It's a replacement effect for "unused mana".

Unused colored mana becomes colorless and stays. Unused colorless mana also becomes colorless and stays.

Got it now. I guess I missed that lol. Just seemed dumb to turn colored mana to colorless and then watch it empty.

New city of brass. Seems excessive now but once shock lands go it may be necessary.

It is slightly better then brass since brass triggered any time it was tapped so if an opponent tapped it you would lose one life

I've won games at 1 life with cob in play and playing a burn spell. It's not better. Just different.

IDK perhaps it is better. I just don't recall losing any games due to my opponent tapping my COB. Then again my example of winning is pretty narrow.

Now my knowledge of anything Standard is less than low so...

With Kruphix and Dictate of Karametra coming in, is there any room for a psuedo heartbeat combo coming back?

Aurelia's Fury, Clan Defiance and Rakdos's Return are the only X damage spells I know of. UGWrb was basically the colors of most heartbeat decks so some counters, removal and sweepers, drop the god and tap out EO your opponents turn. Float mana etc...

the new 5 color land smooths it out for the splash of your preferred kill card.

There's no Early Harvest but Kruphix ability replaces that.

Since the god says instead and not doesn't empty, that does mean that if he leaves play, the colorless mana you have already floated before he leaves, is still there, correct? damn that's a lot of commas.

Volcanic Geyser and Cinder Elemental can also hit players.

The mana is still there until the next time mana would normally empty from your mana pool, and then it is lost forever.

4 down, 1 to go

Athreos, God of Passage
1WB
Legendary Enchantment Creature - God
Indestructible
As long as your devotion to white and black is less
than seven. Athreos isn't a creature.
Whenever another creature you own dies, return
it to your hand unless target opponent pays 3 life.
5/4

I'm almost considering replacing Erebos and running it and Blood Baron in MBD


edit - actually, I'd also run 2ish of the new city of brass lands so that nightveil would be able to cast anything I peel with it

Exactly what I was thinking. Already have a Junk deck built, I just need to figure out what to take out for Athreos.

Edit:
Pharika, God of Affliction
1BG
Legendary Enchantment Creature - God
Indestructible
As long as your devotion to black and green is
less than seven, Pharika isn't a creature.
BG: Exile target creature card from a graveyard.
Its owner puts a 1/1 black and green snake
enchantment creature token with deathtouch onto
the battlefield.
5/5

I'm not a huge fan of the cards so far, but the trailer is pretty sweet.

I guess it would be too much if all the G-ds were amazingly playable.

Only if you have 2 Masters on the board. They draw on your upkeep, not theirs.

No but there is with Notion Thief and Master of the Feast. It's also pretty good with Master of Cruelties.

Do you think that Mana Confluence will go above $20? I bought a playset on eBay while they were $60 for 4, because I figure they're extremely playable in multiple decks and there's no way they'll go below $15 apiece anytime soon.
