** A more storyline related one: In ''Oath of the Gatewatch'''s storyline, the finishing blow in the Eldrazi came when Nissa (a green mage) casted a spell that helped her channel a massive amount of mana from her own lifeforce and from Zendikar itself into Chandra (a red mage), which then casted a powerful fire spell. Any old-time fan will recognize this as the oldest combo in the history of Magic - [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=144 Channel]] + [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Discussion.aspx?multiverseid=197 Fireball]].

* 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."

Although there are implications that the consequences are far more dire.

* BigDamnHeroes: A few examples throughout the series. Notably Chandra in Oath of the Gatewatch. The card Impeccable Timing seems to represent this happening too.

* 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]].
