    Still hoping for Counterspell.

    If not that, I'm looking for an unconditional BB: exile target creature at instant speed. Maybe with Gain 2 life stapled to it.

    Uncommon Manland. Interesting...

    I think Planebound Accomplice needs a flicker effect to make him really shine. Pay a R, slam that minus button, flicker the walker for sustained value. Too bad Astral Drift can't hit walkers... Unless you turn them into DRAGONS!!

    This is too silly.

    I think there's an old Daily MtG article about how designing a cycle of cards typically starts really well then falls off with the last couple; I think it gave some examples. I can't think of a name for the article and all I get when googling is articles about the keyword cycling.

    Anyway, with White breaking the idea of a cycle of safety valves, my money is on Red just being some version of Pyrokinesis. It's about as Red as Red can be, but what it's allowed to target is anyone's guess.

    This seems like a huge booster to infect...

    Their T3 wins just got much more consistent and require many fewer cards.

    I think I would rather it gained life, lol. This is a strange card. At least it's not legendary.

    Can anyone think of a reason why this is a safety valve? What degenerate plays is this looking to counter? I'm sort of at a loss. This isn't stopping "degenerate" board wipes, it doesn't stop decks that create a super board state early. I don't get it.

    I suppose I'm glad White didn't just get a piece of super removal like it always seems to though. Leaves the door open for Black to get a good unconditional Exile at 2cmc, which I think the color desperately needs.

    Collected Conjuring might be worth it with 4 Ancestral Vision in your deck if Legacy Shardless Agent is any indication, but will a deck that can support UR sorcery Collected Company for sorceries be too bad for Modern?
    Collected Company decks have known that 28 creatures that can be hit is the sweet spot for Collected Company to be worth it. I can't think of too many sorceries that I want to hit randomly off the top of my deck with no context. Company was also an instant and turning over the right creatures can suddenly win the game.

    This is just a very unfortunate card. It could have been great, but the cmc restriction and not hitting instants as well really hurts this- even if it stayed a sorcery itself.

    You know that BGx can use one of these as well, right? It's a tool that you can use.

    I think they're a great deck building option. I can think of a few places where I absolutely want these and others where I know that the life loss will be fatal. BGx can benefit from their opponent paying life for a few turns, BGx can benefit from being able to draw their own cards with this land.

    These lands have real costs to use. That's a wonderful thing for the format... Choices, options, costs. Not just "I get everything and it costs me nothing".

    I think it only hits sorceries because hitting a duplicate spell might be too strong


    Oh wow, I think you're right. At first I thought you meant a duplicate (noun) spell, like just another Collective Conjuring, rather than a duplicate (verb) spell, like Twincast. Of course, that means your original Collective Conjuring only gets one "real" hit, but if you can keep chaining, that is pretty degenerate.
    I don't think this would work because Conjuring has to resolve in its entierty before you can cast the spells it hits, which means that Conjuring isn't on the stack to be duplicated.

    Collected Company was only creatures after all.
    Ya, but creatures are good. Sorceries are generally very questionable and frequently lumped in with instants.

    This guy is cool. Just live it up. Probably won't go in Whir Prison anyway.

    So... no Snow duals? FINE!

    These are cool though, it'll be interesting to see how other color combinations start fitting these into their lists.


    If you meant enemy colored snow lands that etB tapped, the ally ones were uncommon in Coldsnap, so could be an uncommon cycle here.

    If you were talking about Snow-Taiga duals, those are close enough to violating the reserved list that they won't happen, based on WotC's stance on other cards.
    ... No, they could be any kind of land with two types of mana produced that can enter untapped. Many people are using the term dual to describe these fictional lands because there isn't a real name for them. They could be snow versions of Check lands, Shock lands, Fast lands, etc., or most likely some other interesting version that makes them unique and Snow. Why the jump immediately to alpha duals?

    I think there is a typo. They all say "Pay 1 life" instead of "Pay $10".
