At time of writing, this is the cheapest of the cycle, despite formerly being second only to Flooded Strand in cost. Part of this is the rotation of Thoughtseize, and Abzan consequently losing some of its death-grip on Standard. It's also partly due to decks like Abzan Company and Abzan Midrange not seeing a whole lot of play in Modern right now.

Still, it's far from being a weak card and has hands-down the best art in the cycle. Upcoming meta shits and the highly anticipated introduction of enemy-colored tango lands in February will all see this card's stocks change and, at the end of the day, it's a fetch land and will be a format staple in Modern and Legacy until the end times.

Would you consider this guys in a three color deck, WGB, too?

MagicTAC1(2015-05-08 16:26)

a must have in any green/white deck, and even playable in standard!

Allied fetchlands were initially printed in Carnage and therefore not legal in Modern.
Their reprint in Khans of Tarkir made them legal in Modern and also dropped their price, making them more afordable.

Fetchlands are the base of the manabase of every modern multicolored deck, get a playset of each as soon as you can!

It's All About Prime Speaker Vannifar

ConstructedBy HansD (2019-03-19)

A Case Study on the Fall of Bant Eldrazi

ConstructedBy HansD (2018-02-02)

Modern evolves as new cards enter the format, broken enablers are banned, and archetypes are discovered through off-the-wall experimentation. What used to be a tier-one archetype can in a few months be outclassed, outdated, and outmatched by the new hotness. Bant Eldrazi is one such archetype that now finds itself looking in from the outside of a format it once used to rule. How did this powerful deck manage to quickly fall from the top of the pile?
