Creature - Incarnation
When ~ dies, choose an opponent secretly.
Exile ~ from your graveyard and reveal the chosen player: Choose one:
-All creatures chosen player controls get -3/-3 until end of turn.
-Chosen player loses half of their life, rounded down.
Activate this ability only if you control three or more swamps, and if ~ has only entered your graveyard from the battlefield this turn.

Cast this card only after attackers have been declared.
Each attacking creature deals 1 damage to itself, then the attacking player changes the target of attack of half of the remaining attacking creatures (rounded up and randomly chosen) to another valid player or planeswalker.
As long as Abysmal Coordination is in your graveyard, at the start of each opponent's combat step, a random creature that player controls gets -2/-0 until end of turn.
Can't beat the enemy with brute force? Confuse them and stall the game out while everyone tries to figure out how to randomly choose 50% of attacking creatures. Long after the spell has been cast, it randomly generates defensive value for you.

The new artwork on Vengeful Rebirth is nice; I see that Seb MicKinnon is taking inspiration from Rebecca Guay and/or Terese Nielsen in that image.
I really wish that I had waited to purchase a Lord of Extinction for my Mimeoplasm EDH deck until it was reprinted in this set, as doing so would have saved me a great amount of money, but I made that purchase months before this set was even announced, so there was no way that I could have known about it.
The reprint of Reviving Vapors is very nice, and I may purchase a copy if I ever build a white/blue EDH deck.
Most of the lands were great, but did the game really need another reprint of Terramorphic Expanse? Also, Rogue's Passage and Thespian's Stage were great, but those spaces could have been used for lands that need reprints much more severely, such as Reflecting Pool, Meteor Crater, or Vesuva.
In conclusion, I shall purchase some cards from this set, but not too many, and I certainly shall not purchase any boost packs or booster boxes. This set did have some nice cards, but I feel that it overall was slightly underwhelming for it being the final masters set for the foreseeable future, so I hope that whatever WotC has planned for reprint sets in the future is a worthwhile replacement.

Here's something to consider, instead of Glorious Anthem effects what about more tools to make the deck more aggressive. Yes, +1/+1 for your creatures does help with the combat phase, but consider that you only need to attack for 10 points of 'damage'.
Here's some thing to look at:
Another attack vector:
Crucible of Worlds
Pretty expensive but worth it:

I did playtest with Alesha for a while, but found that she was a bit slow and not all that useful; I rarely end up putting creatures other than Valor and the Dearly Departed in my graveyard, because the excess discard is usually just lands, which I only need a few of anyway - there usually wasn't anything for her to return from the graveyard.
I also ran Thatcher Revolt in this deck for quite a while, but eventually took it out because it seemed like a bad deal - why pay one mana per token that I have to sacrifice at the end of the turn, when I can pay the same rate with Gather the Townsfolk for tokens that stay on the battlefield (plus the fact that Gather the Townsfolk works better with my curve)?
I do see where you're coming from vis-a-vis the removal, but in my meta Path is very much worthwhile (a few too many Phyrexian Obliterators crawling around, among other things).
