Core Set Legendary Creatures By Home Plane

Lore forum

Posted on Aug. 9, 2017, 9:38 p.m. by DemonDragonJ

Since I have already created threads that list commanders and planeswalkers by home plane, I shall now create a thread that lists legendary creatures who have appeared in core sets by home plane.

As with my previous lists, I shall first list the planes known to be home to at least one legendary creature who has appeared in a core set alphabetically by name, and then list each legendary creature from that plane who has appeared in a core set alphabetically by name. If that creature is from a specific region of that plane or is a member of a specific faction on that plane, I shall list that region or faction in parenthesis after their name.

Mirrodin/New Phyrexia Show

What does everyone think of this list? Is it sufficiently informative? Have I improperly labeled any creatures? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled should be on the same plane as Ob Nixilis, the Fallen (Zendikar) since that was before he regained his spark.

That's not where he originated though. He came from an unnamed "hellish plane of unending war".

Ah, I missed the bit about home plane.

I'm pretty sure Kothophed is from Dominaria

DemonDragonJ says... #8

dbpunk, where was that stated?

dbpunk says... #9

I thought it was stated in the Lilliana origins back story, that she traveled back to Dominaria to fight Kothophed.

dbpunk, I see; thank you very much, and I shall update the first post.

Are you familiar with Gattison's Obscure List of Obscure Lists? I'm thinking Gattison and others would enjoy seeing this and your other threads.

Maybe even do them up as decklists with Custom Categories for their Planes?

dbpunk and DemonDragonJ,
No, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder is not from Dominaria. Or at least that's not where he and Lili met: ".... Nicol Bolas led Liliana from his great marble hall to a plane she didn't recognize."

clayperce, thank you very much, and I shall re-adjust my first post to display that status.

Gattison says... #14

yup. this is the kind of stuff I enjoy seeing. (thanks, clayperce) =D

I'd like to add this to the List of Lists that Clay linked above, as well as your other two threads, too. So if you don't mind, please link them to me. Also, if you have or know about any other lists, please bring them to my attention.

If nothing else, thanks for your time in making this!

Gattison, here are links to my other two threads. I am very pleased that you wish to link to my threads, as doing so will help keep them active, so I shall be certain to update them whenever new commanders or planeswalkers are added to the game.

Why don't you make these into a decklist using the custom categories option to list the planes?

It would be much more stable and easier to edit than having it here on the forums.

When will the cards from Core Set 2019 be added to this website's database? I ask that because, after they are added, I wish to add the legendary creatures to this list.

DemonDragonJ says... #18

I have added the legendary creatures from Core Set 2019 to this list; if anyone happens to know from what plane Isareth, Lathliss, and Lena are, I would greatly appreciate your feedback.

Modern Horizons is not technically a core set, but there is no other list that would be suitable for the legendary creatures that that set contains, so I have added them to this list.

DemonDragonJ says... #20

With Core Set 2020 soon to be released, I have added the legendary creatures from that set to this list; unfortunately, most of them have nothing to indicate their home planes, so I have placed them in the "unknown" category. I strongly suspect that Kethis is from Fiora, due to his flavor text, but, until his home plane is explicitly stated, I shall keep him in the "unknown" category.

Today, Mark Rosewater revealed that Kaalia is from the Bant shard of Alara (obviously after the shards merged, given her color combination), so I have updated this list to reflect that status.

Due to the sheer number of legendary creatures in this list, which shall only increase with each new core set, I have given each plane its own spoiler tag. I also noticed that I had missed several creatures from Modern Horizons, so I have now added them to this list.

I shall wait until the full card list of Core Set 2021 is revealed, before I add the legendary creatures from that set to this list.

June 14, 2020 9:49 a.m.

DemonDragonJ says... #23

With the upcoming release of Core Set 2021, I have added the legendary creatures from that set to this list.

June 16, 2020 8:29 p.m.

DemonDragonJ says... #24

Jumpstart is not a core set, but I have added the legendary creatures from that set to this list, because there was no other place for them.

June 23, 2020 6:36 p.m.

DemonDragonJ says... #25

WotC has provided the stories for the legendary creatures in this set, so I shall add them to this list, soon.

June 10, 2021 10:26 p.m.

DemonDragonJ says... #26

Here is another article for the new legendary creatures in Modern Horizons 2; hopefully, I shall be able to add all of them to this list over this weekend.

I have added the new creatures from Modern Horizons 2 to this list.
