The Ancient Byzantine Wisdom staff (Grell) is very pleased usher in the fourth day of land week. Tomorrow, because of Land Friday, ABW will showcase two lands. Saturday and Sunday we'll present the winner of the mechanic search's round three. This is, understandably, too exciting. So today's card should help bore you back to normal.
Set one in a block - reintroduce poison counters. Have a few good cards that work well together so that poison quickly becomes a dominant standard deck.
Set two - Print Sun-Scorched Waste. Watch as poison suffers.
Set three - Print a 3-mana land destruction spell that gives your opponent a poison counter. Party.
Sun-Scorched Waste is a flavor disaster. I can think of no reason why a blighted snowscape (good card name) would have anything at all to do with preventing poisoning.
