Or its just closing a chapter on their life/unlife. Keeping a character around forever under the pretense that death is 'wasting their potential' can also be wasting their potential as the character is stuck in writing purgatory, that even if the character was beloved at first it may overstay its welcome.Quote fromKilling characters who still have potential is just wasting said potential, plain and simple.
That you don't agree with. There was also that tangent with Vivian and how an actual case was made that her death would mean more to the story.And so far no one has really suggested anyone that has no potential.
Which very rarely gets used in MTG.Unless you're wanting to make stories where you bring people back from the dead regularly and trivialize death
That would be part of setting the tone of the story. Showing a death early clues people in that what is at stake even if no more deaths for the heroes occured.there isn't any merit in offing someone early on.
Correction, when it doesn't actually serve the story is when a death is bad.There really isn't much merit in killing people in general,
Death of planeswalkers rarely gets used. Venser's death is in 2011, Elspeth and Xenagos's deaths are in 2014, finally Dack and Domri and Gideon's death's are 2019. Each set is also in the month of May, which give or take a few a days, is 3 years and then 5 years.because using death as the only way to make meaningful impact in a story is cheap as well and loses its edge if done to the extent suggested here.
You want the actual reason for Dack's death? Because Wizards didn't fully own the rights to his character, IDW did. So they basically gave him a farewell with this set. However the set wasn't originally designed with that in mind so that is why Dack Fayden doesn't appear on flavor text or on cards except for the Ravnica Allegiances mythic edition, this was also after they consolidated a two-set block for War of the Spark into one set. To accommodate this extra planeswalker, there was two teams that handled Dack, the people who handled the trailer and the writing team. The trailer team simply had to come-up with a model and textures and rigging and effects for Dack from 0:40 to 0:56 (16 seconds). For writing they had Greg Weisman, the author of the book, fit Dack in as one of the POV characters. The kicker is that this isn't the first time this has happened either. Similar situation, like deja vu, happened with Armada Comics way back since the publishing company had the rights to Taysir of Rabiah and Kristina of the Woods for example. Their deaths occurred when they were part of the Nine Titans team.
I will see myself out.
