Locus is a nonbasic land type used for cards that depict mana rich observing posts on Mirrodin.

Description[edit | edit source]

The first card to bear the type was Cloudpost in Mirrodin. It adds {C} for each Locus on the battlefield. Because multiple Loci looked inherently broken, R&D was hesitant to create additional ones.[1] However, with the printing of Glimmerpost in Scars of Mirrodin deckbuilders were gifted a second playset of Loci and, alongside the landcopying Vesuva from Time Spiral could play up to twelve in one deck. Each copy would increase the amount of mana generated by Cloudpost.[2]

Storyline[edit | edit source]

Created by Memnarch to observe his imported creatures, they were later taken over by the Praetors of New Phyrexia.
