Rustic Clachan

So, it's basically a Plains with a channel ability, that comes into play tapped unless you're playing Kithkin? I guess Kithkin might want to be able to put +1/+1 counters on their little creatures, but otherwise, why bother?

Constructed- 2
Casual- 3
Limited- 2.5

There are a few Kithkin in green, so I was slightly surprised to see that their land was mono-white in mana production. I expect this card will see play in mono-white Kithkin "just because;" its reinforce ability means that you will always have something to do with it even if you're mana-flooded. In that respect, it's no Mutavault, but then again almost nothing is. A solid card all around.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 2/5

Now compared to yesterday's land, this one has merit. Yes, it comes in tapped, but in a late game, this can equal some good combat tricks. In many white weenie decks, the last thing you want later game is land. This gives you a land with an option. Even in limited, where combat tricks can mean all the difference, this card gives you one.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 3
Limited: 3

It comes into play tapped which is really bad for Kithkins, and the 2 mana for a +1/+1 is just bad. Reinforce is just a really bad Aura. Combining 2 bad things doesn't make it worse, but it's still very bad.

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 1/5
Limited: 1.5/5
