Currently both UG and UB are looking to use canisters. I figured we could distinguish those by trying to encourage Green canisters to untap lands and Black canisters to untap non-lands. So I am looking for a common tap ability that feels stronger if you can activate it twice in a turn. In this case it is stronger because you don't have to double pay the "cost" of setting up the condition that lets you activate it. Does this feel common? Is there a better common, repeatable, ability that you would spend a canister to use an extra time?

T: Put a counter on me

Whenever I become untapped, +1/+1 UEOT

Possible uncommon

Or possibly just a counter each time

Black Green is supposed to care about Sacrifice triggers, which obviously canisters can help with. While Blue/Green is the more direct ramp/tap effects color.

Unless you have a better idea for UB, that archetype just says canisters. That is why I am making a card for the UB deck that uses canisters, and why I am suggesting a possible way to make UB feel different from UG while still using many of the same Blue cards.

Well, the {u}{b} archetype is still undecided, actually. It could be Canisters, but we're not sure.

I do like the idea you propose, though, Jackal. {u}{g} is canister ramp, while {u}{b} is canister on permanents. The problem is... black doesn't get any canisters. So it makes it very difficult to make {u}{b} a canister archetype.

Can Black get canisters? Or did we decide that only colors that can "Untap target creature" get canisters?
