Nice theme, and a really cool warm up for EMN.

Question: The cards flavor text is attributed to Ayli, so I don't think it is to far fetched to say the monument is probably build by follower of Kamsa/the eternal pilgrims who are Kor, and from what we know of this cult I would say it's actually both meant for legitimate worship, AND a warning.

Question: The Eldrazi have never been shown to have any affinity with artifacts, so why does artifact creatures also activate Flayer Drone?

Question: The Eldrazi predate colored mana, as far as we know. The devoid Eldrazi in BFZ and the colored ones in ROE are mutations from Zendikari consumption, as far as I can figure, and other colorless items also resonate with their ancient magics. See also molten nursery.
Flavor Text: "It sat there, not caring as the battle whirled around it. So many men died, and that was the only time it came to life."

Question: What kind of magic did the Kor Castigator find that allows him to bypass scions?

Question: The Castigator's weapon contains a glowing hedron, which naturally repel eldrazi, so these small fries just kinda shy away from it so they don't have to deal with him.

Question: What exactly happens to you if you've become an Eldrazi Conscript?

Question: From EMN spoilers and stories it seems like Emrakul is quite fond of twisting/empowering people or things into her service, I would say Eldrazi Conscription is that taken to it's most extrem conclusion.

Question: The calcified landscape is all that remain of the Ruins of Oran-Rief, we know the calcification means Ulamog's brood have sucked every last ounce of juice out of Oran-Rief so why can the eldazi still draw strenght from it?

Question: Calcification doesn't mean that Ulamog has taken everything from the area, just that he's passed over it and corrupted it. The land still wants to give strength to things, but since it's been corrupted by the Eldrazi, it only helps Eldrazi.
Flavor Text: And just when the Zendikari had worn it down, it sprang up again, fully ready to fight once more.

Question: In ROE, it was a zone that awakened the spawn, but now the scions are called from beyond. What instigated the change?
Flavor Text: Ulamog, the infinite Gyre

Question: The spawn already existed within the plane; the hedrons simply coaxed them out. Call Beyond seems to depict the creation of these larger scions, who herald the arrival of much larger eldrazi, possibly one of the titans.
Flavor Text: The Merfolk of Zendikar believed Ula held the power of the entire ocean. If only that were true, perhaps the plane could be saved.

Question: Why were there colored eldrazi in ROE, and what makes them different from the ones we see devoid of it?
Flavor Text: Eldrazi Displacer

Question: They were drones, which means they were likely just quickly created by the Eldrazi's presence by mixing with Zendikar's natural abundance of mana, whereas the devoid cards are the same mixing, but with far more time. It's a question of time.
Flavor Text: "Oh, you fought one too? When did you end up?"

New theme: Eldritch Moon, now that the whole set's been revealed
Question: Why do the zombies in the noosegraf mob get stronger when they're on their own? Going from a +1/+1 counter to a 2/2 zombie. (Sidenote: That card is bonkers in Alesha EDH)

Question: The second ability, and not the delirium? I think that's supposed be him killing someone, then picking the path to his next kill, using the things immediately around him.
Flavor Text: Rats have never been the worst predator on Innistrad, so it's easy to overlook them

Question: Is the Desperate Sentry turning into the Eldrazi Horror token when it dies, or is it summoned by the death, and you just snag it?
Flavor Text: Extricator of Sin

Question: If you look at the art on Desperate Sentry, you can see tentacles chasing after him and the lamb he's so desperate to save. My interpretation is that those tentacles belong to the horror that shows up when the sentry dies; killed by the horror.
Flavor Text: He offers freedom, but not without sacrifice.

Question: More of an inquiry this time; how terrifying/awesome is it to know that Emerge is a mechanic to show giant monstrosities exploding out of smaller things?
Flavor Text: Blessed Alliance

I know chetoos have already answered Artirian_Legacy about Emerge, but I just wanted to chime in that I totally agree. Emerge seems sweet.

Question: Galvanic bombardment is you shoting a Geist in a creatures face, each time after the first said Geist gets more and more angry at being weaponised and so does more and more damage, pray it never escape your Geist rig.

Q: You probably sacrificed a goat to flip it. Also, goats are a symbol of satanism, which may or may not be relevant.

Question: She has her cathars go over nonbasic, IE strange, lands to make sure they're alright. You can't use the land while they're investigating.
Flavor Text: She no longer understood what she was fighting for, but she was fighting all the stronger.

New Theme: Theros
Question: How does the voyaging satyr's voyaging make a land untap?
