Exclusive Preview: Very Cryptic Command!
It’s Kind of Like a Cryptic Command
The “Very” variety is reminiscent of the classic in many ways.
- It is a Command (and in fact, a “Cryptic” one).
- As such, it has several modes, and asks you to choose two of them.
- And of course, there is the UUU1 in the top-right corner
But in terms of game play? This is a whole other instant!
Well that’s one way to do it…
Isn’t it weird that an Un-set card — ostensibly built for fun rather than Spikes — is primarily geared towards making:
- Infinite mana, and
- Infinite storm count
If you have two copies of Gilded Lotus and two copies of this instant you can tap for UUUUUU, cast Very Cryptic Command to untap the artifacts and re-buy your other Very Cryptic Command.
Then you can do this all you want, over and over again.
Welcome to having as much mana as you want! Eventually, you can use one of the other modes to do anything else, move ahead (and presumably take advantage of your limitless mana and storm count).
Fun… For you, at least!
