    By "edge," you mean border, right?

    Anyway, white borders signify that a card is a reprint, rather than brand new to the set -- for example, all the cards in core sets prior to Tenth Edition were white-bordered (except for 9th Edition foils, which were black-bordered). This was done essentially to reward people for having the original version of a card, since black-bordered cards are almost universally considered to be better-looking.

    However, as of Tenth Edition and beyond, core and other reprint sets all use black borders, just like all-new sets. For that matter, core sets are no longer all reprints as of Magic 2010; they are now about half reprints and half new cards.
