Imagine using worldly tutor to put Progenitus on top and use this card to activate a Door to Nothingness.

That my friend, would be a fantastic play.

I see this card as a challenge, to find what cost 3UUB.

Turns out there are only three, and one is fresh out of the printing press.
Princess Lucrezia
Spinal Embrace
Wrexial, the Risen Deep

I think you can only choose between one or the other. Halves of a hybrid mana symbol are not full mana symbols.

Could I play this in a mono-green EDH? It doesn't fit the general's color identity, yet it's only reminder text .

Surprising synergy with Vengeful Pharaoh. Sure, I'll take a free BlackBlackBlack to cast instants every turn, with the added bonus that Pharaoh goes back to the 'yard where he belongs.

My threshold deck wants this bad.
For some reason it has trouble getting over 5 land out, and over a 3rd of the cards are lands.

I feel this would have a nice place in a 5-color EDH deck, just for the ability to mill a card off the top and cast any card you really want. A fun card in general, with good deck synergies.

@Vinifera7: You get to choose between both mana types.
So this card works pretty good with Reaper King- Your pick of WhiteBlueBlackRedGreen and 2 for each you don't take.
Nice combo with Demigod of Revenge if you already have one in hand. Two demigods for the price of none!

@lorendorky, Yes, you can play this in any EDH deck (except a colorless one, where it would be pointless). If colored mana symbols are being used as an example of how to use the card, they don't count towards color identity (it's not actually reminder text, but it's not technically rules text either).

Other cards where this applies that I know of would be Trinisphere (the Darksteel printing) and North Star.

This one should work nicely with the Spirit Avatars or any Ultimatum. Since their entire cost consists of colored mana, you'll either get five or seven mana (and might be able to play the card you've just thrown from your library into your graveyard).
