When looking through recent results of Pauper daily events in Magic Online, I noticed that some of the Infect decks are using Land Grant.
For the life of me, I can't figure out what this card is doing in the deck.
- It doesn't accelerate your mana
- It doesn't find lands other than Forests
- You have to reveal your hand to use it (or pay 1G, but I'm pretty sure that no one ever does that)
In other words, it's functionally identical to just having another Forest in your deck, except with additional downside. So why are they playing it? Pauper is a very competitive format on MTGO, so I don't expect people to put cards in their deck for no good reason... but I can't figure out what the reason is.
