Beeble Scale

From MTG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Beeble Scale is a ranking by Mark Rosewater of the likelihood that a given creature type will be reprinted in a future Standard-legal set. The types are ranked from 1 (very likely) to 10 (very unlikely). It is based off the Storm Scale but applies to creature types instead of mechanics.

Descriptive rankings[edit | edit source]

As described in Storm Scale the following rankings apply:

  • Level 1: Will definitely see again, most likely in the next set
  • Level 2: Will definitely see again, but not necessarily right away
  • Level 3: Will most likely do again, probably many times
  • Level 4: Will most likely do again, but they have issues that make them less of a guarantee
  • Level 5: We need to find the right place to bring it back, but I'm optimistic
  • Level 6: We need to find the right place to bring it back, but I'm a little less optimistic
  • Level 7: It's unlikely to return, but possible if the right environment comes along
  • Level 8: It's unlikely to return, but possible if the stars align
  • Level 9: I never say never, but this would require a minor miracle
  • Level 10: I never say never, but this would require a major miracle
