While everyone knows Force of Will can disrupt these turn 1 kills, few people realize that the otherwise medicore Scars of the Veteran is one of the only cards that can do the same.

This card is so pretty in its physical form. The art is amazing and the foiling really enhance the colors and make them come alive. Wasn't much of a Rebecca Guay fan before, but this art is definitely some of the best I've seen on a Magic card.

A) awesome art
B) Totally broken. Magic is like the Imperium from Warhammer 40k: "Life is the cheapest commodity"

LOL. This card is "GG: Add 19 to your mana pool."

I can't imagine why this ever caused a problem...

"Since when does green pay life?"

Channel was first printed in Alpha, alongside Fastbond. It seems the original designers thought that exchanging life for access to mana was something that green should be able to do. Obviously, paying life has become black's sort of thing, but it hasn't always remained exclusive to that color.

Every time I read this cards name I immediately tag "Fireball" onto the end.

@Gako: Hands now firmly raising the roof.

The way I see this (and Fastbond) is that you temporarily strengthen your tie to the land, but the added drain of pulling the mana from it is a little too powerful for your frame.

if your first turn win involves a black lotus, don't even bother posting it.
