* [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?name=zendikar%20resurgent Zendikar Resurgent]], from Oath of the Gatewatch. Finally, after all the horror of the Zendikar storyline, all the torment and suffering brought on by the [[EldritchAbomination Eldrazi]], Zendikar is finally safe. Ulamog and Kozilek are gone. Zendikar can heal. The nightmare is finally over, and we have the Gatewatch on standby to take down Emrakul and anyone else who dares threaten the safety of the planes.

* [[http://magiccards.info/pc/en/140.html Timbermare]] was created as a tribute to pro player Jamie Wakefield's wife Marilyn (nicknamed "Lovely Mare"), who died of ovarian cancer. Keep in mind that Magic sets are designed about a year in advance, and ''Planar Chaos'' came out about a year after her death, meaning that the card was designed almost immediately after the tragedy. [[http://www.starcitygames.com/php/news/article/13483.html The full story.]]

* Sarkhan, [[http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/uncharted-realms/tarkir-dragons-2015-02-25 upon arriving at the new dragon-filled Tarkir]], runs and flies around as happy as can be, kid-in-a-candystore style, only briefly stopping to give hugs to a goblin he once knew in the old timeline.

** Still, the meritocracy angle, [[http://el-jarado.tumblr.com/post/114023481933/once-again-white-green-is-the-nicest-color as pointed out here]], [[FridgeHorror is a bit depressing]], considering that Dromoka is a [[TheSocialDarwinist social darwinist]], if a bit nicer than most.

* The Dromoka of Tarkir, in the new timeline, are basically a big, giant familial meritocracy in which dragons have a bunch of 'children' adopted, and everyone is welcome. Unlike most of the other Dragonlords, Dromoka has nothing but respect and protection for her subjects, and really, just look at the art for [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?name=Dromoka%27s+Gift Dromoka's Gift]]. She's just [[SoProudOfYou so proud]] of the brave warrior to have earned one of her scales, like a parent at a child's graduation.
** Another thing to consider in the Dromoka is that unlike any other clan, the dragons and non-dragons freely speak to eachother, with mutual respect. Not even the Ojutai can claim that.

* Ojutai's SoProudOfYou moment as his student Narset surpasses him. [[spoiler: Even if it could be argued he has ulterior motives of wanting to keep the truth of his subjugation of the former Jeskai and the existence of Ugin hidden when he implicitly exhorts Narset to planeswalk.]]
