I'm happy I'm on an MTG downswing. Too much new product too fast these days. Nothing has time to really sink in and become beloved. It's all a whirlwind of sparkles amongst a backdrop of poop.

The entire RTR block was ok, with Dragon's Maze being the worst of the 3, IMO.
Going back there 3 more times, in succession, is certain to exhaust the player base, not to mention the design teams involved.

Reeally?

Original Ravnica: Oct 7, 2005. Next non-ravnica set: July 8, 2006 (coldsnap). That was 3 sets, 651 cards over approx 9 months.

Return to Ravnica: Oct 5, 2012. Next non-ravnica set: July 19, 2013 (M14). That's 3 sets, 679 cards over approx 9 months.

This new return to Ravnica: Oct 5, 2018. Next non-ravnica set (as per Wikipedia currently): Sept 2019 (as we know the January 2019 is going to be Ravnica as well). And, likely there will be a July set so it is, again, 9 months of Ravnica. So again, 3 sets over 9 months. (# of cards will likely increase, as they've stopped doing small sets.)

It's not going to exhaust the player base -- this is how they've been doing it for years. They then shortened how long they stayed on a plane, and are now one plane per set which feels *really* fast. So they're playing with their current layout, and simply staying on a plane as long as necessary to tell the story they want to tell.

This is not going to exhaust their creative team. They've done this a LOT before. In fact, it almost feels like they're going back to their 3-act story telling, only we don't have small sets anymore.

Finally, the likelyhood of them destroying the realm (either, total armageddon or even just wrecking it a lot) is very slim. They've just recently announced a guide to Ravnica sourcebook for D&D. They likely aren't going to branch out to other products for a world, only to wreck it.
