Card Dump: Temporary Mana
Hello! Today i bring you a couple of cards that grant mana boosts in colors that don’t usually get them.
Black is still tertiary in mana boosts, usually in the form of boosting Swamp production, but not nearly as much as it used to since it lost its rituals to red. This is a purely mechanical decision, though, since it’s easy to make flavorful cards for it.
Blue, on the other hand, usually only gets mana boosts to accelerate artifacts. I feel that using a spell to strictly make your next spell cheaper, rather than adding to your mana pool where you can spend it however you want, has a flavor of research and preparation that makes it a nice fit for blue.
Until next time!
