Of the 28 sets he listed, the following sets comprised the Top Ten:
- Future Sight
- War of the Spark
- Throne of Eldraine
Among the Top Ten, War of the Spark and Throne of Eldraine are the two most recent sets, and likely still available in retail game stores. He noted that Innistrad was in the top slot because it was his "tightest design", and Ravnica ranked a close second because it "fundamentally changed a lot of how we design sets."
On the other end of the spectrum, the self-admitted worst set designs on his part were:
28. Battle For Zendikar
The most recent poor designs on this list were Ixalan and Battle For Zendikar. The basement slot was reserved for Battle For Zendikar not because it was actually the "worst set", but because he made a "fundamental mistake" in making the set "all about the war with the Eldrazi."
In August, Mark Rosewater gave a State of the Union-style review of Magic set design (see "Head 'Magic' Designer Identifies Highlights and Lessons from Year's Releases").
