Aether Hub
This is a very interesting card to assess and to think about, especially when you note that the energy counter you get from the Hub itself doesn't have to be used for its own ability, and its own ability doesn't require that the energy counter comes from itself. It's not a versatile or universal card by any stretch of the imagination, but in a deck based around generating and using energy counters, it's one of the strongest City of Brass variants imaginable, and it helps ensure your access to the full range of cards that interact with energy counters.
Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 3/5
Multiplayer: 3/5
EDH/Commander: 3/5
James H. Aether Hub
Aether Hub hearkens back to Tendo Ice Bridge from Betrayers of Kamigawa in that it's colorless mana, but you can spend a resource to get colored mana. Its predecessor called for charge counters, and this iteration asks for Energy, which it supplies on entry.
Aether Hub is excellent in decks that can produce energy as a mana correction tool, and it's even useful outside of those for its one-shot effect. Aether Hub isn't flashy, and it's not hugely bombastic, but it gets the job done, and it's bound to be one of the star cards from the set.
Constructed: 4.5
Casual: 4.5
Limited: 4.5
Multiplayer: 4
Commander: 3.5
