As far as the benefit of the rest of Magic is concerned, gold cards in Legends were executed perfectly. They got all the excitement a designer could hope out of a splashy new mechanic without using up any of the valuable design space. Truly amazing.

Lost in this thought, Kalyntri almost missed the lone dark storm cloud up ahead. A single small cloud of blackness amid an otherwise endless blue sky. The air had the tangy scent of a fresh storm, recently passed. As Kalyntri flew lower, he could see a small ring of islands dotting the water beneath cloud. And there, in the middle of the islands, in the water, was a man. No, he was on the water. And not a man, but a merfolk.
Good gods, was Talrand suicidal? Or perhaps simply that dumb and delusional..."I guess dragons don't own a thesauruses (thesauri?)...
DRAKES ARE SENTIENT!? I always thought drakes were to dragons like chimps are to people.

Those who fear the darkness have never seen what the light can do.
I've seen angels fall from blinding heights. But you yourself are nothing so divine. Just next in line.

It makes no sense for artifacts either. Or enchantments, for that matter. "Well, you see, Jimmy cast this spell to flood the mountain, but then the gorgon just looked at the water really hard and it went away."
I also like the setup here of basing Talrand's strength off of an alliance against dragons - it seems like he's put himself on rails running to a conflict with Bolas, a far more apt enemy than Thundermaw, and I'm looking forward to the rude awakening.
He gave the Phyrexians attention because they have the capability to spread to and conquer other planes, despite a lack of direct planeswalking magic.
