Alara Reborn Predictions Part 2 February 4, 2009

Posted by James in : all, random, fake cards, theory , trackback

Since Alara Reborn is probably going to celebrate five color decks, it is possible that Wizards is already done with Triple Lands (for now). What else can be done to help you get domain? Five color lands with all five basic land types. I thought of two lands that have all five land types:

garden of alara

Garden of Alara is pretty weak since it requires you to sacrifice a land, and it would pretty much only exist to combo off with mechanics like “domain.”

paradise of alara

Paradise of Alara would be a great land that requires you to take twice as much damage than City of Brass, but it would also allow us to get a bonus for “domain.” Wizards of the Coast might not be ready to make this land if a combo with “domain” proves to be too powerful.

Both of these cards use paintings that are in the public domain. Garden of Alara uses “Mount Tamalpais from Napa Slough” by William Marple. The image of Paradise of Alara is from “Twilight Wilderness” by Frederic Edwin Church.

Garden of Alara wants me to play Stifle so I can drop it first turn and stifle the “sac a land” triggered ability.

What I think you want is

“If Garden of Alara would come into play, sacrifice a land instead. If you do, put Garden of Alara into play. If you don’t, put it into its owner’s graveyard.”

What’s wrong with stifling it? Sounds like a good combo, and… what’s MaRo’s favorite word for simplicity?
