@revengeanceful I dunno if that works so great because it is "this turn." If you play land, mox, stormcaster...pass, that's terrible. unless you are following up with lotus or sapphire, you're likely not casting anything the opponent cares about anyway in that same turn.
That is the scenario I was thinking. It’s clearly a risky scenario because if you don’t have Sapphire or Lotus to follow it up with it’s terrible as you pointed out, but you wouldn’t take that line unless you had the follow up...or would you? That’s the mind game I enjoy about it.
In addition to everything else that's been mentioned, I love the pressure this puts on your opponent if you lead on something like "Land, Mox, Stormcaller". Can they really afford to not counter it if they have one? Maybe you're bluffing, maybe you're not, but if you're not it's really just game over on the spot.
