Consider this thought: Gideon has lost faith in himself, Liliana has gone off to serve Bolas, Nissa has been seen in Dominaria to have retire her duties and quit the Gatewatch. But what about Jace and Chandra? What happened to them? I believe in some cases that they are still loyal to what had started, only because they are friends since the Eldrazi got loose, but they are more ready to protect their home Planes only due to Bolas and their fear of his power he holds. I think to come down to it, Chandra and Jace are the only ones who are truly left, and even then, they might deform it to find a new path. To take a look at it these cards if you already know them:
Gideons Reproach (DOM)
In Bolas's Clutches
Where do you see Jace and Chandra? We see Chandra in Dominaria and Jace in Ixalan, but why do we see them seperate? I think even then, they might go alone to their own journey's and what they value. So pretty much I answered my own question, but I want you to tell me what you think. I want to hear y'all thoughts on this topic.
What duties are we talking about? Gate Watch duties would be just Gideon imo. He’s hopping around looking for planes in trouble, Nissa left to see her plane, Chandra wants to train, Lili wants to be demon-free, Jace wants to go to Ravnica where he should’ve been this whole time, and Ajani also bailed. I don’t mean who’s doing the right thing but who’s still trying to do things as a group of do-gooders. Just my opinion though.
Depends on what you think the Gatewatch should be focusing on right now. if the focus is Beating the Big Bad, then Jace and Ajani are still doing what they should be doing. Ajani is looking for allies to fight Bolas, and Jace is heading back to Rav with a focus on formulating a way to stop him. if the focus is helping whatever plane you're on at the time, then Lili is technically on task, because the biggest problem on Dominaria is Belzenok, which she just happens to be on a mission to seek and destroy. in Jace, Chandra and now Teferi you have the best of both scenarios. they are going after the Cabal, but the ultimate goal is to get strong enough to take another shot at Bolas. Gideon wants Liliana unfettered by her demon pacts so she can take on Bolas at full strength - and he also might want that blackblade. Chandra is using the Cabal mission as training so she can be better against Bolas. we don't know exactly why Teferi takes the oath yet, but I'm sure he's also eager for a rematch against Bolas.
