Sea Gate Wreckage
One of the greatest things about the Elder Scrolls series is its setting. The various provinces of Tamriel feel as alive and as real as any place that their players have been to - and this is why there were people who were literally upset when they played Skyrim learned about the damage done to Cyrodiil and Morrowind in the events between the games in which those provinces were showcased and the present day. I wonder how many of our players felt the same way gazing on the ruins of Sea Gate. I know that New Phyrexia had that effect on a number of people.
In terms of game text, though, this card is not something to be quite so depressed about. The times you have no cards in hand are often the times you most need to draw cards, and since the Wreckage is a land, any deck can take advantage of this if it makes the adjustments we've talked about in reviews of the spells with the new colorless symbol in their costs. It's especially effective in decks with a low average mana cost, where activating this card during their upkeep, playing both cards they drew that turn, and doing so turn after turn after turn, will result in a snowball effect.

Sea Gate Wreckage
Well, if colorless actually takes off, it's good. repeatable end step drawing is always nice, and it's not so overcosted that it won't help mid to late game. not much else to say.
