Blooki's Puzzle #5 - A "What's Missing?" Puzzle

Horn of Plenty, Native Village, Possession.

Here are a few more triples following the same rule that would be completed by the same missing card.
Chapel, Gardens, Tribute.
Ambassador, Followers, Contraband.
Feast, Haven, Envoy.
Ironworks, Bishop, Masquerade.

Hint: There are numerous combinations of triples that can be substituted for these three cards that will still cause the puzzle to work. However, the fourth missing card is unique. Additionally, the fourth card can serve as the first card as well!

Any hint?

The property involves the text of the cards.

Groups that share this property will always come in fours.

The missing card must be in all groups with this property.

Possession, Tribute, Envoy, Contraband and Masquerade all reference your left-hand opponent. Is this feature, or some reference to it, part of the idea?

Centuries later, archaeologists discover the remains of your ancient civilization.

Evidence of thriving towns, Pottery, roads, and a centralized government amaze the startled scientists.

Finally, they come upon a stone tablet, which contains but one mysterious phrase!

'ISOTROPIC WILL RETURN!'

I definitely see the logic here, but Gardens is sticking in my craw while trying to make sense of the whole list of triples.

Incidentally, as a possible sign of madness, this thread has gotten "The Hokey Pokey" stuck in my head.

Nevermind, got it! Neat ;D

I was going to offer another triple, but I realized (tiny hint) Blooki's list completely exhausts the possibilities for one of the three slots in the triple.

Even after reading all this, I still have no idea what the pattern is.  Can it be spoiled?
