Quote from AngelmonsterIt actually was "TEH PLAN!!!!" funny enough.
Bolas took over or created the Consortium. He found Alara(how ocnveniant) and began TEH PLAN on alara and in the process found Tezzeret. Tezzeret rebeled and took over the ocnsortium(which still doesn't make sense to me, Bolas at the time should have had the strength to birch slap Tez into submission). Since Tez owned the consortium he ran into Jace, who in turn runs into Chandra because the consortium was interested int he scroll. Liliana ran into Jace directly because of Bolas and afte rLiliana met Jace she wanted to be free of her demons, thus indirectly because of Bolas when Liliana went to get the veil she ran into Garruk.
While the plan was in action Bolas met Vol because Vol wanted to worship him. Bolas sent Vol out to walk about Jund and so happened he met Ajani. Vol later meets Chandra because somehow (TEH PLAN!!) Bolas found out about Chandra. he then runs into Jace because Jace was looking for Chandra.
Thus, technically, they all ran into eachothe rbecause of TEH PLAN! The only ones that were not affected by TEH PLAN (Elspeth) never met another walker yet in the storyline. Nizza and Sorin will run into eachother because of TEH ELDRAZI. Right now they are the only plausable "Walker meet up" because Nissa lives on Zendikar and because of Sorin's past involving the Eldrazi, which I bet is a part of Bolas' TEH PLAN!
Quote from Urza »"This is Phyrexia--nine stacked planes, one within the another. This top layer is the only one where a human might survive, for a few hours. It is inhabited by dragon engines, some five hundred feet in length, and creatures discarded as useless, creatures that would make our [artifact] runners and pumas and scorpions seem like mechanical fleas. The dense forests in this region are made of semi-metallic plants--poisonous, with razor-edged leaves--that grow in the light of the ceaseless lightning storms that fill the soot-black sky. Each layer downward grows worse--with mutilated priests, demon hordes, witch engines, titanic worms, poison and acid and fire. At the base of it all, there is a figure deeper, darker, more hideous than any Dominaria has ever known.
"I have awakened this creature. I have drawn him here. That is how deep and ancient my mistakes are. I am responsible for the plague of Tolaria, yes, but also for the gradual collapse of a realm of angels, the long ice age of this world, the destruction of Argoth, and the very introduction of evil into the world. That is the scale of my failures. All of that is what I strive to undo ..."
Quote from TezzeretWhile I agree Wizards may decide to change this at any time for any reasons, Venser was originally not immortal. Future Sight states that literally:
Quote from Tezzeret »The problem is that no one knows that for sure. Yawgmoth wanted the Mightstone and Weakstone because he believed they'd make him a planeswalker, so unless he was simply wrong, there must have been a Spark inside them.
I have to agree. Only one sentient being in a million has a Spark, and only one Spark-bearer out of a million manages to ascend. How high is a planeswalker's chance to meet an another of his/her kind? I still believe they should have explained it somehow - you know, something like "each planeswalker is able to feel the Spark within other beings". Pre-Mending 'walkers could recognize it, why can't these do the same?
Quote from BarinellosAlright, I'll give you that since you did say "one of the few" because there really were several others that were in the same boat.
Of course, while thinking of this I came up with the best plot summary of Dissension: "Guildpact breaks, sh*t gets real."
