So with Sagas becoming deciduous and more common quite quickly, I'd thought it be fun to see what Saga names people could come up with. It's not really a game, but I guess the ground rules would be:

1. It has to be related to something cannon, though there is loose license (like Amonkhet getting something based off Egyptian myth).

2. The title has to fit a card name line.

3. Ought include a small explanation in a spoiler/link to source material (Just to let people have a slight guessing game if your title matches what they thought it would).

4. Feel free to make the name tongue and cheek

Examples:

The Isolation of Malvos
Spoiler


Kiki-Jiki's Delivery Service
Spoiler


I would make this a Custom Card game, but I figured it'd be nice to let #WotC peeps to look though/join in if they want.

When I was imagining a Kamigawa Return, I included sagas in my brainstorming process for notable events from the Kami War/Kamigawa. One of my ideas was to make "transforming Sagas" that had legendary creatures on the other side as a sort of "living story" type thing.(not sure how that would work with the rules though) For some examples:

The Fall of Minamo
Spoiler


The Battle of Silk
Spoiler


The Unspeakable Tale
Spoiler


The Cycle of Life and DeathThe Thankless Child

I'm kinda late to this whole thing, but there are a lot of cool ideas in here!

Some Sagas I'd like to see...

The Fall of the House of Vess
Spoiler


Love Song of Night and Day
Spoiler


Song of All
Spoiler


The Fall of Oneah
Spoiler


Champion's Trial
Spoiler


Ith's Imprisonment
Spoiler


Greensleeves' Crusade
Spoiler


Serra's Sacrifice
Spoiler


Time of Dark
Spoiler


The Fall of Sarpadia
Spoiler


Dochyel's Ride
Spoiler


Most of the stuff on my wishlist isn't really hard to guess from the name, but I could probably come up with some more Sagas that are named after obscure short stories or in-universe texts. Saga names that are either actual stories/novels or in-universe texts are my favourites anyway, like Chainer's Torment or The Antiquities War.
