Battlebond Conclusions and Additions

All in all a nice little set as far as I am concerned. It was a good size for reviewing and it had a nice number of interesting cards. I suspect Battlebond will be even more well received by the EDH community although they will likely come to resent the cost of the lands in years to come! I think the reprints were really well done in this set. There are a good number of high value cards getting brought back to print which is always nice to see as well as some previously unobtainable foils which will please many. I also like how a lot of the bulk and chaff cards in the set that are mainly for the limited aspects of the format are reprints. It doesn't really help anyone having extra versions, either just very similar cards or actual functional reprints when those cards are not playable in any constructed formats. Just save those card names and allow designers to focus on making worthwhile new cards.
