comment Why did Magnussen need to pressure so many people to get to Mycroft?
I'm accepting this answer because I agree it mostly boils down to needlessly convoluted chains. I'd actually posit that Mrs. Hudson would be a pressure point to John, with how he reacted in the Reichenbach Fall regarding Mrs. Hudson being hurt. In the end, Magnussen could just as well pressured John->Sherlock->Mycroft. John->Sherlock was already demonstrated in the bonfire incident and John->Mary seemed more sensible than Mary->John. All is explicable as Magnussens' hubris.

comment Why did Magnussen need to pressure so many people to get to Mycroft?
I'm more and more inclined to explain it as arrogance, too. In this particular case, Magnussen didn't actually get to one-up Mycroft until after Mary had already been outed AND John had forgiven her. In other words, his play on Mary ended up fruitless--only Sherlock's obsession with trying to win led him to drug Mycroft, which he could have done with or without Mary/John invited to the Christmas party (except then he would've had to go to Appledore alone).

comment How many people died during the last battle in Ender's Game?
@Paulster2 I definitely agree with this. Deviating greatly from the book, it is heavily suggested to me that the final battle occurred remotely and humans weren't really at the battle front at all, which takes away hugely from a point once made to Ender by Mazer that ships were not expendable.
