I thought that was just because Niv hated Ral, personally, for being a douche who thought his physics degree made him and Niv equals.

>> No.27181749

Not really, most of them are fine. The big problem is Jace is kind of a douchy dicksmudge and Wizards fucking loves his guts because the average bumblefuck likes him the most.

Literally no block since Zendikar has had any major Nicol Bolas intervention; his involvement in NPH was so little it might as well not have been there. He's done nothing in Innistrad and RTR.

>> No.27181778

Honestly, Niv probably barely notices Ral as anything other than standard-issue guildmage. Ral has kept it a secret that he's a planeswalker, so that isn't on the table.

Really, the fact that Niv doesn't notice him is part of what rankles. Ral wants to be recognized for his achievements, but the way Niv does business is to hand out pieces of projects to people at random and then shuffle them all together.

Their market research says that Jace is the most popular planeswalker and that he is universally liked. That's why they stick him everywhere.

He's been in three non-core sets. As of Theros, so has Elspeth.

Furthermore, in terms of actually being involved in the story, there's Return to Ravnica. That's pretty much it. His entire role in Zendikar was to show up at the Eye of Ugin and briefly fight Chandra. None of the planeswalkers in Lorwyn were actually there during the storyline.

...so, like everything since Time Spiral that wasn't a repeat? Even then, I'm only discounting the repeats because they aren't introducing new settings.

Magic is a visually and flavorfully vibrant brand at the moment. The flavor of the worlds in sets is much more apparent and tied to the cards themselves than it has been at any other point in Magic's history.

You just don't like it because change is scary.

>> No.27182952

The way I interpreted it was that they don't actually add anything to the storyline by their presence. The exact same conflicts could've been included using characters from Ravnica, but instead Wizards decided that since their established Planeswalker Corps was reasonably popular, they'd just insert them to play the roles of antagonist/protagonist.

Innistrad left untouched was interesting. Humans a desperate minority, losing out to werewolves, zombies, ghosts, vampires, etc. All the spooky stuff being real in the world was neat.

There was a fluff article back around the end of Innistrad that basically read "Liliana is black because of her reckless addiction to power" and then launched into a flood of blatant metaphors that served as DEEP BACKSTORY to her current gaunt, poorly clothed physical appearance.

By the end of it Liliana was a junkie, the Chain Veil was heroin, Garruk was the abusive ex-boyfriend coming after her for giving him a VD, and Jace was the cool-headed distant but smart and thoughtul guy who works in the firm across the street from her trashy apartment and he's SO DREAMY BUT OH THEY JUST AREN'T SURE IF THEY'RE GOOD ENOUGH FOR EACH OTHER

True, but my point was that they could have had a Ravnica block about the fall of the guilds and the rise of the Gateless, just as Scars block was about the fall of the Mirrans and the rise of the Phyrexians.

The reason they did not is that people love the guilds. A lot. Guild identity is one of the biggest hooks they have, and might actually be stronger than players identifying with planeswalkers.

>> No.27183802

A lesson in spacing out cool idea, I should hope. I don't think that's an unreasonable one, especially now there's supplementary products for such things.

How does one quickly find a way to select from, say, 30 creatures/players at random?

It's a Tarmogoyf that pumps three of your other seven Tarmogoyfs.

Achived magic threads where they replaced a word from a flavor text with "dick". Hilarity ensues, especially with gems like Elvish Archdruid.

Maybe Innistrad angels are just into that style and Sorin wanted his creation to fit in.

...Yeah, still not sure if Innistrad had angels and Sorin created the greatest one or if Avacyn's the mother of all the ones we see on Innistrad.

There were sort of angels, but they rarely if ever chose to manifest

That's false, though a few more important ones are.

What exactly does that even mean? Do you draw pictures of them? Do you write stories about them? Or is it just a pairing in your head?

It's the last one automatically, with the first 2 things peppered in. When someone says they "Ship" something, they really mean "When someone brings it up, I like to imagine they're together, but it honestly is not something I really think about or remember often until it's brought up again."
