Greetings fellow Magic players!

We all know that we need lands to cast our spells. One third of most decks are dedicated to these necessary cards! But did you know that lands can do more than tap for mana? If we look through the complete history of magic, we find that lands can do everything from dealing damage to becoming creatures themselves! In this tier list I aim to bring to the foreground these powerful lands that you may have missed out on...

The first land on our list is Karakas!

This powerful land taps for a single white mana. For most players that is good enough but this card goes to extra mile by also being able to tap to return a legendary creature to it's owners hand... At instant speed! Wowza! The possibilities are limitless!

Imagine this line of play: Your opponent is on Norin beat down plan, a creature who is practically immune to removal. At times like this your Doom Blades and Path to Exiles are not worth the paper they're printed on. Then there's karakas... You cast Doom Blade and your opponents face contorts into a monstrosity of smugness. He declares this triggers Norins ability to flicker himself. He calls you a moron. He spits in your eye. Every one is laughing at you. If only they knew what you know! You point then at the Karakas that has been in play all this time! Then, in a booming and handsome voice say "Not so fast! I activate Karakas, targeting Norin, returning him to your hand!" Your opponent then is essentially defeated. Every one starts chanting your name...

And that is just one potential play pattern with Karakas...

This concludes my land tier list for Canadian Highlander. Tune in next time for my list of Magic cards that remind me of my missing son.
