This guy likes to untap Tolarian Academy.

There are quite a few legendary Wizards that use tapping. Works very well in a Wizard deck.

Not just Wizards, of course. Just throwing it out there.

One of my favorite EDH cards. It's just so beautifully simple in its utility. It's a land that does more. Not too much, but enough to make it very useful.

It's also very nice for mana fixing, like in my W/U kamigawa control deck I can untap my legendary white lands to get more white mana ( eiganjo castle & flagstones of trokair ).

Fortify with Darksteel Garrison to pump any creature for +1/+1 for each extra blue mana you wanna spend every turn.

Courtesy explanation: Target itself to untap while fortified, so that when it taps, it gives +1/+1, then it untaps itself thanks to its ability.

Note: You can target it, since the only required property of the target card is that it's a legendary permanent. The target can be tapped or untapped.

If you run a deck that needs blue mana and has even but one Legendary permanent, this card's already better than Island. Even if your deck has cards that need you to have an Island, as you'll likely have enough of those anyway (unless you run 3 or more colors).

@ Neutralion Patron of the Orochi untaps itself b/c the tapping act happens before the ability resolves so that's why they had to put in the "only use this once per turn" thing, so players wouldn't get infinite mana for things like stream of life, blaze, or helix pinnacle.

Combo with Captain Sisay. Tutor 2 legends per turn for the cost of Blue.
