Anthologies had been a box set, the next compilation ready, through the card game . It had been printed in November 1998 to celebrate the fifth anniversary of secret. It showcased cards from Alpha through Urza's tale. The print run ended up being unidentified. When it was initially imprinted, Anthologies marketed for about $20.00 MSRP, but rates have actually increased since. Because the cards have actually white edges and standard backs, they've been tournament-legal.
Unlike Chronicles, a growth, but like many box sets, eg Battle Royale or Duel Decks: Jace vs. Chandra, the reprinted cards didn't matter as current item, and therefore had been just appropriate in platforms which allowed the initial cards being reprinted to be used, and are not instantly legal in Standard during the time this product had been offered.
Anthologies had two porches, Green/White and Black/Red, and ended up being imprinted with and without expansion signs. The cards had white edges and standard backs.
The Anthologies cards with identical copies in 5th Edition (in other words. Armageddon, Nevinyrral's Disk, etc.) bear a striking similarity to those from fifth Edition. They can be informed apart by studying the copyright range:
5th Edition cards have "© 1997", whereas the Anthologies reprints have "© 1993-1998", which became the brand new standard the copyright laws line because of the release of Exodus.
