M:TG.COM - A Planeswalker's Guide to New Phyrexia, Part 1

04-06-11 - Planeswalker's Guide - New Phyrexia - Part 1 - Phyrexia Week - Savor the Flavor - Magic Creative Team

Planeswalker's Guides. This is the good stuff. Since this is Mirrodin no more, we get one for the last set in the block.  In Part 1 we go into the White aspect of New Phyrexia. And considering that the set New Phyrexia is 90% Phyreixan faction and only 10% Mirran, the article is appropriate mostly about the Phyrexian version of religion (or religions) and everything that accompanies that.

Is this going to be the most interesting article? Elsh Norn has been bandied about as key artwork to represent the set. And I'm a sucker for Phyrexians and their belief systems. I love that there are actually three religions that various Phyrexians follow. It embodies the divided nature of the new Phyrexians as a whole. I very much hope that Karn becomes the new Father of Machines in reality. What a fall from grace. What a failure for Urza. I love it!

This articles covers pretty much everything you wanted to know.

And might I add that it's very nice that even the article background itself is colored the same as the physical Planeswalker's Guide to Alara. A very nice touch.

It's hard to imagine the other colors being as interesting as this one, but bring on Parts 2-5! (And more if you have it!)
