Planar Chaos/Trivia

From MTG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Most of the cards in Planar Chaos were inspired by cards from Magic's past.[1][2][3]

General allusions[edit | edit source]

  • Calciderm is the only timeshifted member of the vanishing cycle (see cycles section on the set page); it is a colorshifted Blastoderm.(with Vanishing 4 rather than Fading 3, usually producing about the same lifespan).
  • Piracy Charm is the only timeshifted member of the Charm cycle (see Cycles section on set's page).
  • Spellshift refers to Polymorph; whereas Polymorph affects creatures, Spellshift affects instant and sorcery spells.
  • Synchronous Sliver is the only member of the common Sliver cycle (see Cycles section on set's page) to have an ability not appearing on a Sliver from a past expansion.
  • Timbermare refers to Thundermare. Timbermare was made as a tribute to the wife of longtime Magic writer Jamie Wakefield who had sadly passed away from cancer. Jamie always referred to her as his “lovely Mare”.[14][15]
