* The Gatewatch did not beat Emrakul. [[spoiler:Emrakul sealed herself because "she no longer wants to play".]] ''This is all wrong. I am incomplete, unfulfilled, inchoate. There should be blossoms, not barren resentment. The soil was not receptive. It is not my time. Not yet.'' Ugin said that the Eldrazi were an important part of the Multiverse. With Ulamog and Kozilek destroyed on this plane, Emrakul was the last one left, and she had no issue with [[spoiler:sealing herself in the Moon]]. All that can be surmised is that, either she kept her word to [[spoiler:Jace]] to end the conflict if he beat her, or she no longer wanted to "play" because she was not embraced by the people, as expected. If they do have a greater purpose, what is it? What would happen if they were all destroyed?

* Gideon's BelligerentSexualTension with Chandra makes a lot more sense when you consider a couple of facts from his origin story. First, we now know that he's from the city of Akros, which is heavily associated with ''both'' white ''and'' red mana, so red's ethos would have been a part of his most fundamental ideals. Second, before he became a paladin and heiromancer, he was a street thief and vigilante. There's a strong strain of chaos in him, even if he keeps it mostly repressed these days.

Added DiffLines:

* Twice Jace has had an argument with another Planeswalker when he asked them to help him save a plane and they refused. Ugin wouldn't help him kill the Eldrazi because of the potential consequences, and he's worried about the whole multiverse, and Tamiyo wouldn't help him stop Avacyn because she felt Innistrad was SomebodyElsesProblem. In both cases the other party was detached because to them AMillionIsAStatistic; there are thousands of planes with millions of people on all of them, so misfortune befalling one plane is of no concern to them. Jace disagrees, because he's a mind mage; reading all these people's minds forces him to have to deal with them as people, so he's a lot more willing to help.

*** This also allows the Madness keyword to slot in nicely as it allows you to cast spells while you're discarding cards and "losing your mind".

** Which makes the ability of her card all the more chilling: take over your opponent for one turn, and they take an extra turn afterwards. It is actually so tied into the lore [[FridgeHorror it is a brilliant stroke]] [[{{Foreshadowing}} of foreshadowing]] - Emrakul used this ability to take control of [[spoiler:Tamiyo, and used her to seal herself in the Moon]].

* [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=398495 Gilt-Leaf Winnower's]] destruction ability seems completely arbitrary (not the non-elf part, of course, but the differing power and toughness.) Until you stop to realize that Lorwyn elves are completely and utterly obsessed with beauty at all costs. The cornerstone of beauty? Symmetry.

*** As of Eldritch Moon, things just continue getting worse. You never get to see the Eldrazi creating spawn, and you start to see why. The Eldrazi...or at the very least Emrakul...simply mutates the local fauna into something more Lovecraftian. This on top of the MindRape that is evident in the cults arising, both in Zendikar and Innistrad makes one wonder just how much of the Eldrazi and how much was [[IWasOnceAMan at one time human.]]

** We know now. '''[[FaceHeelTurn Nahiri]] called it to Innistrad.'''



* It was a bit of a disappointment to some snake tribal deck players that the [[SnakePeople Naga]] that appear in Tarkir do not have the creature type: snake. As disappointing as it is, the new creature type 'naga' make sense in-universe. The Nagas claimed to have descended from the lineage of the great dragons of the past, of course they wouldn't want to be associated with the snakes. Why be related to the snakes when your entire race are descendants of dragons?

* The reveal that Emrakul is the BigBad of the Shadows over Innistrad block seems to come out of left field. Until you consider the fact that, while Ulamog and Kozilek are the Titans of Hunger and Distortion respectively, Emrakul is the Titan of ''Corruption''. Ulamog and Kozilek are obvious because they respectively eat everything in sight and distort reality around them. But corruption is subtle. It worms its way unseen into you, and then eats you from inside out. You never see it coming until it's too late.
