Reflecting Pool Discussion

Glad you like it! I can confirm you that the deck is indeed very fun and easy to play.

Playing with three colours can be a big deal in terms of budget, since you have to start investing some money in the manabase. Luckily, there are a few budget solutions in the form of painlands (Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos and Sulfurous Springs) and fastlands (Clifftop Retreat, Isolated Chapel and Dragonskull Summit, which are all relatively cheap. Exotic Orchard is one of my favourite budget lands, since in multiplayer it is basically a second copy of Command Tower. You can consider it a cheap alternative to the more expensive Reflecting Pool and Mana Confluence. As for shocklands and fetchlands, you can definitely start playing without them and get them over time. I wouldn't recommend, however, including too many lands that come into play tapped (like guildgates) because we can't afford to lose tempo with this kind of deck. Until you get the more expensive dual lands, basic lands are the way to go. Throw all the signets in, as well as a Chromatic Lantern (this one here is truly mandatory in three, four and five-colour decks), and your manabase should be fine. The rest of the deck is moderately cheap. While some cards like Bloodline Keeper  Flip and Anointed Procession are must-haves, you can find budget alternatives to a lot of the other cards (just to give you an example, Boros Charm or Rootborn Defenses do a decent impression of the more expensive Teferi's Protection).

Good luck building your deck and thanks again for the feedback!

Some lands I would like to use are

Aether Hub, Ancient Ziggurat, Cascading Cataracts, Crucible of the Spirit Dragon, Haven of the Spirit Dragon, Mirrodin's Core, Unclaimed Territory, and Reflecting Pool

since I looked at the ruling of Reflecting Pool, even If I play Aether Hub or Mirrodin's Core, Reflecting Pool sees the card as one of every color and the ignores "counter" ability

An interesting note on Reflecting Pool is that it doesn't care whether you can pay the costs for your other lands. So even if your Mountain is tapped, Reflecting Pool still taps for . This is important because if you have an Aether Hub then Reflecting Pool will still be able to tap for any color of mana even if you don't have any energy. Reflecting Pool also ignores restrictions on mana your other lands could produce. If you have a Unclaimed Territory then your Reflecting Pool will be able to tap for any color and you can use that mana for noncreature spells.

Without knowing your Dragon deck, my first thought is to avoid Reflecting Pool in favor of dual lands like, depending on budget, Wind-Scarred Crag or Stomping Ground. Also, if you don't have them, check out Dragonlord's Servant and Dragonspeaker Shaman.

For Reflecting Pool, it taps for any color that a land you have on the battlefield could tap for. Some examples:

You have RP, Island, and Thornwood Falls: RP can tap for or .

You have Terramorphic Expanse and two RPs: Because the Expanse doesn't have a mana ability, RP can't tap for mana.

You have Azorius Signet, Mountain, Island, and RP: The Signet isn't a land, so RP can tap for or .

Yes, but also if you have things like Command Tower than it can be any colour.

In the case of you only being a red deck, you could however have Exotic Orchard and if your opponent say has mana, then you're Reflecting Pool can also tap for .

Hi! Got some suggestions!

mana base suggestions:

Treasonous Ogre is good, use all that lifegain to fuel X-Spells!

Definitely try Sunforger!

Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves


Maybe start by cutting:

  • Braid of Fire
  • Extraplanar Lens
  • Galvanoth
  • Abbot of Keral Keep
  • Bonfire of the Damned
  • Subterranean Tremors

Hope some of this helps!
