Kozilek, the Great Distortion is the first card we’ve seen using “Wastes” mana.
“I told you, if they ever unveiled the sixth color I’d be on the first flight to New York to talk about it in person. You can’t do this kind of thing over the phone.”
For those of your who have been living under a rock, a new type of basic land has hit the rumor mill: Wastes.
Most of this podcast is our heroes riffing and speculating on the interplay between these two cards — and the cards that will likely come with them.
For its part, Kozilek, the Great Distortion has two heretofore unseen mana symbols in the top-right. Patrick and Michael assume that specific mana from lands like Wastes is required to summon Kozilek.
Once on the battlefield, Kozilek, the Great Distortion allows you to “Disrupting Shoal” anything, provided you have the right casting cost of a card to discard. That is a powerful ability (to, among other things, protect Kozilek from removal)… And remember, Kozilek just drew you up to seven cards! Va va va voom!
In addition, Patrick and Michael talk about top Standard decks from the recent Grand Prix.
… And yes, Patrick really did fly to New York.
