Shame, because the art is gorgeous.

Gem of Becoming. Probably arguably better than Manalith because of many lands that have basic types but aren't basics. there's at least 25 of them, but maybe more:

ABU Dual Land Cycle, which is OK

Ravnica Shock Cycle, which I like more for Art, Balance, Flavor, and Synergies: (especially in Green White, if you are trying to get your life total to a specific number, Shocking yourself and then gaining life is more reliable than large swings of life in Black with lifelink and costs)
-Basically I argue 'More Text = More Fun if the text actually does something relevant and they aren't just being wordy for something simple'.

And there are some cards in Shadowmoor that have only one type that are fetchable with the Gem, like Moonring Island.

Gem can get you quite a lot of value, and I almost wish there was a powerful artifact like it but different that went for another set of lands, but then people would want a cycle, and it isn't something we ne... (see all)

Although, the art on Manalith is nothing to scoff at either.

If your only running those three colors, this is equal to manalith, baring unique situations where you would need other colors because of something an opponent does.

Also you could run alongside manalith.
