Landfall is an ability word which signals triggered abilities that respond to a Land entering the Battlefield under the control of the player with the Landfall card.

Description[edit]

The landfall ability word rewards a player each time a land enters the battlefield under their control.

Landfall was introduced in Zendikar,[2][3][4][5] and expanded upon in Worldwake [6][7], the Battle for Zendikar block[8] and Zendikar Rising.[9][10]

Rulings[edit]

  • A landfall ability triggers whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control for any reason. It triggers whenever you play a land, as well as whenever a spell or ability (such as Rampant Growth) puts a land onto the battlefield under your control. It will even trigger when a spell or ability causes another player to put a land onto the battlefield under your control (as can happen with Yavimaya Dryad's ability, for example).
  • A landfall ability doesn't trigger if a permanent already on the battlefield becomes a land.
  • Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, each landfall ability of the permanents you control will trigger. You can put them on the stack in any order. The last ability you put on the stack will be the first one to resolve.

Examples[edit]

Example

Plated Geopede {1}{R}
Creature — Insect
1/1
First Strike
Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, Plated Geopede gets +2/+2 until end of turn.
