Quote from Dunharrow »Quote from Trov »I must say that since the return of the core sets they have been spot on. Haven't been this interested in a core set since magic origins.
Good mix of interesting new cards and good reprints for eternal formats. Hope they keep this up
I don't disagree with your comments but I think it is funny to say that you haven't been this interested in a core set since Origins... Core 2019 being the only set since Origins.
Leyline + Cage could be reprinted now maybe because there is a lack of graveyard decks in the next year. Think of Crucible of Worlds and Scapeshift. They were not played in Standard at all. Leyline and Cage are very strong cards and I am guessing that if they had a graveyard theme they would not want to squash it with such powerful hate.
It also helps to sell packs of Core Sets.
I was thinking this too. No graveyard strategy with Standard's power level will survive this much hate, so they're doing this for reprints and reprints alone.
