koylucumert on reflecting pool and thriving lands

1 day ago

so, I know that if you have 2 Reflecting Pool s and no other lands, they both can produce any color mana since they both see each other as "could" produce a mana of any color. how about thriving lands? lets say as an example Thriving Isle. lets say I have a thriving isle with the named color green, and a reflecting pool, and no other lands. can my reflecting pool produce mana of any color, since the isle "could" produce any color of mana if I named that color?

rwn1971 I’ll probably swap Alchemist’s Refuge for Reflecting Pool, which just got reprinted in Baldur’s Gate.

I think you and I started MTG around the same time. Don't see Ensnaring Bridge + Null Brooch on this site often enough.

Tarnished Citadel? Over Reflecting Pool or Meteor Crater?

Breathstealer's Crypt clever! Why is this not in your Oloro list? Think I'm going to add it into my version.

So the first time I read "Gray Slaad" I read it as "Gray Salad", and that is the name that I will forever call it.

I am a little sad that we didn't get anymore major reprints today (though Deadly Dispute is nice as it is surprisingly expensive). I can't complain too much though since the Battle Bond lands and Reflecting Pool are amazing reprints.

"Cut a deal" feels very reminiscent of Syphon Mind, just white aligned. Seems like a good card draw spell for white in more casual settings.

Run Away Together was arguably the best removal spell in Commander Legends limited so it's nice to see it again here.

I am surprised that "Tavern Brawler" is at common. It seems much more powerful than most of the higher rarity Backgrounds. Same with "Candlekeep Sage".

Now that the main set is spoiled, my opinion is that the set looks fun for limited, yet powered down enough to protect the larger EDH environment. I am a fan.

Hey again Profet93! To answer your questions:

  1. I've not yet wiffed on Reflecting Pool, though I can see how that could be an issue at some point. Thankfully, the high prevalence of fetchlands at my disposal allows me to very consistently get the colors I need rather easily.

  2. Urza's Saga is purely here to get Sol Ring to get a fast Xenagos into play on turn 3. Shadowspear is a nice worst case, but I've only had to grab it a handful of times.

  3. Wheel of Fortune (and by extension, Wheel of Misfortune), are extremely good. I usually save it for when I'm low on gas or have a TON of mana to abuse. I'll try and avoid casting it if someone has a portion of mana untapped as well, but... I don't mind playing risky at times. The circumstances vary, but if you can proxy it or have access to it, I recommend giving it a spin.

As for your suggestions, I am still running Rancor at the moment. It has hilariously gotten me a win or two with a Birds of Paradise and an extra combat spell. As for the others, I'll keep a few in mind. I've been thinking about Heroic Intervention, as well as Tibalt's Trickery, but for now, I am satisfied with my current spells.

Always appreciate your feedback. Thanks again.

The majority of users here have advised that I not use Reflecting Pool in a two-colored deck, so I shall not do so; thank you, everyone.

As a side note, I do hope that WotC finished the "battle lands" cycle (Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade, etc.) soon, as I am building two enemy-colored EDH decks that would greatly appreciate such lands.

as already mentioned Reflecting Pool is a dead card in opening hand which is why it doesn't see major play
for two color decks i recommend
(10) Fetch/Dual Lands "All that come into play untapped"
(10) Basic Lands Of the 1st Color
(10) Basic Lands Of The 2nd Color
(2)/(3) Colorless utility lands

over all this template makes 1/3rd of the deck lands. (consistent land drops and low mulligan rates)
20 cards that provide each color (consistent color access)
The heavy lean on basic lands may not be appealing to most. but its budget access to fast lands and provides resistance to "non basic land" shenanigans ie Field of Ruin, Blood Moon

p.s. i have changed the tide of multiple games with From the Ashes because of this template

In both cedh and casual I think it is meh. In casual most lands will be basics and there are better options in competitive since price isn't a barrier. If you have it use it if you want, but I've top decked Reflecting Pool more than once when I needed my other color so it can feel bad if you don't have your mana fixed already.
