[Battle for Zendikar] New duals!

nde bannerJust a quick morning post, PAX has resulted in a lot of cool spoilers, and I will cover them all (Ulamog, Gideon, the chase rares) in time, but for now, the most important bits are these doozies:

prariestream(There is one for each friendly colour combination of course).

New duals with the basic land types is exciting, and even thouh these will be worse than the Ravnica Shock lands in Modern and obviously unplayable in Legacy, I’d say that they will go very nicely into two-colour decks in EDH. Perhaps even three-colour. The restriction, that you have to play two basic lands first to get them into play untapped, is a very interesting design and I like these quite a bit.

What do you think of the new duals? Leave a comment!

    They are, as you wrote, a clear cut bellow the Ravnica dual lands. I don’t think they’ll see much play in the eternal formats, but in EDH they’re actually quite nice. Not necessarily because of the mana they can produce but because their land types allows you to get them with fetch lands, rangers path, landcycling etc. Not to mention that they’ll probably wear a lower price tag than their predecessors.
