I think a lot of people are missing the value of the Ravnica Karoo lands. You don't have to return an untapped land to your hand when you play this.

For example, on turn three you can tap two lands, play a two-drop, then play this and return one of the tapped lands to your hand. Then on turn four you can play the land you returned and you'll have four mana available. You lose tempo by not being able to play a card where you normally could (three-drop on turn three, etc), but you gain mana fixing.

Non-basic land destruction will hurt you a lot if one of these gets hit with it, so watch for that. It also loses some of the versatility of the dual lands that let you choose which color to add to your mana pool.

However, these cards work very well with Amulet of Vigor and land untapping effects.

In addition, they're a cost-effective alternative for mana fixing in your deck if you don't feel like spending $5.00+ on a single dual land.

Oh, and for the hundredth... (see all)

These types of lands are actually quite useful in decks that use a lot of land-based strategies. Non-basic lands which have an "enter the battlefield" ability can be returned to your hand and later reused. Landfall abilities can be triggered more often; especially if this land bounces itself. Also, if an opponent has attached something harmful, like an enchantment or one of Obsidian Fireheart's burn counters to a land of yours, you can bounce it back.

It won't win you any races without Amulet of Vigor, but I like the mana fixing, needing less total lands in my deck and being able to reuse my Sejiri Steppe.

4/5

Bounce itself for landfall boosts every turn.
