Yup, this is Gideon literally dying for nothing after giving up his indestructibility because Bolas also made sure the Blackblade won't hurt him. At least in this, he was prepared.

And now forever. Nice.
Quote from Goryo »"Bolas had an eternity to contemplate defeat."
Man, that flavor text feels SO good to read.
The thing about killing Bolas is that it just wouldn't be enough retribution. He has 25,000 years of atrocities to answer for, dozens of enslaved/destroyed worlds, and deaths on his hands numbering at least into the billions. Cutting him down with a sword and just ending him in a moment of righteous justice would feel good for a minute, but then ring hollow.
Bolas has to feel his defeat. He has to know he is beaten, pathetic, and impotent forevermore. His infinite atrocities merit an infinite punishment. Now his victims can begin to have justice.
Quote from theMarc »PSA to everyone who keeps forgetting about the Reserved List:
You're on a website dedicated to talking about MtG. You're only a few keystrokes away from finding out what cards are on the Reserved List. You're also only a few keystrokes away from finding out why some cards on the Reserved List got foil printings in FtV, as Judge promos, or whatnot, as well as why that won't happen again. Stop doing this.
Quote from Manite »Take note that Tyrant's Scorn can't actually kill Gideon Blackblade. It can bounce him, but not kill him. And there's always a chance someone will save Gideon's life, like Ajani.
Quote from Avatar »All I care is that the coolest sword in the whole history of MTG is destroyed because some incompetent thought he could wield it like a real hero.
