"Equipped creature gets +1/+1 for each land on the battlefield with the same name as the exiled card." Cards like Stormtide Leviathan, Prismatic Omen, and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth only change land types, so sadly no combo. Still monstrous in monocolored decks or multiplayer, though.

Ya'know, it'd be REALLY awesome if you people learned how to read. Prismatic Omen, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, do NOT change the card's name, they change the type. Strata Scythe only cares about the NAME, not the TYPE. If I ever saw someone trying to run that combo, I'd probably laugh so hard I'd end up forefitting the game for lack of ability to think clearly.

This card certainly rocks in EDH games. Probably most effectively in a green deck, since it ramps into lands so easily and effectively. I have it in my Kemba deck, and it gets pretty crazy.

what endersblade said. this card does NOT have the same effect as dungrove elder, lashwrithe. dungrove elder cares about type, this cares about name. breeding pool is a forest, so dungrove elder counts it, but this would not, it would only count lands literally named "forest"

this means, logically, that if you're using cards that boost based on land type the best way to counteract this card is by running snow lands. unless the person running this artifact specifically exiles a snow land, your lands do not count towards their bonus. lashwrithe treats "swamp" and "snow-covered swamp" identically but this will not.

This card is just plain powerful used on its own in mono-decks, or in combination with other cheap artifacts, such as Basilisk Collar, Infiltrators Lens, or Echo Circlet. Will be a lot of fun to use.

@PocoLocoCrow: Well actually the Scythe says same name as the land you exiled. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth makes lands swamp (basic land type), not swamp (card).
@Gabriel422: The above would (probably) be the reason it doesn't just say pick a basic land type, since if it did the above would work, and be ludicrous. (Or Stormtide Leviathan But maybe WOTC was just looking for another excuse for an imprint card.

Either way though, I agree with the sentiment that it's great with infect, although I wish it was 2 to cast instead of 3.

Everything that removes basic lands from deck deserves a 5 in my book.

I've been having quite a bit of fun strapping this thing on Spikeshot Elder and pinging for 10+ at a time.

Freakin awesome for soldiers, goblins and vampires. Its like nightmare lash for any mono colors, with no pinch....and even better.
