Didn't @chubbyrain1 invent this deck when riddlesmith came out?

@vaughnbros said in What could replace the fetches/duals as a default mana base:

Shroud/Indestructible multi-colored lands. Conditional draw. Making things uncounterable. Producing 3 or more, or filtering for double color. These are effects sometimes worth playing over duals. If they pushed those mechanics far enough, they could be playable over the traditional set up.

For what it's worth, any land with Shroud/Hexproof/Indestructable that produced colored mana could potentially be huge. I mean if you had:

Darksteel Island
Land- Island
This land is Indestructible. When this land comes into play take one damage.

People would absolutely run this over at least one basic island just to protect from decks that recur stripmine. I also think this design is far more likely to happen than a dual with the same stuff printed on it. The issue is without the island subtype the card is very likely not good enough if not just actively bad, but if you put the island subtype on it suddenly it is fetchable and fetches remain king.

FWIW If this was also an artifact it would be way too good.

if it was a symmetrical effect that would be cool.

Doomsday is very popular and mystic sanctuary seems good. Is this card worth looking at now?

@serracollector reanimate isn't just for shadow. in addition to the opponent's creatures, you can cycle street wraith and then reanimate it, getting to lose a full 5 life.

7 life if you count the cycle!

The RR casting cost is probably the bigger issue.

There's a general lack of respect for Ankh of Mishra around here. Next thing you know people will be talking trash on Black Vise.

I really like black vise...
