    As for the Reserve List / Sliver Queen debate... WotC doesn't profit off of the secondary market (at least directly) but it knows what the value of cards on the secondary market are. Sliver Queen is a $20-30 card - not really for any good material reason - and breaking the Reserve List to reprint that runs the risk of WotC proving the common wisdom wrong and actually hurting the value of that old card. Negator is 5 bucks. Nobody's investment is in danger there. If they break the RL for Negator and it makes a splash / raises Negator's secondary market value, it will be a great catalyst for them to print more RL cards. It's a MUCH better card to test the waters of RL reprints than Sliver Queen.

    Isn't it a white collar crime for WoTC to influence in any way the secondary market prices of its products? Which is why representatives of WoTC have always been careful in discussing things related to the secondary market.

    On the topic at hand, I'm hoping Phyrexian Tower gets one of the rare spots.

    Hence part of the thread title name: wishlist.

    Black:
    Mutilate
    Extirpate

    Green:
    Tarmogoyf
    Wild Mongrel

    Blue:
    Counterspell

    Artifacts:

    The Tempest Slivers. Or brand new slivers covering the basic landwalk and "protection from.." abilities.
    I really do love how the M10 design team introduced brand new cards into the core set, that's something they should continue doing.

    While it's somewhat irritating the first thread was deleted, again, I'm pleased overall about these latest spoils. These newest admissions actually makes my overall interest in World Wake go up.

    Thrulls and Thallids hold complete and utter sway over Sarpadia. Elsewhere in Dominaria, where ever Sliver hives have been allowed to grow and multiply unchecked and without boundries, the Slivers have absolutely overwhelmed their habitats.

    So, a three player set of Thulls & Thallids versus Slivers (that weren't printed in the Premium Deck Series).
