Odds of Angelic Destiny reprint in M13

With all the Angel shenanigans in AVR, this seems very likely. I'm already kicking myself for selling my playset.
Typically core sets are previews, not encores.  So I find it very unlikely.
What about the Titan cycle? That was a whole cycle of mythics printed 2 years in a row.
The Titans saw competitive play, hence why they stayed an extra year. There's a 99% chance they're gone in M13.

Looks like 100% from where I'm sitting.

I'd say there's a 100% chance that the entire cycle won't be reprinted, but I'd give it a 1% that maybe one or two survive for one more year.
IIRC among M12 non-planeswalker mythics, the ones that saw competitive play were the titans and (to a much lesser extent), destiny. My argument is that along with the angelic theme in AVR makes for a non-zero chance of reprint.

Not how Core Sets work. Core Sets preview ideas and themes from the next block.
So M13 will preview RTR. Okay, I'm actually happy, as it looks like my decision to sell my Scars block and M12 cards before going to grad school without waiting out the metagame seems fine.
M12 also had an Enchantments Matter theme, which is probably a reason the set contained one of very few mythic enchantments (and only mythic aura).  That won't be the case this year.
I dunno, we have a couple destiny lites in AVR, so maybe not.
Maybe Armored Ascension instead. 
I'd say no, because they've been trying to find a core set to stick Rancor into, and they didn't want to do it in M12 because of how miserable a year of that and Infect would be, 3 months is much more tolerable.

Also, it works ever so slightly differently than Angelic Destiny and that's really confusing when they're both major players in the same environment.
what do you guys think about Adaptive Automaton being reprinted?
False, black bear.
I would hate to see only a few titans make it in a set.  Most likely it would be Sun Titan and Primeval Titan, but I would miss Grave Titan.

Angelic Destiny would be an awesome reprint, even if only to keep it around with AVR that much longer.  It combos nicely with a lot of the "angels matter" cards.
Original Ravi had an Enchantments Matters subtheme. There's a chance destiny will be back for a second year (like Lightning Bolt was, and we suspect will be for the titans).
