    Thank you Wizards. It was about time you print a constructed playable equipment ! When was the last one ? Runechanter's Pike in Standard ?


    ...three months ago?

    It cannot; Mana abilities do not go on the stack.

    From what it looks like, it's just Wizards doing their own repacks of bulk they had laying around taking up space.


    Not even true. Each of the cards has the planeswalker symbol stamped on the bottom left corner. These are FRESHLY PRINTED (which is why they stated there would be no reserved list in the packs).

    Not sure if this makes it better or worse.

    • 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.

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

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

    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.
