Legendary lands were first introduced in Legends. Despite the drawback many of them were banned from various formats.

Legendary land cycles[edit | edit source]

Legends[edit | edit source]

The first cycle of legendary utility lands is from Legends. Each land produces mana of the associated color, and has an activated ability which can be activated by tapping.

Urza's Saga[edit | edit source]

Urza's Saga introduced a cycle of legendary lands that could produce huge amounts of mana of its associated color, except for Phyrexian Tower and Shivan Gorge.

Weatherlight Saga[edit | edit source]

A mega-megacycle of legendary lands representing important locations of the Weatherlight Saga. All of them are utility lands with the exception of Teferi's Isle, which is a phasing tapland that produces {U}{U}.

One land was printed in each of the five blocks that make up the saga: Mirage block, Tempest block, Urza block, Masques block and Invasion block.

Champions of Kamigawa[edit | edit source]

Another cycle of legendary utility lands was printed in Champions of Kamigawa. They work like the ones from Legends, but requires one colored mana in addition to being tapped.

Time Spiral[edit | edit source]

A megacycle printed across the first two sets of the block (Time Spiral and Planar Chaos). The fifth card of the cycle is a timeshifted card from Legends: Pendelhaven is therefore part of two different legendary lands cycles.

Gemstone Caverns can be seen as the sixth part of the cycle producing either colorless mana or mana of any color (depending on luck).

The Kamigawa block[edit | edit source]

Besides the cycle from Champions of Kamigawa the Kamigawa block introduced 8 more legendary lands as a part of its Legendary-matters theme. That makes a total of 13 legendary lands in the block, far more than any other block.
