Eternal Masters Predictions

What a week for MTG news it was while I was on vacation!

Eternal Masters, a set designed to increase the supply of hard-to-find or pricey Eternal staples will be released this June. Very few preview cards for this set have thus far been released, with only the counterspell Force of Will at mythic rare, and Wasteland at rare thus far being confirmed. These two cards are basically the backbone of Legacy/Vintage, so their inclusion has people buzzing about this set.

As a hardcore Legacy player, naturally I’m really looking forward to this set!

Back in 2013, I had posted my predictions for the original Modern Masters set. I did fairly well; I had correctly predicted 9/15 mythics, and 19/53 rares correctly; this meant that I was 40% right, which was a good enough success rate that I considered this round of predictions to be a success. When Modern Masters 2015 was spoiled, I did another round of predictions; this time with a much lower success rate – I was only 30% right this time.

With all that in mind, I figured I’d throw my predictions out there for Eternal Masters. Today’s article will be my predictions for what will be in this awesome-sounding set, so let’s go!
