Three Legendary Eldrazi

~
"By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes."
- Quote from the three weird sisters from Shakespeare's Macbeth.

From the article today on Wizards, titled Gods and Monsters by Doug Beyer, 'Horrifying Things Come in Threes'.


"There are three legendary Eldrazi creatures in Rise of the Eldrazi, and a brood lineage of other Eldrazi creatures styled around each of the three legends. We had known that there would be three of them for a while; we had been preparing a supplementary style guide for the block's dramatic third act, complete with an entirely new set of concept illustrations. The look of each brood lineage lines up with the legend that spawned it; I'm excited for you to see what our artists came up with when Rise of the Eldrazi releases.

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is one of the legendary Eldrazi.

The second is called Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre.

The third, the largest and most powerful legendary Eldrazi of them all, has not yet been announced."

Sprinkle in some flavour now to prime the speculation engine . . .

Emeria / Kamsa: diety of the Heavens : Unknown Eldrazi (?)

Ula / Mangeni: diety of Water : Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

Cosi / Talib: diety of the Earth : Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

"The Three shall [return], and the Eye [of Ugin] shall produce its [Ghost]fire, and the [Eldrazi] shall Rise, and this Time no Soul shall [ascend/perish/escape?]"
- Notes found near the Crypt of Agadeem, trans. Anowon the Ruin Sage

Now, some flavour about potential Planeswalkers in Rise of the Eldrazi . .

"Three powerful planeswalkers - a dragon called Ugin, a stone-shaping lithomancer about whom little is known, and a vampire known as Sorin Markov - came to Zendikar's aid, but even they could not destroy the Eldrazi."

We may be looking at a draconic planeswalker type such as a Sarkhan Vol variant as well as possibly a new one 'Giddeon' a white or white-blue planeswalker.
