For the Glory of Phyrexia by ZeroDevil For the Glory of Phyrexia by ZeroDevil
"I believe many worlds will bow to Phyrexia. Mirrodin is merely the first."
—Sheoldred, Whispering One



In short, I have been EVIL lately.

What happens when you cross MLP:FiM's changlings with Magic:The Gathering's New Phyrexia?

Simple; you get Chrysalis contaminated with Phyrexian oil. >XD

End of story; the Changlings already look like something that clamored their way up out of Phyrexia's specimen vats. I figured I'd just go ahead and mix the two together to finalize it.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if someone who worked on MLP played Magic:The Gathering.

Hm... What is your favorite color of New Phyrexians?  I personally like the Red Phyrexians.  They are still all for the Great Work of spreading influence, but more passive about it, even with their passion for work.  After all, they allow the survivors of Mirrodan to take refuge in the Forge, so long as none of them encroach and ask too much of the 'hospitality'.

Urabrask is definitely strange when it comes down to things. Red seems the most hospitable, but when it comes down to it I rarely use red phyrexian cards in any of my decks; I usually run a black/green infect deck in-game.

When it comes to ideology, I can side with the reds, although the majority of my mindset sits with the Progress Engine and Jin-Gitaxias, the Core Augar. The idea of using science to further the whole of Phyrexia seems like a good idea, and to make the situation better, I also study computer science in real life. Jin-Gitaxias and I have very similar goals; using technology to replace flesh, and using research and development in order to better things. We differ in the sense that I have a sort of "perpetual goal" in that I still have a goal to reach (using tech to replace flesh, and I'm talking in real life, not in fiction) but it would be a continuous thing. Once the first bits of cybernetics would be completed, the trick would be mass producing them, and then following it up with the rest of the planned parts until the entire body was machine. After that, it'd be a perpetual drive to improve the machinery and make upgrades ad infinitum.

Also, I don't really approve of life-threatening vivisection operations. I prefer to only test on cell cultures and already-removed organs (although dissecting already-dead specimens doesn't bother me too much).

Ah, the Core Augur... I think he's the most powerful of the bunch.  :D

Jin-Gitaxias seems to know quite a great deal about things, even looking beyond the power aspect. He's essentially the ultimate researcher, but the problem, from my perspective, is that he's willing to perform experiments on live organisms (well, then again this is Phyrexia; that's kind of an expectation amongst all the colors of it).

Yeah, all the Phyrexians have that mentality... I think the worst one for the Great Work is Sheoldred the backstabber.  Vorinclex, for his Social Darwinism, is weeding out weaklings so the Great Work can continue without a weak link.  Elesh Norn is the recruiter, Jin-Gitaxias is the planner, Vorinclex is the trainer, Urabrask is the builder, and Sheoldred... betrays.  A lot.

Ironic that, even though Norn is the white faction, which mainly delves into faith and loyalty, her purposes are entirely self-serving. Vorinclex's method essentially seems almost lazy to me because he's leaving almost all the R&D to pure randomness and chaos rather than any method of reliable testing. Sheoldred and her ilk... I don't even know why they're there. They don't do anything productive and really just tend to usurp power for their own personal gain. Urabrask I'm not sure of, but then again, no one is.

The Progress Engine however, now that seems to be well-organized faction devoted to making Phyrexia better at what it does; compleat and expand other plains.

Yeppers.  :D  Leave the research to Glissa, in Vorinclex's case.  As for Sheoldred... I quite agree.

Huh. Looks like I have favorited your work before.

Now what was that one lesson about individuals being connected before they even meet each other? XD

The one in Cutie Mark Chronicles I believe. X3
