Fire-Lit Thicket

I've heard some people talk down about this cycle of dual lands.  For one, it doesn't really make mana without another land to tap.  So it's kinda useless on turn one.  Big deal-- most duals aren't great on turn one because they come into play tapped or whatnot.  And it's not great in decks with three or more colors, especially if you need a color it doesn't produce.  But guess what?  EVERY LAND EVER PRINTED is a disappointing draw if you need a color of mana it doesn't produce.  There's really no reason not to run these lands, except for their price tag.

Constructed- 4.5
Casual- 4
Limited- 4

Fire-Lit Thicket
Multilands are always good, and Shadowmoor's are very versatile even compared to other multilands. I don't think there are any other lands that can give you any permutation of their two-color combination with just two lands. They're especially good with Reflecting Pool, and their only disadvantage is the possibility of losing your other colored source to land destruction. Hold onto these lands - play them early, and play them often.
Constructed: 5/5
Casual: 5/5
Limited: 5/5 (ever cast Flame Javelin in a green-white deck?)

Fire-Lit Thicket:


Constructed: These lands are great for constructed deck to help the mana fixing. Will see it in a lot of green and red decks. Helps with the mana acceleration.


Casual: Not to popular with the kitchen table crowd. They like simple lands that are usually basic or they turn into creatures.


Limited: Great card to fix your mana if you are doing 3 colors. Other than that, it would not be high on my picks. Sealed deck if using those colors or splashing either green or red.


Overall a good card.


Constructed: 4

Casual: 2

Limited: 3
