Quote from boombox_smk »Countryside Villa
Land Plains Common
Countryside Villa enters the battlefield tapped unless you control three or more
When Countryside Villa enters the battlefield untapped, you may put a +1/+1 counter
on target creature.
Google translates the flavor text in two ways:
"The female place is the place." -or-
"There is always a place for the British route."
This is supposedly the spoiler for Tencent's MTG page, but not only am I unable to locate the spoiler, it looks as though the website has been updated in many months.
Quote from cyberium_neo »Enter tapped isn't an issue, consider Llanowar Reborn does something similar without chance to untap. Like many other cards in the set, they are aiming to bolster mono-color decks, which I approve.
Enter tapped isn't an issue
Honestly excited for the rest of the cycle.

I’m not so sure. Even in 20 plains dec, you expect to have around 3 lands in your first 9 cards. If one of them is this ... then on one of the first three turns of the game you’re not curving out. You only get to spend 5 mana across the first 3 turns, rather than 6.
It may be a cost worth the benefit. But it’s absolutely a relevant cost even in a mono white deck.
I’m mostly curious what the green one will do because thats the one that’ll be most likely to have its fun with ramp and landfetching. I kinda would’ve liked this ability on the green one, for Incubation Druid and Growth-Chamber Guardian.
