There's a new Party mechanic, which I suspect is part of the leadup to the Forgotten Realms set

I've found the next thing that'll break Standard: double-faced pseudobasic lands. You choose which one it is as you play it, and they don't even enter tapped.

Zendikar Rising, weird lands 

@DialMforMara Given that standard is losing ten shocklands while only gaining six of these, I'm less worried about these in particular than I am about giving Uro decks a pile of landfall triggers.

@SliverQueen don't get me wrong, I'm excited to use these in Commander (also Ariel needs them). I'm just very used to Standard being a trash fire and don't think Uro is the only place they'll be a problem.

@DialMforMara @SliverQueen These are just dual lands, they're not broken? It's kind of like a fetch land that can only get one of two basics(but they're not basic ofc nor do they have a subtype), which is not super strong, just good as a dual for aggro, so it's a bit like Khans where we lost shocks and got fetches - playable but nothing to write home abt. These are far below the shocklands we are losing.
Is standard still going to be a trash fire anyways? Most likely.
