basiclandart.com is a repository for standalone art of basic lands in Magic: the Gathering, originally created mainly to help pick basics for a deck based on information about frame, plane, and more. Because of this, there are a couple special rules for what lands and sets are referenced here, which you can find below.
- Only paper printings are tracked, no online-only sets.
- The front face of the card must have an element such as the frame, expansion symbol, or border that makes it unique from all previous printings of the art in order for the set to be tracked.
- Only basics that are always legal in all formats are included. This means no Snow-Covered basics, no Wastes, and no reprints from Collector’s Edition sets. Sorry!
- Finally, the Foreign Black Border “Wald” misprint isn’t mentioned here.
