It reads:
Target player activates a mana ability of each land he or she controls. Then put all mana from that player's mana pool into yours.

If you respond by tapping all your lands in response the mana goes to the mana pool. Which will then be drained afterwards.

The only option you have is if you have lands that can produce mana in other ways, such as either Green or White mana. You decide whether to tap it for either colour, but bottom line is that the mana will go to the caster of the spell


Then nothing.
Dark Depths doesn't have a mana ability which is what Drain Power checks for. It doesn't tap.

It drains your opponent's mana pool either way, which is the main purpose of the card. You can no longer effectively do anything until your next turn, and he has a nice mana boost. I'm still looking for a set of these D:

it was made when mana burn was still in effect. plus, the errata says u activate a mana ability of every land, while the text says tap all lands...say u have a land, (dark depths for example) that doesnt have a mana ability? what then wizards?

This card is now pretty useless...You play this, I respond by tapping all of my lands...Even before M10 this went largely unplayed...

Sweet, they fixed it. "Then put all mana from that player's mana pool into yours."

For a while the Oracle wording brutally neutered this card. This sentence restores its functionality.

This is solid Blue anti-Blue. They either waste a counter on this, or they lose the ability to counter whatever is coming next. Well, aside from their artifact-producing mana, which legacy/vintage blue often has plenty of.
