    I love the artwork for this card! :D

    • Jacob Kodicovic

      I agree.

  • Jalais

    Bleh, looks like the worst of the three deserts to me. Why is this uncommon?

    • Jacob Kodicovic

      Because it’s almost an entirely better Quicksand, which is an uncommon itself.

    • DJ Pad

      It’s actually probably the best. This has potential to maybe see play in legacy lands and is a powerful effect if you can recur it with loam or crucible.

    I wanted the artwork to be a reprint of endliss ranks of the dead

    Gitrog just got a little better….

  • Tolle

    Why sorcery speed? Why?

    • Ryan Sullivan

      Because it’s uncommon

          So colorless uncommon mana sources will not likely get instant removal abilities like that one would be.

          • Tolle

            A single -1/-1 counter is hardly great removal. Especially at the cost of losing a land.

          • Hedronal

            Colorless removal being keywords, this is a -1/-1 counter theme card, not meant to be anything strong given it fits into so many decks by color.

          • Tolle

            There are a lot of colorless removal, some at instant speed

          • Hedronal

            How much on uncommon lands? If any, then point 2 is a different current standard intended balance.

      Because Magic is turning into Hearthstone.
