Mr. Pawn has the right idea. Way to think creatively.

If it also had a tap effect for a regular mana without any extras (so no haste and no life loss), it would actually be a pretty good land with that "haste for 3 life" option. However, since paying 3 life is the one and only way to extract mana from this card without help, it sucks.

This card has actually served me pretty well in my Marrow-Gnawer/Intruder Alarm deck, where often times that haste is what makes or breaks the combo, as someone will typically kill/exile/steal the poor guy as soon as it's their turn.

Great card in EDH where you have tons of life and creatures having haste matters a lot more. Not so great if you are playing red

It's possible to win on the second turn, but not at all likely. TRASH RARE ALERT, God I hate you Kamigawa block.

comes into play tapped, can only have one copy in play and gives haste at the expense of 3 life... what an awesome deal.

Now now, don't be so hasty (haha what an awesome pun), this card can give any color the ability to have creatures with haste. It's a combo card, it will suck horribly if you plop it in a deck without any forethought.
