Cause Tasha is popular and has been shown off more.

Been playing D&D since 2E and read a lot of lore and I don't think I ever heard of Tasha until 5E brought her up. Not to say she wasn't important before Im just saying...

They could easily have promoted Dalamar or hell even Raistlin or hey Alustial Silverhand (or any of the Seven Sisters) or any other of more famous NPCs and they would now be "the popular one". She's popular because WotC put her in the spotlight recently. Pretty easy choice to make who to include when you only promote like 2 choices for wizards in Faerun.

I mean, you absolutely did. Just under a different pseudonym. But consider it D&D going with the flow of the current zeitgeist. Wicked and Maleficent made it cool to reframe your witch queen as a misunderstood anti-heroine done dirty. And while Tasha's rise hasn't gone so far as to erase Iggwilv's darker deeds, it's done a good job at casting her as the sarcastic edgy one instead of an outright villain like Vecna.

None of that stuff is straight time travel though, because time travel is a separate thing.
Not going to go down that debate. There are multiple ways time travel is portrayed. People engaging in this kind of debate are often coming from different expectations, when there isn't one true answer. They are jousting on different fields.
