    Out of curiosity, were they the newer Dragon Shield Mattes? I wonder if something changed in production at some point to make them slightly thicker or if the ones that aren't Mattes are different. The entire reason I moved away from Boulders and the Flip N Tray was due to my decks no longer fitting. Or, maybe just the one card being put on the side was enough (I never tried it).


    Not entirely sure. I will say I just recently started using DSs within the past few months, so they are most likely new.

    • Ultimate Guard Boulders
    • These were actually really nice, especially when paired with the Arkhive. However, they did not fit decks that were double sleeved with Dragon Shields. They fit double sleeved decks with Ultra Pro and might with the Katanas (I have not tried that yet). So, if you use Dragon Shields, this are likely not going to work
    • Ultimate Guard Sidewinder
    • This is really tight when using anything other than Dragon Shields and would not fit with Dragon Shields. They look nice and are durable, but are a little small overall.
    • Ultimate Guard Twin Flip 'N Tray
    • This holds two decks and, again, can't fit decks with Dragon Shields. At least, it can't fit them in the little "trays" the box comes with. What I did was actually remove the trays and just put my decks directly into the slot on either side and they fit great. I then put my commander on top so it offered a sort of display for each commander. But, it could sometimes be a pain to get all the cards out since you need to tip the box over to sort of "dump" them out. Not a bad solution over and they were, again, fairly durable, but not the best option.


    I've been able to fit double-sleeved-with-Dragon-Shields into both of these. Its a bit snug, but do able. My fix has been to put the commander on the side as opposed to lined up with the rest of the deck, but haven't had any real issues even when its all 100 in a row.

    Ultimate Guard Boulders in Ultimate Guard Twin Flip n Tray and/or Arkhive, depending on how many decks I plan on carrying with me.

    It looks like it might be a part of a panorama that is split across more than one card. it does not look like the underworld; it looks like Nyx.

    Same. I had to delay GSZing for Sidar Kondo in my game last weekend because of my own Leonin Arbiter.

    Hushbringer looks super fun. It puts a small damper on Varchild, but the odds of having both out at the same time are small enough that it's worth it.

    I think 1 of 2 things needed to happen for me to be happy about this card:

    a) should NOT have been a mythic
    b) SHOULD have been a Threaten or Control Magic effect like the name implies.

    Don't get me wrong, the card is good, the flavor is just off.

    Can we please update the thread title to have the correct card name?

    Weird. Normally they would allow you to scry before drawing.

    I'm excited to try this in Black Mold in Canadian Highlander.

    Played with Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa in the deck this weekend and it did so much work in tandem with Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor. I kept giving my opponent's tokens that they need to hit each other with, and since the tokens can't block, they would go basically unimpeded. Then they finally decided that Varchild had to go, I got all the tokens, GSZ'd for Sidar, and was able to swing with the tokens with impunity.

    I like these lands. It seems like they should be in pretty much every EDH deck that shares the color.


    Maybe not in 4-5 colour manabases as those are often light on basics (and their bonus isn't good enough IMHO to be worth coming into play tapped), but I'd definitely run these in all mono, two and three color decks if they aren't too expensive.


    Don't forget that fetchable dual lands will also meet the criteria.

    Does this make Fiery Confluence do 8 or 12 damage when you select the second mode three times?


    Each mode is a separate instance, so each mode will get a +2 buff.

    How does the last ability exactly work? Can it be activated when the opponent has less than 5 cards in yard or not?

    It's a cost, so I'm pretty sure the answer is no. Like the untap symbol. You can't pay a sacrifice cost if you have nothing to have sacrifice, etc.

    It's not a cost. If it was, it would be "UB, exile five cards from an opponent's yard: effect".


    You DO however have to have 5 targets. Which means at least 1 of the 5 targets still has to be in the graveyard when the ability goes to resolve, or it will fizzle.
