Another balanced card out of Urza's block . . .

I love this guy, he can bring out your entire hand by one tap.

Hahaha, and this card is acceptable how? That's just silly...but that's Urza's _____ for you.

It's not as unfair as you'd think. Not only do you need this card, but you also have to have had it on the board for a whole turn to get over the summoning sickness. Then, you need to get a Voltaic Construct down too. Additionally, you still need at least 2 artifacts in your hand AND some way of using the mana. So you're talking a pretty card-intensive combo there!
To be fair, I use this combo in a Memnarch Control deck, and it's awesome when it goes off (still need blue mana though) and you take your opponents side of the board for yourself. It can work, but I assure you, keeping one of these alive long enough to fire it off is not so simple.

After playing with this card in an UrzaTron deck with huge artifacts, this card is absolutely a joke.
Once it hits the table and is used, the amount of mana he generates is SO out-of-balance with the game of Magic, I'm shocked any Magic designer couldn't see this during the design phase, much less the playtesting phase.

If this card simply generated ONE mana per card revealed, he STILL would be broken, but it would be workable, and at least comparable to the other absurd mana-generating creatures and land (Tolarian Academy, Rofollos, and Gaea's Cradle excepted).

pff, and people think tolarian academy is broken.

{T} him, then reveal the cards you were going to cast anyways! Seriously though, ridiculous mana acceleration at it's best...
