Quote from Zordrath »Yeah, I totally get why this is Mythic, but I wish Wizards were at least honest about it. It's not the first time they're obviously breaking the promise they made about Mythics when they introduced them.
Is this Mythic because it would otherwise break limited? No. Recruiter of the Guard was just recently printed at rare in a set designed for drafting.
Is it Mythic because a random dude who conscripts 2-power creatures into the army feels as epic and legendary as Akroma? Certainly not.
That pretty much only leaves the external factor: It's Mythic because it's expensive and Wizards doesn't want the average player to have too good a chance of getting it. Which, you know, is perfectly fine from a business perspective, but at least go on and admit it. Everybody knows anyway. Just like they know the increased price of Masters sets is driven solely by the secondary market, considering these sets probably don't even cost half as much to make as regular ones.
