Since then, "dual land" has also come to refer to any land that can produce two colors of mana.[1][2][3][4] Dual lands are often highly sought-after and fetch high prices on the secondary market. Popular dual land cycles have been printed in numerous sets, including Ice Age (pain lands), Onslaught/Zendikar/Khans of Tarkir (fetch lands), Tempest (pain lands), Apocalypse (pain lands), Odyssey (filter lands), Ravnica block (shock lands and Karoo lands), Future Sight (special cycle of different mechanics[5]), Shadowmoor block (filter lands), Battle for Zendikar (battle lands), Magic 2010/Innistrad/Ixalan (check lands), Worldwake/Battle for Zendikar/Oath of the Gatewatch (dual-colored Manlands), and Scars of Mirrodin/Kaladesh (fast lands).[6] There are also a few notable "triple lands" cycles that produce three colors of mana; a cycle of shard-colored triple lands was printed in Shards of Alara, and a cycle of wedge-colored triple lands was printed in Khans of Tarkir.
