Donkey Kong holding Princess Peach is at the end of the Maze.

Look into it, Magic is Cross-promoting for Nintendo.

There's no card for it?  I coulda sworn there was a card entitled "Maze's End".

If I know my mazes, there's a nice wedge of cheese out there.

There is a land card called Maze'sEnd but it's total crap...  :/   I hope that isn't the Big reveal for what Niv-Mizzet is hidding...

There were clues hidden in the flavor text for the Guildgates. IIRC when the runners complete the Maze it restarts the Guildpact.

According to the trailer, once the maze is completed, one being will rule the guilds of Ravnica.

I notice, though, that Ral never actually said which being will rule the guilds. He vaguely implied that it would be whoever completes the maze, but it was never outright stated.
a code that you can put in your sig to say you completed the maze.

VCLs request the moves and ORCs move the threads.

On topic, I think the idea that one being gets to rule once the maze has been completed is a lie planted to incentivise people to run the maze, when in fact the exact opposite will happen (instead of one ruler power will be shared between the guilds).

It's probably something equally as crappy as maze's end, like brussel sprouts or a Waffle House bathroom.
It's actually Chandra.

The reason Jace is running the maze is to save her - he received a hologram where she said that he was her only hope.

I'd just like to preface that I called this.

No-one really knows, neither out or in-universe. We can speculate that there will be something to restart the Guildpact. The people on Ravnica (that are aware of it) think it's a source of great power that will let them rule Ravnica. Ral Zarek thinks it's a weapon.

Keeper I have to point out, and you can stop me if I'm way off base, because I tend to blow things out of proportion and misinterpret things all the time... But I think, that, maybe, you might be just ever so slightly bitter about this.

 A lady dragon for Niv. You can only ignore an itch for so long, and after 10,000 years this one badly needs to get scratched. The whole, "Running the Maze" thing is a hoax. The Champions are the draconic equivalent of a box of chocolates. Mmm, champions!

Yeah, I didn't pick up on it at first, because Keeper usually isn't so subtle about his feelings, but it's starting to dawn on me that he might not like how Dragon's Maze was handled. But it's just a feeling. More like the inkling of a feeling.

Can we. Please. Have a giant collaborative canon-demolishing slashfiction brainstorming session? The end result should contradict not only established canon, but also contradict the fanon it establishes in the past, present, and future of the work itself. That way, it never makes sense to anyone except Barinellos.

I think M:EM NSFW would be happy with that. Make it happen.

Well, we've already got that doujinshi I found a while back to use as a starting point. My only idea would be to have Bolas use a gender bent simulacrum named Nicola to seduce Niv, playing her like a puppet the same way Cyrano plays Christian. Only for her to end up developing her own sense of self will. Niv, of course, finds himself torn between the two; the lovely, if not quite lucid, simulacrum, and the plane conquering mental titan who might pose a threat to Niv's dominance of Ravnica. Complicating the situation is that Sarkhan has misheard Tezzeret plotting vengeance on Jace, who is fleeing an abusive relationship at the hands of Gideon. Gideon, heart broken by Jace's betrayal, seeks comfort in the arms of Karn, only to find himself competing with Elspeth for the golem's affections. Chandra, Liliana, and Nissa continue their experiments with body modifications, while Garruk and Koth spend their time getting drunk and complaining about how hard it is to find a properly fitting shirt. Tamiyo and Ral go off to "experiment" while Sorin stalks them from the shadows. Tibalt keeps trying to find someone to play with, but no one pays any attention to him because nobody likes Tibalt.
This thread is going to become a train wreck;

I want to look away, but I can't. D:



Proceed.

Yes, mostly because you have to work really hard to figure out which one is the bottom.

@mikemearls The office is basically empty this week, which opens up all sorts of possibilities for low shenanigans

@mikemearls In essence, all those arguments I lost are being unlost. Won, if you will. We're doing it MY way, baby.

@biotech66 aren't you the boss anyway? isn't "DO IT OR I FIRE YOU!" still an option?

@mikemearls I think Perkins would throat punch me if I ever tried that. And I'd give him a glowing quarterly review for it.

Can't they just be both Versas though?

So I heard...

At the end of the maze is a place with countless doors, many marked by successful mazerunners past... the same mazerunners that are attempting the maze now.  Going through a new door sets you back at the start of the maze, including temporally, with a new plot coupon so maybe you'll get it right next time

But there's this other theory...

Upon reaching the end of the maze you travel through a tunnel of bright, fantastic lights to... an ordinary apartment.  Almost too ordinary.  After some inexplicable events there, the mazerunner returns to ravnica proper as a god-fetus with infinite power

However, there's some evidence that...

Solving the maze causes the maze runner to enter a starscape sort of dimension where (s)he experiences a musical number about how much (s)he's grown, then returns to Ravnica with shiny new wings that signify the maze runner's ascension to a higher type of being

I believe, though

That at the center of the maze, there must be a minotaur.  Namley, Sandruu -- he's been playing us all for fools and is the mastermind behind everything.
