One of the few good cards from The Dark. Exile some weenies early on, and you've got a good source of colorless mana.

Use creature control like Preacher and remove your opponents stuff. :)

Useful in various nutty decks, and funny when you eat opposing creatures that have been stolen.

Let it be noted that the charge counters remain on City of Shadows, even if you use it's 2nd ability.

Current oracle wording eliminates the word "sacrifice" for no good reason. Other cards (Dragon Appeasement, Savra, Queen of the Golgari, & Furnace Celebration) do care if you sacrifice creatures, so this represents a functional change to the card akin to the power level errata of yesteryear that is anathema to modern policy.

Overall just a beast of a card. Great with colorless token generation...or those myr that retrieve one another.

I use this with Manipulation Chamber.
I block their attacks with their own creatures and exile them before EOT.

This card is absolutely a masterpiece of flavor (name, abilities, artwork).
With proliferate is really really amazing.
Nice combo with Chamber of Manipulation, but it costs discarding a card.
The exile clause prevents crazy combos with Nether Traitor, Endless ***roaches or similar, and is a drawback; however, the fact that counters remain on the land after use makes it powreful!

Wow... randomly traded for this today for my Maelstrom Wanderer EDH deck because I thought it looked cool. Just played my deck, and the ability to pop my general back to the command zone at will (and ramp while doing it is insane).
