Finally, some Eldrazi stuff in this. I knew they wouldn't be in the set, as much as I wanted them too, but just acknowledging that they existed on Zendikar is good enough for me.
You know it was one of the photos teased on zendikar
No, I did not know that. I will say this set seems to be ignoring that an apocalyptic event happened on the plane not that long ago, probably less than a few years in story time, but maybe they discussed that in some article as to why we are spending so much time in the sky this time.
Guess depends on how you connected you want it, but from lore a lot of the conflict is based on the eldrazi aftermath. Nahiri's whole goal is to stop the roil as is it a reminder of the eldrazi influnce on the plane and her failure to protect the plane by getting the for artifact(s) in the ruins. The sky ruins only activated since the only one left in the air (Emeria, the Sky Ruin) had been guarded by angels who left to deal with the eldrazi and explorers activates them.
They also mention Drana and the vampires struggling as Drana is the only blood chief (the only kinda of zendikar vampire that can make more vampires) left after the eldrazi whipped them out and is struggling to figure out how her people will survive.
