Henceforth the "Amonkhet" cycling lands shall be known as "Bicycle Lands".

Either way they are forever the Bicycle Lands xD

Had the opportunity to call battle lands tango lands too, but look where we're at now...

Afaik, people use battle lands and tango lands interchangeably. At least in my experience.

Tango lands is at least catchy. I'm not even sure what battle lands is a reference to, but the "it takes 2 to tango" line is fun to say.

ok, but pronounced "bye-cycle" or "bye-sickle?" I like the former..

Here's a joke that will make your friends want to kill you:
What do you get when you run 2 Amonkhet Duals in a deck? A Bicycle.
Oh and besides, each of those duals are bikes anyway, because each colorless mana in the cycling cost is a wheel.
Ok, have fun. I'm not even sorry if I get chased after by some Unruly Mob.

Just want to point out the basic land types without any way to fetch in standard. We can't possibly be seeing fetches in standard so soon after Khans or MM17, so that begs the question. Are we looking at a new kind of fetch land/card in the near future or are we looking at a new standard for dual lands. Wizards clearly wasn't scared of printing Tango lands even when we had fetches. The SoI duals had basic type requirements, so including the types would have been too strong. The Kaladesh fast lands were just the second cycle of a pre-existing style, so it wouldn't make sense to change them. But going forward, provided that we don't get new cycles of pre-existing duals, I wouldn't be surprised if we get a whole slew of new fetchable duals, dare I say even some to compete with Shocks for Modern.

I know that players have been desiring dual lands with cycling for a long time, so these lands are great, but why are there only allied-colored lands? I really hope that there are enemy-colored lands in Hour of Devastation.
Also, the fact that these lands have basic land types is very interesting, so I imagine that either this set or a set in the near future shall have cards that care about basic land types (otherwise, there would have been no reason to give the lands such types).

Why do these lands have no flavor text? It seems to me that there is plenty of room on the cards for it, so was WotC simply being lazy by not giving them any?
