In practice, this land will be playable in a wide variety of decks. But, it will take a dedicated planeswalker control deck or a deck that plays an unusually high number of legendary creatures to make it reliably cost fewer than three mana to activate. Still, because the Citizen has vigilance, it can be used on both offense or defense consistently.
Not being able to remain a land while it's a creature isn't a terrible drawback. It reverts back to a land on the next turn anyway, so if you need to keep mana open for your opponent's turn, it's not a problem. Having vigilance is enough to make up for the drawback.
Mobilized District is certainly a Standard playable land. But where this Citizen land should really shine is in Commander. There are decks that reward you for playing a lot of legendary creatures. It's too bad that Magic players did not have access to a land like this during the legendary creature overload of Kamigawa block…
While Mobilized District is no Mutavault, it’s a very playable land. Plenty of Standard decks will find a way to play it just for the cheap or even free creature every turn. It seems like it will become a staple in a number of Commander decks, too. What do you think of Mobilized District?
