Do you like playing creatures? Play enough of
them and it's City of Brass with no drawback.
With all the multicolor creatures out there,
this might facilitate 5-color aggro.
Wednesday - Ancient Ziggurat
This should be an automatic 4-of in any
multicolored deck running primarily creatures,
such as the one that made top 8 in Kyoto this
past weekend. Other than that, not a heck of a
lot of other uses. This card pretty much speaks
for itself; if you're playing a lot of creatures
(and probably less than 10 spells), run it.
Otherwise, don't bother, as it'll be useless too
much of the time, even if you try to combo it
with Reflecting Pool (that's what the Vivid
lands are for).
Limited is all about creatures, but only take
this if you're playing 4+ colors. Otherwise,
it's probably not worth it.
Constructed - 3.5
Casual - 4
Limited - 3.5
for just over 5 years
-Playing MTG for just over 10
This land is potentially very good. For the
casual players deck it is great. However, for
the constructed player, this comes with risks.
I would hate to draw this and need the mana for
something other than a creature. It could
really slow you down. However, in a creature
based deck, this is better than any land I have
seen for a while. In these decks, I would still
be careful and possibly not put in 4. No deck I
know can function with only creatures.
City of Brass has always been one of my favorite
cards, and when I saw Ancient Ziggurat I thought
to myself, "This is as close to reprinting City
of Brass as they've come in a long, long time!"
It even kind of looks like the Eighth Edition
art for City of Brass. As for gameplay, it might
become famous for brain-busting, color-warping,
eye-straining decks with Doran and Rafiq, but
it also helps out less inscrutable decks like
Changeling Zoo and Slivers. There are so many
different decks that want to play lots of
creatures, and equally many uses for this card.
With Reflecting Pools and Vivid lands this will
not see much play until they leave the format.
With a creature heavy deck this can be a
fantastic land. We will see. Great for Shards
It's a land for creature spells only. Eh.
It is a tough pick between this and Rupture
Spire. If you are creature heavy and limited on
the number of noncreature spells than I would
pick this high for mana fixing.
Overall it looks good, but only in specific deck
