I designed this card in my favorite weekly meeting, the Card Design Workshop. This is a sort of "club" that any WotC employee who is interested in MTG card design may attend to flex their creative muscles.

Each week we get a prompt for some design hole that needs new ideas. On August 13, 2021, the workshop got this prompt:

Card details: A blue rare enchantment, instant, or sorcery. Its name is “Signature Spells.” We’re looking for a top-down design of a Wizard ability in D&D.

It is how Scryfall was handling Alchemy sets. "A" was already taken by Art Series cards.
