Koilos is a desert region, that was once Halcyon, the beautiful capital of the Thran Empire. By the time of the Brothers, there was little more than a few crumbling buildings and a network of caves, containing the last technological remnants of the Thran. The most important thing here was a portal in the Caves of Koilos that would lead to Phyrexia. During the War, it was the headquarters of Gix, a powerful Phyrexian demon, who manipulated both sides in the war for Phyrexia's best interests.

Urza named the place "Koilos", the old Argivian word for "secret," and Greek for "hollow."
