Decent (if inconsistent) T2 ramp in limited, while also being a Goblin Piker - value! Has the potential to go explosive with Verdant Haven as well. Today I got to live the dream of

Turn 1: Guildgate
Turn 2: Land, Greenside Watcher
Turn 3: Land, Verdant Haven on guildgate
Turn 4: Gruul Ragebeast

Theoretically, you could untap the guildgate on turn 3, play another Watcher, then play a 9-drop on turn 4.

This guy is rated way too low. He's awesome in Limited, he did tons of work for me at the prerelease. :)

Not bad. Allows for multi-color Arbor Elfing without the need of $20 shocklands.

I want to draft seven Crackling Perimeters, five of these and four Urban Burgeoning.

Definitely not the best of the new gate-interaction cards, but this allows for access to a color on a gate that entered the battlefield on the current term.

Mana-fixing GOD in limited. Absolutely no worthwhile applications in constructed ever. Torn, but it let me cast Aurelia a turn early at the prerelease, which won me the match, so I'm giving it a 4/5.

This is getting me excited for a "super-gate" in Dragon's Maze.

The only way the gates will be avenged is if Dragon's Maze they make the card:
"Tap, Add 1 mana to your mana pool for each gate you control"

EDIT: Well apparently they are making Guildgates the new basic lands for Dragon's Maze. That's acceptable enough for me.

Gates really needed a strong push to be significant, even in limited. They instead got a crapload of mediocrity. Bummer.

Couldn't this at least be 2/2. Gate untapping is far less relevant in limited than arbor elf's ability and there's no other format where gates are played. This guy battling for that elusive 23rd card spot.
