The candelabra has ALWAYS tapped to activate. "Mono Artifact" means that you tap it. Granted, not everyone knows this, but it holds true anyway.

Heh, I remember when I first started playing magic and a guy had this in his special "no trades" binder, and I didn't understand why it was so good.

And now it's made a return in High Tide decks. For the people who can afford it, anyway.

Remember, its a mono artifact so the oracle text is right, you have to have something to untap this if you want to use it more than once.

That being said, this card rocks with Urza's lands or locus.

Not good in a mana-less deck. In otherwords, not good in Yu-Gi-Oh!
That's about it, though. I would argue this should even be considered good in Pokemon.
Energy cards anyone?

This used to be one of the most dollar-efficient ways to break the game in half. A little sad what happened there. Completely predictable, of course, but sad all the same.

Looks like the most dollar-efficient card in Magic is now...Yawgmoth's Will?

Right. I'm going to break down and learn about this whole 'graveyard shenanikers' thing. Right in time for Innistrad, too! :)

I love this card. I just bought it online, and it is so much better than the Magus of Candelabra. Using it the turn you play it, plus not having to worry about your opponent killing it nearly as much makes a huge difference. With this, bounce lands, Cloudposts, Vesuva, etc, you can ramp up to 10+ mana on turn three. It would be even more ridiculous in an artifact deck with Tolarian Academy. Such a great card.

Until I read that you have to tap it I was like WTF Ò_ó Utopia Sprawl and infinite mana??

still an excellent card

Like Ashnod's Altar, this artifact is a key to infinite combos and, if an opponent ever drops it, you should think about getting rid of it sooner than later. I've learned the hard way.
It's not quite so dangerous in the early stages of a game though.
It's also a card with which you can abuse Library of Alexandria, responding to your own extra card draw with the Candelabra's ability, perhaps followed with Voltaic Key untapping the Candelabra to do it again.

You use it on dual lands

Not to mention the Craddle and the Academy...

Heh. Tolarian Academy?? Gaea's Cradle?? Serra's Sanctum?? Possibilites are infinite.

Fun with Koth of the Hammer for extra pinging as well.
