Reserved List

From MTG Salvation Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Reserved List is a list of cards that will never be reprinted in order to preserve their value. The Reserved List was first published on March 4, 1996 [1] [2] and revised in 2002 [3] [4] and again in 2010. [5]


  • Reserved cards will never be printed again in a functionally identical form. A card is considered functionally identical to another card if it has the same card type, subtypes, abilities, mana cost, power, and toughness.
  • The exclusion of any particular card from the reserved list doesn't indicate that there are any plans to reprint that card.
  • The reprint policy applies to both English and non-English cards.
  • All policies described in this document apply only to tournament-legal Magic cards in printed form. Wizards of the Coast has and may continue to print special versions of cards not meant for regular game play, such as oversized cards. The restriction also does not apply on non-redeemable Digital Cards in Magic Online.
  • The original policy only applied to non-premium cards, meaning that Reserved cards can still be reprinted as a premium-exclusive card (and quite a number of cards had been reprinted such way). Starting in 2011, no cards on the reserved list would be printed in either premium or non-premium form.
  • In 2002's revision WoTC decided no cards from the Mercadian Masques set and later sets will be reserved. In consideration of past commitments, however, no cards will be removed from this list.

Note: Feroz's Ban from Homelands was reprinted in 5th Edition although it was (mistakenly) on the Reserved List at the time. And it was removed from 2002's revision.
