Quote from luminum canI thought TPF did it well. But then again, that was sort of half-romance-novel too. The Chandra/Gideon dynamic was pretty interesting in my opinion, compared to the relationship between, say, Jace and Liliana.
Quote from SkaterbruskiSounds like a cop out to me.
Quote from SkiboIt is, but not copping out would mean we can't go back. They wanted to go back, so they retconned it.
The more interesting question is, if they had the story for Scars figured out, why wouldn't they edit the ending of Fifth dawn to be more ambigious?
Quote from luminum canMy guess is they didn't have much of a guarantee that they ever would come back, so they didn't bother leaving it very open to a sequel. Because if they didn't do one, then the fans would be upset from wondering when we were ever going to get the sequel they hinted at, which would never come. This way, we still get upset because they retconned, but we still get more Mirrodin, so the sting is a bit less.
Quote from MORTI am for the retcon (if they have to), but not the one that ignores clear facts, when they could have easily done one including them.
C'mon, there will be a new pact on Ravnica, and all will be fine again.
Kamigawa? Someone will take That Which Was Taken Again again.
Shards? This time Bolas will drain it of mana and it will split again.
oh, wait. Wizards won't include facts...so
Ravnica's guild never fell.
War on Kamigawa never ended.
There was no Conflux.
yeah, looks nice.
Next week: the return of an old nemesis—that isn't Nicol Bolas.
Quote from Caranthir »Yawgmoth, the ruler of Phyrexia, Lord of the Wastes, Father of Machines, is DEAD. He's passed on. He is no more! He has ceased to be! He is expired and gone to meet his maker! He is a stiff! Bereft of life, he rests in peace! He kicked the bucket, He has shuffled off his (apparently)mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!
Quote from Designer Genes
Memnarch was crazy about 5 minutes after Karn left.
Quote from TezzeretYou see, this post nicely illustrates why I DON'T want Gix to come back: Because once they resurrect one guy, many others will soon follow. We could end up with resurrected versions of Xantcha, Ratepe, Urza, Mishra, Yawgmoth etc. before the year was over.
Quote from MORTAnd I'll keep telling you they all died there.
In the fireball generated by Urza's Eyes as soon as Xantcha and Ratepe broke Gix's influence on them. It's in the book. They were consumed by the blast of fire, not dropped into some rift.
