The scry lands are taplands introduced in the Theros block. The five lands in Theros share their colors with the Gatecrash guilds, with the three remaining allied lands appearing in Born of the Gods and the two remaining enemy lands appearing in Journey into Nyx. The enemy-colored lands were reprinted in Core Set 2020 and Core Set 2021. The ally-colored lands were reprinted in Theros: Beyond Death.
All scry lands let the player scry 1 when entering the battlefield.
Later on, Zhalfirin Void was printed in Dominaria, and was the first scry land to enter untapped as it produced only colorless mana.
Dual-colored scry lands
These scry lands can produce one of two colors and are also called temples due to their naming pattern.
