Zendikar block

The Zendikar block is the sixteenth block consisting of, atypically, two large expansions Zendikar () and Rise of the Eldrazi (), with one small expansion Worldwake () in between. [1] [2] The block came out in 2009-2010. In design, it was considered an experimental land block. [3] Because of Rise's premise as a large set, it introduced its own collection of ability words and keywords, instead of further expansion of the previous mechanics.

Keywords and abilitiesEdit

Keywords/Ability words introduced in this block:

from Zendikar and Worldwake: Landfall, Quest enchantments, Trap cards, Multikicker
from Rise of the Eldrazi: Annihilator, Level Up, Rebound, Totem armor.

Keywords reused from the past: Kicker
