This card and the other Locuses make for a very fun casual deck. :D

My deck runs 4 Cloudpost, 4 Vesuva, and a Mycosynth Lattice Then, instead of 64 colorless mana, I have 64 (Red, White, Blue, Black, Green in any combo) land! So you want Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker out turn 4 with 8 spare mana of any color in reserve for creatures, well you got it.
So, ideally it would go like so:
Turn 1: Cloudpost
Turn 2: Amulet of Vigor , then Cloudpost or Vesuva, tap for 2 Everflowing Chalice kicked 1 time
Turn 3: Cloudpost or Vesuva, Mycosynth Lattice
Turn 4: Cloudpost or Vesuva, Tooth and Nail for 9 searching for Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Blightsteel Colossus, and you still have enough for a planeswalker such as Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, or just burn with something like Comet Sto... (see all)

This card is really a bit broken. All you need is a way to fetch up a few, which isn't hard to do, then you get 10 drops on turn 5.

Banned in Modern.

Yet 8 post is still legal in pauper, and there are fewer decks to punish you for doing nothing in first few turns. And there is indeed somewhat broken things you can do with tons of mana in pauper....

But I guess I'm the only person thinking this (and Empty the Warrens) should have something done about them.

Turn all lands into creatures via one of the many effects that does so, then play Mirrorweave. Proceed to collect obscene amounts of mana.

I run 4 of these and 4 Glimmerposts in my casual artifact deck. It's a total beast, even if you get a starting hand with just a single cloudpost you know you're golden. It's always such a blast to hard-cast Blightsteel Colossus on turn 4 or 5. And Darksteel Colossus on the next.

You should probably run forests and crop rotations if you are depending on this.
Personally, I prefer Urza's Tower and friends due to the fact that they come into play untapped.

@runner220: Locus is not a creature subtype, so that would not work. However you might want to look at LordRandomness' Mirrorweave idea.

Scapeshift into four of this, four of Glimmerpost and four Vesuvas and you can instantly fill that handy dandy Helix Pinnacle.

Instantly as in when they untap of course.

UNLESS! You happen to have out one or more Amulet of Vigors. :P

Best friends with a playset of All Is Dust.
