* AluminumChristmasTrees: The universe represented in ''Theros'' is based on Greek mythology and history, filled with hydras, gorgons, and centaurs. With that in mind, players might be forgiven for thinking that Vulpine Goliath ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin an enormous fox]]) was an AssPull, but [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teumessian_fox it's not]].

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: The expansion ''Oath of the Gatewatch'' has a group of [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=407623 cards]] [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=407540 of]] [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=407570 different]] [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=407650 colors]], each depicting a planeswalker promising to keep watch, but no black version is present. Three expansions later, ''Eldritch Moon'' completes the theme with [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=414395 "Oath of Liliana"]], whose flavor text reads, "I'll keep watch. Happy now?"

* TheWorfEffect: "Hm, so, we have this group of planeswalkers called The Gatewatch, and we want to show the audience how powerful they are. How do we do that? Oh, I know! We'll have them kill two of the Eldrai titans in their first story! You know, those colossal, would-devouring monstrosities we've told the audience time and time again are nearly unstoppable and totally unkillable."
