Notable locations[edit | edit source]

Connection with Theros[edit | edit source]

Mark Rosewater has stated that the planes showcased in Planechase (2009) and Planechase 2012 were created as potential locations for future stories. [2] However, the Greek-themed Arkhos has been rebranded to Theros, just as Mongseng was rebranded to Tarkir. [3] Rosewater has stated that bigger factors than continuity led to the name change. [4] He later stated that they couldn't clear the Arkhos name.[5] According to Doug Beyer, both planes now exist in the multiverse. [6]
