.5/5
Unbalanced cards as a result of poor testing should always be rated a .5/5

Sacrifice a creature just for an additional swamp for every swamp? No thanks...

Any card that is this expensive to use that can be hosed by the multitude of artifacts and creatures that generate mana shouldn't be rated near this high.

This card is obviously very powerful. If you get it on the battlefield with Bitterblossom, Bloodghast or Ichorid, non-black decks can't do anything unless they have non-land mana sources, while you can play more or less as normal.

@ N84M09: A black card that costs 3 and has "sacrifice a creature during your upkeep. all swamps produce an additional B." seems strong for many black decks, i would definitely run that card.

But as for this card, its just as good, if not better, especially in multilayer. Forcing non-black/artifact players to effectively treat all mana they can produce as colorless is a huge nerf. I run one in my edh.

Maindeck this in a Pox deck with Nether Spirit. Sideboard it out if you are playing against black or whatever for something else like Contagion or something. Extremely good card don't knock this. No less than 5 stars you just have to play around it a teeny tiny bit. Also, please note your Mishra's Factories and Wastelands would tap for black mana as well.

I run this in my reanimator thrull deck with breeding pit and nether traitor. Very fun to keep a steady cycle of creature death and undeath, and if your opponent can't find a way to kill off your creatures, it's essentially a black stasis.

Just another reason to make sure you have colourless mass removal in your EDH deck, things like Oblivion Stone can take care of this, even if your deck wouldn't normally produce {B} mana.
