'Journey Into Nyx' preview week: 'Temple of Malady'

Overgrown Tomb has a friend again.
Wizards of the Coast

Welcome to night three of the "Journey Into Nyx" previews on There is no particular order to the previews on the "Magic: The Gathering" site and there is no particular order here as well. With that in mind, here is the next card:

Temple of Malady - Rare - Land - Temple of Malady enters the battlefield tapped. When Temple of Malady enters the battlefield, scry 1. Tap: Add U or R to your mana pool.

Ever since "Woodland Cemetery" rotated out of Standard, "Overgrown Tomb" has felt like it's been missing a friend. Enter the "Temple of Malady." While the land still comes into play tapped, the added scry ability will be a welcomed addition.

The Temple will be great to have because of the rise of "Abrupt Decay" in Standard. The card is gaining a lot of popularity because of its many uses. It can easily take care of early aggro and it's one of the best solutions to "Detention Sphere" for black and green mages.

Additionally, with BG dredge being a thing in Standard as well, the "Temple of Malady" will see play in that deck as well. Overall, the Temple will definitely see plenty of play in constructed. With the anticipation of the BG god, it may end up surpassing the UR Temple for being the most sought after in Nyx.

Which Temple do you think will be the more popular of the two? Epiphany or Malady? Let us know in the comments below.

"Journey Into Nyx" hits stores on May 2. Prerelease events will be held the weekend of April 26 and 27. It will then be released online May 12. Finally, Game Day events will be held the weekend of May 24 and 25.
