Modern after Dominaria

In short: Dominaria has a little impact on Modern format.

A bit longer:

Damping Sphere
This uncommon card has the highest potential to find home in sideboard of Modern decks, thanks to its cheap cost and effectivnes against Storm, KCI or Ad Nauseam. Damping Sphere also has added utility against Tron.

Karn, Scion of Urza
A colourless draw engine and token generator certainly provides an exciting package. High starting loyalty. is nice addition too. But still it costs four mana. It is a lot in Modern format. Especially, unban of Jace proved it.

Goblin Warchief + Skirk Prospector
Come back of Goblins? The reprint of Goblin Warchief and Skirk Prospector bring they in Modern format. I think Goblin Chieftain is a better card most of the time.

Cast Down
Next removal, worse than Fatal Push, but better than Go for the Throat, which seems less play lately.

Naban, Dean of Iteration
Only one deck has enough Wizards to play Naban. I'm speaking of Merfolk deck. Merfolk Wizard is Silvergill Adept, Harbinger of the Tides and Master of Waves.

Mox Amber
To make full use of Mox you need to cast it your first turn and be able to tap it. Cheap one mana legends, such as Isamaru, Hound of Konda and Kytheon, Hero of Akros enable it. Both cards are white. I can't think of other playable one mana legends. At this moment Mox will not see any play, but this card someday may become a Modern staple.
