What's not to love?

Early game you can take the two damage to fix your mana base, and late game you don't have to. Very potent mana fixing, for sure.

$12 Dollars for an extremely solid as-in-good-for-as-long-you-play-Magic land isn't that steep.

I mean that all the Lands that really make/break certain Legacy, Vintage, and Commander decks frequently start the bidding at $50, and go up to $200-$300. Especially in Commander, where foil blingy-ness is a more relevant factor and the tiny number of Super Duper Lands with Super Ultra Rare Promos:
Mutavault, Wasteland, Maze of Ith, Library of Alexandria, and Bazaar of Baghdad being the most powerful examples, but there are a score and then some of lands that fit right in that $25-$50 class of Staple Rares.

$12 for a land in Standard is annoying, for Modern it's neither cheap nor expensive- just about normal.

Interestingly, probably all the most fun decks are built around getting around the Secondary Market- trying really really hard to find the commons that can beat the Rares and Mythics. That's how the entire Color Red got it's Identity and Awesome from- beating up Blue Decks Playing wi... (see all)

The ravnica dual-lands are very powerful when used with the zendikar fetch-lands. Careful not to ping yourself to death though

This card can actually be really good with cards like sunpetal grove and dragon skull summit, as playing either one will now allow them to come into untapped just for having your 1 overgrown tomb that's both a swamp and a forest. Great way to set up a multi color deck.

Most people don't think that life and death can co-exist, ha! well this crypt is the proof it can! Its way better than that life obsessed Temple Garden.

The only thing bad about the shocklands is the price tag. $12 for a land is kinda steep.
