    Confirmed at the sideboard, (http://www.wizards.com/sideboard/article.asp?x=sb20010919b ) , the following card appears in Odyssey, and what's more it's only uncommon-

    Price of Glory 2R
    Whenever a player taps a land for mana during another player's turn, destroy that land.

    OK, so it isn't city of solitude but i still like it more than much of what we've seen so far... still trying to decide on how much of a drawback it will be for red to not be able to burn holes in things at instant speed, as weighed up against being able to punish blue control ( as pointed out, end of turn fact or fiction is spectacularly less desireable ) , but in the new standard at least it should be very harsh...

    A beautiful, beautiful card.

    Oh, wait.

    I play blue.


    The drawback associated with it is perfectly balanced with the hosing effect of the card. I LOVE how that thing was conceptualized. Perfect.

    The fact will never matter in Type II, but...
    ...Rhystic spells just got a lot better.

    Dang it. Now Red's so week it has to castrate itself to survive. This is sad.

    Anti-control... what? are you sure... this card is a real stonker for R/U only for Type I but... a nice deck with FoW/thwarts/dazes/foils and other ACC spell and this beauty... might make crappy sorceries worthwile to play... Im gonna build a control deck around this card... mmm nicey

    Hey wait... how about

    Sacred Ground
    1W, Enchantment, Stronghold & 7th Rare
    Whenever an effect controlled by any opponent puts a land into your graveyard from play, put that land into play.

    Price of Glory
    2R, Enchantment, Odyssey Uncommon
    Whenever a player taps a land for mana during another's player turn, destroy that land.

    Neurodeus: that's an insane combo.

    Sacred Ground + Price of Glory + Donate = infinite mana :D

    Yeah... I forgot donate... whoopy lot of mana... but a tri-combo... maybe a bit of draw
