    Doesn't this only partially hose tron as the other lands still see Urza's Tower on the battlefield and still produce 2? The tower would loze it's type and ability but not it's name, otherwise this enchantment would stop working. So an opponent would still have 5 mana with tron and you would just color fix any spells they have like nature's claim. This just seems bad compared to blood moon.


    The Tron lands work by land sub-type and not name. Urza's Tower has the subtype Urza's Tower which it loses with this land so this will break up Tron entirely.

    How does this work with tron lands?
    Does the tron lands check for the card name or the card type when giving the bonus?
    If I name Urza's Tower with this, does the Mine and Power Plant still give 2 mana?


    It checks for land type. Urza's Tower for example is Land - Urza's Tower so this effectively shuts off all the tron lands if you name any one of them.

    Doesn’t the Dimir one put you +2 cards on yur opponent, give you an evasive threat, and serve as a strong candidate for Gravedigger? Seems good to me.

    Yeah perfectly reasonable. Not constructed playable, but a very solid limited card for sure.

    Didn't see a thread for this. Saw on Reddit with a link back to an image on the Wizards homepage.

    Yes, reprinted at Mythic, but Mythic in a Core Set, for Pete's sake. Prices should plummet for a long time.

    May you clarify why the price should plummet? Reprint at Mythic and Standarte legal make me think the Opposite will happen.


    Unless there is something that comes along to work well with Standard it probably won't see much play there since it lacks valakut. There might come along some powerful lands in the next few sets, but it doesn't seem too likely.

    The set itself also has several other high dollar reprints (Crucible of Worlds was spoiled today) and with a number of high value reprints each one goes down further since it makes the point where opening a box maintains value.

    Lyon T8 had 1 RG Eldrazi (winner) and 4 mono-green Tron. Everyone laughed it off at the time, but now there are 3 KCIs (incl. 1 winner) and 6 mono-green Trons in the T16 of this event.

    It's easy to point the finger at Ancient Stirrings since it's the common card in these decks, but they also have other objectionable things, like lands that tap for 2+ mana (Eldrazi Temple, Urza's Mine) and a literal Mox. Also note how Damping Sphere failed to stop Tron and KCI.


    The next two modern Grand Prix had one copy of tron and one copy of KCI between them. That's probably why people didn't think they were broken.

    Ancient Stirrings is extremely good in a deck built around it. Ad Nauseam is extremely good in a deck built around it. Slippery Bogle is extremely good in a deck built around it. Modern is filled with cards that are okay on their own, but become extremely good in a deck built to make them work. Which is the difference between Stirrings and Preordain/Ponder/Serum Visions. Stirrings is better in the decks it is good in than those cantrips, but Serum Visions is the 3rd most played card in modern (ahead of Thoughtseize even) for a reason.

    Power level. Without Humans, I dont think UWR has enough game against the other power decks to keep it up.


    Right, but what makes Tron not a metagame deck then. It has a better matchup against humans than UWx and it has never done well in the past. That the current meta game is humans, UWx, mardu which are good matchups and little burn/storm which are bad matchups would seem to make it the real metagame deck.

    What makes UWx a meta deck as opposed to KCI, Mardu, or even Tron. Tron in particular seems like a meta deck when the meta is filled with humans and UWx

    I was waiting for that ktk. Wink

    Humans beats KCI (Emmy) 2-1.
    GDS vs Devoted Company is 1-1.
    KCI vs UWR Control - 2-0 for KCI (and with that Sideboard, I'm not surprised)
    G-Tron vs G-Tron - Who cares! lol

    So its

    Humans vs G-Tron
    KCI vs GDS

    Predictions, Humans vs GDS final.

    EDIT: KCI is certainly the sleeper hit here. G-Tron, GDS, Humans, and UWR BECAUSE of Humans, are among the 'good decks' of the format.

    Is KCI that good? Is it Lantern levels of Good? I dont know.

    GDS is not a 'blue deck and blue mages should STFU' but I have it in Paper, maybe I should get it for MTGO and play around with it...

    EDIT x 2: Tron in the final. Lol, people sleep on Tron so hard...


    Well Tron is favored against humans. Many humans players consider it their hardest common matchup so it's not exactly a surprise it won. I also wouldn't consider Tron a deck people are sleeping on. It's a popular known deck that just doesn't put up results very often.

    Let's see how this GP looks. We can go around for hours and hours and we both know that neither of us are going to be convinced.

    SCG tilts the numbers, we both know that.


    Or do GPs tilt the numbers?

    You can change the target to the original spell however when the fork goes to resolve the wild ricochet will have already resolved and left the stack so the fork will fizzle and do nothing.

    On the topic of Green Sun's Zenith, does this card push the consistency of bogles too far? As I understand, one of that deck's biggest problems is its inconsistency in finding a hand with a bogle, lands, and auras. With very little in the way of card draw or card selection, could GSZ be what that deck needs to become a real consistent contender?


    Bogles wouldn't run it. It's a minimum of 2 mana to get a Hexproof creature and if they wanted Hexproof 9-12 they have Silhana Ledgewalker or if they splash into blue Invisible Stalker These already compete with Kor Spiritdancer.

    That's a great reprint. For those who don't know that's $20+ atm.

    Personally I think the existence of Dampening Sphere and the upcoming Infernal Judgement are signs that we are seeing cards designed essentially for modern and won't be seeing much in the way of unbans or, hopefully, bans from here out. There can be exceptions of course, but it looks like they are going to try and use play design to get of and/or prevent quagmires like Eldrazi Winter or Tron.

    I've always preferred Stormbreath to Thundermaw for that one. Pro white punches through those same fliers but leaves it immune to path.
