And multicolor deck should never be without a full set of these. Coming into play tapped is an entirely acceptable tradeoff for having huge versatility (and cool pictures).

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

Tri color fixing without an excess mana requirement is pure awesomeness. Pair with garruk to have him untap the land after you play it, making it available first turn it comes into play. A magus of the candelabra and a land enchanted with fertile ground can also tap/untap this land plus the original one infi number of times.. not really sure why they reprinted that card actually.

So the upgrade on a castle is ruins. Go figure. And yes it's better than Obelisk of Grixis, you don't have to pay 3 mana to play it.

Strictly better than obelisk of grixis?

Awesome art, very good card. This is an immediate 4 of in any grixis color deck.

magus of candelabra is not anywhere near as broken as you think it is. It taps, meaning it's a one use thing.

A lot of people make that mistake, actually. It's sad. You'd think people would understand what it meant to use a tap ability

Hm... I can see this, and all the other Tri colored lands being in a 5 color deck, AND have the one card that untaps cards that come into play tapped... what was that cards name again? xD Signit of Vitality or something?
