It also perfectly curves into Lotus Field to ramp you to 6 mana on turn 4. It might also be the best white hate card against modern dredge decks since Rest in Peace was printed. There's just really no realistic way for dredge to win when they have to pay 2 mana every time they want to get a single Bloodghast or Prized Amalgam from the graveyard onto the battlefield.
First card for us cEDH players. Not amazing but taxes iso,mox diamond and chrome mox. Worth testing.
Note that Mox Diamond is not a triggered ability but instead a replacement ability. Same I think for Lotus Vale and Scorched Ruins; these three things will not work in any beneficial way with this card.
