So I read today's Magic Story
Jace did not punish Azor enough for making Ravnica the way it is
@DialMforMara "I can literally force azor to provide any amount of repartitions, at least to the people of ixalan. I can make this right.
Or I could just make him go into exile without materially fixing any of the vast problems he created. That works too"
@Lanceleoghauni Of course, it's entirely possible that any attempt to force Azor to actually make reparations would make things worse
I still want to turn him over to the Gruul
@DialMforMara I maintain that the magic story would be better if ajani replaced Jace. Or one of the ladies but I don't know enough about them to be sure.
@Lanceleoghauni I want The Adventures of Tamiyo's Story Circle.
What's Narset been up to all this time?
@DialMforMara seriously. More tamiyo plz
@Lanceleoghauni Known Story Circle members:
All of these. Also probably undead Elspeth (good-aligned zombie knight planeswalker anybody?). And maybe my fanwalker who's an interplanar mailman.
@DialMforMara man I still need to figure out a name and a story for my poor WU leonin astrologian boy.
@Lanceleoghauni I haven't figured out what colors the mailman is yet. Probably WG or WUG because his magic is about sense of direction and knowing where things are.
I've also got a WU walker who left the Azorius to become a therapist
@DialMforMara mine weaves the light of stars into steel and glass. Currently suffering from all the PTSD from watching mirrodin literally die before his first 'walk
My theory is that Bolas wants to use the guildpact to do the same thing he was trying to do with the maelstrom on Alara.
And we don't actually KNOW what he was trying to do there, just that it required a convergence of all possible balanced combinations of mana color. But he apparently had reason to believe that it would restore him to old-walker power levels.
Why not spend a spark to restore a damaged walker?
Obviously he doesn't succeed, but also obviously not all the good guys get out of this unscathed. And Jace is the obvious fall guy, since this more his fight than anyone else's.
It would also explain why Bolas wants loosely-allied-walkers running guilds for him: he could probably do whatever he needs done with just the Eternals, but he doesn't know how many sparks he'll need to eat to charge himself up.
He wants as many walkers on Ravnica as possible, with the Immortal Sun to keep them put, till he's got what he wants.
I'm sure he thinks that's what he's doing, but Jhoira's gonna have some things to say about it.
And plus, getting the Sylex to the center of New Phyrexia is too perfect an opportunity to thematically re-do the Tempest block. They're mad if they don't bring back the new Weatherlight crew for this.
