Since the "Favorite Magic Cards" seem to be popular. Favorite land?
I like all the Unglued/Unhinged Lands, and think that Wizards of the Coast should make them the standard lands... the card design is just so nice...
I like Lotus Vale.
When Lotus Vale comes into play, you may sacrifice two untapped lands. If you don’t, sacrifice Lotus Vale. If you do, Lotus Vale gains "T: Add three mana of any one color to your mana pool."
Strip Mine, City of Brass, Diamond Valley, Forbidden Orchard, Oddessy Fetch-lands(especially Bloodstained Moor), Rishadan Port, Phyrexian Tower, and.....Lake of the Dead.....oh wait, Cabal Coffers too heart
My Unhinged Island. Why? Because it's beautiful. The Unhinged and Unglued lands are luvverly.
Otherwise, I can't say I really have a favorite land. I've not bothered using one that gave me a huge advantage or anything.
I love the Unglued lands and the snow-covered lands.
Snow-covereds are neat also, mainly because I like snowy stuff. Though I've heard Ice Age sucked.
I disagree on that idea, that Ice Age sucked. IMHO, it was a really well rounded set, and IIRC, it was the first set to really usher in the age of big combo decks that we know today, such as Necro, then Pros-Bloom, and then the Urza's Block power combos that we all know and hate/love.
Ice Age was also the first true standalone expansion set, at 383 cards, and was the first expansion set that could be played using ONLY the set a lone, if one so choosed.
Block wise, Alliances is definately the powerhouse. Deadly Insect, a powerful 6/1 cannot be target of spells or abilites, the powerful Balduvian Horde, and the VERY fameous Force of Will.
