No, you can't play in your limited Zendikar event with pre-Zendikar
No, we can't talk about which cards, how many have been inserted, or
where they came from.
Yes, the MTR already covers this somewhat new situation (foil Lightning
Bolts in Nemesis, anyone?).
If someone opens a "priceless treasure," they should keep it and enjoy.
The truck with the "deadly perils" boxes had a horrific accident, so the
only deadly perils this weekend are the traps across the table from you.

Quote from AzureShadowThis thread is full of idiots... Lightning Bolt is NOT being reprinted.
Many times has a writer in Wizards said so, because of the plain and simple fact that it's too powerful for what it costs. x/3 creatures shouldn't be able to die at instant speed for one mana without a signifigant drawback. (like PTE giving you a land)
I absolutely guarantee that LB will not be printed in M10, and you can quote me on that.

Quote from Lacosa83but this stuff are tournament legal?
Quote from urzassedativesFew things to make SURE everyone doesn't spam:
-Tourney rules have been updated to clarify that cards opened in packs not belonging to that set aren't limited legal, and if deck swaps are done, you keep the cards not belonging to the set.
-The cards replace the basic land in the pack
-The cards are likely 'super rare', but we have no confirmation or approximation of the rarity.
-This doesn't break the reserve list because these are existing copies of the cards inserted into packs. It doesn't technically put more into circulation...just recirculates cards.
-It appears that the qualifier for these cards is...they are on the reserve list.
