After spending time tracking the history of Magic, the players are set to return their focus to the present. Phyrexia: All Will Be One is set to be released as the newest standard set for Magic: The Gathering. The upcoming set is most likely to shift its sight onto the plane of Phyrexia and narrate the story of five Phyrexian praetors that have slowly integrated themselves back into the Magic Story.
In early 2023, Magic: The Gathering continues its four-part Phyrexian storyline with the premier set of Phyrexia: All Will Be One. As the name suggests, this set will take you on a trip into the belly of the beast, to the sinister plane of New Phyrexia itself. It would be great to see black wastelands of scrap, gleaming white spires, and rivers of molten slag in this inhospitable world of metal monsters.
The soon-to-be-arriving set is making everyone excited. In some news, the makers have confirmed that this set will feature plenty of proliferate, poison, and an enormous helping of the Phyrexian creature type.

What is the Storyline of MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One?
The makers in the 2022 Wizards Presents showcase stated that in this game, the villain side will get stronger. It is pretty evident that it is the set where the Phyrexians’ plans will come to execution before a massive showdown in March of the Machine marks the finale of this storyline.
Expect to see those tentacle creatures, which are nothing but the branches of what Phyrexia calls its invasion tree, Realmbreaker. From March of the Machine artwork, it appears that in that set Realmbreaker will be the one to begin smashing into planes throughout the multiverse.
The heroes will be trying to take their newly forged Sylex superweapon and dive through the multiple layers of Phyrexia to reach Realmbreaker’s Seedcore and blow it up. According to a few reports, this new game will also have a whole new world to show, featuring nine spheres to explore, from the tangled copper wilderness of the Hunter’s Maze to the spooky cathedral-filled Fair Basilica. Furthermore, a total of five planeswalkers will be compleated in this game.
