I'd say no more than half the roster would be the same....and most of those would need new cards... this is a good example of why online is a good vechicle for cards.. no way a 10 card release would do it.
My guess is that Nicodemus is one of the anonymous investors in the Syndicate Corporation.
Unless General Rankor managed to avoid his whole fleeing his base, hiding his WMDs, being captured after being found in a hole in a ground, and execution by hanging somehow (if the Judas Syndicate had been around longer, I'm sure he would have had a statue erected that the Pantheon of the White would have taken down too)...
With no other dead bodies accounted for (except maybe Gheist), most of the villains can make a return at some point in the future.
And it sure will be interesting to watch Avarice feud with Northstar as former stablemates... the storyline writes itself.

Let's not forget that Avarice is from a wealthy family, so perhaps the family Rose has purchased the Syndicate Corporation. I'm sure with Avarice doing that, he'd have the power to bring back Shock Syndicate and that'd be the deadliest villan team in aCe history.
