Kiku's Shadow Magic

Legendary assassin Kiku, Night's Flower uses magic instead of messy knives to kill, mystically animating her mark's shadow and forcing it to do the dirty work. She leaves a flower as a calling card; note how she seems to be dropping one on the viewer in her art (meaning the perspective is that of one who's being slain by her):
Kiku, Night's Flower
The Saviors of Kamigawa removal spell Kiku's Shadow represents an instance of Kiku's shadow-assassination magic. See how the ponytailed mage is being, er, skewered by his own shadow?
Also note how the shadow's eyes are pink flowers -- an element of Kiku's calling card.
