so many reasons these zendikar fetch lands are great:
1. find just the right land you need at the moment
2. the land you find doesn't come into play tapped!
3. activate landfall twice
4. thin your deck of land
5. for when you need a library shuffle
so worth the 1 life investment

No you don't.

This cycle is very very good.
Being able to pull lands out of your deck so you don't draw them next draw step is amazing, and they combo beautifully with non-basic lands with basic land types like these: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?text=++2+&format=RedBlack&type=+ .

Single colored decks can do without, but they are almost certainly a must have for multi-color decks.

I guess this is one of those skilltester cards. Anyone who is bad will say that this card sucks, and anyone who knows anything knows how great this card is.

And for those who complain about the pricetag, this card sees play in literally every format, so there are tons of people who want this card. And the people who play vintage and legacy are willing to spend 50+ dollars on a land, (See Underground sea) so they are certainly wiling to shell out 10 dollars for these beauties.

Lands are only considered to be of a certain type if that type appears next to "Land" in the text, which is exactly the same as how creature types work. Misty Rainforest only works for a Forest or an Island, which will have "Land - Forest" or "Land - Island" in that space.

Some lands, like Breeding Pool, are both a Forest and an Island, so they work with this land's ability. Even if a land is only one of the required types (say, Hallowed Fountain, which is a Plains and an Island) this land's ability will work with it.

Flooded Strand is neither a Forest nor an Island (nor is Valakut a Mountain, since it doesn't specify "Land - Mountain" in the text)

I've noticed that land types tend to be confusing, since most non-basic lands are typeless, save for Desert, Urzatron, Lairs, and Loci. It's also confusing because some lands that clearly look like one type (like this one ... (see all)

@Sandwich12345: Actually, there are important ways this differs from Terramorphic Expanse.

1. The card enters play untapped with this cycle. The Expanse brings you a tapped land. Important for keeping up mana tempo.
2. The Expanse can only bring you a basic land. This cycle isn't so constrained. Notice that it only says "Forest or Island", NOT "Basic Forest or Island". So you can potentially get things like Breeding Pool, Tropical Island, Dryad Arbor, Moonring Island, or Sapseep Forest. Those first two are the really important ones.

This cycle of lands is just ridiculous. I mean, they go hand-in-hand with the Alpha Dual Lands like Tropical Island AND Shocklands such as Breeding Pool. I would even say they are better than their Onslaught ally-colored counterparts because even though these are cheaper and easier to find, they are allowed in two major formats (Modern and Legacy) instead of just Legacy. It doesn't matter whether they are enemy colored or not because you only need one of the parameters to find a specific land. If it wasn't for this land or the other four, many decks would have a VERY tough time mana fixing if they weren't playing green. These lands are definitely one of the cornerstones of competitive Magic. For that reason, I can't rate them any lower than 5/5.

Best art of the fetch-lands.
And it can fetch a creature!

Or, they could reprint the whole set for a core set.

@ Thewrathofshame/ MasterofIdiocy

ok then, lets just make every good rare you can think of an uncommon too.

good land are valuable, this is my point, and saying "I mean, people are going to get a playset either way" applies to things other than just land. if R&D followed your logic, then they would make other good rares into uncommons... i.e. Vampire Nocturnus and Primeval Titan for example.

my conclusion is that great lands are just as good as great not-lands. both types of cards are equally valuable. you can't win a game with just land (exception = valakut) and you can't win without lands (exception = mox/preety flowers)

and just to spite you, i'm going to the card shoppe to buy 4.

Also, tantallum99 is a smart player, unlike you two.
