Also Maze untaps the creature. Sometimes you want that 'Goyf to stay tapped when you swing next turn.

For some reason, I feel like Kher Keep and Academy Ruins should be on that list, and Teferi's Isle shouldn't be on it... though one could argue that ruins is a "timeshifted" volrath's stronghold and kher keep is a new Kor Haven.

Amazing card. Reusable, one sided combat trick that allows you to either let a fatty through or gang-block it without fear of your creatures dying.

Given that you have two other mana sources, this is a good response to aggro in white control decks.
It can prevent a lot of trouble against a big single threat if you don't have the accordant removal spell yet, e.g. against Goblin Piledriver, Tarmogoyf or Psychatog.
Being a land and therefore colorless, you won't even have to bother with creatures with protection from white.
Regrettably it only produces colorless mana, but this shouldn't be the biggest problem.

i use this in my zubera 5colored deck and it never betrays me. I have one in my blue/white one and i love it! Just, it's a pity it's "legendary"...so i cannot stop 4 creatures per turn! eheheh

Once helped me to gain a lot of time, during a multiplayer game turned in a 3-VS-me... (however I lost...)
I don't like such passive strategy, but with this you can block and still deal combat damage to the attacking creature!

Trivia: this legendary land is a part of a mega-mega-cycle of legendary lands, each of them appearing in a different block:
Mirage: Teferi's Isle
Tempest: Volrath's Stronghold
Urza's Saga: Yavimaya Hollow
Mercadian Masques: Kor Haven
Invasion: Keldon Necropolis

This seems to be a very useful land, especially in Mono White.

Mono white control.

Strictly worse than Maze.

Ah, I stand corrected. I just the idea of being able to pull your own creatures back from the fray.

Strictly as good as Maze, but without the Vorthos-tastic Amazingness. (Check out the Judge Promo- it has strictly better art :)

Haven is Good, but not Cool. 4.7 stars out of 5. Maze gets 5. That's just the way it is.
