Cheap and fast yes but don't forget the 1st permanent mana ramp, Fastbond. 5/5

@Tribor Well, I suppose the next cheapest option is Sakura-Tribe Scout, though you do need to wait an extra turn.

It says a lot when a card like this wasn't a tournament staple during Urza's Block.

What a ridiculous card, unsurprisingly from Urza's saga. It is the cheapest way to get extra land drops! Your next cheapest options are Explore and Summer Bloom, and neither of them are permanents.

I need me some of these.

Edit: Ah yes, I had forgotten about effects that plop lands from your hand into play. Sakura-Tribe Scout means land drops at instant speed (good for landfall abilities). Play Exploration on turn 1, play an extra forest, then play Sakura-Tribe. :D

@Continue RE: "What? No seriously, WHAT?! How the hell isn't this on the reserved list?"

Tempest, Stronghold, Exodus, Urza's Saga, Urza's Legacy and Urza's Destiny rares were added in the 2002 update of the reserve list.
Unlike previous sets, the majority of rare cards weren't added. It was just the good ones.

Tempest: 16 Rares (large set) 14%
Stronghold: 7 Rares (small set) 16%
Exodus: 9 Rares (small set) 20%
Urza's Saga: 18 Rares (large set) 16%
Urza's Legacy: 9 Rares (small set) 20%
Urza's Destiny: 14 Rares (small set) 31%

Compare Weatherlight, 39 rares out of 54 are reserved. That's 72%.

GORGEOUS art on an all-time classic. For those mentioning its value is only early-game ramp, don't forget that this also has tons of value late-game if your deck is big on card draw. Drawing 5 or more cards is going to probably get you a land or two, especially in EDH. This turns that into immediate casting power.

@Continue: Because the Reserved List is largely arbitrary and misguided anyway. Why is this not reserved when a card like Thunder Spirit is? Wizards will likely never tell.

This looks really, really, really good at first, but then you realize you won't be drawing enough lands to play two a turn consistently. Then it just looks really good
