The sequel to the original Jumpstart set allows Magic: The Gathering players to build decks straight out of the packs, putting two themes together to make a 40-card deck. It is a simple, easy way to play the game for new and old players alike.
Jumpstart utilizes cards from all throughout Magic: The Gathering's history, as well as new ones. This allows Jumpstart to reprint many popular cards that have increased in price over the years. Some of these cards are seeing their first reprint, while others are welcome due to how expensive they've become.
10/10 Stitcher's Supplier
Though Sticher's Supplier was only an uncommon in its original Core Set 2019 printing (as well as its appearance in The List), it was seeing a steady rise in price. Sitting at around $5, the reprint is very much appreciated.
Stitcher's Supplier is a staple in self-mill decks, allowing you to get up to six cards into the graveyard. For just one mana, Stitcher's Supplier is great for what it does, seeing play across multiple formats for how easy it is to cast and how well it sets up your graveyard.
9/10 Tree Of Perdition
Tree Of Perdition has not seen a printing since 2016's Eldritch Moon set, and had gained a moderately high price tag of $10 a copy. Though there is not much use for it in a Constructed format, it is very popular in the Commander format where you can reduce an opponent's life from 40 to just 13.
It has a low casting cost too, and if you have ways to untap it multiple times a turn, then it becomes very easy to take multiple players — if not all — out of a game.
8/10 Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker
Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker has seen plenty of printings, and despite this, the card still floats around the $10-$15 range. The ability to instantly copy a nonlegendary creature is fantastic and is a very common way to win games.
Kiki-Jikki, Mirror Breaker can easily go infinite with multiple cards, making it a Commander all-star. Though its casting cost is high, the fact that it wins the game makes it worth spending the mana to do so. If you pull the right combination of themes in your Jumpstart boosters, you can even pull off an infinite in Jumpstart as well.
7/10 Lyra Dawnbringer
Lyra Dawnbringer is a fantastic card for Angel decks, but has not been printed since the 2018 Dominaria set. Angels have gotten even stronger since then, thanks to sets like Streets Of New Capenna, making Lyra Dawnbringer more valuable.
As such, its price has tended to be on the higher side, usually hovering around the $15 range. Angels are already good at gaining life, and Lyra Dawnbringer lets them gain even more, making it a must-run in Angel decks. It has a relatively easy-to-meet casting cost as well, allowing Lyra Dawnbringer to start building value right away.
6/10 Goldspan Dragon
Goldspan Dragon is a fantastic card, capable of building up ramp with Treasure tokens and allowing them to tap for double mana instead of just one. It's played a big part in both Storm and aggro decks, thanks to its abilities across multiple formats.
Due to Goldspan Dragon's strong abilities, the price has been rather high for its lifecycle despite it being a recent card from 2021's Kaldheim set. Usually found around the $15-$20 range, its appearance in Jumpstart is very much appreciated, as it will make obtaining copies of Goldspan Dragon much easier.
5/10 Oversold Cemetery
Oversold Cemetery is one of the oldest cards seeing a reprint. It has only had one printing, that being in the 2002 Onslaught set, leading this solid card to be on the pricier side of things at around $15.
Oversold Cemetery is a fantastic enchantment, allowing you to recycle creatures out from your graveyard. It only costs two mana as well, meaning you can bring it out quickly. Creatures with solid enter-the-battlefield and death effects are the best targets, letting you reuse those effects.
4/10 Walking Ballista
Walking Ballista is a staple game-ender when it comes to decks that can play white. It easily combos with Heliod, Sun-Crowned, allowing for you to win the game by replacing the +1/+1 counter just used for its burn effect.
This combo is so good that Walking Ballista had to be banned in Pioneer. It is also a common way to end games of Commander, where the infinite combo has even more ways to get to. Due to how good Walking Ballista is, the card is often found above $15 at its cheapest.
3/10 Karn Liberated
Karn Liberated is one of the best planeswalker cards in the game currently. Even though it has seen multiple printings since its release in New Phyrexia in 2011, the price of Karn Liberated tends to be around $20 at its cheapest.
Karn Liberated is very valuable due to how powerful it is, to the point of decks being built around it. It's a staple in the Modern format, seeing a hefty amount of play there. The Jumpstart printing offers another way to obtain it, and it's a guarantee in the Urza's deck — a luxury other reprints don't have.
2/10 Seizan, Perverter Of Truth
Seizan, Perverter Of Truth is a fantastic card that, until Jumpstart 2022, had not been printed since Champions Of Kamigawa in 2004. The reprint is welcome, as the card is rather expensive — sitting at almost $35 just for one copy of the card.
Seizan, Perverter Of Truth helps you to draw more cards to get to your combo pieces faster. Although it does help your opponents as well, you can easily force infinite combos that lead to either infinite life loss or infinite mill. The card is easy to cast, and if it's played as your commander in the Commander format, you can wait to cast it until you're ready to win the game.
1/10 Rhystic Study
Though Rhystic Study has seen multiple printings since the original release in the Prophecy set of 2000, it has remained expensive at around $40. Though it does not see play in many formats, it is a superstar in Commander — played in almost every deck that can run blue cards.
The term "will you pay the one?" is seared into many Commander players' heads, and it's because of how often Rhystic Study hits the battlefield. It's a phenomenal card, and a reprint in Jumpstart 2022 will make it more accessible.
