I'm annoyed that wiz has chosen to print the new duals at rare. Go here for an example of one http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/feature/42a.

Hooray! Another $200 bucks to get a full playset cycle of lands!

I seem to remember a promise on dailymtg to make mana bases more affordable (how awesome are the cheap manabases in alara block?), but I can't dig up the article. Does anyone else remember this or is it just me?

That being said, expensive lands aren't the worst thing in the world, since they enable so many different decks as opposed to a given pricey non-land rare.

When LAND comes into play, choose either BASIC LAND TYPE 1 or BASIC LAND TYPE 2. LAND becomes a basic land of that type.

This is what it actually does:
http://www.wizards.com/mtg/images/daily/features/42a_02o4sozpie_EN.jpg

~NAME~ enters the battlefield tapped unless you control ~BASIC-LAND-TYPE-1~ or ~BASIC-LAND-TYPE-2~.
TAP: Add ~COLOUR-1~ or ~COLOUR-2~ to your mana pool.

due to them not counting as both basic land types, like the ravnica duals, and they wont 100% of the time come into play untapped, im sure they'll never reach the rav dual prices

If I were you I would make sure to hit up the Prerelease and get in as many games as you can...then sell the duals while they are hot...

If anything you could win the master...

The new duels are fucking great. It would have been great if they were uncommon, but whatever. I just hope there's only 5 and not all 10.

The thing that annoys me about t2 is that it is so easy to play 3+ color decks that Mono colored decks don't really see play. These lands are going to keep decks at 2 colors, which is cool
