    Yup its Tezzeret. I almost wonder if it was an experiment to see vorinclex could survive. Not good the metal bits of phyrexia can survive and heal up using Tezzerets bridge.


    Also Family Tree;

    Alrund is the patriarch, brother to Jorn and "married" to Cosima. They have three kids Toralf, Birgi, and Kolvori as well as Halvar being adopted by Alrund. Alrund tries to use rune magic to talk to the world tree which got us Tergrid and Esika so "children" of Alrund as well it seem. That just leaves Reidane, Egon and Valki as unknown but likely could be Alrund siblings. Reidane deeply likes the Beskir clan for saving Alrunds so she seems have a connection to him.



    well vorinclex had to eat a truck load of stuff to regenerate the flesh on his body

    I would say tezzert knows about the tyrite and suggested to get a sample to test for the bridge if it can keep the flesh part on the phyrexians on them when they go threw the bridge, but he’s never been to kaldheim

    now The big question is what deal did tezzert make with the praetors for his bridge to test for plane traveling we know he has connections to Jin-Gitaxas and we also know tezzert wanted the throne karn almost got from almost being fully corrupted until he got cured just in the nick of time

    Lore of the legends

    lets look at the most important one shall we


    Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider

    Vorinclex is a praetor of New Phyrexia. He despises the concept of sentience and wants the multiverse to operate solely on the roles of predator and prey—survival of the fittest for all. When Elesh Norn gained the upper hand on the other praetors, she knew Vorinclex would be the easiest to influence, as his desires were the basest of the praetors.

    Why Vorinclex arrived in Kaldheim is currently unknown, but the purposes are certainly nefarious. The method he used to travel between planes is also a mystery. Vorinclex's organic parts were destroyed in the journey, leaving only metal and bone. An inquisitive stag sniffing around his remains was enough raw material to begin crafting a new body, and Vorinclex slowly made his way up the forest food chain until he had created a form he found satisfactory.



    so elesh norn may have dominated all the realms now? And vorinclex may have ran away because he doesn’t want to go elesh way and go his way?

    Oh and his arrival that’s why he’s based on grendel the feast is to repair his body

    speaking Of which

    Vorinclex's organic parts were destroyed in the journey, leaving only metal and bone


    for those claiming it can't be tezzert due to lazotep required to go threw the planar bridge

    you May potentially get the lex Luther “wrong!” meme why would vorinclex loss his flesh in the travels bolas scales shed while ugin was bringing in unconscious to the mediation realm

    Well I will go ahead and say the theory

    From a Reddit user was interesting might be kasmina who hired Kaya to kill vorinclex

    basicly it comes from the war art book her cabal and her unknown intentions for a conflict the theory is that conflict is the phyrexians and the cabal is something similar to the 9-titans and she’s Basicly new phyrexia era urza (not power wise planning and personality wise)

    That’s like one of the best bear token arts too date

    The treasure is sweet making it gems rather than gold or treasure chest

    Yeah that cat token could be the most popular one yet

    Quote from Dunharrow »
    So is Vorinclex making Tibalt sow chaos as a prelude to Phyrexian invasion?


    I also wound't be surprised if the "seed" or w/e in Tibalt also spread oil or something else to help Phyrexia. That way even if Kaya kills Vorinclex* w/e been done to Tibalt might still stick around.

    *I think this likely but if SoI taught we should wait for the full context


    well my theory with the posion is potentially wanted to compleat a walker so they can get their hands on a spark so they can go to other planes

    oh the third story also mentions tibalt has kill kaya on the list?

    im not sure if it will work out but i have tin foil hat theory of who hired kaya to hunt vorinclex from a couple of reddit users

    If I understand it correctly, Hero of Bretagard counts any counters on her, for example also Ability Counters from Ikoria and onward. So she doesn't have to be 11/11 upon Apotheosis, but could have some extra abilities instead.



    that’s right

    so in Kathril, Aspect Warper she goes (no need for flying in indestructible counters ofcoarse)



    Oh for everybody I want to throw a very very interesting note about cosmic intervention

    it Doesn’t say how it goes to the graveyard. Where I’m going with this is you can cast this then just use your phyrexian altar or whatever sac outlets you got you get the benefits then they combat on your endstep


    so the mother of all cards with this information....

    SCAPESHIFT!

    New story;
    https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/episode-3-saga-tibalt-2021-01-20

    So Vorinclex inflected Tibalt with a "seed" and wanted Tibalt to cause a distraction for him, which Tibalt planned to do anyways.

    Tibalt is on his way into being completed.



    oh geez tibalt s gonna end up the same fate as karn almost did?

    Now my thoughts on the new cards

    The intervention is clearly the most notable I love variants of faith's reward/thrilling encore but really this is the closest thing to a budget teferi's protection

    EDIT: OH! OOOOH! YOU CAN SAC YOUR PERMANENTS AFTER THIS RESOLVES WITH A FREE SAC OUTLET THEN THEY COME BACK AT ENDSTEP!

    the hero that a mouthful for a creature type when you get it to 11/11 “human angel god warrior”

    flicker the farmer and you got a nice ramp for white but they could do better though

    the sage - oh boy muldrotha, the gravetide are gonna flip from this card

    Deluge - oh that’s Scourge of Fleets on a sorcery

    tales of ancestors - THOSE FOOLS! This could have been a white card easily because of happily ever after WHITE NEEDS BETTER DRAW! (In other words this is a incredible group hug draw card that should have been white)


    Now the elf deck cards

    the Pact - ooooh that’s damnable pact in tribal form

    Winnower (not eldrazi) - congradulations elf tribal you get your version of Anowon, the Ruin Sage (elves instead of vampires) EDIT: OH SHOOT! It’s faster than Anowon it happens on everybody’s upkeep rather than just yours

    Soul-jar - that’s garbage a opponent just has to shoot the dang thing to get rid of their elves in it and you can only cast one card at a time from activation

    Bounty - the land can go into play but not the elf (hand) should have been able to bring both to play

    crown - OH NO Glistener Elf Exist the crown can turn it to a one hit wonder

    venom - ankle Shanker is just a pest when play against so atleast this doesn’t grant first strike but that second part is scary since that’s pretty much Zulaport Cutthroat for elf deaths
