This is a great fetching device when combined with the right cards!

Try this one with Amulet of Vigor. This allows you fetching a basic land each turn for 1.
If you have two (or more) Amulets, you can even do it for free (or even produce mana)!

You can use Ruin Ghost to flicker this land after activating it, this will prevent the bounce.
It will even allow another use if you have Amulet of Vigor in play.

Exploration or cards like Sakura-Tribe Scout can also help getting more than just the Gaciers onto the battlefield each turn.

@LeoKula: This is very near being a staple in EDH.

@Master-Crimson: The effects of multiple Amulet of Vigors is cúmulative. Amulet of Vigor does not make the card enter the battlefield untapped but rather untaps it when it enters the battlefield tapped. Thus if you have two you can tap it in response to the trigger from the second one.

Fun Fact: Inquest Magazine rated this card a 2 out of 5 stars when the set was released. All it did was go on to win pro events and become a staple of any control deck at the time. The next issue after Worlds '97 it went up to a 5 out of 5 stars.

My logic in Azusa, Lost but Seeking EDH:
Hmm... Lets use Thawing Glaciers to search for a Snow-Covered Forest. But then I realize that there is something up with that...
4.5/5 - EDH Staple

I love this card for multiplayer. It ramps up the mana (slowly.. but surely!) and helps you top deck less land.

Can't wait to use these in a landfall deck :)

Ice Age Block can thin it fairly well though...

With Nature's Chosen on a White creature you can search the turn it comes into play, and still use the creature for other things

Juniper Order Druid, Elder Druid or the talisman's could be used as well(Nacre Talisman, Malachite Talisman, etc.) but Nature's Chosen on a white creature is probably best.

I could easily see this being banned if it were part of Zendikar block, but for it to be banned from Ice Age block constructed seems a little surprising... there, it thins the deck, that's about it.

I really wish this wasn't on the Wizards no-reprint list... and even though it is, I hope they find a way to make a functional reprint for a slightly altered cost... like say an artifact that does the same thing and costs 0 mana to cast... or a land that does the same thing but costs 2 to activate... or comes into play tapped itself.

Since Vintage and Legacy are so fast, this is a card that is doomed to a $5 price tag and occasional casual play.

Seedstoner Heiraphant and this

X: Put X lands into play from your deck.

One of my favorite lands. I find it mostly useful not because it fetched color, but because it ensures you will continue to get land. If you draw your basic land, play that. It not, play a glacier. Sweet. Mode mentioned Amulet of Vigor which is a fantastic addition. Also try some "double land" from the Ravnica block. It brings a smile to my face to pop a glacier already in play, then drop an Izzet Boilerworks and return it to my hand right then. Again... Sweet.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
