Remind me of how many Planeswalkers and heros/named characters had to die the first time around? This is the level of threat that The Phyrexians should be. They should be The™ threat to everything within Magic. Not Bolas. Not the Eldrazi. The Phyrexians.
The Drazi should honestly pose a much higher level threat than they do to be fair. Phyrexians want to take over reality, Eldrazi reside inside the space between reality and could probably unravel it if inclined.
You are right though that Phyrexians needed to be more of a threat than Bolas, because he is literally just a dragon mustache twirler as opposed to an inexorable plague that consumes and converts all.
Likewise there are not a hell of a lot of purely colorless Sorceries and Instants, so I suspect they have to make one or 2 just to balance out the deck against the other precons. Exciting times for a player who REALLY wants to see eldrazi be a real deck in legacy again.
