Sample Unit ~ Altar Tollgate ~

Summary: Set.3 is out except in North America.  I still do not have any of my Set.3 cards yet.  So this unit is from Japanese forum site.  At the first glance, it was thought of as the least useful ritual, Theraclave Tollagate, has quite bit of potential.  Here is one example unit using it.

Unit Contents

293. Theraclave Tollgate

92. Goghlie Altar

 

 

How does this Unit work?

It turns out that Tollgate really blocks all the mana gain but the mana phase.  This applies to exit mana, Goghlie Altar mana as well.  So use this first and then use Altar during the same turn. This will ensure only you get mana, but not the opponent. Additionally, you get more buck by destroying enemy creatures with the mana that you gained because no exit mana will be produced from those creatures destroyed during this turn. (even the Novogus Catapalt)

    Works even better just before Blinding Skies or Phasues 🙂

  2. Goghlie Altar + Parmetic Castigation is also very nice combo.

    I love the way we’re all now finding the real usage of previously thought ‘garbage’ cards…
    A victory for the positive people!
    Another one is ‘hymn’ healing card, it does include the creature you cast it on, being much more useful than healing showers in multi-elemental decks, a must for me!

    @Slarth

    Definitely works well with reset type of actions.

    @Schobbo

    I have a feeling Castigation will become one of the most popular spell.

    It’s always in my deck…
    BUT!
    Here’s the question…
    Do you now use a ritual spell to prevent / remove mana from your opponent (a la lapse / gate) or do you go for 3 x high mana generators?
    It’s a toughie…
    Mana generators are better against winnies…
