The Zendikar block is the sixteenth block consisting of, atypically, two large expansions Zendikar () and Rise of the Eldrazi (), with one small expansion Worldwake () in between. [1] [2] The block came out in 2009-2010. In design, it was considered an experimental land block. [3] Because of Rise's premise as a large set, it introduced its own collection of ability words and keywords, instead of further expansion of the previous mechanics.

Keywords and abilities[edit | edit source]

Keywords/Ability words introduced in this block:

from Zendikar and Worldwake: Landfall, Quest enchantments, Trap cards, Multikicker
from Rise of the Eldrazi: Annihilator, Level Up, Rebound, Totem armor.

Keywords reused from the past: Kicker

Banned cards[edit | edit source]

The Zendikar block is the most recent block to have cards banned in the Block Constructed and standard formats.
