I take it to mean non basic land types that say add one to your mana pool... my husband says it means just tapping basic lands to use to play other cards.. I did look in the basic book but I could find it specifically
Tapping any land. Also, this belongs in Rules Q&A.

I'm trying to make my official VCL posts in purple.

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.

Dual means two. A duel is a battle between two people. Lands that make two colors of mana are dual lands. A normal Magic battle is a duel.

Tapping basic lands for mana is adding mana to your mana pool. The only sort-of-relevant difference between basic and non-basic lands is that basic lands (in recent printings, at least) don't say this explicitly, while most non-basic ones do.

Non-basic lands like Golgari Guildgate do not put other lands into play or anything like that, in case that's the confusion. Land is not mana and mana is not land. Tapping Golgari Guildgate has the same effect as tapping either a Swamp or a Forest (you choose which as you play the ability), it does not put another land onto the battlefield.
