    So if I’m reading this right, for the rest of the game, or until it is destroyed, you are given 3 additional mana on your precombat main phase every other turn and on the turns inbetween you draw a card an additional card? And it only costs four mana?

    • Kumrag

      Basically. There wouldn’t be a reason to uptick past 1 counter unless you really needed the card draw

      • Kumrag

        Actually I’m dumb, it’s not a choice, you get 1 or the other each turn.

  • MTG fan

    What a weird card. This looks fun to play with.

  • Derek Niles

    This probably could have been worded better. So if you remove the flood counter you get the mana and if you add one you get to draw a card, and you have to keep adding and removing every other turn. And if you can get multiple counters on there with something like proliferate, it won’t do anything…..did I get all that right?

    • Tolle

      Incorrect. The card says “remove all counters” it doesn’t matter how many counters are on it. It is awkward but also fairly precise.

    • OMG

      I guess you get mana whenever there is one or more counters (+ is splashes them away) and you get to draw a card any time there is no counter. The real question is, do you draw multiple cards for putting multiple counters while constrictor is out??

      • Derek Niles

        doesn’t look that way

        • OMG

          agree

  • Tolle

    This looks amazing for limited. But I doubt it is playable on constructed.

  • galen150

    so its very much made for the long game, and could work well with the blue god (if you have nothing to use the mana on, just draw an extra card with his ability?) a blue green deck that likes to hold onto lots of cards sounds fun

    • OMG

      It can speed up the game, though. Cast this turn 4, get a card turn 5, get three extra mana turn six and you nearly hardcast Ulamog ;)

    not sure if anyone plays u/g, or u/g/x, or u/g/x/x in edh…. but if there are any u/g, or u/g/x, or u/g/x/x players out there somewhere, they will probably like this card.

    • Ryan Sullivan

      u/g is one of the best color combos. Ezuir, Claw of Progress is incredible. Edric is good, momir vig, Rashmi, Thrasios. They all love this deck, and there are even more tri color commanders that want this. This card is all around amazing in edh.

  • Kahai

    Love it! My elemental tribal Wanderer deck will love the draw and mana!

  • Jeffrey Zom

    So basicly this says:
    the next turn, you wil draw an extra card,
    the following turn you will get 3 mana,
    (And these two lines go on forever untill it’s destroyed)

  • Happy The Cat

    the wording is so bad, why not say remove a counter and add mana, if you didn’t remove a counter instead put a counter on this and draw a card. linear thoughts wizards, linear thoughts.
    anyhow good card, slow bleeding value over your opponent will snowball.

    • Giby86 .

      That’s…not better.

      • Happy The Cat

        at the beginning of your precombat main phase, remove all flood counters from Bounty of the Luxa, and add 1gu to your mana pool. if no counters are removed this way, instead put a Flood counter on Bounty of the Luxa and draw a card.
        instead of effects contradicting themselves multiple times they should be written in logical order, do A, or do B. not do A, or do B, then do C if you did A and not B.

        • CnBCustoms

          I think they went for rules clarity over proper semantics.

          At the beginning of your precombat main phase, remove all flood counters from Bounty of the Luxa and add {C}{G}{U} to you mana pool. If no counters were removed this, instead put a flood counter on Bounty of the Luxa and draw a card.

          You can remove all counters from a permanent without any counters so long as it’s not part of a cost of an ability, as the rules don’t contradict this. It creates a situation where you go “let’s remove all counters and add the mana to my mana pool” and then go “wait, back up, we need to not do that and instead add a flood counter and draw a card”. The way the card is actually printed, you would go “let’s remove all counters” then “were any counters actually removed? If yes, add mana. If no, add a counter and draw a card.”

          According to proper semantics, this is a goof. According to the rules of Magic, this is proper ordering.

        • Giby86 .

          Still, that doesn’t look even remotely close to “linear”. This is a complicated card. Between a complicated rulebox and a slightly less complicated, but substantially easier to break one, they’ll always go for the former. Luckily.

  • DarthinvaderIX

    But having more counters doesn’t make it better

  • Giby86 .

    Why?

    • Cthulhooo

      I guess atraxa players see stuff with counters and automatically go nuts xD

  • the mad seer

    i wish it was an upkeep trigger, i wanted to use it in my paradox haze+extra turn deck

    • Happy The Cat

      why? adding mana to your mana pool not during a main phase is useless most of the time due to it leaving your pool. this card would be unplayable if it was upkeep.

      • the mad seer

        they could add text that says “this mana does not empty from your mana pool this turn”, it would be a little more complicated but otherwise it is much harder to build around

        • Daniel Scott

          Wouldn’t have been the first time they had used almost that exact wording.

          Edit: It’s normally just phases that they let you keep it through with cards like this now that I think about it.

  • Víctor Navarro Alcaraz

    A card based on the egyptian crop seasons is an absolute flavor win

  • Random Guy

    Remove ALL counters. There is no difference between 1 flood counter and 2 flood counters at all.

  • Zombie

    Huge flavor win, but it still probably won’t be good enough for constructed. Simic EDH decks the world over will be picking this up for sure, though.

  • ConDucktor Whirl Crate God

    Actually Atraxa doesn’t want this. My Atraxa needs counter helpful cards….Like As Fate Foretold :D

  • SorasOtherForm

    It can go in Animar

  • galen150

    just because its good? proliferating the counters does nothing because it only cares if there are or are not counters so i don’t see why you’d specifically put it in atraxa. it could literally go in any deck with green and blue.

  • Shagoth

    “Hey, I heard you simic players like to do simic things, but you have the simic creatures down to a simictree, So we simmiced your non creature simics. This is the most simiccy thing you simic commander players will ever simic!”
    Btw I hate autocorrect, I thought I already dealt with mimic vs simic

  • MrAptronym

    It’s relatively rare to get these kind of cards asymmetrically. Having it alternate is pretty fun. I’ll definitely find a place for this one.

  • Gareth Martin

    Lol!

  • kmk888

    I like this card enough to ignore my instincts that it won’t make it to constructed

  • Vizzerdrix

    Oooh a new toy for my ezuri morph edh. Very happy with this. Too bad it doesn’t get any added bonus from doubling season, would be kinda busted in an atraxa deck if it did

  • Delipha

    This,I want this for Kruphix!

  • Uncertain Title

    Man, I love the flavor of this card! The flood comes in, carrying the mana, the flood retreats, leaving spoils long lost below the waves!
    Plus it fits blue’s card draw and green’s mana ramp strategies! It fits so well flavor-wise ^ ^

  • Solarstorm flare

    This plays well.
