Basic Lands are lands that may be tapped to produce mana of one color in Magic.


There are 5 types of Basic Lands; one for each color of Mana.


  • You can only play one land per turn. A basic land or just Land, aka non-Basic Land, is counted as a Land. (There are cards which let you play more!)
  • One land provides one mana to the mana pool when tapped.
  • You can tap them the turn they were played from the hand.
  • They get untapped at the beginning of your turn in the Untap Phase (before the draw and upkeep!)
  • A (basic) Land adds 1 mana of that color to your mana pool.
  • A land isn't counted as a Spell.
  • Playing a land doesn't use the stack
