@caedafera - while I can see your point and agree that having both abilities makes it quite ambiguous, in terms of game mechanics it would HAVE to be only 2 lands per turn (including ones played from the top of the deck). If you think about it this way - you could make a deck of 58 land, an Oracle of Mul Daya and a Banefire. Mulligan until you get the Oracle (you don't need the Banefire, you'll see why in a sec).

Turn 1: land
Turn 2: land
Turn 3: land
Turn 4: land + Oracle. As long as it doesn't get countered, you'd activate her ability and play land until you reach Banefire.
Turn 5: draw Banefire, play land until your deck is empty (you wouldn't lose as the no-card-to-draw rule takes effect at the draw step). Charge it to a massive 57 power, and KABOOM. Uncounterable 57 damage. If they can survive that by turn 4, they absolutely deserve to win.

Honestly, I believe that the third ability overrides the the first. It says if the card is a land you may play it. Granted the first says you may play an additional land card I'm curious to why the third ability wouldn't state some kind of limitation or why the first wasn't stated as the last.

It says as its third ability that you may play the top card of your library if it's a land card....yet i see comments saying you are allowed to play only 1 extra land. where does it say this? the way it is worded says to me that as long as it is a land card you MAY PLAY IT. to me it seems that the people saying you can only play 1 extra land probably had they're butts kicked from a decent landfall deck

Wrong EvilCleavage! You can play as many lands as you want as long as they are the top card revealed on your library. The additional land playability is if you have a land in your hand for some reason and the top card of your library that is revealed is not a land... Read the card you will make sense of it. It's a creature that wants to be an enchantment.

The most beneficial ability Oracle gives is the ability to play land cards from the top of your deck before you draw. A lot of people don't really understand how helpful that is. Say for instance your next 3 cards coming up in your library are a Verdant Catacombs, an Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, and then an Arid Mesa (which btw is the Warp World deck I have been running recently in FNM tourneys). Before drawing, play a land from your library, then draw Ob Nix, playing him, then playing the next land from your library, saccing both and fetching a mountain and forest. that is 9 dmg, you have a 12/12, and if the next card flipped up by oracle is a land card, you can almost be certain you will either kill next turn or at least be able to play lands and draw something useful.

The playing an extra land per turn ability stacks with more Oracles btw, so you can play 3 land per turn from the top of your library if y... (see all)

very cool

You are correct sir! I had the same question and looked into it, and found out that the third ability's land counts as one of the two lands you are allowed.

Still good card however!

okay, not sure what I did to get a red mana symbol. I was trying to quote CR 305.4

Here's a question for the masses: If I have Oracle of Mul Daya on the battlefield, and I play a land from my hand, and play a land from the top of my library, and the next revealed card is another land, do I get to play that land on my opponent's turn?

You can't play lands before your main phase. That said, card advantage is card advantage. I'm pretty sure it's usually right to play the land from the top of your library first, before playing any land in your hand. At least, that's what Magus of the Future has taught me.
