And here it
is, the ultimate land for help with 5 color decks.
Strictly a casual thing, but really, really great
in casual. It allows you to play those WUBRG
spells that are so fun. Here is a list of
some of them:
Legacy Weapon - Remove a permanent from the
game. ANY permanent you can target. Yes,
that includes indestructible stuff.
Last Stand - This would actually work best in
an otherwise mono colored deck so you could
utilize the Last Stand's abilities to the fullest.
Cromat - A 5/5 Badass that has some pretty
Sliver Queen - It seems Crystal Quarry was
made for Sliver Queen. Sends her out on the
board quickly and effortlessly.
Sliver Overlord - See above.
Combos Well With:
Weapon - Apocalypse -$3.74
- Apocalypse -$1.34
- Apocalypse -$2.05
Queen - Stronghold -$30.78
Overlord - Scourge -$5.34
Hey Pojo.com Fans...
I'm going to try something new here. Do you
have a combo idea? Send me the name of the
cards involved, and I will consider posting it on
my CotD spot. Just make sure your email

The ultimate in
rainbow mana producing, you get to filter 5
mana of any color (or even colorless) into
one of each color for things like Sliver
Queen, Coalition Victory, and other 5 color
cards. Not bad if you just need 3 of the
colors, either. The fact that this taps for
colorless mana is gravy for casual.
limited as mana fixing, but not something
you'd want to touch in competitive

This is the card you
want when trying to play your Coalition Victory,
Sliver Queen, or Sliver Overlord. It's easy to use
and activate. And since it's a land, it's easy to
get into play. Unfortunately, it has some VERY
But, even while, I type this, I think it might fit
into a five color sliver deck just to have every
color mana available for casting slivers.

This land is only useful in decks that need access
to ALL FIVE COLORS, or at
least four of the five colors of mana. They COULD
have called this card The
Land of Splash, because hypothetically, this land
could make every virtually
every card ever printed splashable in your deck.
Oh, wait, April Fool's Day
was two weeks ago. Don't get into a quandary over
Quarry, it's strictly
A card designed to get out those fatty 5 color
legends, and potentially to let you splash cards
that are 5 mana with a single colored mana
Basically though, it makes whatever spell you
cast cost 1 more mana
overall- in that you have to tap the quarry in
addition to the five other cards. There are
usually better ways to get multi-colored mana.

Contrary to the
previous days card, I DO fine Crystal Quarry fun.
It’s very limited, but it’s so cute as a mana
fixer, how can you not like it. You can cask
Coalition Victory with this card. You can cast
Sliver Queen with this card. Most importantly, you
can activate your legacy weapon with this card!
What else can you ask for in a land?!

funny little land that tries to be a good land. It
cost you effectively six mana to get one of each
color. When played in conjunction with Legacy
Weapon it can be fun. I personally never used this
card because it just didn’t prove to be effective.
In casual play this card will find more uses than
in any other format.

So Legacy Weapon and
Crystal Quarry walk into a bar…err…right, anyway,
so this saw play with the Weapon occasionally,
letting you run the Weapon in a deck that sported
less than five colors. While this didn’t
necessarily make it “good,” it certainly was fun,
and hey! You got to play Legacy Weapon in
This seems an obvious
(if funny) mana-fixer in big casual games. You
can pair this with the aforementioned Weapon, or
Last Stand, or a giant Sliver of your choice.
Fun! Obviously pointless in Mental Magic.
there’s not going to be much of anything to use
this with in draft. Pick the Mongrel in the pack
and ship this thing to the guy to the left.
first it looks like a good fixer for 5 color
deck’s mana problems. It’s not bad, but first,
it’s easy to mana burn, you can only use it once
per turn, and you can’t specify how many of a
certain color you want (this is a problem when
something costs BBW). However, it’s nice in
casual, because usually you don’t want to pay
the money and life for the pain lands. Gets you
a turn 5 Sliver Queen with no drawbacks. I
honestly can’t think of any other combos for
this, as I’ve spent combo brain for the rest of
this week’s cards.
In limited, if you’re playing a 5 color deck,
you’re going to lose. I guess this could be ok
in a 3 or 4 color deck, but you’re probably
going to burn each time you use this, which will
put you behind in the game pretty quickly.
Actually this card
is really interesting. A non-basic land that
still gives colorless but can filter into one of
each of type of color mana? Strange! You could
use this and maybe the Urzatron to get out fast
sliver queens and sliver overlords in casual.
Cromat too! Get your akward army out and lay
some beats on your friends in casual
