MTG Eternal Masters Review: Blue
This is Part 2 of 7 my review of Eternal Masters, covering Blue. 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 back, Planeswalkers! We’re ready for round two, and here we are with one of the more interesting selections of cards in Eternal Masters – that being those chosen selection for Blue. Two very popular staples in Eternal Magic were selected as the two Mythics for the color. While much of the Rare selection leaves much to be desired, there are a couple of reprints in there that I’m excited to talk about. But, more impressive than the Rares is possibly the Commons and Uncommons in the set, and the potential for some valuable and high demand foils (some of which are being foiled for their first time). With all that said, it’s time to move on to the review at hand.

If you’re one of the types to be concerned about the estimated value of a set, Blue is where it’s at, which isn’t unusual. Outside of lands and occasionally artifacts, Blue has historically been the most expensive color to play and will continue to be given that it is the king of card advantage in the game. It’s an exciting time for collectors of foils or those who want to have that one copy of a spell in their deck in foil but can’t because it’s super expensive. Almost every card in foil I’ve mentioned in this article goes for a significant amount more than it’s non-foil counterparts just for the sake of it being Blue. On top of that, several of these cards either had no such foil version before, or only had one in a booster pack product, meaning the demand is going to be crazy high. Despite being guaranteed one foil card per pack, expect the Blue selection of this set to have the most demand. Ultimately, no matter what you think about this set as a whole, if you like Blue then there’s something for you.
