Quote from Xeruh »
None of the premises to me read "everyone dies and Bolas wins" or "half the known Planeswalkers die in a borderline pyrrhic victory". If that's how you're reading it then that's fine, but it's far from the only interpretation, as it is with literature. We had the bleak story with Amonkhet. That was one where it was rather obvious things weren't going to go well. We had it with the last round of Innistrad as well. Those were ones where it was rather obvious the story was going to be dark, and they delivered fine on that.
Nice strawman you're building there. Unless you truly believe there is no room between "almost no planeswalkers die" and "half/most die", in which case discussing this is kinda hard.
