Card of the Day Reviews

Wednesday - City of
I imagined this
card would be a very lame card, playing on
the word "ass" in more than one way. But
this is actually very good. Take Grand
Coliseum, and add half a mana, with no pain.
This is actually a very good card, and can
help you cast cards like Little Girl or many
of the others that require one half mana.
Unhinged, though, this isn't that good
unless you have 2 out. If you do, it's a
Time Pro Tour
City of Ass
The only really Unhinged thing about this card
is the funny name. Once you get past the
coming-into-play-tapped problem, there's really
nothing wrong with this card. However, I don't
like to play lands that come into play tapped,
so I would advise not playing this card.
Reviewing this card on the Unhinged scale, it
gets a 3.5 for its overall coolness.

City of Ass
While mana acceleration seems like it should be
a good thing, more often than not the half a
mana will do nothing but cause you mana burn. In
multiples, however, this card can be some handy
mana acceleration, and it looks funny. I suggest

City of Ass -
There was so much "ass" in this set that I guess
we had to include some this week as well. I find
this card amusing since it is a direct play on
the City of Brass card. The effects are even
similar. However, I'm not sure why it comes into
play tapped. This is unhinged, things should be
stronger and wackier. This is definitely a
strong card in casual play or unhinged limited
Constructed: What's half of 0?
City of Ass --
I don't have any problem with taking half a
point of mana-burn on occasion, especially since
the mana produced by City of Ass doesn't come at
as expensive of a price. Getting two Cities into
play can't be horrible either. I would suggest
running four of these in any Unhinged deck that
plays two or more colors.
In limited, this card should always make the
cut. Why wouldn't you want a little consistency
in a very inconsistent environment?
