Gilded Lotus - 5
Tap: Add three mana of any one color to your mana pool.
Over such beauty, wars are fought. With such power, wars are won.
Revealed in an article by Brian David-Marshall on DailyMTG.com, Gilded Lotus was originally printed in "Mirrodin."
There are a lot of amazing
creatures running around in that have a casting cost of eight mana: Avacyn, Angel of Hope,Griselbrand, Liege of the Tangle, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger. Gilded Lotus can help you cast them on turn six or sooner.
Unlike Somberwald Sage, Gilded Lotus doesn't restrict you to casting just creatures. That means you'll be able to play Army of the Damned and massive XX spells like Bonfire of the Damned and Entreat the Angels.
Another idea is to throw Gilded Lotus into any deck seeking to abuse Nicol Bolas or the wacky new red rare Worldfire.
