Wizards of the Coast has revealed the new cycle of Magic: The Gathering modal double-faced (MDFC) cards in Zendikar Rising during the official livestream of the set reveal today. Check out the cycle of 6 MDFC land cards below:

There are three ally-colored rare lands and three enemy-colored rare lands. The cards include:

Clearwater Pathway // Murkwater Pathway (Blue/Black)
Cragcrown Pathway // Timbercrown Pathway (Red/Green)
Branchloft Pathway // Bolderloft Pathway (Green/White)
Brightclimb Pathway // Grimclimb Pathway (White/Black)
Needleverge Pathway // Pillarverge Pathway (Red/White)
Riverglide Pathway // Lavaglide Pathway (Blue/Red)

These cards will let you choose which side you want them to be when you play them, and they don't have a drawback, so I think they're great mana-fixers that will definitely see play in Standard and other formats.

You can check out how the new MDFC cards work in this video from WotC:
