Urza's Mine, Urza's Tower, and Urza's Power Plant are NOT basic lands. I don't know who told you they were, but that's a big inaccuracy. For whatever reason some editions on the gatherer show the rarity as "Basic Land" rather than "Common" "Uncommon", but they are still non-basic lands.

As for the card, I think it's powerful, especially for the cost, but there's a chance it wouldn't accomplish much. Granted, I only play with friends and we don't use too many special lands (except one that loves Urzatron + Locus lands). For something fun you could run Rainbow Vale, let's you throw out a little bonus and you can mess with/troll certain people (especially with this on an Isochron Scepter).

I think that you are missing the point. Price of Progress is well-designed because it hoses cards which are otherwise plain better than basic lands, thus making using basic lands a viable way to play the game rather than simply an inferior tactic to using nonbasics. Also, although none of the cards you listed are as expensive as Alpha lands, many of them are still really expensive (fetchlands, Ravnica shocklands, etc.). In addition, keep in mind that a land does not have to be worth 100 dollars or more for it to be way too expensive. Even if a good nonbasic only costs five dollars, that means that if you want to make your deck as good as possible, you have to spend more than 50 dollars on lands alone. Most people don't want to do that.

Flavor text is perfect. And this is very annoying against 5-coloured or artifact deck, that always play something else than basic lands.

Like I said on the original printing, this is what gives legacy Burn decks the upper hand against Affinity ^_^

Well this card has certainly gotten better.

Powerful. Looks great in the new frame and in foil. Man, I miss some of Ferguson's art. This card kicks serious ass in Legacy... say, is it just me, or is Wizards actually reprinting GOOD cards lately?!

Barbarian ring energizes with this, I guess, cause you can sac it... Personally, not a big fan, but I love the flavor. :)

Good. Not always the best, but certainly has it's good situations.

This isn't overpowered. It's good design. It's a killer if your opponent is playing all nonbasics, but that'll only happen if they spend way too much money on their cards. Cards like this give budget players a chance against the rich, keeping the game accessible to everyone.

Against the people I usually play against this is gonna do squat. Against super competitive decks people poor lots of money into: FEEL THE PAIN SUCKERS!(well if i owned any and ever played against those kinds of decks/people/formats.)
