The release of Mirrodin Besieged changed the rules of drafting. Prior to Mirrodin Besieged, packs were opened in release order, oldest to newest. Beginning with Mirrodin Besieged draft packs are now opened newest to oldest.

Doesn’t that change again with Dominaria? Since draft formats will now only ever be one set? – Editor

Duel Decks: Ajani vs. Nicol Bolas (2011)

The version of Lightning Helix that was printed in this set features Ajani in the art in an effort to help the card fit the flavor of the set.

Innistrad (2011)

The art for Liliana of the Veil had to go through some revisions before the art was finalized. Originally, Liliana was adorned with skulls and walking down a skeletal staircase. This art was considered to be too much like a Rakdos bloodwitch and did not match the promotional art of Liliana that was already released.
