    Wait, Desert card? Do we know any Desert cards?

    • MrAptronym

      Well… Desert.

      • eltratzo

        maro talked about that. they won’t bring desert itself back but they will use the subtype

    • Dominic Ng

      Maro has explicitly told us that Desert is not getting reprinted in the latest Making Magic.

      • eltratzo

        he also told us that the subtype will be used and expanded upon.

  • MrAptronym

    Desert hype. Hmm, seems like a solid upgrade over the already solid Krosan Tusker. I guess that’s a little debatable with the 1 higher cycling, but going right onto the battlefield untapped practically negates that. This is going to see major EDH play at least. Oh, and deserts! Weirdly one of the most exciting reveals for me so far.

    • Marky Day

      Yeah, I’m amazed they’ve been holding the Deserts back for so long this spoiler season. i knew they were coming because Maro mentioned them a while ago, but still.

  • Jalais

    Sand mana maybe?


      seems to be colorless

  • Not all Wastes are Deserts; are all Deserts Wastes?



  • Scud422

    Krosan Tusker was in almost every deck that ran green back in its time, I could definitely see this being the same.

    • Aarhg

      Yep, I was thinking of Krosan Tusker as well. I’d say Shefet Monitor looks even better.

  • Bige Boiy

    new desert hype

  • David S. McCrae

    Yeah, maybe Desert will be like the Wastes Basic land from BFZ.
    Some Non-basic lands with the Desert Subtype.
    Seems good, depending on what they do.

    • Johan K

      Desert is already a card. With a land type. For clarity, I am talking about that two different cards can’t have the same name.

      • Happy The Cat

        well, they are adding more desert lands, this fetches any land with the sub-type desert. not with desert in it’s name.


          Maybe there will be more in HoD – maro said so…
          desert will be a subtheme there…

          a common basic land – desert “waste” is still possible as “useless” painland with interact for benefit
          T: add (1), get (1) damage – with some interaction cards it would make sense maybe…
          i wish a mechanic for donation-exchange this with a basic land

          even a fetch-desertland would be nice…

  • Jacob Kodicovic

    Basic landcycling! Now with Deserts!

    • Tolle

      Better. Still gives you card draw.

      • Hedronal

        And gets the land onto the field, untapped even.

  • KrakenHunter

    Desert? WHERE, GIMME NOW

  • Kameenook

    Well boys and girls, time to break out those camels.

  • Kahai

    Dangit! i wanted to use my four FTV deserts in standard….

    • Vizzerdrix

      still might be able to

      • According to Maro, the original Desert was deemed too strong for Standard

  • Kaiser

    Maaan finally a not so great green card, thanks god pharaoh.

  • Insight66

    I like that this shows the world outside Bolas Bubble has an ecosystem.

    Changeling is a thing….

    Draw a card and search for a chameleon colossus or a mirror entity at instant speed put them onto the battlefield

  • Hello there, immensely appealing draft pick

  • kmk888

    When I first read this card, I didn’t realize the land was untapped and still thought it was good. Upon reflection that it can fetch a desert (stop Saheeli combo), the land is untapped (triggering and paying for Drake Haven), and it generates mana with New Perspectives, this is going to be a Standard mainstay for a long time.

    what’s a desert

  • Alex Egertsen

    Desert lands like snow lands?
