Gitrog, Ravenous ride and MDFC

Asked by Chino90 1 month ago

Can I use The Gitrog, Ravenous Ride's saddle ability resolution to put MDFC (such as Disciple of Freyalise  Flip as lands onto the battlefield?

You will not be able to put the back face lands into the battlefield off of The Gitrog, Ravenous Ride.

The Gitrog, Ravenous Ride allows you to "put land cards from your hand onto the battlefield" not "play lands". The difference between the wording is slight, but important.

In all zones except the stack and the battlefield MDFCs only have the characteristics of their front face. MDFCs like Disciple of Freyalise  Flip can not be put onto the battlefield from The Gitrog, Ravenous Ride's ability. MDFCs that are lands on both sides allow you to only put the front face in off of The Gitrog, Ravenous Ride (Darkbore Pathway  Flip could be put into play, but Slitherbore Pathway  Flip could not).

If an effect were allowing you to play lands from somewhere besides your hand, or allowing you to play extra lands then you can put any face of a MDFC that is a land into the battlefield.

Thank you very much for the answer! How do I know which one is the front face of the MDFC?
