Most Magic sets nowadays come with full-art basic lands, but Tales of the Middle-Earth is a special set, which comes with its own special basics. Each one of them features a part of a map with the renowned places across the Middle-earth. In this article, we’ll take a look at the list of all Lord of the Rings full-art basics, and we’ll also explain where you can get them.
Let’s get to it!
Lord of the Rings Full-Art Basic Lands List
Here are the ten amazing full-art map lands that are coming with Tales of Middle-earth. Deven Rue, the official cartographer for Wizards of the Coast (and many other companies) is the artist behind these. They are based on the iconic illustrations of Pauline Baynes, whose maps adorn many LotR books.
Is There a Panorama?
One question players have about these lands is whether they form a larger map (or a panorama of sorts), if you stack the lands together properly. They do not.
If you have keen elf eyes, you might’ve noticed that the lands don’t even use the same scale. For example, on one of the Plains, you can see a close up map of a Shire. The Shire also appears – as a much smaller place – on one of the Islands. The same is true for some other parts. White Mountains appear on four basic lands.
In order to include a part of the Middle-earth, that could represent one of the five basic land types, you almost have to use different scales. Furthermore, you’ll inevitably end up with some of the same parts depicted multiple times.
Where to Get LotR Full-Art Map Basic Lands?
These lands will be available in all types of Tales of Middle-earth boosters. This means that you can get them in:
Currently, we don’t know the exact odds for the appearance of full-art basic lands in every booster type. What we do know is that you can get at most a single one per Draft and Set booster. A Collector booster comes with a guaranteed foil full-art map basic land. For the Jumpstart booster, the quantity of full-art basics is unknown.
Once we get more information about the odds, we’ll update the article with them, so make sure to check back soon.
