* PoorCommunicationKills: Millennia old Planeswalkers like Sorin have a hard time explaining things to their peers. In Sorin's case in particular, it caused Nissa (who distrusted him to start with because he was a vampire) to break the seal on the Eldrazi, and Nahiri to fight him until he sealed her in the Helvault for a thousand years, which came back to bite him when she got free and found the Eldrazi free on Zendikar.

** Nicol Bolas, [[MeaningfulName once you take apart where the parts of his name come from]]. "Nicol" is derived from the German "nickel", meaning "devil". "Bolas" seems to come from [[ArsGoetia the Goetic demon Glasya-Labolas]], whose name is occasionally rendered as "Glasya La Bolas". In other words, "Bolas" is some sort of demonic epithet.

** In Ixalan the dinosaurs are [[ThePowerOfTheSun sun-powered]]. While not any more ''evil'' than any regular animal, it can't be pleasant to have a mindless predator bursting you with vicious sunlight.

** Amonkhet has, in addition to a more normal sun, a second sun that's associated with a prophecy. That sun descends much slower, and in the living memory of the people of the world, it has never set.

* InfantImmortality: Averted ''hard'' during the Shadows over Innistrad/Eldritch Moon storyline. There are references to children dying to werewolf maulings, angel attacks, and being ''burned alive'' by the Church of Avacyn in an attempt to purify them, [[spoiler: though this is actually the work of the demon-worshiping Skirsdag cult in an attempt to sow disorder and distrust in the church.]]
