This week's pick was an easy one! It's an obvious combo with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, which in an EDH game can create an insane amount of mana. I use this in my Grenzo, Dungeon Warden deck to pump into his ability, typically on my opponents end step or during combat (if I'm being attacked).
Now that both of these cards are in Modern, we might see this crop up in some fringe decks. You need a way to tutor a land, but once all your lands are swamps you can go nuts.
With the addition of this into Modern via Modern Horizons 2 a couple other things have changed. Mainly the huge rarity shift from Uncommon to Mythic! Not a surprising move since there is such a high demand for this card in EDH and it's needed a reprint for some time (was around $100).
It also has stunning new Borderless art! Anastasia Ovchinnikova has outdone herself on this one.
Thanks to everyone who sent out awesome trades last week!
