Exploration (not the card)!

With everyone talking about Unstable's basic lands, how 'bout the newest set? I don't think Ixilan's been released yet, so what do you think? Will they be full art, Ixalan being an exploration set and all? And who else actually cares like me, :p
Nah, I don't think so. They've already made two "lands matter" art changes: the flipside of the transform cards, and the Jace feature lands. It's possible they have panorama lands, but with all the full art lands recently, if they made Ixalan's lands full art it would basically signal every other set will have them. Takes away some of the specialty. Not that I'd mind if every basic land for sets became full-art, but I doubt that'll happen.
Also, slightly misleading title. Exploration is a great card and I thought you meant it was rumored for a reprint in standard :P

Yeah, I do doubt that they'll have full-arts to. Probably would have preferred them in this set than in Amonkhet.
What are the Jace lands you referred to? I haven't seen them yet.

There's a bunch of basic lands that are basically pictures of Jace lost in the wilderness trying to figure out where he is.

Also I wish Exploration was getting reprinted in this set. That'd be amazing.
