Marit Lage had been a robust being comparable to a demi-god with a kraken-like figure which came to be imprisonned on Dominaria at some time prior to the Ice Age. The Argivian scholar Arkol thought Marit Lage had been a planeswalker, but he was wrong: she's a being of immense power, in a position to move over the planes yet not by the same means planeswalkers can. Minimal is famous about the woman life, her fate, and/or what she ended up being. It is implied that she wreaked havoc on Dominaria sooner or later ("lifetimes" ahead of the Ice Age, or "500 years back" when you look at the endless Ice), and it is obvious that she had a person following (Acolytes of Marit-Lage and Brine Shamans) also even after the woman disappearance. Throughout the Ice Age, she was frozen in the heart of a glacier. Its unknown whether she survived and exactly what happened to her or her human anatomy once the Ice Age finished.

Marit Lage might-be viewed as a predecessor to your Eldrazi animals from Zendikar. She is a Lovecraftian inspired cosmic scary, with a Kraken-like form reminiscent of the tentacled-being linked to the Cthulhu mythos, who ultimately ends up slumbering in a sizable human body of liquid while human being worshipers waits on her behalf return. In this woman is quoted as "fear Marit Lage lies thinking, perhaps not dead", a direct reference to Lovecraft's famous range "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn", which approximately means "inside the home at R'lyeh, lifeless Cthulhu delays thinking." Marit Lage demonstrably has many similarities with the Eldrazi, (just like the capacity to move between the airplane whilst not being a planeswalker, becoming inactive and establishing a cult dedicated to awakening all of them, etc.), simply because they had been empowered because of the exact same source.

She but has its own crucial variations that differentiates her from them: she actually is consistently referred to as "she", while the Eldrazi tend to be genderless; this woman is known as "a fantastic mage" and "a strong sorceress", whilst eldrazi are not proven to exercise miraculous; she's a being of black colored mana even though the eldrazi are involving colorlessness; the woman physical type is the woman real human anatomy although the eldrazi "project" their appearance on real planes from the Blind Eternities; the book The Eternal Ice tells us that Marit Lage is weaker than a (pre-mending) planeswalker whilst eldrazi are designed for destroying and reshapping an entire plane and it's inhabitants (the closest feat would be the Nine Titans destroying Phyrexia).
