    Surprising

    But at the same time they need to do this more often for incomplete cycles

    so I’m begging you guys do this for the battle lands just to complete them we finally need a budget alternative to shocklands

    I've been waiting so long for this...

    Eh, it can't possibly tank my desire to engage with MTG (especially the lore) more than Phyrexian planeswalkers have.

    Honestly, I have concerns for Narset, my fave.

    Yeah, she's my favorite too, and while it wouldn't surprise me if they killed her off or worse in an ignoble way, it would be extremely infuriating since they already got Tamiyo.

    Third law of the universe, guys. Light speed, the gravitational constant, and "edgelords ruin everything".

    With any luck at all, War of the Spark 2: Phyrexian Boogaloo will be next year, so we at least don't have to suffer through a few more years of this garbage.

    Yeah, I wouldn't read George R. R. Martin's books if it were a choice between that and reading Twilight while drinking my own urine.

    And I don't recall ever complaining about the stakes being too low in War of the Spark.

    Sure, it's a possibility, but I just don't trust them to actually do that and resolve it in a satisfying way.

    I already hated the Phyrexians enough. This new development doesn't make me hate them all that much more. It simply also makes me hate the writers.

    I've seen so many monkey's paws in MTG lately. I hope for a fairy planeswalker and get a psychopath, I hope for Tamiyo to show up on her own plane and she's Phywrecked. I'm calling it right now: In 2023, the Phyrexians will invade Kaladesh. It would be the perfect crap cherry to top this crappy, insulting travesty of a storyline. Take something I loved and ruin it for cheap shock value.

    I totally agree with you. It just is a slap in the face on so many levels. First and foremost Tamiyo is the planeswalker who could so easily be the Saga matters planeswalker. And not only that she is a pacifist. I just want to be done with this story so bad wake me up in three years I guess lol.

    Right?

    I want to go back in time, find whoever came up with the idea of Phyrexia, and get them stuck in a traffic jam or accident or something so that they miss their interview and never work for Wizards of the Coast.

    I…is this a joke?!


    I’m going to be LIVID if Tamiyo actually suffered this fate Mad

    On the one hand, another story arc with a new big bad is kind of neat. On the other, I hate the "oh, this character you loved? They're brainwashed and evil now" thing. I honestly would've preferred Tamiyo to die. WotC's anti-human bias also continues to show - why not have one of the random human planeswalkers suffer this fate, I'm sure we have over a dozen of them at this point.

    The boring part about an established character (human or not) becoming compleated is that it basically removes all nuance from them. Once they're Phyrexian, they are nothing more than a "doing evil things for the sake of being evil" type of caricature.

    This is also crappy storytelling. The Phyrexians were always OP, but their one weakness was the inability to planeswalk. So what do the writers do as soon as they bring them back? Make that no longer apply, so now they can brainwash and conquer anyone and anything they want with little recompense. As if having plot armor thicker than the Antarctic ice caps weren't enough. So I think I officially don't care about the lore anymore, and with it, possibly not any future sets (except maybe Un-sets). Have they ever heard of Too Bleak; Stopped Caring?

    Okay, I either want to punch the entire story team in the face or sell off my collection now. Possibly both. Tamiyo was one of my favorite characters in the game, I can't stand the Phyrexians and wish they would all die a horrible death, and this is the most insulting story beat I've seen since Animorphs ended. I wanted Tamiyo to come back and get a new card, but NOT LIKE THIS. I guess it's a good thing that I hadn't gotten around to the first four stories yet, because now I don't need to bother with them.
