Mutavault

Treetop Village just got some steep competition. This land doesn't come into play tapped, doesn't require colored mana to be a creature for the turn, and only costs 1 to animate as opposed to 2. And in Lorwyn block, "all creature types" is often a more useful ability than trample or first strike or... whatever Forbidding Watchtower has. The fact that you can animate just by tapping itself makes it incredibly useful for any "if you control a [creature type]" effects like Champion a, as well as "count'em" cards like Jagged-Scar Archers, Krovikan Mist, and Harpoon Sniper. The possibilities are endless.

Constructed- 4
Casual- 4
Limited- 3

Mutavault

To be quite honest, I'm surprised they printed this card at all. I thought they now considered Mishra's Factory to be too far over the power curve - much less a version that benefits from tribal interactions in Standard. I don't expect this to see too much play in formats where Mishra's Factory is still legal, but it should be played extensively in Standard and maybe Extended, most likely in mono-colored aggro and control decks. Not only does it avoid sorcery-speed removal, it can also attack for two on the second turn - it's the blue Isamaru. Yes, it really is that good.

Constructed: 4/5

Mutavault

I really have nothing to say. It's obviously really really good. A splashable 2/2 man land that comes into play untapped and even has Changeling? In constructed, it's in pretty much in any deck can afford some colourless mana.

In limited, it's not a bomb or removal, but it's usable in any deck and a great card if you're type to money draft a card. Weaker than in constructed.

Monday's card is Mutavault from Morningtide. you can tap Mutavault for a single colorless mana and use the colorless mana to make Mutavault a 2/2 creature with all creature types until the end of turn. As the newest land to turn into a creature, Mutavault is probably one of the best due to how cheap the cost is, the decent stats on it and the fact this helps out the host of cards that count creature types like Elvish Promenade, Summon the School and others.
