The original shock land.

Way better than it is given credit. Late in the game when you have some useless creatures sitting around you could get in the last few damage with this. Its colorless damage from a land, hard to counter or prevent. Gets better if you can create creature tokens.

This isn't so bad in a two color or less edh. It fulfills a similar purpose to Miren, the Moaning Well, in that it provides a response to those who would try to destroy or Control Magic your creatures, while giving you a bonus Shock.

- costs 6 mana to activate
- want's you to sac creatures

+ it's a land (not counterable)
+ repeatable direct damage to creatures or players is always great
+ it's damage from a land source. it's colorless, gets around protection and many other things

In short, I was nearly always happy when I had this in play, since it just gave me the option to kill something if I really need to. Once I had it in play with Rings of Brighthearth and Kjeldoran Autpost in an EDH deck. Sure, that requires a ton of mana, but it was in a very late game situation, and beeing there able to play two shocks each turn was very strong.

No reason not to include one of these in a mono-Red deck; you never know when it will come in handy.

Eh, colorless mana and Shock damage aren't all that great, still it could be useful in the correct situation.

I got two of these in a sealed pack Invasion pre-release tournament. They didn't do me any favors.

Whoever is put off by the cost to activate the 2nd ability needs to know:

- This is LAND damage, bypasses most protection
- Instant, can be used with tokens
- Can be used to finish off opponents during the late game when you are not able to put more creatures through or ran out of direct damage spells

3/5 for some playability

i do´t like it

- its ability is 6 mana, burn decks win before you get that much mana
- its much worse than Shivan Gorge
- its only ability costs RED mana while it name reads keldon NECROPOLIS

+/- you must sac something for the ability which is basicly bad but can be usefull

+ it is a colorless scource of damage

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
