@j_mindfingerpainter Don't forget Deserted Temple and (with a splash of blue) Minamo, School at Water's Edge. Hell, even in my EDH I had all that plus Vesuva and Thespian's Stage copying Deserted Temple and I was making 40+ blue by turn 6-7. This card is totes breakable - I think the cracks are already present, just a matter of time before it all gets shattered.

5/5
Well thought out. Rewards good deck building.
And this could easily get just as silly as Gaea's Cradle for mana accel.
I just placed an order for two and will probably pick up another two. The price on this may well do a good bit of climbing.

I built a deck with this and Gaea's Cradle, and this consistently gets me more mana by turn 3. Arbor Elf and cards like Utopia Sprawl and Garruk Wildspeaker provide faster mana acceleration in turns 2-3 than traditional dorks like Llanowar Elves. Nykthos synergizes with those cards. Gaea's Cradle doesn't. Throw all of them into the mix and you get absurd amounts of mana. Add a Nylea's Presence and your Nykthos becomes a forest, which can then be untapped with Arbor Elf. And if you're really looking to have some fun, run 4 Argothian Enchantress and suddenly all those enchantments that are adding to your devotion are turning into cantrips. It may not be the fastest way to bring out an Emrakul, the Aeons torn in Legacy, but the deck is incredibly fun to play, especially in a ... (see all)

Why is this only rated three stars? Sure in most Standard decks right now this doesn't do much good, and being legendary limits the potential, but in the right mono deck this is just absurd. I use this for alpha strikes in my dragon tribal and it's become so feared most of my friends drop an obscenity everytime I play it. Moonveil Dragon can easily exploit this to pump already powerful creatures for +10. That can easily end even five player games with only a few creatures. 5/5. In the right deck, this thing's terrifying.

I'm sure I'll get voted down, but this card is actually not very good at all in the eternal formats. I don't think people have realized it yet. "Add a bunch of mana to your mana pool when you already have a lot of stuff in play" just isn't something that swings games.

How the hell could they print this land without any kind of drawback? The tap for colorless is just to much for the kind of power it brings.

Its like they said, "Hey remember how strong Cabal Coffers was? I loved the power but hated its early game, lets make a new version that also taps for colorless. Its kay though because legendary"
