A card that has spawned a legacy deck gets 4/5? NO!! 5/5!
Posted By: DyadyaIstvan (5/9/2010 3:12:56 PM)


And according to level 4 judge Rune Horvik (as can be seen at
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp ily/rh92):

If you don't have any lands in your library you reveal all the cards
left in the library, then the Charbelcher deals 1 damage for each
revealed card.

Even if one part of an effect fails, the other parts will try to do as
much as possible. Revealing the land is just a stop condition, it's not
a requirement to deal damage (it doesn't say "if you reveal a land..." ).

I've been using this card since '03/'04. Of course, back then we were still playing this in type 1. Check the Gencon 04 vintage top 8 for the deck example. At any rate I just bought my chrome mox playset to build the legacy version for the first time ever in over 14 years.

Even when you aren't playing a wacky landless deck, this is still good, repeatable burn. This is a great card.

@ Harleau: I always wanted there to be a Scry X, where X is the number of cards in your library.

Anyway, I really wish I could somehow give a nonland card in my library the subtype Mountain and change the wording on the card so it triggered when you revealed a land OR a Mountain.

Anyways, awesome card and I'm not sure of why it isn't seeing any play in Modern (sure they don't have Taiga, but there are still Shocklands)

Good by itself, degenerate when built around.

I didn't realise it worked without lands... this may find a home in my 0-lands deck now :).

@Harleau: If you're activating this with no lands in your deck, you probably just won the game.

No you don't need a land for it to work, if it hits the end, you end up revealing your entire library and dealing that much damage.

Remember, in magic you only follow a spell/abilities direction to the best that you can. If it's complete or in this case, not possible to complete, then you simply move on to the rest of the directions.

This is a common known ruling for this card and has been addressed multiple times with the same answer by DCI judges and mtg salvation forum topics.

Has anyone realized that, with no land, this card lets you rig your deck? See the last sentence on the card - put them on the bottom in ANY ORDER. You could make sure you have all the mana draws you need to epically win.
