Currently this card is worded as:

Moonlit Landscape
Land -- Forest Island Mountain Plains Swamp
Moonlit Landscape produces colorless mana instead of its normal type.

But that won't fit on the type line if we ever try to make the card. Fixes like making it Land -- Island Plains Swamp and having the remaining types in the text box ("Moonlit Landscape also counts as a Mountain and a Forest") are really ugly. So I'm proposing altering the card to this:


Moonlit Landscape
Land
Moonlit Landscape produces colorless mana instead of its normal type.
Moonlit Landscape is every land type. (This includes the basic land types. It isn't Legendary or Basic.)

So not only is a Swamp Forest Mountain Plains Island, it is also a Desert Lair Locus Mine Power-Plant Tower Urza's.
This would make the card invaluable for Urzatron and Cloudpost decks, so much so that I am considering changing the drawback to "Moonlit Land can't be tapped for mana." What do you think about this switch? I think it makes the card even more interesting.

Actually, that is pretty cool. With two posts, your three lands tap for 6 mana, and with two tron, they tap for 4-5, plus whatever this one produces. And it's amazing for all those basic land requirement cards.

I don't like lands that can't tap for mana though, for the same reason Wizards doesn't. Maybe this could just not untap?

That could happen. The original impulse for making this card was to have one (fetchable) land that could activate all my Incarnations at once.

If it doesn't untap, it also has the bonus of being a one-shot mana fixer even if you can't take advantage of its many creature types, unless you put it into play tapped with Rampant Growth or the like. :D

Rules question: if I have this and one Urza's Tower, will that Tower tap for three? I technically control a Power-Plant and a Mine.

But then isn't it a lot like a better [card]Tendo Ice Bridge[/card]?

Yeah, I think this would turn on any part of the Tron.

Tendo Ice Bridge continues to tap for colorless, whereas this would be more like a lotus petal that doesn't accelrate you at all, but has the type benefits.

24 hour clock on the proposed change (all land types, does not untap in your untap step).

All right, Moonlit Landscape is now officially:

Moonlit Landscape
Land
Moonlit Landscape is every land type. (This includes the basic land types. It isn't Legendary or Basic.)
Moonlit Landscape doesn't untap during your untap step.
