Diamante Ojo de León

Lion's Eye Diamond - 1 versions

De cero a héroe

Cuando el diamante ojo de león entró en escena con Espejismo en octubre de 1996, se recibió con una gran decepción por parte de muchos jugadores. Wizards of the Coast había troleado a jugadores prometiéndoles un artefacto de coste cero que produjera 3 manás de cualquier color hasta que se reveló la carta, las expectativas de que se reimprimiera un Black Lotus o algo muy parecido eran muy altas.

Que no el ojo del tigre

Al ver el Diamante ojo de león que requiere que el jugador descarte su mano para conseguir esos tres manás prometidos, muchos estaban disgustados y consideraron esa carta totalmente inútil, como si fuera una broma de mal gusto. Algunos sin embargo, no se dieron por vencido. Encontró algunos usos que le dieron entrar en la Reserved List, hacienda que su precio subiera despacio pero con firmeza durante años.

Siendo bastante raro, pasaron cerca de dos décadas para que el precio de la carta subiera en serio, duplicando su precio en unas semanas a primeros de 2016 antes de estabilizarse nuevamente con el nivel del momento. Subió de precio otra vez en el mismo año y el precio empezó a descender hasta que volvió a subir en 2018 triplicando su precio en la subida anterior. Con la política de que no se va a reimprimir, el precio de esta carta pinta a que va a seguir firme en aumento, al menos en un futuro cercano.

Diamante ojo de león es el loto gris

Diamante ojo de león es una carta única con sus propias restricciones de tiempo. Requiere una construcción del mazo con una mayor atención para aprovechar mejor lo que la carta puede aportar. Con el manejo adecuado, la carta no solo es tan fuerte como el Black Lotus, sino que funciona como un Black Lotus con alguna ventaja más.

La carta original dice: "Sacrifica el Diamante ojo de león, descarta tu mano: añade tres maná de cualquier color a tu reserva de maná. Juega esta habilidad como una fuente de maná." El texto actual dice: "Descarta tu mano, sacrifica el Diamante ojo de león: añade tres maná de cualquier color. Activa esta habilidad en cualquier momento en el que puedas jugar un instantáneo."

Esta corrección significa que puedes jugar el Diamante ojo de león no puede usarse para jugar hechizos de tu mano de la forma habitual. Pero su habilidad solo se puede activar cuando se pueda jugar un instantáneo, esto es todavía una habilidad de maná que se resuelve al instante, incluso si otros efectos van a la pila después de sacrificar el diamante.

Si esto es demencia, estoy lleno de alegría

Una manera de jugar el Diamante para mantener la prioridad es jugar un tutor o un efecto de deseo y después petarlo en respuesta para conseguir el maná sin descartar la carta que has conseguido con el tutor o el deseo. Este es un uso muy popular como por ejemplo, en mazos Bomberman. Usando Karn, el Gran Creador para traer una Red de micosintético de tu banquillo a la mano para activar el la habilidad de maná de la Red de micosintético y tener el maná para pagar la mitad del artefacto. Y en la mayoría de los casos, esto encerrará a tu oponente sin apenas poder jugar cuando lo combinas con la habilidad estática del Karn. En estrategias basadas en el cementerio como dragar, activar la habilidad en respuesta a un robo de carta, es excelente para conseguir cartas con la habilidad de dragar de la mano al cementerio.

Diamante ojo de león se juega también en mazos como Legacy Storm en el que El pasado en llamas te permite volver a jugar cualquier instantáneo o conjuro descartado usando el maná del artefacto. En Vintage Storm, Voluntad de Yawgmoth también te permite jugar el diamante de nuevo para duplicar la ganancia de maná. De poco sirve en ese caso que la carta esté restringida en Vintage.

Ya sea por su precio o por otros factores, el Diamante ojo de león está solo en el 1 % de todos las mazos de Commander registrados en EDHREC y uno uso de la carta en este formato se encuentra en las mazos de cEDH con Día del juicio. Si no tueviera un precio tan prohibitivo, el porcentaje de mazos que tendrían la carta sería mucho mayor debido al mazo de Commander 2019, Merciless Rage, que se basa en la habilidad demencia y Anje Falkenrath es el comandante. Diamante ojo de león produce maná rápido y es una manera de descartar cartas para jugarlas por su coste de demencia.

Madre mía... Nunca fue buen jugador de Magic la verdad, pero por lo que veo soy peor tasador de cartas. Entré a MTG en tempest y jugué unos 5 años. Tuve esta carta y LA TIRÉ a la basura de lo mala que la consideraba (junto con otras que creía inútiles, nunca me ha gustado acumular cosas). Ahora que estoy vendiéndolas una por una, veo este precio y me quiero pegar un tiro Jajaja.

En cuanto a utilidad y debilidades, como pide un chico por ahí abajo... Poco puedo aportar, me parece una locura y sigo sin verla tan desmedidamente buena (bendita ignorancia)

Rayica1985(09.07.2018 15:20)

Cartonazo, ahora con el ban del deathrite está más roto todavía!!!!! Dredge returns!!!!!

Nebuchadnezzar(10.05.2018 17:07)

Kalydor: Justamente porque no se juega en casi ningun sitio y es un carta muy especifica como para costar tanto los comentarios son esos. Yo la he visto jugar en la dredge de Legacy donde te va bien descartarte la mano y en la zarzillos storm donde van jugando muchos hechizos baratos y te matan con zarzillos de desesperacion. Tambien llevan el tutor infernal el cual declaras jugarlo y luego pagas con el lion eye, al resolverse estas hellbent

Kalydor(12.02.2018 17:59)

Tengo que quejarme que el enfoque que se le da en los comentarios sea de costes pasados de la carta, interesante, pero no aporta nada al juego en si. Por ejemplo deberíamos enfocar la jugabilidad de la carta en otros decks que no sea la adnauseam (solo la he visto alli) y ver que utilidad y defectos tiene. Yo los desconozco. ¿¿¿Donde se puede usar y que pros y contras tiene??? Muy agradecido.

A mi me duele no pillarlo en su dia, pero mas me duele no haber pillado los 5 moxes por 3000 pesetas porque me parecian caros

Ni 40, ni 15, ni 3.... esto en su dia costaba centimos y nadie lo queria... maldito magic, lo quiero y lo odio al mismo tiempo XD

yo la pillé por 3€ cuando estaba el madness en apogeo y aun la tengo :)

jimbo2991(06.04.2016 17:12)

Sí, ahora que lo dices recuerdo que entre 2005 y 2008 estuvieron por ese precio, me arrepiento todavía más, sí, jajajajajajajaja

espartaco(22.03.2016 02:02)

Tú te arrepientes a 40€, yo los ví a 15 € y me parecían caros...

jimbo2991(09.03.2016 12:40)

Debería de haberlos comprado por 40€... Ahora me arrepiento.
