mcsleuthburger asked: I've heard Steven Moffat, lead writer of Doctor Who for those of you who don't know, say that the hardest thing about creating a villain in Doctor Who is you can't just make a "Bad Guy." You have to create a race or being who actually believes what they are doing is right (Cybermen and Sontarans come to mind). How do you feel that this relates to creating characters in Magic?
Storytelling is storytelling regardless of the medium. Magic’s best villains have followed the same rules. The Phyrexians are awesome villains, for example, because they are driven by an internal logic that makes sense. No one questions why the Phyrexians are doing what they’re doing because their motivations are clear.
