Pattern Recognition #276 - Eternal IssuesThere's a fundamental problem with one of the driving forces behind the game right now, and I've seen it before in other games. Today, berryjon gets on his soap-box and makes a case for why we need to stop focusing so much on Modern and Commander.

More people with access to the internet made E3 obsolete kinda like video game magazines. Also, why share the limelight with other publishers and their games when you can make your own announcements and have that spotlight all to yourself?
Events entirely for Indie developers interest me more because these studios rely more on word of mouth and they don't have the marketing budget of bigger studios. Getting the word out for those games can also be life or death for these guys.

Honestly, the new-guard megawalkers should be facing a 'walker mid-life crisis' of sorts or facing the old vampire conundrum of running the risk of disconnecting from reality a bit. You don't even need to always have typical protagonist/antagonist stories all the time.. That's where all this trite story originates.
Lets just have some stories of exploration, mystery (Ixalan had some of that & many loved it), even human interest stories. I feel like many planeswalkers would try to get closer to "the ground" or some of these 'low-level' events if not just to keep their sanity at this point, which may even manifest as avoiding high-level, cosmos altering magic.
1) A planeswalker takes a step back, tries to play advisor to a monarch in all this aftermath. Low-level conflicts without 'goodguy vs badguy'
2) Planeswalker quest to reconnect with their humanity that goes the exploration route, "antagonists" would just be random obstacles along the way.
3) A "lost & found" story.
4) I personally want to see a story that shits on any more "time manipulation" as that needs major punishment, both mechanically (in the game), & lorewise. I keep saying would be the way to go, make some extra turns punishment with some panache with "butterfly effect" vibes in mind. Make a story that introduces paradox/entropy as a major limitation to all the magic being spewed around, especially time travel. Heck maybe TypicalTimmy's Niv-Mizzet, Nemesis could contract a prankster-type planeswalker to do this thing.
etc... lots of new angles to take after this last mega-event

Yes, that works. As long as there is nothing preventing an ability from triggering and the triggered ability is met a triggered ability goes on the stack the next time a player would receive priority.

SufferFromEDHD Made some swaps, most of your suggestions have been put in.
Long-Term Plans fits with the deck theme far too well, had to find a slot for it.
Peacekeeper doesn't exactly fit with my rough plan. It's not that I don't want any attacks, I just don't want any attacks at me.
Orim's Chant is perfect, put it in.
Teleportation Circle doesn't really work for the plan I have for the flickers. All the one's in the deck are instants, so that I can use Pramikon as a pseudo Deflecting Palm. Swapping directions and forcing someone trying to attack me to attack another opponent instead. They can also be used to save a creature from targeted removal in a pinch.

Mazirek and Chatterfang
Legendary Creature - Insect Squirrel
, Sacrifice a land: Create a 1/1 green Squirrel creature token and a 1/1 black Insect creature token with Flying
, Sacrifice a creature: Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control
Obviously, this assumes that Chatterfang is on Ravnica. However, while it would be easy to assume that Chatterfang in fact resides on Dominaria, I can find no source material to support such a claim. For now, just let a girl dream...
Make an instant that depicts one legendary creature or planeswalker defeating another, the way Tyvar's Stand does.

Coward_Token Well, I was going for any sort of involvement. I just hadn't seen that Alara art yet. This is disappointing for me, because it means that the only story we have about each of the shards suddenly being faced with one another is them immediately being faced with something else. The plane I'm most interested to learn more about, the one I think is most unique and I'm most anticipating a return to, is just another part of the Phyrexia story now. I'm worried that the story of Alara will become its recovery from the Phyrexian invasion, and not a story of how it develops a new identity after the Conflux.
Basically, a story about the reformation of Alara has lots of potential, and now I'm afraid all the potential will be wasted in a "We joined forces against Phyrexia!" feel-good story that doesn't resolve anything. Or, even worse, that it gets destroyed and its existence as the most original plane (in my opinion) will be forever meaningless.
