the picture of each card. The set is REALLY
different, and will bring a huge change to the way
we play...you have to see the new
This card has some real potential in the new
environment, and only time will tell just how
useful it will be. Though it's not the same
thing as the original, neither does it cause you
to sacrifice it to get 3 mana. It will have
limited, I think by the time you get to 5 mana,
you're probably color set already. Gilded
Lotus will be most useful in decks that have a few
really high costed spells that need that boost to
get them cast, like the Tower of Fortunes, Tower
of Eons, and Tower of Murmers (you can see all
Lotus would definitely ease the pain of activating
them, and dang, wouldn't you love to draw 4 cards,
or gain life, mill a library away, or other high
casting cost goodies each turn? Yeah, you would.
Limited: 4 (situational)
Ah, the "Lotus"
effect. By that I mean put the word "Lotus" in
the name of the card, and give it a Lotus-like
mana producing ability, and watch it become a
chase rare for at least the first couple of
weeks. Right now, you can look on Ebay, and see
it is the most expensive card in the set right
now (at least, last time I checked). Unload them
as soon as you can, though, as this will be used
about as much as Lotus Vale, the last similar
card that got similar hype.
In limited, it's a
mana smoother. If you're not keeping what you
draft, don't bother to draft this any higher
than 7th-8th pick.
Limited: 2 (there
will be a 5 color deck on most tables, and this
is amazing in it. If you are the 5 color deck,
this becomes a 4-4.25.)
Gilded Lotus is
interesting. 5 mana now gets you +3 mana latter.
Still, if you can pump 5 mana into this artifact
how important is the 3 mana boost. Perhaps, the
saving grace is the fact that the mana is of any
needed color but still.
Acceleration is always good but at what price is
it wasted - 2.75
Limited - What a
way to even out colored mana in a long game - 3.10
