    R&D: lets force mono G like insane

    White Weenie will empty it’s hand with this boy. Seems like a much more balanced Gaea’s Cradle/Serra’s Sanctum IMO. Probably won’t be as expensive as Cavern was, too!

    mono black control here I come!

  • William S. Miller

    I like this card. . .

  • Fbn Dnl Schlr

    EDH staple. WOW.

  • Kevan Kramer

    I’m glad Legendary lands are back. Can’t wait to have this card in my decks.

    • MtgMind-Welder98

      Me too :)

    EPIC

    It’s a multicolored Cradle. Get your foils now before the price skyrockets.

      It’s a good thing this thing is legendary or else this would be next to impossible to order full playsets of before the set is even partly spoiled let alone released.

      Man this is definitely looking like there is some major potential for battle cruiser magic going down in this set. This makes monstrous card’s or even Bestow high cost abilities look a bit better.

        I’ve already ordered my playset with a foil among them for EDH.

        Having a Shrine in any deck, even multicolored, seems like it would be far too good to pass up.

        Especially in the likes of Mono- Green Ramp, Mono- Black control, etc.

        I’m actually considering a copy in my mono-black Zombies for Modern. With the likes of the Lords and Geralf’s Messenger, it should be easy to just dump my entire hand thanks to a huge pile of Black mana in my pool from the Shrine.

    wow so lets see who can break this card in legacy the fastest (if it is even possible). 4 gaea’s cradle and a few of these + elves combo + hard casting emrakul =??? awesomeness !
