Chord of Calling is getting a reprint in M15!
For those of you who don’t know, Chord of Calling is one of the centerpieces of Birthing Pod decks in Modern, after the banning of Green Sun’s Zenith, and is another very expensive reprint.
Original Ravnica ones are sitting at 36 dollars as of this moment, but they’ll be going down any moment now due to the reprint.
This reprint was very needed, and due to our returning mechanic for the set being Convoke, this is probably the only opportunity they’d be able to put this card back into standard.
To actually explain what the card does, it searches for a creature converted mana cost X or less and puts it into play – clean, simple, and effective. In fact, it’s actually better than Green Sun’s Zenith due to the fact it doesn’t have the limitation on what it can search, but at the disadvantage of being 2 green more. However, that’s easily solved with the magical ability of Convoke! With enough on board, you can tap out to search out combo pieces, or just to search whatever you need to pod into, instead of podding into it.
This set is just cranking out surprise after surprise! I’m excited to see what else lies in the last 80-so cards of the set.
Until next time,
