The battle lands are a cycle of allied color taplands introduced in Battle for Zendikar.[1][2]


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


  • Wizards initially did not name this land cycle, and the argument for what to nickname these lands carries on to this day.[3] One of the names used by players and writers was Tangolands, from the "it takes two to tango" saying,[4] until Wizards of the Coast officially settled on Battle Lands.[1]
  • 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.[5]
