Land - Gate (Uncommon)
Gates you control enter the battlefield untapped. T: Add C. T: Add one mana of any color that a Gate you control could produce.
Getting around things is the name of the game with these uncommons. This new Gate gets around Gates entering the battlefield tapped, while our Geode Golem reprint is a reminder of how to get around all the commander tax around your general.
Somehow , i get the impression that the The Wizards Dev Team is trying To Alienate The Elder Player Base .
Can you imagine working for something like an intelligence agency , watching the rise of this thing that commands you to strip the young of their resources and vitality at breakneck speed without reproach , while simultaneously trying to waveguide the 2045 Machine Ascension ?
its about as powerful as anything else in this format. its not going to break games or run away with them. there are tons of existing lands that are just as strong or stronger. it helps out gate builds, which honestly could use some help anyway.
It amuses me greatly comparing the price I paid for three Maze's End (normal, pack foil, pre-release foil) to what they are now. The normal card, English NM, starts at €10 on Cardmarket.eu!! Foils €23! The pre-release is still affordable at about €2.
Maybe I'm naive but I feel like chances are quite good that unless you rip this, or Maze's End early to fetch this it's just going to be a little push. I mean, it's going to happen. It's uncanny how often players seem to play openers with turn 2 man's rocks in them, but this is not breaking Gates.dec with any consistency.
