Plains Discussion

Neotrup on Prismatic Geoscope and what counts …

2 weeks ago

@aznb01777 In the future, if you have any questions that need to be addressed, please submit them as new questions so they can be put into the new questions section for visibility. All the rulings I'll be listing will come from Prismatic Geoscope 's Gatherer page, and the rule from the comprehensive rules as of February 2nd 2021.

As was stated in this thread earlier, there are 5 basic land types as defined by rule 305.6:

305.6. The basic land types are Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, and Forest. If an object uses the words "basic land type," it’s referring to one of these subtypes. An object with the land card type and a basic land type has the intrinsic ability "{T}: Add [mana symbol]," even if the text box doesn't actually contain that text or the object has no text box. For Plains, [mana symbol] is {W}; for Islands, {U}; for Swamps, {B}; for Mountains, {R}; and for Forests, {G}. See rule 107.4a. See also rule 605, "Mana Abilities."

Having multiple basic lands of the same basic land type does not increase the mana produced by Prismatic Geoscope :

11/8/2016 How many lands you control of a particular basic land type is irrelevant to a domain ability, as long as that number is greater than zero. As far as domain is concerned, ten Forests are the same as one Forest.

Even though Snow-Covered Plains and Plains have different names, they share the Plains subtype, so they're not counted separately:

11/8/2016 To determine the number of basic land types among lands you control, look for the Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, and Forest subtypes among the lands you control. Count each subtype that appears one or more times toward the number of basic land types among lands you control. This number can't exceed five.

Note that the ruling specifically calls out that the number can't exceed 5. If snow-covered basics and regular basics were counted separately, it could go up to 10.

The power of the kitty made me upvote before even realizing the deck only has 50 cards. Adding 8 Plains and the two King of the Pride from your maybe board should solve this.

Besides this, the list looks fine. It won't stand a chance against actual competitive modern format decks, but it is a cool tribal deck.

It's not a commander rule, it's a Brawl rule (903.12 covers the rules for Brawl):

903.12e If a player's commander has no colors in its color identity, that player’s deck may contain any number of basic lands of one basic land type of their choice. This is an exception to rule 903.5d.

@Caerwyn 903.13 covers Commander drafts, and does not have any such rule, it's possible this was a house rule for a cube you'd played. Conversely, I've seen cubes house rule that Wastes can be taken in any quantity like other basics, whether a Commander cube or otherwise.

As always, you can ask the people you play with if they're okay with it. If your group is already okay with proxying, just say you're using Plains as a proxy for Wastes and treat them as such.

Expanding upon Caerwyn's point--we're starting to see the ways in which Red can "draw" (impulse draw), and White can ramp (search for a Plains if you have fewer lands than an opponent): we just need for WotC to expand upon these notions so players have enough options to build a deck utilizing them. ALSO, White needs to figure out how to flavorfully draw (Mangara effects??), and Red to flavorfully ramp.

Sehe nicht den Sinn bei Chromatic Sphere & Mana Cylix, die sind nur interessant bei multicolor decks (du gewinnst mit ihnen kein mana, kannst es nur umwandeln).


raus: 2x Plains, 1x Mazemind Tome, 1x Giver of Runes, Chromatic Sphere & Mana Cylix

rein: 2x Angel of Vitality, 4x Sejiri Shelter (Länder und gleichzeitig ersatz für Giver of runes)

Man könnte sich überlegen noch die letzten beiden Giver of Runes mit Lightning Greaves zu ersetzen... bleibt wahrscheinlich länger auf dem Feld als Giver of Runes und kann Lyra Dawnbringer haste geben - direkt 5 Leben und evtl. ein Engel. Und du hast sehr viele 1 cost spells.
