MTG Eternal Masters Review: Black
Eternal Masters has finally been fully revealed, and despite some grievances over the set being made with Limited in mind, the set does not disappoint. Now that we know what to expect, I’m ready to begin breaking down the set by each color and pooling a collection of thoughts and musings regarding what each color has to offer. In each section I’ll be going over the Rares and Mythics offered to that color, and concluding with some of the Commons and Uncommons in the set that have me excited.
Welcome again to my Eternal Masters set review. Kelzam here, and I’m going through all the Rares and Mythics in each color, explaining their significance and other details about each of these reprints. Today we’re taking a look at Black, which brings back several much needed reprints. I’m very excited about some of the cards offered here, so let’s get to it.
Braids, Cabal Minion
Visara the Dreadful
Other Printings of Note
While Braids isn’t played in Vintage or Legacy and is even banned in Commander, she’s a popular Cube staple and amazingly fun to build around for the most casual of player. Visara the Dreadful is a great Commander card who also finds her way into Cubes. Everything else on the list is a staple somewhere in an Eternal Magic format. Entomb, Ichorid, Sink Hole and Toxic Deluge are all Rares that will come close to paying for the pack you opened it with before even seeing what your guaranteed foil-per-pack is or the Uncommons – and they’re also Legacy staples. As we finish our look at Black, in a lot of ways it came out ahead of Blue when you consider that most of Blue’s value is in it’s two Mythic rare, whereas the value in Black is spread all over.
