Stonecoil Serpent, X
Artifact Creature
Reach, trample, protection from multicolored
When Stonecoil Serpent enters the battlefield, put X +1/+1 counters on it.
0/0

It is protected against Dack, Teferi and Assassin Trophy.

Is it good enough for Shop ? I don't think so, but it is worse considering.

@fsecco I don't think so. "Opponent" is defined by opposition to the controller of the capacity on the stack, not the controller of permanent.

Mystical Dispute 2U
Instant
This spell costs 2 less to cast if it targets a blue spell.
Counter target spell unless its controller pays 3.

It is less powerful that Red Elemental Blast to fight blue, but it is not completely dead against the rest. It is also mono Blue. It dodges misstep even if it is less important now.

Can this see some play ? in BUG maybe ?

@desolutionist
Crop Rotation was unrestricted in June 2009 and New Phyrexia released in May 2011. But there is no deck with more than 1 crop rotation in the mtgtop8.com base during that period.

Obviously the metagame is completely different now, it is difficult to make prediction from this.

@Boogdish Split cards count for only one.

708.4b The mana cost of a split card is the combined mana costs of its two halves. A split card’s
colors and converted mana cost are determined from its combined mana cost.

It is worth noting this card is also a "key" so the combo "vault-key" can keep is name.
