I think it'd be a little biased if I said I agree, but I did that in jest after all. I'm glad to hear that you have a sense of humor! :P --Magic Mage (talk!) 05:04, 5 October 2012 (EDT)

Reprints[edit source]

Functional reprints should not be part of this table, nor should the "upgraded" cards. Functional reprints can stay in the Reprinted cards category, but then should be an indented heading. --GeoMike (talk) 17:43, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
