As Asi, he joined up with Inga Rune-Eyes and the planeswalker Kaya to hunt an extremely dangerous monster that already had caused destruction on the plane.[3] This turned out to be none other than Vorinclex, one of New Phyrexia's 's praetors. Reaching Aldergard forest, the party engaged Vorinclex who almost managed to defeat them if not for Alrund revealing himself and using his magic to create a mystical barrier between Vorinclex and Inga's people and the praetor left Bretagard, with Kaya soon following.
