mande, yes, they definitely would look awesome with new artwork, and I also would like to see Sol'kanar the Swamp King and possibly other legendary creatures from the original Legends set reprinted, as well. The five primordial dragons from the Invasion block would also be welcome reprints, as well.

Guftders, another card that I believe has no reason to be on the reserved list is Thunder Spirit, which is a very awesome card, making its inclusion on the list very tragic. If not for power level or monetary cost, why would a card be on the reserved list? Is that not the reason for the reserved list existing?

I believe that everyone here needs to stop hoping for reprints of the original dual lands, because, even if they were not on the reserved list, they are still too powerful to ever be reprinted (which is why they are on the reserved list). We should instead hope for further reprints of the shocklands, because they are the closest that WotC shall ever come to reprinting the original dual lands, although I am hoping for reprints of the Shadowmoor/Eventide filter lands, because those lands are now terribly expensive.

This was an excellent story, especially with the tension between Samut and Djeru; I do hope that Djeru redeems himself by the end of this block, and does not die a senseless (from Samut's perspective) death.
I imagine that Bolas shall be appearing soon, so I expect his arrival to be epic and supremely dramatic.
I definitely do not believe that Gideon shall die in this arc, because he still has to return to Theros, so perhaps he may die after he returns there.

TheDevicer, yes, if I ever do complete the custom set that I am building, these cards shall be either commons or uncommons.

It was great to have Samut and Djeru's backstory revealed, and I now believe that it is safe to presume that Djeru shall appear as a legendary creature in Hour of Devastation. I also hope that he and Samut can reconcile, since they were originally such great friends.
This is slightly off-topic, but is Ifnir (as mentioned on Archfiend of Ifnir) one of the three forgotten gods? That idea makes sense, to me.

Eladamri's Call and Cromat have never been reprinted, so I would like to see them reprinted in this set, and Worldly Tutor also should be here, as well, since it was left out of Eternal Masters in favor of Green Sun's Zenith.
As for iconic creatures, my predictions are as follows:
Angels: it is very safe to presume that both Serra Angel and Akroma, Angel of Wrath shall be in this set, hopefully, with new artwork for both, and I also would like to see Angelic Arbiter, Shepherd of the Lost, Angel of Jubilation, Pristine Angel, Iridescent Angel, Crypt Angel, Desolation Angel, Angel of Despair, Empyrial Archangel, and Archangel of Thune.
Demons: Lord of the Pit is one of the most iconic demons in the game, but some other excellent choices are Abyssal Persecutor, Archfiend of Depravity, Bloodgift Demon, Butcher of the Horde, Grinning Demon, Havoc Demon, Herald of Torment, Kagemaro, First to Suffer, Kuro, Pitlord, Lord of the Void, and Xathrid Demon.
Sphinxes: it was not until recently that sphinxes started to become powerful and efficient, but, thankfully, there ave been a number of excellent sphinxes made, recently, including Consecrated Sphinx, Conundrum Sphinx, Goliath Sphinx, Guardian of Tazeem, Medomai the Ageless, Sharuum the Hegemon, Sphinx of Jwar Isle, Sphinx of Magosi, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, and Sphinx of Uthuun.
Hydras: as with sphinxes, hydras only recently have been well-designed creatures, so some hydras that I would like to see in this set are Apocalypse Hydra, Domesticated Hydra, Genesis Hydra, Hydra Broodmaster, Hydra Omnivore, Kalonian Hydra, Khalni Hydra, Managorger Hydra, Primordial Hydra, Savageborn Hydra, Ulasht, the Hate Seed, and Vastwood Hydra.
Dragons: there are too many dragons for me too list all of them, but it is safe to presume that Shivan Dragon shall be in this set, hopefully with new artwork, and some of my top choices are Moonveil Dragon, Balefire Dragon, Dragon Tyrant, Ebon Dragon, Mirrorwing Dragon, Moltensteel Dragon, Scourge of Valkas, Stormbreath Dragon, Two-Headed Dragon, Utvara Hellkite, Vampiric Dragon, Viashivan Dragon, and Hellkite Overlord.
Wow, I certainly typed many card names in this post: I hope that I did not miss any.

Here are two cards that I designed for my own custom set that I am building, which features sun worship and a "light versus darkness" theme, although I do not wish to say too much about that at the moment, since my plan is still in its early phases.
Strength of the Sun Show
Target creature gets +2/+2 until end of turn. If strength of the sun was kicked, that creature gains protection from the color of your choice until end of turn.
This card is essentially Giant Growth with an additional ability, one that can be used either offensively or defensively. It provides a slightly smaller bonus to power and toughness to prevent it from being too powerful.
Touch of the Sun Show
You gain hexproof until end of turn. If touch of the sun was kicked, you gain 5 life.
This card was modeled after cards such as Heroes' Reunion or Nourish, and it uses hybrid mana because I believe that such an effect can exist in either green or white alone, as well as those colors together. It protects a player from harm and also can increase their life, to further ensure their survival. Kicker shall be a prominent mechanic in my custom set, and cooperation between colors is also a strong theme, so the set shall have a large amount of multicolored cards.
What does everyone else think of these cards? Are they balanced and fairly costed, I hope?

I have not seen very many black/white/red EDH decks with Tariel, Reckoner of Souls as the general; Kaalia of the Vast is by far the most popular general of that color combination, with Zurgo Helmsmasher and Alesha, Who Smiles at Death being nearly as popular.
I myself have a deck with Tariel as the general, since angels are my favorite creatures in this game, so I wish to ask: how popular is Tariel as an EDH general? Why have there not been a great number of decks that feature her?

Since Kaladesh has a focus on artifacts, they are a potential target for being invaded by Phryexia, but I hope that WotC waits for some time before featuring Phyrexia in the story, again, since the multiverse's greatest villains need to have time to properly build their forces for a properly dramatic storyline. WotC waited many years since Bola's last appearance in the Alara block before featuring him again in the Amonkhet block, so I expect that they shall wait for several years, yet, before featuring Phyrexia, again.

Ceondoc, clayperce, I do not believe that Ixalan has any connection to Theros, but is isntead a renamed version of Atlazan from the leaked images, akin to how WotC registered a trademark for "Warlords of Khanar," but then abandoned it because that name was too similar to Warlords of Draenor by Blizzard Entertainment.
