Wizards: Sympathetic nonbinary planeswalker!

Me: ooh, you've made me care again

Wizards: Awesome plane based on Norse mythology!

Me: YES PLEASE gimme that good squirrel content

Wizards: oh, and the Phyrexians are here

Me: never fucking mind, I should know better than to expect you to use a setting to its full potential

@DialMforMara this was me and:
cool D&D-ish adventure world: focus on eldrazi
creepy gothic world: focus on eldrazi
to a secondary extent, return to the biggest lore world where mtg's had the most setting: not really showcasing the world to an unfamiliar player

@mycroft and
cool Egyptian world: Bolas Bolas Bolas

there's are many reasons why my favorite Magic format these days is @ajanionthespot's D&D game, and this is one of them

@DialMforMara
at least iirc we had sets that explored the setting without too much outside influence. I'll give ancient egypt world a pass, as well as city world again again, and the first part of cool wedge clans world before it became oops all dragons

pirate dinosaur colonialism world was cool I thought, and hanging out in fairy tale land was a nice breather (though it feels like it really wouldn't been better spread out over two sets)

@mycroft no coincidence that Ixalan was my favorite block in all the time I've been playing (which is just since the start of the Gatewatch Era)

@DialMforMara Saaame, I’d love to check back in with New Phyrexia, but it needs a set of its own to stretch out and play with the theme of “a circular firing squad of horrible people with no more external goals”

@orb_warded_kor_warlord problem is, they do have external goals. Which is how Vorinclex comes to be on Kaldheim.
