Agree. I can't stand that they crippled Will either. We literally are just getting to know this character. Go wreck the actual Mary Sues on the Planeswalker roster when they're against Eldrazi or other major threats. IDK. It's like no consistency. When a story requires stakes, there are none, and when the focus shouldn't be overshadowed by such debilitating consequences, they're randomly thrown in on the wrong character. It's just haphazard, messy writing with zero continuity.
But sure, thanks for making a nobody, one-shot plane-bound villain we just met a major deal at the expense of a character we're finally introduced to now, essentially, while Avacyn, Theros gods and Eldrazi are pushovers?
