Bull. A Portugese "Vale dos Lótus" landed in my mailbox just moments ago.

My buddies and i still use it in a cube as a black lotus land. If you don't wanna sack two lands fine, but you are able to get three mana before you sac it.

An amazing card. I would sacrifice two of the original dual lands to play it.

Definitely my favorite land card.

Sure, due to Strip Mine and family, it´s pretty risky to play this, but the possibilities of producing infinite mana with this, make me love to take this risk.

I only say Cloud of Faeries - FTW

Pretty cool, but beware of land destruction spells.

knight of the reliquary, just saying

play the knight, then sac a land and search this, sac two more, still have 3 mana avaliable, and you've put 3 lands into the yard

Life from the Loam + Landfall in a land destruction deck...

To be fair, even if they didn't change the wording, they wouldn't have "reprinted black lotus." Because this at least takes up a land drop.

You know what you could use this for?

Having a non-basic land for Tarmogoyf.

See, you COULD play Lotus Vale without sacrificing two other lands. It would just be sacrificed itself. That'd just add an additional +1/+1 for free.


Mind you, playing a fetchland is a much better idea... but... I'm just brainstorming!

A nice little combo with Second Sunrise. On turn three you can play the vale, and tap it for 3 to play the sunrise to get 6 mana available on turn 4. It could potentially go in any deck too since the vale taps for any color, probably best for something with white in it at least though.

You can actually cheat this into play if Humility and Living Plane are on the field.

Oh did I just mentioned an insane combo that makes all lands to lose mana abilities?

Crucible of worlds, yes. Knight of the Reliquary, yes. Flagstones of Trokair, yes. But you all failed to mention Sun Titan...

He gets lands back, too.

Also, Cartographer and Harvest Wurm.

Wizards attempts to reprint Black Lotus seem to work out similarly to Wile E. Coyote's attempts to catch the Road Runner.

I wonder how long it took them to realize they functionally reprinted black lotus. Its not anymore with the oracle though.

o_O

ummm....yes. well.

it's Black Lotus. even with the penalty, it's still Black Lotus. Yes, at any given time, rather than destroy the Reserved List, they could just Errata Lotus Vale....and then the Dual Land/Moxen/Black Lotus crisis would be partly helped.

This card could rise to a couple hundred if they did that, but I don't think it's rare enough to warrant a Grand. :P

Okay! So I thought of an infinite mana any color combo with this card, Oboro Breezecaller, Patron of the Moon, and two other lands on the field that don't bounce other land.

Step 1: Tap Lotsu Vale for three {W} {U} {B} {R} {G}.
Step 2: Pay {2} to bounce misc. land with Oboro Breezecaller's ability. Untap Lotus Vale. One floating mana of the color tapped with Lotus Vale.
Step 3: Repeat Step 1 than 2. Two mana floating of any color.
Step 4: Pay {1} to place the two land you bounced into play with Patron of the Moon's ability. One mana of any color you choose left floating.
Step 5: Repeat Steps 1 through 4 for infinite mana of any color combination!

Yay! I think I semi-redeemed Oboro Breezecaller, with it's absolutely GORGEOUS artwork!

Sorry for any formatting issues, and I'm sure someone else has though of this before, but I didn't see it posted up here so... And I know it's fragile, but hey! Who's gonna suspect Oboro Breezecaller as pa... (see all)

I used to play with this card. On the surface it's beautiful. But then you play it and your opponent follows up next turn with Stone Rain or whatever.

Use with Crucible of Worlds or similar combo. By itself, it can end up deciding the game, against your favor.

Man oh man. I had one of these cards for so long (traded for it, thought I got ripped off for a while) -- and I never, until after it was errated, realized that it could be literally used like a Black Lotus simply by playing it and tapping it in response to the entered-play trigger. Oh well, too late now.

It's still a decent card, and not even just in a land recursion deck. The removal of mana burn and the steady decline of land destruction have helped it out significantly.
