I... drink... your... DUSTSHAKE!

Note the "on their controllers' untap steps" clause. If you can find a way to make your lands untap on THEIR phase, they're all set to go when your turn comes around. A good example of how to do this is an artifact land-heavy deck (or Mycosynth Lattice if you can manage the 6 colorless) and an Unwinding Clock. I use the lattice/clock combo in an artifact deck to keep up a solid defense during opponents' turns, but it's just as applicable here in crippling opponents' mana supplies but leaving yours mostly unaffected.

Winter Orb on legendary legs. An interesting tool for a control deck.

Although you likely won't want to use both simultaneously since this would allow untapping two lands.
Anyways, Stoneshaker Shaman does a great job with this guy if you're splashing red.
Spelltithe Enforcer, Loxodon Gatekeeper, Kismet and Orb of Dreams also work nicely with this guy (or the Winter Orb).
If you add any other forms of mana accel to your deck you'll get a big advantage from doing so.
Mana Cache can have use for this deck in particular (and Mana Geyser would have too if it wasn't simply that awful), Braid of Fire also works nicely, and any mana artifacts like Chrome Mox or Mox Diamond easily allow to cast Hokori earlier, too.

Sorry, but no, Donovan. Murky only untaps blue and/or green creatures.

That is such amazing art it almost validated Kamigawa as a set.

Horoki + murkfiend, you can use all your lands, but your opponent can't.

Interesting way to slowwwwww things down. Maybe combine it with all those otherwise horrible 'Untap when this happens' lands for a passable but still horrible combo? Nah, probably not. But it has an interesting flavor and one of those effects that just screams 'build a deck around me, I'm better than I look'

In my opinion Rising Waters is better and you can better build a blue deck around it with Early Frost or such kind of cards.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
