They are, just with things like Crop Rotation, Expedition Map, and other "any land" or "non-basic" fetch.

What a missed chance for more alternatives to abur duals.

A medium 2 color land is not what i would tutor with those cards. I can imagine the value of "Forest, Crop Rot, sacrifice Forest, go get Forest+white, cast expedition map, go!".

I knowwww! It was perfect. It wouldn't have to compete with legacy players' demands nor be too busted to be too similar to abur duals with regards to reserve list.

And can you imagine the cash grab, especially if they had all 10? EDH players would be grabbing them like it's toilet paper during a hurricane.

sabett-blog asked: Why don't the battlebond duals have basic land subtypes?

MaRo: It increases the power level of the card so we can only use basic land types on dual lands sparingly.


Would a multiplayer fetch dual really be "too powerful" for legacy/vintage (the only sanctioned formats these would be legal in, I believe).

I know. Not saying you should or would, just that you could. Personally, I like Crop Rotation (and Harrow) with Flagstones of Trokair and Riftstone Portal. I wish there were more lands likes those...

Yea, it increases the power level, but it looks to be like the perfect power level for edh. I mean at the rate people play budget lands anb basics, the 'etb tapped unless you have 2 basics' seem roughly the same power level. One much easier enters untapped, but the other can just be fetched as well. It's really a shame, i'm just sad about it in a way.

And no i can't imagine any reason they would be remotely playable in legacy and vintage. There is virtually 0 multiplayer legacy/vintage and if you needed to add budget fetchables, it comes to shocks and that it's. Even cycle dual lands before these (if these were fetchable).

Idk, i shouldn't be too mad for too long.

Yeah that's a horrible answer. These would see zero competitive play outside EDH so I'm at a loss.to defend his answer. I doubt they would even make waves in EDH.

The only possibility I can think of where it's not a horrible answer is if there is some limited reason in battlebond that would allow for colors to be too easy to splash via fetching. Other than that its a total punt.

True. We may get answers in the decklist. Until then, I'll sit on my porch and complain.

I would doubt they added fetches to it but that would be cool.
