Favorite set: Arabian Nights Favorite planeswalker: Taysir, the One Made of Five Favorite book cycle: Ice Age Favorite creature type(s): Elephant (W), Minotaur (R), Shade (B), Spider (G), Cephalid (U) Myr (Artifact) Pauper: Monoblack Control Modern: Zombie Tribal; Unyaro Stax Cube: The Moons of Mirrodin
EDIT: Oh, I didn't realized the effect didn't end at EOT.

That makes is marginally better, but it's still awful.
New 16 post deck?
and it's permanent... whaaaaaaaat
are there any situations where this is better than vesuva
huh I need a cavern of souls... IS THAT A CAVERN OF SOULS, mr. opponent? I can have it? Really? for only 2 mana? =D

Now it'd be better if you can change the creature type.
This is awesome. I see no reason why I won't put this in every single EDH deck I build.
Seems like an interesting way to get around Strip Mine restrictions in Vintage, though I think its added cost for copying might be a tad on the slow side for the format.
there's an exalted land, might be neat with that
Am I the only one who's going to quote Hamlet's stage soliquoy when I play this card? 
Hello 16Post!
I actually like this better than Vesuva casually. I've had many a time in my mono-red burn deck where I've held nothing but mountains and Vesuvas (and no Posts). Being able to change after the fact is wonderful.
I'm betting this is already a $10 card online. Amirite?

Questions though, if I copy a cavern of souls, can I choose a new creature type? or I got whatever creature type my opponent choose when he/she plays his/her cavern of souls? or I don't get any creature type at all?

The Everglades cycle.
This is so going into my 12... er... 16-post deck.
so for :2: you can blow up a legendary land, or for :2: fix whatever mana you need that you have only one of (like turning this into a glacial fortress if you only have 1 blue). You could also play this for the colorless mana, then when you dont need it can turn it into a manland via either inkmoth nexus, treetop village, raging ravine or celestial colonade to put up alot more pressure. Or if you are playing a steal effect and take whatever mana you dont have from your opponent to cast it. Seems interesting, and I like that it can be vesuva when you need it while still advancing your mana base and shift when appropriate. Seems good as a 1/2 of.

Would be hilarious to see two of these in a R/X (non green) deck, and use both to copy an opponent forest and wolf run. Of course, that would be EXTREMELY rare, but hilarious

You certainly don't get to choose a new one (that only happens when it enters the battlefield, not when it gets copied).
I have a feeling you get the one your opponent has already chosen. Don't quote me on that, though.

This is awesome, if only for the flavor. Not sure how good it would be in the obvious deck (12-Post) but if nothing else it's fun in casual and great in EDH.

Unfortunately, you don't choose a creature type as Cavern of Souls has an EtB effect, and this does not copy on enterring the battlefield.  When it copies a land, it is already present.

That said, pretty sure on the keeping the creature type thing, if at all(Which is quite possible).  Though that's a question for someone else.
Would be cool to have with bouncelands.

T1: Island
T2: Dimir Aqueduct, return Island
T3: Thespian's Stage, copy Aqueduct.
T4: Gratz you have access to 5 mana... and you have yet to accomplish anything.

Guys, you're all missing the point.

Now you can have your Dark Depths combo without playing black.

You get "undefined" (706.6, 706.7, 706.7a)

Fiddlesticks. ):
Hmmm... If I copy a man-land with this while it is activated, it doesn't revert to being a non-creature at end of turn does it?

Congratulations, they have activated your trap card!
Cute interactions with the Innistrad / Core duals, too.
Copy the basic land of your choice from across the table, drop your neo-dual in untapped.

it should still trigger and give you the token
it is on the battlefield with no counters for a short time

/edit: ahh, you can't sacrifice it ;)

Dark Depths has an "if you do" check, so since you won't have sacrificed it because of its trigger, it won't give you a token.

I like the flavor text. "Amid rumors of war, the third act The Absolution Of The Guildpact was rewritten as a tragedy." Well, that and the guildgate message pretty much point to Dragon's Maze as a guildwar set... now to think of who will be allies, or if it will be a big FFA.

Plus what is 16 post, may i ask? It's been mentioned a few times so far :s
EDIT: is it cloudpost and copy land abilities?

Since this lands keeps new stats permanently AND the copy ability, can i just keep copying my Cathedral of War to further stack exalted triggers?

An insane colorless mana source.

cloudpost
glimmerpost
Vesuva

were 12-post (4 copies of each card )

4 copies of this now makes it 16-post
