Reveal lands are a cycle of allied color taplands introduced in Shadows over Innistrad[1][2] and enemy color taplands added in Strixhaven: School of Mages. They enter play tapped unless you reveal a land of a type that could produce either color of mana that the reveal land could produce.

Nicknames include: hand lands, show lands, shadow lands, and snarl lands.



Port Town
As Port Town enters the battlefield, you may reveal a Plains or Island card from your hand. If you don't, Port Town enters the battlefield tapped.
