Welcome back to Minecraft Theory, where we do deep dives into anything and everything Minecraft! Honestly Theorists, there is SO MUCH to explore in this game. In my search for theory fodder on Creepers, Endermen, and all other manner of creatures, one thing stood out. The Illagers. You know, the exiled magic folk who seem to be up to some rather... interesting experiments. What are they doing and how might it change Minecraft FOREVER if they succeed in their plot? Let's find out!

If lapis experiments are the reasons why they got kicked out, then isn't it weird how the villagers can trade you ENCHANTED STUFF that REQUIERS LAPIS? Or what if the villagers were jealous of their knowledge?

this is kind of reminiscent of the Wither video, where they tried bringing back their dead, but only succeeded in creating a creature that would slaughter them. Maybe the illagers were also ancient builders, who, at the same time as their nether-faring compatriots, also tried to dabble in life and death, whether it be to bring back their dead, or repopulate themselves due to the amount of people they lost to the Nether and the Wither. Instead, they only succeeded in creating more monsters, and were exiled.

it also connects to the Ancient Builders theory because the Ancient Builders supposedly escaped to the End from the Wither, and the mansions have replicas of the End portal. What if the Illagers were Ancient Builders who also split off from the main group, similar to the villagers who decided to live sedentary, peaceful lives thanks to the creation of the Iron Golems. What if the Illagers decided that, rather than running away from the Wither and the death and destruction it caused, they would try to fix it, and wanted to create more people, not only for added hands, but to repopulate their world. They parted ways at the mansions, where the other group actually planned for their travel to the end, which is why they have the replica portal. And so, they created the totems to save themselves from the Wither, Ravagers to help fight it off, and finally attempted to *successfully* create life of their own, unlike their Nether-faring friends. However, their experiments at creating life were unsuccessful, instead resulting in a zombie plague, and the Villagers exiled them from their towns, while the other Ancient Builders had already left for the End, leaving only ruined portals behind. Just a theory; a game theory!

This theory coincided well with Minecraft Dungeons & the fact that in MC:D the Illagers are putting Villagers in cages.

OMG what if they actually created a very powerful being,dteve accidentally? But not knowing what to do we attacked them so they made another version of Steve, the zombies and then they tried another and another and another and another creating all of the creepy pastas I'm the game like herobrine, faceless Steve ,null, entity 303, green Steve etc etc but they only attacked them ... So that might be the story of Steve/Alex and other creepy pastas

Theory: Steve is a god. The Illagers are trying to recreate steve, and in one of their statue rooms they have a lapis lazuli block inside of a head right where to brain should be because they know it carries god-like powers and they're rebuilding a steve. Would explain how Steve can carry an inventory of gold blocks and sprint, or break stone and other materials with his bare hands

I play minecraft every once in a while but every time I generate a world I always find a woodland mansion. One world had 2-3 mansions. I play it on xbox so I'm not sure if that influences the rarity of the mansions. I didn't know they were considered rare because I almost always have one in my world

Wait, what about the Iron Golems? When compared to the ravengers arn’t they technically the same? An armored giant built specifically to assist the people it lives with? Therefore that means villagers posses the same powers that the illagers have right? Or did the illagers build the iron golems in early experiments before getting kicked out of the village?

Hey mat you said you believe wither skeletons are past builders who's souls were taken from the netherack after passing away. And they only spawn in forts. But soul sand is everywhere so withere skeletons should be to. I think the piglin who die the netherack takes their souls and makes them zombie pigmen. Think about that.

So, many months later I add if it hasn't been already, villagers and illagers could possibly have extra problems because the villagers deep down remember the Wither and what happened last time they played with life and death. Just a little extra fire for the hostility between them

The Illagers were trying to bring back the ancient civilization of builders. And it looks like they succeeded somehow, which explains how Steve is spawned in the first place. They are trying to recreate the ancient civilization of builders in order to learn their secrets. Illagers are always trying to become more powerful, and there are still things that they don't understand, like how to create an end portal. Also, what if that ancient sea fairing civilization didn't completely die out and turn into Drowneds. What if the Pirates migrated inland and evolved into the Pillagers. It would explain why they are still raiding villages.
