What's your favorite land in Magic?

Sorrow's Path

Ha, no, just kidding. Sorrow's Path is neck and neck with Wood Elemental on the Worst Cards Ever list. As for my actual favorite? Honorable mentions go to Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for powering up so many things, Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai for its charm, Zoetic Cavern for sheer weirdness, and Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion, for enabling many, many extra points of damage to be dealt.

But the favorite slot has to go to Mosswort Bridge, and to a lesser extent its cyclemates, including Windbrisk Heights and Spinerock Knoll.

Mosswort Bridge

I once saw director of Magic R&D Aaron Forsythe cast a Nova Chaser and piggyback off its 10 power to pop out a Deepfire Elemental from underneath Mosswort Bridge for the Nova Chaser to champion—and that kind of craziness is pretty typical when you can cast a spell for free at instant speed.
