    Default Waterspout

    Waterspout 5
    Artifact (Rare)

    Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may search your library for a land card and put it onto the battlefield under your control. At the end of your turn, put that land on top of your library and shuffle your library.

    @Arix: About that...

    Here's how it goes down, ok?

    A land enters the battlefield under your control, right?

    Landfall effect #1

    Exile it with ruin ghost, then bring it back onto the battlefield

    Landfall effect #2

    With waterspout, search for a land and bring it into play

    Landfall effect # 3

    Exile the land brought into play with waterspout with Ruin Ghost and then bring it back onto the battlefield

    Landfall effect # 4

    Then the second part of the ability Waterspout has


    With Waterspout, you could do the landfall ability on cards a grand total of 4 times if you have Ruin Ghost out too...

    No, you can do it equal to the number of lands you have in your deck.

    A land comes into play under your control. This triggers. When it resolves, you fetch a land from your deck and put it into play. Hey! A land just came into play under your control! This triggers again. When that resolves, you search your library for a land and put it into play. Hey! A land just came into play under your control! etc. etc.

    the way your card is currently worded it will let you put ALL of your lands into play for a turn since each time you put a land into play (from its own ability) its ability will trigger again until you have played all your lands

    maybe you want to word it something like this like this (probably not great wording but you see what i mean)

    Waterspout 5
    Artifact (Rare)

    Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, if that land was not brought into play by Watersprout, you may search your library for a land card and put it onto the battlefield under your control. At the end of your turn, put that land on top of your library and shuffle your library.

    can be a cool card (once the infinite mana loop is sorted out) gives you a small boost of mana every time you play a land

    Ooooh... So a card like "Whenever a land comes into play, add one mana of any color to your mana pool."

    ... Oh wait... Lotus Cobra

    Also, you were not including a way to untap your Ruin Ghost.

    The Artifact could say "T: Exile target tapped land you control. Return that card to the battlefield under its owner's control."

    -----
    But if you just want a fun landfall combo with Ruin Ghost, use this one:

    Lotus Cobra
    Ruin Ghost
    Tideforce Elemental
    and a Plains

    hmmmm... If the land that was just brought into play via Waterspout was removed from the game with Ruin Ghost then the game would no longer recognize the land as being brought into play via Waterspout. Thus allowing to search for another land... and the land that was removed from the game then brought back would not have to be shuffled into your library either...
