I don't understand why everyone is so crazy about Tome Scour. This mills just four cards - for many years now - but at instant speed and with two further options attached. And the best is that you can put it on a stick: Isochron Scepter.

At worst, this is an instant tome scour. At best, it's a silence for mono or dual (or even three or four) colored decks. Great card.

For reference the land types are:

forest
island
mountain
plains
swamp

desert
gate
lair
locus
mine
power-plant
tower
urza's

All lands that have whichever of the above types you name will have the second typed named instead of all previous types until end of turn. IE if you name mountain for the first type and swamp for the second then a land that has types forest and mountain will gain type swamp and lose its forest and mountain types until end of turn.

Non basic lands that gain basic types are still non-basic lands and still have the same name.

Desert-Forest is my favorite change and seems to fit the flavor of visions.
If it got to keep it's original type then Desert-Island would be neat too.

This card has everything going for it. Cheap mana cost, instant speed, 3 options, great for milling, great for control decks (becomes a Silence if you are playing against a mono-deck i might add), AND it is a common, which means it is plentiful, cheap, and legal in "peasant" magic. 5/5 for this card!

I play this in my U/B/R deck with Flashfires as the backbone combo of the deck. No better effect than completly wiping out your opponents lands for only 5 mana

Instantness (?) is relevant because you can cast this after opponent has brainstormed for instance.

Phasing out an Phyrexian Dreadnought sounds good!

People like Tome Scour because you can use it in formats that aren't eternal :P Given the option, most people would probably prefer this.
