Forms an efficient combo with Power Surge, forcing a bad situation onto players...

By far the best art it ever had.

Power Surge is not at all pointless, even with the lack of Mana Burn. You can either take a bunch of damage, or not have mana for the turn. It's especially devestating given that it is before you draw your card for the turn.

Unfortunately, Power Surge has been made all but pointless since they got rid of mana burn. This card is a decent grinder on its own, though.

@Arglypuff: Please note, while Power Surge damages at the beginning of the upkeep, the land count is at the beginning of the turn. I.e., before untap. With mana burn gone now, if an opponent has Power Surge, just tap all your lands before the end of the turn before yours, thereby having no untapped land at the beginning of your turn, then untap them all, take no damage, draw your card, gtg.

Addendum: Of course, having both out kind of makes that a moot point - damage will be done 1 way or the other.

Note the ABU version of this card is more powerful than later printings, as this card only checks to see if a land is tapped. It does not care if the land was tapped to draw mana, and it does not care if the land was tapped by an external effect (e.g., Twiddle).
