"Magic: the Gathering" players can now get their hands on a new promotional alternate art foil Reliquary Tower at "Friday Night Magic" events. Distributed this weekend during FNM on Feb. 1, 2013, Reliquary Tower is a land that alters one of the game's most fundamental rules: Your hand size.
You have no maximum hand size.
Tap: Add 1 to your mana pool.
Once guarded by the Knights of the Reliquary, the tower stands now protected only by its own remoteness, its dusty treasures open to plunder by anyone.
Recently reprinted in "M13," Reliquary Tower originally made its debut in "Conflux." Because Reliquary Tower is a land it doesn't cost anything to cast and your opponent can't Negate it like Spellbook or Library of Leng.
Reliquary Tower works best in decks that draw lots of cards. It's perfect if you don't want to discard the massive number of cards you'll gain from a large Sphinx's Revelation or Prime Speaker Zegana.
Reliquary Tower can be a lot of fun in Commander, where there's many more cards for it to interact with. If you've managed to acquire a fistful of cards in your hand you'll be able to gain a superfluous amount of life with Sword of War and Peace or attack with a gigantic Overbeing of Myth.
