** While fans debated the quality of the ''Dominaria'' short stories released on Magic website, come Chapter 10, a certain Legendary MemeticMutation inducing Thallid makes its first appearance. The response from Reddit and Twitter's Magic community was an overwhelming "Squeeeeeeeee!" at the antics of Slimefoot and its Thallid babies aboard the ''Weatherlight''.

* Yahenni and Nissa's final conversation. When we first met Yahenni they were musing on what would happen to them after they die and their body dissipates. Here, Nissa answers the question: the Aether is what connects all the planes of the Multiverse, flowing from one world to another. After an Aetherborn dies, their Aether will flow throughout the multiverse for eternity. Yahenni considers this secret to be the greatest gift anyone's ever given them.

** Alesha's interactions with the nameless orc who gives her grief about her identity are pretty sweet too. She initially calls him out for passing up a kill that would have earned him the right to choose a name, but when she has a chance to see him fight, she comes to realize that his contributions are just as valuable as those of the warriors who make the kills. She pulls him aside after the battle and assures him that he shouldn't think of his accomplishments as not being glorious just because Mardu culture doesn't recognize them as such. To prove her point, she even calls up some of the clan's most distinguished warriors to testify about how this orc saved their lives in previous battles.

In turn, he rescinds his initial dismissiveness towards her identity and tells a story of her glory on the battlefield.

* It's been a long time coming, eleven years actually, but Magic is finally going back to the plane where it all started. For its 25th anniversary, the ''Dominaria'' set seems to have been designed from the ground up to be a love letter to Magic's origins and long time fans with cards like [[http://www.magicspoiler.com/mtg-spoiler/urzas-ruinous-blast/ Legendary Sorceries]] and [[https://shop.tcgplayer.com/magic/dominaria/fall-of-the-thran?partner=mtgtcg Enchantment Sagas]] that depict the most memorable scenes of the past. And the iconic ship of Magic's early storylines, the ''Weatherlight,'' has been raised and restored.

Then there's Nissa backing Chandra during her fight against Baral and later calming her down as she nearly performs a [[TakingYouWithMe suicide attack]] to take him down. Finally, Gideon - again - lets her have some time alone with her mother, who has been busy planning and commanding the rebellions and couldn't afford to spend time with her.
