I dunno. at $10+ a pack, there is far too little value in the rares and mythics so far. Especially with two of the mythics banned in EDH.

I'm glad some of these are getting reprinted but they don't belong at a *Masters price point.

All that ramp at uncommon ....... Battlement reprinted at uncommon ........ unless there are some more mana ramp dudes and ramp spells waiting for us at common U/G Ramp Into Fatties looks pretty shafted.

Too bad there could never be a true Iconic Masters set.

This one feels...forced. Too much modern garbage. Where are my Demonic Tutors, Shivan Dragons, Royal Assassins, Giant Spiders, etc. I see Serra Angel at least.

/get off my lawn :D

It would have to be a Gold-borderd not-legal-for-competition release. Too many reserve cards.

Yeah... Not very iconic for older players... But if you ask my students at school iconic means something very different.

That said, I still like the cards. Not so much the price of packs.

Bladewing to an uncommon seems odd. The only other generals to have that were from Legends or Kamigawa IIRC.

And of course reprints from Legends (in MTGO - many were downgraded to Common or Uncommon). I seem to recall some of the non-reserve list Legends reprints have also been in paper below rare, such as Tor Wauki and Kei Takahashi.

Bladewing at uncommon is WotCs way of forcing you to draft Dragons in B/R.

If there are no other Dragons in red and/or black that are uncommon your only easily available creature both for Foul-Tongue and Draconic Roar will be an uncommon no other deck would want, which makes your draft easier because you don't have to rely on rares and mythics. And red seems to have another big round of discard-draw, so you can discard your dragons and reanimate them with Bladewing.


However:

IF THERE ARE NO OTHER DRAGON CREATURES AT UNCOMMON OR LOWER RARITY Bladewing at uncommon is a huge pile of garbage during the draft because you ARE NOT guaranteed another dragon that you could reanimate, and chaining multiple Bladewings together is a nonbo.
