remnants of Memnarch's Soul Traps or the device featured in the card Prototype Portal should hasten the redevelopment along.

Quite frankly, when it comes to interplanar conquest, no faction has more experience than Phyrexia. The next wave of Phyrexian conquest is a matter of when, not if.

Yeah this. You start going through all the settings and planes in your head and you kinda realize. That Dominaria and Bant/Lorwyn were about the only two plane that could claim medieval fantasy or just fantasy. But no longer for Dominaria- as it's no a Post Apocalyptic setting with HEAVY pre-civ technology.

And Lorwyn and Bant gets a semi special exception because the painful story book fairy tale side was needed to help paint it's other nightmare half. And Bant was used in contrast to it's other halves or Beastlands/Burnt Earth/Techno City/ and Horror-Land.

simply being a 'fallen old walker' doesn't give him more power then a neowalker. He certainly has more experience and been around longer and to more planes which is an advantage but not directly related to being an old walker. Only reason Nicol Bolas is so powerful is because he is an Elder Dragon. Karn has vast power because he is a golem built by Urza with the purpose of being one of the keys to destory original phyrexia. It's rumored that his time related powers might have something to do with him surviving the rifts of the Time Spiral block.

When they were getting wrecked? He didn't leave them at that time.

Here is how things went roughly. You had first Mirrodin when Karn's 'warden' over his plane he made started to get daddy issues and went insane. Karn tryed to come back and stop it but somehow got locked out by his crazy creation who was turning his entire plane into a machine meant to extract a planeswalker spark from something and put it in something else so this former warden could then try and find it's creator. Well plans got foiled thanks to an elf and a goblin, Karn thanked them and undid a lot of the problems his creation caused but more or less decided to let the people now suddenly inhabiting his plan make their own choices on it.

His next big thing was during an event known as the Mending. This was when rifts appeared destroyed time and space. Numerous old walkers sacrificed themselves and the nature of the planeswalker spark to close them all, Karn somehow miraculously survived despite sacrificing his spark within the rifts. Somehow he managed to planeswalk one last time beore his spark was gone for good and the rift sealed up, and wound up within mirrodin. The new Phyrexians found him immediately and went right to work , catching him and corrupting him.

Long story short, he was busy saving the entire space and time continuum.

Preach it. I know a lot of people liked the interconectivity of it all, but as a Vorthos through-and-through it just seemed like a despicable waste of potential. An infinite multiverse, and how many planes did they make cards for besides Dominaria? Rabiah, Rath, Phyrexia, and the motherfucking Homelands? Not to mention they felt the need to plug the novels on EVERY SINGLE CARD THAT WOULD fit. Not only was their a huge disparity between design and story (we're doing Karona vs. Otaria! What a great time for a graveyard block!) but they'd just rip scenes and quotes from the novel and slap them on any card who's name and concept might vaguely fit.

Honestly, I grew to love some of the characters but outside the Granduer mechanic, and maybe the rest of the Legends block, since it did have some cool concepts just horribly butchered I'm glad they're letting it be dead. Time Spiral was an absolutely perfect way to wrap up all those long years of Dominarian conflict, and to be honest I feel they'd just make it worse by going back.

It's been said that Karn inadvertently seeded countless worlds with the oil as he was traveling, trying to heal time rifts. Of course, Mirrodin got the most of it and it got it near it's artificially engineered and perfected mana core, feeding and fed constantly by the Five Suns (after which one of Sheoldred is likely named; the Black Sun is also known by the first-assimilated Moriok as the Whisperer). One of the major reasons that New Phyrexia is so fractious is that in it's inception, it fed off every colour of mana equally and each individual drop evolved differently because of it.

O-Kagachi is dead, though. Only an aspect of him remains; remember that Kamigawa was supposed to take place thousands of years in the multiverses' past.

Also, for everyone saying that the Eldrazi would just wipe out Phyrexia or visa versa, Wizards has stated that they are of equal threat level to the Multiverse. They've also answered questions about whether Eldrazi could be compleated, but that was just a footnote in an unrelated article IIRC, in some sort of letters to the editor section.

Look at the art of Steam Augury. See that dragon with fins? What other dragon has fins? That's right: Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind.

The pose is very similar to Niv's in his old Guildpact card. Maybe the Eldrazi's destablizing presence shredded the fabric of the Multiverse ala the rifts in Time Spiral, and Niv is assembling an army of Fireminds to overthrow Nicol Bolas. No idea how the gods of Theros...or the people for that matter...play into this scheme, but it seems like a good ace in the hole for the Eldrazi if Nicky B tries to pull something over on Them.

Yeah. Many of the quotes come from The History of Kamigawa, pic related. Who knows? It would be nice to see modern Kami/peacetime Kami, even if it's a little toned down now. Expand more on the creature types and mechanics, give it a proper power level with cards that don't honestly seem like they're from Legends (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=79218), and they can work on lowering the levels of parisitism inherent to the original block to at least levels lower than Snow.

Er, and to expand on what I said earlier about Ol'O-Kagachi being dead: a part of him is still around. That-Which-Was-Taken decided it didn't want to be taken back, so she worked with Konda's daughter to slay the main O-Kagachi and take his place as twin guardians of the spirit world. Hidetsugu also absorbed the spirit of O-Kagachi's antithesis IIRC, so he'd make a good next-block villain. Or maybe just a dangerous loner, if they go for non-black villainy again.

As a final note, Toshiro Umezawa was brought to Dominaria by the Myojin of Night's Reach, and his ancestors have a history of repeatedly slapping Bolas' shit despite also being of Grixian colours.

You can hear it from her yourself in her Theros short story. The Phyrexian praetors are "gods" compared to her, hence what spurs her to Theros, where she wants to see gods that could challenge those of New Phyrexia. When concerned over Koth's capture, she says that they are immune to the oil, but they would flay him, drive him mad; the phyrexians have their ways, oil or not.

She is _afraid_, anon, because these phyrexians can do so much worse than kill her. I am so relieved my waifu is finally being given a "break" from all the thrice-damned atrocities she keeps experiencing everywhere she goes.

Argentum was a lifeless empty metal plane from the start.

So I think that'd make Karn happy, at least.

Just imagine; the presence of great hideousness would drive the Lorwyn elves into an amplified version of their Shadowmoor ways. Together with the merfolk, kithkin, boggarts, giants, treefolk, and all the rest of the free peoples of Lorwyn, they would crusade against the disgusting eyeblights of New Phyrexia, the monsters that threaten not only their lands, but all beautiful things in the Multiverse.

It would be a refreshing change to see some whimsy beat down on the tired, "apocalyptic" threats that so often rule the day of late.

Maybe different types of Lorwynites get compleated, but the block ends with the forces of whimsical justice crushing whatever mechanism allowed New Phyrexia to attempt an incursion into Lorwyn, and establishing a small enclave of beauty in the tarnished and ruined Mirrodin, hmm?

Obviously delicious Lorwyn coalition must be Israel, since they have to win the block and occupy a portion of New Phyrexia to avoid silly grimderp.
