Prismatic Omen will override Blood Moon since it's in addition to other types, and you'll be able to tap for any color.

>>54132800
Not quite. Both Prismatic Omen and Blood Moon's effect are applied in layer 4-- type-changing effects. Because neither Prismatic Omen nor Blood Moon's effects are dependent on another we can ignore dependency issues and apply the effects in time-stamp order.

If Blood Moon entered first, then Prismatic Omen, we would apply Blood Moon's effect first, making all non-basic lands mountains. Finally Prismatic Omen would make all lands every basic land type in addition to their other types, capable of tapping for any color of mana.

If Prismatic Omen entered first, with Blood Moon second, then we would apply Prismatic Omen's effect making all lands every basic land type, but non-basics will still remain non-basic. Then Blood Moon would make all non-basics just mountains.

If they'd just ban it I would stop caring. It's the ONLY card in it's class. No other reserved list card or even regular card costs THIS much and is a staple that should be in 99.9% of decks that can use it. Prove me wrong.

This is possibly the biggest issue. It's preventing Legacy from actually growing and shutting new players out of the market. Which appeals to 40 something losers who've dedicated their lives to MTG.

Someone should compare reserve/ban lists to gate keeping and demonstrate they keep minorities from playing MTG. Getting Twitter and tumblr into enough of a frenzy and Daddy Hasbro will bring the hammer down on WotC fucking quick.

The problem with that is EDH is super casual, and most people playing MLD aren't competitive, they don't use them to win. They use them to slow the game down.

And given that casual EDH games of 5ish players can already take several hours, MLD can easily update that if someone doesn't have something to win the game with afterwards.

If it's a sanctioned tournament for points you cannot run proxies in the traditional sense. Only tournament legal proxies are ones that a judge okays on the spot for a card damaged during the tournament. Proxies as in stand-ins for not having a card are not allowed in any sanctioned tournament. Really they aren't supposed to be in any tournament with a payout but that's not enforceable short of reporting to WOTC.

Has Sheldon ever said what the price limit for banning is? He banned power because of it's perceived barrier to entry, and that was a over a decade ago. Power was a lot cheaper then. At this rate duals and cradle will get close to those prices, and they are definitely must haves for people in those colors, so they fulfill the other requirements for "perceived barrier to entry" I think you could get an unlimited Mox Emerald for 500ish a decade ago, probably a bit less if you searched.

The guy(s) that ban cards only ban whatever they personally don't like in their own playgroup and never think about the rest of the people everywhere else that like playing EDH.
There are reasons there's plenty of other problem cards like Paradox Engine that are allowed - someone in their playgroup plays it in a combo, and therefor they don't ban it because it would be against their personal interest to do so.

Bazaar is only good in dredge, moat and tabernacle are also only good in select builds (namely ones that don't rely much on creatures, which isn't common when every deck gets a creature in their "opening hand")

Diamond Valley is the best sac land that exists and Moat and Tabernacle are extremely useful in each stax deck. Bazaar is good in each graveyard based strategy.
Still Cradle is only good in a green deck that runs creatures, it's not that different. I'd rather have a land that kills my opponent's creatures or taps his mana rather than have a G for every creature I control.

The guildgates are not going to work well in 5-color unless you are a land deck focused on using them.

Tabernacle is playing on an entirely different level, though. Diamond valley is JUST a sac outlet, tabernacle is a punishing control piece that can paralyze decks. Landed early (when curve matters) it doesn't have to produce mana because if you're running tabernacle it sets you ahead on tempo by setting everyone else back.

Diamond valley doesn't do that. It never improves your tempo or hurts your opponent. It just trades a creature for some life once a turn -- more life than High Market, but 90% of decks that would use it don't CARE about the life, they care about death triggers and having a creature in the 'yard. At that point, why should I not prefer High Market, that doesn't FORCE me to stumble when I use my land drop on it?

If you're saccing tokens or Reassembling Skeleton and friends then High Market is the better choice, but for something like Meren or Karador, High Market can actually gain enough life to make an impact. It honestly depends on the type of sac shenanigans you're doing.
