Something that I recently noticed is that there's a new enchant in the game called soul speed for your boots. It basically makes you go super fast when walking on soul sand and when you sprint on it, you can see particles with faces leaving the block proving the soul theory in minecraft.

Theory: In the last episode we learned that the evokers made skeletons and zombies. And the skeletons are in the nether. What else is in the nether? Soul sand. The evokes made the skeletons follow the ancient builders to claim the souls in the soul sand and give back to the evokers.

What if lapis is also like steroids? Vindicators are super strong after the lapis implant, evokers use the lapis to fuel their magic, and pillagers use it to enchant.

Matpat made a paradox, "i'l netherite a catchy phrase here." But if you'll never write one, then that means you didnt write that, buy that means you do write that catchy phrase, PARADOX!

Ooooooor about the blue eyes they could have genetically modified some of their Steve recreations with the lapis for the nose because they would want to make them matching with themselves. But listen Steve has blue eyes naturally and a woodland mansion is really far away from a village yes the illagers do catch villagers and with their own Steve recreations they made vindacaters and since evokers have power they could brainwash some of the ancient builders to have vindacaters and their Steve recreations are there slaves and have no choice but to obey the illagers.

I have a theory on the iceloger the iceloger was exiled because they practiced magic with lapis lazuli and ice he attacked other villager to experiment on them soon he was exiled from village he later built his iceloger fortress and performed magic there and then he met other exiled villagers and that's when they raided the tundra village ( yes I believe the iceloger appears on raids only if it is a tundra village ) and now finally the icelogers attacks : it can throw snowballs at you then he would use his magic to summon a ice slab and drops it on your head which creates the frostbite effect where your stunned and your character face is blue you can take damage in this effect like other harmful effects

I'm pretty sure you know about this already but vexs changes their attack mode and friendly mode When they're in a attack mode they have a red-ish-pink in their design that could be because they wanna break through the control of the evil and don't actually wanna attack the player Love your videos keep them up^^ (Sorry my English is bad)

Maybe the vindicators aren’t trying to vindicate themselves. Maybe the evokers considered them “vindicated” from their villager ways that evokers disliked.

I know someone has definitely already said this but Jack Torrence isn't "innocent", per se. He'd already broken his son's arm after coming home drunk and angry. So he'd already displayed negative attributes, thus allowing him to be corrupted.

Theory: the totems of undying are villager souls trapped in totems to prolong the lives of the illagers. They even look like villagers. Obviously there’s some energy lost in the transfer so that’s why you don’t heal fully but the player can use these trapped souls to give themselves a second chance at life, absorbing the energy to continue living

(You don't have to put this in) I have a theory like yours.....but....can you please add this to something the illahJers (sorry if I got that wrong I can't spell good) are doing in their mansions. There is a lantern called the "soul lantern" ,and you doing theses theorys on them messing with souls is telling me they probably made those as well..... Just think about it. The soul lanterns are blue and glow less than the normal lanterns. In fact they make sounds (sometimes) when around them. The sounds to me kinda sound like....breathing.....kinda like scared breathing... So I think that the illahJers were putting the souls that they didn't use to make the vex in the touchs and lanterns. That is my mini theory that turned really long. Thank you for reading! (P.s. Love your channel!)

I've personally never understood when people get angry at MatPat for coming up with a theory. If he makes a few leaps in logic in a theory, who cares? Obviously his theories should make sense, and he generally does a good job of that, but if he makes a theory you don't agree with, what's with the hate? IDGI!

Since the Illagers are a cult that worships the Builders, could they be trying to force their civilisation to improve, especially after the Builders removed themselves from the villagers? In a sort of “they were right all along” way? Especially after the disappearance of the Ocean Towns. They’re sort of aThanos cult; they see that people dissociated in order to evolve society and moved to other worlds and built machines that improved security. They hear that the Ocean Towns have disappeared and their world is sinking basically. And the normal Villagers are repeatedly attacked and need to rely on the strength of the Builders TO THIS DAY. They themselves propose a plan to rescue themselves and are subsequently removed from society because it is immoral and cruel. They know about the existence of magic, or at least control of the world around them, after growing up with Iron Golems. So they dig further. They know Lapis Lazuli has magical factors and so they try to “enlighten” or strengthen themselves through implanting it in their heads - to elevate their mind to that of a God. But since there are a limited number, they cannot risk it. So they use Villagers. [Speech about Human Transmutation ensues] Their replica of the strongholds’ portal rooms could be a plan or visualisation - for a portal of their own. Maybe they plan to go to the end? To rediscover their lost brothers or to develop their magic thru the rare elements and forces present there.
