* Out of all the Eldrazi on Zendikar, only 3 ever start with the letter "A" [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=193429]][[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=407550]][[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=401803]]. All these cards have something else in common besides starting letter: creation, be it of more Scions or of things from your graveyard. And what letter is associated with creation? The Greek letter Α, or alpha. Everything else is [[IncrediblyLamePun merely means to the end.]]

* The Kaladesh Inventions cards are mostly reprints of older cards that in-universe are re-invented on Kaladesh. Some of the reprinted cards are so overpowered that they are banned in Legacy and/or restricted in Vintage. Everything at the Inventors' Fair was stolen by Tezzeret. Now, what if some of these inventions had been presented there?

* 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".
