Quote from Solemn SimulatorI'm all for a Tezz-Bolas-Sarkhan love triangle. Meanwhile, Chandra finds out Gideon is actually her long-lost twin and Jace cries because no one loves him.
Quote from JivanmuktaHer second ability is the obscure one. The best I can think is that she drains knowledge from those asleep around her. Tapping usually means asleep or weakened in magic terms, sleep is also done at night when the moon is out so theres that link too.
Quote from magacIt's probably more like she feels safer to study sleeping animals than a waking one. Nice idea though.
... Now I'm imagining the wrong thing about Tami-chan and shippings
Quote from Lbolt187So what I hear people saying in general is that Tamiyo is basically a pacifist?
Quote from magacNo, what I mean is that if Tami offers you sake, don't drink it.
Quote from motleyslayerwould Liliana and Tezzeret work?

Quote from BarinellosI'm still actually a supporter that all those scrolls she's writing in are in fact full of horrible slash and fanfic about the people she met.
Quote from Lbolt187I really would like to see Liliana and Chandra team up. Have they crossed paths yet?
Quote from BakoninjaI'm just gonna sig this here statement.
Quote from Magus of the MindslicerAs far as I recall they've had Lilly/Jace, but that's not going too well. Then Baltrice sorta showed a lot of loyalty/appreciation/affection toward Jace in Test, and then there's all the Gideon/Chandra UST.
Bolas and Sarkan clearly have a BDSM thing going on, just leave 'em be.
I don't think Wizards will be pushing any couples though, because as someone mentioned earlier, whenever they've had a couple in the past it's never ended well. I honestly can't recall one that did. These are the ones that lasted more than one book/set.
Rayne/Barrin lasted a while, then Rayne got killed by Greel and Barrin nuked himself and a tonne of phyrexians.
Toshi/Kiku was more of a one night stand, and Kiku wasn't keen on a repeat.
Gerrard/Hanna ended with Hanna's death.
Fonn/Jarad actually married and had a kid. Then got divorced, and Jarad got killed, then revived himself. But Fonn wasn't keen on their son hanging out with the undead.
Maralen/Rhys had some leading dialogue & scenes, none of which goes anywhere.
And even in the Avacyn letters storyline, Mr Cathar/Reika ended when Reika got skewered by the evil church fellow
Basically MtG doesn't promote romance.

Quote from Lbolt187From your excellent examples it would seem Wizards hates "happy endings".
Quote from mabbermanwell yeah, people on Zendikar fought together to save their plane and ended up getting eating by like a million eldrazi
Quote from Lbolt187That just reiterates my point. While I do firmly believe life is filled with strife (hey, I rhymed:rolleyes:) and tragedies but there are just as many good things that sometimes come out of bad things and while I don't believe in fairy tale endings but they (wizards) needs to realize that and start showing it. They have a perfect chance to do this with Gideon hopefully (and successfully) rescuing a portion of Zendiikar denizens. Likewise with Koth. Perhaps a mutual partnership between the planeswalkers?
Quote from Creedmoor »Quote from Flisch »I'll never understand why people judge the quality of a block by its power level and not the fun you have with playing it.might be the most important quote of Mtg Sal history.

Quote from FlischJust a quick overview of the endings in Magic since Kamigawa block (since Mirrodin is too retconny for my taste and the blocks before that didn't really have an ending and were an ongoing story.):
Kamigawa - Peace returned to the plane, definately a good ending
Ravnica - The tyranny of the guilds was ended and the citizens of Ravnica were free again. I chalk that up as a good ending.
Time Spiral - Starting out as the darkest block so far it turned rather hopeful towards the end, showing how Dominaria is regenerating. While I wouldn't call the block lighthearted, it definately had a good ending.
Lorwyn - Oona's tyranny was ended and Lorwyn was brought back to its natural state, realigning everyone with their true nature. Depending on your view, this is probably a good ending for most inhabitants of Lorwyn.
Alara - Due to the complexity of the setting it's hard to say if the ending was good or bad. Some shards seemed to suffer, while others seemed to gain from the Conflux. (The Vithians for instance.) And even then one could argue that bringing back the world to its natural state opens up more possibilities for everyone. I guess this is a rather neutral ending.
Zendikar - Yeah, bad ending. Nuff said.
Mirrodin/New Phyrexia - Even worse ending than Zendikar. Interestingly only a handful of people even see it as a bad ending because most hated the Mirrans anyway.
Innistrad - Similar to Time Spiral, this block turned out better than it started off. This is probably one of the best endings, as apart from the monsters, everyone benefitted from Avacyn's return.
So, out of eight different blocks, 2 had a bad ending and 1 had an ambigious ending, which still leaves 5 blocks with a pretty good ending.
I don't really see why people keep saying MtG is too dark.
Quote from mabbermanDoesn't tezzeret and bolas count? it's not "mutual" per se but it's a partnership (sort of)
Quote from Lbolt187An entire plane being eaten and a global genocide is not that dark?
