We've visited many planes in this game's history, and some are more fascinating than others. However, almost all of them deserve a second (or third, and so forth) visit, as we know there are still stories to be told in those settings. A most interesting thing to happen is having a mechanic that flavorfully interacts either positively or negatively with a mechanic from the last block to visit that plane. For this week's challenge, design a card that is decidedly set in a future expansion (think Future Sight), featuring a plane that's been used as a setting for a prior block, and using a mechanic that interacts somehow with a mechanic from the most recent venture to that plane. The mechanic need not be new or keyworded.

Some of my favorites this week:

Fade Into the Night- I loved the keyword that you had, part of why I was so interested in helping it work. A happy smile Mechanically, the card's effect needs some building around, which is a plus in my book since it encourages playing cards with ETB abilities (like Faeries... huh...)

Vizier's Edict- Loved the take on wrathing based off names. Works amazingly with morph/manifest and the flavor is on point. Really great card.

Honorable Retainer- I know this card is simple, but that's part of what drew me to it. The flavor lines up perfectly with the mechanics and I love how they work together mechanically as well. Great design.

Nyx Fragment- Fits in perfectly with Theros flavor. I could honestly see this being printed, it's just such a great design mechanically and flavorfully.
