Spoiler warning for SOI and who don't know what the clues tell you that reveal a phrase, "They came as Three", of course this has soo many meanings as far as SOI and Eldritch Moon are concerned, but I am going to focus on the meta aspect of it since Eldrazi are extradimensional beings. Now over the past year we have had printings of different new versions of the Eldrazi Titans, Emrakul, Ulamog and Kozilek, Ulamog ceaseless hunger from BFZ, Kozilek the Great Distortion from OTGW, but what we have seen yet is another version or Emrakul and where is she? Now the current storyline and cards seems to be hinting at her presence in Innistrad, and the clue that the artifact clue tokens leave behind, as well as what we know of Emrakul herself.

Let's start off with what we know of Emrakul, or formerly Known as Emeria, depicted as an Angel on the Card Forsaken Shrine, and is associsted with the element of the sky. Emrakul has the ability to manipulate and twist organic matter, now a current card in SOI that hints to her presence is Grotestue Mutation, an instant depicting what I assume is a vampire's hand into gross mutation. Now these aren't real big clues to her presence, but the Symmetry of whats going on is the real big hint.

Most of us are familiar with how the Eldrazi became trapped on Zendikar by Nahiri, Ugin, and Sorin, nahiri being the one who constructed the hedrons to attracted the Eldrazi to Zendikar in the first place. So and so time has passed, the Eldrazi break free cause of Gideon, Jace and Chandra's collective stupidity, nahiri asks Sorin to come help fix but refuses because... Well... Sorin is Sorin, while Ugin is nowhere to be found. Long story short, Gideon, Jace, and chandra kill Ulamog and Kozilek, or at least their avatars since there is unknown reprucussions as Ugin would've warned.
Now Nahiri is doing to Innistrad what she did her home plane of Zendikar, focusing all the mana she can to attract the attention of something, or Emrakul in particular.

Let us look at some of the connections that Emrakul shares with Avacyn, both are associated with the Sky and the wind, and both are worshipped as dieties, but one thing is uncertain about both their worlds. The origins of the Angels on Zendikar and Innistrad that have little to no explanation as to where they came from. So what you think?

Well it's actually very obvious when you think about it.

Tibalt is behind everything on Innistrad. He's doing all the Eldrazi and Phyrexian stuff as red herrings just so he can troll everyone.

It's confirmed since this weeks Magic Story that Nahiri has sworn to make Innistrad suffer as Zendikar suffered.

We haven't seen Emrakul on Zendikar and had big hints that it's "gone from the plane"

We also know that on the timeline Nahiri got back to Zendikar after the Eldrazi escaped the hedron prison but before the BFZ block storyline resolved, saw the ruin & swore vengeance. Seems pretty obvious that the shrine at Nephalia Drownyard is summoning something and there's sufficient timeline gap between Nahiri returning from Zendikar and the current events to put up some cluestones.

Lots of tentacles in the SOI art.

Not sure there's any correlation between Emrakul and Avacyn (highly doubt it, imo) but Nahiri drawing Emrakul to Innistrad seems legit.

I like Nahiri. She doesn't mess about with idle threats.

Gideon was not responsible for releasing the Eldrazi... it also wasn't "collective stupidity" for the others to do it. It was an elaborate plan of Bolas.

Sorin didn't refuse to come help when they were actually released. He refused to come help 1000 years ago when their bonds were weakened and some of their spawn were able to escape. He didn't get the call for help until after the problem was already solved and had just created the helvault which took a lot out of him so he wasn't capable of helping anyway.

Ugin was dead at the time or trapped in a healing chrysalis depending on which timeline you look at.

This was actually the very first piece of flavor text that was spoiled for SoI so that little "confirmation" has been around for months.

As I recall it was Chandra, Jace and Sarkhan (the presence of three walkers and then Chandra using Ghostflame in the Eye of Ugin to unlock the seal)

and then Sorin came to re-establish the seal, and used Nissa as a guide. Nissa then broke the seal completely, thinking the Eldrazi would flee Zendikar, setting them all free.

Sound about right or did I get something backwards? I wish they had timelines for this all in one place, not just across different stories.

Basically they collectively screwed up, Jace, Chandra, and Sarkhan, set the ball rolling and Nissa just screwed the pooch.
