I run this, Cabal Coffers, Nirkana Revenant, Caged Sun, and Gauntlet of Power in my mono-black EDH deck.

Why go crazy just once?

Nearly every card in Time Spiral block was a throwback to at least one previously printed card.

This card references Cabal Coffers and is part of the "Magus" super cycle of rare creatures. The cards in Planar Chaos all reference one of the most powerful lands ever; the others are Magus of the Bazaar, Magus of the Tabernacle, Magus of the Arena, and Magus of the Library.

The Time Spiral part of the cycle focuses on powerful artifacts: Magus of the Candelabra, Magus of the Disk, Magus of the Mirror, Magus of the Jar, and Magus of the Scroll. The Future Sight part of the cycle focuses on powerful enchantments: Magus of the Moat, Magus of the Future, Magus of the Abyss, Magu... (see all)

Make him too small and he looks a lot like Rofellos.

Why is this rated so low? It will hold up pretty well for non-destruction based removal (Lightning Bolt) and gets nice mana. Turn 6 you're looking at 8 mana (+2 yessss), turn 7, 10, turn 8, 12. Non-mono black it's pretty bad, but in mono black, it can really ramp the mana.

Magus of the coffers, Pestilence & Magebane Armor = Fun, fun, fun XD
Add Everlasting Torment for those pesky INDESTRUCTABLEs and life gaining decks..

Cabal coffers but uglier

creature form of cabal coffers. They should've made it 3CMC and a 2/2.

When you have a 4/4 for 5 out, you're probably not too worried about further mana acceleration. Might be good for powering finishers like Consume Spirit, though.

Nirvana Reverant is better.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
