One of the topics discussed among players at this Grand Prix was of course the upcoming release of Eternal Masters, the full list of which was published yesterday. We asked a few of the more notable players in attendance at Grand Prix Manchester for their favorite cards in the set …
Patrick Dickmann, Pro Tour Oath of the Gatewatch semifinalist: All of the cards you couldn't get a premium version of other than maybe some promo until now. So Counterspell, Hymn to Tourach, and a lot more.
Christoffer Larsen, three-time Grand Prix Top 8 competitor: Let me take a look at that card list … Ooo, I always loved Second Thoughts in Limited. And Wonder. Common Avarax? This is going to be awesome. Sylvan Might as a common! This set has all the best Limited cards from the ages. The draft format looks great!
Petr Sochůrek, champion of Grand Prix Paris 2016: Brainstorm!
Joel Larsson, champion of Pro Tour Magic Origins: Arcanis the Omnipotent. Because he is omnipotent.
Craig Jones, finalist at Pro Tour Honolulu 2006: I'm quite excited for Gamble and Sneak Attack. Gamble is good for Lands which is the most fun deck in Legacy and Sneak Attack is just the most fun card.
