Before I get into this, I know the format is in its infancy and a hypothetical Pioneer Horizons is years down the line. Since Modern Horizons displayed WotC's willingness to bypass Standard to add cards to a format, I was wondering what cards from Magic's history could/should be reprinted for Pioneer. I could probably rattle off a bunch, but I'll just start with a few.

- Stupor. It seems like a good option for control, not as crazy as Hymn to Tourach, but better than Mind Rot.

- Reckless Charge. Heroic may be able to get there in Pioneer, especially after Theros Beyond Death, and Reckless Charge could go far in that deck.

- Lightning Mauler. This is probably just me being nostalgic for its time in Standard. Also, since the format's cutoff is right after Innistrad block (understandably, in my view), there are some cards that could do well in the format without necessarily defining it.

Anyway, that's all I've got. I probably could've spewed out a few more, but I didn't want to pontificate too much.

I would absolutely love Anger|Judgment. That's my kind of nostalgia. I'd really accept any of the Judgment incarnations:
Wonder|Judgment Glory|Judgment Valor|Judgment Genesis|Judgment Brawn|Judgment Filth|Judgment

Also, Braids, Cabal Minion|Odyssey.

I think that condemn or oust would be good white removal to add to the format while not being as overpowered as path to exile. whenever I look at UW lists the removal looks so awkward but maybe I just haven't played the format a lot

Also hoping for Qasali Pridemage. Nice utility card for killing copters and enchantments.

Those would help, but if you need a blinker. Charming Prince is pioneer legal. I maintain the primer of Azorius Titan control on mtgs, and the prince is one of the best blinkers we have there. It's a 4-of in almost all the recent lists, because it's also a useful toolbox kind of creature.

Now, if only they would reprint flickerwisp and soulherder to be pioneer legal..

after thinking about it a bit ore, I'd like to see the Mirrodin fastlands enter pioneer, I don't think they'd break anything. They'd also round out the cycle

More of the Tribal cards from days on past that could make tribal strategies work in Pioneer particularly Elf, Merfolk, and Slivers.

day of judgment. We need a decent boardwipe, not the one that allows the opponent with large creature to draw a card.

I'd like to see the Zendikar traps make it into Pioneer (mainly two Archive Trap and Ravenous Trap) along with Hedron Crab and Glimpse the Unthinkable so I could effectively move my modern mill deck into pioneer. Outside of those, Zendikar manlands, the praetors (and a lot of Scars Block cards). Lowkey hoping for traps and manlands in Zendikar 3
