Urabrask Returns in MTG Streets of New Capenna as Third

Urabrask: New Phyrexia’s red-aligned praetor is Urabrask, the Hidden. As his name implies, his reasons were hazy for much of the plot, making him the most enigmatic praetor.

Phyrexians have gradually resurfaced in the post-War of the Spark plotline, initially with Vorinclex in Kaldheim. In addition, Urabrask, the red-aligned Praetor, will make his third appearance in Magic: The Gathering’s forthcoming set, Streets of New Capenna. The Neon Dynasty featured Jin-Gitaxias. This version of Urabrask keeps haste, which aids Red’s tactics in drawing more cards and finishing the game.


Description: Urabrask

Text quotes seem to imply his goals during the Phyrexian/Mirran War (and possibly currently) were to transform Mirrodin into a form he believes perfect, similar to Jin-Gitaxias in objective but very different in method and likely outcome. Like Jin-Gitaxias, he refers to “Grand Evolution” instead of “Great Work,” though whether he truly disagrees with Phyrexian language remains uncertain.

Concerning New Phyrexia

When Phyrexia conquered Mirrodin, Urabrask enabled the Mirran survivors to take refuge in the furnace layer of the plane, which he controlled. This was owing to his alignment with the color of emotion and freedom, which provided him with enough empathy to prevent him from (actively) destroying the Mirrans. This, along with a disdain for the other Phyrexian groups, prompted him to isolate the Furnace Layer of the plane from the others. With the exception of the blue-aligned Progress Engine, who was anxious about it, they didn’t appear to care either.

Elesh Norn inevitably razed his domain, despite the Mirran Resistance’s retreat to mountain hideouts, far from Elesh Norn’s reach.

New Capenna’s streets

Tezzeret had made an unusual friend in Urabrask, whom he brought to New Capenna to double-cross Norn. However, the Planar Bridge took its toll on him, separating his organic components from his flesh and leaving him severely damaged. After recovering in New Capenna for a few weeks, Tezzeret decided to return home; meeting Vivien Reid to ask her to bring Halo and Elspeth Tirel so that Halo’s presence would turn the war against New Phyrexia in their favor.

New Phyrexia is about to undergo a revolution. The fire that ignited a revolution will be freedom tempered in a fiery furnace – at least, that was Urabrask’s secret wish. Prophetic dreams — visions in fire and oil — led him here in this vast city where he believes Elspeth holds the key to understanding the future. He needs her information about it all for him to succeed.

Urabrask can access other realms through an enhanced version of the Planar Bridge as a powerful Phyrexian but this journey leaves him injured for weeks.
