D: D: D: Wizards of the Coast has done it again. They just made the new Magic set, Time Spiral, a sneakily awesome treat. The sortable spoiler is now available here. The set itself is made up of new cards, and each is a homage to a card from ages past. However, the temporal chaos does not end there.
Wizards is reprinting old cards as part of Time Spiral. Not with new art and the new frame, mind you. They are using the old artwork with the classic frame. These cards are called Timeshifted and are printed with a purple expansion symbol. (Originally, cards printed after the Stronghold set had black symbols for commons, silver symbols for uncommons, and gold symbols for rares.) Timeshifted cards also appear one per pack, and there are more of them in the set than the gold rares. Thus, each Timeshifted card is more than 50% rarer than the regular rares. Thus it is possible to actually get more than one rare in each Time Spiral booster pack. And yes. Akroma, Angel of Wrath is back as a Timeshift. Of course, you might just get a lowly Squire as your Timeshift, but the mere possibility of actually getting two awesome rares is just fantastic. The nostalgia deluge continues! I really look forward to this. Vinci was planning to buy a box. Now I’m in on it.
