What if they did a set – nay, a block! – in which the Eldrazi (the Cthulhuloid menaces from the Blind Eternities currently menacing Zendikar) were attacked by the Phyrexians (the Borg-like villains that lately invaded and assimilated Mirrodin, creating New Phyrexia, and who have haunted the dreams of Dominaria for ages)?
