Some of the less-glorious moments in blue-black-dual-land-naming history:

Bad River

Polluted Delta - $31
Watery Grave - $18
River of Tears - $1.50
Sunken Ruins - $6.30
Drowned Catacomb - $3.50
Darkslick Shores - $9.50

Bad River - $0.30

Clearly much worse than Polluted Delta, and much slower than the rest (usually), however for budget players, this card is still useful. Plus I imagine it would be useful in EDH/Commander.

While clearly sub par to later fetch lands these are still effect in casual play.

Amulet of vigor and these puppies would be better than the fetch lands.

I think this card gets a bad rep because it's outclassed by Polluted Delta. Sure it's strictly worse, but Drowned Catacomb is strictly worse than Underground Sea and look at how well IT'S doing. Bad river can STILL search out Ravnica and Revised Dual Lands and have them come in untapped (assuming you pay the 2 life for the Ravnica land of course) and all I have to do is wait a turn. Just because Polluted Delta is used over this in competitive play it doesn't mean the MUCH MUCH cheaper version is completely useless. I'd give it a solid 3.75/5 for yes, coming in tapped, but still getting the job done in the Dual Lands department.

thats because it is a "bad river".

Good for their time, though the later search-lands surpass this.

@WarioMan: Please remember what "strictly worse" is supposed to mean. If this one ALSO forced you to pay 1 life, THEN you'd be able to say "strictly".

"Worse" (usually; what happens if you're actually AT 1 life?), I can understand. But not "strictly worse"...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
