Do IDs double magic on an eighth
face? Why?

All ID results can be doubled on the 8th face. (Per page 16 of the rules). Presumably, this was done to limit the nerfing of magic in 4.0, since doubling is no longer allowed under other circumstances.

Thematically speaking, doubling is allowed on the 8th face due to the controlling army being established, thereby allowing magic-users to erect permanent shrines to their respective deities to gain power?

IDs on an eighth face double for ALL rolls. But only IDs are doubled. So that gives an army trying to hold an eighth face some advantage, but not an overwhelming one.
