In a UR control deck it COULD have it's uses. Have a creature with an absurd mana cost in play, play this, tap all the other lands you got, and Banefire ftw.

If just this would produce blue mana or mana of the creature's color instead, it would be so awesome.

Anyways, this is still a pretty decent mana accel with creatures that can be cast for free or with an alternate cost, like Skyshroud Cutter, Vine Dryad or Allosaurus Rider. 4 or 7 on turn one doesn't sound too shabby. Too bad Ulamog's Crusher costs 8 mana :P
Just hope that the spell you're going to cast for that won't get countered, otherwise your hand is pretty much empty and you're left with almost nothing :D

Play Egotist face down. Flip him over. Next turn, Energy Tap for 8.

Obiously non of you young 'uns have been around to play this with Draco, Torrent of Fire, and Fireball. Draco is easy third turn with Prismatic Omen and green mana ramp. Pow.

I think this is really cool, can be an uber dark ritual

@Mode: Ulamog's Crusher is easily played with a little help from this and its brother, Hand of Emrakul. ;)

I have a silly casual deck with this card and Spire Golem. (I'm surprised no one's mentioned him yet.) It functions sort of like a bad control deck with a Treasure Mage toolbox, but occasionally it does silly things like resolving a turn-4 Sundering Titan with Remand backup.

Using CREATURES to get MANA? What color is this, you think? BLUE? OF COURSE!!!

Yeah, they really need to do a reprint of this in green. Makes so much more sense.

@ Technetium

that's really what he's here for. I mean, any CMC matters-ALL HAIL THE GREAT LORD EGOTIST

Looks like it might have some serious synergy with the Eldrazi. They're all really expensive and colorless. Get at least one into play, take Ulamog's Crusher, for instance. Tap him down with this and get 8, practically for free. Use that as a considerable launching pad into another huge Eldrazi threat.
