I had a little extra flavor in the last show notes, so I decided to continue that tradition:

As Mike and I discussed in the podcast, the card name Sleep (much to our surprise) went unused until strong>Magic 2010. We found it odd because early Magic is notorious for its overuse of one-word names on cards that are not necessarily perfect fits for those names. As it turns out, the first spell to be concepted as putting a creature to sleep is way back in the set Legends. What is even stranger is that the card could have easily been given the name Sleep, but it was instead given a setting-specific name. If only the individual working on names for Legends had been in the same mindset when naming our poor friends Backfire, Undertow, and Teleport.
