URZA^S BLOCK URZA⁵S SAGA Release Date: 10/12/98 Set Size: 350 Cards (110 Rares, 110 Uncommons, 110 Commons, 20 Basic Lands) Expansion Symbol: ◎◎ Expansion Code: USG Languages: Chinese-S, Chinese-T, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish Set overview: If Fallen Empires and Homelands were the far end of the under-powered scale, Urza's Block ended up being the diametric opposite — extremely overpowered! Saga, Legacy, and Destiny are known for harboring in Combo Winter, a time when decks could use combinations of cards to regularly win on turns two or three (typically, a "good'' format doesn't have decks that can kill regularly before turn five or six). Several cards from this set were banned in tournament play. Urza's Saga might have the highest ratio of good cards of any printed Magic set outside of Alpha/Beta/Unlimited. Key cards include Gaea's Cradle, Yawgmoth's Will, and Time Spiral — but there are a ton of good cards in this set! Urza^s Saga Rare
URZA⁵S LEGACY Release Date: 2/15/99 Set Size: 143 Cards (44 Rares, 44 Uncommons, 55 Commons) Expansion Symbol:・軌■ Expansion Code: ULG Languages: Chinese-T, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish Set overview: The first set to feature foil cards. For this set only, there were no Chinese foil cards (instead, Japanese foil cards were put in Chinese packs). After this set, foil cards were produced in whatever language the set was printed in. Key cards include Grim Monolith and Palincliron.
Urza's Legacy, Grim Monolith, Rare, $1,200 foil; $150 non-foil. Foil Cards Urza's Legacy introduced the foil card to booster packs. These cards were metallically-foiled versions of cards that were in the set. They appeared one eveiy few packs (usually taking the place of a Common), with usually one Rare foil appearing per booster box. Foil cards are usually worth twice a non-foil version, if both a foil and non-foil version exist. Highly desired foils have a much higher multiplier. NOTE: Wizards tested out foil Promotional cards using some 6th Edition cards (notably Enlightened Tutor) and the Urza's Saga prerelease card (Lightning Dragon). If you have a foil card with an expansion symbol prior to Urza's Legacy, chances are it s a Promotional card.
