The next Magic: the Gathering set, Streets of New Capenna is already at the start of its spoiler season. The new set, focusing on three color “wedges” or trios, finishes off the cycle of lands that started in Ikoria: Land of Behemoths. The “Triome” cycle of lands featured five three color pairs for lands. They’re immensely powerful and useful lands for all kinds of decks across Magic’s various formats. In Modern, they’re the backbone of 3 and 4 color mana bases. In Commander/EDH, these lands are also the best kind of color fixing you can get from a land. The cherry on top is that they have basic land types, so you can search them with cards like the “fetchlands” or Farseek.
Now with Streets of New Capenna, we’re getting the other five “wedges” or trios.
These are the “Skyscaper” variants of the new cards. Wizards of the Coast announced that there would be three versions of each of these lands in packs.
This now means that players who wanted “fetchable” tri-lands for these colors have access to any of the ten. For decks in EDH that play four or more colors, these lands are likely the best possible that you can run. 5 color decks now have a full set of ten lands to make mana fixing a breeze.
In other formats like Modern, Historic, Pioneer, or Standard, these lands add to already great mana fixing, Outside of the “Shock” Lands from the Ravnica sets or “fetch” lands, these are the next best option to play across the board.
