NEW PHYREXIA

Mirrodin, originally known as Argentum, was created by the Planeswalker Karn.  Mirrodin's caretaker Memnarch slowly went mad, abducting mortals from across the Multiverse to populate the plane. On this world of metal, the inhabitants brought to Mirrodin were shaped by the harsh environment and became masters of artifacts and weaponry. 

Karn was the bringer of the Phyrexian oil to Mirrodin, which began the slow process of transforming the creatures it touched deep beneath the world's surface.  Slowly losing his mind, Karn became the Father of Machines and the leader of Phyrexia.  The slow spread soon became an active campaign to alter, or compleat, the world of Mirrodin.  The Mirrans fought many battles, but they soon were overwhelmed by the Phyrexian forces. 

Even the Planeswalkers Koth, Elspeth, and Venser could not turn the tide, and Venser sacrificed his life to restore Karn to sanity.  But by then, not even the creator of Mirrodin could stop the Phyrexian machine. Now the Praetors—some of Karn's top lieutenants—and their factions fight for power amongst themselves while the natives struggle daily to survive.  

LEGENDARY CREATURES

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice

Atraxa marks the final victory in the Phyrexian conquest of Mirrodin. Once a Mirran angel who opposed Phyrexia's corruption, she was captured while protecting a Mirran retreat. The praetor Elesh Norn honored her tenacity with the gift of Phyrexian compleation. Jin-Gitaxias, Sheoldred, and Vorinclex all joined Elesh Norn's efforts, and Atraxa was born—a testament to Phyrexia's singular purpose.

AURIOK

As more of Mirrodin fell to the Phyrexians, many Auriok joined forces with neighboring leonin or elves. During the Phyrexian invasion, the hero Ria Ivor led a group of Auriok survivors—along with other humans and leonin—to drive the Phyrexians away from the survivor settlement of Bladehold.

NEW PHYREXIA

It came not in a fair contest of warriors, but as a wave of unstoppable slaughter. Though the Mirrans bravely resisted the onslaught from inside their own world, their efforts were for naught. Mirrodin is now New Phyrexia.
