MTG Eternal Masters Review: Green
Eternal Masters has come and gone, and despite some grievances over the set being made with Limited in mind, the set does not disappoint. Now that we’ve seen what was to be had, I’ve begun breaking down the set by each color and pooling a collection of thoughts and musings regarding what they have to offer. In each section I’ve been 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.
We’re back for Part 5 and looking at a color that is one of the most guilty of rarity shifting, but one that also offers a few much needed reprints with the rise of a few archetypes in Legacy and Modern. Green is a force to be reckoned with in Eternal formats, and in this set, even in Limited. Let’s check it out!

All in all, given the goal of the set, it’s hard to argue that Wizards didn’t hit the mark with their intentions of garnering interest in Eternal formats and helping players out a bit with adding more Elves into circulation. Had the Limited format not been based on Elves, we may not have seen so many rarity shifts in the set. However, to Wizard’s credit, Elves is one of the most popular archetypes in the history of Magic. One could debate on the reasons behind, but one thing is true: It was hard not to be right by focusing on Elves, despite any bad feelings about necessary rarity changes for the sake of Limited.
