Mountain is one of the five basic land types and provides red mana, which is required to cast red spells.[1]

Additionally, there is a snow variant, the Snow-Covered Mountain.

Mountain has been printed in more sets than any other card, including the other basic lands. It was the only basic land printed in Arabian Nights.[2] An Arabian Nights mountain is the rarest mountain from any set.[3]

Description[ | ]

Mountains are traditionally defined as elevated points of the earth's crust that have limited summit space and sheer sides. Their imposing image makes for striking and distinctive lands, often accompanied by a red palette. Occasionally the lands depict rock formations or outcroppings that are not mountains, and Zendikar in particular appears to have few real mountains, rather depicting floating rocky spires. Urbanized planes typically depict high spires and towers as mountains
