One of the questions I’m frequently asking about these examples is “What is actually going on here?” Because of course it would be easy to jump to conclusions, and we certainly don’t want to allow prejudice to cloud our judgments regard the MTG Multiverse. Maybe I’m overreacting. Maybe it’s really not as bad as I make it out to be.
So, what’s going on here? I’ll tell you that we have one very important clue. Look closely at that text box. See that watermark? That’s the emblem of Ravnica’s Dimir Guild. Go read up on the myriad activities of the Dimir Guild, and then tell me if you think the incident here is either benign or accidental. I’ll let you be the judge.
