So you spend one mana to cast the Egg, then
spend two mana to get two mana and a card?
Remember, you spent a card when you first cast
the Egg. So really you're one mana down overall,
just to filter your mana into green and white
and dig one card deeper. Digging through your
deck is important, and I could see this used in
a green/white combo deck that needs to find
combo pieces and doesn't want to add blue, but
as a mana filter it's pretty bad. Green has much
better mana smoothing than this, and if you're
using this to get green and white mana, I can
only assume your deck is mostly not green or
white, and you need this for your splash card?
Or perhaps you're playing
other artifact theme and just want this in play
to up your artifact count... or you can recur
1-mana artifacts, and thus use this as a draw
engine? Is it worth mentioning that this has
since its original printing been outclassed by
I can see it in a combo deck, either as a piece
of the combo or as a means of deck-sifting, but
at face value it's pretty bad. The only reason
I'd go on a hunt for this cycle of Eggs is to
read the flavor text on all of them.
Sungrass Egg has the most tournament pedigree of
this week's eggs, as it was once part of an
Extended deck nicknamed "Sunny Side Up." Google
it. I'll wait.
Everyone back yet? There's not much to dislike
about this elegant yet powerful card. It fixes
colors in "normal" decks, and it breaks the
universe in others. It comes along for the ride
with Trinket Mage. It's beautiful and
collectible, and its flavor text makes you
think. It's a true classic of Magic: the
Today's card of the day is Sungrass Egg which
costs one to play, two with the sacrifice to
activate, and returns one Green mana, one White
mana, and a card leaving you down a mana
overall. It does offer some inflexible
color fixing, but this is not a very compelling
card even with the card draw tacked on.
The one set it was featured in keeps it from
being available to many formats which doesn't
matter as it isn't likely to see play in decks
as better options exist.
In Limited using Odyssey this is a source of
mana fixing, if a relatively poor one, when
playing Green/White or even less efficiently
just one of those colors. As such it helps
when opened in a Sealed pool and you are running
those colors or if you happen to draft those
colors and it gets passed your way. Not a
high pick, but much better here than in any
Welcome to Easter week here at Pojo.com. Today’s Card of the
Day is one that gives every mage their favorite
treat, MANA!! Sungrass Egg is a one generic mana
artifact that has pay to generic, tap,
sacrifice: Add one green and one white mana to
your mana pool. And you draw a card. Mana and
card advantage, what an Easter gift!
Not really anything super great unless you need these colors
and you don’t have them handy. The best part is
the card draw part. But, if you really want to
draw a card, there are better ways of doing so.
