As a build-around combo piece, I agree that it's not going to break the format, but the RC doesn't ban things for being combo pieces (usually). If Citadel gets banned, it will be for the same reason as Prophet of Kruphix and Paradox Engine: An extremely powerful card that slots easily into any deck in the colors and can overwhelm games if not answered.

The Paradox Engine comparison is instructive. Paradox Engine does nothing by itself, but goes insane when combined with mana rocks. Likewise, Citadel runs out of gas fairly quickly by itself (as soon as you hit your second land), but goes insane when combined with topdeck manipulation or shuffle effects *cough*fetchlands*cough*.

We'll see though.
