Gorgeous art, and really neat mana-fixing.
I really hope they make a cycle of these in the near future. Maybe substituting for the Glacial Fortress/Sunpetal Grove/Rootbound Crag/Dragonskull Summit/Drowned Catacomb cycle in the next core set?

This and Grove of the Burnwillows need to have full cycles the day before yesterday.

The main downside with this card is that it doesn't go well in a deck that features many of the other UW duals (aside from Tundra and Hallowed Fountain). If you start the turn with this, a Mystic Gate, and an Adarkar Wastes, it just taps for colorless. Still, those other lands can get the mana you need, so it's not a total loss.

@Calver, a plains island can tap for U or W, no strings attached. You'd be reprinting the old, 'true' dual lands. This is much more interesting, but probably still too powerful.

@Tapir, while I appreciate you trying to show how requiring several mana payments makes this better than Mystic Gate (I agree), that scenario's not very well constructed. I'd just put the U into the Mystic Gate to provide UW, play Spell Pierce. Then if they play the Goblin Guide in the first main phase you can still Swords it, and if they wait till second main when the W is no longer in your pool the haste is irrelevant and you swords it next turn.

Technically not STRICTLY better than mystic gate, on account of the possibility that your one island is tapped for whatever reason. But yeah, mystic gate is better. This dual and its assumed cycle would be awesome in Theros.

Please, for the love of gods (pun intended), have this in Theros. Maybe the allied ones first then the enemy cycle for Born of the Gods. Very probable because MaRo said there would be one Future Sight card, and this does not have its own cycle yet and it would be amazing with shocklands. Wizards! Hear our pleas!

Great effect, too. Get whichever color of mana you DON'T have!
