    Hope so, but not 60.

    It was in 4th and Battle Royale. I mean, I'm sitting on a ton waiting for this very day, but there's a ton of 4th out there.

    I can not see Parfait working in Legacy.
    I hope it generally flops so that they go on unbanning stuff.

    I am so glad I had my playset. I fucking love this card!
    I am convinced that WotC is "dumbing" the game because of all the stupid posts they come across on MTG-related forums

    Nothing is going to happen. Just a bunch of speculation and price jumps

    I was really expecting the unban for Earthcraft.

    Land Tax will definetely make Wasteland worse, and maybe power up some control.decks.

    Land Tax sucks in Legacy. Don't purchase a set since you won't make the expected profit.

    I'm shocked they actually had the stones to unban Land Tax after waiting so long, especially after Aaron Forsythe mentioned how the infamous 'time issue' was the main force behind keeping Land Tax banned for years. (Shocked, for lack of a better term - don't take it literal, i'm tired).

    I was really hoping Earthcraft would be unbanned, but unbanning Land Tax is a long overdue gift to the Legacy community. Hurray!

    I'm hoping our claims that the 'time issue' wouldn't be an issue become officially true.

    Land Tax will do neither. Having enough basics in your deck to make Land Tax worth it is a serious drawback, and the control deck most likely to benefit from LT - monowhite - is bad.

    I can't believe they actually did it this time. The most talked about card to unban in the history of the format and they finally go through with it.
    "Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job."
    "Politicians are like diapers. They should be changed often and for the same reason."
    "Governing is too important to be left to people as silly as politicians."
    "Politicians were mostly people who'd had too little morals and ethics to stay lawyers."

    I found some for $9 apiece. Figured it didn't hurt to grab 4.

    Don't get me wrong. Land Tax is a nightmare for RUG Delver. And the ramp it provides will certainly make adaptations in a lot of decks.

    I have a broken Land Tax deck:

    4 Land Tax
    4 Griselbrand
    ...

    Wait, we don't need the first 4 anymore....

    It doesn't really ramp, though. I mean, if you're a land behind the opponent, they can turn off your Land Tax by simply missing a land drop and daring you to hamstring yourself on mana by playing another land. RUG Delver, for example, doesn't often have a bunch of lands in play; you'll likely get an LT trigger and then you'll have the same number of lands.

    one LT trigger is all that you need. If the rest of your deck is doing work as it should you'll hang in tough then just make basic land drops. Once you're at about four or so in play thresh just loses.
