Don't forget that Crucible and Loam are a thing too!
Quote from wtwlf123 »I think it's good. Krosan Verge is a strong land, and this one (while a bit worse for WG) can be used by any color. It would be hard for me to exclude this from any midrange or control deck.
Quote from ColbyCube »
So you went up one card on the battlefield but invested 4 mana to do so. That's a really bad Cultivate imo.
Quote from dr. teeth I 'm a big fan of flavor, but I sure prefer the taste of bacon to buttholes.
Quote from CorporateNoun »They don't have to be basics. You can get two Shocklands that share a type. Or two Urza lands!
It's slow-ish but that doesn't make it bad. Decks that need the colors will reward the patience required to set it up. It's not an aggro card, that's for sure. I don't think it's the most cube-able card on the planet, but it's not "bad". I wouldn't stretch to include it at smaller sizes just because of that "new card smell". Bigger cubes can support it.

You might want to read the card again. It says "two basic land cards".
Quote from Crocodile »I'm not saying this card is amazing but comparing it to Cultivate seems off. This doesn't take a spell slot.
Quote from Colby »Why is this a strong land? This seems horrible to me.
Quote from wtwlf123 »Have you ever played Krosan Verge?
Quote from wtwlf123 »A control deck can play this on T1, use it on T2 for mana, and then crack it on T3 for an activation that sets up a 5-lands on T4, with double-color fixing and card advantage from one of them.
Quote from Salmo »While I don't necessarily disagree that this card isn't the greatest, spreading out the cost of cultivate over a couple turns does make a difference.
Quote from Toad »A land that ramps and generates card advantage looks like an auto include to me.
I'm definitely adding this at 450, and I would also include it at 360 without a doubt.
Even when it wasn't getting dual lands, the fact that you get mana fixing, card advantage, double deck thinning and a shuffle effect from a land slot is great. In any deck that isn't focussed on its tempo, I'd be willing to play this land. It's card advantage on a land. A colorless land. Similarly to filter lands, I also get double-colored fixing from this card.
I'm not saying this land is broken or anything, but it's definitely a solid option for slower midrange decks and control decks.
