Yeah, this card is just phenomenal. I think it is easily the best card spoiled so far and I intend to build around it with Knight of the Reliquary, DRS, Abrupt Decay and possibly Leovold to keep the green count high. I also think you could run like 1 Sylvan Library and some Tireless Tracker to say nothing of Green Sun's Zenith. OMG, the possibilities for this card are exciting. What utility!

I'm going to abuse the crap out of this card in Bant Humans with Knight and Tireless Tracker and Lavinia. 🙂

As per my previous post, I have a Knight of the Reliquary list that should abuse this card reasonably well cause I'm able to run 1 copy and tutor it up on my opponent's eot and then pump it to 2 counters right away by simply having 2 mana up. On the following turn I can pop it for 2 to wreck a shop player's board in an unrevokerable fashion. Here's the list I've been working on lately that might abuse this:

4 Cavern of Souls
4 Windswept Heath
1 Misty Rainforest
2 Savannah
2 Tropical Island
1 Tundra
1 Forest
1 Plains

4 Wasteland
1 Maze of Ith
1 The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale
1 Gaea’s Cradle

Artifacts (8):
1 Black Lotus
1 Lotus Petal
2 Mox Diamond
1 Mox Emerald
1 Mox Sapphire
1 Mox Pearl
1 Chalice of the Void

Creatures (20):

2 Qasali Pridemage
3 Thalia, Guaridan of Thraben

3 Tireless Tracker
4 Knight of the Reliquary
1 Odric, Master Tactician

I plan to abuse the living crap out of this with my Knight of the Reliquary/Lavinia builds. Oh man. . .

How much early-Wastelanding is this guy going to stop, though, at the WW price point?

That is a good point. The only reason I mentioned 5-C Humans as a possible application is because that deck doesn't get to run a fetchland manabase and thus suffers from a highly wasteable manabase.

I think this guy is a fantastic role-player, actually. I think he'll find a home in an aggressive 5-C Human deck because that deck HIGHLY values its rainbow lands and cannot really afford to have them wasted early. This guy will prevent that vs. decks like Eldrazi and shops. I see very little issue with running 1x Maindeck and would likely try 1 more in the sb.

@wagner I think this is a significant upgrade from bargain.

  1. It can be tinkered
  2. The spells are free so you can actually generate a black lotus AND a demonic tutor from a single Dark Petition. That is the key part that I think folks are missing.
  3. This card is exceedingly good with topdeck tutors and cards like Ponder, Sensei's Top, Fetches, and Brainstorm.

I think folks are grossly underestimating how much better this card is than Bargain on so many levels.

@vaughnbros

How does this cycle itself again?

How are you turning counters back on? Are you bouncing this? Cause if that is what you're thinking, you can't.
