My ideal post- Magic story:

Tamiyo and Jaya realize that the reason it all went so badly is that, for millennia, planeswalkers have been self-taught loners without social structures that can prevent them from becoming evil and destructive. They recruit Jodah to help them create a school for planeswalkers on Dominaria and use Lightning Bug technology to set up relays that direct new planeswalkers to the school.

@DialMforMara Some immortal dude being an archmage on Dominaria??

@Ice_In_Disguise precisely. Jodah is nearly three thousand years old due to accidental immersion in a fountain of youth, has mastered all five colors of mana, and was the first planebound person to successfully make a planeswalker sit down and shut up. (It was Freyalise, the self-styled goddess of Dominaria's elves, and he persuaded her to end the Ice Age.) There is no better teacher for a school of planeswalkers.

@DialMforMara Huh. Cool. Thanks for always telling me lore stuff I don't know!


@Ice_In_Disguise You're welcome :D Most of this stuff, plus the best introduction to the mechanics of mana and the color pie I've ever read, is in the novels that go with The Dark and Ice Age block. Here's the first one:
