A list of Lands legal in the Commander/EDH format.

Whether you're a beginner just getting into the format, or are a seasoned veteran who has been playing for years, this list should prove helpful.

Note: Lands that are currently banned in commander have been omitted from the list (e.g. Tolarian Academy, Library of Alexandria, etc.)

If you can think anything that needs to be added, please feel free to comment.

I think you forgot the hideaway lands... Shelldock Isle, Windbrisk Heights, Mosswort Bridge, Howltooth Hollow, Spinerock Knoll

I love them. .. well, I love 3 of them, the Black and Blue ones I find harder to play.

Prairie Stream and the other dual lands that function the same should be included.

A few utility lands I consider EDH staples:Homeward Path, Arcane Lighthouse, Ghost Quarter, Tectonic Edge, Strip Mine, Reliquary Tower,Temple of the False God, Rogue's Passage.

Sweet list indeed, +1 :)

Hybrow, redace10,

Thank you for pointing those out! They have all been added to the list. Strip Mine, and others like it, have been put into the category of Strip Lands. I've included the rest of the Battle/Tango lands, as well as all of the Hideaways. Everything else that was mentioned has been placed in Utility.

I've also added the Shadow/Show Lands as well, since I missed those too.

Myr Reservoir is an artifact but you have it under tribal lands. Overall though this is a very helpful list although I would say a lot of the lands aren't staples as you labeled the list.

Urza's Tower

Urza's Power Plant

Urza's Mine
