EDIT: decided to change study approach, and in turn resolves the issue. Straight up dictation really tests your overall listening and writing ability. This ties in very nicely with the other two core decks.
Regardless, thanks for the solution netsplitter. Will probably use this approach for a different deck down the line. Tried to edit earlier but each time the page redirected to the "HostGator" hosting service... maybe site issues? Hope not.

The suggestion from bambi73 will work, however it will not fully reset the rescheduling history data. If you want to fully reset your deck, if you have access to the desktop client and a spreadsheet program, I might make the suggestion to export the deck (deselect or refrain from selecting the option to export schedule) to a text file (not an Anki deck package).
Open this text file using your spreadsheet program (make any alterations if desired) and choose to export or save the file as a Text ".csv". When promoted, opt for the "tabbed delimitation" option, as opposed to separating fields with a ";" or "," (they are sometimes the default option). Text delimitation should be fine left as is (usually the default option is via a comma, I think).
What you can do, if you wish, is to now open (if you've closed) Anki and in the browser, select all the cards for the deck you wish to update, and delete them. Close the browser and opt to import from the main menu. Choose the ".csv" file you have saved and import it into the same deck (this saves creating a new deck) and all the fields should match up (unless you are like myself, who like to make large alterations at the drop of a hat) perfectly and your new cards should now be reviewed as though they were brand new.
Choosing to rescheduling them as bambi73 as succinctly explained will reset the reviews however review history data will remain and the ease modifiers related to each previously reviewed card should remain, meaning that each new review isn't truly a new review for the card.
