With Core Set 2019 marking the return of the Core Set the dorks decided to take a look back at all its previous iterations. Starting with Alpha and moving through all the Nth Editions that happened every other year with their white-bordered insanity, through the Magic 201X that introduced new cards every year, we're hitting them all! All the trends (the removal of trample?), all the big news (RULES CHANGES!), and everything else that made each Core Set stand out as its own entity!
Of course, Core Sets were also the place where game-destroying things first appeared. Every single time the naysayers claimed that Magic would be dead soon, and yet here we are on the 25th anniversary. Feels good man.
