I don't believe you can, and the reason for that is that while this card has basic land TYPES, it itself is not a basic land. So TM wouldn't let you search for it, but Polluted Delta would

This is a swamp. It may be found with cards that find swamps. It triggers effects based on having a swamp. It is not a basic land. It may not be found with cards that find basic lands. This ruling is explained in similar cards.

It's hard to imagine the deck this would be the MVP of. But in a control deck with a significant amount of black that plans to have the game run long anyway, this could be a decent source of supplementary damage, very slow but uncounterable and easily searched for. I'd run one or two in such a deck.

Swamp is a land type
if it were basic, it would have the basic supertype
this does not

Oh wow, that's why Barbarian Ring and Cursed Scroll were so popular.
2 mana for 3 damage is almost never worth it.

For everybody saying they don't know what this is good in, it's definitely best in Rakdos, Lord of Riots multiplayer EDH. In that scenario, this card is actually: "B, tap: creature spells you cast this turn cost X less to cast, where X is the number of opponents." And two black permanents should never really be an issue.

No, it does not rock in multiplayer. Even with three other players you're paying two mana for three damage, which is almost never worth it, especially in Black where life-stealing is so easy.

EACH opponent! Omg this rocks in multiplayer!

does this count as a basic land? like could i terramorphic expanse this?
@paleopaladin see my agruement is that it IS a basic land because swamp is a basic land. its just no named swamp so you can still only have four of them. i really think it counts as a basic land. to say it doesnt would be to say that swamp is not a basic land type
ya ok enough people seem pretty sure about this so ill go with you guys on it

This seems like it would be at its strongest in a megrim/underworld dreams deck.
