There are a lot of support cards for historic permanents but everything is so damn expensive.

Partially its cause they want standard to not be insta fast like it has been before, the other is that under costed artifacts tend to break the game. At 2cc 4 activate this is meh, at 4cc 2 activate its pretty broken in some other formats and maybe standard, at 4cc 4 activate its good but not pushed good.

I'm not sold on this. Quicksilver Amulet has its uses, but those are fairly few. Rarely would I run so many creatures that are so expensive that Quicksilver would present me good deals. As for this, it hits a narrower band of creatures, Sagas (most of which cost 4 or less), artifacts (Which there are easier ways to cheat), and most interestingly non-creature legendaries like Planeswalkers. Now, again, they're rarely going to be THAT much more than 4, but the timing issue also comes into play.

Ramp has a lot of tools in standard right now. Maybe this could go in a dino-ramp deck to get some turn-4 elder dinosaurs.

Edit: Using this with Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh would be sweet, but I'm not sure what sort of deck that would be.

It has potential if it doesnt hit removal.

When did the Thran make a temporal gateway?

To be fair, we don't know what mad artifice cities other than Halcyon were up to.

As with Quicksilver Amulet you have to remember that in addition to whatever cost reduction you're getting (mediocre as it is), you are also granting the permanent flash and running it around countermagic. All that put together is why this is 4 to cast and 4 to activate.
It most likely won't see standard play, but it's a perfectly fine card.

You're not wrong. Just more compelling reasons for a Thran prequel set
