No, not at all. I liked the name Reign of Chaos over Rain of Chaos because it sounds the same but has more meaning behind it. Plus it went better with the flavor text. I started playing Magic when I was nine year olds, back when Revised had just came out. So when I started playing PoE, chaos orbs always made me think of: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?name=chaos+orb
So when GGG announced Divination Cards I knew I wanted to make a card about: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?name=chaos+confetti
Which is itself a nod to a story(several paragraphs down): http://archive.wizards.com/Magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/feature/115

That pretty much summed up my experience with the Div card process. After my card went live and I was able to find it and where it dropped specifically, I was severely disappointed. My e-mails to GGG about it resulted in responses along the line of "It's working as intended" and "we can't tell you anything else". I had specifically asked as part of the design process that it have as many cards as possible so as to be like alteration shards for chaos orbs. I followed what was on the div card page and chose something with a pretty low rarity so that the card would be a common drop. I expected it to drop in multiple zones like Carrion Crow; instead it drops in Cruel and Merc Crossroads and the Village Ruins map. What that means is that the card pretty much never gets completed. No-one is going to farm Crossroads for a single chaos.
Glad to hear it's working better in Village Ruin. Yes, it was supposed to be Reign of Chaos but I was told that would cause copyright issues with WC3 so I had to settle for Rain of Chaos.
