different, and will bring a huge change to the way
Well, it's a Mana
Flare of sorts. It's hard to say if this
card will find a home in constructed. In limited,
if you're playing very high costed spells, this
could help you out some. Eh.
The latest in the
line of Mana Flare variants, you imprint one of
your land on this to make all lands with that
name have a Fertile Ground on them. This can be
useful for colors that typically can't get rid
of a caertain class of card. For example, red
and black have a hard time getting rid of
enchantments. Use this, though, and take out one
of your lands, and all of a suddden you have
access to either green or white mana to be able
to Naturalize or Demistify it.
This will prove to
be more useful than the Soul Foundry in my
opinion, after all is said and done. If they
Naturalize this, you're only out a land. And
although this works for both players, you can
typically just not cast this if you're playing
the same color, unless you need it.
Mana acceleration is
worthless in limited. I wouldn't play this.
Yeah, it's a flare for one color. That takes an
investment of two cards.
Odds are, a lot of the time you'd be better off
with a couple worn
powerstones or somesuch most of the time, but
this may see some play in the
AAAAARgh! Why did it have to be symmetric!?! If
it weren't for the
symmetry, this card would be the BOMB! But alas,
it's just an expensive
mana flare for any color. Now this doesn't mean
this card is bad, it just
means it isn't as great as I would like it to be.
Its an amazing way to
speed up any deck. The mana cost is the reason why
its not only useable, but
efficient to. Once played.you'll more than likely
have 6 mana to play around
with the following turn. 6 mana turn 4 is quite
nice.but wait.. There it is
again.your opponent will more than likely be able
to use the ablity far
before you will, and against the wrong deck,
that's could be it for you.
So all in all, I have very mixed feelings about
this card. Its very
difficult to speculate how this card will work in
the environment. It will
be an interesting thing to keep an eye on.
In limited..useless I my eyes. theres a good
chance it will just help your
opponent get their "bomb" out much earlier.so
don't grab it.
Constructed - ?
Limited - 1
Now, I think the best
thing about this card is that awsome picture. The
worst part is it helps your opponents if they are
using the same land as you
are. But if they are not, then boo ya. And
plopping this down on turn 3 will
double your mana on turn 4 which will be a huge
help. Of course, this is
most effective if you are using a mono color deck.
If you imprint say....a
Coastal Tower. Then If you tap another one that
you have in play you can get
another W or U, which is a good deal.
Casual Rating: 4.5
Its an artifact
"Mana Flare" for one color//type of land. It
will probably see play somewhere, but its fate
is uncertain now since theres no way to see
the whole set yet.
In limited its
pretty much useless, since it can help your
opponent also. Mostly though, cards like this
just aren't worth playing in limited.
