Lands are a card type in the Magic the Gathering card game. These cards are considered permanents, however they are not considered spells so you cannot counter these cards as they come into play however they can be targeted by cards that target lands and permanents. Lands are the main source for Mana in Magic the Gathering. When you want to get mana from a land you tap the land in order to put 1 mana of the specific color.

Lands, like all cards, untap at the beginning of your upkeep. There also Non-Basic Lands that act differently than regular lands. These lands may be able to tap for both mana, allow you to search for mana, or may even be able to become creatures!
