Spawn of a thousand rules questions: the
Reflecting Pool stands ready to provide any
color of mana, provided you already... have...
access to it. Good in multicolor decks, and
very good with Vivid lands, but it is weakened a
bit by how bad it looks in your opening hand as
your only land.
Friday - Reflecting Pool
This was a good card when it came out in
Tempest, as it could be abused with Gemstone
Mine among other things. Nowadays, replace
'Gemstone Mine' with 'Vivid Lands' and you have
the same idea. This is one of the cards that
lets the multicolored decks go, as with a Vivid
land also in play, it's essentially a free City
of Brass. The only real downside to this card is
if you draw multiples in your opening hand.
That, however, is a small drawback for what you
In limited, it can be useful for color fixing,
but I wouldn't pick it that high. Maybe in Alara
block, but not in Shadowmoor block.
Constructed - 4
Casual - 3
Limited - 2.5
Another card I missed. To be honest I have not
made a new 5-color deck in a couple of years.
The last one is my Beacon deck. Of course it
would help if I have a couple of copies of
Reflecting Pool. But I think I only have one
somewhere over the rainbow. Anyways it is not
played in my part of the woods. So that is my
reason and I am sticking to it.
