card discussion: Gemstone Mine vs Vivid Lands

Post  Lim-Dul on Wed Aug 27, 2008 1:53 pm

I'm specially refering to the combo of any of these lands with Reflectig Pool on 5 colour decks

what's your opinion???

What lands with Reflecting Pool? o.O
The Vivid Lands are Vivid Crag, Vivid Creek, Vivid Grove, Vivid Marsh and Vivid Meadow.

ok, when you have a vivid land (any of the 5) and a reflecting pool in play the pool gives you mana of any colour (city of brass but without damage),
the same with the mine and the pool.

the question is, besides de use of the pool,
would you rather have a mine (comes into play untaped, gives you any type of mana for 3 times) or
a vivid land (comes into play taped, gives you any type of mana twice but it's own coloured mana while in play)?

I would favour the Mine, of course. Ok, it dies whereas the Vivid lands don't. YET, it plays faster than the Vivid lands (comes into play untapped), can be bounced back when with 1 counter and played again with 3 counters (or removed from the game if you enjoy infinite mana combos, for example) and even if it dies it can be target of some kind of recursion (Regrowth, Crucible of Worlds, whatever).

Check at both cards rarities if you have any doubt. Razz
