We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Immortal Sun

From MTG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Immortal Sun is a powerful item hidden in Orazca, an ancient metropolis hidden in the uncharted jungles of Ixalan.[1] The Immortal Sun is rumored to be more valuable and powerful than any other artifact in existence, promising boundless wealth, the strength of empire, command over nature, and eternal life.[2]

The Immortal Sun once belonged to the vampiric kingdom that would one day form the Legion of Dusk on the continent of Torrezon, where it was kept in a hidden monastery.[3] The power of the artifact inspired the envy of its neighbours and soon, hostile forces under the leadership of Pedron the Wicked attacked the monastery. The Sun was taken up by an - as yet unidentified- winged entity and brought across the sea to the continent of Ixalan.[3] Now the vampires are coming to retrieve it. They pray its power will allow the hopes of the church to be fulfilled and eternal life be available to all without the need to subsist on the blood of the wicked. Meanwhile the Brazen Coalition also seeks this ancient prize. They think it may be the key to returning to Torrezon and driving out the Legion of Dusk to reclaim their ancestral lands.

The merfolk River Heralds were tasked by the the Last Guardian to defend the Golden City and the Immortal Sun, and believe that no one should control its power. To protect its secrets, they only kind of know where the city is, but not the exact location. They’ve been making sure no one gets there for centuries.[1][4] As of recently, one of their own, Kumena, has gone against the wishes of the rest of his people and gone in search of the artifact himself, hoping to use it to kill the outsiders.

The history of the Immortal Sun is the history of its misuse by mortals.[4] Some believe that the search for the artifact will lead to a catastrophe.
