This thing is evil and dishonorable, and I hate it, and it has won me many games.

I have to give this a 5, only because it has so many potential combos and devastating uses. Its cost is also a big factor, as potentially getting this out in a single turn is pretty insane.

Combo with the trusty Sol Ring on turn 1 to get an immediate 2 mana advantage

Oh this card brought many tears of laughter to my eyes, while seeing tears of dispear in my opponents.

Card caption: "What's that Yogi?"

"The Chaos Orbs cold distant Girlfriend Boo-boo"

In the wake of Wizards deciding to change Winter Orb's oracle text, I just want everybody to know that at one point this card read thusly, "As long as Winter Orb is untapped, players can't untap more than one land during their untap steps."

I am rather disappointed that they decided to make this card much worse and take away a fun interaction that people have played around with for years.

Bad job with the oracle text in my opinion. This was intended not to work while tapped.

Too bad the tabernacle costs so much :(

As I saw this card, I decided to insert it in my 1-CMC creature deck, with creatures like Scute Mob and Death's Shadow. It already worked wonderfully before, now it works even better because my opponent usually can't play anything for a few turns while I can play at least one creature a turn.

@P-Slice & BambooNickel: If you want to experiment with tapping Winther Orb to untap your own lands, try using it in the Lodestone Myr deck (along with Genesis Chamber, Howling Mine and Blinkmoth Urn).

Also, @Gaussgoat, awesome combo.

i love this card, i had some tough battles in the past with control players playing these, and i was playing a mono black necrodeck..fun times!

being a huge fan of the classic prison deck, i agree that the changing of winter orb's rulings really hurt the deck, but that didn't totally cripple it! it just made it a little slower, and i believe the deck can still run..
