Oneah is a country on an island in the Domains of Dominaria, east from the continent of Aerona. It lies north of Shanodin and south of Amjad, both on the same island.[1][2]


Oneah once was one of the most enlightened societies. Though famous for their martial arts, the Oneahns viewed the ownership of a bladed weapon as strictly taboo.[3] The whole country was destroyed by hordes of goblins from the Red Mountains. To the knowledge of the woman named Ayesh ni hata Kan, only she survived from the whole nation.


Oneah contained seven main cities, called the Cities of the Sun (only six are known[4]):

  • Xa-On
  • Onnirah
  • Onlish
  • Onmarakhent
  • Onnila
  • Oneah City. The capital. A beautiful city.
    • The Roof of Lights. The main temple.


It is unclear if Oneah was active during the Phyrexian Invasion, since when Sisay and Tahngarth visited the city just a few years before the Invasion, Oneah was abandoned for thirty years.

Onean scholars, clerics and soldiers are noted for their wisdom, and often quoted.
