This has to be the holy grail of Lands. Especially compared to all the ones that demand you align the moons of Jupiter and wash your opponents car in order to get one mana more than a basic would give anyway. This just asks you politely to toss out some things you were probably playing a lot of anyway.

How is it possible this is rated lower than Gaea's Cradle?
The people calling this the best land ever know what's up.

I mean, the Cradle is awesome, but this card is insane in any deck that caters to it even slightly.

It's not hard to pump this bad boy up with Moxen, and lands like Seat of the Synod and Darksteel Citadel.

Lotus + say, 2 Moxen + Mana Vault + Academy = 11 mana round one.
That is true power.

If my other two cards are Panoptic Mirror and Time Walk,
or if I get a Demonic Tutor,
you lose.

Call it broken all you want- I'm still using this awesome blessing of a land :-D

I remember seeing this card at the pre-release, I traded for 4 of them right away. even before artifact lands were in the picture this card was just broken with all the moxen, sol ring, Mana Crypt, Vault ext. it wasn't long till it was restricted. I could even tap Mishra's Factories for blue with this thing on the table. Snake Basket was even more wonderful when this card came out, until then we only thought of snake basket has a Mana Drain dumper.

Probably the greatest land of all time. I can't see much that could compete with this. It would be just as broken in Standard today with all the 0-drop artifacts.

@Resyx, the reason this card is broken is because there are 0-cost artifats, and a lot of them. Gaea's Cradle is broken because of token creatures, and the handful of 0-cost creatures that exist. There are no 0-cost enchantments, and so far only one card makes enchantment tokens, so Serra's Sanctum is unbroken.

Tap: Add sh*t tons of mana to your mana pool, you win the game.

Tolarian Academy
Cards in your hand have affinity for artifacts.

Only slightly better because it can reduce cost by {U} not just {1}.

Finally, they made Liquimetal Coating for all your artifact needs!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
