Eldrazi Temple

Personally, I think this card will catch on in Eldrazi decks much better than Eye of Ugin, simply because this can be tapped for mana. Only one mana if it's anything other than one of your big hitters, but that's one more than Eye of Ugin can provide. Sure, the Eye can tutor up an Eldrazi when you're ready for it, or an artifact creature for that matter, but this can be tapped to pay for other spells in the interim.

Eldrazi Temple
This is going to be a very popular card just because it helps cast those cool new Eldrazi titans. I'm not sure whether it's more purely effective than green acceleration effects, or than the Eldrazi Spawn tokens, but it goes with Eye of Ugin. And it got style.

Welcome back readers today’s card of the day is Eldrazi temple a new land from the latest set that unsurprisingly helps Eldrazi card. Eldrazi temple can tap for one mana or two colorless mana if you only spend the mana to cast colorless Eldrazi spells or activate their abilities. In standard this card will see play with Eldrazi cards and will more than likely have a archetype based around the Eldrazi and this card being at the center of it. In extended and eternal I doubt this card will see much play depending on how playable each of the Eldrazi are in these formats. In casual and multiplayer Eldrazi will be a popular choice as their power is unrivaled and the fact they are the newest cards available to dekbuilders and everyone will be looking to break them. Combining Vesuva with Eldrazi temple is an even better casual or extended strategy. There is a plethora of ways to aid in the hard casting the Eldrazi but this is one of the most effective. In limited the chances of getting this card along with Eldrazi powerful enough to draft in your decks is marginally slim but if you can assemble the pieces it would be a powerful strategy.

Today's card of the day is Eldrazi Temple which is rather simply a colorless mana producing land that can produce two for Eldrazi spells or activated abilities.  This is a must for Eldrazi decks for easy acceleration, but not much benefit for anything else.
In Limited this is worth running if you happen to get it in sealed along with a few Eldrazi cards, but is a hard choice to pick early in Booster.  If this is in your first pack the worst case scenario is not seeing any Eldrazi later on, in which case you have a colorless land with no penalty and kept it from being used against you.  Eldrazi Temple becomes a better choice as the draft moves along as you'll have Elrazi already and if passed to you it is fairly likely that player is not running any Eldrazi themselves.
Constructed: 3.5
