Goblin Spymaster, War's Toll, Gideon Jura and Basandra, Battle Seraph are pretty good ways to get them to attack.

One more suggestion, Gideon Jura. So you can tap out an opponent.

Not sure I like her over Ajani. Now if he gave -- making it easier to transmute Muddle the Mixture -- or if her mana did not empty at end of phase, it would be a different story. But there are a number of other walkers I would consider before Chandra, Torch of Defiance. I would use Gideon Jura, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Dovin Baan, Koth of the Hammer, and Narset Transcendent all before Chandra. Which feels weird to say -- because I do not even like some of those walkers, but I like Chandra a lot.

iAzire on Karn vs bolas?

Yes, he was too powerful for the Plane and had to anchor himself. We don't know why though. What I mean by that is we don't know if he is too powerful to manifest on any Plane, or if that specific Plane was just weak.

To answer the second part of your question, Bolas chose to separate his mind from his body.

From what we know, Bolas has defeated Teferi (I believe killing him), he killed Ugin, he EASILY defeated the combined effort of Tezzeret and Jace. Jace is supposed to be some amazingly powerful Mind Mage, yet Bolas was easily able to overpower Tezzeret and Jace, MENTALLY.

I don't remember exactly, did Bolas kill Venser or did it work out some other way? I know Venser is dead, and Bolas was involved, yet I don't remember if Bolas killed Venser.

From my standpoint, if we look at who Bolas has already defeated and those that have failed to defeat him, he easily has the upper hand.

Gatewatch:

  • Gideon Jura No interaction with Bolas that I am aware of, threat level: insignificant

  • Nissa Revane No interaction with Bolas that I am aware of, threat level: could be dangerous due to her connection to Leylines

  • Jace Beleren Easily defeated by Bolas with help from Tezzeret, manipulated into releasing the Eldrazi by Bolas, threat level: insignificant

  • Chandra Nalaar Manipulated into releasing the Eldrazi by Bolas, threat level: probably insignificant as Bolas planned her presence

  • Liliana Vess Much interaction with Bolas in the past, they have always worked together, threat level: high for the Gatewatch as given an ultimatum, Liliana may side with Bolas due to his knowledge of her demon masters and his ability to regain much of the lost power from the Mending

  • Ajani Goldmane Has fought Bolas in the past, knew he was too weak to defeat him so it tried some trickery and created a Bolas clone, threat level: could be dangerous but unlikely Bolas would allow Ajani to do the same thing twice lowering his threat level

Bolas doesn't really have competition in the Gatewatch. The fact that Bolas planned on Sarkhan, Jace, and Chandra being on Zendikar to release the Eldrazi, he doesn't fear them. As he made this entire plan, it is almost certain he knows of Nissa and planned on her participation as well. I also suspect that Chandra may follow Liliana if Liliana were to leave the Gatewatch.

You claim that huge overarching stories are a bad idea because people weren't used to it and Weatherlight Saga was poorly received. Then you claim that the Gatewatch is the biggest problem in Magic stories but offer no proof. In fact, you actually go on to show how audiences and the wants of the customers change every seven years. So, in actuality, your argument points in favor of the Gatewatch because its a "new" thing. I got into Magic to hang out with friends, but its been the struggles of the recurring characters and their stories that has kept me here. Adventuring through the planes with Chandra Nalaar and watching the trauma Gideon Jura went through at the behest of Erebos, God of the Dead has been some of my favorite moments in Magic. My least favorite stories were some of the older ones where the story was self-contained and barely connected to even the next week's story. My point is, just because you may prefer one side, doesn't mean there isn't a demand for the other part.

I usually enjoy your articles despite never posting on them, but this one was more than a little bit disappointing.
