Reflecting Pool

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 get.

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.

Reflecting Pool


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.
