Domain - Conflux Ability


Hi guys.. We will discuss the new conflux ability domain in this post.

Domain is an ability word in the Conflux expansion that counts the number of basic land types among lands you control..

So, there are a total of 5 basic land types currently in magic the gathering namely: Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain and Forest. so, the Domain ability would fetch a number of 5 or less..

let's take this card for example..

Drag Down
Domain — Target creature gets -1/-1 until end of turn for each basic land type among lands you control.

Suppose you have 2 swamps and 5 islands in play. The domain ability for dragdown in this example fetches 2 basic land types among lands you control - Swamp and Island. So it would trigger that target creature will have get -2/-2 until end of turn. Note that it will not matter how many swamps you control, any number of swamps will only trigger 1 basin land type among lands you control. :D

Also note that land types are not only present in BASIC lands, some non-basic lands have basic land types - such as shadowmoor uncommon lands, ravnica rare "dual" lands, those "dual" lands from the alpha, beta... sets and others..

hope this will help clarify some misunderstandings and hope this will help you have a better game experience for magic: the gathering.
