Agrus Kos, Feather, and their remaining allies are stuck at the Wojek headquarters while the city bursts into chaos around them.

Desperate, Feather allows Kos to break [[WillfullyWeak the bonds on]] [[ClipItsWings her wings]]. [[DynamicEntry The next chapter opens with Feather smashing through the Conclave's walls]],hurling the explosive remains of the zeppelid into Savra's army and [[OneManArmy then taking on Savra's entire air force by herself.]]

* In the novel of 'Fifth Dawn', Glissa Sunseeker is faced with a desperate situation. Yert, a powerful vampire with an artifact that allows him to control any and all nonsentient life on Mirrodin, has his [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Nim]] hold a lot of leonin and goblin [[WouldHurtAChild children]] hostage, with a mind-link to the zombies that allows him to give the order to kill instantly.

The two walkers end up back on Dominaria, with Phage's corruption having consumed most of Bolas's body. As Leshrac closes in for the killing blow, suddenly Nicol Bolas's body seemingly regenerates, he plucks the Mask of Night from Leshrac, and places it on his head, trapping him in it. Bolas explains that he was never actually hit by Leshrac. He twisted himself out of the way at the last second, and cast an illusion that he was being corrupted as he fled from plane to plane. With Leshrac trapped in the mask, Bolas uses the Walker of the Night's spark to mend the rift at Leviathan's Gate, and return to this machinations.
* The end of the milennia-old original Magic arc, where [[spoiler: Gerrard and Urza sacrifice themselves to finally kill Yawgmoth]], Considering Urza spent millenia preparing for his world for an invasion only to [[spoiler: get seduced by Yawgmoth after coming so close to destroying his world and having it all be for nothing. Then having to fight Gerrard to the death 'several' times to please Yawgmoth before realising he was wrong.]].

* The new [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZf08OBag4o Dragon's Maze trailer]]. It's narrated by [[MadScientist Ral]] [[TheSociopath Zarek]], the Izzet Planeswalker. He describes how [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Niv-Mizzet]] is "inviting" the other guilds to join in the Izzet's [[OhCrap grand experiment]]. A hidden ancient maze has been found, and each guild can send a single champion through it to claim the prize. The entire time the other guilds (And Zarek) will be trying to interfere with eachother's champion. Whoever reaches the Maze's End will rule Ravnica, forever. The entire time this is explained, we pan across amazing artwork, showing the dangers ahead of the champions. Oh, and did I mention Zarek is voiced by YuriLowenthal? [[CrazyAwesome This is gonna rock]].

* In the digital novel "Godsend", Elspeth [[spoiler: fights Polukranos, a [[{{Kaiju}} monstrously]] big Hydra that is called The World Eater for a good reason. Elspeth, being a badass and armed with the [[CoolSword Godsend]], quickly runs into the [[HydraProblem Hydra problem]]; every chopped off head results in two more. So what does she do? Chop the heads off ''halfway'', so they still die, but can't be replaced.]]
** Elspeth [[spoiler: goes through hell and back, sees herself denounced despite saving Akros, receives the ire of Heliod and still journeys to the edge of the world. In the end, she ends up ''killing'' Xenagos with the Godsend.]].
*** After that, Heliod [[spoiler: decides that the existence of Planeswalkers, and thus world beyond his control, is an affront, and moves to kill Elspeth. He [[TearJerker does so]], but in death, Elspeth trades her life with Erebos for that of her friend Daxos in one final act of defiance.]]
* [[spoiler: After Elspeth's death]], Ajani is left in Oreskos, unsure of himself and what to do. After he is challenged by Brimaz, he travels to Meletis, walks into Heliod's temple and [[spoiler: tells the truth about Heliod and the gods. Here he is in Heliod's greatest temple, actively insulting the god and challenging his authority. He's pretty much asking for a BoltOfDivineRetribution. Not only does he walk away untouched, but his arguments encourage the people of Theros to begin questioning their cruel pantheon. It's at this point that Ajani decides what battle he wants to fight: a RageAgainstTheHeavens to topple the gods.]]
* The story of how Sorin, Ugin and Nahiri seal away the Eldrazi in [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/ur/lithomancer-2014-10-29 The Lithomancer]]. Nahiri slaves away for ''forty years'' to make the hedrons which can seal the titans, and their plan succeeds despite the odds.

* An out of universe example, but [[http://dougbeyermtg.tumblr.com/post/61385493599/are-the-guardians-or-meletis-magics-first-gay-couple Guardians of Meletis are Magic's first LGBT couple]], breaking the HideYourGays that has happened for 20 years (though Rakish Heir is meant to be fanservice to gay males). Previously, Xantcha was a well written, sympathetic "trans" character, but she is unfortunately only present in one book, and the only two characters with hints of non-heterosexual orientation, a random warlord and a [[LizardFolk Viashino]] prostitute, are both one scene wonders, and the former a severe case of DepravedBisexual.
** Another out of universe example, when [[WordOfGod Doug Beyer]] [[http://dougbeyermtg.tumblr.com/post/73492305439/why-kiora-the-crashing-wave-and-not-kiora-atua-why explains why Kiora's surname has been rectified]]. Is there any doubt about WOTC's awesomeness now?
** And, finally, there's an actual story about [[http://www.wizards.com/Magic/magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/ur/285 LGBT romance]].[[spoiler:And, although [[BuryYourGays stereotypically tragic]], it has [[DarkIsNotEvil Black not being evil]] in it as well, so yes.]]
* And finally, [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/uncharted-realms/truth-names-2015-01-28 The Truth Of Names]].
** Compounding the inclusion of a heroic, non-tragic transgender character; [[http://dougbeyermtg.tumblr.com/post/112727174244/hi-doug-reading-the-new-uncharted-realms-i-felt#notes Beyer confirms that Narset is on the autistic spectrum.]]

* Kiora gets into a fight with Thassa. Although she can't match the God of the Sea in raw power or command over the beasts of the ocean, she can do one thing Thassa can't: Planeswalk. So with her sea creatures turned against her, and held helpless at the mercy of an angry, vengeful God, she cuts her losses and departs, but not before she [[spoiler:[[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/uncharted-realms/drop-drop-2015-05-20 steals Thassa's bident.]]]]

* Oath of the Gatewatch previews have revealed a pair of cards: Bonds of Mortality can be used to strip an opponent's creatures of hexproof and indestructible, while Fall of the Titans deals a huge amount of damage to two targets, as much as you have the mana to pay for. But the real awesome is in their flavor texts, which confirms that those cards mean exactly what it sounds like they mean.
-->'''Bonds of Mortality''': ''Jace discovered the leyline pattern needed to anchor Ulamog and Kozilek to reality, but it was Nissa who could trace it on her world.''
-->'''Fall of the Titans''': ''As Gideon kept the brood lineages at bay, Chandra incinerated the bound Eldrazi titans.''
