Observe:

The Reserved List
Yawgmoth's Will is on this list.

Also observe:

Yawgmoth's Will as a judge promo
First spoiled on M:TG Salvation, it appears to be real by many people's accounts.

Finally:

Yawgmoth's Will on Gatherer
Note how if you click on the link and pop up AutoCard window, you will see that Yawgmoth's Will is only legal in 3 formats - Two Headed Giant (don't know what this format is), Urza's Block (old format, hardly ever if ever played), and Vintage (what we all know and love).

If Yawgmoth's Will is really being reprinted as a judge promo, then WotC has just shown that they are willing to do a promotional reprint of a card from the Reserved List. Not just any card, but a card that is almost exclusively played in our beloved format, Vintage.

Now, I am not advocating one way or another on this thread that WotC either will or should reprint any older power cards in this manner (I have my own personal opinion of course, but that's not for this thread per se). It has just occurred to me recently while thinking about this (as I am sure it has occurred to others who saw this judge promo) that WotC could potentially reprint older cards on the Reserved List, even Power, in this manner.

The reserve list keeps them from printing the cards on it in sets. Judge promos are not off limits, so they're not violating the reserve list policy by printing this. Also, it's not the first time they've printed a card on the reserve list as a judge promo.

I'm sure there's more examples. Taking this as an omen of imminent power reprint is idle speculation. Also

Yeah, Powder Keg got Promo'd, even though it was (technically) on the Reserve list, and that was ages ago.

Don't forget Judge Ed. Balance.
How many of these get printed anyway?

1) Promo's are not reprints.

2) Will is a $5 card. It has no bearing on power.

It seems like every time something comes out like this, there's the immediate thought, somewhere, that power will be reprinted.

Power will not be reprinted.

Ever.

Balance, Regrowth, Sol Ring, and now Yawgwill.  They're doing what they can to help out Vintage pimps withouth being self-contradictory.  And no, they're not dumb enough to do power.

Although I have heard rumors of some insane cards on the list to be judge promo'd...Yawgwill blew me away, but these others leave me picking my jaw up off the floor and dusting it off.

We don't need a reprint for pimping reasons if it's available in Beta.

I still play the one I drafted.


No power won't be reprinted in any sorta way like will. "IF" they were to reprint some power it should be in really limited numbers to keep the price about the same.

I'm curious as to what the definition of "non-premium" is.  Are they saying that the Judge Promos are premium reprents?  They lump these in the same category as oversized or collectors edition, both of which are unplayable due to their physical charactersitcs.  If Judge Promos get the same exception to the no-reprint policy as oversized cards it seems to me like the reserved list is somewhat worthless, since they always have a loophole for reprinting a tournament playable version of any card.  Plus there is no cap on how many copys of a judge reprint they can print (or is there?).

That being said, I still doubt they will ever reprint power.  People like me would riot.  Not because of the decrease in value of our collections, but out of the horror of seeing a mox disgraced by the tacky foiled new cardface. (no, the new card face has not "grown" on me...)

Also, notice how the new Drop of Honey card easily gets around the "functionally Identical" clause by being white instead of green.

I am not talking about unlimited number of reprints. But i think if they reprint power (which i think they won't) the prices would sooner rise than fall if only because the demand will only get bigger. In the end people like to have something real instead of a proxy. At the same time they could make vintage a viable protour option as the cards would be available. Again more demand...

But then again, i have yet to see my first miracle...
