Agreed, but I love the flavor text.

I prefer Library of Leng, 'cause it protects from discard.

@beefrocks: I agree with chinkeeyong.

And reliquary tower also isn't, well, an artifact. It's a land.

Did you even look at the card first?

Actually, Reliquary Tower would not always trump this.
I'm thinking Storm decks, artifact-manipulation decks, etc.
Sure, the Tower is a land, which protects it from most removal,
But you can't say to always pick the tower over this.

Even if Reliquary Tower was made back when artifacts didn't work while tapped, which is obviously wasn't just for the border it has by itself, it isn't an artifact. So it really wouldn't care.

@chinkeeyong: You mean after the SIXTH Edition rules changes (see http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/daily/bb15). Some of us still tapped our 4th Edition Winter Orbs to great effect, thankyouverymuch.

I personally like this better than reliquary tower. Reliquary tower prevents you from playing a land that gives you colored mana for that turn.
