Each Time Spiral card was an homage to at least one previously printed card.

This card is part of a cycle of lands referencing the old strorage lands, like Fallen Empires's Sand Silos and Mercadian Masques's Fountain of Cho.

Lands like this need to be treated as spells and not lands when making decks, as they can slow you down significantly in the first few turns where you really need that colored mana.

I wouldn't say they're slow 'cos they can produce 1 mana on their own (some storage lands can't ^^) and they can really create a whole lot of mana for spells with x or somethin' - I used a hell of a lot of mana to play Psychic Drain once. Was fun! :D

Not so slow when you're proliferating. Use with Inexorable Tide, Viral Drake, Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, and/or Throne of Geth. And that's just the re-usable stuff. There are several instants and sorceries in blue/black as well.

I never liked this cycle of dual lands, they're so slow.

@ Missle_Penguin don't you mean Subterranean Hangar with Saprazzan Cove?

Between all storage lands, this cycle is the most powerful, I think. It comes into field untapped, and can tap for {1}. Yes, it requires actually 2 mana to put a counter on it, but I think that it's a little price to pay, in order to be able to put counters since the beginning, instead of wait for a whole turn like the old lands... Moreover, you can pay {1} from any land to get mana from this, and still be able to tap to add a counter afterward...

My Izzet Commander deck need the enemy-color version of this land!
