Figured it's time to start this up since spoilers will be coming sooner than we think. So what cards from Magics past do you think may see a reprinting in Hour of Devastation given what we have seen right now?
These two cards in particular sound like they could see a reprint given the kind of themes we have in the set:
The reason I'm picking these two in particular is that they really aren't set specific. Blowflies are a blight in hot climates in Latin and South America, and something like Crumbling Ashes fits the "dying world" theme that Amonkhet current exudes. In a world that is falling apart, would even the undead start to fade away? Also, -1/-1 counters are one thing that I'd expect to see in the second block along with tons more zombie support.
Would love innocent blood but it would be busted along fatal push in the format. Would be a nice answer to ulamog though and beef up wide strats like tokens. Pretty much nullifies all "tall" strats and makes zombies obscene though.
Would love to see the card in modern, however.
Is a great flavor fit for the trials I think. Especially Bontu's imo. Also feels very bolas-y.
I think sorcery speed and the symmetry don't make it a super far cry though, after all we already have to the slaughter which is one sided and instant speed...and gearhulkable.
Devastate? Though more likely we get a cycle of "Hour of X" cards, with Hour of Devastation being one of them.

MTGS Wikia Article about "New World Order"
Every time I read a comment about "Well if this card had card draw/trample/haste/indestructible/hexproof/life gain...", I think "You're missing the point." They're armchair developer comments that fail to take into account the card's role in the greater Limited and Standard environment. No, it may not be as good as whatever card you're comparing it to. There's a reason for that. Not every burn spell is Lightning Bolt, nor does it need to be or should be.
PSA to everyone who keeps forgetting about the Reserved List:
You're on a website dedicated to talking about MtG. You're only a few keystrokes away from finding out what cards are on the Reserved List. You're also only a few keystrokes away from finding out why some cards on the Reserved List got foil printings in FtV, as Judge promos, or whatnot, as well as why that won't happen again. Stop doing this.
