I imagine for a mill deck this is a great way to finish off the game, just bring back ALL your lands and get rid of whatever the opponent has left, it won't matter when they go to draw and lose next turn anyhow.

great with landfall mill... but its just too slow, especially at 3U. If it was 1U for a 0/1 flyer, it would be playable

Am I the only one who read this as Soratami MINEsweeper?

Mill decks. Armageddon. Herald of Leshrac. Bounce opponents lands to their hand with the Herald or bounce your lands for safekeeping to follow up with 'Geddon.

I think this is a great EDH/Commander card!

It can protect your expensive "one of" lands from "Land Destruction" while punishing your opponent by milling two cards for trying, all this and it can be tapped or untapped to activate.

It can get rid of Sensei's Divining Top once it's on top of a library.

It can counter a miracle card that was tutored for and placed on top of a deck, or other such top deck strategy.

It can work in conjunction with many come into play effect land cards like Bajuka Bog, Vesuva, Halimar Depths, Teetering Peaks, The life gain lands, etc.

You can use it with Tolarian Academy or Gaea's Cradle by tapping for mana, then returning playing again, then tapping again!

Landfall implications have already been mentioned.

All this with a four toughness (hard to kill with damage) flier! No one really wants to kill this ... (see all)

No need to complicate things.

Mindsweeper and Crab with Training Grounds, a way to get land out fast, then some more control/mill.

This card should get new life in a landfall deck!

I had a Moonfolk Mill deck that I was putting together that abused this card.


Lands: 17

10 Island
1 Urza's Tower
1 Urza's Mine
1 Urza's Power Plant
4 Cloudpost

Creatures: 12

2 Patron of the Moon
4 Soratami Mindsweeper
3 Trinket Mage
2 Floodbringer
1 Meloku the Clouded Mirror

Spells: 31

3 Amulet of Vigor
4 Aether Spellbomb
4 Expedition Map
4 Ponder
4 Quest of Ancient Secrets
4 Boomerang
4 Treasure Hunt

Basically, get the pieces out, then mill in one turn. Lots of bounce, card recursion, cheap search tech for lands other than basic types, and card draw. You'd be surprised how consistent it was. Had to take it apart for some of the cards, but I might put it tog... (see all)

I'm so glad those fruity moonfolk didn't get new life in zendikar.
