Hello again! Welcome to another day of Magic Rules Tips! Let’s start with a trick question today. How many basic land names are there? If you said five, you’d be mistaken! There are actually ten- Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain and Forest plus a “Snow-Covered” version of each (Yes, these are basic lands). With that said, it is possible to use Myriad Landscape to find two cards with the same basic land type that have different names. For example, I can find a Forest and a Snow-Covered Forest with the Landscape’s second activated ability! Pretty cool, huh? Don’t let this confuse you- the lands you grab have to be one of these ten basic lands and they have to have the same type. See ya tomorrow!
