The flavor here makes me cry. All in all, this fifteen card cycle makes up 15 of the 25 or so cards I enjoy most in this game. 5 stars for that alone.

You can't untap a land that has trace on it, trace gives the land shroud.

@ steepommel,
The benefit in the beginning of the game is mediocre, for sure, but when you have two lands with enchants on them, that's two more mana, and so on until you get your gaea's cradle out. It's not a phenomenal creature, and is certainly not a bird of paradise, but a 1 drop that's a 1/2 with mana accel is pretty damn potent creature.

Best served with Sasaya's Essence....Supposing you have the deck to flip it.

LOL. I laugh at all you people going about this card all wrong. Just using this card with the Ravnica Dual Lands is already great as it is. However, the potential of this card to produce infinite mana is really true, you are all just going about it wrong. The Freed from the Real steelpommel mentioned is one answer, but there are other less risky methods...

Candelabra of Tawnos plus Urzatron is probably the most broken thing Vorthos will ever actually play.

This card likes the Ravnica bouncelands...

Yeah, he helps cards like Overgrowth,Trace of Abundance, Wake Thrasher, and practically every non-basic land.

Every card in Time Spiral was a throwback to at least one previously printed card.

This card references Candelabra of Tawnos and is part of the "Magus" super cycle of rare creatures. The cards in Time Spiral all reference one of the most powerful artifacts ever; the others are Magus of the Disk, Magus of the Mirror, Magus of the Jar, and Magus of the Scroll.

The Planar Chaos part of the cycle focuses on powerful lands: Magus of the Tabernacle, Magus of the Bazaar, Magus of the Coffers, Magus of the Arena, and Magus of the Library. The Future Sight part of the cycle focuses on powerful enchantments: Magus of the Moat, Magus of the Future, Magus of the Abyss, Magus of the ... (see all)

I don't understand, if you have a enchant land or whatever give off 2 mana you still have to tap magus. So one mana to untap magnus would give you three mana. at the resolve...not infinite. Or can you untap/tap land as much as you please?

Spell this out for me please

What I assume is say for instant you have wild growth giving you 2 mana for one tap.....you tap that 2 mana and pay 1 and tap magus , then you can untap that land again to tap for another 2 giving 3 in total, because you can't tap magus again. While good it's not the two card infinate set you would need a creature/spell that untaps magus and a multiple mana producer to make infinite combo, or use this for a multiple color deck to untap specific lands

Then again I could be blatantly wrong not sure.

update....yeah I see now. It isn't the infinite mana spewer some of these guys are saying unless you throw in a freed from the real and a double mana. Then that is the infinite loop
