Snow-Covered Plains Discussion

PurePwnage on Boros Prison

TeyoSelflessProtector, Thanks for the feedback. Not really, as nothing I cast has double white, except for Norn's Annex and even then I will never cast it for it's 5 cmc. Statistically speaking, 35 percent of my Mana consists of basic Snow-Covered Plains which is more than enough to simply ignore the replacement effects of Blood Moon . The rare exception would be going up against a matchup with Ponza, yeah then I would most likely have a bad day.

Neotrup on Prismatic Geoscope and what counts …

@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.

PalaCannito on White Prison

Land hate is great when going true prison, but it's actually working against me and my general playstyle. Next planned changes:

  1. Remove all fetchland and replace with Snow-Covered Plains (five out, five in)
  2. Remove Strip Mine and Wasteland for an Ancient Den and a Snow-Covered Plains
  3. Remove Armageddon and replace with Akroma's Will
  4. Remove Crucible of Worlds and replace with a Snow-Covered Plains
  5. Remove Archon of Coronation (fun, but too expensive) and replace with a Snow-Covered Plains
  6. Remove Ancient Tomb and replace with Darksteel Citadel

All totaled - netting two lands positive, removing land destruction spells, lowering the curve, and reducing the self-inflicted life loss. Replacing fetches and the removal lands also helps with Land Tax-type effects. Adding the Ancient Den and Darksteel Citadel to keep and bolster the Inventors' Fair without changing much else.

I can not consider any more lands that come into play tapped, i have 3 now which is already brutal

with Field of the Dead I would recommend to reduce the number of duplicate basic lands in your list. A very easy way to do so would be to replace 4x Forest and 4x Plains with 2x Forest, 2x Plains, 2x Snow-Covered Forest, 2x Snow-Covered Plains
