at first glance, the cost of 5 seems high but you can tap it the turn it comes out, meaning you only spend a net of two mana the turn you cast it... not for every deck but definitely worth it in those with high cmc stuff

wich one Thran dynamo or this, why not both?
1t: land, sol ring, signet
2t:land, signet, thran dynamo, and 3 mana free
3t: land, this, and you have 8 mana free
4t: you have mana overflow

this card is perfect for any multi color deck(thran is colorless) that holds the enemy off from turns 1-5 and then blasts them with aton of monsters about 5/5 with all the mana reserves ive been saving for the past 5 turns. this card might cost 5 mana, but the next turn after i play it, ive increased my mana pool from 5 to 8 not counting the 1 i can play that turn.

A card that can get in any expensive type of playing. 3.5

It functions like mox in that it sticks around, and functions like a lotus in that you get 3 mana of any color. What a nice card.

And what else can't you blow up or bounce realistically? This thing is no more vulnerable to spot removal and bounce than any other card excluding maybe 20 cards that can resist both in the whole of magic. Your statement is redundant, just as 'Dies to Doom Blade,' is on any non black bomb.
Now, I'm not sure how this did in constructed back in the day, as I dropped out right before Mirrodin and came back at the end of Alara, this hing would be amazing, and almost an auto include, in any EDH deck. And, not to mention, there's certain ways to cheat this into play, is there not? Also, not affected by Armageddon if you're running that, so another advantage. Overall, in formats where it's viable, great card.

And... returning in M13. Whoa.

The three free don't need to be used on casting spells (I tend to use it in conjunction with either Serum Tank or Dragon Blood). It also helps you ramp out your bigger threats sooner (even more so if you can drop it third turn...Seething Song into this into another song into...something nasty (search for CMC 5 in red and artifacts); my favorite in that list would probably be Batterskull).
