Set to launch into stores on March 19th, 2021, about two weeks from now, Time Spiral Remastered promises to be a great set. From great reprints to an exciting draft experience, Time Spiral Remasters (aka TSR) offers great value to Magic: the Gathering players.
Time Spiral Remastered Drafts
Originally released in October of 2006, many players have begun playing Magic. Now is there opportunity to enjoy the insane temporal and planar interactions of the original block.
To accomplish this feat, TSR takes the original Time Spiral Block and boils it down to a one set draft experience. You’ll find a carefully curated set of cards from original Time Spiral, Planar Chaos, and Future Sight. Wizards of the Coast worked hard to remove filler, chaff, and others cards that didn’t quite work. The result a smooth, but evocative, draft experience.
TSR brings back scores of powerful cards for a second printing. They range from fan favorites, like Damnation and Tarmogoyf, to ticking time bombs with Suspend.
Suspend let Wizards of the Coast get around their restrictions on reprints, such as Ancestral Recall, with very similar cards, such as Ancestral Vision below. They also allowed them to fine tune effects that were too powerful and banned in later formats, see Blanace and Wheel of Fortune in Legacy. Plus, there’s nothing quite like making your opponent sweat as multiple different Suspended cards count down to one mighty turn.
We’re back to old school with Time Spiral Remastered Slivers. Unlike more recent iterations, these Slivers buff all Slivers in the game. Even if you don’t intend to play Slivers heavily, it would pay to draft a few as they come around. Just when you’re opponent has their Sliver machine running summon a few of your own for powered up mayhem.
Now, if you want to play Slivers in draft or going forward, this is the best opportunity in years to collect playsets of those hard to get staples.
Here are a few among the many we’re getting in the set.
And there’s a whole lot more of these little critters coming for these three colors. While the set contains no pure Black or Blue Slivers, there are gold Slivers arriving with those colors in their casting cost. Splash away.
Time Shifted Cards
The original block was known for the the special cards found in each booster. Whether they were purple symbol reprints, alternate reality color shifted cards, or preprints of cards to be “created” for future sets, they were an iconic part of every pack. Time Spiral Remastered continues the tradition of these special cards.
Now, the time shifted cards are reprints, but they’re not from before Time Spiral. Instead, they all hail from sets that came after the Time Spiral block. To set them apart from other modern cards, the time shifted cards will appear in original MtG borders and call back the purple set symbol. This will be the first time any of them have appeared in an original frame!
Wizards concentrated on cards played in current formats, such as Commander, Modern, and Pioneer, prioritized popular commanders, and worked to make them play well with TSR Limited.
Not only do they look great, but they give you a second chance at some great picks.
