Scars of Mirrodin, Reflections of Phyrexia

Here are all the flavor and storyline guides for the backstory for the Scars of Mirrodin, Mirrodin Besieged, and New Phyrexia sets.  These were released in 2010-2011, so there may be gaps and things missing at this point.  Please comment if anything else can be added.

Welcome to Mirrodin!  World of Metal, created by Karn, planeswalker of Dominaria.  Mirrodin has been infected by the Phyrexian oil, spread by Karn himself, likely from the corruption still present in the phyrexian heartstone within him, given by Urza Planeswalker, once owned by Xantcha. 

Three planeswalkers gather- Here are the three sets of webcomics!

Dark Discoveries

Scars of Mirrodin:
Convincing Elspeth and Venser to aid him, Koth, a native of Mirrodin, returns to his home plane to join the battle against newly forming Phyrexian forces.  Elspeth had faced Phyrexians as a child on her homeworld, which was invaded as well.  Venser, a native of Dominaria, had lived in their ruins and aided in the Mending with Teferi.  He was still working on interplanar portal and teleportation devices.
