How Much Mana Can the Stronghold Produce?

Welcome to #CMAskTheJudge! This week, our judge wants to know how much mana Cabal Stronghold, the new version of the Commander all-star, Cabal Coffers, can produce when you control it with Swamps, Wastes, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or Plains. Comment on our video (or below) with your answers and, additionally, you will find the correct answer below the images!

Cabal Stronghold Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

The answer is that you will get three black mana. Because of Urborg, every land is a Swamp in addition to its other types. Sadly, Cabal Stronghold only searches for the subtype Swamp, combined with the type Basic. Fortunately, it does not care how the type Swamp got on the Basic. So, Urborg will also help with the new Coffers, but only when combined with real basic lands.

3 black mana since both the plains and the wastes have the basic type
