Quote from Guesswork
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.
