If it were a creature, it would still bounce itself. ANY comes-into-play trigger happens when the thing is already in play.

Those bounce-lands are great in combination with lands with a CIP ability, or cycling lands like Barren Moor. In the early game, you can play the barren more if you are low on lands. Later you tap it, bounce it with one of these bounce-lands, and use the mana you got from tapping the moor to cycle it.

Of course, if one of these bounce lands gets destroyed, bounced or stolen, the tempo loss is plain horrible. Also, don't put too many of these in your deck. A starting hand with 3 bounce lands is something you surely don't want to see.

Awesome with Amulet of Vigor, and it's hilarious with that and both Tideforce Elemental and Ruin Ghost. Once you're done with your infinite landfall, you have to return an infinite number of lands to your hand. Awesome.

The Ravnica bounce lands are quite playable, but they are very lost to bounce or land-destroying decks. But if you can keep them in play, they are really useful, now even more useful than ever since mana burn has been "deleted".

I'm pretty sure that if you play this without having any other lands out, it will bounce itself back to your hand. It's therefore very slow to play.

Just remember, you still have to play play other lands. A hand full of these is pretty disappointing.
Personally the bounce lands annoy me because when I count how much mana I have I tend to just count the numbr of lands I have and these throw me off.

It does bounce itself if played first. Land doesn't use the stack. So when its ability triggers, its already in play.
If it were a creature it wouldn't, because playing it wouldnt resolve before the bounce effect.

If you play this on the first turn does it bounce itself back?

How is this better than playing a basic land? Seems like a turn four mana fix. Beautiful art.
