Power rare?!?

    I just don't get it. Lots of people (even vintage players!) are getting hyped up about this new card, Prismatic omen:
    Prismatic omen,

    I just don't get how it's supposed to be really that good.
    Can someone explain this to me?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if the lands have the basic land type, doesn't that mean they produce the appropriate mana, too?

    Not that I'm saying that's why this would be such a power rare, but that seems like a good thing.
  3. Budget Player Cadet Where in the world is BPC

    Yes, good point.

    So, all my lands produce any color mana? That's pretty huge.

    I'm not that knowledgeable about the latest deck styles, but i just got some ideas about the Invasion block cards that depend on how many different basic land types you have in play.

    Prismatic Domain..... sounds fun!

    It's a "Power Rare" because we're told it's a power rare. :rolleyes:
  7. Venton Member

    And I read it on the intarwebs, so it must be true.
  8. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Intrawebs??? Spidey is out influenceing more people!!!! WE MUST PUT A STOP TO THIS!!!!!

    WARNING: Actual content post is incoming......

    I like the card quite a bit. In fact, it is a definite acquire for my enchantment deck. Do you think it is likely to become restricted in any format? If not may try to get an entire playset!

    END WARNING: That should about do it for any relevent content from me for at least 2-3 months.

    It surely won't be restricted in any format. It's nowhere near the powerlevel of Bitterblossom, and even if someone manages to break the card, I still don't see it win fast enough to become a competitive deck.

    Outside type 2 there is plenty of manafix (that's basically all it is, except for gaea's might get there in extended, which won't be in extended after October, so don't worry about it), so I doubt this'll see a lot of play.

    It's a nice card for casual play though :)

    You won't win games with this card unless you combine it with something else, unlike bitterblossom. It won't even keep you from losing games, like damnation/wog.

    It does let you play a full domain, but it still doesn't get you any lands. If you want a full domain, you still need 5 lands to produce UBRGW. I can see it's use in enchantress though, or huge decks like 5color. Sure, it let's you run Corrupt or Flow of ideas in your otherwise monogreen deck, but if you draw those without Prismatic omen they're dead cards. And the Omen is dead without those cards. I wouldn't take that risk unless you were running a lot of colors to begin with, and get rewarded for playing enchantmets. Like, enchantress :)

    Coalition Victory?

    That's a nice combo with Scrapbasket :D
  15. Shabbaman insert avatar here

    So you need Coalition victory, Prismatic omen, Scrapbasket or some other 5-colored permanent, and 8 lands. Well, 1 land and 8 mana to be exact. Granted, it is a combo, but not enough to declare it a power rare. Still the card seems to have some value, so it must be better than I think it is.
  16. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Well, that's just one example. And I kind of hate Coalition Victory, but it seems like it could be fun.

    Nah, I don't think it's a power rare at all. It's decent, but nothing spectacular. Saproling Burst is a power rare. This just looks fun, not intimidating.
