Ok, this is a sick double-land play. We all know you can't play multiple lands each turn. Well, how about Prototype Portal? drop a free land each turn as it has CMC = 0. Multiple portals = multiple bonus lands.

Wizards had no idea the insanity unleashed by this seemingly innocent thing.

Flavorwise, these made a lot of sense. I shouldn't have to mention Mirrodin's artifact theme. I mean, all of Mirrodin is metal. So why wouldn't it's lands be seen as artifacts? It was mechanically that they screwed up. The problem is that MTG is one part game and one part story (flavor). These helped tell the story, but in combination with the other cards of the set, branded it as MTG's most broken set.

I don't think that these are all that bad on their own. I mean, they have their own weaknesses (Shatter-able for 1Red). It was affinity that was the f*ck up. Affinity for artifacts on Mirrodin would have been like affinity for land on Zendikar. I think Ravanica's Convoke ability was well done. But sadly, it suffered from the aftershock of Mirrodin (as did many sets) and was never pushed to the limits it could have on fear of repeating history.

Who'd have guessed just how Broken a basic land could be made artifact.

When you think about it, there was nothing smart at all about the artifact lands. Terrible Idea.

First improvement you should make to your Tezzeret deck? (Or second - after adding in any other copies of Tezzeret the Seeker you have.) Swap out three Islands for three more copies of this artifact land.

Yup. Tezzeret, the new Garruk.

Tezzeret's deck should have included more than one of these.

It is funny to use with Master Transmuter.
