This is a great 1-drop and a mana accelerator at that. It can cast Mana Drain turn two while you spend one mana on something else, like a Thoughtseize. This cycle is actually pretty good.

Lets see...
Amulet of Vigor
Tideforce Elemental
Sakura Tribe Scout
Meloku the Clouded Mirror

Tap scout to pull skerry, tap skerry for UU, use U with Meloku for bouncing skerry, use U w/ tideforce to untap scout. Repeat as needed.

Unfortunably, finding uses for the depletion lands which neither involve infinite combos nor proliferate is hard.

Gives you some ramp in mono-blue. Kind of neat.

I used to run these. By the time your Skerries are dead, you probably got what you wanted to do out of your system, and no longer need the ramp.

Depletion lands like these are great; not just in proliferate decks (which breathes new free-ramping life into them) but also in aggressive decks that need that game-changing spell a turn earlier. When you can have 5 mana T3 without spending cards to do it; it can end the game right there.

Why does Necrotic Ooze keep coming up in these comments? Unless I'm missing something, there's no interaction due to this not being a creature.

Coming into play tapped + having the depletion mechanic are big drawbacks, but I do like that it Taps for BlueBlue. I'm definitely throwing this in a deck with Amulet of Vigor (so it caomes into play untapped), and cards that let you proliferate so you diminish the risk of running out of depletion counters.
