Quote from steve_man »Shelldock Isle is a decent supplement to Cheaty Face / Channel type strategies, especially if you support Eldrazi. It's nothing special though, IMO. It's currently my 3rd favorite blue utility land after Tolarian Academy and Faerie Conclave. I don't think it's on the same level as Academy though, and certainly not top 20 blue material in my book.
The overall list is agreeable for the most part. I pretty much divided the blue cards into 3 territories:
- Obviously broken
- Build around
- Value spell
The one value spell that I felt is criminally under-represented is Fact or Fiction, especially over Consecrated Sphinx / Dig Through Time. Fact or Fiction is cheap, splashable, fuels my graveyard, and is very easy to ramp up to early game (especially in powered cubes).
