And finally, it's a
blue Friday. This was one of the more discussed
votes, as you could either untap the lands or
draw a card for 4 mana. The untapping of lands
won out, and although I liked the choice at
first, it's soured on me as time has gone by.
Yes, you get the 4 lands back, but how often
does that matter? I have to say, not very often.
And it's worse if you play against another blue
But, the choice has
been made, and we get to untap lands for 4 mana.
Mind you, it's not totally crap, but there is
very little way to abuse the mechanic. So it's
just a counterspell that stops other sorcery
spells, as they'll cast any instants anyway
while the original spell is waiting to be
countered so you can untap the lands.
In limited, it's a
counterspell. Not much more to say.
