I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite Citadel in the store.

A good staby card for getting the right colour that you want, so long as it's Green, White or Blue, but it's still a great card.

The five tricolor lands of Shards of Alara are direct upgrades of the five tricolor lands of Homelands, with this being an upgrade of Aysen Abbey.

I wouldn't say that these lands are upgrades of Homelands lands like Aysen Abbey. I would say that they are upgrades of the Invasion cycle of dual lands, with Seaside Citadel an upgrade (or a fusion) of both Elfhame Palace and Coastal Tower.

The Homelands lands, while sub-par, did enter the battlefield untapped, and could provide 1 colourless mana on the first turn, something that the Alara tri-lands can't do.

Either way, these lands are quite good. I love the flavour of this particular land.

It's a great card for no other reason than a tri color fixer that you don't have to pay mana for is great for any multi colored deck. The coming into play tapped is a signifigant downside if you need mana and only have this card available, but otherwise including at least 1 in any deck with the relevant colors seems to be straight forward.

I love it, for the same reason as I love the Bant basic lands I mean look at their artwork its awesome and way out of the ordinary for any land bravo wizards, bravo.

All of these tri-color lands are so damn good.

*shakes head*
You forgot about a very important detail: Seaside Citadel can make 3 different colors of mana, but any basic that Evolving Wilds searches up can only make 1.
If you want to play a spell that costs WhiteWhite one turn and a spell that costs 1GreenBlue the next turn, the Citadel helps you with that. Evolving Wilds doesn't.

Pretty tough to argue with a land that taps for 3 colors and whos only drawback is coming into play tapped. Very useful in any tri-color deck and obvious (duh) match for Bant players.

For wisdom's sake, it was built high to gaze on all things. For glory's sake, it was built high as a testament of power. For strength's sake, it was built high to repel all attacks.

Look, it was just built really high, okay?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
