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

The card references the cycle of lands referred to by players as the "Urzatron" (Urza's Tower, Urza's Mine, and Urza's Power Plant) which produced significant amounts of mana when all were in play. Specifically, one of each would provide a total of 7 colorless mana, exactly the amount to activate this land's ability.

The card also references Mishra's Factory which actually turns into an assembly worker. Urza and Mishra were the central characters in Magic's first storyline during Antiquities; they were rival brothers, both artificers, and their conflict engulfed the entire plane of Dominaria. Tocasia, who is quoted in the flavor text, was their mentor.

What's up with the Urza land type that does nothing?

A pretty funny card - there's an Assembly-Worker artifact creature already in the same set, and this card is obviously a nod towards Mishra's Factory.

Amazing land. I like it better than Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree in any deck.

Not so bad. Activation cost is high, but in some decks a free, repeatable token generator is extremely valuable.

Note that if you have Urza's Mine, Tower and Power Plant in play, you can tap all three for a combined 7 mana. Wonder why...
