Masters 25 Speculation and Wishlist
Posted on Jan. 21, 2018, 10:18 p.m. by DemonDragonJ
With the release of Masters 25 being not very far away from the present, I wish to begin speculation about what cards may be reprinted in it and encourage others to do so, as well.
Some of my choices for reprints are Akroma's Memorial, Bitterblossom, Chromatic Lantern, Doubling Season, Privileged Position, and Rhystic Study, all of which are far more expensive than they should be, in my mind. Mirari's Wake has been reprinted a sufficient number of times in the recent past, so it does not need another reprint in this set.
I would very much like to see some actually good dual lands in this set, preferably the shocklands or filter lands, but reprints of the enemy-colored checklands, preferably with new art, would be very nice, as well.
A reprint of Atraxa, Praetors' Voice would be great, considering how much more expensive she is than the other four generals from Commander 2016. Reprints of both Countersquall and Voidslime would be nice, to lower their prices, and Absorb, to have it in the new card frame.
I shall add further cards to my list as I think of them.
What does everyone else say about this? What card would you like to be reprinted in Masters 25?
January 21, 2018 10:26 p.m.
Thats my list, it is based on some cards that I need for decks.
January 21, 2018 10:39 p.m.
I would like to see these, some of which are personal wants and offers I feel that have climbed just too much in price over time:
Leyline of the Void along with the rest of the cycle.

I just bought a Grim Tutor, would be my luck that it gets a reprint and tanks to like 20$.
January 22, 2018 9 a.m.
I vote for filter lands, I think everybody would love to finally see those redone. As for big ticket items, Liliana of the Veil would be nice.
January 22, 2018 12:06 p.m.
Yeah I agree on the filter lands, I would like to see those again as I found it rather odd they only reprinted the one in Iconic Masters afterall.

Tarmogoyf (maybe one more printing will get him into the sub-$50 range)
Some of these are just for edh reasons, but I feel like I could build anything in modern if I could just finish my set of Chalice of the Voids and get the set of goyfs.
January 22, 2018 1:10 p.m.
I would like to see the boon cycle reprinted maybe the x Sun's zenith. The urza tron lands. Phyrexian Obliterator the artifact lands. Sorry if I rambled

I think it'd be swell to see reprints from older sets with less supply. Goryo's Vengeance comes to mind as a card that wouldn't be nearly as pricey if it weren't ~ten years old. And so forth -- there are quite a few staples from original RAV/Kamigawa/Mirrodin that a reprinting (or a downshift in rarity) could be really good for. Utopia Sprawl, looking at you...
I think it goes without saying there will be a few chase rares in there that are worth $50-$80, like Lili/Goyf/Scapeshift/etc. So my wishlist is to get some reprints of cheaper, nicher staples to lower the entry price for beginning Eternal/Modern players.
I wouldn't even mind some fresher reprints like Nahiri, Emrakul Promised End, or Archangel Avacyn, actually.

I think the following would be good bets at rare or mythic:
January 22, 2018 8:46 p.m.
January 22, 2018 10:10 p.m.
January 31, 2018 9:31 p.m.
The packaging for this set has been revealed, and I am not particularly pleased that Jace, the Mind Sculptor is being reprinted, again, but I am very pleased that Azusa, Lost but Seeking is being reprinted, as she has never been reprinted, before now.
February 3, 2018 12:25 a.m.
Again with Jace? Honestly, I just want some stinking variety. It's like they have the same little pool of cards they pick from every single year. They'll probably have Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Sharuum the Hegemon too.

Now that 1 card from Kamigawa has been spoiled, Wizards, UNLEASH THE REST OF KAMIGAWA! Through the Breach! Goryo's Vengeance! Minamo, School at Water's Edge! Kira, Great Glass-Spinner! Oboro, Palace in the Clouds! Mikokoro, Center of the Sea! Unleash the flood of neglected, yet perfect, reprints!
February 3, 2018 8:15 a.m.
February 3, 2018 11:59 a.m.
That looks like either blight steel or dark steel colosos on the pack
February 3, 2018 2:24 p.m.
Although I myself am rather unsure on this, some people think its rather Arcbound Ravager just with new art.
February 4, 2018 9:26 a.m.
February 7, 2018 8:44 p.m.
Phyrexian Obliterator has been spoiled! Although I currently do not need another copy of it, I am very pleased that it is beign reprinted, to make it more affordable. I do dislike how the Phyrexian watermark on the reprint is different from the watermark on the original printing, but that is a minor difference.
February 10, 2018 3:56 p.m.
I also would like to see Undermine and Recoil reprinted, simply to keep them inexpensive and readily available, and, although Time Warp was recently reprinted (thankfully), it still could use another reprint to keep its price low.
February 17, 2018 4:35 p.m.
My wishlist of stuff....I need Alternative art for all of these.
BerserkKitchen FinksBoggart Ram-GangSwans of Bryn ArgollForced FruitionUncle Istvan ....it has nostalgic value to me OK?! Is that OK? A new Garruk! Immaculate MagistrateMountain Goat .....don't look at me like that.....I want M.G
February 18, 2018 12:12 a.m.
I also would like to see Ihsan's Shade in this set, as I am certain that that card would look great in the new border style and with new artwork.
February 18, 2018 8:35 a.m.
Full spoilers begin tomorrow, and if the designers initial comments are any indication, this should be an exciting set, even in the common and uncommon categories. Hedging bets that pre-sale box values are going up this week.
February 25, 2018 10:51 p.m.
Called Chalice and Recruiter...now for Crucible and Port, and then Ill be quite pleased.
February 26, 2018 11:40 a.m.
I wish they could have gave Chalice of the Void new art, but oh well, a reprint is still appreciated even if its at mythic after all.

Today's previews were a mixed batch; first, for the positives: Imperial Recruiter was in dire need of a reprint, so it being reprinted is very awesome. I did not need a reprint of Pillage, but having alternate artwork for it is very nice. The reprints of Red Elemental Blast and Blue Elemental Blast are very nice, as well, especially with their new artwork.
With that being said, Eladamri's Call would be an amazing reprint, as it is one of the best creature-searching cards in the game.
On the other side, Gisela and the red Akroma did not at all need reprints; it would have been much better to reprint Sigarda and Akroma's Memorial, the latter of which very badly needs a reprint. I am especially displeased with the reprint of Blood Moon, as that card is supremely unfun to play against, and this reprint will make it less expensive and, therefore, more abundant.
While a reprint of Vindicate will lower its price, I really hope that it does not lower the price of the original promo version, which I purchased for $20 (at one point, it was worth over $100, but it currently is worth only $40, although that is still more than what I paid for it).
Overall, I would say that this set has been more positive than negative, thus far, so I hope that the remaining cards are as good as those that were revealed today.

Sundering Titan confirmed to be the mysterious last pack art.

I think Wizards is doing a great job with M25. A lot of people seem to be up in arms about some low value reprints at mythic (which is silly because you want your value at rare and uncommon anyways), but I love the nostalgia factor wizards is throwing into this set. So far M25 is turning into exactly what I had hoped for, a big nostalgia trip.
February 27, 2018 11:10 a.m.
Also, Rishadan Port just got its reprint
February 27, 2018 11:13 a.m.
Wow, Rishadan Port AND the Flash-Hulk combo? Seems like a fun limited set! I just wish that Chalice wasn't printed as a mythic :( Bridge at mythic seems fine for limited, but chalice should have been rare for people to get their sets (myself included).

February 27, 2018 11:19 a.m.
Delta-117- We're in total agreement on that one. I still need a set of Opals for the secretly most competitive jank deck in Modern - cheerios!

Would be really cool if this set takes a page out of Unstable's book and prints multiple versions of cards with different artworks. Imagine getting every version of Dark Ritual printed in one set!
