Cavern of Souls
Land (R)

When Cavern of Souls enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.
: Add to your mana pool.
: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool. Spend this mana only to play a creature of the chosen type. That creature cannot be countered.
Hot DAMN

This card is bonkers. Without the first ability, mediocre, but with? DAMN.

Snapcaster Mage is the best card of all time. How do you deal?

My mistake. Meant to be rare...
Wow. Must-have 4 in any tribal deck.

Snapcaster Mage is the best card of all time. How do you deal?

A tribal staple. It'll cost a crap-load of money.
It shouldn't be that expensive, actually.


Tribal decks are largely Casual, and they don't tend to buy Singles a lot, so the price shouldn't be that high.

Furthermore, most tribal decks are mono-coloured, so this isn't actually that good since it doesn't let you do things like pay off-colour flashback costs or activation costs of your creatures.

EDIT: Oh, missed the "Can't be countered." bit. This is good. 
I really dislike this card, it emphasizes all the things I hate about Magic. Tribal decks shouldn't be able to beat control decks that easily. This is way better than Ancient Ziggurat, to boot. I'll hold my ranting until the card that foils this comes along, though.
IMO I feel like Return to Ravnica is going to be tribal.  I've seen hints at it all through Innistrad, and I feel like this is a big push for it.

HOLY ****

This is INSANE. 
Counterspells are for bores anyone. I'm glad this crushes them.
glorious quad-color Archer Tribal master race is going to love this card
Ancient Ziggurat is one of my least favorite cards ever printed. THIS is what it should have been. Holy crap this card is amazing. It will find a place in many decks, and not just tribal decks.
I see they're trying to convince me to play Elemental Tribal EDH...
This set pleases me.

HELL YES

This is the kind of cards that they need to print on a daily basis to avoid having 4 or more Island deck in the top 8 of most constructed formats. This isn't enough (Vapor Snag is still a card) but it is a step in the right direction. The tribal restriction is a little bit annoying (I would rather have to stick to color of mana rather than a creature type) but thanks to it blue is not going to pass unhosed. Now I will be able to stick a Sigarda in the face of a control player with all his lands untapped and he will need a more creative way to deal with it.

Any guess this may be helpful against Delver? Playing this with the Soulbound Wolf sounds saucy but sticking with the wolf type is narrow. I'm imagining that for now the most named type will be giant so Titans don't run into Mana Leaks.
If Limited gets in the way of printing good Constructed cards... Screw limited
Uh, so let's see here... I have a humans deck, a werewolf deck, a vamps deck, a spirits deck, a wolf deck... so I only need 20 of these.
WTF why so much control hate out of wizards
now wtf am i suppose to do with that Geist of Saint Traft

no seriously, whiners should just stop whining at everything since most of their complaint ain't doing crap to the meta game as they make it seems to be.

I'll take 64 of these thank you.

I was considering returning to Standard with a UB Control. Maybe not anymore... fun card for Tribal Tabletop/EDH though
W/X humans and B/X zombies are currently tier 2 (are humans tier 1?) staples. I wouldn't exactly throw this thing under the "non competitive bus" just yet.
It's a good thing control decks don't also run removal or sweepers.  Oh wait.

Uhh...it's obviously competitive just for the "can't be countered" phrase.

Like...I expect Wolf Run Ramp to run this naming "Giant".

This card is UNCONFIRMED, people. It was reported on the Magic Salvation forums by a fairly new user, and the site's been known to make mistakes before. Until I see photographic evidence I don't believe it.

If the card is real, I expect I'll buy about 20 of them since they're so good in just about any deck that plays creatures.
Same guy who cracked the Thunderbolt and took a photo of it, so I'd suspect this is 100% true (given that the Thunderbolt in the image has new art and a quote featuring Nephalia).

Yikes!  This is so good.  I can also see it being used in control mirrors, naming things like "Sphinx" or "Giant."
Extremely good obviously but I hate it because it's going to be used against me alot.
As if my humans matchup wasn't bad enough already then they go and print this. Yell

Actually, I'm growing skeptical that this could be real, at least the way it's spoiled.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All was legendary, entered the battlefield tapped, produced only colourless, cost you 2 life to produce any kind of mana, and was a tournament staple.

Here we're being shown a land with a similar effect, and basically no drawbacks.  You can have it enter the battlefield untapped, and produce colourless for anything without hurting yourself.  You can even produce coloured mana with it, and it's not even legendary.

Great, I can see a deck now, a G/W/b ramp deck with four of this (naming angel), Herald of War  TWO of each mythic angel(well, probably not the U one)  splashing black for both Unburial Rites and Lingering Souls. if this card is true, this deck is going somewere, just not with me at the helm, darn college student income!

EDIT: might not even need black because of the freshly spoiled Defy Death. Watch it will happen!
I really hope this is fake it's OP in alot of formats and gives control basically no chance of being competitive in standard.

Standard control doesn't rely on its counterspells to deal with creatures, it has plenty of removal.

He was just shown to be wrong about Demonic Rising (his spoiled version was much better than the actual card), so this land might have some other clause he forgot to mention.
If true, this is interesting. And stupidy stupidly good. Kind of boringly stapled tribl land.

Tribal decks having uncounterable creatures is absurd not sure how you think this doesn't hose control.

Removal isn't exactly the best choice against Primeval Titan, Grave Titan, Elesh Norn, Geralf's Messenger, Inferno Titan, Wurmcoil Engine, Snapcaster Mage, Geist of Saint Traft, Strangleroot Geist, Huntmaster of the Fells, etc. This is bad news for control.
