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.

Rabiah the Infinite is a collection of one thousand and one originally similar planes, all refracted off of the original Rabiah during the Thousandfold Refraction. The planes have since developed independently of each other. One, known as Dark Rabiah, has been taken over by sinister forces and is as evil a place as even Phyrexia.

Rabiah scale[edit | edit source]
Mark Rosewater stated that Rabiah will likely never be revisited in a Standard-legal set, due to the fact that it is not Wizard's own intellectual property. Continued prompting on this subject led him to create the Rabiah Scale, as a planar equivalent of the Storm Scale, on which Rabiah holds the highest (least likely) rank by definition.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Outside of its plane card, Rabiah is only referred to by name in the flavor text of Sorceress Queen and Suleiman's Legacy. Although Sorceress Queen was printed in Arabian Nights, only its Fifth Edition reprint has flavor text.
