Very good in a land recursion deck, as some have said. The drawback is not a drawback at all if played in the right deck.

I don't think that Stifle would work. According to the new Oracle text, you have to sacrifice the lands due to a replacement effect, not a triggered ability.

As far as I know, there's no way to get Lotus Vale into play without sacrificing the lands.

Okay! So I thought of an infinite mana any color combo with this card, Oboro Breezecaller, Patron of the Moon, and two other lands on the field that don't bounce other land.

Step 1: Tap Lotsu Vale for three {W} {U} {B} {R} {G}.
Step 2: Pay {2} to bounce misc. land with Oboro Breezecaller's ability. Untap Lotus Vale. One floating mana of the color tapped with Lotus Vale.
Step 3: Repeat Step 1 than 2. Two mana floating of any color.
Step 4: Pay {1} to place the two land you bounced into play with Patron of the Moon's ability. One mana of any color you choose left floating.
Step 5: Repeat Steps 1 through 4 for infinite mana of any color combination!

Yay! I think I semi-redeemed Oboro Breezecaller, with it's absolutely GORGEOUS artwork!

Sorry for any formatting issues, and I'm sure someone else has though of this before, but I didn't see it posted up here so... And I know it's fragile, but hey! Who's gonna suspect Oboro Breezecaller as pa... (see all)

You guys also forget that it makes for a ridiculous combo with things like Garruk Wildspeaker or Argothian Elder.

Also, I wonder how much the original wording was abused before Wizards realized that they had accidentally reprinted Black Lotus, heh.

If I was into the magic market, i'd pick these up.
I mean, they changed Time Vault to its original wording. Why haven't they done the same to this? Why do they play favorites like that? Why are certain cards too good for oracle? The power level oracle system seems random.

For those wondering why they haven't changed it: As printed, it allows you to get three mana for one turn before you have to sacrifice it. It was never supposed to let you get mana with no sacrifice, so they changed it to prevent that. It's not getting changed back.

I thought they didn't do power level errata...

What do you prefer for saccing two untapped lands?
Three mana of any color, or four colorless mana instead?
Interestingly, the last-named land has the subsequent multiverse id to this card.

Would be an interesting reprint in today's world. Might have seen play if only for the color-fixing, and probably enabling Garruk based decks. Also this would have done a nice job dodging Tectonic Edge, the only real land destruction in today's Standard.
