what are the uses for that second ability?

This is perfect for a U/W deck. I love when I draw this and a plains, because usually your opponent won't realize you actually DO have counter mana up, as you can use the plains to bounce Oboro back to your hand and then play and tap it again for UU.

Wow. Almost strictly better than Island. This might as well say "Variable Colorless, Tap: Add X+1 blue mana to your mana pool." It also avoids land destruction if you have mana up. Very nice.

...Wait no, I was thinking that you could play as many lands as you want in a turn. That's not right. Still 5/5, though.

This sucks for landfall. It takes up your land drop for a land you already played. Fetch lands are infinitely better- you can get two triggers from each one you drop. One from when you play it, one from when you crack it. Also terramorphic expanse and evolving wilds are both common and can work in any deck, as opposed to either monoblue or some blue hybrid.

Remember, landfall isn't about being able to drop one land every turn. It's about dropping 2 or more lands in one turn.

@ rubber:

Because this doesn't combo with High Tide. If this were a Legendary Land - Island, however, I'd expect this to be hard to trade for.

Infinite life combo with this + Grazing Gladeheart + Fast Bond

Now add in Hedron crab. Infinite life + Infinite Mill

Or how about Ob Nixilis, the Fallen for infinite life loss and +1/+1 counters?

Not good enough? Will exiling all their nonland permanents satisfy you?! Admonition Angel

What about after making a lot of plants.. you make them really big plants! Avenger of Zendikar

Or why not draw as much as you want if you add Horn of Greed into the equation

I like it, but I wish it supported the Moonfolk better - maybe some way to put it into play from your hand, so you could use a moonfolk's ability without giving up too much momentum bouncing your own land. As it stands though, still kinda cool.

This is one of my favorite lands. Strictly more badass than island.

Love this. Played against a pox deck. I had 4 lands, the guy threw out Pox. Instead of sacrifing 2 lands (1/3 of 4 being 2 rounded up), I returned this to my hand and sacrificed only 1 land. That's a win in my book.
