Dunno, that thing you're seeing as a technicality, I'm seeing as "Mana fixing, ALL the time I need it, not just in my own turn!"

On Harran Lens:

How is "Activate this only once per turn" different to {t}? Okay, technically you can do this once on your turn and once on the opponent's, but that's not really enough to prevent this being back to being worse than Mana Cylix again.

On Harran Lens:

That's what I get for using Obelisk of Bant as a straw man, eh? I should point out, though, that Chromatic Lantern isn't a good example either, since it's a rare, and we're talking about the common slot with this card. Manalith is probably what we both should have been pointing to.

On Harran Lens:

"More powerful than Obelisk of Bant" doesn't really work, because so are loads of modern cards: Chromatic Lantern is the most recent. But yes, a mana stone costing {1} is right out. Most mana stones should cost {2} and ETBT, or cost {3} and ETB untapped.

The Skyshroud Elf version of mana filtering is also arguably a bit good (and in fact this is stronger even than that, filtering to 3 colours not just 2). With two of these you can run Elemental Appeal, Dawn Elemental and, um, Invoke Prejudice and expect to cast any of them on turn 4. That's probably a bit too strong these days.

On Harran Lens:

To put it another way, Wizards thinks that Charcoal Diamond, and the rest of the two casting cost artifacts that produce one mana, are too powerful to print nowadays. This card, as printed, is more powerful than Obelisk of Bant (albeit in different colors).

On a separate note, I've always found it interesting that, while Mana Cylix is a very underpowered card (I'd probably last pick it in a Conflux draft, with a few exceptions, and never put it in my deck, with a few exceptions) it still has a rating of 3.250 on Gatherer. A lot of people like the card, even if it isn't very good. I don't think you have to push hard to make a lot of people like a three color mana-filterer. This is a step too far. Maybe something a little closer to Temple of the False God? "{t}: Add {1} to your mana pool. You may use this ability only if you control five lands."?

On Harran Lens:

I don't know what this was when Alex posted his comment, but this cycle right now is ridiculous. First turn acceleration is already dangerous, and is usually (always?) restricted to green these days. This can also produce one mana of any of these colors, in addition to being one of the best three-color fixers ever. Without requiring tapping, it singlehandedly fixes all your mana issues. Orochi Leafcaller is pretty good, its limited to using green mana. Mana Cylix isn't all that great, but I ran it in Conflux Limited. This cycle is a good idea, but it needs some number tinkering.

On Diodack, Lord of the Waste:

Ha, that would be very funny as a sideways exalted hoser.

On Diodack, Lord of the Waste:

I guess you'd want to reanimate various utility creatures - maybe if you're using the "If only one creature attacks, it gains +1/+1" stuff?

On Diodack, Lord of the Waste:

I agree it feels different, even though it's mechanically the same.

Does the "must attack" clause really do anything? It seems there's very few situations where you'd reanimate it, it would be able to attack, but you would care that it didn't.

On Diodack, Lord of the Waste:

There's two things that make the ability different from unearth. Instant speed and has to attack clause
