Wastes (left produced by Kozilek, right by Ulamog)

Wastes is a typeless basic land introduced in Oath of the Gatewatch.[1][2] Wastes are associated with the blight left by the Eldrazi on Zendikar.

Description[edit | edit source]

Wastes cards feature only a colorless mana symbol in the text box,[3] despite having an Oracle text of “{T}: Add {C}.”[4][5]

Like any basic land, you can have any number of them in a Constructed deck. However for the Limited experience, R&D decided not to allow players to add any number of Wastes to their decks from a Land Station, but to limit players to what they open in their sealed pool or pick in a draft.[6]

Background[edit | edit source]

The concept of a colorless basic land is as old as Invasion. However despite being similar to the original concept of Barry's Land, the missing type puts Wastes in a different niche since it does not increase Domain.[7] Omitting the land type caused fewer problems than adding one.[8]

Wastes were spoiled early before the prerelease of Oath of the Gatewatch without Wizards' consent, together with Kozilek, the Great Distortion.
