I had an idea for a world in which clockwork automation had progressed to the point that nothing living in a traditional sense was left. Imagine Esper advanced all the way to their goal of a world made of etherium, or the original Argentum "unpolluted" by Memnarch and later Phyrexia. The entire plane is clockwork; the main purpose in life of the people living there is to create the perfect clock. Since the people are clockwork, they refer to themselves as clocks, so their real goal is to complete (not compleat!) the world's mechanism. Because the beings are artificially made (by "clockmakers," appropriately enough), they shouldn't posses the spark. However, Venser comes across the plane and discovers a clock with the spark. This begs the question of whether the inhabitants are actually living beings. They believe that they are, but most Planeswalkers don't. Venser must now discover the truth, or if it even matters. This story takes place between the Mending and Scars of Mirrodin block.
When I came up with the setting, it was an anti-progress story in the style of Frankenstein, but set in the ironic fittings of Steampunk. While it certainly could be a cautionary tale, that's more appropriate to a different storyline, which I won't go into here. This story is an actual Steampunk story. Unfortunately, I probably won't create a full set, though I can certainly map out a block outline. The mechanical themes of this block seem to already overlap those of my main set, The Oncoming Storm, which implies a separate problem. For now, I'll simply create a smattering of card ideas.
