Tresserhorn Sinks

This card, like the other four friendly-colored two-color uncommon Snow lands from Coldsnap, provides a lot of value for Coldsnap limited decks, while not quite making the cut for constructed play. In limited, Tresserhorn Sinks and its four friendly-colored brothers make your three colored Coldsnap limited decks feasible and make your two color Coldsnap limited decks even better. These lands don't seem worthy of constructed play, at least until snow land strategies become more valuable in constructed formats.

Tesserhorn Sinks

All of these lands aren't impressive. They aren't that much different than the lands from Invasion that we had for years. The largest difference though is that they are snow permanents. So, these help with any deck that needs a lot of snow permanents. Outside of that, they aren't very exciting. The game has a ton of multicolored lands right now in every format.

Tresserhorn Sinks

One of five dual snow lands from Coldsnap, this works identically to the 8th Edition taplands except for one thing-- the snow supertype. That means it can produce snow mana to give your Goblin Rimerunners haste or pump your Chilling Shades. The downside of this? Freyalise's Radiance and Zombie Musher are all that come to mind. So, except for those two cards, this is essentially a Blood Crypt that makes the comes-into-play choice for you.

In casual this and its ilk will definitely see play because they are uncommon dual lands, meaning they do almost the same thing as Blood Crypt but don't cost $20 apiece to get. In Limited, they're the best mana fixing there is and can even be searched for with Into the North. In Constructed, they're outclassed, but any snow deck would use them.
