I like this better than City of Brass. Sure it enters the battlefield tapped, but it doesn't ping you when your opponent taps it for you. Plus you can tap this for 1 with no damage. Guess it comes down to personal tastes, but I for one can handle it being tapped for one turn.

I wished it interacted with creatures somehow.

a slightly worse version of city of brass

filter changes the name, but the link works.

Strictly worse than Seaside Citadel et al unless you're playing 5-color, 4-color, or at least 3-color wedge.

There are better options. But this was my first rare land and the art and concept are just cool to me. 4/5 for playing things you like.

I too don't get the flavor. I think this should've been a land with a fight mechanic. Any-colored mana is usually represented by astronomical events, markets (because you could get rare trinkets that power you with mana?), a perfect world (various green utopia cards), or rare artifacts that contain magical essence.

This is a place where stuff kills eachother.

The flavor of the card is that its a place where people from every walk of life come to gain some kind of benefit by putting their life on the line. Thus, you can get anything you want here, but you're going to pay in blood.

And it isn't worse than City of Brass, because it doesn't damage you every time it becomes tapped. Only when you need colored mana.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
