It’s not *strictly* better, but it’s damn close.
The original didn’t need Amulet of Vigor for fun.
Still glad I invested more into Scorched Ruins
Quote from Empathogen »Yeah, cards like this really test the definition of “strictly better”.
This card is better than Lotus Vale in a couple of very significant ways,
but entering tapped keeps it from being strictly better.
I still want several myself, I already used Lotus Vale in a couple of EDH decks,
and this will work better since LV almost always dies to Strip Mine rather than Armageddon.
Quote from Boreez »Can anyone explain why this is not one of the worst cards in this set?
Maybe it's because I'm a Standard player, but I can't think of a single deck that would ever want this. You can't play it on turn 1 or 2. If you play it on turn 3, you forfeit that turn.
If you're a 1- or 2-color deck, you don't need fixing like this. And if you're a many-colored deck, you'd much rather have the two dual-lands you just sacrificed than a land that can only produce one color of mana at a time.
What am I missing here?

Quote from theMarc »PSA to everyone who keeps forgetting about the Reserved List:
You're on a website dedicated to talking about MtG. You're only a few keystrokes away from finding out what cards are on the Reserved List. You're also only a few keystrokes away from finding out why some cards on the Reserved List got foil printings in FtV, as Judge promos, or whatnot, as well as why that won't happen again. Stop doing this.
