Rabid Wombat is one of those cards that is a little sillier than we normally like to print, but we understand that people have an attachment to it, and we're perfectly willing to put it into Eighth Edition. Similarly, Crusade was rotated out of the base set, partially due to power level concerns, but with white needing a kick-start, we could see it coming back.

The dust has settled, and it seems you all have other ideas. Nostalgia, please have a seat.

Yavimaya Enchantress and Glorious Anthem beat out their older siblings, and neither contest was particularly close. I'll leave the "whys" and "hows" to other speculative writers around the 'Net; I'm just here with the facts. (And the fact is, an 0/1 for is pretty awful when you think about it.)

Nostalgia saved face by winning both art votes, with Tempest versions of Trained Armodon and Boil getting the nod.
