As someone who proudly owns a foil Bloomtender and remembers what happened with the reprint of Devoted Druid, I'm not not looking forward to the impact this will likely cause.
Thanks for responding.
That's actually reassuring and somewhat good news to anticipate for me since I traded my only copy once the price rose too high to ignore when I honestly felt the card didn't (and still doesn't) justify its tag whatsoever according to my own internal instinctive barometer. It's one of those cards which got printed during my hiatus and I never locked in a playset because I honestly never felt it was necessary for my builds upon returning a few years after. Even though I appreciate its ramp potential, it's still a vulnerable 1/1 2-drop, and there's a part of me which would still prefer paradise druid who protects herself and is much more likely to survive a turn after entering. Also, now that Jund has a hierarch of its own, we'll probably see fewer and fewer 2drop ramp creatures in general. Devoted druid got way too high for what was originally a common (the only reason being because that set had a low print run) and was reasonably expected to crash upon being eventually reprinted (at any rarity below rare), so the result was unsurprising. However, when it comes to cards which were originally rare (or mythic) and get reprinted in box sets as opposed to packs, it's more difficult for me to evaluate the likely degree of impact on current market prices.
