Sorry for the crappy review today, but I don't like any of the filter lands. They don't do anything on their own. They don't have you advance your mana. More often than not, they amount to more trouble than they are worth.

You know, I really liked the "filter lands" when I first saw them. I quickly realized that they weren't terribly useful. But I do like them. Of course, we eventually got the signets from Ravnica block, which are the same thing in artifact form. The problem with the filter lands is one that goes back to the days before "type 2" existed and a little problem we used to call "Maze of Ith Mulligan". Lands that don't tap for mana (or don't tap for mana without help from another land) need to do something very very special to be worth playing. On the plus side, these lands make a very cheat multicolor land if you need some more for a Prismatic deck or something.

When I first saw the Signets from Ravnica, I thought they looked familiar. I'm assuming that this review is meant to apply to all the lands in the cycle then. Which is good, because I'd give them all the same review-- good mana fixers, but I wouldn't want four of them. They don't produce any mana on their own, so they can't really count as lands when you count lands vs. spells. They'll never live up to the good duals, but then what ever will?

Constructed-- 3
Casual-- 4
Limited-- 3.2

A lot like the Rav block signets, only in land form. It's advantage is that it is a land, and can't be countered, and artifact destruction doesn't affect it. Its disadvantage is that, unlike a signet, it is not accelleration.

A decent mana smoother for the block, but today's signets are preferred.

Constructed - 3
Casual - 2.5
Limited 3.5
