Favorite Basic Lands



  • Was in love with Unglued when they were printed, but since playing 93/94 I really grew fond of Alpha Basics. The colors, borders and artworks have something magical - but I'm not quite sure if they fit applications other than Oldschool and Vintage.
    For newer formats, I'd prefer Zendikar Full art or still Unglued :)

    Thanks to @iamfishman I'll be converting to Unlimited soon, but I currently take the following "looking crisp in my white tee" approach to mana:

    W
    U
    B
    R
    G
    C

    Ice Age lands... Brings back memories. There's also something kind of depressing about them, dunno what it is.

  • @Dumpsterac1d yeah i really like Ice Age as well, especially the swamp.

    @mickey-nobilis i like the artwork of the forest you have posted. Very unique! I am not a big fan of white boarderd lands if i can avoid them though.

    @thecravenone wow those plains! I totally forgot about those, i think i might have one of them lying around in a box somewhere. That is probably the coolest plains artwork i have ever seen. I remembered the swamp catching my eye as well, the artwork is really unique, i like the symmetry. I would probably consider playing those if they where available in the old border. The forest artwork is one of my favorites as well.

    @The-Atog-Lord That is a fine selection. I especially like the Uluru Plains and the japanese inspired Swamp and Island.

    @5space i didnt even now about the panorama plains! cool stuff. The Urza's Saga island is one my favorites for a long time as well. I always like eerie and silent looking swamps.



  • People shit on new art a lot but the basics from Kaladesh are pretty great. [Link]

    A couple of my favorites:




  • i feel lik that plains has tabernacle way off in the distance. @thecravenone



  • The APAC Japan Island is definitely super sweet. Not a big fan of the swamp though. A lot of people seem to dig it but to me it just doesn't look very swampy.

    BUUUUUMP

    Switched over to these on MTGO (have to say "switch" because of the interface changes which stack ALL lands in some arbitrary order regardless of set or artwork, ugliest in front [natch]). Huge fan of the Tempest-era look/feel of the game.
