Welcome back to Give and Let Give!
We've got another trade from the archives of Magic's history and this time it comes from Antiquities. The Tropical Island was somewhat overshadowed here and is a close second.
I remember OF this card, but I've never seen it actually played. Maybe because... it's on the reserved list and worth a ton of points (293,035). I haven't done my research here, but without doing so I can already invision some infinite combos with this card. It has been errated ("X, Tap: Untap X target lands."), like all of the Mono Artifiacts. With that knowledge if you can untap it repeatedly (Voltaic Key), it doesn't seem difficult generate infinite mana and do whatever you want at that point. Game over?
The candles are burning bright this week.
