Target nonenchantment permanent and becomes an Artifact Land with ": Add to your mana pool" and no other abilities. (This effect does not wear off at end of turn.)
This relic is from Kudoth. This from Merquet. Oh, where are you from?

Why non-enchantment? Also, I'd consider making this an aura instead so it (1) has something to remind people that its a land and not whatever it used to be and (2) is less permanent. This also doesn't feel very blue. Polymorph effects are already on the outskirts of blue's pie (though I think they show off blue's laboratory, experimental nature just fine), and green would probably turn things into lands before blue would. Heck, even white probably turns things into land before blue. In fact, this card feels more white than anything, mechanically. But it's at a weird crossroads.

nonenchantment is there because you can't transform something nonphysical into something physical. At least, I don't think you can :/

I wasn't entirely sure on where to place it colorwise. I was thinking blue or green. Green because you are right about the lands. Blue because it does have a small history of turning things into artifacts. I don't see the white, though. I don't think I've ever seen a white transmute effect apart from the Zendikon. Maybe switch it to ?

If it's going to be an Aura that is vulnerable to removal, I would drop the CMC to 2.  Also...

Ma...gic?

(But seriously, the LHC would dispute your puny nonability to transform nonphysical things into physical things).

Well... Then you really have to start questioning what you mean by "physical".

Because it turns out we really have no idea what mass is. Even the Higgs feild is only a partial explanation at best.

Congratulations, they have activated your trap card!

I was more refering to the production of antimatter by interrupting creation-annihilation cycles off of high-energy (but decidedly massless, at least under the Standard Model) photon bursts.

I don't see the white, though. I don't think I've ever seen a white transmute effect apart from the Zendikon.

If we use the Beast Within clause, you could make it just green. But that's quite the stretch and there's plenty of debate that such a card should even be green. It's a tricky proposition, coloring the card you made. Multicolor is a fine way to escape total scrutiny. I guess if I had to put it in one color I'd do blue. If I made a white version, it'd just be a Path to Exile variant.
