The True Impact of From The Vault Realms
From the vault products always provide an interesting look at historical magic cards from Sun Quan, Lord of Wu to cards such as Mirrari, from the vault gives players and collectors a large amount of playable and powerful cards, but what happens when one card is much more valuable than anything else in the collection? What happens when one card is more powerful and more sought after? Then my friends you have Desert, with the most sought after reprinting of desert I decided to dig in and tell you why this card is the nuts and why you should be hoarding Desert Nomads before the price increases.
Desert taps for a
colorless mana ensuring you have
enough mana to cast your spells and
also has the sub type Desert, it
even has an ability that can kill
some of the most powerful creatures
in Magic. Dark Confidant? Dead.
Snapcaster Mage? Dead. Storm Crow
and Chimney Imp unfortunately they
emerge unscathed, but that’s not a
big knock against this card as any
X/1 meets its unfortunate demise in
this barren land. Desert is good
against weenie decks that utilize
small creatures that attack one at a
time into your Desert. Deserts last
sighting was in Time Spiral and
before that Arabian Nights! In
Arabian Nights Desert faced steep
competition and was easily countered
by Desert Nomads who could walk all
over it and by Camel allowing
creatures that banded with it to
become immune to the overpowered
nature of Deserts. Tournaments in
this era were decided by who drew
there first Camel or Desert Nomads
first thus invalidating Desert and
acting as a more powerful Wasteland
or Strip Mine in this instance.
Desert is currently not selling for
more than $2 for the sweet foil
version and I would jump on
purchasing these for your decks
before they are sold out, I just
spend $290 buying 145 copies, 10 of
those will go into commander decks
and a playset into every deck I know
the remainder I intend to sell for a
From the Vault Realms presents an interesting opportunity for those looking to make a quick buck on the collector set, simply the inclusion of Desert makes the product a must have even with its limited print run other cards such as Maze of Ith are simply bonuses. So in conclusion I have demonstrated why Desert should be in every single Magic deck and by far will change every format it is legal in now that it has been rereleased in a small quantity.

Good to be out of the rain indeed.
