Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

3 months ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

I hadn't thought about the 'Horrible Beast' being Vorinclex - but that is an interesting thought. Vorinclex struck me during the first week's story as more primal and beast-like than cunning and sentient. Even the flavor text on the card Rotted Hystrix says "Vorinclex had no grand plan. The oil did its own work, evolving creatures into worthy predators." That being said, there are quite a few cards that reference flavor text from him, so he isn't just primal beast. If he is working as an agent of Elesh Norn, I'm sure he could be the horrible beast referenced.

Also, do you guys feel like there are a lot of similarities between Oko and Tibalt? Not design-wise, but flavorfully? I definitely think so, and think it is interesting because they occupy such different parts of the color pie.
