Chromium Rhuell is Nicol Bolas' brother, and one of the winners of the Dragon War on Dominaria.
After the war, he and his life partner Piru became the servants of a planeswalker named Geyadrone Dihada. She summoned them to fight Dakkon Blackblade, who tried to control him and force him to kill Piru. Chromium was strong enough to overpower Dakkon, draining most of his life away, but with Dakkon's last strength, he teleported Chromium to an unknown location, and slew Piru himself.
The next time Chromium was seen, his was in the guise of Ham, the Tickery Man, And assisted the rest of the High Council of Mors Ridge in keeping his sister, Palladia-Mors, asleep.
After this, Chromium once again served a planeswalker named Faralyn, and befriended his spellsquire, Ravidel. During the same time period, Chromium's brother, Arcades Sabboth, was summoned by Leshrac to fight Kristina, who killed the elder dragon.
That's only relevant because as the Shard of the Twelve Worlds closed, Faralyn called a meeting of planeswalkers trapped within it, at the Summit of the Null Moon. In attendance were Leshrac and Kristina, so tensions were high. To make matters worse, Faralyn had secretly betrayed them. He, Leshrac, and Tevesh Szat planned to start fighting between the people present, hoping that the death of a planeswalker would provide enough energy for them to escape the Shard. No planeswalker died, but Szat killed Chromium, who apparently was powerful enough to allow them to escape. During the battle, Ravidel was killed as well, but Kristina and her lover Taysir joined forces to return him to life. Instead of being grateful, Ravidel was furious that they saved him instead of Chromium. Ravidel plotted vengeance for ages, gradually becoming more and more insane. Eventually this would lead him into starting the Planeswalkers' War.
Ravidel took Chromium's corpse and fashioned it into what he called a Planar Barge, which he used to carry his army in while planeswalking.

I've heard it speculated that we could see shard colored, enchantment gods, much like on Theros, but more aligned with Egyptian mythology obviously.

Mtg has had many time-travel and alternate universe blocks, so think could be possible

@DasTree Commented on your deck and +1! :)
I have another nice deck that can use some suggestions. It was built as a tribute to the original format EDH and sports Palladia-Mors, the Ferrari of Magic: Overpriced, too expensive in upkeep. But still a classic that looks good and is soo nice to take for a ride.
Anyway, the deck is:
Commander / EDH
I've put in enough flying creatures, but somehow it lacks agility. More wipes? Other creatures? Let me know.

@bigpappyj Ah I see. You're right, that is the more whitespread term for this kind of deck.
I guess the player who originally popularized the deck didn't care much about Wizards official color order.
"I guess it should go in order of placement on the color wheel, right?"
Yes, that's one aspect. (It used to be the only one back then in Legends. take a look at the Elder Dragons for example: Chromium or Nicol Bolas has the order we're used to, while Palladia-Mors wouldn't start with white if she was printed today.)
It's easy once you understand the idea. As a reference, look at the color wheel on the card's back. When choosing the order, there are two things to consider:
- Start at the top (white) going clockwise: ----- (W-U-B-R-G-W)
- Search for the cycle with the lowest distance among used colors.
That way, throughout all combinations we always have the same amount of occurenced where colors "rank" first or second.
So for example, if the colors are white and black (), you would go W-U-B, as this has only one other color in between whereas B-R-G-W has two colors in between.If the colors were white and red however (), you'd go R-G-W, as otherwise there would be U and B in between: W-U-B-R
To get back to our green-centric Elder Dragon: Palladia-Mors has white, green, and red in her. So checking the color wheel order, we want to choose the order RGW (W-U-B-R-G-W) - as opposed to WRG (W-U-B-R-G-W), which has each color adjacent to each other unlike if we started with W, skipped blue and black, and then added green and red.
