Basically this, but I do play favorites so I can't agree entirely.

If I had to choose a favorite it would be Jace, Garruk, or ajani.

I do have a friend who loves sorin to the point of annoyance. They are very shallow characters, I don't know why their would be "fanbases."

All they really have going for them is design, card playstyle, and maybe a little bit of personality hidden in there somewhere.

The correct answer of course in Jace.

That is because it seems like all the worst writers at Wizards are huge Jace fanboys.

"Hey guys, lets take one of our most despised characters and make him the defacto ruler of one of most original and beloved settings."

That's the point, shallow characters allow people to project their own fanfiction on them. So that people like them better as they are actually the one who made most of the character development (in their head).
It doesn't work, actually.

A guy who walks between different planes of existence. In the case of the Magic: the Gathering setting, a Planeswalker is capable of other things as well, such as using mana to recall memories in the form of spells, which they use to battle other Planeswalkers.

Xenagos never was good. He realized how insignificant Theros was compared to the multiverse and decided to get the most enjoyment out of it

I don't think party =/= Revelry. They were more about just raising hell than partying.

If anything comes out of a Return to Theros, it needs to involve Heliod being the villain with probably Erebos (using his zombie waifu Elspeth) fighting against him.

All the sidewalkers are the most interesting. Liliana, Gideon, Jace, Chandra, Garruk, Sorin. They're all so fucking boring. The only interesting ones are the ones who got almost nothing in the limelight. The side characters always get some weird quirk or personality and nothing else. Letting you know more about them than the main walkers, but then giving you less canon so you can just imagine all the things they get up to. Basically what I'm saying is the main walkers fucking blow and they really need to make a set focusing on bringing some of the sideline walkers back. A planeswalkers matters set. It'd make a ton of people drop cause they're pissy faggots who can't stomach planeswalkers even though they only take like 6 out of 300 card spots a year? But it'd be cool to have tiny like 1 mana fledging walkers who have really piss weak ultimates. It'd be a fun set.
