The reason it says "remove all damage from it" is because it would do jack shit about state-based actions trying to destroy it (due to, say, lethal damage after being animated) as the SBA's would try to destroy it again immediately after you prevented it the first time.

Oh wait I get it. The damage is removed instead of it being destroyed. huh

I can't remember EVER seeing this thing in a deck and I'm talkin' since it came out in 94 lol.

Hot tech in man-land decks... wait why are you tapping out your man lands for a 6 drop that does nothing when it hits the board?

yaaay Armageddon.

Its not just "regenerate" since that would cause it to tap and remove it from combat. This can regenerate a creature without removing it from combat...if the creature is a man-land.

Used to cost 3, but Weber did a reverse-Onulet.

Yard Imps was a decent re-invention.

Wonderful land protection, provided you have the mana for it (and the money in your wallet to buy one). A bit overcosted to get it out though.

One important thing to note is that this card gets around "it can't be regenerated" effects: the card doesn't regenerate lands, it replaces the destruction effect. If you have a manland and your opponent decides to Pongify it, you can save the land AND keep the 3/3 Ape token anyway.

A good Johnny card I suppose, but not good for much else.

Killed by the casting cost, like a lot of old artifacts. If you got to 6, you aren't worrying about land destruction anymore. If your opponent is running Armageddon, they'd probably use it before 6.

Oracle still has to reconcile somewhat the poor wording of the rules text and how it should be actually played. If this came out new today, what it would probably say is "2: Target land is indestructible until end of turn." Simple. If that land becomes a creature, it's still indestructible.

Being able to save your lands from a board wipe is never bad, not for two mana each. If you're up just two or three lands on everyone else, you're in good shape.
