Quote from D00msdayHadoken's avatar says he doesn't really play much Street Fighter, or the avy animation time is limited. Should be: d, df, f + P
Quote from RoadsarePoisonThe only real problem with this card is that it only has one target and is therefore easier to fizzle.
That said, it's really good.
Quote from Bishie_BoyThe Apocalypse enemy-color painlands were strictly better than the Tempest ones (Tempest's came into play tapped, Apocalypse's don't).
The current 3-color taplands are strictly better than the 2-color ones (which were core set staples for several years).
Also, no, it's NOT "strictly" better. Flagstones could get any Plains card (including shocklands). This cycle can only get BASIC lands.
So if you had 2 Flagstones bite it, you could fetch any combination of WU+WU, WB+WB, WR+WR, WG+WG, WU+WB, WU+WR, WU+WG, WB+WR, WB+WG (all of which actually INCREASE your color mana options). That's a LOT of color combos right there. In fact, it's literally the option of ANY 2 colors of nonwhite mana, plus the option of Wx and WW for each.
If you have 2 of these bite it (say my WB one), you can only fetch W+W, W+B, or B+B. That's 1/3 as many combinations (3 combos vs 9), and each combination is only 1/4 as flexible (whichever combo you chose gives you only that 1 pairing, whereas the Flagstones + shockland gives you Wx, Wy, WW, or xy). The inidivual land is obviously 2x as effective as an individual Flagstones.
So, in effect, while these lands would be awesomely worthy of competitive play, and they do give 2 colors immediately... they don't obsolete Flagstone of Trokair in any way, being only ~1/12 as effect in their search options.
Quote from Bishie_BoySo Flagstones spinoff seems the best so far... it's good enough to justify a 4-of, without being ridiculous because multiples begin to limit your mana flexibility.
Legendary Land - Plains Swamp
When Flag-Scrubland is put into a graveyard from play, you may search your library for a basic Plains or basic Swamp and put it into play tapped.
:symtap:: Add or to your mana pool.
Quote from iRebelDid you stop to think that maybe she (and millions of others) oppose gay marriage because they believe the traditional family unit is good for society? That maybe they oppose it because children are better served in a household with a mother and father?
