Tolarian: Is it worth it to buy Masters 25 for Magic The Gathering?

Masters 25 is the latest Masters set, coinciding with Magic’s 25th Anniversary, it seeks to contain cards from across Magic’s 25 year history, including cards from every set, with an emphasis on nostalgia as well as the usual Masters aims of providing needed reprints, all while maintaining an enjoyable draft environment. 

But like all Masters sets, it still carries with it the higher than usual MSRP of 9.99, and with a higher price come higher customer expectations. Masters 25 boasts big, but does the end product swing in for a critical hit, or fizzle out when opened? Let’s take a look.

Masters sets have always been designed with two primary goals: a great draft experience, and providing needed reprints for formats like Modern, and to a lesser extend Legacy and Commander. These goals however have often been competing with one another, with the requirements of a balanced draft environment often being the reason that unneeded reprints have made up the bulk of the cards in these sets. 

With Masters 25, the added goal of a nostalgia set puts even more strain on this product, and this review with examine each of these elements to see how well they have been accomplished.

Brewer's Minute: Hidden Treasures, Morningtide

Hey, everyone! It's time for another Brewer's Minute! This week marks the return of our sometimes sub-series Hidden Treasures! Last time, we talked about some of the sleepers of Lorwyn, which means this time, we're moving forward to the tribal-heavy Morningtide. 

What cards from Morningtide deserve a bit more credit than they get? That's our topic for today! Like usual, I don't have any deck lists for the cards we'll be talking about today, so if you have some ideas for decks or synergies that could make our Hidden Treasures of Morningtide work, make sure to let me know in the comments. Perhaps with our powers combined, we can come up with some fun and maybe even competitive lists featuring the cards from today's list!
