So, I'm confused. Did you make an account just to role play as a Phyrexian version of Kasmina in various threads?

Some 2x2 details from Eye For Details:

There are no Set Boosters , and 2x2 does not seem to have any full-art cards (much less receiving two art cards per pack , which would really be the only way to justify the egregious price tag) .

Of the ten 3-color identities , only "Sacrifice" , "Prowess" consist of one word , the others are two words .

Of the cards shifted from Rare to Mythic , there is one each for the Four Metagame Walkers , plus Food Chain ("We·re making a paperchain!") for PROJECT STRIX . All the other Mythic-to-Rare translations are downgrades .

The box art for Collector Boosters features a Garbage Elemental (GE) , as if to say , "One way or another , it all winds up in the garbage anyway ."

The mechanic for Cryptic Spires involves changing the nature of the cards by marking them with a pen . This is a reference to the blue squiggle on the right side of the word DECKMASTER on the back of the card , which was from an accidental pen mark that made its way onto the card back in 1993 when Alpha was first produced and couldn·t be removed without voiding every set that came before it (because having two different card obverses would make it possible to count cards) .

There are a total of five (5) obscured details in ARK .

Bear in mind that the Slivers were created by a Phyrexian Evincar on a Phyrexian subplane . The original Slivers already are Phyrexian .

As for a war between the Sliver-Phyrexians and the Eldrazi , i would go ahead and say DEFINITELY .

Ok . Hear me out on this , and try to follow along with this chain of causality . Sa i·m putting this in Speculation because i·m speculating , here .

I·m trying to use my best English here ok ! English is not my first language .

So we·ve got KayaKing , and after that is LaCrosse , and it goes Marathon , Netball , Offroading .

Muraganda is a plane that was teased waaay back in Future Sight (2007 May 04) with the card Muraganda Petroglyphs , showing cave paintings , and Imperiosaur , featuring a dinosaur .

Muraganda Petroglyphs https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=509585

Imperiosaur https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=509576

It was later featured in the supplementary product Planechase (2009 Sep 04) .

Feeding Grounds https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=423604

Both Future Sight cards were reprinted in Time Spiral Remastered , which came out just last year (2021 Mar 19) .

So , what we know about Muraganda is that it takes place in Dino World .

Now ! We·ve got Neon Genesis Kamigawa (2022 Feb 18) , which , with cards like Okiba Reckoner Raid , featured literal Biker Rodents from a Martial World (recognizing the Martial nature of the Samurai caste , and the root word of Martial is Mars) , and the box art for Booster Packs featured a 1:1 replica of the Biker Mice From Mars villain The Executioner (S01E01 @ 18:39) . So there·s that !

And then , for Streets of New Capenna (2022 Apr 29) (which , as recently as 2020 Oct , was supposed to be Streets of New Celesta) , the set symbol is a 1:1 replica of Throttle·s tattoo , from Biker Mice From Mars .

Streets of New Capenna https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/mtgsalvation_gamepedia/images/6/61/SNC_expansion_symbol.png

Throttle·s Tattoo https://www.deviantart.com/throttle-shrine/art/Throttle-s-Tattoo-7366223

Following? Ka . Ok . Let·s go . It·s time to Rock and Ride .

In the Biker Mice From Mars episode Biker Knights of the Round Table (S03E01/2 @ 37:26) there is a shot of the Four Protagonists getting into a time machine . The time machine displays a Royal Crest (KayaKing) , a The Cross (LaCrosse) , and then a Brontosaurus (Marathon) .

Given this exact chain of causality , i think that Marathon is going to be Muraganda !

Now ! That said ,

Wizards loves teasing future sets . With cards like Upriser Renegade featuring a girl with a 1920·s Pompadour haircut in Neon Genesis Kamigawa , there are always cards in each set that give hints about what the next set will be . So there should be StoneAge-looking stuff in the most recent sets , right? Ka . Lemme load up Gatherer .

In Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur·s Gate , there·s:

· Cultivate , which shares a similar art style to Muraganda Petroglyphs https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=567638

· Draconic Muralists (Mura) https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=563107

·Propaganda (Ganda) https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=567547

· and Wayfarer·s Bauble , which has petrified dinosaur claw in it https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=563227

And then in Double Masters 2022:

· Wall of Omens features a cave fresco covered in vines . https://www.magicspoiler.com/mtg-spoiler/wall-of-omens-4/

· Terminate features a Pterodon . https://www.magicspoiler.com/mtg-spoiler/terminate-4/

· Allosaurus Shepherd features an Allosaurus (in a non-Jungle setting) . https://www.magicspoiler.com/mtg-spoiler/allosaurus-shepherd-3/

There·s also a card with a Tricerotops sed that one·s from Ixalan .

Sa i think the Allosaurus Shepherd is significant because Ixalan was the other dinosaur set and it took place on a Tropical Island .

Alright ! Let·s go from Speculation Territory right into Baseless Speculation .

It is my personal prediction that Muraganda is going to be a Super Mario Bros. set .

While the original Mario Bros games for the NES only had King Koopa and the Koopa Troopas in it , Super Mario Bros. for the SNES took place in ... a Dino World . There were loads of bad guys that were dinosaurs , and the landscape , of the first couple worlds at a minimum , were designed to look prehistoric .

That·s just my prediction , tho ! Everything else , the evidence is laid out above .

So yeah ! Marathon . Muragand .

Ah .

And with stuff like the Super Mario Bros . Movie (1993) featuring stuff like planar overlays (also covered in the Rathi overlay of Dominaria , circa Invasion (2000 Oct 02)) , and some really neat combinations of dinosaurs and technology , since Wizards loves wacky stuff like that , and with the Super Mario Bros. Movie having come out in the same year as MtG , i just feel like there·s a lot of hard rock for them to dig their Ceremonial Groundbreakers into .

Loha very different from English is .

Loha: "DhSaTBaKiK" English trans.: "Death Architecture of Ba Ki" , i.e. "Baki·s Curse"

there only one scrap of Loha on the internet is , here: https://m.soundcloud.com/coreisall/death-architecture-t-ba-ki

back in Homelands our Orders talked with WotC about using Scandinavian Aboriginal in Magic , it took them 20 years tho Kaldheim·s angels , their makeup , the weapons , the clothes , that is all us . then something happened and communications fell apart , they kept burning bridges over and over again , now we do not trust them with our culture anymore .

Somehow , i keep hearing that line over and over again , as if Izzet Team really did have a brain in a jar that was blinding people and agonizing them where they couldn·t see it in order to fuzz out recognizance .

Even in instances , like Biker Mice From Mars·s villain The Executioner being ripped 1:1 to the box art for Neon Genesis Kamigawa , the shapes of the buildings in Kamigawa being a 1:1 rip of the album art for The Outside Agency - Pacifism , the Streets of New Capenna symbol being a 1:1 rip of Throttle·s tattoo from the same show .

we keep hearing the exact same line over and over from person after person , as if the entire human species has been scrapped and appropriated for Autodog-Catco·s voxes .

June 21, 2022 12:58 a.m.

Well , the inspiration for the term Strix refers to a specific kind of person-to-person interaction . Namely , it was to recognize the necessity of people that work in high-stakes situations (e.g. a Multiversity where a critical fail during entrance exams could kill you) having to do bad things to their friends in order to survive .

The formula works on the typical "Three Strikes" (Strikes?Have Na) model , where (Including Sa or not including Sa?) if you can either turn your last strike into a positive given the outcome of a fourth action , or if you can use a fourth action to demonstrate that you had intended to deceive them for their own good , even if the person was really hard-ball about it you might be allowed back into their good graces . And if you weren·t , you could always go to Strixhaven .

Naturally , this idea caught on with the Intelligence Community , who often have to employ things like double- and triple- and even octuple-agents , hence this being a Spy anime . We·ve been seeing little quips and references here and there that suggest that there are some MtG players among the people that write Manga or produce them into Anime , yet this is the first anime to really broadcast it big and bright like this .

It shouldn·t be surprising to learn that something as kyodai as MtG influences other media . The film Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul , for instance , depicts the blue-aligned New Phyrexians casting Vivisection on Reg . New Phyrexia was 11 years ago , and MiA:DotDS came out 2 years ago , so obviously the fanbase has been there for long enough for the pipeline to be firmly established now .

June 20, 2022 1:11 p.m.

So , with Strixhaven having only just come out a year ago , and with these kinds of things having a trickle-down effect that necessarily takes a bit of time to coordinate , does anybody else find giant STRIX STRIX STRIX and PROJECT STRIX signs in media anywhere? Ka .

EDIT: The gif that i posted isn·t showing up when i reload the page , so here·s the ref on YouTuBe (@1:03): https://youtu.be/EzGs8Tm_C2g

And here·s the .gif so yu can gaze at its glory: https://c.tenor.com/lLyIUtqoBsUAAAAC/spy-x-family-spy-x-family-anime.gif

And in the anime they actually specifically call it PROJECT STRIX sooo

Whew , okay , so . Bear in mind we·re unpacking , like , 20 Years of myth here , so try to keep your dicks in your pants , okay?

Let·s see . A lot of these events are actually people disguised as other people , so there·s a few layers of onion to peel .

The 5+3 Gods of Amonkhet were the Ogdoad disguised as the Younger Ennead . That·s why there were 5 living gods and 3 dead ones , and also why they don·t line up 1:1 . Hazoret was HcoHet , that one·s for sure . Kefnet was Heka/Thoth , Oketra was supposed to be Isis and Bontu was supposed to be Nephthys . The idea being that Amon , i.e. Amun , i.e. Nicol Bolas (see also the Starcraft character) was the ringleader who poisoned the world , killed the adults , and locked the fledglings into a Crop Farm , hence the people being referred to as Ahn-Crop or This-Crop or That-Crop .

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ennead https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogdoad_(Egyptian)

Still with me? Ka . Because it goes a lot deeper .

There·s a reason why Wizards prints entire sets with names like "Conspiracy" ,

and here·s an example of another Very Difficult Embedding Puzzle they did for RTR back in 2013 , https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/making-magic/embedding-puzzle-2013-05-24

Okay , so .

Garruk is Osiris . Jace is Horus . Freyalise is Freya who is Nephthys . Bolas is Sutekh-Ra-Amon . and Isis waaas ... Ah . Jeska .

(In Egyptian myth , every year Sirius(Isis , who follows Osiris/Orion across the sky) dips below the horizon as the constellations rotate . For some 72 days a year or something , Sirius would "go into the underworld" and then emerge again months later , creating a Dying-and-Rising Cult . Osiris was also a Dying-and-Rising god , with Horus replacing him every cycle .) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dying-and-rising_deity

Hanging in so far? Ka . Because we·ve got 20 years of religious appropriation to unpack here . (For instance the Buffy and Angel cards that came out way back in Odyssey: https://buffythecomicslayer.tumblr.com/post/618941815686660096/magic-the-gathering-repentant-vampire/amp)

Basically , even if you don·t believe that the Gods are real , for sure their Cults still exist . People to this day really do do things like sacrifice goats on pentagrams of blood , that·s not an urban myth .

So , when you·ve got something like Magic: the Gathering , which has been the Multiverse World News for a couple decades now , there·s actually A LOT of stuff in MtG that maps to real-world events .

Ok . I·m not done , but i·m gonna take a break here for a second , so people can ask questions and make sure we·re all on the same page here .

y·all know that the five characters depicted in New Capenna·s "Rogue·s Gallery" are the younger five members of the Ennead , right? Ka . and that Garruk is Osiris , and that WotC has a decades-long history of taking real-life mythological figures and appropriating them with perceived impunity? Ka .

Garruk was from Nakta ("Amonkhet") from before Bolas ("Amun") took it over . See also: Aaru , Aiur .
