And with the other urborg out it is a swamp :P

the abilities are all mediocre, but it's certainly better than a swamp. I kinda like the idea, have a small drawback (legendary) in exchange for a small benefit (no swampwalk for you!....and first strike)

How are people rating the other Legends legendary lands above Karakas? That one is the best. Having it out effectively stops your opponent from playing any legendary creatures and/or it can save yours. And have you never heard of Mangara of Corondor? Game over. There's a reason Karakas costs like 20 times more than the rest of them.

Drop it into a Horobi, Death's Wail EDH deck.

Why not use one of these in every deck with black? It's better than a basic Swamp unless you need basic Swamps in your deck.

This has always been useful in black weenie. First strike is common in legacy in white weenie decks. Funeral Charm is also played to give creatures swampwalk.. like Swampwalking a Nantuko Shade to the face.. its nice to know that in the mirror you have an added chance of stopping swampwalking beatsticks from colliding into you

@Tommy9898 That doesn't work. Once the creature has done it's damage, it's done.

Tolaria: it's an island in most situations
Pendelhaven: Amazing in token decks
karakas: maybe useful in some kamigawa decks, otherwise only for EDH
Hammerheim: landwalk isn't common in main deck, but not a bad card
Urborg: Mono black loves it, but first strike isn't instantly destructive to anything but red burn, which would probably not want to splash black so it can ball lightning on T3

This is how I would rank the lands in this cycle: Pendelhaven, Urborg, Karakas, Hammerheim, Tolaria.

This card is good, but it hurt significantly by the last ruling. Thematically, it makes no sense that it doesn't remove the First Strike part of Double Strike. I doesn't drastically increase its power level, but makes it less and less useful against newer cards.
