I got these for my cataclysm deck, and I was very disappointed in its performance. I just wanted to have two land coming out of the gate when the board wiper went off, but it seemed like every game that the artifact nature of this card was a liability.

People cry when I drop one of these onto a Prototype Portal in Commander.

It's kind of depressing, seeing what Phyrexia has done to Mirrodin

This card was banned along with the other artifact lands because they made Affinity for Artifacts a far too powerful ability. Rather than banning perfectly fun cards and limiting the block severely, they banned the lands that could in most situations be replaced with basic lands without crippling most decks except for the ones that abused it.

These are limited to a maximum of 4 per deck.

Part of a five card cycle:
Ancient Den <-- You are here.
Seat of the Synod
Vault of Whispers
Great Furnace
Tree of Tales

And the honorable mention for cycle-dom:
Darksteel Citadel

can you have more then 4 of this car in your deck? because it is not a basic land, and what about other cards like Dryad Arbor and Taiga. they both are forests are they limited to 4 also?

do these artifact lands fall under the four only ruling or can i put as many as i want in my deck?

Affinity. Reason not to ever see this again on my opponents deck. OR any other artifact land.
