  • Sweep cards require you to return some number of a specific type of basic land card to your hand as they resolve. The rest of the card's effect depends on how many land cards were returned.
  • Lands with multiple basic land types can be returned to your hand with any sweep card that applies to one of those land types.

Examples[edit | edit source]

  • Plow Through Reito - {1}{W}
    Instant — Arcane
    Sweep — Return any number of Plains you control to their owner's hand. Target creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn for each Plains returned this way.
