That's VERY situational, how often are you going to get four of these in the first 5 turns?
Also, why would you ever play Draco?
None-the-less, I prefer this to Eye of Ugin if it's not in limited. I'd still run some for the tutoring ability.

For a colorless deck this card is a must along with its glimmerpost counterpart. And with a blue deck you could use a xenograft to make all your creatures Locus subtyped. Then you would have semi-limitless mana. EPIC

you got this only affected by vesuva as changling only affects creature not lands just so you know
do not put rulings on a card if you dont know what you are talking about

This can get pretty strong with Vesuva or shapeshifer's in play

I don't think this card is as over powered as people think, it comes into play tapped so you can't do anything with it turn one, and on turn two you only have two mana to spend any ways, even if you are lucky enough to get Amulet of Vigor in your opening hand. compared to other mana ramp it actually lacks. and are you really going to run 4 amulet of vigor? and even then you might not get it, so what do you do run search cards? well now even more cards in you deck don't do anything. also this is assuming you get all of your cloudposts and vesuvas on que, which is unlikely and there is only a small number of cards you can use to search for them, and only one of them isn't green. so what are you going to do? run more search cards? run mana fixing to play green spells? or you could just go mono green and play all your eldrazi just as quick but more reliably.

Okay, so if you have Amoeboid Changeling out, or any other changeling (or mistform card), could you count that as a lotus? I know the locus isn't marked as a creature type, but it's every type out there. And, sooner or later, there will be locus creatures.

Great card, and I love the flavor text. Really evokes the mystery that was inherent to the beginning of the Mirrodin storyline.

its too bad this isnt comming back in Scars... or is it... well Mirrodin Besieged and "Action" have yet to be released/previewed so if it does comeback then Glimmerpost with have good friends, 4th Glimmerpost gain 9 life get 32 mana for your cloudposts and along with 4 more Vesuva = holy crap you just got all 3 drazi out in one turn =O
4 cloudposts
4 glimmerpost
4 Vesuva
if Vesuva becomes a locus then you get 12 mana per cloudpost and Vesuva so you would get up to 12 life and get 96 mana in one turn you then proceed to summon what ever fits your fancy.
