This works well in a LD-deck, because you can force them to use their mana during their turn so that they cannot response to your LD or bounce spells.

Combined with mana acceleration, this is a pretty good soft lock.

The ultimate griefer card.

He could in response draw all the mana from his lands, which would last until the end of his upkeep. So yes, he can play spells, but only at instant speed, or if he drops a land later in his main phase.

I am putting one of these into my Plow Under tempo deck. Should be effective when I do draw it.

Look, it's the anti-Candelabra of Tawnos!

This is super powerful.
Not only does it lock out their mana,
it can actually make crap cards like Psychic Venom and Kudzu (slightly) useful.

Very cool artifact- I'm surprised this wasn't in Planar Chaos,
given how it's a "twisted" Candelabra.

Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, lock your opponent down.

My friend uses this in his Elf deck...
Need I remind you they get mana like crazy???

I have a question regarding this card. If I use this card during my opponet's upkeep step and tap his mana, can he play a spell before my ability resolves?

Keeps opponent from playing Storm Crow, and looks like it might get a place in my Rhystic cycle/ Psychic Venom/Contaminated Ground/Pooling Venom deck.
