Now that all the Magic: The Gathering cards have been revealed for Double Masters, fans get to see all the rarity shifts in the upcoming compilation set. Rarity shift means that a reprint has a different rarity from the last time it was printed in a booster release. There are many cards that have downshifted to common rarity so that means more cards are becoming legal in Pauper, a format where only common cards are allowed.

 

Redditor TechnomagusPrime has shared a list of rarity shifts in Double Masters, and also notes the cards that are new to the Pauper format. The last section "First in Foil" is for cards that are available in foil for the the first time and nonfoil for the first time.
