The battle lands are a cycle of allied color taplands introduced in Battle for Zendikar.
The battle lands are noteworthy for being one of few dual land cycles with basic land types, along with the original Alpha dual lands, the Amonkhet Dual-colored Cycling Lands, and the shock lands.
They enter the battlefield tapped, unless their controller controls at least two basic lands.
List of Battle Lands
- A name for this land cycle was not immediately obvious, and suggestions included "base" (they work best with basics) and "tango" ("it takes two to tango") lands. The issue was eventually settled by the use of "battle lands" in a Wizards of the Coast article.
- Between February 13 and April 16, 2017, shops could run a series of fun Standard. If a player participated in six events during this window of time, they received a special Battle land promo card using normal card frame but Masterpiece Series art.
