the best use of this land will be buffing Domain effects...

Yeah, Henge of Ramos got owned. It's about the same value as Shimmering Grotto, though.

Fun card in draft. Suddenly, a 3-colour deck gets to pull off 4-colour domain stuff! Not much value otherwise though.

No, it's not strictly better than Shimmering Grotto. This requires that you control another untapped land in order to work, whereas Shimmering Grotto can use mana from other sources. They each have their benefits; neither is strictly better.

It also blows Henge of Ramos and Shimmering Grotto out of the water.

Powerful defense against Spreading Seas.

Wouldn't this be good in Valakut Ramp? Couldn't you counter a Goblin Ruin Blaster by turning your non-basic land into a basic land?

Its not really a great card for regular play, but in the draft I recently played it won me quite a few matches.

I'm new to drafts so I don't know the types, but ours had the rules:

1. open a booster
2. throw in 3 basic lands of each type
3. play an opponent
4. winner takes other's deck and gets a chance to remake deck (30 card min)
5. repeat

Strictly better than Shimmering Grotto. It does everything that SG does, but can benefit you if you have cards that only affect certain basics (Patron of the Orochi, for example). And yes, this makes Henge of Ramos/School of the Unseen look bad.

The Frontier doesn't turn non-basic lands into basic lands, it gives a land a basic land type. So, no, your trick won't work.


Did you miss the part where the target land has to be one you control? The Frontier doesn't help landwalk.
