Can a Evolving Wilds/Fabled passage bring out a Triome with basic land types?
Asked by zacktheprogamer 2 months ago
So I have been playing for a while and always thought that if the land didn't say basic land it couldn't be fetched by Evolving Wilds/Fabled Passage. Now I'm being told I have played wrong the whole time and that I'm an outlier who can't understand the rules correctly.
Evolving Wilds and Fabled Passage can only find lands that have the word Basic in the type line. This is exclusively the cards Plains, Island, Swamp, Mountain, Forest, and Wastes. If a land has one or more of those land types in its type line, but not the word Basic, it's not a basic land and can't be found by Evolving Wilds or Fabled Passage.

The other players might be getting confused by a couple of recent cards that can find any land with a basic land type: Slimefoot's Survey and Sprouting Goblin are the basic examples. However, this is not the same kind of effect as Evolving Wilds and Fabled Passage. Those effects specifically get just basic lands. If a land isn't actually "Basic" on the type line then they won't work.
